Acer K272HUL


The Acer K272HUL is a modestly priced 27-inch, In-Plane Switching (IPS) monitor that delivers accurate colors, generally good gray-scale performance, and a 2,560-by-1,440-resolution image.

Reasonably priced. Solid performance. High-resolution panel

Tilt-only stand. Weak speakers. Plain design

If you've been itching to move up to a big-screen, Wide Quad High-Definition (WQHD) monitor, but have been holding off until prices dropped below the $500 mark, your wait is over. The Acer K272HUL is a 27-inch, In-Plane Switching (IPS)-based display...

A fantastic screen for less money than you'd expect

Expert review by: Sasha Muller (

Acer K272HUL


It's amazing how little you need to spend to get a good-quality monitor these days, and the Acer K272HUL is a prime example. Squeezing in a 27in, 2,560 x 1,440 panel for less than £400 is quite a feat.

Acer’s affordable K272HUL skimps on the features but serves up fine image quality for the money

Nothing amazing to see here, except the display


Absolutely incredible 2K display for less -- if you don't mind the thick bezel and the wobble this is a great buy.

- Gorgeous IPS panel - Significantly lower price than other 27" 2K IPS monitors - Unobtrusive styling

- Way too bright out of the box, not uncommon for monitors - Thick glossy black bezel, feels kind of cheap - Wobble wobble wobble, even a slight move has the monitor flopping all over the place

Great price, but NOT worth it


The price was good and the screen does 1920x1080 really nicely.

The monitor is supposed to be capable of 2560x1440 but that resolution is only supported on the DVI-D dual link port. The HDMI and display ports do NOT support that resolution! Also, after having acquired a dual link cable and minidp to dual link dvi...

Awesome monitor for the price


This monitor is crazy bright, almost too bright at full. Image is stunning at native 1440p, really good bang for the buck.

- super bright - nice color repro and contrast - good variety of inputs - big - no dead pixels :)

- need powerful hardware in order to run, but obviously not the monitors fault :( - Limited position adjustment

Perfect Fit for a Mac


For owning it a week and considering it's price point, I'm completely satisfied. After using this with my Mac, there is no way I could justify paying 4x more for Apple's version. I have mine mounted on the wall and it looks terrific. At first I thought...

Low price 2560x1440@60Hz Resolution DisplayPort + DVI + HDMI Clean design

Viewing angle could be better UI leaves something to be desired Contrast could be better for low-light applications (dramatic movies, etc)

Beautiful Monitor


Wasn't a fan of Acer (Asus & Samsung) but this monitor has been nothing but incredible Built in speakers suck but why would anyone use them? First monitor had dead pixel line. Newegg sent a replacement on 2 day shipping.

Crisp 2k Picture Games and movies look incredible Thin bezel

Perfect other than a cheaper plastic since its Acer.

Good graphics does not fill the screen with Windows



New KN242hul fine graphics Not the listed monitor but it's a Acer

Will not fill the screen leaves an inch of black around the windows, only fill the screen with Linux. Acer had no help to give, update drivers does not help, Linux out of the 'box' works fine.
