Acer B286HK

 

The Acer B286HK is a reasonably priced 28-inch UHD monitor that delivers a highly detailed image, good gray-scale reproduction, and solid gaming performance. It's loaded with features, too, including an ergonomic stand, a USB hub, and advanced color...

Sharp Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) picture. Good gray-scale performance. Generous feature set. Fast pixel response.

Narrow viewing angles. Skewed greens.

Conclusion The Acer B286HK is an excellent choice for users who want to move up to a big screen UHD monitor, but don't want to spend $1,000 or more for the privilege. Granted, it doesn't provide the precise color accuracy and viewing angles that you...

A review of the Acer B286HK ymjdpprz 28-inch UHD 4K Widescreen Display with ErgoStand – B286HK, B326HK

 

The astonishingly sharp Acer B286HK ymjdpprz may have a rather bizarre model name that almost seems partly like something a cat came up with as it stepped across a keyboard but when it comes to quality, this 4K ultra HD monitor does deliver the goods...

Excellent refresh rate ; Great contrast ratio ; decent color gamut ; 16:9 aspect ratio great for gaming ; DisplayPort 1.2 ; Great angle viewing for TN monitor

loose monitor stand ; Angle viewing fails along bottom of screen in landscape ; Low quality speakers ; No DisplayPort 1.2 cable included ; No HDMI 2.0

For a budget 4K ultra HD screen, the Acer B286HK delivers in every important aspect of performance and is definitely worth the price its selling for. If you just want a gaming or conventional 4k content viewing monitor with 4K capacity, this is a fine...

Acer B286HK Review — Bigger Is Better

 

Offering beautiful colors, sharp 4K images and a handful of helpful extras, the B286HK is exactly what a 4K gaming monitor should be. The peripheral offers fantastic performance in exchange for a reasonable amount of money, and its few flaws — irksome...

Full 4K resolution ; Vibrant colors ; Simple, robust interface ; Helpful bells and whistles

Difficult setup ; Only two simultaneous inputs

The Acer B286HK offers gorgeous, accurate colors; full 4K resolution; and a plethora of display options at a reasonable price.

Nice Monitor when it works

 

If the new one work i would definitely recommencement this monitor it would be future proofing for a great price.

resolution is great. Stand is very stable and having all the cords included was very handy.

monitor was glitch y out of the box and spent several hour trying different things to get it to work semi properly. RMA it back and waiting for new one.

TERRIBLE GHOSTING / OVERDRIVE.

 

I would not recommand this monitor to anyone, and i'm thinking returning it.

-Gaming and playing movies in 4k is beautiful . Huge step over 1080p.

-1080p and less looks terrible on this monitor. (blurays are ok, but itunes movies in 1080p looks horrible) -HDMI 1.4 only....no hdmi 2.0 -GHOSTHING / OVERDRIVE -i had to replace the DP cable. My screen was flashing black time to time.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Went bad in 40 days. $400 lost.

 

I absolutely do not recommend this monitor. It's clearly trash, and several other reviews pointed this out as well. I was warned against Acer monitors from a handful of friends, but I "got a deal" on cyber monday so I took it. I should've stuck with...

Generally good colors, smooth animations, aesthetically fine.

It began flickering black horizontal lines and blocks about 30 days in (perfect timing, no longer eligible for return). I realized it had something to do with a connection inside the monitor because tilting it up and down would affect it. The...

So far so good!

 

Gaming at 4K is incredible. Smooth 60hz and fast response time. Surprisingly, I am not noticing any of the ghosting that other people have mentioned. In fact, it has less ghosting than my old 1440p 144hz Acer. I don't know if Acer has fixed this...

The obligatory speakers. But if you're buying a 4K monitor, you should have a decent set of speakers or headset. I can't imagine anyone buying this monitor intending to use the speakers as their main audio source.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Worked fine for 2 months then died...

 

I would not recommend any product with a 3 month life time.

Was ok for 2 months, I honestly didn't see the full beauty because it was driven from a laptop. My wife was the primary user and she used it for work.

What can I say? It broke in three months. It was working fine, then the screen just went white. Tried all I know to to without disassembling the thing. Disappointed. Quality seems to be a problem here...
