Acer B296CL

 

The Acer B296CL is a reasonably priced 29-inch Ultra-wide monitor offering a generous selection of ports, solid IPS color performance, and an ergonomic stand.

Solid color and grayscale performance. Plenty of I/O ports. Highly adjustable stand.

Mediocre vertical viewing angle. No auto-rotate feature.

For users requiring a dual-monitor setup, the Acer B296CL offers a space saving alternative that won't break the bank. Its 29-inch ultra-wide IPS screen delivers rich, accurate colors and solid grayscale performance, and it provides all the...

ACER B296CL

 

29″ Ultrawide Display The Acer B296CL 29″ LCD display has a native resolution of 2560×1080 and a unique aspect ratio of 21:9, making this ultrawide display excellent in an office environment for viewing spreadsheets, multipage documents, Web pages, or...

Connectivity; accurate color

Speakers; height

The comprehensive I/O connectivity for the Acer B296CL I/O includes DVI, two HDMI, DisplayPort, 4-port USB 3 hub, and it all comes packaged with the necessary cables. It’s a solid performer except for the somewhat anemic 2-watt internal speakers, and...

Acer B296CL ultra-widescreen LCD monitor

The Acer B296CL is a reasonably priced 29-inch Ultra-wide monitor offering a generous selection of ports, solid IPS color performance, and an ergonomic stand. Its issues—the panel loses some luminance when viewed from an extreme vertical angle, and the...

Wow...

 

What a beautiful Screen at an awesome price. This monitor is a little smaller in height vs a standard 24" monitor but just awesomely wide. 3 layout pages wide. Colors look great and I see no dead pixels

Im getting a flashing on my PS4 where the screen goes black intermittently. This doesn't happen with my computer connection though. Ive googled around and its either the HDCP or Deep color setting on the PS4. I will try setting them off when I get...

Beautiful

 

Overall I feel satisfied about my decision to buy this monitor. I was on a 24in 1080x1920 and while I was happy with it I wanted to get something bigger and with better display for gaming. This machine is a beast, even when it's off it looks great on...

Great quality screen, bright, vibrant colors, great viewing angels and no dead pixels

I already want a 32in, but that's just me being crazy. Another con is that you'll want to spend more money on another one just like it
