Acer S277HK 4K monitor review

 

The Acer 277HK strikes a near-perfect compromise between style and quality.

That is a problem for Acer. Dell’s monitor offers a far superior ergonomic stand, better on-screen controls, and slightly better overall image quality. All of this leads to an obvious conclusion; you should probably buy the Dell.

Acer S277HK

 

The Acer S277HK is a smart-looking 27-inch Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) monitor that delivers a crisp 4K picture and solid color and gray-scale performance.

Solid performance. Sleek design. Delivers sharp UHD images.

Tilt-only stand. Lacks USB ports.

Conclusion If you're looking for a 27-inch, UHD 4K monitor that performs well and looks good, put the Acer S277HK at the top of your list. Whereas most reasonably priced 27-inch UHD models use TN panels that suffer from narrow viewing angles and skewed...

A Review of the Acer S277HK wmidpp 27-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) Widescreen Display

 

Joining Viewsonic's VP2780-4K and VX2475Smhl - 4K ultra HD monitors in being one of the first in the world with HDMI 2.0 built into it, the Acer S277HK wmidpp is a powerful piece of technology that also includes excellent specs such as premium rear...

Excellent refresh rate ; Superb contrast ratio ; Very high color gamut ; 16:9 aspect ratio perfecto for gaming ; HDMI 2.0 ; DisplayPort 1.2 ; Beautiful physical design ; Excellent off-angle display quality

No USB ports ; Possible lag due to IPS display ; Lack of VESA support and height adjustment

Despite its partial flaws, the ACER S277HK wmidpp is on the whole an excellent 4K monitor with some excellent feature that make it ideal for office and home use in casual gaming, video consumption and some professional design tasks.

Acer S277HK review

 

A bezel-less beauty

Price ; Bezel-less design ; Refresh rate

No USB ports ; Height not adjustable ; Not wall-mountable

The Acer S227HK is a beautifully designed display with fast refresh rates and a competitive price tag. If you don't mind the rear port placement and lack of vertical height adjustment, there is plenty to like. A gorgeous IPS screen and bezel-free...

Acer S277HK review

 

It isn't perfect, but it's good value

The Acer S277HK makes an impact with its angular white and silver design, and offers good image quality that’s only clouded a little by the applied anti-reflective film. An adjustable height stand or even VESA mount would subtract our problems with its...

Acer S277HK review

 

The Acer S277HK is a stylish Ultra HD monitor with fabulous image quality, but it's not hugely practical

The Acer S277HK is a very pretty monitor with excellent Ultra HD image quality. If you don't need an adjustable stand or USB ports, it's a great buy and one of the best-performing 4K monitors for under £1,000 we've reviewed to date. However, if you're...

Acer S277HK review: Beautiful outside, basic inside

 

The Acer S277HK serves up 4K with style – but is there any substance?

Reasonable benchmark results; Good-looking design

Mediocre image quality; Few adjustability options; No USB ports

Not bad in any category, but mediocre performance and a high price makes it difficult to recommend

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Beautiful monitor, bad light bleed.

 

--There is no automatic input selection, so you have to navigate through the onscreen menus to change the input. This can be very annoying if you have more than one machine connected to the monitor.

--Frameless design is definitely worth the premium. You will stare at a monitor for hours a day, so do yourself a favor and pay the small premium --IPS color gamut is very good. I don't have metrics here, but it's on par with my other IPS displays.

--Light bleed is rather poor. Watching dark movies in a dark room is an unsatisfying experience due to the bleed, which is almost exclusively in the corners. Usually I find monitors have them on the entire edge, but never this bad for a new unit....

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Gorgeous

 

Screen resolution and lack of L and R bezel gives this a 5!

Lack of VESA mount. If you want to mount these on a wall without the stand you are going to have to super glue brackets. Of course if you really wanted to get picky, these would be better with no bezel on the bottom as well.
