Acer ET322QK 32” 4K UHD LED Monitor, 3840x2160, 10bit Color, HDR Ready, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort, AMD Freesync, Picture-in-…

 

Just seems too good to be true to me. From what I can tell:

 

Pros

  • 32" screen
  • 10 bit color w/ 100% sRGB
  • HDR
  • Freesync
  • UHD resolution

Cons

  • ACER
  • VA Panel
  • No product website (as of this post Acer does not have a page for this monitor displaying the correct information)
  • Only available at Newegg

 

With Black Friday coming up I've been keeping an eye out for a new display. I love my HP ZR2440w, but a 24" display from a good 4 feet back is starting to wear a bit thin. It also has fairly "abysmal" 78% color gamut coverage. It was a huge step up from my old Samsung display with a TN panel, but it's 5 years old. I've been keeping my eye on the LG 27UD68-P for some time as it is a 27" screen, full sRGB, and Freesync, but also an IPS panel and, of course, made by LG who makes the panels. However, when you see a screen that's 5" larger for a good $100 less expensive, have to start wondering if dropping down to a VA panel is worth it.
