Acer PE320QK Review – 32” 4K FreeSync HDR Monitor
The 30 1.5 inch panel has a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and runs with a 4k resolution so 3840 by 2160. Despite being more of a professional monitor than one for gaming, it still does have free sync available if you're using an AMD graphics card. The panel also runs at 60. Hertz it's got a 4 millisecond great gray response time so again, not as fast as other gaming monitors, I've reviewed, it's still decent. I had no issues with it in terms of ghosting, but I don't think I'm that sensitive to it. I'Ve run the UFO test and recorded in at 180 FPS, but slowed it down to regular speed. Here you can turn on boost mode and set it to extreme, which should help improve responsiveness, it's gon na peak brightness of 550 nits and with my own measurements at 100 brightness in the center. I got three hundred and fifty seven minutes so I'm. Guessing it only Peaks higher in HDR content, otherwise this is fairly standard. I also got a nine hundred and fifty to one contrast: ratio again, pretty standard stuff, it's an IPS panel and in terms of color gamut Aysen, note that it should have up to 95.7 DCI. P3 coverage, unfortunately, my spider 5 doesn't test that I was able to get 100 of srgb 83 of ntsc and 87 of Adobe RGB, while in standard mode now, let's talk about HDR ASA note that the monitor achieves more realistic natural images through an expanded contrast ratio And color palette using HDR expert, it doesn't seem to have any actual HDR standard like HDR 10 attached to it.
As far as I can tell as it's not meeting some of the requirements in HDR mode, HDR content did look better than without it, but if you're after proper HDR certification, you might want to look elsewhere. Hdr mode prevents you from using freesync or adjusting brightness aside from some H content on Netflix and a select number of videos on YouTube. There still isn't really that much available yet, but this should improve going forward, it's difficult to show on camera as I'm, not shooting in HDR, and you may not have an HDR monitor but basically there's, just more dynamic range. You can see darker and brighter areas easier. I didn't notice any changes, even while looking at the screen on sharp angles face a list that it's capable of 178 degree viewing angles both vertically and horizontally. I'Ve taken a long exposure photo in a dark room as a worst case. Backlight bleed test. That was some bleep picked up on the camera, and I can just notice it with my own eyes in a dark room, but I never actually noticed any of this while normally using the monitor, however, bleed will of course, vary between monitors, it's, not all just about The panel they're, taking a look at the rest of the monitor it's, got a matte silver stand which connects to the silver plastic base. The stand can be removed by unscrewing the four screws giving you access to the 100 millimeter vase amount.
You may have also noticed the flaps on the side. These are optional and there's. Also one you can put along the top. Basically they're meant to help the screen, provide you with better accuracy, while working with it by lowering external light sources and reducing reflections and glare. I don't really count myself as that. Much of a professional, so I can't say, have really made a difference to me. Personally. There are some holes on the sides of the monitor, so you can line up where they go then screw them in using a Phillips head. Screwdriver, the bezels aren't too thick around 6 or 7 millimeters or so based on my own measurements for the sides on top the base is a little thicker, but there are no logos or anything here, like you'd, usually see giving it a nice clean. Look the power button, three additional buttons and joystick. I found on the right hand, side towards the bottom. The joystick made, navigating the on screen display significantly easier. My only problem was that if you have the flap on the side, it can be a little difficult to reach behind it and get to the buttons. The back of the monitor is a matte black plastic. Nothing fancy going on just a clean professional look with the ASA logo in the top corner. I think that the what speakers are in that section just above the stand, mount point they sound pretty bad, very tinny and distant definitely stick to external speakers or headphones with this one.
The AO is on the back toward the bottom and faces down. On the left hand, side alright, when the monitor is facing you is a Kensington, lock, power, input and power switch on the right. There are two HDMI: 2.0 outputs, a DisplayPort, 1.2 output, USB 3.1 type C port, two USB type; a ports and 3.5 millimeter audio output. Once you connect your computer to the monitors, USB type c port with the included type c, cable you'll be able to use the monitor as a USB hub, including the two type, a ports on the back and also the additional two type. A ports. On the left hand, side which are easier to access while viewing it as for the included cables, you get DisplayPort HDMI, USB type c, and power, cable and it's also worth noting no external power. Brick is needed here. The stand is fairly big and solid and does a great job of preventing the panel from moving around even while intentionally bumping my desk, it seems pretty sturdy as for the overall dimensions. The panel only without the stand comes in at 29.4, inches in width, 7 inches in depth and 16.3 inches in height. The total weight is approximated to 17.8 pounds or just over 8 kilos. There are quite a few levels of adjustments available: there's, 5 to 20 degrees of tilt 45 degrees of swivel in either direction. Four point: three: five inches or eleven point: five centimeters of height adjustment and 90 degrees of pivot, sir.
How was the monitor to actually use coming from my 32 inch, 4k Ben key monitor. I really appreciated the thinner, bezels and tight adjustment, but otherwise, I feel, like I couldn't, really tell you many of the other differences visually. The panel looks pretty nice to me. I'Ve used it to edit a few of my videos and had no problems so far as for gaming, if you plan on playing games at 4k, you'll need a seriously powerful graphics card to actually push that many pixels 4k at 60. Hertz equates to just under 500 million pixels being displayed every second, pretty crazy. I'Ve just recently bought the NVIDIA r tx, 20 80 TI and all those super expensive. It is capable of playing many games fairly well at this Ellucian I've been using a 32 inch. 4K monitor myself for a few months now so I'm used to the size, but I don't think I'd want to go larger than this myself for up to date, pricing check the links in the description, as prices will change over time at the time of recording it's Going for around 850 US dollars, but I did see it at around 800 while making the video to be honest. I haven't tested that many other monitors with these specs yet to really say how it stacks up overall it's a nice monitor, but if you're after proper HDR, as mentioned before, you may want to look elsewhere. Otherwise, I found the monitor to work well and look great.
