Acer upgrades the Ultra Slim iF design awarding winning S3 series with wide viewing angle panel technology.


There is always room for improvement. Even if we are talking about the award winning and sophisticated design of the S3 displays, a series of monitor that is rich of features and offers cutting-edge performance. Acer did just that and upgraded the S273HL and S243HL displays with wide viewing angle technology.

With LCD displays the viewing angle matters because you have the best visuals when you are sitting in front of them. If you move to the sides or are in a lower or higher position, the image quality can deteriorate considerably, with loss of detail and contrast. This is why a wide viewing angle is important, especially if you have to pivot or swivel the display or need to use a multi-monitor setup. 

And this is why the Acer S3 series monitor are now available with a 178° wide viewing angle, to offer users more flexibility and a better performance. More users can now view the monitors from different position and still see clear images, rich of details and with higher colour accuracy, allowing for better team working.

The Acer S3 series is the epitome of sophisticated design and top-notch performance. Besides wide viewing angle these displays are  endowed with cutting-edge technologies such as ultra-fast response time, stunning contrast ratio (100,000,000:1), two HDMI port and Full HD panels.

These LCD monitors flaunts a razor-thin profile, only 14.8 for the S243HL and 21mm for the S273HL, creating a minimalist, professional look. Encased in a classy black bezel, they feature a unique asymmetrical shape. Adding form to the tasteful and simple design is a cylinder hinge on the rear and an L-shaped base with brushed-metal finish, accented by an LED light that glows in soft blue when the power is turned on. Thanks to its distinctive shape the base can easily accommodate the keyboard, saving precious space, plus it skillfully integrates a speaker for added functionality.

 

Behind the tastefully stylish design that will appease even the most sophisticated taste looms a green heart, making these monitors ideal for environmentally conscious users. The S3 series falls under Acer range of EcoDisplays thanks to the energy saving design, exceptional thinness and mercury free materials. What’s more, the S3 series is covered by the Zero bright dot pixel policy for guaranteed display quality.

Both models integrate White LED technology that does away with hazardous substances such as mercury or halogen gases and allows the reduction of power consumption by up to 63% compared to to the traditional CFFL displays. What’s more, LED lamps not only ensure exceptional reliability and great savings but deliver a better performance. In fact, they allow the reproduction of a larger color range with better saturation: the result is extraordinary realism, unobtainable with standard technologies.

Designed for professional and multimedia enthusiasts, the S273HL comes with a 69 cm (27-inch) panel, while the S243HL has a 61cm (24-inch) diagonal. Both models feature with Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, enabling jaw-dropping cinematic views of the latest high definition content and making the most of advanced Full HD gaming, multimedia and productivity applications. The 16:9 aspect ratio is ideal to watch movies in their original cinematic glory.
Two integrated HDMI ports provide advanced digital connectivity enabling outstanding high-definition viewing and best quality video from the latest digital sources.

The S3 display series takes advantage of the latest display technologies to give users the best viewing experience:

Acer eColor Management technology adapts the performance of the panel to different environments, light conditions and viewing preferences enabling users to fine-tune the display settings by redefining the colour precision according to the work mode: data, media, cinema or images.

Acer Adaptive Contrast Management (ACM) dynamically adjusts the contrast ratio to achieve ultra-sharp images. Each scene is analysed to fine-tune images frame by frame and enhance colour quality, obtaining a dramatic improvement of gradation and detail, especially in dimmer and brighter scenes. Acer ACM also enables the LCD monitor to use less power and save energy.

Acer eDisplay Management is a powerful tool enabling advanced colour calibration and display management. Each personalized setting can be stored and quickly recalled for different applications and light conditions.
