Acer has introduced two new factory-calibrated monitors featuring high refresh rates. Aimed at creators, developers, and artists, the ConceptD CP1241Y and the CP1271 offer great colours, low response times and up to 165Hz refresh rate.
The CP1241Y is a 24-inch monitor, while the CP1271 is 27-inch monitor. Both feature IPS panels with a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz (OC), FullHD resolution, and a 2ms response time. The rated contrast ratio of 1000:1, the 250nits of brightness, and the 8-bit colour depth allow these panels to cover 95% of the DCI-P3 wide colour spectrum. Moreover, both come factory calibrated to offer a ΔE average of <2.
The ConceptD CP1 monitors feature Adaptive-Sync to prevent tearing and HDR10. It also features a CAD/CAM mode for creators and illustrators using software such as AutoCAD and SOLIDWORKS. Using the CAD/CAM mode, the “lines and details of 3D and other technical illustrations stand out”, allowing users to work with these monitors more easily.
Both monitors feature 2x built-in 2W speakers, a DisplayPort, and an audio-out 3.5mm jack. The included stand allows the users to tilt (-5º to 25º), swivel (360º), and adjust the monitor's height (120mm), but users can also mount it on a VESA 100x100mm mounting bracket if they wish to.
KitGuru says: Which Acer ConceptD CP1 monitor would you prefer? Do you think manufacturers should design more monitors with high refresh rates without the usual gaming aesthetics?
