This week, Acer has launched its largest ultra-wide monitor yet with the XR382CQK, a 37.5-inch IPS panel offering all the benefits of the 21:9 aspect ratio and the added immersion of a curved design. It even comes with Adaptive Sync, so those who like to be productive but also play some games will benefit from additional smoothness.
Obviously, this 37.5-inch monitor wouldn't be all that great if it was sporting a 1080p resolution, fortunately though that isn't the case here. This is a 3440×1600 monitor with a 2300R curvature and 75Hz refresh rate, giving you the goods for productivity as well as some extra features that would benefit gamers.
Here are the full specifications:
- 37.5-inch UltraWide QHD (3440 x 1600) 2300R Curved Widescreen with Adaptive Sync Technology.
- In-plane Switching (IPS) Technology.
- Refresh Rate: 75Hz – Using Display Port.
- Response Time: 5ms.
- 1.07 Billion Colours, 100% sRGB coverage, and 6-axis colour adjustment.
- EyeProtect Flicker-less and Blue-light Filtering technology.
- PiP and PBP modes.
- Two built-in 7W DTS Sound speakers.
- Signal Inputs: 1 x Display Port, 1 x Mini Display Port, 1 x Display Port Out, 1 x HDMI 2.0 & 1 x MHL 2.1 (1x DP and 1x HDMI cable provided).
- USB 3.0 hub (4 ports) with 1 x USB Type-C Cable provided.
The mount here supports height adjustment, swivel and tilt but if you have a preferred monitor arm, then this is also VESA mount compatible. This new monitor should be hitting store shelves soon but it will cost quite a bit, with a $1300 price tag.
KitGuru Says: This looks like quite a decent monitor, though it is a tad too high-end for me. Also as a multi-monitor user, I'm not sure I would even have enough room on my desk. Are any of you looking to pick up a new monitor this year? Are you thinking of going for an ultra-wide, or are you looking into other options?
