SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - Acer America today announced five new ultra-slim LED-backlit displays. Available in 20-, 23- or 27-inches and with adjustable tilt bases, their slim profile and sleek contemporary designs are also packed with top-of-the line features and technologies. They're ideal for viewing family photos and videos, watching the latest DVDs/movies or for business applications that require excellent resolution, contrast ratios and graphics performance.
With a 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio, Acer's new ultra-slim monitors radiate the brightest whites and deepest blacks. This advanced technology enables a dramatic improvement of gradation and detail, especially in very dim or very bright scenes, for stunning picture quality. Their quick 5ms response time reduces deviations in transition time, delivering stutter-free moving images.
Included in all the new models, the Acer eColor Management tool lets users optimize image performance under different viewing scenarios at the touch of a button.
The Acer S Series of monitors are also eco-friendly. Their white LED technology minimizes environmental impact by consuming up to 68 percent less power than standard LCD displays, ultimately saving on energy costs. Energy Star® compliant, the displays are also durable and constructed of mercury-free materials, further reducing their environmental impact.
