Acer B286HK Leading The Way On 4K Affordability

Everyone knows that when new, hot, technology comes out that it is always super expensive. You have to pay to be on the cutting edge of things. But, these are good times for people who need to upgrade their monitor. The Acer B286HK 28-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor is not only an absolute beast, but it also may be a sign of what's to come.

Acer's expensive, and highly sought after, B286HK 28-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor is actually everything it's cracked up to be. It is a 3840 x 2160 monitor capable of 4K video at 60 FPS over DisplayPort 1.2. It uses a TN panel which come people have complained about, but let's get real for a minute: who cares? This thing rules. It has a 2ms response time, 300 cd/m2 brightness, built in speakers and a built in stand that lets you tilt, swivel, adjust height, whatever.

When it first came out, this monitor started selling for $699, and although many people might have trouble justifying that much money on a monitor, I know many who thought that was a great deal! But it's getting even better, recently, the B286HK was spotted online selling for exactly half of it's original price. Which, if you ask me, is an absolutely wonderful deal.

I'm not writing this to get you to buy the B286HK if you don't need a new monitor, chances are you're probably reading this on a perfectly good monitor right now. But the point I'm trying to make here is that 4K monitors are becoming  much more affordable! And the second point is that these price drops might be a sign of even newer technology coming at us pretty soon. Can you say 8K? Either way, I'm excited to see this next generation of 4K monitors move into more mainstream price points.
