I'm not going lie and sit here and tell you how much I'm sort of dead set against recommending any computer monitors manufactured by Acer. Just from my own experience in dealing with such devices, the reliability factor on a scale from 1-10 is a minus 1.
The past Acer monitors I've come across either had component defections or stopped operating altogether after about a year of usage.
Acer monitors though over the years have improved dramatically, to point I don't mind writing about anything manufactured by Acer, and yes monitors as well.
That's why when I read reports that Acer has just announced their new thin bezel 25-inch monitor, I didn't mind informing my readers the full details and specs.
Acer is marketing its new 25-inch H257HU monitor as a display with "zero-frame design" that's said to maximize viewing area and provide more seamless setup for multi-monitor setups. Looking at the images I've seen online, it's quite obvious there is a hint of a bezel, it's not entirely bezel free.
The monitor in whole is constructed in brushed metal, diamond cut stand, and very slim aluminum front bottom bezel, present underneath are a on-screen display (OSD) controls and a power button.
On the technical side of things, the Acer H257HU sports a WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution. Uses in-Plane-switching (IPS) panel with 178-degree wide viewing angles horizontally and vertically.
Acers states that the H257HU will cover 100 percent sRGB color space. To have sharp detail images, the monitor itself will offer 6 axis of color adjustment. The rated specs will include 1,000:1 contrast ratio,350 cd/m2 nits brightness, and 4ms response time.
The connectivity and features on the H257HU are a HDMI 2.0, DVI port,DVI port,DisplayPort 2.1, mini DisplayPort, and built-in speaker with DTS sound.
The Acer H257HU is not 4K which explains its very reasonable price point at $370 yet this is still considered by man and me a pretty good monitor. The monitor is now available for purchase.
