    Top comment

    "Acer Ultra HD Monitor...I'm really glad I picked this monitor. I am using it for creating drawings and artwork and the color representation is fantastic. ...while the device comes calibrated from factory with a calibration report, i recalibrated using a SpyderX Elite which confirms between 98-99% SRGB. while it is more than capable of exceeding SRGB gamut into the greens and reds, it falls ever-so-short of 100% in the very edge of the blues I had color issues at first, but traced those to windows HDR control settings which were altering backlight dynamically - once disabled the monitor worked great. if you're a Pro... buy the higher end multi thousand dollar alternatives. invest in your tools. but for people like me that are hobbyists or enthusiasts who want a semi-decent graphics or editing monitor, I would say this is a good buy.
