[Best Buy] Acer ZeroFrame 28" 4K IPS Monitor - $350 - Exp May 28

4k 28 inch monitor on sale at BestBuy that's in-stock online. I picked one up in store on Sunday to test it out and I'm 90% satisfied with it. It has an IPS panel!

Only issue I have with it is that one of the VESA screw mounts was stripped. I didn't want to bother with the return/exchange so I'll live with it and figure out a solution for it.

I wonder how long it will be before a monitor that is advertised as "frameless" or "zero frame" will actually have no frame

Bought the Lenovo L28u-30 on the MS store a few days ago. 4k, 60Hz, 4ms, FreeSync, IPS. Same price of $350 (less 9% using XB Costco GCs). Loving the monitor. If this is similar to that, it's a good deal imo.

You can get that now as a projector. 0 thickness, 0 frame.

I did too...and the specs are exactly the same (as far as I can tell)...plus this one swivels and is height-adjustable (unlike the Lenovo one). They both support VESA so it is not a huge deal but if I didn't get Lenovo, I would have bought this one instead.

Do you expect a 120Hz 4K panel for 350 dollars? Can your games even run higher than 60Hz on 4k?

Ditto. Agreed.

4K 120Hz needs too much system power (GPU+CPU) for today's games. Even if you can do 4K60, that's amazing. I am barely able to eke out 40FPS in Control, that too with DLSS/RTX on at medium render preset. On the extreme preset, it drops to sub-30 in 4K.

4K60 itself is a ways out - 4K120 is a nice dream for a decade out, at least.

Yeah anything over 60Hz will be double that price, at least.

Very true in general. Getting 4K60fps is already a feat, but it depends on the game. 4K120fps is easily doable in Forza Horizon 4 and Overwatch, with just one or two tweaks of minor settings.

100hz+ monitors actually benefit low framerates because of frame doubling or LFC which expands the freesync range to below 48hz. You arent gonna get LFC on a 60-75hz monitor.

90% P3, nice.

If I didn’t just buy an UltraFine 4K I’d probably have bought one of these for my Mac.

Re the 4K120 talk... Decade out my ass. HDMI 2.1 supports 4k120 and the series X will be able to do it no problem on less demanding titles.

In a decade we’ll be talking about like 8k240 or something.

Im surprised at how well i can run games at 4k even on my rx580 at medium. I thought it would be a powerpoint slide show but many are quiet playable. I obviously drop the likes of AA and lower the shadows

Granted, my gaming needs are much lower than most people but still a pleasant surprise
