[Staples] Acer 31.5" WQHD IPS 75 Hz FreeSync $299.97

https://www.staples.ca/products/2870765 ... gy-et322qu

Four day sale, although it lists a different expiry.

IPS 75 Hz, AMD FreeSync, has speakers. 3yr warranty.

Don't know if there's any active coupons right now to bring this down more.

Settings are as follows:
Mode: User
Gamma: 2.2
Brightness: 27 (for 120 cd/m2)
Rgain: 47
Ggain: 50
Bgain: 51

All other settings left at default factory but feel free to adjust performance settings to taste.

Commentary: Man, this monitor calibrated really nicely second time around! Probably because I remembered a bit more of what I needed to do for set up.

Gamut coverage is 99.8% sRGB, 85.2% Adobe RGB and 90.2% DCI P3. Gamut volume is 134.5%, 92.7% and 95.3% respectively. I was able to achieve a measured whitepoint of 6480K. Colour Temp, Gamma and Grayscale all tracked well, especially for a budget screen.

Enjoy!

I was able to achieve 100% SRGB with the following settings

Mode: User
Gamma: 2.2
Brightness 23 (100 cd/m2)
Rgain: 63
Ggain: 44
Bgain: 44

Colour Temp was measured to 6514k

I didn't bother calibrating for the other colour spaces as I never use them.

I think that covers everything.

Hope that helps.

Both my son and I are using this monitor, great for WFH with lots of real estate to work with. Pair it with a mount and you are set to go.

I think there's a generic $10 coupon going around from Staples.

I bought the Amazon one for $250 yesterday:
amazon-ca-prime-day-acer-qhd-32-60-hz-i ... 9-2409614/
Now expired.

For the extra $50 ($40 after coupon?) this one adds:
- 75 Hz vs 60
- AMD FreeSync
- Speakers

Otherwise the specs look the same.

In my case the slightly shorter height of the Amazon one works out better for my work space.

Got it for $240 plus tax a year ago from Staples with coupon. Perfect for WFH, couldn’t imagine working any other way.

I was too slow to grab the Prime deal 32" Acer yesterday, and it was sold out fast. I cannot find any valid Staples coupons from $10 to $30. All codes were deemed invalid. So this is a no go either.
