The Acer S276HL proved a pleasant surprise on some fronts and a slight disappointment on others. It certainly has a stylish design, but the hardware features are quite limited (stand, speakers)....

Excellent colour fidelity with factory settings (Delta E 2.8)
HDMI ports with MHL support
Wide viewing angles
Un trs bon rendu des couleurs par dfaut (Delta E 2 8)
La compatibilit MHL des prises HDMI
Speakers aren't up to scratch
Stand is quite basic
Some clouding in the model we tested
Full HD rather than WQHD resolution 2560 x 1440 pixels)
