Acer unveils new 3D computer monitors

Acer has unveiled a pair of new 3D screens for computer users that sound pretty darn cool. The new screens include the Acer HN274H and the Acer HS244HQ. Both of the screens use active 3D shutter glasses. The HN274H is a 27-inch screen and the HS244HQ is a 23.6-inch screen.

The 27-inch screen is the first to support both HDMI 3D and NVIDIA 3D solutions. That allows it to deliver 3D content if you connect it to a 3D component like a PS3 or Blu-ray player. It can also deliver 3D gaming using the 3D Vision system that has been on the market for a while. It has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and an integrated IR emitter so it will do 3D without having to use an external emitter.

The 23.6-inch screen has three HDMI puts, a 12M:1 contrast ratio, and a 2ms response time. It also uses an integrated IR emitter. This screen uses Acer 3D glasses, not the NVIDIA 3D Vision tech that the larger version uses. The 27-inch screen sells for $689 and the 23.6-inchs screen is $449.
