Acer America today is bringing its Acer T2 Series touch displays to
customers in the U.S. and Canada. Featuring a premium blend of
aesthetics and performance, these slender and elegant monitors
include the Acer T232HL with a 23-inch screen and the Acer T272HL
with a 27-inch screen.  
Both displays are Windows 8 compliant, enabling consumers to take
advantage of the features in Windows 8 with a 10-point multi-touch
screen, whether using a new PC or an old PC upgraded to the new
operating system. 
The new displays tout edge-to-edge glass in an elegant design that
will enhance any room in the home. Supported by an asymmetrical
stand, the monitors have an aesthetically-pleasing look. The stand
enables users to view images tilted back up to 80 degrees, which is
practically flush with the desk for enhancing comfort and ergonomics
to make the most of the capacitive-touch capabilities. This tilt
feature is especially beneficial for touch-friendly activities like
playing games, viewing photo albums and cookbooks as well as Web
surfing. The monitors 
also come with VESA mounts for hanging them on
a wall.  
"The Acer T232HL and Acer T272HL displays were designed with the goal
of maximizing the significant touch benefits of Windows 8," said
Chris White, senior director of product marketing, Acer America.
"Delivering premium technology in a sleek, modern and flexible
design, these new displays provide users with a dynamic visual medium
that users can enjoy for years to come."  
Leveraging an in-plane switching (IPS) panel, the Acer T232HL
delivers uniform color temperature at nearly every point for
consistent images even when the screen is viewed 60 degrees from the
center -- up to 178 degrees horizontally and vertically -- making it
excellent for collaboration and multi-monitor set-ups. The Acer
T272HL display has a vertical alignment (VA) panel, which also offers
excellent viewing angles.  
Both the Acer T232HL and the Acer T272HL offer a high 1920 x 1080
resolution, making them ideal for advanced 1080p Full HD widescreen
multimedia and productivity applications. These touchscreen displays
provide flawless moving images thanks to a rapid 5ms response time.
With an impressive 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio, these models combine
bright whites and rich blacks with superior gradation and detail,
especially in dim or bright scenes. Outfitted with the Acer eColor
Management tool, users can optimize image performance under different
viewing scenarios at the touch of a button.  
The touch technology is easy to use. Users just need to tap on the
screen to open documents and websites. They can scroll through web
pages, documents, play lists and photo albums and use their two
fingers to rotate, expand or reduce them to the size desired. They
can also write notes directly on the screen of the display.  
Both displays include two built-speakers and exceptional connectivity
with three USB 3.0 ports with charging ability as well as VGA, DVI
and HDMI ports for outstanding high-definition viewing. They also
have a high color depth of 16.7 million, while the Acer T232HL has a
brightness of 250 cd/m2 and the Acer T272HL a brightness of 300
cd/m2, ideal settings for comfortably viewing content from a short
distance.

standard three-year warranty.(1)  The Acer T232HL 23-inch touch
display will be available on Oct. 26 with a suggested retail price of
