u preaching to the choir here bro
Most the the Acers with S-IPS and VA LED/LCD panels are pretty decent and some of the CCFL lit panels were also
I have a real decent ~ 6 -8 mo. old Acer 27" 2560P LED /LCD screen on this one and 2 more decent 1680 x1050 24" Acer LED/LCD screens here on the other W10 desktops along with a 4 mo. old 55" 4K Sony XBR HDR TV & second screen on this PC and a 2013 1080P 40" Sony Bravia LED TV & screen no. 2 on one of the other PC's . along with 3 other 1080p TV's including a Samsung 64f8500 stonking good PDP TV and an SB i7 HP Elite book with the optional screen & discrete AMD graphics so I got lots of decent screens around here
I belive this Acer 27" is edge lit LED because it gets cooler to cold towards the top of the panel and Acer only specifies LED anyway & my edge lit 4K Sony HDR TV is the same way but it is much hotter on the bottom and can go significantly brighter than 300 NIT max on the Acer .
The 27"Acer can get decently bright and still have good color saturation ,contrast and .016 reference black indexing without clipping whites ,colors or W/W it was a snap to calibrate out of the box much easier than the TV's here but the 4K Sony wasn't bad at all and not far off reference bt709 calibration but its tweaked by me for bt2020 and DCI P3 wide color gamuts & WCG color re mapping anyway and looks way better than a bt709 TV even on regular 4:2:0 8 bit TV & Blue Ray.
regular 8 bit bt709 LCD & LED TV's & 8 bit PC screens outside the new HDR WCG TV sets and *maybe * 10 bit PC screens cant make good or close to real R,G,Y primary's and if you don't squash the blues everything else gets skewed thats a limitation of conventional LCD panels & back-lighting and the nano-crystal & Sony Triluminous panels afford the wider color gamuts on HDR TV's like you get in a theater and wont see on an SDR TV or PC screens a verry big improvement more than 4K even if you re map regular 4:2:0 TV /Blue Ray content a wider color gamut and higher color volume like you can do with a decent HDR TV without blowing it all up.
Obviously at .016 reference black indexing its a VA panel in the 27" Acer no S-IPS edge lit panel or any of them will come close to that but they make nice color & good detail also and better view angles some folks like them better on high end professional monitors and Sony's using them again in most of of the 2016 XBR 4K HDR TV sets but the equivalent 2015 Sony XBR 4K HDR TV like mine with VA panels all got significantly better reviews and test results so no buyers remorse here but I figured thats how it was coming down anyway I had some insider info and good speculation when I bought this one .
