Acer have today announced the launch of the new S6 line-up of displays, following on from the previous S5 series, these new displays pack a new stylish design alongside some features that set them out from the rest, the most notable of which being the new MHL technology, which will allow users to display photos and videos from their mobile devices on the larger displays.
To do so, the user will simply connect the device to the monitor with a MHL cable, this will automatically sync audio and video content from your device, allowing you to stream content straight to the device, after which you can even use the screen to show play games and it will even charge your device whilst doing so..
The display also includes a new Zero Frame design, which means Acer have been able to increase the available space for the display itself, which includes a Full HD resolution, IPS LED panel, 100M:1 contrast ratio and a fast response time.
The monitors also include a 178 degree viewing angle, and can even be tilted to adjust the overall viewing position, all of which is an ultra-slim and space-saving design, the display is sure to fit on most desks or worktops, and with all the ports located on the base, plugging components in is easy.
he new S6 monitors will be available in two form factors, the 27 inch model and the 23 inch model, both of which include that aforementioned Full HD resolution and a contrast ratio of 100M:1, as well as two HDMI ports.
The S6 series will be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa from the end of May, the 27 inch model will set you back € 329 and the 23 will cost €189, there’s no news on a UK price yet however.
