Acer unleashes a 49inch dFHD gaming monitor for 799$ (Php40k)? (NO KIDDING, See it here)

The best gaming monitors usually come in 24inch or 27inch variants. They have the best value for money and come packed with features. However, as you go for 32inch or higher, manufacturers tend to be a little more conservative so as not to reach exorbitant pricing. That’a why many would opt for dual 24inch or dual 27inxh monitors instead.

This 2019, however, manufacturers have you covered. Instead of buying 2 separate 24inch or 27inch, they’ve put it in one 49inch panel at double the FHD, technically a 27inch FHD monitor side by side.

Enter the Acer EI491CR monitor. While it doesn’t have the predator branding, or a cool gaming name attached to it – the specsheet definitely impresses. It’s got a 3840×1080 resolution, Up to 144hz refresh rate (via ox) and support for Amd’s freesync2 and HDR 400. The best part is that it’a listed for only 799$ at BHPHOTO as we speak.

It joins the rank of ROG’s XG49VQ and Samsung CHG90 who both retail for 2x more than the EI491CR from ACER.


We hope that it makes its way to local shores and that it stays close to the global SRP of 799$ to 899$.
