Curious about it's DCI-P3 color coverage as that is important for HDR.. Might be lacking since they only mentioned SRGB coverage.

What exactly is the point of using a hood on the monitor?

To keep ambient light off the screen which always helps with image quality.

So far all that has been released is: Quantum-dot technology provides brighter images and supports the cinema-standard DCI-P3 color gamut (25%-wider color range than sRGB) to make the colors more realistic than ever.

So nobody else can see you watchin Pron on the subway

Yeah like a really bad song on the radio that the station keeps repeating and repeating.
In time you find yourself tapping your foot and singing along.
It's like being programed.

Could be useful I guess. I thought it was a office privacy thing which confused me for a gaming monitor.

ULMB is confirmed? Cool, though I never doubted it. I hope it is reworked, using a scanning method similar to Samsung's CFG70 and working at 144 Hz.

Ya, they could do some amazing things with that FALD back light and ULMB. Hopefully they flesh it out properly.

Found this:

Color Saturation sRGB: 100%
Adobe RGB: 99%
DCI-P3: 96%
Rec. 2020: 82%

From: http://www.anandtech.com/show/11304/acer-announces-predator-x27-4k-144-hz-hdr-gsync

So... it appears that for the patient there's not much reason to get the new Dell HDR monitor aimed at creative professionals as this Acer will offer all that does, plus the 144hz and other gaming technologies.
