It also features a range of thoughtful technology that allows the monitor to adjust to each user’s environment: Acer ColorSense adjusts the screen’s temperature to match the ambiance of the environment, Acer LightSense detects the ambient lighting and adjusts the monitor’s brightness settings accordingly, and Acer ProxiSense automatically wakes the monitor when users are nearby or dim it when they aren’t.

The Predator X28 is a 28-inch UHD (3840×2160) monitor defined by a slim profile and narrow bezels that give it a refreshingly clean look.

The monitor also features the NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer.
Acer LightSense, ColorSense, and ProxiSense ensure that the monitor always looks as good as possible, in any lighting.
