Acer's massive 32-inch panel gives you a lot of monitor for your money, but is bigger necessarily better?

Acer have combined industrial style with difficult usability with this 24-inch monitor
Whether it's gaming or movies, it seems the whole world is going mad for stereoscopic 3D. With that in mind, the 3D-capable Acer GD245HQ is probably the monitor of the moment.
At nearly £400, the new 27-inch Acer S273HL looks rather lonely. It's much more expensive than budget-oriented 27-inch monitors such as Iiyama's E2710HDS. And yet it's significantly cheaper than Dell's high-end U2711 uber panel.
We're not going to be harsh on Acer for wrapping this 24-incher in a sparkly orange costume. It's a slightly adolescent look. But at least it has pizzazz.
Compared with the new ViewSonic VX2435wm, the Acer looks like a bit of a poor relation, despite costing a few extra pounds. For starters, the grey plastic finish looks a little dull and uninspiring.
On the face of it, the Acer is an expensive piece of kit, with a price tag that's a good deal weightier than most 20-inch models. However, it's positively bristling with clever technology that more than outweighs the purchase price.
