Found the answer to my own question. No, it does not rotate to 90 degrees as it is.

I do recall in the settings there is an sRGB mode, don't know if that helps anyone. I use these for CAD and spreadsheets so color is a lesser concern for me.

This is better than the Lenovo deal for me because of the height adjustable stand.

As for resolution, as I and many others have posted in these 31.5" monitor threads before, 1440 is closer to the 24" 1080p ppi than 4k. I have a 31.5" 4k and without scaling it's difficult to use. With scaling there are scaling issues in some of the applications I use. For productivity, IMO, this is the sweet spot. If you're on a budget, 27" at 1440 is also good. 24" monitors are too small and 4k monitors at 32" require scaling at which point how much of that extra resolution and 40% more cost are you really getting value from?
That is exactly why I decided to try this one. The PPI is almost an exact match with my Dell 24" 1200p Ultrasharp monitors. In the past, I've tried to use a 4K monitor along side 1200p monitors. It is awkward to have scaling enabled on one monitor and not the others. Some apps don't respond well.

It looks like they removed the shipping option. Can only pickup in store. Too bad.

Can we use this monitor for photo editing? Would it be recommended? Please let me know your thoughts.

Can you turn it vertically?
No mention of it in the reviews. Specs say swivel 60 degrees. You would need 90 degrees to get to portrait mode, so don't think it has the feature. Bummer because I put one of my external monitor into portrait mode for reading documents.

I picked up one from the store and try it with my MacBook Pro as mirror display. Let's see if I am going to like it since I didn't like the view on 27" 1080P monitor.

How do you guys compare to this one:

https://www.officedepot.com/a/pro...D-Monitor/

This one seems to be able "Stand Adjustments Swivel; Pivot; Tilt; Height "

Has speaker integrated.

Thanks for the feedback! Can you please help me understand the difficulty reading on a 27 inch or 31.5 at 4K? For example, the 27 inch dell U2720Q 4K ppi is 163 at native resolution. But my MBP 16 inch ppi is 226 and I can read text easily. Why is 4K so much harder to read on a larger monitor when 3072×1920 looks amazing on a 16 inch laptop screen?

I have two 1920x1200 monitors I'm looking to upgrade with 2k or 4K. Thanks!

Luckily found the last one within 50 miles at a store close to one of my field sales offices. Living in California, I often miss these deals because they get snagged so quickly. I picked up the 24" Lenovo QHD 2 weeks ago with plans of it being my vert reader/excel screen and was keeping eyes out for a good 27"/32" for my main. Anyone have any recommendations for a good Thunderbolt 3 dock with a dual out HDMI or Displayport? I've been looking at the 2 below, with the Monoprice for just a budget option.

Doesnot look like the same monitor. This one seems to have 10 bit depth but I am not sure. I will order one to check out. BTW, what is the return policy of office depot for monitors? Can it be returned free after opening the box? For how long?
They said 14 days with no restocking fee in the store even though their website says otherwise.

I purchased this earlier today and set it up. I was very disappointed by the display. It was dim (even at max brightness) and the brightness falls significantly with angle. I have a dual monitor setup, so I was not directly in the center of the display, and there was a marked gradation in brightness from left to right.

On my existing 1080p Samsung 32" monitors, the display is much brighter, with almost no drop in brightness left to right. I thought IPS monitors are supposed to be less affected by viewing angle. My existing Samsung 32" 1080p monitors are VA panels and look much better than this Acer IPS, except for the lower resolution.

I will be returning these and look for something better.
