Acer announced its 37.5-inch XR342CQK curved monitor this past June, and today the company confirmed that it’s now available in the US for $1,299.99. It’s okay if you can’t source that jumble of letters and numbers back to a specific product. Here’s a spec reminder:

  • 2,300R curvature
  • 21:9 ratio
  • 3,840 x 1,600 QHD resolution
  • Up to 75Hz refresh rate that works with AMD FreeSync
  • Up to 5ms response time
  • HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs
  • Four USB 3.0 ports and one USB-C
  • Stereo seven-watt speakers

Acer’s release follows the curved screen bonanza that was CES this year. As The Verge’s own Vlad Savov wrote, displays stood out this year, especially considering that most every company is buying into the idea that gamers want a curved display. Go ahead and treat yourself, Vlad also says. The XR342CQK is definitely one of the larger gaming monitors we’ve seen, as well as one of the more expensive.

Update February 6th, 6:37PM ET: Acer initially said that the XR342CQK has a 3,440 x 1,600 resolution, but it emailed us later to say the monitor actually has a 3,840 x 1,600 resolution.
