Acer hosted their own Computex 2023 venue at Xiangti Avenue which is around the Breeze shopping mall at Taipei – and they do have a lot of new stuff that we have to talk about.
And hey – if you want to watch the video version of this coverage, then here you go!
Predator OLED monitors
We’ll start off with the Predator section first. Here, we were shown the brand new Predator X45 monitor – which is a 45-inch curved ultrawide (with 800R curvature) OLED monitor with a resolution of 3440×1440 and also 240Hz refresh rate.
This looks absolutely amazing and I’m glad the showcase location is outdoors because the OLED monitor can actually beat out the bright sunlight when we were there. I mean, that’s one of the main advantages of OLED – the brightness is just amazing.
But, if you’re not a fan of this big display but still want an OLED monitor, then you can choose the Predator X27U too. It’s a 240Hz 1440p monitor with 16:9 aspect ratio – and will definitely fit in everyone’s gaming setup.
Both the Predator X45 and Predator X27U have USB-C input and 90W of USB-PD charging too. That means you can use your laptop with the monitor – and there is a KVM built-in too! Switching between your laptop and desktop (assuming that you’re going to use this monitor on two computers) is going to be a whole lot more convenient.
We’re familiar with the Acerpure brand – they have vacuum cleaners, fans, air purifiers – and even water purifiers now.
The new fan that we were shown have much more flexibility in terms of how tall you want it to be. It can be a tabletop fan but you can use the extension and make it a standfan too.
You can also easily control the fan with a remote control or just set it to automatic and let it do its thing.
As for the gamer-looking air purifier, this is the Acerpure Pro UVC and it is meant to be placed in larger spaces as it can clean a much larger area. The demo we did in the video above this article also showed how fast it can clear up all of the air too.
It can take in all from all 4 sides of the purifier, has HEPA filter alongside UV cleaning (hence the name UVC) to kill bacteria – and has RGB LED lights at the top to show what’s the air quality like, alongside a screen to show the status.
The existing Acerpure Pro air purifier also has a Vero variant too – made out of post-consumer recycled plastic. There are differences between the Vero and the OG version though.
The Vero variant does not have app connectivity and the screen at the top are now just a few buttons. I think it doesn’t actually matter since we just turn it on, set it up once and let it do its thing.
Now, for the water purifiers. They are parked under the Acerpure Aqua series and both of them functions differently. The one on the left is an all-in-one unit that is untethered from the wall – so you can bring it wherever you want.
You can even select the temperature too – down to 10°C. Just remember to fill in the water tank behind the unit because it is indeed and untethered unit.
As for the water purifier on the right side, it is an under-sink unit. It has double RO filtration system and outputs the water through your kitchen sink faucet. It is meant to save space and I think they did a really good job with it.
It will also automatically cleanse itself.
