Acer B326HK

The Acer B326HK has excellent color presets and fast pixel response times, but very high input lag (30ms) and is usually not competitively priced.

Acer BX320HK

The Acer BX320HK has excellent color presets and fast pixel response times, but a ridiculously high 43ms delay.  It's fine for very regular desktop use and very casual gaming.

Acer BM320

It has high input lag (30ms) and worse color accuracy the the other two Acer's and the best 32" 4K options.

Review by Tom's Hardware

The Acer XB321HK is the only 4K 32" monitor with G-Sync, is less accurate and less consistent panel quality wise compared to the BenQ PD3200U, but the Acer does offer top tier gaming performance with 60hz overdrive or pixel response time performance which rivals "1-2ms" TN panels.  The XB321HK has G-Sync, a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel and a low glow AHVA panel, but suffers from significant gamma lottery and may need calibration with a colorimeter to compete with non-G-Sync panels like the BenQ PD3200U and Viewsonic VP3268-4K.

Review by =DEAD=

The Acer uses a 3840x2160 matte wide gamut AUO AHVA panel with color/uniformity compensation, Displayport, mini-Display-Port, Dual-Link DVI (3840x2160 @30hz) HDMI 2.0, 4x USB 3.0, 3.5mm Audio In & Out and a fully adjustable stand.  Since it uses a wide gamut panel the Acer's colors are vastly over-saturated for SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) content, but has multiple color space emulation modes such as the Adobe RGB, sRGB and REC 709 (HDTV/ movies), however, severe and non-reduce-able black crush is introduced when the color space emulation modes are selected, which makes them useless and leaves on at the mercy of their operating system and/or programs ability to use color management to prevent vast over-saturation.
