Viewing Angles

When viewed off angle vertically, especially from above the Acer's colors lose contrast or vibrancy at a narrower angles, or sooner than most AHVA, IPS and PLS panels, but black does not lose contrast, look obviously grey or white, washed out or glow remotely as much.  The horizontal viewing angles are also narrower; the panel looses contrast or vibrancy of color when viewed off angle faster than many 1440-4K resolution AHVA, IPS and PLS panels, but they cost more and suffer from more glow.

Glow

The Acer suffers from the least white glow  when viewing dark content and black out of all the LCD monitors I've tested aside from the extremely rare and glow free Samsung LTM270DL06 2560x1440 PLS panel in my Qnix QX2710.  The only comparable and widely avaliable panels with low glow are 32" 4K AHVA panels found in monitors like the Acer XB321HK, BenQ PD3200U, Qnix UHD3216R and Qnix UHD32R which use vastly more expensive 32" 4K AUO AHVA panels.  Best Reviewed Flicker Free 32" 4K 3840x2160 AHVA/IPS/PLS Monitors buying guide.

The Acer's narrower viewing angle for colors, or faster loss of color contrast and vibrancy when viewed off angle is not a problem for leaning back or reclining, or normal use.  The vastly reduced glow combined with the perceived black depth increasing white bezel allows the Acer to stand out and serve as a top tier display for the viewing of 1080p media and casual gaming.
