When Are Most New Acer PC Screens Released?

Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any evident pattern in the release month for new Acer PC displays.

July was the biggest month in 2018 for new Acer PC displays, with nine new Acer PC displays released that month. 13 new Acer PC monitors were released in April 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new Acer PC monitor releases. In 2016 most new Acer PC monitors were released in April as well, with 21 new Acer PC monitors released that month.

.

How Fast Do Acer PC Screen Prices Drop After Release?

Most PC displays drop in price by 1% in the first 6 months after release, however Acer flatpanel monitors tend to depreciate faster.

In the first 6 months after release, Acer LCD screens drop in price by 2% on average. That means that on a typical Acer LCD screen costing £346 you could save on average £6 by waiting 6 months before buying.
