AOpen is special as it is designed with affordability in mind. It adds to our different monitor series that cater to different customer requirements, such as Nitro and Predator series for casual and pro-gamers who seek high refresh rate and response time, ConceptD for creators who seek uncompromised colour accuracy, and the Acer range of 16 to 43-inch monitors for other difference uses,”Johnson Seet, Director of Consumer Business, Product And Marketing, Acer Malaysia.
