Packaging

 

Acer has a great looking box for the XR341CK, with a stylish theme and great handles. Thanks to its weight, the handles are perfect for toting it from the shop to your car - or from the front door when it's delivered, to your desk.

The front of the box shows the curved 34-inch panel, and down the bottom we see it has a QHD resolution of 2560x1440, an IPS panel, sRGB, DTS sound, Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync) support, and HDMI 2.0 connectivity.

The back of the box is very similar, but we get a much better look at the Curved UltraWide display.

On the sides, we have some very heavy duty handles.

 

 

Detailed Look

 

Now, onto the monitor itself.

Starting with the front, Acer has a great design on the XR341CK, with an awesome stand and style throughout.

On the back, you can see just how much the glossy back reflects - so you'll need to device whether this is something you're into, or not. I think the back looks even better than the front with an aggressive styling, with a hole to route your cables through to keep everything neat. We can also see the connectivity at the bottom of the screen that we'll look at in greater detail.

On the back of the Acer XR341CK, we have an MHL 2.0-capable HDMI port, an HDMI 2.0 port and a bunch of DisplayPort connections. There's a miniDP port, and a full-sized DisplayPort in, and full-sized DisplayPort out for daisy-chaining multiple displays together.

On the right, we have a Kensington lock hole, USB 3.0 hub, and 4 x USB 3.0 ports.

The stand itself is sturdy, where I found the monitor sat well on my desk and for my shots of the screen itself.

And again, this time from the back, where we can see the cable management hole that you can use to keep the back of your XR341CK nice and tidy.
