    Um No it doesn't it's neither listed in the specs or shown in the video on their website

    at 0:58 seconds it shows the back panel of this monitor and there is certainly no USB ports of any kind to be seen anywhere

    Nice price, too! Probably ~$400 soon after launch.

    Why buy this over something like the ASUS MG279Q?

    MG279Q $580:
    - 144Hz
    - Freesync
    - 2560x1440 IPS
    - Low Bluelight/Flicker-free

    H277HU $500:
    - 60Hz
    - No adaptive sync
    - Low Bluelight/Flicker-free
    - Thin bezels and newer AU Optronics AHVA panel???

    Too expensive if you ask me.

    Yep. Many competing monitors at that price range. Main selling point for thin bezels is to go multi-monitor. But why buy 2 x 27" 1440p monitors when you can get one 21: 9 (3440 x 1440). So this 'selling point' is lost on smart buyers who know their options.

    Well I don't know why it's so expensive now, but this monitor essentially goes directly up against the Dell U2715H.

    http://www.amazon.com/Dell-UltraSharp-27-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00P0EQD1Q

    Which is $540 currently -- I purchased 2 U2715H's for $400 each about 4 months ago. So why the price of both are up is beyond me, but I would and did pay a premium for a thin bezel monitor. I use them as my secondary screens and I think it makes the setup look more aesthetically pleasing.

    Dark shot but that's how I have it setup atm.

    With Dell I feel like you are paying a bit extra for quality control, aesthetics, and a good warranty.

    Acer's quality control has been a bit :puke2: lately. Some of the XB270HU IPS Glow images I've seen lately are pretty inexcusable. Gotta take pride in the products you put out there, especially when that product is aimed at an enthusiast customer base.
