Acer XB270H Review

 

The Acer XB270H delivers where it counts, offering crisp picture quality and smooth G-Sync performance within a bright and colorful 27-inch display. Its flexible stand makes it ideal for both single- and multi-monitor setups, and both games and movies...

Impressive color and brightness ; Smooth G-Sync performance ; Highly adjustable

Only connects via DisplayPort

The Acer XB270H gaming monitor delivers impressive picture quality and smooth G-Sync performance, but its input options are limited.

Acer XB270H

 

Nvidia has hyped up its G-Sync technology since its 2013 launch, but this is the first time we've had one of these screens on the test-bench. Acer's XB270H doesn't just have Nvidia's latest tech in tow – it's got a 144Hz refresh rate, too.

G-Sync tech makes gaming really smooth ; 144Hz panel ensures ultrafast response ; Picture quality is okay ; Good range of ergonomic adjustments

Viewing angles not great ; Colour accuracy and contrast only middling ; Isn't particularly stylish ; G-Sync adds to overall cost

Great monitor when it worked -- died just over a year from purchase

 

Until tonight's discovery (and free time wasted trying to troubleshoot it) I would have given this monitor a 4.5 EASY... Now in good conscience I can only grant it 1 egg. You can make the best looking monitor in the world -- if you don't build it to...

Well consider I'm writing this review pretty upset right now , just tonight when I got home from work it appears this monitor has more or less "died"....I turn it on I get hazy "lime" colors in tons of greens and oranges in outlines of the acer logo...

I didn't like how it STOPPED WORKING AFTER A YEAR.. Yeah I thought that was kind of a bummer after dropping almost $600 on it in Feb 2015! i've owned many computers in my time, owned many many monitors in return (running on one of my spares as I type...

Amazing! Solved my problem!

 

Overall, if you are looking to upgrade to a nice monitor with G-Sync, this is the best route you can go!

Excellent quality and refresh rate. Crystal clear with sharp contrast. The G-Sync fixed the screen tearing I was having on my old 60hz monitor. You'll be hard pressed to find a better 27" with G-Sync for the price!

It's nit-picky, but the base is a bit of a pain to work around while attaching the cords since it launches out as if it were spring-loaded. Just be careful when setting up and it won't be an issue.

Fine when it works

 

Gsync is cool, and I like it. I can't really say what it's worth, though. These monitors are gd expensive and I've had 2 defective ones in a row. If you want to spend a bunch, go find another one - and hopefully one that does what you're paying so much...

It's big and it looks nice. Ok price for gsync when on sale.

The first arrived and died within 4 hours of use. It was replaced with a fairly simple RMA. But, waiting for stuff to get shipped and processed for a product that should have worked in the first place is weak. I'm a few months in now and a pixel has...

Decent, but possibly poor quality control

 

It's a good monitor for the $400 price tag, but due to poor QC I wouldn't buy another one, especially at over $600. An IPS G-sync monitor will be a better choice once they become more affordable. Acer isn't pleasant to deal with. I had bad color...

- G-sync is a great technology - Pretty acceptable color for a TN - Decent size for 1080p - 144hz

- 4-6 Dead pixels within 6 months - Extremely bad light bleed and distortion (visible horizontal lines on solid colors in the top right corner) - Controls are lackluster - Price (unless you got it for $400 like I did)

Acer XB270H Abprz Black 27" 1ms (GTG) 144HZ LED LCD G-SYNC 1080p Monitor

 

View angles are not bad for a TN panel but it can be an issues to some people. This is a gaming monitor. If you don't buy it for gaming, it is a waste of money.

This screen is amazing for those who choose 1080p as resolution for gaming ; I order this monitor on Monday and receive it on Wednesday. Fast shipping. Best tag price i found. Newegg are the best ; The refresh rate of 1ms and the g-sync gives a really...

Only one Display Port (not an issue for me)

Acer is not to be trusted

 

I honestly feel like i was robbed. I paid seven hundred dollars for a monitor that worked for under a year. then once i had to deal with acer support i felt like i was dealing with mobsters... i will never support another acer product for as long as i...

The monitor worked great while it worked

This nearly $700 dollar monitor stopped working very quickly and as a result i was forced to deal with acer repair services. I paid to have my non working monitor shipped to them (nearly 100dollars) then they simply shipped it right back to me with a...
