Acer XB270HU review

 

The Acer XB270HU is a top-notch display with a great feature set for gamers, but the price tag puts it in league with 4K displays, including Acer's own.

If you’re looking for a new gaming monitor to upgrade from your 1080p to something higher resolution, this Acer is a solid choice if money is no object. Most gamers have a budget of some sort, though, and the $800 price tag on this display will take a...

Acer XB270HU

 

The Acer XB270HU is a 27-inch monitor that uses In-Plane Switching and G-Sync technologies to deliver a great gaming experience.

Excellent gaming scores in our tests. Solid color and gray-scale performance. Fully adjustable stand.

Pricey. Only one video input.

Conclusion With the Acer XB270HU, gamers can enjoy the rich colors and wide viewing angles that IPS panels are known for, while taking advantage of Nvida's G-Sync anti-tearing technology. Gaming performance is great on this monitor, and it delivers...

Acer XB270HU 27-Inch IPS 144Hz G-Sync Monitor Review

 

Acer's XB270HU is one of the only IPS screens that can run at 144Hz. We'll see how the G-Sync monitor fares in our video performance and gaming tests.

G-Sync, 144Hz, QHD resolution, IPS/AHVA panel, ULMB blur-reduction, accurate color, grayscale and gamma, excellent contrast, bright picture

Blur-reduction is non-adjustable, expensive

There’s no doubt that an IPS monitor is preferable to a TN one when it comes to ultimate image quality and off-axis viewing. Acer has produced a screen to lust for in the XB270HU. With G-Sync, a stable 144Hz refresh rate, QHD resolution and a superb...

Acer XB WQHD G-Sync Monitor Review: All Hail 144hz

 

Gaming monitors require three things: excellent resolution, a fast refresh rate and popping colors. The 27-inch Acer XB at WQHD resolution (2,560 x 1440) on an IPS panel has all of those things, plus one: Nvidia's G-Sync technology. That dear reader,...

Buttery smooth gaming performance (thanks to 144hz and G-Sync); Vibrant and sharp 1440p IPS display; Versatile stand

Logo throws design off a bit; Lots of bezel

If you can look past the logo — and the price, considering it nears 4K monitor price ranges — then you will be welcomed to a world of smooth videos, precise editing, accurate and vibrant color representation and gaming so fluid and lifelike that the...

Acer XB270HU 27-inch 144Hz IPS G-Sync Gaming Monitor Review

 

Acer made one of the best gaming monitors ever with its XB270HU. An IPS-based QHD resolution with NVIDIA G-Sync provides an awesome experience.

Acer Predator XB270HU review

 

Acer's smooth operator is ready for war

Excellent gaming performance ; Superb IPS panel ; G-Sync enables fast refresh rates

Limited connectivity ; Lacks Nvidia's 3D Vision mode ; Uninspired design

The XB270HU offers incredible clarity and great viewing angles thanks to its IPS panel.

Acer Predator XB270HU G-Sync monitor review

 

With the best image quality we've ever seen from a gaming monitor, this Predator is at the top of the food chain

The Acer Predator XB270HU is the most technically impressive monitor we've ever seen. A 144Hz refresh rate IPS-like panel was a dream even a couple of years ago, and now it's here as a very expensive reality. Our only real hangup with this monitor is...

Acer Predator XB270HU G-SYNC Monitor Review

 

After many, many years of only incremental improvements consisting of nothing more than 'the new generation is 1ms faster than the last' PC gaming

The conclusions in our G-SYNC monitor reviews have typically followed a preset path: the offerings offered superlative gaming experiences

well

 

i bought a refurb-and it came in terrible shape-loust packaging from Acer allowed it to get damaged in transit-not to mention it was like they just loosely threw everything in the box-the base looked like someone took sandpaper to it-i sent it back as...

this monitor is just awesome-G-Sync,IPS,144 refresh-the best biggest reliable monitor i could find-will not buy an ASUS anything anymore after a real bad experience w/their MOBOs and their customer service-but as for this only 1 small issue

the stand could fit tighter in the back of the monitor-it doest stay level all the time-which triggers my OCD really bad-hence only 4 eggs
