Acer Predator XB3 review


The $1,300 Predator XB3 isn't for the faint of heart. But if you have a system that can push over 100 frames per second at 4K screen resolution, this monster of a monitor might be the perfect match for your overpowered gaming rig. More than that, it's...

Lightweight, sturdy build ; G-Sync, HDR support ; Extremely bright ; High refresh rate and screen resolution ; Vibrant, accurate colors

Confusing menu and button setup ; Lots of plastic, thick bezels ; Chintzy speakers

Should you buy a 4K 144Hz monitor? Well, choosing a 1440p monitor is the more practical option. You’ll get better framerates, and it’ll cost you less. But if you need the ultimate gaming display to match your overpowered rig, the XB3 is as good as it...

Acer Predator XB3 (XB273K)


The Acer Predator XB3 is a nearly perfect compromise between the lowest and highest ends of the 4K 144Hz monitor market.

Great color reproduction. Low input lag. Good price for the features you get. Gaming-friendly design.

Limited number of ports. Black levels could be better. Moderate light bleed.

Bottom Line: The Acer Predator XB3 is a nearly perfect compromise between the lowest and highest ends of the 4K 144Hz monitor market.

Acer Predator XB3 (XB273UGS) review – a true gaming beast with G-Sync and HDR400 support


Today we have a very special product on our test bench. It is a high-refresh-rate monitor with a 27-inch diagonal and 1440p resolution. This is basically the sweet spot for gaming in 2020. Now, the…

Falls in the sweet spot for gaming monitors (in terms of size and resolution);Covers the entire sRGB color gamut and most of the DCI-P3 gamut;Overclockable to 165Hz and fast in terms of response time;Adjustable height, tilt, swivel, and pivot;Our...

Requiers a DisplayPort connection in order for G-Sync to work and to get the 165Hz refresh rate (HDMI “only” goes to 144Hz);Insufficient uniformity of the colors to the left and right side

Acer Predator XB273K gaming monitor review


A premium gaming monitor at a premium price.

Excellent picture detail ; Strong all-round gaming specs ; Good menu options

High price tag ; Ordinary design ; Minimum-spec HDR

One of the best monitors that we’ve seen, despite the high pricetag. Clarity, brightness, and refresh rate all combine to make this a genuine market-leader.

Acer Predator XB273K 4K 144Hz Monitor Review: The Next Best Thing


In the fall, we reviewed the Acer Predator X27 and Asus ROG Swift PG27U HDR gaming monitors. Both panels deliver UHD / 4K resolutions with 144Hz refresh rates, pack in HDR10 and extended color gamuts and have full array backlights capable of delivering...

Superb gaming performance ; Out-of-box color accuracy ; 144Hz ; G-Sync ; HDR ; DCI-P3 color ; DisplayHDR 400 certified


By eschewing the full-array backlight and 1,000 nits peak brightness, the Acer Predator XB273K will save buyers around $500 while still delivering stunning gaming performance and professional-level color accuracy. It’s one of the best monitors we’ve...
