The Acer Predator X27 has been hailed as a godsend to gamers thanks to its support for a 4K resolution at a refresh rate that\u2019s higher than 60Hz, and a DisplayHDR 1000 certification. In fact, when overclocked, the Acer Predator X27 achieves a 144Hz refresh rate, and this together with it\u2019s support for HDR content make it one, if not the best monitor for video editing as well as super competitive gaming. The Predator X27 also comes with Quantum Dot Technology where nanoparticles emit color based on their size to give enhanced color accuracy, and with both an Adobe RGB and a sRGB color gamut for professionals in digital photography.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Acer Predator X27\r\nFor serious (and seriously loaded) gamers only, the Acer X27 Predator is a premium range gaming monitor that comes fully fitted with features and high end specs such as a 144Hz high refresh rate to keep everything silky smooth during gameplay, a 4ms response time for the best gaming fluidity, and Nvidia G-Sync Adaptive Technology for eliminating screen tearing down to the last bit. Excited? This is just a tease of what the Predator X27 has to offer. Take a seat and get ready for this Acer Predator X27 Review.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Acer Predator has a peak brightness of 1000 nits, and this makes for an immersive viewing experience especially in HDR Mode. It\u2019s 1000:1 contrast ratio is excellent for an IPS panel, and is the reason it\u2019s black and white colors appear vivid & well balanced. Switch local dimming on and the ratio shoots up to 52,000:1. With this setting, you get a very low black level to make darker scenes more prominent. Also, to squeeze the best out of the X27 in terms of it\u2019s 10-bit color, you\u2019ll have to run it at about 98Hz. This is advisable since it helps avoid any chroma subsampling. The Acer Predator X27 clocks in at about 11.5ms in input lag (good enough to guarantee swift action and control responsiveness) and is still more of a professional\u2019s color monitor than the ViewSonic VP2468 ColorPro.\r\nDesign\r\nFrom the very onset, the Acer predator X27 comes off as a gaming-focussed display with its V shaped stand and blinders to help reduce glare. Better-looking than the AOC U3277PWQU, the gaming monitor has a very thick side profile, though this doesn\u2019t prevent it from being VESA mounted. The display can\u2019t be rotated to a portrait setting, but swiveling, tilting and height adjustment is possible to a limited degree. Connectivity-wise, the monitor has 1 DisplayPort, 1 HDMI port, and 2 USB 3.0 ports. The Acer Predator X27 also spots dual 4 Watt speakers, but you most likely won\u2019t be using these at the expense of your headphones\r\nValue\r\nThe Acer Predator X27 G-Sync HDR monitor plays in the same league as the Dell UP3216Q in terms of price, so it\u2019s definitely not a budget buy. It\u2019s much better than most gaming monitors in terms of image quality thanks to HDR support, Quantum Dot tech and a wide color gamut. It's among the monitors with the highest refresh rates and also comes with G-Sync support. At a 4K resolution, the predator X27 is a force to be reckoned with, and it commands a price that reflects the same.\r\nAcer Predator X27 Wrap Up\r\nThe Acer X27 Predator is more than a gamer\u2019s dream. It has all the things that a competitive player could wish for, to the extent that it\u2019s only serious con was it\u2019s high price. The 27-inch screen size is only a dealbreaker to anyone who prefers a larger display area. Other than that, it\u2019s only money that stands between this gaming monitor and an aggressive gamer. Worth saving up for? We think so, but for those that can afford it out of pocket, only a few things will match the exhilarating gaming experience you\u2019re set to enjoy.
