What could be the best-curved monitor or the best widescreen monitor that happens to also be the best hdr monitor for its high-quality gaming performance, the Acer Predator X35 BMIPHZX is a gaming monitor that has an amazing refresh rate, has decent a decent contrast ratio, and is VESA certified. For more high-quality monitors, check out our list of some of the best computer monitors.

Why We Like It – Acer Predator X35

The Acer Predator X35 uses quantum dot technology to display accurate colors and high-quality images through the screen and has NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate to provide a speed boost to avoid slow down and screen tearing. It also has a curved screen to enhance those features by providing decent viewing angles.

Pros
  • Free shipping
  • Has speakers
  • Has G-Sync Ultimate
Cons
  • Expensive

Performance

Just like the Acer Predator XB272, the Acer X35 has Nvidia g sync ultimate technology as the specification booster of choice, unlike the Samsung CHG90 49-Inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor that has the AMD FreeSync 2. With a response time of 2 ms and a refresh rate of 200 Hz, there’s no risk of screen tearing. It also utilizes quantum dot technology to display colors on the screen display using the DCI-P3 color gamut standard. The contrast ratio of 2500:1, which is much stronger than the Acer ProDesigner PE320QK.

Viewing Angle

The Acer has a light sense feature that adjusts the brightness of the screen by sensing the amount of light in the room. This feature makes the screen brighter when the room has more light, and makes it darker when the room has less light. It’s automatic, so there’s no need for the user’s intervention. Also, since the screen is curved, there’s less of a chance for glare to interfere with the user’s task(s).

Durability

Since the monitor weighs 24 Lbs. and has a very wide screen, a stand and base that can withstand both of those factors is a high priority. One review, in particular, says that it succeeded in doing that, praising the monitor’s design by addressing the sturdiness of the stand and how it’s able to hold the weight and width of the screen. The stand has a unique design that stands out, but it still does deliver functionality in addition to weight distribution.

Ports/Expandability

This assortment of ports consists of a DisplayPort, an HDMI port, USB 3.0 ports, and audio-out ports. It doesn’t have as many different types of ports as monitors such as the Philips Brilliance 499P9H, which includes USB 2.0 ports and an Ethernet port. However, the available ports do provide enough versatility to connect to more modern devices. Keep in mind that to get the best picture quality from this monitor, the user would have to use the DisplayPort, rather than HDMI.

Value

It’s much more expensive than leading 27-inch monitors like the Samsung C27HG70 despite having a few similarities. Both have VA panels, but the Acer’s screen is significantly bigger, which has a bigger contribution to the overall price in comparison. Both also have quantum dot technology and the same resolution. However, there’s the addition of having the G-Sync Ultimate in the Acer, which provides a higher refresh rate than Samsung’s Freesync. The Acer also has speakers and a light sensor, while the Samsung monitor doesn’t.

Acer Predator X35 Wrap Up

Customer reviews have mostly praised this monitor, with one reviewer saying that it’s almost perfect, and that the only problem is the sound of the fan. Another reviewer admitted how amazed they were that the monitor could display SDR content as well as it does. Keep in mind that there’s a potential risk of getting dark smears.
