The Acer Predator XB272’s 240Hz refresh rate, good color accuracy, and G-Sync support impressed reviewers. This is the monitor to buy if you want the smoothest gaming experience. The monitor’s low resolution, lack of ports, and poor contrast ratio hold it back.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Acer Predator XB272 is the brand’s mid-level model released in 2017. It promises to deliver a better gaming experience than other mid-level models thanks to its excellent refresh rate. It is more portable than its competitor, the LG UltraGear 27GN750-B because it weighs less. It’s an ideal monitor for those needing a smooth experience for competitive gaming.

In addition, the Acer Predator XB272 has good SDR peak brightness, an accurate color gamut, and lightning-fast response time. Keep reading our BenQ EX2780Q review, and don’t forget to check out the highest rated computer monitors available now.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Acer Predator XB272 has a lot to offer gamers: a 240Hz refresh rate, good color accuracy, and G-Sync support. But it’s not perfect – the resolution is low, there are limited ports, and the contrast ratio isn’t great. If you’re looking for the smoothest gaming experience, this could be the monitor for you.
