Expert Rankings

The Acer Predator XB273K has low input lag, 4K resolution, and a 144Hz refresh rate. Critics praised the monitor’s gaming performance and recommended it to gamers. Inconsistent black uniformity and a lackluster HDR panel hold it back. Which is why you would maybe prefer the Acer Predator XB272.
