Product Snapshot

Overview

The Acer XB323UGP is a high-end gaming monitor released in late 2020 as part of Acer’s line of monitors designed for competitive gameplay. It promises to eliminate screen tearing through its super high 170Hz refresh rate while reducing motion blur thanks to a swift 0.5ms response time. The display features a large 32-inch screen to provide a wide field of view and boasts HDR support for vivid imagery. Its high 2560 x 1440p resolution allows for crystal clear text, and with up to 100% coverage of the Adobe RGB color gamut, the display is an excellent option for color-critical work. Its stand has better ergonomics than that of the Samsung Odyssey G7, making it a lot easier to adjust according to personal preference. Get to the end of this Acer XB323UGP review to find out if it has got what it takes to rank among the best rated computer monitors available in the market.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Acer XB323UGP is a great gaming monitor for avid gamers. Its 32-inch display has a 170 Hz refresh rate to reduce screen tearing and a 4ms input lag for quick command execution. However, it doesn’t support FreeSync compatibility. The display has decent viewing angles and good black levels for visibility in dark scenes. The downside is its low 91 PPI pixel density and IPS glow.
