Overview

The Acer XFA240 is the brand’s mid-tier 24-Inch 1920 x 1080p HD Gaming monitor released in 2020.

It has incredible gaming features including a 144Hz refresh rate along with G-Sync and Adaptive-Sync capabilities.

With a solid build quality and an adjustable stand that can be tilted 90 degrees for a vertical screen, the XFA240 also features an anti-glare TN panel that is also flicker-free, reducing overall eye strain.
