Acer Predator XB271HU


The Acer Predator XB271HU is one of a new breed of gaming monitors that not only features the high refresh rate you expect of a gaming display but has the great image quality you'd associate with an IPS panel too.

Acer Predator XB271HU


The 27-inch Acer Predator XB271HU offers very good gaming performance, a fully adjustable stand, and lots of style.

Nvidia G-Sync anti-tearing technology. Very good gaming and gray-scale performance. Fast refresh rate. Stylish design.

Expensive. Middling color accuracy. Weak speakers. Only two video inputs.

Conclusion With the Acer Predator XB271HU, you get excellent gaming performance, thanks to a 144Hz refresh rate and Nvidia's G-Sync technology. It offers all of the cool gamer-friendly features that you get with other Predator models, including Aim...

Review: Acer Predator XB1 XB271HU


Standard resolution but with 165Hz G-Synced smoothness...

Acer Predator XB271HU


Excellent flawless product, no dead pixels, no light bleed, I was skeptical about ordering either this or the asus version, but as everyone knows asus's customers services are nothing to write home about, so I went with the acer and it was the best...

Display buttons are a bit more trickier than I'd of like and take some getting used to - only downside but easy to overcome

Gorgeous image. Detailed colours, pin sharp image thanks to 2k resolution, and a responsive panel. Nvidia Gsync and ULMB are great features to have.

Price is quite steep. Gamerbro aesthetic.

Acer Predator XB271HU


Great image, lovely colours.

The branding is pretty bad - all sharp edges, superbro 'true gamer' silliness. The logo and even the name want to sound COOL and X-TREME but may put some people off a fantastic monitor.
