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

Acer Predator XB271HU

 

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.
