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...

Our judgement? If you’re a serious gamer, there’s absolutely no doubt. It’s worth it.

Beautiful looking monitor with gorgeous red feet on the stand. The resolution is stunning and works well with my nvidia 1060 graphics card.

Acer Predator XB271HU

 

Absolutely stunning picture quality 144hz smooths out gameplay Ultra-thin side/top bezel Customisable height/tilt/swivel stand Looks like a premium product as part of a gaming setup

A little pricey Clunky OSD

Acer Predator XB271HU

 

- Best monitor I have ever owned. - The whites are white, not yellow, not some off beige, actually white. - Blacks are excellent. - Colour reproduction is great. - Gsync is great, since owning this I haven't noticed a single tear since. - Refresh rate...

- Very Expensive

Fantastic screen, amazing picture quality. GSync is a game changer.

It's expensive but you get what you pay for, this is a top end monitor and it doesn't disappoint.

WOW!

 

I recommend this only to ppl that want the absolute best!! if you have an average looking girl and drive a Chevy Impala, this panel is not for you.

Very expensive but worth every penny. If you spend so much for high end components for your build why cheap out on a monitor? 0 dead pixels no noticeable light bleed very heavy solid build!!

not a con of the monitor, but my gtx 970 struggles on some games with high settings should not be a problem when i get my gtx 1080 in a few days :D

Awesome!

 

Looks good, fast Gsync, AWESOMEE

Had to OC to avoid Gsync screen offset.. if it happens to you alt tabbing/exiting gsync you'll know. Easy fix though. minor bleed, they crank brightness up to make it seem nonexistent out of the box

Impressed - Beautiful monitor and no broken pixels or blb!!

 

I wanted a 1440 monitor and was debating between this acer predator xb271hu or an asus rog swift pg278. I chose this over the rog swift for two reasons - IPS and Quality Control. I felt like I made the right decision since my predator monitor came in...

-first and foremost, NO BLACK LIGHT BLEED OR BROKEN PIXELS!!! -beautiful screen and externals -the stand is very sturdy -adjustment is extremely flexible and pretty neat tbh (it has this fit spring that counters the weight of the monitor perfectly so...

-the base shape - the angles of it are awkward for my desk size, i'd prefer smaller although it keeps it in place -the On-light button is bright and a minor distraction not very many cons imo
