The immersive experience provided by ~32″ screens can be enticing, with the QHD resolution providing a good balance in terms of detail, ‘desktop real estate’ and not being too graphically demanding. The Acer XV320QU LM (XV320QU Lmbmiiphx) provides this, along with the typical styling of the Nitro series to which it belongs. This includes a weighted round stand base, cylindrical matte black coated metal neck and matte black plastic bottom bezel. The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen and thin hard plastic outer part. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by buttons running down the rear of the monitor, at the right side as viewed from the front.

A 31.5″ 2560 x 1440 (QHD or 1440p) IPS-type panel is used. There’s support for a 165Hz refresh rate alongside Adaptive-Sync, including AMD FreeSync Premium with 48 – 165Hz VRR range plus LFC. A matte anti-glare screen surface is adopted, whilst a 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles and 8-bit colour are specified. A flicker-free WLED backlight delivers a 250 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and 90% DCI-P3 colour gamut. The screen is Eyesafe certified by TÜV Rheinland, with the blue peak shifted to less energetic wavelengths and the amplitude of the peak reduced to potentially enhance viewing comfort. Basic HDR10 support is offered, allowing 10-bit colour processing to be used with the extended colour gamut put to good use. But not requiring a particularly wide gamut by HDR standards, high brightness or local dimming. A grey to grey response time of “up to 0.5ms” is specified, which as usual should be taken with a large pinch of salt. The stand provides tilt, swivel and height (120mm or 4.72 inches) adjustment and attaches via 100 x 100mm VESA. It can be removed and an alternative VESA compatible stand or mount used. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, DP 1.2a+ (HDR feature set) and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 2 x 3W speakers are included for basic sound reproduction.
