It’s easy to get swept away in a world of high refresh rates, high resolutions and HDR Some users are after something rather more basic. The Acer QG271 (QG271 bii) of the Nitro QG1 series delivers this, with a certain simplicity that some will appreciate. The design if fairly no-frills, although that’s not to say unattractive. Dark matte black plastics are used throughout, including for the bottom bezel where a textured finish is included. The stand base has a Y-shaped design. The top and side bezels have slender dual-stage design, or ‘ZeroFrame’ as Acer refers to it. This includes a slim panel border that’s flush with the rest of the screen, plus a slim hard plastic outer component. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by pressable buttons and a joystick at the rear of the monitor, running down the right side as viewed from the front.
A 27″ 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) VA (Vertical Alignment) panel is employed with 75Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-Sync (for AMD FreeSync) is supported, with a 48 – 75Hz variable refresh rate range. This is coupled with a 3000:1 static contrast ratio and 178° specified horizontal and vertical viewing angles. A light matte anti-glare screen surface is included. The monitor supports 8-bit colour and has a flicker-free WLED backlight, offering a 300 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and ~sRGB colour space coverage. ‘BlueLightShield’ Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are included for enhanced viewing comfort. A 1ms MPRT response time is specified using the included VRB (Visual Response Boost) strobe backlight mode. As usual, approach such figures with caution. The included stand offers tilt as the only ergonomic flexibility, although 100 x 100mm VESA holes are included. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), 2 HDMI 1.4 ports and VGA.
