Acer XB271HU and XB271HUT 165Hz WQHD AHVA models

Some users may be a little confused as to why we are bringing ‘news’ of the Acer XB271HU several months after its release. As it happens, we never published a news piece on this as we were expecting to have reviewed it by now. Unfortunately, a review sample of this never materialised despite repeated requests to Acer, so here we are.

Acer XR341CK and X34 75Hz and 100Hz curved IPS models

We’ve explored how the 3440 x 1440 resolution on a 34” ‘UltraWide’ model can provide an incredibly engrossing gaming experience. And indeed how adding a subtle curve can help enhance the experience without making the experience seem completely alien. The Acer XR341CK and X34 take things one step further. They combine the same or a very similar curved slim-bezel 34” AH-IPS panel to that seen on the likes of the Dell U3415W and LG 34UC97 and ramp the refresh rate up to 75Hz and 100Hz, respectively.

Acer Z35 with curved 200Hz G-SYNC VA panel

One particular monitor that has drummed up a lot of interest and sparked a bit of debate is the BenQ XR3501. Some people are put off by the pixel density offered by the 2560 x 1080 resolution spread over a 35” area, whilst others see real potential in its generously curved 144Hz VA panel. The Acer Z35 represents an interesting alternative.

Acer XR342CK highly curved 3440 x 1440 FreeSync monitor

The Acer XR341CK was the first monitor to combine a 34” 3440 x 1440 panel with support for AMD’s FreeSync variable refresh rate technology. Its gentle curve is also enough to give a little subtle extra depth to the gaming and movie-watching experience whilst bringing the edges of the screen a bit closer to the eyes.

Acer XF270HU 144Hz WQHD FreeSync monitor

The Acer XB270HU is an interesting addition to the gaming monitor market, combining a 144Hz AHVA (IPS-type) panel with a 2560 x 2440 (WQHD) resolution and G-SYNC variable refresh rate technology. G-SYNC is certainly a nice addition found on a rising number of gaming monitors as it allows the monitor to dynamically alter its refresh rate to coincide, where possible, with the frame rate of the content.

Acer XB321HK – ‘4K’ UHD model with G-SYNC

Having reviewed the BenQ BL3201PT/PH and Samsung U32E850R with AMD FreeSync support, it’s safe to say that we find the ~32” screen size to be something of a sweet spot for the UHD resolution. And also that variable refresh rate technologies can add something very nice indeed to the gaming experience on such models. For Nvidia users hoping to see this sort of monitor with their beloved G-SYNC technology, the wait may well be over.
