There isn't really much to say in regards picture quality. Everything looks fantastic, though you need to be within a metre or two of your screen to really appreciate the jump from 1080p to 4K. I like the design of the device too. It has some "gamer" aesthetics going on, but it's not too obnoxious in that regard and the bezel is minimal for such a large screen. The stand is easy to use and sturdy.
There is one flaw with the device that has been noted in many of the other reviews. Once in a while there is some kind of error that causes the picture in a small portion of the screen to be briefly corrupted. In my experience, this is very occasional. Maybe once in five hours of use or so (though I haven't measured this). It also lasts for such a short time that it's just long enough to notice and not enough to really distract. It may be an issue in fast paced competitive games, but without experiencing that for myself I can't be sure. It also seems like some individual devices are affected more than others, based on the reviews here. I have personally found this issue unobtrusive but your mileage may vary.
I would recommend this monitor to people like me, who have a mix of uses for it. For gaming only, particularly fast paced competitive gaming, a 144Hz monitor with lower resolution might be a better option. Equally there are cheaper options, without GSync and with lower response times, for those uninterested in gaming at all. For me, this monitor is a great fit for my current desktop usage.
See the photos attached for evidence of the backlight bleed, which is visible and annoying even in slightly dark scenes. The glitching can be seen in Youtube by searching "XB321HK flicker". On top of that, Acer is completely ignoring this problem in their support forums.
This convinced me that most (if not all) of these panels suffer from these defects. This is not acceptable at this price point. I know this is the only 4K GSync screen out there, but if you're willing to shell out this much cash I highly recommend you wait until the competition comes out with an alternative.
The main thing you need to know is that the screen will, maybe a couple of times an hour, glitch out for a split second on the left side and display random noise. This isn't a "bad batch" issue: they all suffer from it. Search online for "xb321hk artifacts" and you'll find a lot of unhappy customers. I feel that over the 18 months I've owned mine it's gotten worse, too.
If it was an issue on a monitor for half the price of XB321HK I wouldn't have been pleased. On a monitor that costs the best part of a thousand pounds it's outrageous.
