Lets start with the refresh rate. It is 144hz, if you run it with 8-bit colors that look terrible, if you switch to 10-bit you have to run it at 120hz.
Lets talk about that 1ms response time. Nope, that only happens with extreme over-drive that distorts the picture to the point that the monitor becomes unusable. Expect about 5ms of response time with this monitor.
Next HDR is completely useless, either windows HDR or the monitor HDR, just pretend this feature doesn't exist as windows HDR cause the colors to be washed out, and the monitor's HDR will just tweak some settings but will not display better dynamic range. Keep in mind that IPS displays have atrocious contrast, and this is a very dim display at only 350 nits.
The monitor looked so bad out of the box that I seriously considered returning it, but after a bit of tweaking and switching it to 10-bit colors its a lot better. The image quality if a far cry from my old 27" dell 4k, but its passable with decent viewing angles, and the faster refresh rate is nice for gaming.
Overall this is a fine monitor, just don't think you'll get all the advertised features together.
So first off I would order an HBR2 or 3 rated Display Port cable to go with it. Its much better than the HDMI cabled included and DP can take better advantage of 10bit/1440p144hz (or 10bit-4k 4.4.4)(not that this monitor supports either, I'll get to that in a moment) The stand is also pretty okay, it seems well made and doesn't seem to flimsy compared to some other I have seen. I feel its likely the weight of this monitor that can make the 3 point stand design seem like a bad choice. Given the tips of the stand are much thinner and can bare the most stress if the monitor has any lateral force applied to it. Combined with the monitor being a bit on the heavy side compared to similar in its same but more expensive class. I do love the looks/finish of the monitor though. Great aesthetics all around.
The UI is pretty okay, better than some others that are even more expensive than this one, It give you the option to save 3 presets of your own. Has a good range of control, only drawback I felt is there is no sharpness adjustment at all. It only includes a "Super Sharpness" on/off option. Which can be hit or miss. Looks great on with basic web browsing. Gaming, I would keep it off.
The factory calibration was near perfect. I have tried adjusting it every which way, tried a few profiles others have used. It honestly looks best for me right out of the box. Note that the 8bit+2 FRC is only possible when in 120Hz. For me that isnt a huge issue. I didnt expect to being going over 120hz at all because I like to keep my graphic settings as high as I can. And prefer that over 24 extra hz. But thats just me.
I went through the whole list of tests for monitors... All of them actually performed way above what I expected. Except 2. The pixel walk test. Failed all of them. And I can really notice pixel walk if I try. But given the last monitor I had for 6+ years had it bad. It doesn't bother me a bit. It's something you will likely never know was there. The second was ghosting. It was VERY VERY SMALL. It was mostly noticeable in 10 bit HDR. With 8 Bit/HDR off/All stock. Honestly it was so minimal like I said earlier. If I didnt read about it and test for it. Likely would never know what it is. The newer Innolux panels have fixed a lot of ghosting and flickering issues. The AOU panels are said to be the bad ones.
(CHECK YOUR MONITORS MANUF. DATE BY HOLDING THE BUTTON ABOVE THE JOYSTICK THEN PRESS POWER BUTTON. A SMALL RED "F" WILL APPEAR IN THE UI MENU AT THE TOP. ANY DATE AFTER NOV/2018/SHOULD BE AN INNO. PANEL. YOU SHOULD BE FINE.) With IPS you are going to get ghosting no matter what. Just adjust your settings to balance picture quality,refresh, with limiting ghosting.
No dead or stuck pixels. I have had zero flickering at all so far. Back Light Bleed is also pretty damn good. Its just a tiny tiny part of the bottom left corner of the screen In the BLB test. (SMALL UPDATE: Seems it has near zero Bleed, what I was seeing was IPS glow at certain angles. Like a bit of ghosting dude to the lower pixel response times. You can expect a small bit of IPS glow.. As long as neither are excessive and too noticeable under normal use. Less likely to have it with the more expensive IPS monitors though
The picture/color quality is pretty damn good. The colors are very rich, the brightness is also really bright. I actually prefer to tune mine down to 75 from 80 stock. As some websites with white layouts may be a bit too bright. Contrast is pretty great also, didnt need to adjust at all. Colors are best at standard/HDR on/10 bit for basic use. After a few hours in elite dangerous/insurgency sandstorm/CSGO/BFV I can tell that set up does have a small ghosting affect on sharp textures/text in game. But it was very minimal and only in certain situations. 144hz/Standard/8 bit/ HDR off/Super Sharpness OFF/ ACM off seemed to give the best performance in that regard. picture quality was honestly the same in my opinion. It "almost" eliminated ghosting or kept it to a minimum. Viewing angle is also pretty okay. UP/DOWN I would say that 178 degree claim is accurate. LEFT/RIGHT its more like 45 degrees then you start getting affected by it.
Note that this monitor only displays 10bit Color Depth at 120Hz. For some that may be a problem. But dont let it be a deal breaker. For $350 this monitor was honestly a lot better than expected. Some comments/reviews may scare you. But Acer did iron out a lot of kinks last year and a lot of those reviews are from this monitors initial release or shortly after. It DID have a lot of issues with flickering/ghosting/etc. The color accuracy is pretty dang good for the most part, however if you do any work that requires absolute color accuracy. This isnt a true 10bit monitor, It fakes it using an 8 Bit+2 FRC. Meaning it pretty much simulates it by using the high refresh rate to flash between the 2 seperate colors to simulate another color. For example if you need a green thats 7.5, it will flash a lighter green pixel at 7, then a darker green pixel at 8. For an average of 7.5. (in a nutshell) Im not well versed in color accuracy for those that edit video/photos but this monitor may not be the best for you.
But as of right now for the price and only if you can find no other better IPS monitor in the same price range, this is a pretty solid bet. I love it, the colors just pop and is just night and day compared to my Samsung TN monitor. I'll admit I was VERY nervous at the time of purchase. Thats why I felt a bit compelled to to give a full review, and why It ended up being the longest review I have every written. This is why, at the moment this ips monitor is easily in the top 5 for $350 1440P IPS monitors. The other <$350(sometimes) options being the Pixio,BENQ,Viewsonic,Viotek, and maybe Nixeus. All have their pro/cons. I wouldnt get the AOC one its VERY dark. And if your wondering the difference between the Nitro VG271U and the Nitro XV272U is just the stand, every single exact thing. The entire monitor, is the exact same. If the VG is cheaper grab it. Its VESA compitable and use the money you saved to pick your own wall mount/stand. The XV just has an adjustable stand. And different letters on the box. That's it.
Anyway, if your thinking about it. Its a safe bet, and really does have great color/gaming performance. Just make sure you look up the tech specs for any monitor your looking at so you don't get hit with surprises. For example this product page doesn't show that it can only support 8+2 color depth @ 120Hz. I almost feel that deserves a solid star being taken off the review.
- No dead pixels on arrival (this varies from customer to customer)
-Freesync works when Overdrive is on normal, not on exteme
- they have an analog stick that adjust your monitor settings
-IPS at 144hz 1080p at 24in is delightful (why this monitor is getting most of the points)
-Better than TN and VA panels (colors don't look as vibrant compared to IPS)
-HDMI 2.0 is okayish
-colors out the box is acceptable
-The monitor build is cheap and a bit flimsy, but this is where acer cut corners so it is more a budget friendly build at 144hz
- Overdrive at Extreme does NOT work when Freesync is enabled (my experience, maybe different for you)
- NO SWIVEL or HEIGHT ADJUSTMENTS ON STAND
- its a 6 bit + FRC panel with only 250 cd/m2 brightness (but I don't notice significant color depletion)
- Gamer aesthetic is a tad much, personal preference though.
-Does not come with DisplayPort cable
-IPS bleeding (but that is just predisposition of IPS panels, not really a con if you know what IPS issues are)
-When VRB is enabled at normal or at extreme the brightness substantially decreases.
The real rating is a 3.5 if I had the option
Even with multiple shortcomings (more cons than pros) I feel that acer did a decent job with this budget friendly monitor because the main selling point of this monitor (IPS 24in 144hz) does its job well enough to overlook the issues this monitor has , if color accuracy is what you want at 24in 144hz IPS monitor, then you have to wait.
Top reviews from other countries
- good colors for the price
- 144hz works
- good overall look
- Stand doesnt reposition other than slightly angled up or down
- Blacks have a ton of leaks from all 4 corners. My cheap monitor is way better than it in this reguard.
- design flaw in the monitor itself. I returned the monitor once, because there was a cluster of pixels that dont turn off in its centre (black) colors its 100%. I got the new monitor. The exact same thing. A cluster of pixels in the centre of the screen that dont turn off. Its hardly noticeable after a while, but an obvious design flaw.
- i have no idea why they bother to put speakers in it. But it has about the volume of maybe 10% on my headset.
Overall, for the price its the best one there is. It comes at the cost of it being cheaply made.
Here you have the optimal settings if u want:
Black boost: 5 (default)
Color: Red gain- 47, green gain- 48, blue gain-46
Colour bias: Red-50, green- 50, blue-48
All other settings: default
Yo lo utilizo para mi computadora gamer, pero tambén lo tengo conectado a mi Nintendo Switch. Tiene altavoces, y se escuchan muy bien. Tiene diversos modos de imagen, yo lo utilizo en el modo eye care porque paso largas jornadas en la computadora y nunca he resentido dichas horas. Es la mejor opción, creeme.
So far no issues and delivers as it promises. But the picture quality is good and not excellent as some of the gamers might expect.
The inbuilt speakers are as good a not there but the headphone jacks is a good addition to use an external speaker.
Overall a good product for regular office work..
So, once again. This is not Amazon. This is all Acer. I have two expensive bricks
