Acer Predator XB271HK Review – Worth Every Cent



The price tag for the Acer Predator XB271HK ¬†might throw off some people, but make no mistake, this gaming monitor is definitely worth every penny that you spend on it. It has a 3,840 x 2,160 27-inch IPS panel that is able to deliver 4K UHD goodness with ultra-smooth gaming due to it having Nvidia’s G-Synch anti-tearing and anti-ghosting technology. Furthermore, the design for this particular monitor undeniably screams gaming, but you’re not going to complain once it joins the ranks of your other gaming devices.

The Acer Predator XB271HK Will Definitely Appeal to Many Gamers

When it comes to design, the Acer Predator XB271HK is one sharp-looking monitor, and that’s speaking figuratively and literally. The 27-inch IPS panel dons a matte coating, and the screen is surrounded by a black, zero-bezel cabinet. The only thing that breaks its design when looking around the panel is the Predator logo that has been etched into the bottom trim.

The cabinet is then being held up by a V-shaped base that shares the same red and black accents as that of the monitor itself. Speaking of the stand, it has a mounting arm and hinge that allows for 5.9-inches of height, 40-degrees of tilt, and 30-degrees of swivel. Furthermore, you can even pivot the entire cabinet should you want to display images in Portrait Mode. Doing this, or switching back to Landscape Mode, is quite easy to do because of a quick-release button.

In terms of connections, perhaps this is where the XB271HK doesn’t shine as much as its competitors, because you only get two video ports, them being an HDMI input and a full-size DisplayPort input. But you do get one USB 3.0 port for upstream, two USB 3.0 ports for downstream, and a headphone jack. Speaking of which, the monitor does have its own set of speakers, but the sound quality leaves much to be desired.

But when it comes to gaming, boy does the Acer Predator XB271HK perform. In fact, saying that it is an impressive performer is a dire understatement. It boasts a 4-millisecond pixel respond that works well with the blur-free motion brought about by the Nvidia G-Sync technology which provides perhaps one of the smoothest gaming experiences you can possibly imagine. In terms of color accuracy, it is also quite good in this department, which means it can even be used for a bit of photo and image editing and creation. Overall, this might put a huge dent in your spending allowance, but you won’t complain much once you’re able to take a gander at its performance, features, and style.
