Awandragon – Acer XG270HU is one such display that uses AMD’s FreeSync anti-tearing technology, a fast 1ms pixel response, and a 144Hz refresh rate to provide smooth, artifact-free gaming performance. Its 27-inch Twisted Nematic (TN) panel delivers a sharp 2,560-by-1,440 (WQHD) picture.
it offers advanced color settings, but its color accuracy could be better, and its grayscale and viewing-angle performance are middling. It’s also missing a few key features, such as USB ports, dual HDMI ports, and a fully adjustable stand, that you get with more expensive models, like our Editors’ Choice for large-screen gaming monitors
Acer Xg270hu Review
Monitor XG270HU shines when it comes to gaming performance, thanks to its speedy pixel response and refresh rate. There was no noticeable blurring or ghosting on my Crysis 3 (PC) and Grand Theft Auto V (Sony PlayStation 4$318.00 at Amazon) tests, and fast action was fluid.
Although there was no discernable screen tearing with FreeSync disabled, enabling FreeSync produced a noticeably smoother picture. I saw this with the AOC U2879VF$328.12 at Amazon and the Samsung LC27F591FDN$349.99 at Best Buy monitors as well.
The Acer XG270HU is a fine choice if you’re a gamer who wants a 27-inch gaming monitor that provides smooth action and looks good doing it. It uses a 144Hz refresh rate and a 1ms pixel response to keep motion blur and ghosting at bay, and it supports AMD’s FreeSync technology, which eliminates screen tearing and provides a silky smooth picture. That said, the TN panel’s color accuracy was a bit skewed in testing, and its grayscale and viewing-angle performance were less than stellar. If your budget allows, consider our Editors’ Choice for big-screen gaming monitors, the LG 27UD88-W.
Monitor Acer Xg270hu Conclusion
Granted, it costs about $200 more than the XG270HU, but its In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel offers better grayscale performance and wider viewing angles, and it is equipped with USB ports (including a USB-C port), multiple video HDMI inputs, and a fully adjustable stand. Rating 8/10
