- 165Hz refresh rate
- IPS tech
Acer has made some massive inroads into the gaming monitor market, and with products like the XB271HU it's not hard to see why. With a massive 165Hz refresh rate, a glorious IPS screen and Nvidia G-Sync tech for tear-free gaming, this is gaming nirvana.
Contrast (1,238:1) and colour performance (96.9% sRGB) are both fantastic, and this screen is ridiculously bright, too, at 281nits at 80% brightness. It looks great, too, with an aggressive stand and a super thin bezel around the top, left and right sides.
The only drawbacks of the Predator XB271HU is its reliance on Nvidia graphics kit for G-Sync, and it's an absolute pig to assemble. Once assembled, you'll have no issues with this ridiculous gaming screen.
