Dell Alienware AW5520QF (2019) vs Acer XB series 4K monitors (2014)
The Dell Alienware AW5520QF 55" hasn't managed to earn a top spot in any roundups from sources that conduct trustworthy hands-on testing. Nevertheless, reviewers from sites, such as Tom's Hardware, TrustedReviews, and PCmag all gave it a spot on their list.
As for the Acer XB280HK - PCmag, a source that conducts reliable hands-on testing, has featured it in its Acer XB280HK Review roundup. However, it didn't make it to any of the top spots.
We conducted an analysis of all of the review data that we could find on these two products. First, we focused on sources that tested and rated both of them, like PCmag, and learned that they all showed a preference for the Acer XB280HK.
Then we took a look at the highest review scores that these two Monitors received. We found that the Dell Alienware AW5520QF 55" managed to earn a rating of 8 from Tom's Hardware, whereas the Acer XB280HK got its highest, 9, score from reviewers at Digitaltrends.
Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Monitors on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Monitors being 7.3 out of 10, whereas the Dell Alienware AW5520QF 55" and Acer XB280HK managed averages of 7.7 and 8.5 points, respectively.
Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Dell Alienware AW5520QF 55" vs. Acer XB280HK comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
