The Acer XB271H is a well-rounded 27-inch FHD gaming monitor. It supports G-Sync and features a highly responsive, overclockable TN panel.
Pro Handles motion very well
The Acer Predator XB271H makes the motion appear clear and free of artificial motion blur and ghosting effects, as the monitor combines fast full pixel response time with Acer's ULMB feature and the panel's high refresh rate.
Motion blur is eliminated as each panel's pixel can change its color fast enough to prevent the fast-moving objects from leaving traces. It is possible because of the monitor's full pixel response time of 1 ms.
Ghosting is reduced to a minimum by the aid of Acer's ULMB feature, which strobes the monitor's backlights and makes it behave like CRT monitors.
Finally, as the monitor's high native refresh rate ensures smooth and fluid motion by updating the monitor's image 144 times a second.
Pro Adequate picture quality
Even though the monitor's picture quality doesn't excel in any aspect, it still performs similarly to the majority of gaming monitors in this price range.
The monitor displays average-looking images with mediocre dark scenes and reasonably luminous colors. The dark scenes look average as the monitor's native contrast ratio of 1000:1 is not high enough to make its blacks appear natural. However, the colors look vivid thanks to the monitor's peak brightness of 300 nits.
