Holy smokes, 144hz is buttery smooth (and I could even overlock it to 165hz)
Got a refurbished model for $799.99 about 5 months after it was originally released, and it just kicks ***. This thing has nothing wrong with it, hardly notice the back-light bleed (me personally). Easy to set up and compatible with all the programs I've used with it. The stand does shake a bit if your table is not too sturdy due to the heavy weight of the 27" love machine. The sleek look and petite outside bezel really make this thing look unreal, would recommend if you got the cashhhhhhhhhh
Buttery smooth, incredible monitor. GSYNC makes everything look so good.
Sleek and nice, with great functionality. Acer sometimes has QC issues, and I had to send mine out for repairs. However, once you get the monitor set up, the status LED on auto-off, and overclocked to 165 hz (this, as well as G-sync, are actually done in Windows),it is a great monitor.
Initially, I was underwhelmed by this monitor. Takes some times to get the right settings. But it is AMAZING after you get it dialed in. Need some GPU power to utilize the 165Hz. My gtx 1080 ftw and this monitor are best friends.
This was a tough decision to make, but I don't need the monitor to watch any TV on, I already got a un65js9000 for that. I needed something strictly for gaming, and refresh rate, G-Sync and IPS were all really important to me. Not sure if i can really tell the difference between the quality of this monitor vs watching 4k movies on my TV.. I'm very happy with my decision.
This monitor has so many features that appeal to a gamer: 144/165Hz, 1440p, G-sync and IPS for the image quality junkies out there. Once calibrated, it has great color accuracy and image quality. The backlight bleeding I've heard about is non-existent on the unit I received. The stand could be a bit more sturdy, but if you have a solid desk that won't be a problem. An overall outstanding monitor.
Great quality monitor, I couldn't be more happy with this purchase!
TN version has worse colors, but at price point 250 pounds below IPS with all its problems it is a great gaming monitor.
