    Here’s what you need to know:
    -HDR mode looks BEAUTIFUL. HDR is great for this monitor in fact. With HDR enabled, Dark Blacks, very opaque, accurate colors – most of all increased brightness and contrast, which is almost necessary with this monitor. The factory settings are a little bit dark for my tastes. Increasing brightness manually may also increase backlight bleed. Some reviewers say HDR doesn’t make much difference, but it does. I bet some people do custom color adjustments, including increasing brightness, and in that case that would make HDR “LESS” noticeable, but that makes the blacks less dark. Both adjusting brightness/color settings or enabling HDR are good options, if you don’t want to mess with HDR, but I prefer the HDR as I think it gives the best overall picture on this and I don’t have to mess with factory settings.
    -GSync Capable with 144Hz refresh rates. Some users say G-Sync and HDR don’t work together on this monitor… but they do. I have HDR enabled with GSync and have my frame rate max capped to 120 FPS in Nvidia Control panel. I can see that I am getting 120 FPS in games and can FEEL the difference between when GSync is on or off, so I know it works with HDR, which I NEVER turn off on this.
    – Crisp pictures. You can SEE the difference between 1080p and 2K. Very obvious improvement, especially with gaming.
    – Great viewing angles, virtually zero washout effect when viewing even from extreme angles
    -Solid refresh rates, to the average person, you will perceive no visible ghosting or screen-tearing in games with lots of action even with HDR enabled (which lowers response times… I don’t know how low the response times are but the advertised <1ms does not apply to when any mode other that gaming/action mode are enabled.

    BE AWARE: Windows10 has HDR as a built in feature and it is BUGGY as heck, especially paired with NVidia cards, apparently. What will happen is that you will see the monitor colors get “washed out” and blacks will get “grayish”. It will look like a cheap TN panel. With only ONE of these monitors, I didn’t have much issue, but having two of these 2K monitors hooked up to my RTX 3080 and suddenly I’d have a monitor suddenly change to “washed out” when starting certain games or apps. IT IS NOT THE MONITOR if this happens to you. I believe some viewers complaining about picture quality caught the Windows HDR bug and didn’t know about it or how to fix it.
    -Here’s what I did to minimize it:
    1) Enable HDR in Windows, and on the monitor
    2) NVidia Control Panel > Color options… choose the option for limited and go with YCBCR 4.2.2… This is because Windows supports the HDR10 standard and you can ONLY get 8-bit option unless you enable this and go to limited mode. You will notice a small change in colors when enabling this. Everything gets slightly brighter and less subtle.

    In some games, you have to TURN OFF Windows HDR for it to work in the game (Red Dead Redemption 2) for example. If a monitor suddenly becomes washed out, while opening/closing apps you can toggle HDR on or off for that screen in display settings in Windows OR you can power the monitor on/off and it usually comes back to it’s full HDR glory. AGAIN be aware it is NOT a monitor issue. HDR is still Buggy and half-baked in Windows and googling Windows10 HDR will give you TONS of input (some different than mine) on how to deal with this. My advice is

    The cool thing about this monitor is that you have the empirically superior picture that ONLY and IPS panel can offer, and you can do it with features like 144Hz refresh rates and GSync enabled. To have the IPS panel benefits, you have to enable HDR. What is also cool is that if your graphics card can’t push the frames high enough in competive shooters, so you are worried about ghosting in competitive shooters with fast action and abrupt screen movements, you can have TN-panel like performance with blazing fast response times, 144Hz freesync/GSync capable refresh rates, just by hitting a button to switch modes (Action mode) (disabling HDR). The result is that it loses some brightness and contrast. This is where a person would probably want to increase Contrast and brightness, and this would make your blacks become more dark gray… ie it will look like a budget gaming VA panel, or a TN panel with better color and viewing angles.

    That is essentially what this monitor is: It is a very good blend of lots of well-executed compromises. It is a cheap IPS panel with great picture, but HDR is MANDATORY to get that perfect IPS experience. That is perfectly fine. It also has some moderate, usually not noticeable, backlight bleed. Again, it is a compromise in exchange for not paying $2K for this 2K IPS monitor with fast refresh rates, backlight bleed is ~50% more than a top-of-the line IPS panel.
    If you are a competitive gamer who just HAS to have 1ms response times and 144Hz GSync, then this monitor will do that too, but the compromise is that HDR has to be disabled (action-mode), but it will require giving up the IPS eye-candy while I play that game.

    Personally I just accept that I mainly play Planet Coaster and RDR2 and I don’t need to ever turn off HDR in those titles with my RTX 3080.

    Cons (which are NOT really cons if you know about monitor tech)
    – SOME backlight bleed (ie when the monitor is on a black loading screen -you can see where light bleeds through the bezel in a few spots, like someone has a flashlight behind your screen and some of that brightness actually bleeds through. Backlight bleed is basically a guarantee with EVERY IPS monitor ever made. The only question is HOW MUCH backlight bleed will you get. This model is middle of the road for backlight bleed, and I have 2 of these and both bleed a little differently. I would categorize backlight bleed as noticeable, but not noticeable when gaming unless you are gaming in a dark room, crawling through a dark dungeon.

    – Refresh rates go UP with HDR enabled (even though you can still get 144Hz refresh rate and GSync at the same time as HDR, to get the <1 ms response times you have to change to non-HDR modes, which is something I would NEVER want to do. For these users, who just want the fastest refresh rates while having deep blacks and bright whites, you want to purchase an at least equally, if not more expensive TN panel instead. HOWEVER, TN panels will GUARANTEE relatively washed out viewing angles, poor washed-out colors compared to IPS.

    Here’s the pros and cons of the different panel types:

    IPS (this monitor)
    Great color accuracy and look. HDR. Black blacks, white whites. Good Refresh rates. PERFECT viewing angles.
    Con- backlight Bleed is noticeable in a dark room on a dark game.

    VA Panel
    Can have decent color accuracy and “OK” refresh rates / response times.. Viewing angles are not great, but usually OK. Wash-out occurs when viewing from angles, but not nearly as bad as TN panels. Contrast ratios are usually between TN and IPS. Usually backlight bleed not a problem. This is the ultimate “master-of-none” panel and usually exist marketed as gaming panels at 1080p only. Nothing wrong with a VA panel if it is a good one.

    TN Panel
    Best Contrast Ratios (Black Blacks, whitest Whites). NO noticeable backlight bleed. Tied with the latest IPS panel breakthroughs for having the fastest response times and highest refresh-rates for competive gaming. You basically can’t beat a TN panel for having a combination of contrast ratios and refresh-rates/response-times
    The CONS however, are not insignificant. The best most expensive TN panels still suffer from poor viewing angles. If you are straight in front of it, the edges and your peripherals in the screen are subtly and more progressively “washed out”. This is the reason that the ideal screen for pro-gaming is usually a 24-inch TN panel because keeping the screen small keeps all the screen action in front of them, and reduces the washout that happens as the edge of the screen gets further away. The color accuracy is considered “poor” and would never be used by creative professionals, and make terrible screens for viewing movies and Netflix and such, due to the lesser color/ picture quality.
    These are screens just for the most die-hard competitive gamer. It is a “tool” really.

    This monitor looks (and acts) a lot like a TN panel (with better color/ viewing angles, worse contrast ratio) when in “action mode”. The rest of the time you get all those benefits of the IPS panel listed above

    So just a really cool monitor. A monitor is a very personal thing, so there is no right answer to user-preference, but I personally would NEVER do anything but IPS at this point now that they have overcome the refresh-rate limits of yesteryear. It is clearly the most advanced monitor tech out right now. This is a GREAT budget entry into the 144Hz 2K IPS world.

    At this price point you’re getting an incredible value. It’s a large monitor with great color contrast and picture quality. At least for someone not super particular about screens, I can’t imagine why someone would pay 2x/3x for one of the Dell Ultrasharp or one of the other popular options that start at $500 or more, when I don’t think I can tell the difference between the two. It’s also a massive step up from a budget monitor – the resolution is obviously higher, it’s larger, and is versatile for gaming or work.

    I’m quite happy with this monitor so far. I’ve fiddled with some settings to adjust to my liking. Colour is great, side is wonderful. I’m not a huge fan of the circle stand, but that’s just preference. Doesn’t negate from quality.

    Coming from 1080p, this is my 1st 1440p monitor that I wanted for upcoming PC games. Works well. Tested, no dead pixels or color problems. Stand is sturdy but may wobble on a cheap desk, but no more than most other monitors.

    Tip: Is this your first 1440p monitor? Change the refresh rate to match the monitor in windows (I set mine to 144Hz). Turning on “Refresh Rate Num” in the monitor control panel will show the monitor refresh rate on screen. This is great so you can adjust certain games so that the refresh rate won’t change after exiting the game (EXAMPLE: Playing a certain game changed the refresh rate to 60Hz. Exiting the game, the Hz stayed that way and caused mouse lag and other issues in another game. This was fixed by changing the graphics setting in the 60Hz game to full screen instead of windowless border).

    The only downsides are acceptable: it does have a slight backlight bleed in the bottom right corner, but it is barely noticeable unless you are in a dark room and looking for it on a black screen, and no more than most other IPS panel monitors. Also, as mentioned in another review, was that the monitor came shipped with the panel pulled apart (shown in image). I snapped it back in place and the monitor is working. QC at Acer needs to do a better job and add 2 more seconds to close the panel. Lost a star on that one.

    Conclusion: I am happy with the monitor and will recommend it for $300 or less.

    I was skeptical upgrading from an already busty IPS, 144hz, freesync, has it all gaming monitor to this 1440p acer monitor. Also reviews had me believe that upgrading from 1080p IPS to 1440p IPS isn’t a big upgrade but man that is a huge understatement.

    This monitor is absolutely perfect in every fashionable way. The options are endless, the ease of use is amazing, and the price was great for $300! The games look absolutely gorgeous and sharp. Also having the HDR setting adds an even more glorified looking display of graphics and colors. I’m shocked. I will never have to upgrade my monitor setup again, well unless this monitor unexpectedly dies in which I will change my review lol.

    The monitor itself is quite light, which I like, making it very easy to pick up and go. The stand it comes with is like a brick that won’t quit. It holds that monitor with a death grip and provides lots of movement in many angles. Easy to unlatch as well if your going to a LAN.

    I love this monitor and I am totally glad I made the purchase. Acer is really stepping up in the gaming field. Thank you!

    Very pleased with this monitor – it has more settings than I know what to do with, but I am running at 144Hz on an nVidia 3060 12GB graphics card with video editing software (PowerDirector 365) with no issues. I think the combination of 27 inch screen size and 1440p resolution is a “sweet spot” since 4K monitors just put a lot of load on your graphics card for little added benefit. But, if you go larger than 27 inch, maybe you would want 4K. I’m personally very happy with this 27inch at 2K and no issues with nVidia working with FreeSync in the monitor. Very satisfied with my purchase and it did come with the Display Port cable and I did use it to ensure no issues with FreeSync and nVidia.

    Update: 10/5/23

    I sent back the defective one and decided to order another one because most reviews are good for it and I feel like I got really unlucky either by whoever shipped it to or from Amazon.
    The second one came in and I was scared, but after turning it on and using it for a few days there isn’t a single flaw. I can’t even find one single dead pixel.

    So I’m going to bump the review up to four stars because the second monitor is perfect for a “budget” 1440p 240Hz monitor. It’s not going to get bumped to five stars because of my experience with the first one

    OLD / FIRST REVIEW from 9/30/23: From the moment the monitor is turned on, there is a GIANT permanent defective blue mark inside the monitor where there appears to be damaged/defective parts. I’m going to have to assume this somehow got damaged along the way, either after quality control or dropped during delivery.
    Unacceptable.
    I cannot give this anything other than a 1 star.
    I will not be able to tell how good this monitor truly is, but there is no way I can do anything other than negatively review it when it comes in this state.

    Also I’ve just found a dead pixel as well in the top middle of the screen. Insane. Take a look at the second picture.

    Este monitor es excelente para jugar a 2K, los detalles se ven muy nítidos si juegas con high/ultra settings. Para usarlo a 10 bits de color necesitas cambiar a 120 Hz. Si es compatible con G-Sync y Free-Sync. El HDR también marca muchísimo la diferencia, como Horizon Zero Dawn (adjunto imágenes), también lo he probado con Hitman 1 y Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Si prefieres jugar a 144 Hz solamente te permite a 8 bits de color.

    La experiencia en general en windows 10 es más suave y si se siente la diferencia si vienes usando 60 Hz. Tienes mayor espacio incluso usando la escala a 125%. En lo personal, para trabajo prefiero dos monitores y como este tiene un tamaño mayor que la pantalla de mi laptop ya no es tan cómodo trabajar así, pero es muchísimo más agradable a la vista la resolución y tamaño de lo que estés utilizando.

    ——————————————————————————–
    ¡IMPORTANTE DETALLE (O PROBLEMA al menos por el momento)!

    Si además de jugar piensas utilizar el monitor para ver contenido ten en cuenta lo siguiente. En youtube hay muchísimos videos a 2K y 4K HDR, los cuales se ven excelentes y no hay ningún problema.

    Pero en general los que generan contenido (youtubers o twitch) suben sus videos a 1080p y esta resolución en pantalla completa NO SE VE BIEN, el re-escalado del monitor (o los ajustes de Nvidia Control Panel, que he intentado) es malo. Tengo una Smart TV 4K (HDR y Dolby Vision) y su re-escalado es muchísimo mejor.

    Tanto en aplicaciones como página web de Crunchyroll, Prime Video (adjunto imagen) y Disney+ (tampoco reconoce Dolby Vision) no reconoce que el monitor es 2K y solamente puedes hacer streaming a 1080p que SE VE PÉSIMO. En Crunchyroll, aunque no hay 4K, en la Smart TV se ve muy bien, pero si pagas las otras dos que menciono no te va a servir de nada en este monitor sinceramente.

    La única aplicación y página web (en Edge) que es decente es Netflix. Si pagas el plan de 4K, si te manda la imagen a 1440p (última imagen) para ciertos contenidos, también detecta HDR y Dolby Atmos (si tienes equipo de audio compatible). Pero no todo lo reconoce bien, sobre todo algunos ánimes que ofrecen (como Yasuke) solamente lo puedes ver a 1080p.

    Solamente queda esperar a que estos servicios de streaming tomen en cuenta esto y se pueda elegir como en youtube la resolución.

    ——————————————————————————–

    Por último, el brillo cuando no usas el modo HDR del monitor (activa HDR en Windows 10 y en el monitor SIEMPRE) es más bajo que cuando si usas HDR. A mi no me gusta usar siempre el HDR porque el contenido que no es HDR se ve extraño y hasta mal. Ten en cuenta la iluminación en donde lo vayas a usar, que no te llegue el sol directamente.

    Estoy usando este monitor con una lapto Asus Tuf a15 (Ryzen 4800H y RTX 2060) con DisplayPort. Al conectarlo a la iGPU reconoce el Free-Sync y a la RTX el G-Sync. Si lo encuentras en oferta sin duda para juegos es una excelente opción.
