The Acer Predator XB273U NVbmiiprzx boasts a large, accurate and saturated color gamut and looks fantastic with games, videos and workday apps. It delivers some of the best HDR we’ve seen from an edge-lit monitor and checks all the important performance boxes for gamers.
The most prolific computer display category is easily 27-inch 1440p. There are literally hundreds of examples with at least 144 Hz refresh rates and Adaptive-Sync with prices covering a wide range. You can find a barebones model for under $400. But extra features, like a faster refresh rate, RGB, blur-reduction, HDR or an accurate extended color gamut, will cost you more.
For around $550 as of writing, the Acer Predator XB273U NVbmiiprzx delivers all the above at 170 Hz with G-Sync Compatibility. With DisplayHDR 400 certification, extended color and the solid build quality endemic to Acer’s Predator series, it’s a standout in its crowded class and competes well against the best gaming monitors.
