Gaming monitors have sub-standard picture quality, and I'd like to see that change.
Color calibration out of the box was so accurate that my i1 display colorimeter was not able to improve on it in a meaningful way. The fulla array local dimming panel allows for excellent blacks, and "true" HDR. It's amazing, but it costed me about $1,600 when I bought it.

Not good
Adaptive sync, hdr 400, 1ms response time - you can’t have them all at the same time If you turn 1ms VRB on, the system will automatically shutdown other two. Acer over promised.

At 120 Hz it felt worse than my existing IPS panel Acer Predator XB271HU in terms of motion artifacts. The motion blur itself felt about the same, but I feel that there were significantly more color artifacts (overshoot?) when I was moving the camera fast. This could very well be a VA vs IPS thing as I am not accustomed to VA panels.
Checks all the boxes
4k - Check IPS - Check 120-hz - Check G-Sync - Check You would be surprised how difficult it is to check those 4 specification above without paying an obscene amount. The monitor market at the moment is quite expensive with the release of the 30 series Nvidia cards. 4k 120hz is now a reality. This m...

Gsync vertical line issue in 2018.....
Great monitor if you get one that works. The one I received still has the Gsync bug from 2016 due to having falty/old firmware on the Gsync module. This is unacceptable as this was supposed to be fixed at least a year ago. Be aware when buying this monitor that the one you receive could have gsync i...

Great monitor, but with a deep flaw
This is a great monitor, but with a big problem: the base. It is way too deep. Deeper than it needs to be. As a result, the monitor takes a lot more space than necessary. If you don't have a deep desk, you might be stuck with a monitor sitting on your face. I assume Acer subscribes to the notion tha...

- I use the screen at 144hz with no overclocking. This works very well.
All monitors aren't created equal -- great monitor if you get lucky!
I've read tons of pros and cons of this monitor, and was a bit skeptical at first -- but in the end I just bought it and hoped for the best. Originally it was saying delivered, but when I got home from class it was missing -- thankfully I found out my roommate had brought it in for me and just place...

144hz 1440p Gaming Monitor Recommendations?
I went with the Acer Predator XB271HU. It’s 1440p, 27”, 144hz but overclocks to 165hz at the press of a button. Looks beautiful and the monitor swivels to 90 degrees if you’re ever doing dev work in portrait mode.
