Acer XB270HAbprz 27-inch G-Sync Monitor Detailed

Ahead of its launch, we scooped a few more details of the XB270HAbprz, a high-end variant of Acer's upcoming XB0 line of monitors that support NVIDIA G-Sync. There's good news, and bad news. Bad news first. The XB270HAbprz features just full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) native resolution, which at 27-inch size, is bound to look dotty for the keen-eyed. It is based on a TN-film panel. The good news, however, is that the display offers a staggering 144 Hz of refresh rate, which means it can drive 3D at 72 Hz per plane, and a blazing response time of 1 ms. Other vitals include 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, 1000:1 static contrast ratio with dynamic mega-contrast, and viewing angles of 160° V, 170° H. Inputs include a DisplayPort 1.2 connector, with dual-link DVI adapter. It lacks any internal speakers, but features a 4-port USB 3.0 hub.
