abunda_amazon_reviews I gave this monitor three stars because of the extremely misleading posting. This is a monitor full of features and compromises. Lets start with the refresh rate. It is 144hz, if you run it with 8-bit colors that look terrible, if you switch to 10-bit you have to run it at 120hz. Lets talk about that 1ms response time. Nope, that only happens with extreme over-drive that distorts the picture to the point that the monitor becomes unusable. Expect about 5ms of response time with this monitor. Next HDR is completely useless, either windows HDR or the monitor HDR, just pretend this feature doesn't exist as windows HDR cause the colors to be washed out, and the monitor's HDR will just tweak some settings but will not display better dynamic range. Keep in mind that IPS displays have atrocious contrast, and this is a very dim display at only 350 nits. The monitor looked so bad out of the box that I seriously considered returning it, but after a bit of tweaking and switching it to 10-bit colors its a lot better. The image quality if a far cry from my old 27" dell 4k, but its passable with decent viewing angles, and the faster refresh rate is nice for gaming. Overall this is a fine monitor, just don't think you'll get all the advertised features together.;;Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2020;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Good monitor with compromises and misleading marketing.;;V. Silva;;;I received my monitor and when I plugged it in there was a blue squiggly line near the top of the display. After contacting customer service, the representative said that there would be a $159 fee to replace the monitor that was defective when I opened it.

The first will be regarding specs, initial reaction, picture/HDR/performance and quality for the monitor I received. The second part will be an update after more use time to bring up any issues that arise down the road. So first off I would order an HBR2 or 3 rated Display Port cable to go with it. Its much better than the HDMI cabled included and DP can take better advantage of 10bit/1440p144hz (or 10bit-4k 4.4.4)(not that this monitor supports either, I'll get to that in a moment) The stand is also pretty okay, it seems well made and doesn't seem to flimsy compared to some other I have seen. I feel its likely the weight of this monitor that can make the 3 point stand design seem like a bad choice. Given the tips of the stand are much thinner and can bare the most stress if the monitor has any lateral force applied to it. Combined with the monitor being a bit on the heavy side compared to similar in its same but more expensive class. I do love the looks/finish of the monitor though. Great aesthetics all around. The UI is pretty okay, better than some others that are even more expensive than this one, It give you the option to save 3 presets of your own. Has a good range of control, only drawback I felt is there is no sharpness adjustment at all. It only includes a "Super Sharpness" on/off option. Which can be hit or miss. Looks great on with basic web browsing. Gaming, I would keep it off. The factory calibration was near perfect. I have tried adjusting it every which way, tried a few profiles others have used. It honestly looks best for me right out of the box. Note that the 8bit+2 FRC is only possible when in 120Hz. For me that isnt a huge issue. I didnt expect to being going over 120hz at all because I like to keep my graphic settings as high as I can. And prefer that over 24 extra hz. But thats just me. I went through the whole list of tests for monitors... All of them actually performed way above what I expected. Except 2. The pixel walk test. Failed all of them. And I can really notice pixel walk if I try. But given the last monitor I had for 6+ years had it bad. It doesn't bother me a bit. It's something you will likely never know was there. The second was ghosting. It was VERY VERY SMALL. It was mostly noticeable in 10 bit HDR. With 8 Bit/HDR off/All stock. Honestly it was so minimal like I said earlier. If I didnt read about it and test for it. Likely would never know what it is. The newer Innolux panels have fixed a lot of ghosting and flickering issues. The AOU panels are said to be the bad ones. (CHECK YOUR MONITORS MANUF. DATE BY HOLDING THE BUTTON ABOVE THE JOYSTICK THEN PRESS POWER BUTTON. A SMALL RED "F" WILL APPEAR IN THE UI MENU AT THE TOP. ANY DATE AFTER NOV/2018/SHOULD BE AN INNO. PANEL. YOU SHOULD BE FINE.) With IPS you are going to get ghosting no matter what. Just adjust your settings to balance picture quality,refresh, with limiting ghosting. No dead or stuck pixels. I have had zero flickering at all so far. Back Light Bleed is also pretty damn good. Its just a tiny tiny part of the bottom left corner of the screen In the BLB test. (SMALL UPDATE: Seems it has near zero Bleed, what I was seeing was IPS glow at certain angles. Like a bit of ghosting dude to the lower pixel response times. You can expect a small bit of IPS glow.. As long as neither are excessive and too noticeable under normal use. Less likely to have it with the more expensive IPS monitors though The picture/color quality is pretty damn good. The colors are very rich, the brightness is also really bright. I actually prefer to tune mine down to 75 from 80 stock. As some websites with white layouts may be a bit too bright. Contrast is pretty great also, didnt need to adjust at all. Colors are best at standard/HDR on/10 bit for basic use. After a few hours in elite dangerous/insurgency sandstorm/CSGO/BFV I can tell that set up does have a small ghosting affect on sharp textures/text in game. But it was very minimal and only in certain situations. 144hz/Standard/8 bit/ HDR off/Super Sharpness OFF/ ACM off seemed to give the best performance in that regard. picture quality was honestly the same in my opinion. It "almost" eliminated ghosting or kept it to a minimum. Viewing angle is also pretty okay. UP/DOWN I would say that 178 degree claim is accurate. LEFT/RIGHT its more like 45 degrees then you start getting affected by it. Note that this monitor only displays 10bit Color Depth at 120Hz. For some that may be a problem. But dont let it be a deal breaker. For $350 this monitor was honestly a lot better than expected. Some comments/reviews may scare you. But Acer did iron out a lot of kinks last year and a lot of those reviews are from this monitors initial release or shortly after. It DID have a lot of issues with flickering/ghosting/etc. The color accuracy is pretty dang good for the most part, however if you do any work that requires absolute color accuracy. This isnt a true 10bit monitor, It fakes it using an 8 Bit+2 FRC. Meaning it pretty much simulates it by using the high refresh rate to flash between the 2 seperate colors to simulate another color. For example if you need a green thats 7.5, it will flash a lighter green pixel at 7, then a darker green pixel at 8. For an average of 7.5. (in a nutshell) Im not well versed in color accuracy for those that edit video/photos but this monitor may not be the best for you. But as of right now for the price and only if you can find no other better IPS monitor in the same price range, this is a pretty solid bet. I love it, the colors just pop and is just night and day compared to my Samsung TN monitor. I'll admit I was VERY nervous at the time of purchase. Thats why I felt a bit compelled to to give a full review, and why It ended up being the longest review I have every written. This is why, at the moment this ips monitor is easily in the top 5 for $350 1440P IPS monitors. The other

I have had zero flickering at all so far. Back Light Bleed is also pretty damn good. Its just a tiny tiny part of the bottom left corner of the screen In the BLB test. (SMALL UPDATE: Seems it has near zero Bleed, what I was seeing was IPS glow at certain angles. Like a bit of ghosting dude to the lower pixel response times. You can expect a small bit of IPS glow.. As long as neither are excessive and too noticeable under normal use. Less likely to have it with the more expensive IPS monitors though The picture/color quality is pretty damn good. The colors are very rich, the brightness is also really bright. I actually prefer to tune mine down to 75 from 80 stock. As some websites with white layouts may be a bit too bright. Contrast is pretty great also, didnt need to adjust at all. Colors are best at standard/HDR on/10 bit for basic use. After a few hours in elite dangerous/insurgency sandstorm/CSGO/BFV I can tell that set up does have a small ghosting affect on sharp textures/text in game. But it was very minimal and only in certain situations. 144hz/Standard/8 bit/ HDR off/Super Sharpness OFF/ ACM off seemed to give the best performance in that regard. picture quality was honestly the same in my opinion. It "almost" eliminated ghosting or kept it to a minimum. Viewing angle is also pretty okay. UP/DOWN I would say that 178 degree claim is accurate. LEFT/RIGHT its more like 45 degrees then you start getting affected by it. Note that this monitor only displays 10bit Color Depth at 120Hz. For some that may be a problem. But dont let it be a deal breaker. For $350 this monitor was honestly a lot better than expected. Some comments/reviews may scare you. But Acer did iron out a lot of kinks last year and a lot of those reviews are from this monitors initial release or shortly after. It DID have a lot of issues with flickering/ghosting/etc. The color accuracy is pretty dang good for the most part, however if you do any work that requires absolute color accuracy. This isnt a true 10bit monitor, It fakes it using an 8 Bit+2 FRC. Meaning it pretty much simulates it by using the high refresh rate to flash between the 2 seperate colors to simulate another color. For example if you need a green thats 7.5, it will flash a lighter green pixel at 7, then a darker green pixel at 8. For an average of 7.5. (in a nutshell) Im not well versed in color accuracy for those that edit video/photos but this monitor may not be the best for you. But as of right now for the price and only if you can find no other better IPS monitor in the same price range, this is a pretty solid bet. I love it, the colors just pop and is just night and day compared to my Samsung TN monitor. I'll admit I was VERY nervous at the time of purchase. Thats why I felt a bit compelled to to give a full review, and why It ended up being the longest review I have every written. This is why, at the moment this ips monitor is easily in the top 5 for $350 1440P IPS monitors. The other
