Acer XB241H

Matte 144hz 1080p TN panel with 30-144hz Nvidia G-Sync.

Measurements by Malinkadink with X-Rite i1 Display Pro
Review by Kit Guru

The Acer has excellent color presets and bested the Viewsonic XG2401 he tested.

Acer Z271

Matte 1080P VA panel with 30-144hz Nvidia G-Sync.

Review by TFT Central

The Acer Z271 uses a 1920x1080 144hz curved VA panel with a fake frame-less casing and an inner black bezel which reduces the perceived black depth, Displayport (required for G-Sync), HDMI a fully adjustable stand and 4x USB 3.0 ports. The Acer has more accurate colors than the Lenovo Y27G which has low preset gamma.

Acer XB272

 Matte 1920x1080 144hz TN panel with Nvidia G-Sync.

The XB272 is fairly accurate but has bad image quality due to it's very low sRGB color space coverage of <91% which results in it looking obviously less vibrant and accurate than the best 144hz TN panels. Low sRGB color space coverage is normal for 240hz TN panels.

Acer XF240H

Acer XF240H & Viewsonic XG2402 Review by NCX

It has a fully adjustable stand, perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel and excellent all around performance once the Black Level and Gamma settings are changed to counter the 144hz gamma drop.

Acer VG271Pb

Review by =DEAD=

Matte 1920x1080 144hz AUO AHVA panel (marketed as IPS) with AMD Free-Sync (48-144hz range). Displayport, VRB (120hz back-light strobing), 2x HDMI 2.0, and 3.5mm Audio Out and a fake border-less or frame-less casing with a perceived black depth decreasing inner black bezel.  The Acer is fairly accurate, but can be improved by selecting the sRGB mode which increases the accuracy as well as reduces the too high preset brightness.

Acer XFA240

Review by Tom's Hardware

Height adjust-able, matte, 1920x1080, 144hz AUO TN panel with 48-144hz AMD Free-Sync (G-Sync Compatible), Displayport, Dual-Link DVI , HDMI and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  The Acer has negligible input lag and very fast pixel response times, as well as good preset color accuracy for a budget TN panel, though the gamma in the 30-90% gray range is a bit too low, as well non-linear.  Tom's Hardware does not test for dark scene banding so I can not highly rank the XFA240 until I know if it does or does not suffer from dark scene banding like many other TN panels.

Acer Predator XN253QP

Review by PRAD

Matte 1920x1080 144hz AUO TN panel with a fully adjustable stand, Nvidia G-Sync (30-144hz), Displayport, HDMI, 4x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The XN253QP has mediocre image quality (even for a TN panel) can only cover 90-91% of the sRGB color space, and has low and non linear preset gamma resulting in washed out colors and shades.  At 60hz PRAD measured a 23.2ms signal delay which is high for a 60hz panel, and a negligible 1.5ms at 144hz, and it offers top tier (fast and overshoot free) overdrive performance when the default Normal Over Drive setting is used at both 60hz and 144hz.  The XN253P offers excellent gaming performance at 144hz, but has bad image quality compared to multiple competitors which offer equal gaming performance for a similar price.
