Alienware AW2720HF

Review by Rtings

Matte, fully adjust-able, 240hz, 1920x1080, IPS panel with 20-240hz AMD Free-Sync (not G-Sync Compatible), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, 4x USB 3.0, and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Alienware AW2720HF is preset to the RPG mode which is fairly accurate, but has too high (2.39 average) and skewed gamma resulting in colors and shades being a bit too dark, and loss of detail or black crush when viewing dark content.  The Alienware also can not fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces, so it can not display some colors as accurately and vibrantly as it should, even when calibrate, but it does come close to doing so (97%), and can still be considered good.  The AW2720HF has negligible input lag and offers very fast and nearly completely overshoot free pixel response times at 240hz when the Fast  overdrive setting is used, but has slow pixel response times and higher than average (negligible; 15ms delay at 60hz vs typical 9-10ms measured by Rtings) at 60hz which prevents it from being an outstanding console and PC gaming monitor.

The Acer XV273X is significantly more accurate, has superior gradient handling, vastly superior 60hz overdrive, and slightly lower input lag at 60hz (11.4ms vs 15ms), but slightly slower, though still excellent 240hz overdrive versus the Alienware AW2720HF.

Added the Review by PC Lab PL to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 240-280hz Monitors buying guide.

Matte 1920x1080 240hz AUO TN panel with a fully adjustable stand, VRB (back-light strobing), AMD Free-Sync (40-240hz), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0 (240hz), 4x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The AW2518HF has accurate but too high gamma, accurate but too blue color, and like most 240hz TN panels can not fully cover the SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces (caps at 93%; over and under-saturates some colors).  Overall it has great image quality for a TN panel, low input lag and good overdrive, though PC Lab does not much much information about the overdrive so I can not properly compare it to competitors until more detailed reviews come out.
