Acer ConceptD CP3271KP

Added the Review by PRAD to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 32" 4K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide

Fully adjust-able, matte, 120hz (144hz with 2x Displayport cables at 4K) 3840x2160, AHVA/IPS/PLS panel with AMD Free-Sync (xx-144hz range) with 2x Displayport 1.4 (2x DP required for 144hz), 2x HDMI 2.0, 4x USB 3.0, and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Acer is quite accurate, but does not really support HDR due to the lack of local dimming and the low 81% DCI-P3 color space coverage.  The default Normal overdrive setting provides very fast and overshoot free pixel response times at 60hz and 120hz, and at 120hz the higher Extreme overdrive setting provides negligible input lag and fast pixel response times but with a bit of overshoot.  The HDR (DCI-P3) mode is mediocre and best left off due to the low brightness and DCI-P3 color space coverage, and lack of local dimming.

Asus PG279QE

Added the Review by =DEAD= to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 144-165hz 1440p Monitors and Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 1440p AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guides.

Fully adjustable, matte, 2560x1440, 165hz AUO AHVA panel with 30-165hz Nvidia G-Sync, Displayporty, HDMI 1.4 (no G-Sync nation), ULMB (120hz back-light strobing) and 2x USB 3.0.  The Asus PG279QE is an updated version of the PG279Q (2015), released in 2019, and an alternative to the PG279QZ which is also an updated version of the PG279Q with zero improvements and slightly different casing and stand material.  The PG279QE is very accurate, delay free and has excellent overdrive with minimal to no overshoot.
