Acer Predator Z1 (Z271)

 

The Acer Predator Z1 (Z271) is a good-looking 27-inch gaming monitor that uses a curved screen, Nvidia's G-Sync technology, and a fast refresh rate to deliver smooth gaming performance.

Speedy refresh rate. Solid gaming performance. Nvidia G-Sync enabled. Curved screen. Plentiful settings.

Expensive. Relatively low resolution. Limited video inputs. Middling color accuracy.

Conclusion With the Acer Predator Z1 (Z271), you get solid gaming performance, courtesy of speedy refresh rates and Nvidia's G-Sync technology. Its curved VA panel puts you close to the action and delivers wide viewing angles, but its out-of-the-box...

ACER Predator Z271 Full HD 27" Curved LED Gaming Monitor - Black

 

Gsync and overall quality build

Tobii software can be a bit temperamental. Probably down to the drivers being 32bit rather than 64 bit. However that is an issue for tobii to solve rather than the monitor company.

Got this for a good price. Amazing picture quality (using a GTX 980). Curve of the screen is spot on. Comes with UK & EU power lead. RGB strip under the screen. Can be set up to match screen colour or random. DP & HDMI inputs. Ideal for Xbox on HDMI...
