Experience high-end visual performance with a crisp WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution offering a great visual experience for watching movies, heavy work applications and even gaming

Get the smoothest gaming experience on the planet with NVIDIA G-SYNC, which eliminates screen tearing and reduces stuttering by syncing your monitor's refresh rate with frames rendered by your GPU

Take charge of any situation with Predator game view where you can adjust dark boost levels, make precise colour adjustments and set up aim points for hip-fire accuracy

1ms high response time and 144 Hz refresh rate delivering ultra-smooth gaming experience

Predator EyeProtect's flicker-less, bluelight filter, comfy view and low-dimming technologies minimise eye-strain from long gaming sessions

great price for a 144-165hz monitor

TN panel, still looks great and preferred for very fast gaming

not many people know about this monitor but its exaclty like the IPS variant but just TN instead

G-sync V2

1ms response

Display port / HDMI

Also forgot to mention it has Nvidia 3D which can be used in games or to watch 3D blu ray movies

seems a very good price compared to everything else in this range

Someone tell me why I'd spend this much on a PC monitor when I could buy a 40+" 4K tv for less and use that?

I guess you'll have to stump up an extra £220 for the IPS :-) then play lottery with the backlight bleed hehe

the Asus Rog variant of this (PG278Q) is still £589 is also over 2 years old and has G sync V1 and is only 144hz

so imo this is a steal.. and looks better

can say from first hand because i've owned this monitor it is amazing and so responsive and looks really smart on the desk, I ordered mine from Acer store directly few months back

Snap! Price is very tempting though... Deal Heated.

I've been wanting to buy the IPS version for a month but no-one has stock (or no reputable shop has stock). Currys were sellling them for £600 but it looks like it maybe discontinued? Torn between that or an X34A but put off by this because of the fiddling required to run certain games at widescreen (or not).

Its time like this I wish there were some decent high-street retailers were you can view monitors before purchase.

You don't.

PCMR do!

I've been keeping an eye on this spec ie 1440p, 27" gsync and this is about as cheap as I've seen. Its a small range, and the IPS panels are very pricey so i'm tempted by TN. I've heard that with the right setup/colour profiles you can get very very close to an IPS type monitor with modern TNs. Very tempted.

I actually ordered this yesterday afternoon same price. Scorching deal, been waiting for something low £400s for 1440p g-sync. Usually £500+ for that kind of spec and £600+ for IPS.

TV input lag is generally terrible and the 144Hz refresh rate is MUCH sharper than useless 60-75Hz if your GPU can provide the frames ;)

Still hesitating? I remember you made a similar comment on my X34a deal. BTW, I have bought my X34a when it was £899 on ebuyer, it's life-changing!

Yep it's the price for something unseen (and the price is up £70). Glad your enjoying yours!

Did you buy this? Have you seen any reviews on this or the panel it is using?
#17
I ordered this exact item from Amazon on the 20th September and still waiting for an estimate for when they'll get stock. I'm hoping it happens, but i'm fearing it'll just stay as 'Pre-order' indefinitely.
#18
anything new on the stock for this though ?

There's something weird going on with this monitor. I pre ordered a month ago and, as I'm the impatient type, got in touch with Amazon. They told me that Acer has not given them a release date yet and to contact them. So I did. They told me that the monitor has been released months. Not once, not twice, but on three separate chats. (Yes I used the correct model number during). Which is obviously ridiculous as there would be a 1000 YouTube reviews the day it's released. I don't know what is going on. Anyone add to this?

they did have it on Acer store website thats how I ordered it

but they must of ran out of stock now and trying to fulfill amazon instead
#21
The monitor has definitely already been released. Plenty of people already own it... No bloody idea what's going on with it now though. Everywhere is out of stock, not released and saying it needs to be pre-ordered. Makes absolutely no sense... There's a cover up going on somewhere.
#22
Why has there been no coverage by any Youtubers then? Every other predator variant has a 1000 reviews. I can't find reference to this on YouTube at all. This should, by right, be the best gaming monitor available (IPS aren't ideal for gaming with longer response times) so why the zero publicity?
#23
Spoke to scan. They are still waiting for a response from Acer. They were expecting stock in on the 30th of september. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-acer-predator-zeroframe-nvidia-g-sync-led-backlit-lcd-tn-panel-144hz-2560x1440-1ms-100m1-dp-hdmi-

No idea what's going on... I think they must be having some issues behind the scenes.
Keep this forum updated of any changes guys and girls. Would be nice to find out what's going on, love the look of this monitor.
#25
I thought this was out for months too. But there seems to be only 1 youtube video and even then all it's doing is showing the menu on it off. Been trawling the net, think someone on some german forum have got theirs. Doesn't seem like they've had any issues. Think they bought off amazon germany, although all the ones sold there seem to be warehouse deals, theres loads of them, and no new ones.
#26
Yeah it's really weird. Like up to this date the best TN/Gaming Monitor is the Asus pg298q. This monitor, I'm led to believe, uses the same panel but has an extra 21hz, gsync v2 and is £200 cheaper than the 2 year old Asus. This should be making a huge buzz on the tech review pages but nada. It doesn't make sense.
#27
Just got word from Acer. UK stock has been low due to a "shipment issue". Scan and Overclockers should have stock this month. Waiting to hear about Amazon.
#28
And just now confirmed Amazon should this month too.

Amazon is alot cheaper than anywhere else for this monitor atm... Might get the pre order in now before they come in and the price rockets... Nice one charle

People still propagating the myths about IPS being too slow for gaming then?

A 4ms IPS panel can refresh the screen 250 times in one second. Given this will only run at 165Hz, that makes the IPS considerably faster than it needs to be.

People also dont consider input lag. I upgraded from a pg278q to a pg279q, despite being IPS at 4ms, it was slightly faster overall because of lower input lag according to TFTCentral

Response time does not equal the refresh rate.

Response time is how long it takes for your monitor to display the image after the command is executed.
Refresh rate is how many frames are rendered each second.

For an actual pragmatic answer:

I own a 144hz Monitor (1080p, TN. It's a BenQ model I can't remember off the top of my head).

For general use: The high frame rate REALLY reduces the amount of stress headaches I get. It's wonderful, and I hate going back to the office and using the "standard" 60hz panels.

For casual gaming: The high refresh rate, as above, really helps avoid headaches. It also looks spectacularly smooth.

For hardcore gaming: The response time and blur is significantly reduced over a "standard" monitor. This can help with competitive gaming.

This monitor also has GSYNC which drastically reduces screen tearing/artefacts which can occur if the frame rate drops below the ideal 144hz output.

As to why you'd spend your money on this over a 40 inch 4K telly. Well this is subjective and dependent on your circumstances, but I spend far more time in front of my PC than my TV. There's not a great deal of content out there in 4K currently (and even fewer methods for actually sending a 4K image to a 4K TV. Today's consoles are only now being adapted to send 4K video, but not process a video game in 4K. there's a lot of misinformation with the new Xbox scorpio/PS4 pro regarding this, look into it further), and by the time there is, 4K TVs will be better and cheaper.

Case in point: The benefits of a 144hz gsync 1440p (read: hi-res) monitor at this price CURRENTLY vastly outweigh any 4K TV you might want.

Repeat that again and again until you get it right.

Refresh rate is how many frames are rendered each second.

You are actually wrong as well.

Response time listed on these monitors is g2g. The time the pixels take to change from black to white to black again. Lower response time leads to better motion clarity.

You referencing input lag. Input lag on monitors often primarily comes from signal processing. Modern gaming ips and tns are often very similar in input lag so you won't notice any difference here.

The main advantages of ips are better viewing angles and more vibrant colours. Though tn isn't as far behind on colours as it used to be.

Tn has better motion clarity, is cheaper and doesn't have the save QC issues that the ips model have.

The ips model is very popular and has the same name as the tn. Which is why this monitor may seem familar to a lot of you.

Lol, all I was trying to say is that the TN displays the information you need to see faster. Do I give a ****? No! I would of course get the IPS if I could afford it. It's just a little consolation of going with the TN. I ain't no screen scientist!

And yes to the person who asked. Acer just confirmed Amazon would have stock at some stage this month.
#38
Plasma blows all these arguments out of the water. Responce time of 0.001ms is 1000 times faster than this. What do all the fanboys have to say about that? Why are you not all using plasma screens?

This hz patter is nothing more than marketing drivel dreamed up by lcd panel manufacturers when plasma was still the leading tech in terms of sales.

Looks like the some people are still taking the bait

How does the above compare? Neither seems to have reviews or anything, and the Dell is 4K (along with G-Sync and 165Hz)...

Seems pretty much the same. Both are QHD not 4k though .Smaller screen at 24 inches compared to 27 inches. The 27 inch Dell equivalent is easily had at £500 if you want that. I bought this Acer on Amazon over the 27 inch Dell due to the saving in price.
