I think under £340 delivered (prime members) is a decent price considering this is an IPS panel and has decent attributes for gaming, especially now NVidia effectively works with Freesync on most monitors.

Product Description
So Much to See
Take in the full view of the display with its ZeroFrame design atop the sharply-cut three-pronged stand.

Lightning Fast Freesync
Discover the joys of a seamless game experience with Radeon Freesync, in vivid IPS, with refresh rates of up to 144 Hz.

Firmly Planted
The three-pronged stand saves on desk space without sacrificing on style.

Goodbye to Bezels
The ZeroFrame design makes for a near-seamless look, allowing you to see more of what matters most: the screen.

An Ergonomic Edge
Good monitors should cause little to no strain. With a tilt of -5 degrees to 20 degrees, you can put your mind, and your neck, at ease.

Impactful Sound
What you hear is just as good as what you see with the power of the dual two-watt built-in speaker system.

Yes, Resolution Matters
Choose from resolutions ranging from Full HD up to 4K in vibrant, colour-accurate IPS. Which one calls to you?

Fast-paced Frames
With a 144-Hz refresh rate and 1-ms Visual Response Boost (VRB) technology, gameplay is seamless and practically blur-free.

Superbly Synced
Radeon FreeSync ends choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artefact-free performance at Visually any framerate.

Adjustments On The Fly
No need to fiddle with buttons. Easily modify your monitor settings using the Display Widget utility software

Has been this price for a while now. Kicking myself for not picking it up on Prime day.
Awesome monitor.. If you get one that actually works. So many stories on t'internet about people receiving with dead pixels, and/or horrendous backlight bleeding though

i bought one and sent back because of bleeding but the monitor itself is not good for fps gamers i guess. It has a weird blur.
Looks like this is almost the best price its been for some time, via https//uk…com

Not 1ms unless you use a mode that ruins the picture quality. Marketing nonsense.

Acer build quality strikes again. Unfortunately there's a reason they're generally the cheapest for anything they make.

I've read lots of reports about random screen flashes and horizontal lines too (apparently they scrimpted on the EM shielding)

1ms IPS seemed a bit too good to be true at this price
Most IPS/VA monitors tend to quote a 1ms MPRT as opposed to GTG (grey to grey). Very few IPS monitors achieve a 1ms GTG response, with LG's newest nanoIPS among the few coming to mind.

personally I would recommend to avoid this particular monitor (and panel) and opt for the MSI MAG271CQR (i've got one) which is better suited for gaming without some of the qualtiy issues that these seem to suffer from.

LG 27GL850 which is not even out seems to be advertised as the first gaming monitor with 1 ms IPS, with the obvious terrible picture quality when using 1 ms, so I'm kinda intrigued with this model not being mentioned

having watched LTT's on that LG monitor, apparently using 'faster' rather than 'fastest' is the best you are going to get - which appears to be the fastest IPS. I'm considering it although only Overclockers in the UK will be selling it, at the moment.

Personally, I would still prefer the picture quality, better colours and viewing angles over arguably non-noticeable pixel speed. IPS over TN any day of the week for me.

Hmmm this or the Dell S2719DG?

Does your msi not have the colour banding issue? The impression I'm getting is most if not all have the issue

Ther was some colour banding but nothing too noticable for me. Out of the box settings aren't ideal either so with a quick calibration everything was much better.

Thanks, think I might just go for it

I got mine for around £300 but personally wouldn't pay 350. If you're looking to spend less then amazon.co.uk/Ace…_50 is also a good option given the price. There is also a pair of Samsung monitors of the same spec as this around the 250-270 mark but lack freesync so this Acer is the better option over

Tried a few screens around Black Friday deals last year, and this one was the cheapest and the best of them all. Of course it has its flaws, but at that time it was a good deal. Funny thing - tried to register it with Acer, s/n has not been accepted. Contacted Acer directly, they don't gives a s#it. Quote: "Amazon is US company, so product can not be registered in Europe".
