Bonus!
Although the box matches the advertised spec, the actual machine has an i5-7400 (Kabylake) not an i5-6400(Skylake).

While not a massive performance improvement, it's definitely welcome as the CPU is the weakest component.

I guess Acer refreshed their later production runs with whatever they could get hold of.

It also has 1x8GB 2133(Crucial CT8G4DFS8213.C8FDR), and 3 free ram slots, which is both good and bad; good for future upgradeability, but bad for current performance (only single channel)

I know the gpu is worse but at least I can update the cpu when the time comes and my warranty is at least 12 months rather than 3. Most of the parts came from amazon too so easy to source. Oh, windows 10 £3.50 from ebay I guess for me building your own works out better than this deal but appreciate this isnt an option for some people. If thats the case though Id recommend a better warranty.


Terrible build with a crippled GPU and CPU and by the looks of the price a cheapo PSU and Case.... Needs £500 spemt on it to put it right lol
People saying the card is £300... It's £300 brand new, this is not. So I would probably say it's closer to £200.

Not everyone wants 2k or 4k, with the additional overheads of buying a GPU that can cope with the added strain in games.

1080p60hz the gold standard in PC gaming? Even for 60hz 1440p has been around for a long while now. It's not that 60hz isn't playable but for fast twitch shooters where you are using a mouse to control your view there is a very noticeable difference dropping from 120hz to 60hz. If you are using analog sticks on a joypad the difference is way less apparent. There are still plenty of games I will chose to play on a tv at 60hz rather than 144hz on my monitor.

A 1080ti will hit 144hz in most pvp twitch shooters at 1440p at high or max settings paired with the right cpu. Although in competitive shooters people tend to run lower settings for general increased visibility and also to get reduced input lag from a higher frame rate anyhow.

Ordered it yesterday, even though out of stock... hopefully they'll get more stock soon.

I see the price is up to £499.99 today, so marked as expired.
Had been looking at this for quite a while and finally too the plunge Friday (and got it by Saturday!!), it's an amazing monitor and this price is the second cheapest new.

My only complaint is that I think it has a dead pixel... now and again one turns red... i poke it and it goes away for a while... but i might send it back and ask for another.
If this is anything like the 1080p model then it will lose its memory if you turn off the screen. You can save it to a preset but you have to change it to that profile manually each time you turn the monitor on. The standby rotates colours when off so it's pretty much necessary to turn it off unless you want a light show.

If anyone can confirm if this model still has that problem then it would be great.

EDIT: Found a way to fix it! Press and hold the menu button and button above it together and it will take the monitor out of 'factory' mode.

The flickering is completely random. There is no pattern of why or when it pops up. Also, it appears for a fraction of a second and does not cover across the entire screen. Like, you would only see lines on one side of the screen for a split-second then it disappears. Sometimes, you won't see anything for days and sometimes you would experience it multiple times in an hour.

Ah that sucks, Guess I was a lucky one, but by looks of it they will honour the price and item if they get more stock?

Ordered mine Thursday night around 19:00ish (cut of for next day was at 16:00), dispatched Friday (dont delivery weekends unless pay more), arrived Monday 9th.

I had a standard 60hz, 1920x1200 HP 24" monitor.

Playing battlefield 1 and can tell a massive difference with my gtx 1070 rog strix, vsync disabled and g-sync enabled. Its so smooth.

Also tested CSS, will have to limit my fps as I get more than 240 on most older games, so will cause input lag if I go over what my monitor is able to produce.

But overall happy with the purchase. (would suggest a 144hz monitor is good enough, as most games cant do more than 200fps anyway if you having high graphics settings)

I paid for the monitor on Saturday night while it said there was available stock, haven't had any notification of dispatch as of yet so I created a webnote, have been told the monitor is no longer in stock and has caused my order to be delayed. He immediately offered me to pick another monitor of the same value, completely defeats the point of getting this promotion.I can't see them getting more of these as they are clearly end of line, they have also pulled the product off the website completely.


Just had my originally "out of stock" order from Amazon dispatched and they're still offering the monitor for sale as "out of stock" (albeit at £499 now) so Acer must still be making them or have stock somewhere. If you're relying on the Overclockers forum Acer Bargain thread for information, I wouldn't believe anything that is there; they're salesmen and contradict themselves. At one point it says they're end of line, other times it says they don't know / hope Acer can offer the same deal in the future. Apparently the Acer deals were Black Friday bargains they just couldn't bear to hold back for 2 months, etc etc etc.

Without freesync or gsync, won't you see stutters?


Yes you will still get screen tearing unless you use V-sync or something similar. This is why you ideally want Freesync or Gsync although it will cost more than this.

Personally I don't see the point of 144Hz without it unless your rig can do 144fps.

Really not sure this is good value. You are paying £200 more than the Omens that appear on here from time to time (I payed £746 for mine earlier in the year) for a ti and a 17inch screen. The ti is definately not worth this sort of price jump - and the 17inch screen? are the prices usually that different between 15 and 17 inch? Never had one so dont know.

I would tend to agree if you are willing to pay this close to a grand then wait till the 1060 lappys drop into this range - there really is a big jump in performance between the 1060 and the 1050(ti)'s

Good review here for the same laptop apart from the CPU
ZahrinAdwa28th Sep

http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-980M-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-Mobile/m15596vsm164336It's no where near to the 1060



It depends on the type of 1060 as well. The 3gb max Q is probably weaker then a 980m for example (although it would keep all the advantages of being a newer card). The full 3gb version vs the 980m is very close so that extra power will matter.

In the end, for this laptop, I'd worry about that CPU. Laptop CPU's are still much weaker then desktop cpus.

You'll notice the difference in pixel size in a second when you compare it to a 1440p 27" monitor - I certainly did when I got my 1440p 27" monitor as an upgrade to my old 1080p 27" one.
I'm also gaming on a 27" 1080 monitor and no complaints here

Exceptional compared to a 14" SVGA monitor?



I would say yes. Now, were you trying to make a point/statement or simply trolling because your bored?

I play games on a iiyama 27' 144Hz @ 1080p, more or less the same as this monitor, and i must say the "techsperts" above add nothing to the discussion, probably because they have never owned a 27' monitor and are simply repeating some "youtuber"..

I sit arms length away from the monitor, wear glasses, and I dont see anything blurry, pixelated or any other abnormal visions the people above seem to have experience of.......

Very Funny - No, its an excellent monitor. Picture is crystal clear and the colours are immaculate. People need to get of there high horse about 1080p on anything over a 24" monitor. It is worth the money!
