Acer’s Predator XN253QX Monitor Offers Ultra-Quick Response Times (and Beautiful Graphics)

PC enthusiast? No doubt you’re familiar with Acer’s line of PC peripherals, known for their quality and reliability. The XN253QX, the newest model in Acer’s predator series, is no exception.

Acer Predator: Ultra-Fast Display Times

With a 240Hz frame refresh rate, the Predator is ultra-fast, capable of turning out extremely smooth visuals with minimal tearing and stuttering. 32 inches across, this monitor comes in many different models – from the extremely high-resolution (4k UHD)  to the more modest (1920 x 1080). It also has an extremely low 0.4 ms response time. The lower the response time, the faster gamepad inputs register. Even a millisecond can be the difference between making a difficult in-game shot or action and missing it entirely.

And it has 2 separate inputs, HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 (a 240Hz refresh rate is only available on DisplayPort 1.2). And, with built-in support for Nvidia’s G-SYNC, the Predator can automatically detect Nvidia peripheral hardware and optimize performance to match.Acer Predator Monitor 3

As far as aesthetics go, the Predator is a real looker. The angular casing looks good sitting on any desk, and the “zero-frame” design makes the displayed image flush with the rest of the screen. The side casing includes 2 USB 3.0 ports for fast charging of connected devices. The thin design means it fits on smaller workspaces.

High-End Monitor Worth The Investment

It certainly ain’t cheap, but the Predator is a high-quality product. To get the most out of it, you need a PC powerful enough to take advantage of the high refresh rates and low response times. But, even with lower-grade desktop builds, the Predator is a solid investment and gorgeous looking screen that’ll take your immersive gaming experience to the next level.
