Just received in my review

So far everything works and has arrived well. I confess, at first glance I wasn't sure if it was curved. I have a Samsung Curve and its curve is a bit more curved, ok let's get to the actual test. NOT DOA - phew (my box had serious dents in several places from what appeared to be a sharp metal corner), no dead pixels either. . I'm winning this moment. Assembly was a breeze, it pulled out and slid right into the stand with a screw (decent quality). Both the monitor and mount are lightweight…

Colors are very dull

This product is not worth the price in my opinion. Colors are very matte, the only setting that gives decent colors on this display is HDR mode. Unfortunately, in HDR mode, brighter colors are boosted and become too bright, which is a problem. I wanted to run 2 monitors and am glad I only bought one in that order rather than 2 so I could find a better one. I expected more from this as it is a leading brand in electronics and gaming, but this purchase may draw my attention to them further in the

Great if you're not looking too hard

A 4ms response time might seem very reliable, but when you're running games at 100+ fps (especially FPS GAMES) you might have a hard time hitting your target and you'll definitely find that it's not necessarily your fault . Compared to my 1ms monitor, I just can't believe I've been using it for so long. The screen does not tolerate reflections well. Actually, he's very bad at it. When my phone's screen lights up on my desk, the picture quality is affected. God forbid there was no light in my…

Pretty decent I think

I make this review after a year and a half of use, the quality is generally high quality plastic. I haven't had any issues with rapid wear like other brands. needs to be recalibrated if i'm not very strict on it, free sync works fine on my nvidia machine. When I first turned it on, it was amazing to see the curved screen perspective. Why didn't I give 5 stars now? After 3 months of use, I see some small dots on the left side, dead pixels, at first I was very upset, but over time they just…

A budget monitor is fine, but the display colors are dull.

At under $170, it's not bad for a budget-conscious gamer looking for a fast monitor. For me, the main purpose is just an additional monitor for work. I have an LG UltraGear monitor as my main monitor, which honestly beats it in dynamic color range. In contrast, this ASUS cannot achieve true black. It's just "dismal". There are no very dark grays or blacks. Even with extensive parameterization attempts. The HDR setting seemed to offer the best contrast, but it was far from perfect. Your…

  • It won't connect to my Macbook Pro. I paid for an extra cable that doesn't fit.

First, this monitor doesn't have speakers - and it never claims to have one either - but it does have an audio output that you can connect headphones or speakers to. This is an AMAZING gaming monitor! I switched from a 24 inch ASUS 75Hz 2ms monitor that was 10 years old to this 144Hz 3ms monitor and the difference is amazing! 144Hz makes gaming smooth and crazy! Don't worry about the response time, there are no ghosting or tearing issues here. !Great monitor and oh the CURVE is great for gaming

Great monitor, especially for the price!

Pros: Excellent monitor with high refresh rate and minimal ghosting at normal settings* (later). Very stable metal stand. Super accurate colors compared to my old TN panel. The curve looks amazing after a bit of tweaking. I can't go back to a flat monitor. It can be SUPER bright. I personally only keep mine at 20% but holy moth it can get light. The free sync is absolutely amazing, love it so much. Very easy to assemble and comes with a DisplayPort cable! (off) in overdrive in panel settings…

Not bad but I always read reviews.

It does everything it says on the tin and it's usually on sale. The only thing to believe is that a lot of the reviews said they had dead pixels, and I definitely have a few that didn't show up until a week or two later.

144Hz refresh rate in my review

Guys this monitor is amazing. You literally plug it in, plug an HDMI cable into your graphics card and away you go. When you turn off the computer, the monitor turns itself off. You turn on the computer, the monitor turns on.

Broke after 8 months

I bought this monitor in January and everything was perfect about a week ago. But suddenly some horizontal pixel deaths started on the monitor and the screen kept flickering. I have contacted Acer and will update this review when they become available.

Ideal for a budget build or a multi-monitor setup.

TLDR, that was a great value. For a monitor of this size, I feel like the curve is more of a gimmick than an added feature, but I have to admit that it adds an aesthetic quality that might just be what you need for your next build. Image quality, resolution, and refresh rate are as advertised, but Acer isn't known for faulty products.

Good price for this monitor

I bought this monitor because my last one broke out of nowhere. I was expecting the same issue to return with this monitor, but it exceeded my expectations. It has a very good display for gaming. Although the edges are a bit thicker than my previous one, I still find it easy to ignore. No dead pixels as I've seen others complain about this. All in all a really good gaming monitor for the price.

no player - works great for 2 screen WFH

Bought to run WFH. works well. There are times when my desktop background "goes black" (probably my display driver is crashing?). A quick fix is to close all my open windows and restart. It's not often that I turn off the monitor when I'm not using it, or turn off my computer completely when I'm not using it. I think this is more a problem with my computer and its power/display than the monitor.

GREAT MONITOR! - my new rating

I love everything about this monitor. The curved screen bothered me, but it's actually perfect and its size allows me to use it as if I had two monitors. Great graphics for gaming and great for everything else!

Unprecedented gaming experience

This is my first high refresh rate monitor and I'm blown away. Colors are vibrant and the FreeSync refresh rate is stunning. I can never go back to 60Hz. A must for all AMD GPU users.

Came with dead pixels

The monitor works great, I've seen a lot of people need to tweak the settings but mine looked great from the start. Unfortunately, I had dead pixels right after unpacking. I called Revain to get a refund and was offered a partial refund instead of contacting the seller, which I accepted. The only other downside is the power button, it's very difficult to maneuver and turning the monitor off is a nightmare, but for the price you're paying it's a pretty minor issue.

Came with a few dead pixels

The monitor works great. About a day later, I noticed a few dead pixels on the upper left side of the display. Barely noticeable until you open a window with a white background. I hate returning and waiting for another one to arrive, but I'd rather go through Revain's easy return process than Acer's warranty.

Obviously you get what you pay for

Can't beat the $179 price I paid for it given the 144Hz refresh rate and VA panel. The only significant downside was the total lack of factory color calibration. Even with fine tuning, the image showed very different color fidelity. To demonstrate, I've compared this monitor on the left to a color-calibrated IPS display on the right. The difference is clearly noticeable. On the plus side: refresh rate and freesync work fantastic. Cons: Pretty poor color accuracy.
