Acer presents the Acer X27U OLED, a top-tier gaming monitor that guarantees an exceptional HDR display boasting a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. The Acer Predator X27U OLED screen, featuring the swift pixel response time typical of OLED and a 240 Hz frame rate, emerges as the perfect choice for avid gamers.
Sporting a 27-inch diagonal panel and a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, the Acer X27U OLED gaming monitor truly delivers. Thanks to its impressive 240 Hz frame rate and the rapid OLED pixels, Acer promises an astonishingly quick response time of only 0.01 milliseconds (gray to gray).
AMD FreeSync Premium enables the monitor’s frame rate to synchronize with the actual game frame rate, effectively preventing screen tearing, even when the game is running below 240 frames per second. While the Predator X27U 27 240Hz OLED supports HDR10, it lacks support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+. Moreover, it showcases an impressive 98.5 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. Acer touts a peak brightness of 1,000 nits but remains silent on the full-surface brightness for SDR applications.
Equipped with two HDMI 2.0 connections and one DisplayPort 1.4, the Acer Predator X27U OLED monitor provides convenience and versatility. Notably, it offers the option of connecting the screen to a computer via USB-C. This feature allows for seamless integration with the integrated USB hub and KVM switch, while also enabling hassle-free connection to laptops with a single cable, allowing them to charge at up to 90 watts.
Price and availability
The Acer Predator X27U OLED gaming monitor can be found on Bhphotovideo.com and Newegg.com, retailing for a recommended price of $999.99. This places it in a similar price range as the Asus ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM, which boasts a technically comparable panel and retails for approximately $1,000 on Amazon.
