Acer Predator XB273K 144Hz 4K IPS Monitor – it has a fan! ReviewPosted on 2019-04-05 16:00:50 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The arrival of the all-singing, all-dancing Acer X27 came with lots of fanfare thanks to its inclusion of both a 144Hz 4K panel and a clever backlighting system that allowed it to produce truly stunning HDR pictures. The problem? Its astronomical price, around £1800. Enter the XB273K, which retains the high-resolution gaming delights of 4K at 144Hz but thanks to its use of a standard fixed backlight it demands a much more sensible price, relatively speaking. At £1200, it’s still a very expensive monitor so will need to seriously impress to justify a recommendation.
