Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works? This TekSpek seeks to teach you how.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

27" Acer Predator XB271HU G-Sync Monitor, 165Hz IPS Panel, 2560x1440, 4ms, 100M:1, HDMI/DP, USB, 2x Speakers, Grey/Red is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it absolutely love it hardly any back light bleeding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance only hindered a little by price I do recommend the monitors, they have a good sized area, no dead pixels and responsiveness is great. I have two of these sat side by side in my office where I work every day. The screens perform great at 144Hz, I can't stress how good a higher refresh is enough. Once you go 144Hz it eases the strain on the eyes and I would never go back to 60Hz now. The only down side to the monitors are two things really - colour/white calibration and price. The screens are not calibrated particularly well for whites on default settings, look up a guide online if you buy one. Also with the settings exactly the same, the monitors do not look the same when sat next to each other.. A little messing with the saturation settings and gain helped sort this out a bit. The only other thing to mention is price as these are fairly expensive but that's just a choice for the consumer rather than an actual con.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning monitor! G-Sync is awesome. Worth every penny. Images are crisp, bright and impressed me out of the box. G-Sync is amazing and I'm happily running most games at 100fps+. There was a duplicate vertical row of pixels that made itself known two weeks into owning it, but a power reset saw it disappear. Love the built in hub and flexible monitor positions. If you can ignore the OTT stand design, you can't go wrong with this monitor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Known issue Good build quality, good display out of the box, but does need some tweaking from default but I have fallen prey to two issues, both of them quoted by Acer as it happens. 1) Constant loss of sound from the (rather good for what they are) inbuilt speakers. But this can be solved by turning off DTS in the menu. 2) There is a known fault, even after updating to the most recent firmware, of the screen overlapping on one side so you see a couple of mm of your screen again, and a line down the middle that distorts text and anything else. it's almost like the screen is slightly folded (if that makes sense). Contacted Acer and their response is to send it away to update the firmware but even after this it will still happen, but less so. Not a good outcome. Acer's actual response is to "Turn the screen off and on again to resolve it". Not so good when you're gaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic gaming screen What a beautiful monitor. Colours look great, fast games are excellent at 144Hz. Built-in audio is a bit weak, but adequate for my needs. No regrets at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pixel problem I have received a unit that has the well know pixel moving problem . You can just turn on and off your monitor to fix it but it is an annoyance . Otherwise very good product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality product i was nervous about buying a IPS screen having heard many horror stories but was pleasantly surprised by this screen, absolutely perfect quality no issues and the picture quality is stunning with the exception of the price i am having no regrets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money Excellent quality for the price. Great performance at 165 hrz. No blight bleed for my monitor and overall satisfied. Cant recommend enough.

Hello, I've read on some reviews of this panel that the contrast is only 1000:1, but it shows 100,000,000:1 on the description here? Just want to double check before I decide to buy or not as have read that the blacks can appear washed out and greyish...
Asked by: MallicXIII
I have has no issues with blacks being washed out at all. The only risk is that with this panel there are many known faults that only occur on some of the monitors so your mileage may vary depending which panel you get. On mine I have an issue with pixels moving from the middle to the side but it is easily solved by turning it off and on again. This is a great monitor. Just make sure when you get it you check it and if you get a duff panel return it and these panels seem to be a lottery. When you get a good one though they are the best you can buy.

Why is Scan the only company to offer these premium priced monitors, with only a 1 year warranty, when everywhere else (including the manufacture) states a 2 year warranty? This is the one thing that puts me off buying it here. 1 year warranty is ridiculous for a premium panel.
Asked by: Shane82
You still get the 2 year manufacturer warranty on top of the scan 1 year. One does not cancel out the other
