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?

HDTV 720/1080
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.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

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 4.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Monitor Bought this as a new main monitor for gaming and CAD/Graphics work. Having been used first to a 1080p ultrawide, then a 144hz ultrawide, I can safely say this monitor has been the best of the bunch. G-sync works wonders with my 1080ti also. Combined with the IPS panel, refresh rate etc this has to be among the best value 'high-end' monitors out there. Shipped with zero dead pixels, minimal backlight bleed and with classic Scan support and service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade I had no idea just how much of an improvement going from 1080p to 1440p was actually going to be, absolutely no going back to 1080p now. My main reason for buying this though was the larger screen size and G-Sync to go along with my new scan 3xs pc. I am certainly not dissapointed. In built speakers are ok if you have nothing else but adding seperate speakers is probably what most people will do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantasic Monitor, doesn't get much better. This monitor is absolutely great, so clear with a gorgeous frame, and to top it off, everything looks to smooth thanks to the incredible refresh rate. I couldn't go back to 60hz after owning one of these,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Just purchased this monitor and it is amazing. Runs all my games really well. Upgraded from a asus tn 24'' gsync monitor and what a improvement. Colours pop, great viewing angles, and no imput lag that I could see. Using a i7 8700 and 1080ti card I am very pleased. As always, great service from Scan and prompt delivery. If you can, buy it, You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality. Build quality outstanding! Recently bought this monitor to get rid of my 4k T.V that I was temporarily using. No other words to describe how good this monitor is other than outstanding! Colours are amazing! The stand is made from metal which is a very sturdy and the anodized red feet on the stand are a nice touch. G-sync is super magical, has to be seen to be understood frames are lovely and smooth with no tearing. First time using Scan and will definitely be using again, recently advised my friend to buy something from scan which he has and he had zero issues either. Must buy monitor!!! Only downside is the price is fairly high but not an issue once you see how good it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from insane Coming from a 144hz 1080p TN panel with colour banding I wasn't sure what to expect with this, as soon as I started the PC up it was so bright and colourful! set up NVidia control panel, launched a game and oh my!!! just insane, had to play around with some settings like overdrive to normal and lower the contrast, worth every penny, no colour banding, sick colours, such fluid gameplay actually runs better than the 1ms TN panel I had... impressive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gaming monitor! I have gone through an absolute tonne of gaming monitors trying to find the perfect unit. Every Ultra wide, every 144/165hz panel, you name it I've tried it. This is the best panel QC wise to date. Not a single issue. Perfect white balance, no dead pixels, no whine, And do i dare say NO back-light bleed even at 100 brightness. Absolutely flawless panel. Must have won the "IPS panel lottery" for sure. Gone through 3 PG279Q's with awful QC. Really bad bleed and a horrible yellowing on the top of the screen. Nothing with this panel. The panel is a treat to use and the colors look very nice. 165hz is just epic on FPS games (using a 1080Ti). And is so butter smooth. I prefer my 165hz for FPS over everything including ultrawides and 4k. All other RPG games I use my LG OLED, so ultra wide isn't for me. Overall I am very happy with the monitor just in time for Christmas. Thanks scan for great service and fast shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Amazing quality! It isn't well calibrated out of the box (a bit bright), but it only took 5 minutes to calibrate it correctly by following an online guide. Simply stunning visuals playing games @ 165hz!

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 found the blacks to be really black.

Does this monitor have a screen coating (ex:anti-glare)

I would like to know whether this monitor has any screen coating. Is the panel glossy?
Asked by: petapacket
Not glossy

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.

Hello, The warranty on these monitors is covered by Acer and is a 24 month warranty. Regards,
