Acer Predator XN253QX - Your Thoughts

Post by SwaggyFN » 10 Dec 2019, 12:38

Hi Everyone,

read pretty good reviews for this Monitor. Has as far I know the new 1.9 AUO panels.

Anybody that owns that one? Or anyone who tried this one out? How was your experience?

Share your thoughts with us.

Maybe any alternative that would be better?

Usually people make these kind of thread prior to purchasing a monitor. I think you have the whole process backwards. :lol:

Im also interested in the best 240 hz gysnc monitor. Is the XN253QX it from what you found @SwaggyFN? Did you consider any others that were cheaper? Sorry to hijack.

Omen X25F or Omen X25, Im keeping an eye on both, rumors that they have the new AU painels, same as XN253QX.

I'm using the omen x25f which is great for 240hz gsync (it's gsync compatible). I would have bought the acer xn if they sold it here.
It's a big upgrade over my old benq xl 2411z but I think that the xn would be better if you want a native gsync module and black frame insertion.
The omen x25f does have great response times and overdrive on level 3 is great. Variable refresh rate seems to be working great, motion doesn't get blurry on lower refresh rates like 144-200hz which is what I was afraid of since not every game gets 200+ fps.

Check geizals and keepa to track the prices of the gsync compatible omen 25f. It is regularly heavily discounted, it was 270 euros here in portugal a couple of weeks ago.

You can always consider the Acer Nitro XF252Q too, rtings and tftcentral both have a review on it. Slightly more input lag but pixel response is better as it is (guaranteed) the new 1.9 AUO panel. I would always get this one as you can tilt vertically.
