Chart

LED Display Type

This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many recently released medium monitors.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other latest medium monitors, the XG270HU has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

The Acer XG270HU has a fairly bright display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other latest medium monitors. Across all the medium monitors that are a similar age to the XG270HU the display brightness range from 200 cd/m² to 800 cd/m².

Chart Edit

2560 X 1440 Graphics Resolution

The Acer XG270HU has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440. That's 78% more resolution than a 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) PC display, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all LCD screens that were released in the last year is 640 x 350 and the best is 3840 x 2160.

In October last year Devoncatt said on Amazon “I needed a 2 GB video card ( about £35) to reach its full potential not built in motherboard video” in their review however despite that they rated this PC monitor 5 stars. Kkoli said “Ii) It is not very stable/solid” although they still gave this PC monitor a rating of 80 out of 100.

One person thought the product was not strong and durable. Esymo wrote in their review this year “The stand is a little bit shaky if your desk is not too sturdy” although they gave it a score of 5 stars.

Chart Edit
