So now this gaming monitor isn’t probably cheap now is it? It comes with a $799 price tag. Which easily can one of the most expensive gaming monitors. I think the Price tag is accurate, here’s how, the cutting edge look of this beast which is framed by a svelte, glossy black bezel. If you have a very bright room it might be a problem due to reflections originating from the plastic bezel, but hey now don’t you worry the borders are so slim that it won’t be a bit of a problem. In the back it has a dull look, but still it is durable.
Since Acer’s XB280HK is the one and only currently gaming monitor with 4k G-Sync. The 3840 X 2160 makes the game look more majestic even many old games look heavenly beautiful with this. But you also need a powerful GPU to power the XB280HK at an acceptable frame-rate like a very expensive and powerful GPU.
Even through AOC G2770PQU which is less expensive gives us the equivalent color accuracy but still the 4k and G-sync combination can make our favorite games to become more lively. Even through the monitor is great you will also need High-end expensive NVIDIA graphics card to play the games in Maximum. Yes, it is all expensive, but it is worth the money also and you will be not disappointed.
Here, take a look at this:
Solid build quality
Excellent post-calibration image quality
The G – Sync enables smooth game-play
4K takes graphics to a new level
Poor monitor controls
G-Sync can cause flickering at low frame-rates
