Acer’s New 4K2K 28″ G-Sync Gaming Monitor Finally Available

/ 2 years ago


The newest member to the Acer family is finally available, the Acer XB280HK gaming monitor. It is the world’s first 4k2k display featuring Nvidia’s G-Sync technology that provides stunning, ultra-smooth and tear-free imagery, and the best gaming experiences.

It has a spacious 28-inch LED backlit display with a 4k2k Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). The flicker-less, low dimming and ComfyView technologies should give you one of the best gaming experiences around. After all, you’ll need a really good display to take advantage of the new powerhouse from Nvidia, the GeForce GTX 980.

When coupled with a GeForce powered PC, the G-SYNC technology synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU, effectively eliminating screen tearing and minimizing stutter and input lag. The result is a more fluent and enjoyable gameplay.


The Acer XB280HK features 170/160 degree viewing angles for optimal viewing. The ErgoStand allows the screen to tilt from -5° to 35° and the base to rotate 120° from left or right. The monitor can also be raised by up to 150 mm to give you just the right viewing angle. If that still isn’t the right setup for you, it allows for both horizontal and vertical pivot for even more viewing perspectives.

Connectivity isn’t the strongest point of this monitor as it only has one DisplayPort for the video signal. It does however have four USB 3.0 ports located at the side and bottom of the display for your keyboard, mouse and other devices.

This isn’t just a great gaming monitor, it’s also eco-friendly. The LED panel is mercury- and arsenic-free and the LED back-lighting has been reduced for lower power consumption. The plastic used is post-consumer recycled.

Priced at just £499.99 inc VAT at our friends from Overclockers UK, this might be just the monitor you need to show off what your brand new GeForce GTX 980 can do.
