Monitor technology continues to improve and Acer does not hesitate to embrace any new technologies which increase computing experiences. Powerful monitors with high-definition standards and immersive 3D technologies stand out as some of the best gaming monitors.
FIRST IMPRESSION OF THE MONITOR
“The two millisecond response time of the Acer HN274H 3D Gaming Monitor is fantastic!!”The Acer HN274H 3D Gaming Monitor not only embraces 3D technology but also provides an amazing response rate and full high-definition visuals. It is impressive that a 27-inch monitor can supply full features and energy saving technology. The white LED technology employed in the HN274H consumes less energy and saves money. Certainly one of the best gaming monitors, the HN274H is also an environmentally conscious product.

PERFORMANCE WITH GAMES
The two millisecond response time of the Acer HN274H 3D Gaming Monitor is fantastic. Quick response time prevents ghosting and visual noise during fast paced game play and the best gaming monitors have low response times. Explosions and demanding visual effects will be artifact free due to the combination of the low response time and the 100 million to 1 contrast ratio.
PERFORMANCE WITH MOVIES
The best gaming monitors also serve as great movie displays. The benefits offered by the 100 million to 1 contrast ratio apply equally to gaming and movies. With a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, the 16:9 format and the 16.7 million colors the Acer HN274H 3D Gaming Monitor is capable of displaying beautiful and clean moving images.
The ranges of optimal viewing angles are a horizontal angle of 170 degrees and a vertical angle of 160 degrees. These angles and the adjustable display stand provide undistorted viewing of the screen from off-center angles.
PERFORMANCE WITH TEXT
With default settings text on the Acer HN274H 3D Gaming Monitor is clear. The 300 Nit brightness level maintained clarity between the black text and white background. Changing the native resolution will squash or stretch the text and is not recommended.
The Acer HN274H 3D Gaming Monitor looks best with the native resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hertz. Every thing I have found on this gaming monitor suggests it is ready to go straight out of the box!
