This Acer ultrawide is first and foremost a 49-inch panel, giving you an awful lot of real estate to work with, as does its 32:9 aspect ratio and 1800R curve for some solid immersion. Make no mistake, if you’re after a big panel for immersive gaming, this is a respectable choice.

As well as this, its 144Hz refresh rate provides smooth output, while its double QHD resolution ensures good detail, making it a great choice for PC games especially where you’ll be able to experience all of the real estate on offer. There is also support for AMD FreeSync Premium to provide VRR support for AMD GPUs with a tear and stutter-free experience.

The curved VA panel that this Acer Nitro monitor offers also ensures some good colours and contrast, with a quoted 3000:1 ratio and 121% coverage of the sRGB space respectively. What’s more, there’s also a great port selection with everything from HDMI and DP to USB-C covered, giving you lots of connectivity options. Definitely a solid bargain for any gamers looking to upgrade their rig.
