The Acer Predator XB252Q is a great gaming screen. Although the gamut and brightness uniformity exhibit the usual deficiencies found in TN panels, in every other respect this TFT ticks the boxes. It has the headline 240Hz refresh and G-Sync for tear-free high frame-rate gaming, plenty of adjustments for even greater improvements, and excellent colour accuracy as well.
There may only be two video inputs, but there’s a four-port USB 3.0 hub built in and presets for most regular activities. So this screen has plenty of use beyond gaming, even if this is the major reason why you would consider it.
The one major drawback, and it’s a sizeable one, is the price. At over £600, this is a very expensive 24in panel. The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG258Q is a little cheaper, and just sneaks past as our high-end gaming monitor of choice. But the Acer Predator XB252Q is still a great option for the serious gamer willing to pay top dollar for ultimate screen performance.
The Acer Predator XB252Q is available on Insight for £623.99.
