Acer Predator Z35P 100Hz G-Sync Monitor Review


The Acer Predator Z35P is a great, big monitor. Huge and with a nice high resolution, it makes for an ideal desktop space, while the curve really pulls you into its image.

It also has great overall image quality that is excellent for general desktop work, good for gaming and fantastic for watching video. Its 21:9 aspect ratio and high contrast in particular make it superb for watching movies.

The addition of G-Sync and a 100Hz refresh rate further bump up its gaming credentials while a nice design, practical stand and USB hub further add to its appeal.

However, for all it gets right, the Acer Z35P has two main problems. The first is that, for the same price, the Acer X34 and Asus PG348Q make for slightly more tempting options. Image quality and gaming performance is a touch better and you get even slicker-looking slim bezels. Though, to an extent this does come down to personal preference as some people just prefer the compromises of one LCD panel type to another – some people can't abide IPS glow, for instance.

Meanwhile, the AOC AG352UCG undercuts the Z35P on price just a bit too much to ignore. If it were £50 one way of the other then fair enough, but the AOC is consistently £150 cheaper.

It’s also worth remembering that any G-Sync display costs more than Freesync equivalents. There are no direct equivalents of this display but there are a few 75Hz, 34-inch, 3,440 x 1,440, IPS models for under £700.

As such, while the Z35P is definitely still worth considering, it doesn’t quite do enough to get our highest score.
