1.MSI

Features



OUR TAKE

The MSI Optix MPG27CQ has a great design. It’s well-built, with an all-metal stand that supports the display extremely well, with no noticeable wobble. It appears to be made with premium materials throughout. It features two RGB lighting systems: a complex light pattern along the back for bias lighting, and a strip of LEDs along the front bottom bezel.

It can be VESA mounted and has a quick release for the stand, but requires spacer screws (included) to attach the mount.

The MPG27CQ has a decent height adjustment, and a very good tilt and swivel range. It can’t rotate to a portrait orientation, but this wouldn’t make sense with a curved monitor anyway.

2.BenQ ZOWIE XL2546K

Features



OUR TAKE

The BenQ Zowie XL2546K is the company’s latest attempt at a purely pro-gamer-focused panel. The brand has been making moves in this sector for a considerable amount of time, and it clearly has the knowledge and experience to make some of the best gaming monitors around, but this addition to the Zowie line chooses to focus on one thing above all else: speed.

It’s been a mantra that’s rung out in the halls of esports venues for as long as the term, and sport has existed. Everyone knows that if you want to win games, a high refresh rate and low response time are essential keys to attaining victory, but is this enough to let this monitor reign supreme?

3.Acer Predator XB271

Features



OUR TAKE

Like the Predator 17 laptop and Predator X34 wide-screen monitor, Acer hasn’t pulled any punches on the “extreme gamer chique” stylings of the Predator xb271hu. That said, the XB1 looks right at home as a part of the Predator family, with red-accented wings that flare off the base and a sturdy, highly-configurable stand that allows the user to raise and lower the screen between 14″ of height and pivot left and right 45 degrees.

As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews (namely in our test of the Dell XPS 13), I’m a big fan of the move that many manufacturers have made in recent years toward truly “bezel-less” screens. The Predator XB1 takes this challenge on better than any other device I’ve seen thus far, and while the edges of the screen housing are still visible, they’re so slim (just 2mm across) that unless you’re actively looking for them, you’ll barely notice they’re even there.

4.Sceptre Curved 27″

Features



OUR TAKE

As a wide-screen entertainment monitor, the Sceptre C275W-1920RN packs a gorgeous 27-inch curved screen that’s a thing of beauty – even when the display itself is turned off. True to its name, the C275W-1920RN’s In-Plance Switching (IPS) panel is housed in an elegantly, thin, gently curving frame. You don’t pay a price for such slimness, though; but the monitor has meager port selection (only HDMI and VGA, no USB), and its stand only offers tilt adjustment.

This monitor’s native resolution is on the low side for its screen size (1920 x 1080), but it stands out as unspectacular pick for office work on a roomy screen. Although it can’t match the Editors’ Choice Samsung C27HG70 on picture quality, it still sports a sleek design and cost half as much.

5.Acer 23.8″ Nitro XF243Y

Features



OUR TAKE

The Acer Nitro XF243Y Pbmiiprx is an excellent budget gaming monitor. It delivers amazingly smooth and responsive gameplay due to its low input lag, fast response time, and 165Hz refresh rate. It has an IPS panel with wide viewing angles, and its excellent ergonomics include a full 360-degree swivel range, making it great for sharing content and playing co-op games.

It has both native FreeSync support and G-SYNC compatibility to reduce screen tearing. Its 24 inch screen should be big enough for most gamers, but it might feel a bit cramped for work, especially if you like having multiple windows opened side-by-side. Unfortunately, it has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks look gray, which isn’t ideal for dark rooms. Also, it can’t deliver a good HDR experience because it can’t display a wide color gamut and doesn’t get bright enough to make highlights stand out the way they should.

WRAP UP

Best Gaming Monitors for Xbox One X – Whether you’re in a dorm or simply don’t have space for a big TV, console gaming on a monitor is a great alternative. Like any technology, not all monitors are created equal, and there are very different requirements depending on your usage. Luckily, the Xbox One can take advantage of many of the recent PC gaming technologies, including FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR), and some games support a 1440p resolution, so many of the best monitors for PC gaming are also great for gaming on the Xbox One.
