Acer's XG270HU was the first monitor we tested that brought support for AMD's FreeSync technology. That was back in 2015, and our main gripe was that it felt overpriced at $500. Well, it took some time, but the 27-inch monitor can now be had for $370 at Newegg.
That's a sale price that runs through today. Had it been priced as such to begin with, it likely would have scored higher than a 70 in our evaluation. It's a decent enough monitor overall with a 2560x1440 resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and low 1ms response time.
Other features include a pair of built-in 2W speakers, 350 nits brightness (that's about average), and connectivity that consists of an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, and two DVI ports.
Assuming the panel is the same as it was in 2015 (the specs are the same), it's a 6-bit TN screen that uses Frame Rate Control (FRC) and not a true 8-bit panel. There are definitely high quality monitors out there, though at the sale price, it's a lot more palatable. And in our experience with this particular model, it's ready to run out the box without fiddling with any of the settings.
