For the average response rate, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T scores 8 ms, which is faster than the HP 27f . For graphics color quality, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has a better color depth of 8 -bit, resulting in smoother gradients and more accurate colors. For the extremely fast frame rates, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has better maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has a higher contrast ratio of 3000 : 1. To compensate for graphically demanding games, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has better low end adaptive refresh rate of 30 Hz that can adapt to more lower frame rate drops. The Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has a VESA mount while the HP 27f does not. The HP 27f is newer than Acer Predator Z1 Z271T . The Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. Unlike Acer Predator Z1 Z271T , the HP 27f has FreeSync support which makes it compatible with both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. The minimum response rate of Acer Predator Z1 Z271T is 4 ms, which is 22 % faster than the HP 27f . The Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has NVIDIA G-Sync support only and so AMD graphics cards will not be compatible with its adaptive refresh rate. Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has lower total input lag than HP 27f .

27" Acer Predator Z1 Z271T

To compensate for graphically demanding games, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has a very good low end adaptive refresh rate of 30 Hz that can adapt to more lower frame rate drops. For the extremely fast frame rates, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. The monitor has a VESA mount. The monitor panel has good viewing angles and offers better contrast and colors than TN panels. For graphics color quality, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has an excellent color depth of 8 -bit, resulting in smoother gradients and more accurate colors. The Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has an excellent contrast ratio of 3000 : 1. In terms of pixel density, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has an low density of 81 pixels-per-inch, resulting in pixelated text and picture quality. For the average response rate, the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T scores 8 ms, which can cause motion blurring due to ineffective synchronization with the high refresh rate. Without the AMD FreeSync support, this monitor is not compatible with AMD graphics cards. The brightness of Acer Predator Z1 Z271T is lower than other monitors. It is worth noting that the Acer Predator Z1 Z271T is a relatively old monitor. Acer Predator Z1 Z271T has a total input lag of 15 ms, which is bad among the competition. The minimum response rate of Acer Predator Z1 Z271T is 4 ms, which is can cause ghosting effects.

27" HP 27f

The monitor panel has good viewing angles and offers better contrast and colors than TN panels. The HP 27f is a relatively new monitor. With the AMD FreeSync support, this monitor is compatible with both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. HP 27f has a total input lag of 17 ms, which is bad among the competition. The HP 27f has no Display Port and which is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. The brightness of HP 27f is lower than other monitors. In terms of pixel density, the HP 27f has an low density of 81 pixels-per-inch, resulting in pixelated text and picture quality. Graphically demanding games may cause frame drops outside the adative refresh rate of 48 Hz. The HP 27f has a maximum refresh rate of 75 Hz and this may be too low for the extremely fast frame rates in competitive games. The monitor does not have a VESA mount. For graphics color quality, the HP 27f has an average color depth of 6 -bit, resulting in dithered gradients and more slightly less accurate colors. The monitor has an unimpressive contrast ratio of 1000 : 1. The minimum response rate of HP 27f is 5 ms, which is can cause ghosting effects. For the average response rate, the HP 27f scores 14 ms, which can cause motion blurring due to ineffective synchronization with the high refresh rate.
