27" Acer KG271A gaming monitor benchmarks: color, brightness, price response, input and full specs review

For graphics color quality, the Acer KG271A has an excellent color depth of 8 -bit, resulting in smoother gradients and more accurate colors. To compensate for graphically demanding games, the Acer KG271A 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 KG271A has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. Acer KG271A has a total input lag of 6 ms, which is excellent among the competition. The Acer KG271A is a relatively new monitor. For the average response rate, the Acer KG271A scores 4 ms, which ensures effective synchronization with the high refresh rate. The Acer KG271A has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. The brightness of Acer KG271A is significantly better than other monitors. With the AMD FreeSync support, this monitor is compatible with both AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. The minimum response rate of Acer KG271A is 1 ms, which is eliminates ghosting effects. The monitor has a VESA mount. In terms of pixel density, the Acer KG271A has an low density of 81 pixels-per-inch, resulting in pixelated text and picture quality. The monitor has an unimpressive contrast ratio of 1000 : 1. The monitor uses a TN panel which suffers from color shifting when viewed from horizontal and vertical angles and has slightly washed colors compared to IPS and VA panels.
