The monitor panel has good viewing angles and offers better contrast and colors than TN panels. The Acer Predator XB273K is a relatively new monitor. The monitor has a VESA mount. For graphics color quality, the Acer Predator XB273K has an excellent color depth of 8 -bit, resulting in smoother gradients and more accurate colors. The Acer Predator XB273K has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. Acer Predator XB273K has a total input lag of 13 ms, which is excellent among the competition. To compensate for graphically demanding games, the Acer Predator XB273K has a very good low end adaptive refresh rate of 24 Hz that can adapt to more lower frame rate drops. In terms of pixel density, the Acer Predator XB273K has an excellent density of 163 pixels-per-inch, resulting in sharper text and picture quality. For the extremely fast frame rates, the Acer Predator XB273K has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. The brightness of Acer Predator XB273K is lower than other monitors. For the average response rate, the Acer Predator XB273K scores 8 ms, which can cause motion blurring due to ineffective synchronization with the high refresh rate.

The minimum response rate of Acer Predator XB273K is 4 ms, which is can cause ghosting effects.
