27" Acer XN253QP gaming monitor performance benchmarks: response, input and full specs review

For the extremely fast frame rates, the Acer XN253QP has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz that allows smoother gameplay. The Acer XN253QP is a relatively new monitor. Acer XN253QP has a total input lag of 12.5 ms, which is excellent among the competition. The monitor has a VESA mount. The brightness of Acer XN253QP is significantly better than other monitors. The Acer XN253QP has the Display Port and this is essential for NVIDIA cards to work with AMD FreeSync. To compensate for graphically demanding games, the Acer XN253QP has a very good low end adaptive refresh rate of 24 Hz that can adapt to more lower frame rate drops. The minimum response rate of Acer XN253QP is 1 ms, which is eliminates ghosting effects. For the average response rate, the Acer XN253QP scores 4 ms, which ensures effective synchronization with the high refresh rate. For graphics color quality, the Acer XN253QP 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. Without the AMD FreeSync support, this monitor is not compatible with AMD graphics cards. 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. In terms of pixel density, the Acer XN253QP has an low density of 81 pixels-per-inch, resulting in pixelated text and picture quality.
