    I been thinking to get 1 more 27' monitor with my current NEC PA272 for dual set up..mostly for productivity. While my NEC has great color and very comfortable to use for coding/web browsing...it is horrible with gaming and movie..too much blur. I'd like a 2nd monitor mainly used for movie and gaming.

    So I came across 2 monitors, Asus PG279Q and Acer XB271HK. I did some research and right now Im leaning towards Acer for 4k. While limited, there are still some 4k movies and my experience with 4k was great. I will be using Nvidia 970 so I do have G-sync support. TFTcentral gave a decent review on the monitor but I would like more user experience with it. Thanks.

    Is there someone here with the Acer XB271HK, 4K, GSYNC, 10bit IPS and can recommend it?
    Is it a good monitor? Is the lack of the HDR a real deal breaker?

    For 650 USD this monitor seems a great deal.
    Am I wrong?

    Just bought this monitor.
    I think that it's simply amazing .

    I had an Eizo 1200p before this but this monitor is so stunning.
    I calibrated the XB271HK with the i1 display pro and the colours, the white point and the ckntastc are so nice.

    Very satisfied.
