My Honest Acer ED273 Abidpx Gaming Monitor Review
This monitor represents excellent value for money. Please take any bad feedback with a grain of salt. I’ll try to be as comprehensive as possible in the following evaluation without making it too lengthy for prospective customers to read.
I’ve had it for a little over a week at the time of writing this review. I checked other user reviews, and they appear to complain about things like the poor quality of the speakers. This is a monitor; most do not have any speakers. Users are encouraged to utilize their own pair of desktop speakers or headphones, which is especially important given that this monitor is advertised for gaming. The provided headphone connector on Acer ED273 Abidpx Gaming Monitor isn’t spectacular, but it’ll do for most low impedance headphones. It’s a wonderful touch that Acer might easily have skipped.
At this size, the curvature is modest and simple to get accustomed to. When mine arrived, there were no dead pixels. However, I had to perform a lot of color correction. The picture temperature was initially set to a warm preset, and even after switching to the “Normal” profile, the image shown was still a little warm. Color correcting settings for my specific monitor are available in the images supplied with this evaluation. Consider that each panel is unique, and my settings will most likely vary from what you’ll need to use for accurate color reproduction. I didn’t use a hardware calibrator, but from owning many factory calibrated displays, I’m very good at eyeballing it. Regardless, this is a VA display, and I wouldn’t advocate using it for color-sensitive tasks. The speakers are pretty terrible, but at least they’re there in case of an emergency.
The contrast of Acer ED273 Abidpx Gaming Monitor is stunning. It easily outperformed a 49″ IPS LG TV. Now I want to replace the TV since the contrast is poor in comparison to this monitor. Except in absolutely dark rooms and extremely gloomy scenarios, I did not detect much backlight leaking (black loading screens, etc). I’ve also attached a photo to demonstrate the degree of backlight bleed. The photo was shot in a VERY dark room with an exposure duration of 1 second, aperture of 1.8, and ISO of 800, so the backlight bleed effect is accentuated. In person, the effect is modest and has no negative impact on the experience.
Concerning the high refresh rate, the monitor comes with an HDMI 2.0 cable and a DP cable. There are no drivers included or required. When I connected it to my RX 580, the display was instantly identified and set to 144 Hz. I had to restart my computer for FreeSync to be detected and activated, but I haven’t encountered any other issues as of now (remember to enable FreeSync in the AMD Control Panel, then go to each game’s settings and modify the display refresh rate and maximum FPS!). The movement is buttery smooth and fluid, as one would expect from a 144 Hz display. Input latency of Acer ED273 Abidpx monitor is roughly 10-20 ms when using various DIY tools I made, which is within acceptable limits. Please accept any incorrect readings if my computation is incorrect. There was no input latency, which I thought hampered my experience. Pixel response times are as claimed, with motion blur being minor to non-existent. To keep inside the FreeSync range of 48 at 144 FPS, I capped all of my games using MSI Afterburner for system monitoring and Rivatuner for the OSD and limiting the framerate to 144.
The On Screen Display is ordinary for monitors nowadays, yet it is still considerably superior than most in this price range. The control stick was a touch stiff and difficult to push for me, but after you’ve set up your display, your involvement with it should be minimal.
Overall, it’s a fantastic display that will undoubtedly be a significant boost for many people. I wholeheartedly suggest it to anybody who hasn’t yet tried 144 Hz gaming. (Warning: you’ll grow accustomed to it soon, and even 60 FPS will seem bad.) The ONLY issue I’ve had with the monitor is that it intermittently turns on and off when I wake up the PC from sleep or turn it on. I discovered a solution by shutting off the display fully when not in use, ensuring that AutoSource is switched OFF in the monitor settings, or holding the power button to turn it off and then turning it back on when the issue occurs.
Finally, the looks of Acer ED273 Abidpx Gaming Monitor are quite pleasant and exquisite. It does not scream “GAMER!” to everyone who sees it, which may be a plus for many people (it certainly was for me). Unfortunately, Acer chose glossy plastic for the monitor’s back rather than a matte appearance, which may be a disadvantage if the monitor will not be facing a wall. The monitor stand is made of plastic with a metal base, so it is rather solid and bears the weight well with little screen movement. Unfortunately, the stand only supports backward and forward tilt, with no swivel, rotation, or height adjustment. Given the cost, this is understandable. It DOES, however, support VESA mounting systems. With a beautiful chin and a chrome Acer logo, the bezels are pleasant and small, measuring just roughly 8 millimeters from pixel to edge. A non-intrusive blue LED in the bottom right corner serves as the power indication. The screen is matte-coated, which reduces reflections and glare but reduces color accuracy and brightness somewhat.
To summarize, Acer ED273 Abidpx Gaming Monitor hits a pretty decent sweet spot in terms of performance and features vs. price. I’m thinking about getting two more since the curve is excellent and the bezels are tiny. The photos in this review were shot using an LG V20 in manual mode, with various settings to fit what was being exhibited. The broad image of the desk is to show how much space it takes up in a desk. The second function is to depict color and contrast. The third and fourth images are allusions to other sections of the review. Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were shot with the display at 50% brightness in a rather gloomy setting (backlight bleed example). I really hope this review was useful, and happy gaming!
