The Acer Predator XZ350CU is a big ultra wide screen game friendly monitor that is built with gamers in mind. There are a number of features that come with this monitor that make it perfect for the game orientated buyer. First we have built in FreeSync adaptive synchronisation technology coupled with a super fast frame rate, the Acer is capable of displaying 144 frames per second. And if your graphics card can’t keep up then don’t worry, FreeSync will ensure a smooth and consistent game experience throughout!
This is a 1080p HD screen, this is a good thing when it comes to keeping the cost down, it will also mean you don’t need a top range and very expensive graphics card to get a good picture out of the monitor. However, at this size you might expect a 1440p resolution to ensure a razor sharp image. But , if you don’t want to pay the premium and don’t have the hardware to run a high res screen then the XZ350CU is a legitimate choice.
This 35″ ultra monitor is a big screen and you’ll need plenty of desk space to host it too. The curved design helps to bring the far reaches into view. Is a curved screen a must have? That is probably down to personal opinion as I have heard people saying it adds little and others claim it makes all the difference. For sure it’s a very cool and impressive look and I think it does help you take in the whole experience when playing FPS games, for example.
The Acer XZ350CU is a stunning looking monitor in my opinion, but it is obviously big! You’ll need a reasonable amount of space if you want it to sit comfortably in your office. The solid sturdy stand comes in handy to keep the 35″ steady on your desk. A slim bezel helps to keep the overall size of the monitor down.
The monitor comes with DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0, which is capable of running this monitor at 144hz, so you have the pick of cabling options. You also get a USB 3 hub which is handy for bringing these ever useful ports into reach. The monitor also has height adjustment and if you don’t fancy using the included stand, it is also VESA compliant so you can mount on the stand of your choice.
This is a monitor built for gamers so you can be assured of tear free super smooth gaming thanks to the FreeSync adaptive sync technology. Remember, you’ll need a modern compatible video card to take advantage of this, and that most likely means a mid to high end AMD card. The faster the better if you want to push this screen all the way to 144hz! 100% sRGB coverage and the VA panel means that you get a good quality image too.
