Acer America announced the new Nitro XZ2 Series monitors offering gamers smooth and immersive gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync, VESA Certified DisplayHDR 400 and up to a fast 1 ms response time with prices starting at $199.99. The series includes the 31.5-inch Nitro XZ322QU and 27-inch Nitro XZ272 supporting up to a speedy 165 Hz refresh rate and the 23.6-inch 144 Hz Nitro XZ242Q. Thanks to Visual Response Boost (VRB), they deliver up to a 1 ms response time, resulting in smoothly rendered images with less noticeable blur in fast moving scenes.

"Our newest Nitro series monitors combine speed, FreeSync and curved panels to offer fun and exciting gaming at a great value," said Ronald Lau, Acer America director - stationary computing. "The fast performance and affordable pricing make the Nitro series ideal for a wide range of gamers, particularly for first-person shooter and racing games where fluid visuals are key."
Each monitor features an anti-glare VA panel that has a viewing angle of 178 degrees. The monitors also have several modes to match what you're doing on your PC.
 
The monitors have a resolution of 1920 x 1080, meaning they focus more on smooth gameplay and performance than pumping out the highest pixel count. Each monitor features an anti-glare VA panel that has a viewing angle of 178 degrees. The monitors also have several modes to match what you're doing on your PC.
 
The Acer Nitro XZ2 Series monitors come with dual 3 W speakers and are available now at leading retailers with manufacturer's suggested retail prices starting at $449.99 for the Nitro XZ322QU, $259.99 for the Nitro XZ272 and $199.99 for the Acer Nitro XZ242Q.
 
Personally I think the prices could be a bit lower. I'm also not too crazy about the monitor stand design.

    I"m not crazy obout 1080P...it's just so yesterday and RJ is right, the prices are a little off, I think, and the stand is not something I'd want on a 30+" monitor. IDK what market they're going after here, maybe someone who just wants a bigger monitor with higher refresh rates? But those prices...

    Cannot go back to 1080p, unless you are playing a console exclusive whereby you have no choice.

    Not that interesting of a monitor for that price. Kind of shocked how many modern monitors we are seeing coming out at only 1080p also.
