The spec sheet of the Acer Nitro KG272U reads exactly what you expect from it. It uses a VA panel — which is excellent for gamers — and offers excellent color reproduction, better contrast, and darker blacks compared to IPS panels. This 1440p monitor (2560×1440 pixels) supports refresh rates of up to 170Hz, has a 1ms response time, and offers a modest peak brightness level of 250 nits.
While this is not class-leading by any stretch of the imagination, it is not too bad for the price it retails. And lest we forget, it even comes with an anti-glare coating. Notable feature inclusions are support for AMD FreeSync, HDR10, and plenty of input options, including two HDMI ports and a single DisplayPort. Gamers on a shoestring budget may also be happy to know that this monitor comes with speakers, so you have something to work with until you save enough to buy new speakers or some headphones.
You can get this Acer Nitro KG272U monitor for as low as $169.99 at Best Buy, and we think it’s an easy recommendation at that price. Make sure you grab hold of one of these before this deal comes to an end.
