Like other Nitro monitors, the XV282K only provides a fairly drab case with limited marketing materials around the exterior. Inside, the user will find the monitor removed from the stand. Before the user can use the monitor, they must first build the bracket and connect the bracket to the back of the monitor via a simple clip device. No tools are required to build Nitro XV282K. The

display is well protected in the box and packaged in two layers of strong styrofoam liner to ensure it is not damaged in transit.

In the Acer Nitro XV282K box, you will find the following items:

Aside from the specifications, let's take a closer look at the structural quality, design and mechanical characteristics of this monitor. The

Acer Nitro XV282K definitely has better styling than some of the other monitors in this particular lineup. The large 27-inch display offers a near borderless design, which is emphasized by a slim two-stage border. The bottom edge is the largest of the four and the Acer logo is subtly printed in the lower left corner. In another corner, users will find an IPS "Agilesplendor" logo next to the deltaE color accuracy label. The

bracket base is designed in a round shape, which is not as stable as the "V" shape alternative. In other words, it provides a subtle design aesthetic for Nitro XV282K, not as bold as Acer's Predators series. In the center of the bottom bezel, users will find an automatic brightness sensor, which adds to the high-level sense of beauty of the display. Moving the

to the back of the monitor, we find a cylindrical bracket that provides a lot of adjustment and versatility. The stand base provides a small hook for cable management, finished in red. The rear of the mount has a two-tone beauty, which is characterized by a brushed aluminum finish on the top. The Acer logo can be seen in the upper right corner of the panel, below there are four buttons and a joystick for OSD navigation. On the other hand, users will find multiple USB ports to easily access peripherals or charging devices.

Although the Nitro name is generally applied to custom budget monitors, this is not the case with XV282K. The retail price of this monitor is approximately $ 899, which means that the build quality should reach the highest level.

First impression, this is definitely a well made monitor. That said, I am still not satisfied with the quality of the bottom bezel, it just feels very fragile and always tempts me to tear it off. But other than that, this monitor is very sturdy. The

panel itself, in addition to the ones mentioned above, feels very good, and all accessories are well done. During the robustness test, I did not feel any creaking or bending on the back of the monitor. The stand feels very sturdy and can hold the monitor firmly in place. I didn't experience any shaking during the game, even when I was actively trying to shake, which in itself was impressive.

Overall, Nitro XV282K scored very high in terms of manufacturing quality. Ashamed of that bottom baffle.

Like most modern panels, Acer Nitro XV282K has an anti-glare panel coating with a matte finish (hardness 3H). The coating does an excellent job of reducing natural and artificial light sources, but it collects a lot of fingerprints during use.

In other words, due to the immersive nature of the panel, fingerprints will not cause damage to the viewing experience. The

XV282K has a thin border of 7/8 mm at the top and 21 mm at the bottom. As we mentioned before, the bottom bezel feels very shaky, so if you plan to buy this panel, please pay attention. The

two-level frame gives the panel a sense of borderlessness, which can bring a higher sense of immersion in almost all situations.

It is as effective as the solutions of other brands.

The fashion input is a vertical cable that connects to the back of the monitor . is the most impressive One of the cool features is the HDMI 2.1 function it provides, which allows users to get 120Hz at 4K resolution from PS5 and XBOX consoles.

This monitor has a large number of inputs for your use, including 2 x HDMI 2.1, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x Thunderbolt and a full USB hub. For most users, this is pretty general. The OSD (On Screen Display) of the

Acer Nitro XV282K is very easy to use and intuitive. To navigate through various menus, Acer equipped the XV282K with a 5-way joystick and 4 additional buttons on the back of the panel.

In the OSD, users can adjust all common suspicious objects, including colors, images, and game settings. We will discuss the best OSD settings later in this article. The OSD

's design feels a bit dated, but it's by no means ugly. Once you find the configuration that best suits your needs, simply save it to one of the available configuration files.

Excellent colors and excellent image quality are the two main factors that help you create an immersive feeling when gaming. Although good color is important, display manufacturers do not always calibrate color to a specific color spectrum to be considered accurate, for example sRGB / Rec.709.

We like to test the color reproduction of each monitor to see how they perform in a scene 0 with color accuracy.

The following is the result of Acer Nitro XV282K.

As always, we immediately started testing the monitor. This is a very important factor for users who do not like to change the color settings in the OSD. The factory settings of this monitor are as follows; 100 candela brightness, warm color temperature and "low blue light" are set as standard. Maximum brightness is also disabled, and the "mode" is set to standard.

works out of the box, the color is okay, but nothing special. The white point is 6268K and the black depth is 0.10. The contrast ratio is higher than the commercially available 1000:1 (1096:1), and the gamma reading is 2.09. The average deltaE score is 1.95 and the brightness is 100 candela, which is suitable for long-term viewing.

Running the sRGB preset will produce better results, especially in the average deltaE sector. In other words, the white balance and black depth are almost the same as the factory settings. The contrast has decreased slightly and the measured value is 978: 1. Color accuracy is good, with an average of 1.03 acceptable (although not the best) for people who need color accuracy to function. The measured gamma is 2.14.

I have looked at some of the various presets available, but some of them are worth trying to determine color accuracy. The following presets are available: Action, Racing, Sports, User, Standard, ECO, Graphics, and HDR. This is pretty standard for Acer monitors, and many monitors offer the exact same tray to choose from.

That is, out of curiosity, I ran the Racing preset through the colorimeter. Unsurprisingly, it wasn't as accurate as the other settings we tested. The white point is 6291K and the depth of black is 0.25 (the worst we recorded). The contrast ratio has also been reduced significantly, to 747: 1. The average DeltaE is the most disappointing result, with an average of 3.35.

I ended up testing the user preset. Provides a good white point and a good depth of black. Contrast is good, with a gamma reading of 2.09. The average DeltaE is 2.37. From a color accuracy standpoint, this preset is very poor.

After trying various presets, I wasted no time in calibrating the panel, recording the color gamut, panel uniformity, and overall color accuracy.

We select the "User" color setting and change the RGB to 47/39/50. The

results are as follows:

After calibrating the monitor with a colorimeter, the Acer Nitro XV282K displays more accurate colors, as expected. After calibration, a perfect white balance of 6491K and a depth of black of 0.22 were recorded. Interestingly, after calibration, the XV282K only provides a contrast ratio of 537: 1, almost half of the 1000: 1 that is sold on the market. However, what is more impressive is the mean deltaE; now the average is 0.29. The maximum deltaE of 1.41 was also recorded and the gamma reading was 2.19.

In the end, while this isn't the most accurate panel we've tested, it's still good for monitors aimed at gamers rather than professional editors.

Panel Uniformity is a test we run to verify the brightness and color uniformity of the entire screen. During this test, the central square was used as the reference space. Then test all other squares to see how far it differs from the reference value.

In an ideal world, we want all the squares to be green, which means that it does not break the differential threshold, which we can set at the beginning of the test.

Note: The results will vary from panel to panel.

Carefully observe the uniformity of the panel, XV282K actually performed quite well. In terms of color and brightness uniformity, most of the panels we received were rated "pass", which was below the percentage deviation we set at the beginning of the test.

This will be a good monitor for viewing content with large blocks of color, such as football or tennis matches.

Like other displays that use IPS panels, the Acer Nitro XV282K provides a very good viewing angle. Even with a defocus angle greater than about 50 degrees, you can easily see the monitor, with very small deviations in color and brightness. This monitor can be used by multiple people,

Compared to fewer alternatives, the color gamut is wider. We also recorded a color coverage of 83.1 ° obe RGB and 86.8 ° IP3; if this is the case, place this panel at the higher end of the color gamut spectrum.

Check the physical color gamut map, you can see where the Acer Nitro XV282K exceeds the sRGB space. This is particularly noticeable in the green and red parts of the color space. Overall, from a color gamut and color accuracy perspective, this monitor exceeds the needs of most common gamers. It provides fantastic colors and a wide color gamut, bringing a pleasant immersive experience.

We completed the image quality and color accuracy test by checking the maximum brightness, minimum brightness, and 120 candlelight points on this panel. The result is as follows:

For those who want to use our calibrated color profile, they will find a link below where they can download the zip file.

color accuracy is not affected, it is time to let Acer Nitro XV282K experience a variety of different game scenes, to see how it performs in terms of pixel response, input delay and HDR content. Let's learn more!

I started with some competitive titles and looked at how the monitors are stacked from a response point of view. Before playing the game, I increased the refresh rate to 144Hz (in the GPU display settings), enabled Over Drive, and set VRB (Visual Response Enhancement) to "Normal".

So, as I said, the first game I loaded was CS: GO, which is a fast-paced shooting game where players can gain an advantage over the competition with a faster refresh rate and response time.

I started playing Deathmatch, which made me feel very positive about this panel. I just tested the Acer Nitro XV252Q, a 390 Hz 24.5-inch monitor, and the difference between the two is very small. Of course, XV252Q feels a little faster, but nothing is too obvious. The XV282K's 144Hz refresh rate is enough to keep up with the speed of many players on the server. Fast moving players are very clear, and the airbrush and slower speed alternatives provide more clarity. When I manipulated the monitor's OSD settings, I noticed that setting Over Drive to "Extreme" would cause slight overshoot. Although it doesn't completely hurt the gameplay, it is definitely compelling. Also, increasing the VRB mode to "limit" will reduce the brightness exponentially. When used with Over Drive on "Extreme", it also provides an unsettling feel to the game, which is quite unpleasant. That said, when you find the perfect balance between the two settings, the gameplay will be incredibly immersive.

After playing games like "Tomb Raider" and "Cyberpunk", my impression of this monitor increased. The 27-inch panel provides a good size for general gaming immersion and provides a connected feel that is well suited for casual and competitive gaming. I allowed high dynamic range for SOTTR and Cyber punk, but was a bit disappointed with the results. HDR400 certification is an entry-level standard and can only add limited details to bright and dark areas. If there is no local dimming, the HDR provided by this monitor is useless. Having said that, playing in 4K is indeed an experience. Of course, it may be difficult for most people to achieve the 144 frames required to get the best viewing experience from this panel, but if you can, it is really excellent.

Let us not forget HDMI 2.1 support. Console gamers have been eagerly waiting for a monitor with this input stand; well, Nitro XV282K serves you well. It allows PlayStation and Xbox users to reach 120Hz when playing in 4K. Yes, support for this feature is still limited, but it does make a difference when compared to smaller panels side-by-side.

But there are some shortcomings, not just the vibration caused by VRB and Over Drive. First of all, if you are looking for this monitor, not only will it cost $800, but you will also need a powerful PC to start up. In 4K, the requirements for AAA games are very high. In this particular format, many GPUs cannot reach more than 100 FPS, which makes the game unpleasant. Although you will be able to use variable refresh rate support, you should always achieve high FPS with a limited drop.

This is our comprehensive evaluation of the Acer Nitro XV282K, which is one of the latest 4K 144Hz monitors that the market must provide. The only question to be answered is, do we think it is worth the money?

Well, let's start from the top. Acer Nitro XV282K is a 4K gaming monitor that provides 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms GTG fast response time. It is equipped with FreeSync Premium support, HDR400 certification and a beautiful color IPS panel. For many people, this is the holy grail of display specifications, providing high-quality image clarity and the speed and responsiveness of e-sports. In addition, with HDMI 2.1 support, host gamers will eventually be able to enjoy 4K games at a refresh rate of 120Hz, which was not possible before. The

XV282K is priced at about $ 899, which puts it at the higher end of the price range. However, when you compare it to other 4K 144Hz monitors, you have to say that the XV282K is excellent value for money. Yes, it may be lacking in functionality, but it still provides a very enjoyable gaming experience in important places. If you prioritize screen clarity and smooth gameplay, you really won't be disappointed with this panel.
