Acer nitro xv340ck

Larger screens are becoming increasingly popular in the gaming community, thanks to the immersive value they can bring. Although ultrawide displays were once considered slow, modern alternatives are not; many now offer high refresh rates and fast response times. In the next article, we will review a monitor that is well suited to the "fast ultra-wide" category: the Acer Nitro XV340CK. The 34-inch Acer

monitor is equipped with an impressive IPS panel, displaying all the characteristics of a high-performance gaming monitor. With a fast 144Hz refresh rate and a low 1ms response time (VRB), the XV340CK offers higher specs than many competitors. It supports FreeSync and GSync adaptive synchronization, provides wide color gamut and 1440p screen clarity, which is very suitable for gaming and productivity. It is also equipped with good color accuracy, wide color gamut and many functions, allowing you to customize the viewing experience according to your specific requirements. On the surface, this monitor seems to check all the correct boxes.

We will gradually learn about XV340CK to see how it compares with price, performance, manufacturing quality and overall price/performance ratio, and compare it with similarly priced alternatives as we proceed.

So, there is a long way to go, let's not waste time, just dive in!

Acer Nitro XV340CK is packed in a fairly basic box with some marketing materials displayed on the outside, as well as the main features and specifications of the display.

In the box, users will find that the monitor and stand are not assembled. To use the monitor, construction is required. Unfortunately, unlike other monitors of this caliber, the XV340CK does not provide tool-less clip-on mounting accessories. Instead, you must physically screw the support plate to the back of the monitor. Although this is not ideal for speed, it does provide a stronger overall build.

In the Acer Nitro XV340CK box, you will find the following items:

After setting the specifications, let us take a closer look at the structural quality, design and mechanical characteristics of this monitor.

As expected, the Acer Nitro XV340CK provides the classic "XV series" design clues we have seen on other panels in the series. The display has a slim profile, which undoubtedly increases the sense of luxury of the panel. The slim frame provides a nearly frameless design, which undoubtedly increases the overall immersion of the panel. The bottom border is the largest of the four, with the Acer logo in the middle. On the right, when the monitor is active, the user will see a small LED, which emits a blue light. The

stand base has a circular design and has good stability, although it is not as efficient as the "V" -shaped alternative. The base of the stand is also equipped with a small hook-shaped red cable management wiring system. Although not the best I've seen, it can still get the job done.

moved to the back of the screen, not many design features to discuss. Considering the size of the panel, the

bracket adopts a cylindrical design and provides good functions. The back of the panel is mostly rather unremarkable. However, it does come with some arrow-shaped carvings inspired by the game, which is definitely more inclined to gamers. The Acer logo can also be found on the back of the monitor.

Overall, XV340CK feels very balanced, providing a universal and game style that can work in both worlds. The quality of workmanship of

XV340CK is surprisingly good. I conducted a series of tests to verify the integrity of the accessories and materials used, and Nitro displays excel in all areas. Unlike other monitors in this price range, XV340CK provides a sturdy metal bracket that can be screwed to the back of the monitor to increase rigidity. The panel itself feels very well done, without squeaking or bending under pressure. The panel coating provides a matt coating that looks like 3H hardness, providing another layer of protection for the panel. The

bracket securely fixes the monitor in place, providing good balance and small swing during use. In terms of build quality, the support base provides the least resistance. It comes with a plastic cover, which doesn't feel overly protective, but it's not completely scary. The small cable management system at the bottom of the bracket also feels a bit fragile, but to be honest, this is not a big problem.

Like most modern panels, Acer Nitro XV340CK has an anti-glare panel coating with a matte finish. The efficiency of the coating is very high in lightening natural and artificial light sources. Although it won't protect

is a huge disappointment for me personally. Although other Nitro displays have chosen a simpler joystick method, this is not the case with the XV340CK. For whatever reason, they chose to use the button at the bottom of the panel for this screen; This method is not only outdated but also terrible to use.

In fact, navigating the menu via these buttons is very awkward and often pressing the wrong button can cause you to exit the menu entirely. Navigation aside, though, in the OSD you have plenty of options to choose from, including color, brightness, brightness, and game settings.

After finding the perfect settings, you can save them to one of a variety of custom configuration files.

Excellent colors and excellent image quality are the two main factors that help you create an immersive feeling when gaming. Although good colors are important, display manufacturers don't always calibrate their panel colors with colors that are considered accurate within a specific color spectrum, such as 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 Acer Nitro XV340CK output:

As usual, we first quickly tested the factory settings "out of the box"; the configuration of this monitor is; Preset `Standard`, brightness 70, Overdrive set to` Normal`, the color temperature is warm.

Out of the box, XV340CK was a bit disappointed to be honest. We measured a white point of 6952K and a rather unremarkable 0.268 depth of black. The contrast is far below my expectations, and the average DeltaE is largely inaccurate.

This monitor has an analog sRGB profile, so we tested it to see if the colors are more accurate. Strangely, they are not. We got a white point very similar to the factory, but the overall black depth is lower. The contrast is almost the same, the average deltaE actually gets worse, and the average becomes 2.54.

has other color presets to choose from, but none of them are highly accurate. Having said that, here are some observations from the presets:

Action-Colors are very similar to the standard-Excessive drive is increased to the limit, Freesync is disabled, and ultra-low latency is enabled.

Racing-Black seems to be slightly higher than the "standard" preset. The contrast is higher and the image seems to use a higher gamma.

Over Drive is reset to Extreme and ULL (ultra low latency) is enabled.

Sports: The overall brightness in this preset is reduced and black is increased. Set Over Drive to "Normal" and enable ULL.

After testing various presets, I quickly calibrated the panel to see how accurate it is.

We used the "User" preset and changed the RGB to 42/46/36. The

results are as follows:

We calibrated the monitor and performed an in-depth color test to understand color accuracy over a wider range. Unsurprisingly, the result is a huge improvement compared to the other provided presets. As you can see from the image above, the white point and black point depth are the most accurate we have tested so far. Contrast is still poor, but the average deltaE has dropped significantly to a near-perfect 0.26, the highest, respectively, 1.83. Gamma now reads 2.19.

Although this monitor is not the most accurate we have tested, it does provide good accuracy when calibrated. Out of the box, this monitor is not suitable for people who want precise color work. However, after calibration, I can easily recommend it for editing within the sRGB spectrum. The

panel uniformity is a test we ran to check the uniformity of brightness and color on the 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. To be honest, the

panel uniformity of XV340CK is a bit unexpected. As can be seen from the above figure, the color scores returned by most of the recorded quadrants are amber or red, which deviates from the color accuracy (and brightness) of the reference square. Many quadrants exceed the 10% threshold, resulting in noticeable differences in the trained eye. Having said that, there is no problem at all with playing games and watching movies. However, if you watch sports events or see programs with large blocks of color, you may be sensitive to the uniformity of this panel.

Although this monitor is equipped with an IPS panel, the viewing angle is not as good as you think. Viewing the monitor from an angle of more than 2530 degrees shows a light color shift and a significant decrease in overall brightness, making the monitor quite unsuitable for multi-person use.

It complies with the OK standard and provides 99.3% sRGB, 74.3obe RGB and 80.5° IP3 coverage.

If you look at the actual color gamut diagram, you can clearly see the color gamut scale of XV340CK. The sRGB space beyond the green and red/pink parts (shown by dashed lines). However, it lacks space in blue and orange.

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:

color accuracy is unaffected. It's time to let the Acer Nitro XV340CK experience a variety of different gaming scenarios to see how it performs in terms of pixel response, input lag, and HDR content. Let's dive right into it!

Before playing, I found the best scenario to meet my personal needs. Here are the settings:

Over Drive: Normal

FreeSync: Enable

VRR: Disable

Ultra Low Latency: Enable

Playing games on this monitor really surprised me, mainly due to other 34-inch monitors that I have tested in the past The display artifacts such as ghosting and smudging are severely affected. But when playing on XV340CK, this is not so obvious. I loaded a few of my favorite shooting games, the game experience is very good, although not optimized for these types of games. The overall gameplay is surprisingly smooth, with only a small overshoot demonstration in the fast-moving image. I tried various Over Drive settings and found that although "Extreme" showed some signs of overshoot, it was not as bad as I hoped. Only a few traces of dust can be seen, and some halos will appear when dark objects are in strong contrast with the light background.

I played some competitive games on the monitor. Although this is an immersive experience, it does not match the high-speed e-sports monitors you find on the market today. That said, we did record a low input delay of 4 milliseconds, which means that there is no physical delay displayed between the input of a command and the operation on the screen. When playing multiple titles, the display's response time seems to be quite good, with almost no ghosting throughout the process. I did notice some vague feelings when playing CS: GO, but there was no big problem. For casual gamers, this monitor is more than enough for competitive games. As you will see on the website, the 1ms rating is performed with VRB enabled. This means that without it, you will experience a response time (GTG) close to 4 milliseconds. Players of single-player games shouldn't worry too much about this, because the degree of ambiguity experienced in these types of games is minimal. However, in faster games like COD and CS: GO, competitive players may find this distracting. Also, if you decide to enable the VRB setting, remember that the brightness will be severely affected. Since this feature will make the backlight strobe, the brightness will generally decrease during this process. You must also disable FreeSync to enable this feature. If you cannot maintain a stable frame rate that matches the flash speed of the backlight, the possibility of screen breakage increases.

Playing single player games on this monitor is great. Color and image quality are important factors. The XV340CK is equipped with a 34-inch 1440p panel, which can display excellent image clarity. While this is great for an immersive experience, keep in mind that it will put more strain on your system than the 1080p variant. If your PC can handle such a resolution, then you will be very satisfied with the image quality provided by this monitor. Finally, the brightness level is a bit disappointing, with a maximum brightness of 250 nits. This causes the XV340CK to perform poorly in certain scenes or when there is sufficient glare.

This is our comprehensive evaluation of the Acer Nitro XV340CK, which is a good 34-inch 1440p monitor that is available at a very competitive price. In terms of gaming and color accuracy, the

Nitro monitor performed well in many aspects, mainly due to its fast 1440p IPS panel. The combination of a 144Hz refresh rate and a fast response time of 1 millisecond allows us to get a good gaming experience in fast and slow games. Despite the size of the XV340CK, playing competitive games is actually completely acceptable, with only limited ghosting and excess vision. In other words, this monitor is more suitable for immersive games like "Shadow of the Tomb" and "Cyberpunk". In these games, the perfect combination of large screen size and high image resolution brings impressive Deep viewing experience. Unfortunately, unlike many other 34-inch displays on the market today, the XV340CK is not equipped with a curved screen. Although this will not be a deal breaker for some people, it will certainly reduce the market demographics of the group.

In general, it is difficult to beat a monitor of this size and quality when its price is south of $600. For me, XV340CK provides excellent value-for-money services at this special price. Yes, it is not the best monitor I have seen, but it is by far the worst: it shows good quality in terms of gaming, productivity, and general use.
