Acer predator xb323u
Acer is by far one of the best-known brands in gaming monitors, bringing to the market some of the best gaming monitors we've tested recently. Its Predator series is Acer's flagship gaming monitor series, providing only custom specifications and features for the best performance.
In today's article, we'll take a closer look at the Acer Predator XB323U gaming monitor, one of the latest 32-inch 1440p monitors in the series. The XB323U is packed with all the specs you'd expect from a high-end gaming monitor at this price point; including 2560 x 1440 screen resolution, 170Hz refresh rate, and 0.5ms fast MPRT. Combine all of the above features with an impressive IPS panel that provides up to 99% of the Adobe RGB color space and a full-featured stand that provides excellent ergonomics, and you've got the best on the market. One of the 32-inch gaming monitors is planned.
As always, we will test the XB323U for color accuracy, image quality, build quality, and overall gaming performance as much as possible to compare it to similarly priced alternatives. Chapter

Acer Predator XB323U is housed in an extremely rugged case, displaying the display and its multiple functions from the outside. It's definitely worth mentioning that this monitor's box is large, mainly because it's pre-assembled.
In the box, the monitor is already attached to the stand; all you need to do is get it up and running and get it out of the styrofoam where it sits. No assembly required.
The following is a complete list of accessories included with the Acer Predator XB323U:

XB323U appeared on the desktop equipped with Acer's Predator textbook layout. The familiar stand has been seen many times before, The all-metal frame feels sturdy and very sturdy. The front of the screen adopts a nearly borderless design, and the bottom bezel has Acer Predator branding and some of the screen features: "Agilesplendor IPS + Nvidia Gsync Technology". The base of the stand is very wide. The "Y" shape is definitely on the larger side, so if you are considering this monitor, keep this in mind. Moving the
to the back of the monitor, you can find many of the design features of Predator. The first thing that catches your attention is the impressive booth, which really looks like something from the Ani movie. The back of the
mount offers more predator brands and aggressive scaly armor reminiscent of aliens. In the middle of the stand, you will find a beautiful cylinder with a mechanism for rotating the display. It has a shiny metallic style finish, but its design is made of plastic. There is a small cutout near the bottom of the bracket for cable management, which also provides some functions. 4,444 horizontal lines make up most of the back of the panel, and the Acer logo is in the upper right corner, chrome plated. Except for the bronze gray powder coating of the stent itself, there are no obvious color elements. In short, although the design of the Predator XB323U is quite simple, it still meets all the requirements and looks very high quality. Acer's
Predator series has always been very reliable in terms of the build quality of its panels. XB323U is no exception. Starting from the panel itself, it feels absolutely rock solid. Although a considerable amount of plastic is used in the design of this display, it at least does not make people feel cheap or fragile. The plastic used on the rear provides excellent support for the internal panel components, with little bending during the build quality test.
As mentioned earlier, the booth is mainly made of metal. Although this adds considerable weight to the display combination, it also provides a very stable frame for the panel. The display itself did not move during use, and other displays of this size have been troubled in the past. The plastic used for scaly armor is probably the most common on this panel, but this is purely decorative and nothing more.
At the top of the booth, users will find a practical means of transportation
8 mm (top), 9 mm (side) and 25 mm (bottom). Although this is not the thinnest we have tested, the bezel looks a bit small, mainly due to the screen’s 32-inch ratio.
As we said before, the stand of this monitor is very good, providing excellent stability and excellent aesthetics respectively. In other words, the versatility of the booth is probably what impressed me the most.
Displays of this size usually do not support versatility well, mainly because they are heavy. Fortunately, this is not the case with this monitor. It provides all the adjustments you may need, including height, tilt, rotation, and pivot adjustments, the latter being perfect for plugging in input cables. The exact media specifications of
are as follows:
2560 x 1444 can be purchased on Amazon 44 44 As you might expect, Monitor and insert vertically. The monitor input and USB hub are on the back, but there are two additional USB slots on the left side of the panel.
This monitor provides all the input you may need, and provides multiple screen inputs for users who want to use this monitor with multiple devices. The OSD
(on-screen display) is controlled by various buttons and a joystick, all of which can be found on the back of the right screen. With the joystick, navigating the OSD is very simple and intuitive. A button to exit the menu has also been added, and some quick shortcuts are provided for color, HDR, and volume presets.
In the menu, users can find all common options, including brightness, contrast, game mode, screen crosshair, color presets, overload settings, and a number of other options. , allowing you to customize this monitor to your exact requirements.
We will introduce the OSD performance change function in more detail later in the article.
Excellent colors and excellent image quality are the two main factors that help create an immersive gaming experience. In this case, it is not always considered accurate for gaming monitors to calibrate colors to some color spectrum, such as sRGB / Rec.709.
We like to test the color reproduction of each monitor to understand how they perform in accurate color scenes.
The results are as follows.
We first tested the monitor "out of the box" in the factory settings. In this case, it is set to the "standard" preset color, and the "warm" color temperature is 360 nits brightness, which is much higher than the daily use I recommend.
We did a quick test and the numbers are terrible, to say the least. Although the white point is much higher than the ideal 6500K, the black depth and contrast are what you expect (1048:1). However, what is even more disappointing is that it recorded an average deltaE of 4.15. By checking the results, you can clearly see the differences between each slide, making it a poor preset for color accuracy work. To be honest, the
1 (action) game mode doesn't really offer more. In fact, from the results, the two presets are almost equal in color accuracy. It's worth mentioning that the "out of the box" preset is much brighter. However, this is the only difference.
The `Graphics` preset feels a bit cluttered, and the results confirm this. The average deltaE of 5.06 is the worst among our test results. The white point is approximately the ideal 6500K (7035K). The contrast ratio is 1067: 1, but the depth of black is slightly higher at
(0.31). Next is user profile
, and there will be more bad results. The average deltaE of 4.17 and the white point of 7253K actually make it one of the worst profiles we've ever tested, again the RGB spectrum.
We quickly calibrated the monitor (using the user's color temperature) to verify the accuracy of the Acer Predator XB323U. For best results, we change the RGB value to 55/41/41 and run the calibration. After the
calibration, the Acer Predator has been vastly improved - almost every area shows a large bulge. We recorded a 6421K white point and an impressive 0.13 depth of black. The contrast was reduced slightly to 919: 1 and the gamma value was still at a low level of 2.11. The average DeltaE has fallen further and now provides 0.23 perfect points, resulting in a maximum deltaE of 1.17 (very good).
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 every two squares to see how different it is from the reference value.
In an ideal world, we want each square to be green, which means that it does not exceed the difference threshold; we can set it at the beginning of the test.
Note: Results will vary from panel to panel. The performance of the
Predator XB323U in this particular test was actually very poor, resulting in results that were far from uniform.
As can be seen from the figure above, most of the left and right channels show red scores (determined by color accuracy and brightness uniformity). Many inner quadrants returned positive points, but this is not a good point for this group.
It is worth mentioning that panel uniformity can vary from panel to panel, so add a little salt to get these results.
The viewing angle of this panel is very good, there is almost no color difference when looking at this monitor from a non-obvious angle. Vertical and horizontal viewing angles are the same, showing no signs of actual color shift or brightness deviation. Chapter
I want to know that this monitor offers one of the widest color gamuts that I have tested, outperforming all other gaming monitors that I have tested.
From the physical color gamut table, XB323U provides almost double the sRGB volume. This means that the coverage rates of the Adobe RGB spectrum and the IP3 spectrum of 92.8 are respectively 99.6%. Overall, I would definitely recommend purchasing a colorimeter for this monitor. Although the out-of-the-box presets are not overly accurate, the calibrated profile provides excellent color accuracy and an extremely wide color gamut.
We completed the image quality and color accuracy test by checking the maximum brightness, minimum brightness, and 120 candlelight points on this panel. The results are as follows:
For those who want to use our calibrated color profile, they will find a link below to download a zip file. The color accuracy of
is not affected. It is time to let Predator XB323U experience a variety of different game scenarios to see how it performs in terms of pixel response, input delay and HDR content. Since this is Acer's high-end gaming line, I only hope it can bring the best gaming experience. This is the result.
Before we start, we enable the maximum refresh rate (170Hz) in the display settings. We also activated variable refresh rate (Gsync), which enabled overdrive and ultra-low latency.
I started playing CS: GO. This is a fast-paced first-person shooter game. From a response point of view, it will push XB323U to the limit. I joined a deathmatch server and was immediately impressed by the smooth feel provided by the monitor. Despite the large display size and a resolution of 2560 x 1440, I was still able to maintain a constant speed of 170 frames per second in CS: GO. For comparison, I tested this monitor with 60Hz and 144Hz monitors to see if we can see any significant differences between the various refresh rates provided. From 60Hz to 170Hz is like day and night. In other words, the difference between 144Hz and 170Hz is not so obvious, and only subtle differences will be felt during the game.
What is impressive is that the 32-inch Predator provides a lot of immersion in games such as CS: GO, which is mainly due to the smoothness of the game. When various enemies attack you, keep the huge spray in the smoke very smooth, making you feel closer to the game. At these specific settings, I found almost no ghosting or smudging - when bright objects are affected by a dark background, some slight halos may appear. However, for fans, this has barely attracted attention and is in no way offensive. Removing the variable refresh rate feature and turning the overdrive to the limit caused some smudging and overshoots. Although this experience is not overly offensive, it is still obvious.
Shortly after this, we loaded up Shadow of the Tomb Raider and tested the immersive screen quality and HDR 600 certification it provided. Compared with the entry-level VESA DisplayHDR 400 standard, the mid-range high dynamic range standard provides a significant performance improvement. Playing "Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow" feels great. Both dark and bright areas benefit from the HDR 600 standard. By paying more attention to these areas, it is clear that there are now a lot of additional details available. In addition, with 16 dimming zones, the sharpness of details in those extreme contrast areas is easier to identify.
We continue to test several other games, including Battlefield V, Cyberpunk and Call of Duty, each of which provides a pleasant experience without obvious visual artifacts.
In general, from a gaming point of view, it is difficult to touch this monitor too much; to say the least, it works great.
So there you have it, our full review of the Acer Predator XB323U, one of the best 32-inch 1440p gaming monitors on the market. The only answer is whether we think the XB323U is worth it. Well it all comes down to a lot of different factors, but personally, you have to say absolutely. Acer Predator XB323U is a highly suitable monitor for gaming scenes, equipped with all the necessary functions for a monitor suitable for immersive and competitive gaming.
Although some people aren't satisfied with the combination of a 32-inch screen size and 1440p resolution, it does provide a great overall experience. The resolution doesn't put too much pressure on the GPU and still allows you to achieve high frame rates in many different games. In addition, thanks to this combination, users can also use a good desk space, perfect for work and multitasking. Playing
in SDR and HDR is a real treat, and HDR provides a great viewing experience in games that support it. Increasing the refresh rate to 170Hz also adds another layer of immersion to the theoretical school, allowing you to enter the virtual world with almost no queue or ghost image. The wide color gamut also allows you to experience certain tones that smaller monitors (in this case, most monitors) simply cannot reproduce.
So in general, although this monitor is at the higher end of the price range, it still manages to show great value for money, ticking high-end gaming performance.
