My New Toy – Acer Nitro XV270 P 27in IPS 165Hz Monitor Review

As some of you are aware, I am half blind. Therefore I need to huge monitor for my reading and blogging needs.

Prior to today, for my blogging needs, i.e. drafting articles, editing photos and creating videos, I use an Acer Nitro 5 Ryzen 7 notebook hooked up to an external Philips 27in monitor.

I have been using the above said Philips 27″ FHD 60Hz monitor for the last couple years but I am not too happy with it.

Previously I have shared that my second son is a gaming addict and because he was awarded a scholarship from his University last year for this year’s tuition fee, I allowed him to spend part of the money on a gaming rig which cost more than RM7K which included a 32 in Curved Monitor with 144Hz QHD (3440×1440).

So I went searching for a monitor but I am not willing to spend more than RM1K on a new monitor. Therefore based on my budget, a 3440x1440p monitor is out since they all cost more than RM1K.

After doing some research here and there, I decided to get the Acer Nitro XV270 P 27″ monitor with FHD (1920x1080p) which comes with IPS panel, which is excellent. It also has 165Hz refresh rate but that depends on many factors to reach this 165Hz.

The retail price of the Acer Nitro XV270 P is RM879.
