    Acer KG281K bmiipx reviews

    KG281K bmiipx 28" 16:9 LCD Gaming Monitor is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor I've been using this at least 6 hours a day since I bought it and haven't had a single problem. This thing comes with a reticle centered on the screen for FPS games if you want and it changed my gameplay around. I'm getting more consistent hits and the 4K display is 100 times better than 1080, you have to see it to understand just how much better it is. No need to use anti-aliasing since there's rarely a need to at this resolution, which will save frames. I use a GTX 1050 Ti and honestly have stable frame rates for my games and even hit over 60 in a few. Battlefield 4 stays about 50 on high and doesn't go below 40. Halo wars I still a constant 60 on max and the only game I have that is hard to run is GR Wildlands. With anything like a 1060 and above this is the perfect monitor but with freesynce I'd recommend a Radeon card just so it's able to be used. Overall a great experience with this Monitor and with the many presets for different applications you can't go wrong with this monitor.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from PIECE O TRASH Previously had the Dell P2415Q, same price-range, got it for my editing/gaming rig. it got damaged in a move, human error not much could be done! i figured i would upgrade and get something with at least some integrated audio so i didn't have to hook up my stereo on top of my headset and have that mess of chords. I thought it a reasonable dream! it arrived and its packaging was cheap foam, got everywhere and the cats tried to have at it of course so that was quite the mess. I get it all set up mounted on its stand and plugged in.. the mount it comes with doesn't tilt, does not adjust for height so you better have a motorized desk if you want to use it. whatever! a free new paperweight i guess.. I go and attach it to my ergotron desk mount instead and turn her on... the backlight bleed is atrocious nearly making entirely useless for darker games even in darker environments and the speaker lasted, i'm not exaggerating, one day. All in all i can honestly say i've never been more disgusted in a piece of hardware, not only is it unsuitable for professional grade video/photography production but it isn't even up to snuff for recreational uses. STAY AWAY from this hot trash, the 4k and the acer name can't make up for the shortcomings, especially when there are far superior choices in the same price range. i will be returning to dell for my new station and can't be more excited
