The Real Review
Summary and Video
The Acer Predator X34 simple covers all the bases for sim racing and gaming with 4ms response time, 34″ ultrawide, curved, 1440P, 100hz Overclock, adjustable stand, USB’s in the back, sleek design you would be proud to show off on your desk with it’s perfect looking picture. Use this monitor for a variety of tasks like Internet browsing, Video editing, YouTube watching, Movie watching and of course Gaming and Sim Racing with it’s curvy goodness. I even find YouTube videos are more pleasing to watch compared to my BenQ XR3501 1080P ultra wide simple because I now have a ton more pixels (4,953,600 vs 2,764,800) in comparison.
