Have this. Good for this price.
Panel looks okay, some color-uniformity issues and backlight bleed.. But only minor for both.
Not good for FPS. Lot's of motion-blur/dark-level smearing.
Pretty noticeable input lag without overdrive enabled.. Only two overdrive settings, the base setting is the only usable one because the "high" setting causes some MAD inverse ghosting/light-trails.
No freesync toggle in the OSD, so it's just enabled by default.

100% compatible with Nvidia "g-sync" aka freesync enabled on Nvidia cards (only 10-series and 20 series + 16-series cards are compatible).

Any more expensive and there's no reason to consider because of what AOC has:

But if you're just using this Acer for basic non-competitive gaming and/or office tasks it will do just fine. Not being VESA-compatible sucks, but there are adapters on Amazon that enable VESA... But that adds cost.

Oh and the freesync range is 46-144hz I believe.

I have a VA panel now and actually like VA. If only there were a 4k non-curved 27 inch one. Heck, I can't even figure out a good IPS one that is 27 inches and 4k.

What's wrong with curved VA?

I'm pretty sure I have this exact monitor since 2017. Not many complaints here other than, my own mistake, not being VESA compat. The stand is pretty low to the table and not very adjustable but I do have a monitor stand to raise it to almost eye level with my other monitor.

Is this monitor worth it for the price?

Could care less for the curved aspect of it.

Need 2 monitors for work. Was debating on buying 2 of these or should look I elsewhere?

Will simply be doing office work on them

If you want to run 2 monitors it's better if they're are both identical and flat - if you're powering from a laptop you can use the laptop screen as the 3rd monitor (which I do)

nothing except curved just kind of bugs me. I have the curved Samsung oled (they made one model long ago) and I mean it's not THAT big of a deal, but still prefer not curved.

I've used this monitor for a few months before I gave it away. For some reason when using its Display Port running at 144 Hz, its power supply would get extremely hot and the monitor would shut itself off. However, when I ran it using HDMI at 120 Hz it was fine.

When I contacted Acer's customer support about this issue, they wanted me to ship it to them at my expense, which wasn't worth it imo.

Yes, they (Amazon) are putting that as delivery dates for now since they don't know upto when the lockdown will be in different states. I also got the same delivery date for a different item I bought last night.

I'm looking for a dual monitor setup for video editing. I don't think this would be the ideal judging by the other comments. I do have a question about the Dell P2217H though, someone is selling them locally in my area for cheap and was wondering if those would be decent enough to get. The pair would be $150.
