Value for money
Reviewed in India on 5 September 2019
This isn't my first 144hz monitor, but this is my first 144hz IPS display. This monitor is actually a good value for money if you're looking for a high refresh rate monitor, you may find other brands like LG or benq monitors from 15k-20k but none of those are IPS. I've got one complaint with the colours, it's an IPS display it's supposed to give it good colours, my previous LG monitor produced vibrant colours and this Acer monitor produces dull colours (you're gonna notice it mostly when you play games with vibrant colours like Overwatch or fortnite).
Build quality is great, even when I jerk the desk it doesn't wobble much, the stand is sturdy but I would've liked height adjustment and 90° rotation as well.
Picture quality is decent, considering it's an entry level IPS display, I wouldn't recommend it for content creation, but for regular media like watching YouTube / Netflix or Amazon Prime it's not bad. Haven't used the HDR mode, so can't make any comments about that.
Gaming was fun, no stutters, no tearing thanks to FreeSync now that it works with Nvidia GPUs. I did have to DDU my drivers for smooth functionality, so keep that in mind. And FreeSync with Nvidia GPUs works only with display port (which is not included in the box, they have an HDMI cable though)
About the small stuff now, it's Vesa compatible if you're into that sort of stuff. The joystick works fine, but the buttons are very skinny fit my liking, wouldn't have minded a usb port and height adjust.
⭐⭐Should you upgrade to it?⭐⭐
If you have a 60hz display then definitely yes, but this is no upgrade over any other 144hz display so it would be a much better idea to spend your hard earned money elsewhere.
All in all its a decent monitor at this price point (14k-16k)
Don't buy it for over 16k, you could get the LG one which is not IPS but performs almost similar for around 15
