The Acer VG271 is a good 27" IPS monitor, with a 1080p resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. It has excellent low input lag and outstanding motion handling, making it a great choice for gaming. It delivers decent picture quality overall, with great peak brightness, excellent gray uniformity, and wide viewing angles. Unfortunately, like the majority of IPS monitors, it doesn't look as good in a dark room. It also has a very basic stand, with bad ergonomics, so it might be difficult to place in an ideal viewing position.

The Acer Nitro VG271 has a decent design. The stand is wide, but not very large, so you can easily place objects in front of the monitor. It supports the monitor well, but wobbles quite a bit when nudged. The bezels are thin on the sides, great for a multi-monitor setup. Finally, although it's mostly made of plastic, it has decent build quality, and there shouldn't be any issues.

Wall Mount : VESA 100x100

The back of the monitor is quite basic. There are vents along the 'v' shaped protrusion on the back, and a VESA mount can be attached directly to the back, without any spacers or adapters. There is a quick release on the stand, great for mobile professionals that need to move the monitor quickly.

Acer Nitro VG271 Build Quality picture

Although the monitor wobbles quite a bit, it has overall decent build quality. It's almost entirely made of plastic, but there is a nice finish on it, and there are no gaps in the bezel.

The Acer Nitro VG271 delivers decent picture quality overall. Like the majority of IPS monitors, it can't display deep blacks, but has great wide viewing angles. This monitor has great peak brightness and decent reflection handling, making it a great choice for a bright room with a lot of natural light. It supports HDR, but lacks most of the features necessary for a great HDR experience. It has great gray uniformity, with very little distracting dirty screen effect, and it has outstanding gradient performance.

Decent peak brightness in HDR, slightly better than the Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD. Small highlights in dark scenes stand out, but in bright scenes they aren't as bright as they should be.

For HDR to work, you have to choose the 'HDR' Picture Mode, and set the HDR setting to either 'Auto', or 'HDR400'. For the purposes of our testing, we chose the 'HDR400' setting.

Like most IPS monitors, the Acer Nitro VG271 has decent horizontal viewing angles. When viewed at wider angles, the black levels remain the same, but the brightness decreases gradually, causing the contrast ratio to decrease and the image to appear washed out. At wider angles, colors lose accuracy.

Like the majority of IPS displays, the VG271 has very good vertical viewing angles. At moderate angles, colors begin to shift. When looking at the monitor from above, the black levels remain almost constant, but from below, there is a bit more of a noticeable shift in black levels. This is only at very wide angles, though, and shouldn't cause any issues for most people.

Decent reflection handling, very similar to the LG 27UD58-B. Reflections aren't diffused very much, and can be distracting in a really bright room with a lot of lights.

9.1

Motion

Score components:

The VG271 has outstanding motion handling. It has an extremely fast response time, so motion looks great, with very little blur behind fast-moving objects. The backlight is also flicker-free, so motion is clear of distracting duplications. There is an optional black frame insertion feature, which helps clear up any remaining persistence blur. The monitor has a great 144Hz refresh rate, and it supports FreeSync, even with a recent NVIDIA graphics card.

8.9 Motion Blur
What it is: The performance of the pixel response time. Poor response time causes trails to follow moving objects. Response time is one of a few sources of motion blur.
When it matters: When there's fast movement on screen, such as during video games and sports.

Response Time Off
Response Time Normal
Response Time Extreme

The Acer VG271 has an excellent response time, but it is a bit slower than other 144Hz monitors, like the VG279Q or Acer Predator XB271HU. There is very little distracting overshoot, but transitions between dark scenes are a bit slower, which can cause more noticeable blur behind fast-moving objects.

There are three options for the response time, but there is very little difference between them. We recommend the 'Extreme' setting, as it delivers the fastest response time with almost no downsides. Unfortunately, this setting isn't available when FreeSync is enabled, resulting in a slightly slower response time. If the Over Drive setting is set to 'Extreme', when FreeSync is enabled it will automatically switch to 'Normal'.

VRR Supported Connectors : DisplayPort, HDMI

This monitor has an excellent 144Hz refresh rate, great for gaming. It also supports FreeSync, for a nearly tear-free gaming experience, over both HDMI and DisplayPort.

FreeSync also works with the latest NVIDIA drivers, as long as you have a recent 10- or 20- series NVIDIA graphics card, but for NVIDIA cards it only works over DisplayPort.

Like most monitors, FreeSync does not work if VRB (Black Frame Insertion) is enabled. When FreeSync is enabled, the 'Extreme' Over Drive setting isn't available, so the response time is a bit slower.

FreeSync is not available when either HDR or VBR (black frame insertion) are enabled.

7.6Mixed Usage
Score components:
Overall, the Acer VG271 is a good monitor for most uses. It has wide viewing angles, great peak brightness, and great uniformity. It is a very good monitor for gaming, as it has low input lag and a fast response time. Although it supports HDR, it can't get bright enough and can't display a wide color gamut, so it isn't great for HDR gaming.
Decent monitor for office usage. It has wide viewing angles and thin bezels, great for a multi-monitor setup. Although it doesn't look as good in a dark room, this monitor is a great choice for a bright room, as it has great peak brightness and decent reflection handling. The Acer Nitro VG271 has a decent amount of screen real-estate, but the 1080p resolution might disappoint some users. Unfortunately, the stand has bad ergonomics, and it can only tilt.
This is a great monitor for gaming. The fast, 144Hz refresh rate and excellent response time delivers outstanding clear motion, and it supports FreeSync, even from recent NVIDIA graphics cards. There is very little input lag, for an extremely responsive gaming experience. The 1080p resolution might be disappointing for some gamers, though.
This is a good monitor for multimedia. It has wide viewing angles and a large display, great for sharing the latest trends with some friends. It isn't as well-suited for watching movies late at night though, as it can't display deep blacks in a dark room, and it has bad black uniformity. The fast response time delivers outstanding motion, with almost no noticeable blur behind fast-moving objects.
Decent monitor for media creation. The large screen and wide viewing angles make it easier to see your work, but the relatively low native resolution might disappoint some users. The stand has bad ergonomics, and it can't swivel to share the screen with someone standing nearby.
Decent monitor for HDR gaming, mainly due to its very good gaming performance. Unfortunately, the Acer Nitro VG271 can't display a wide color gamut, and can't get bright enough for HDR content to really shine.
