What customers say about "Features"
Acer KG271 FHD Gaming Monitor
  • Also features 3 customisable profiles, white hard crosshair options.
  • Several levels of blue light filtering, and normal/extreme overdrive options are very awesome.
  • Picture quality and features are top notch with the lovely addition of FreeSync.
