Product Comparison: Acer Predator XB252Q vs Alienware AW2518H
- 240hz is insanely smooth even compared to 144hz.
- 1ms response time helps you feel in control of the game with your movements being registered faster.
- The jump from 120hz/144hz to 240hz is negligible and not worth the substantial increase in GPU power/temps when gaming.
- Extremely amazing Full HD monitor with 240Hz refresh rate.
- With one ms response this Full HD monitor make my FPS game at new level.
- If you primarily play shooters, sacrifice the extra pixels - 1080p still looks great at this pixel density and the whole package is well worth it.
- Great Full HD monitor with only 1ms response time.
- For 1080p this is probably one of the best monitors on the market.
- Coming from 60hz screens to 240hz is a big improvement. Everything is suddenly super smooth.
- Going from 60hz to 240hz. This is mind blowing. I'm actually half decent at CSGO.
Acer Predator XB252Q
- 400 nits bright looks stunning compared to my old monitor.
- This TN panel performs 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time which help me to not freak about panel technology.
- The colour accuracy of XB252Q is outstanding. Highly recommend for everyone.
- Extremely bright. It's 400 nits which make all colors extremely vibrant.
- The only downside to this monitor is the TN panel.
- Alienware has stonking colours for a TN panel - with a bit of tweaking I can't tell the difference between this and the IPS display I formerly had.
- The screen is matte which is a plus for me as I am sitting near a window and have no issues with reflections at any angle.
- Colours look great out-of-the-box but there are customisable profiles available online if you're not happy with the colour gamma.
- This TN panel provide great vibrant and rich colors.
- TN panels never have the best picture quality if you compare them to IPS panels.
- G-sync 240hz makes this monitor feel really smooth in first person shooters.
- The backlight shines through the screen at a certain angle but isn't noticeable until about 70 degrees.
- Fantastic purchase, would recommend anyone who want to play competitive.
- The XB252Q is better than all my 3 monitors when it comes down to responsiveness and gaming performance.
- Highly adjustable stand with barely any wobble.
- The mount that came with it takes up lots of room on your desk however it looks futuristic and is built really well.
- If you're looking for a monitor for the FPS competitive games then this is a good choice.
- G-sync offers great picture quality for fast movements eg across landscapes - without screen tearing.
- The stand is sturdy and provides cable management. I am very happy with build quality.

- Massive connections options gives amazing addition to quality of the monitor.
- I like that monitor has a plenty of ports, that I'll never run out of usb ports.
- I don't sure, that I'll ever use this all usb ports on the monitor.
- I'm running the monitor as an external screen on a Dual Nvidia GTX 675m laptop using the Displayport at 144hz and I totally happy with this.
- This monitor provide 2 additional audio ports, which is great as I'll will use them 100%.
- Provides me with a bunch of connections port, with a lot of extra USB ports.
