Acer XR341CK Curved Gaming Monitor
  • All games, even older ones (Crysis 3, CoD Advanced Warefare) recognize the resolution immediately, and run at 3440x1440.

What customers say about "Features"
Acer XR341CK Curved Gaming Monitor
  • The refresh rate is butter, and productivity features are everything I wanted.
  • This is definitely the perfect monitor for me. Strikes just the right balance between gaming performance and productivity.
  • This monitor has a great set of features working for and I really loved it.
  • Freesync applies to AMD cards only (there is another version of this monitor coming for Nvidia).
  • The adaptive sync/freesync feature reports a range of 30-75, but I frequently notice tearing when my framerate is still below the maximum.
Acer XR342CK Curved Gaming Monitor
  • A fantastic picture with decent refresh rate, solid construction, and nice additional features.
  • It has some gaming features such as Freesync which will be more viable in my opinion.
  • It's got plenty of great features—no need for me to go over what's explained in the description.
  • The speakers sound good enough, especially if you crank up the bass in Windows.
  • First monitor is amazing, my problem is the freesync feature and HDR do not work at the same time.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Acer XR341CK Curved Gaming Monitor
  • I had an adequate video connection this monitor has been nothing short of terrific.
  • Remember to use BizLink connections for 70+fps. Included BizLink cord is very short.
  • I like the USB hub on the back of the monitor and the ambient light os a nice touch.
  • The built in quick-charging USB 3.0 hub is a nice perk.
  • If you have a Nvidia card, you could run it in the display port as well at 75Hz, but i believe its better to do HDMI at 60HZ.
Acer XR342CK Curved Gaming Monitor
  • HDMI (at least cable I had, not one it came with) seems to be working at 75hz, at least thats what it is showing in games.
  • On both DP and HDMI the games automatically start at 60fps.
  • Multiple hdmi inputs allow me to watch cable and/or firestick on one side of the monitor while doing work on the other half of the monitor.
  • Connecting the 2012 MacBook Pro with an HDMI cable gives you the full resolution.
  • The bad part is I often lose the audio part of the HDMI on Windows PC.
