The Acer Nitro XV340CK is a great ultraviolet gaming monitor. It provides a great gaming experience that feels smooth and responsive thanks to its low input lag and high refresh rate. Its great response time will make fast-moving content look crisp and it has a frameset insert feature to further increase the clarity of the motion. Freezing is supported to reduce screen tears locally and is compatible with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC. Its ultra-wide format provides plenty of screen space for multitasking and also has an image-in-picture mode that lets you display two input sources at once. Unfortunately, it’s not very bright, so visibility can be a problem in lovely rooms. Also, despite having HDR support, it cannot display a wide range of color images, resulting in an HDR experience.

Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx 34″ Gaming Monitor
Every frame is important in competitive gaming. Acer’s XV340CK gaming monitor introduces QHD (3440 x 1440) monitoring that can capture your gameplay. With AMD radio technology the frame rate of games is determined by your graphics card, not the specific refresh rate of the monitor, giving you a serious competitive edge. Also, users can enjoy a comfortable viewing experience while gaming with Flickr-less, less blurry, and comfortable display. The design saves space on your desk and lets you have multiple monitors side by side to create a one-stop non-stop large screen display.

The Acer Nitro XV340CK is a good monitor overall. Although it was originally created for gaming, it is versatile in terms of making it a good alternative for office use and media use. Its large screen provides plenty of screen real estate for multitasking and an immersive gaming experience. Unfortunately, it is not very bright, and although it supports HDR, it does not display a wide color gamut and may lack local discoloration. The Acer Nitro XV340CK has a simple and minimal design. It has a thin border on three sides with a slightly thicker bottom bezel. The stand is also simple; It has a thin metal bar attached to a round base. The Acer Nitro XV340CK has good ergonomics. Like the Acer Nitro XF252K, it has a base plate that can rotate freely in a plastic enclosure, allowing it to have a full 360-degree swivel range.
Due to its versatility, it cannot be rotated in portrait mode. The back of the monitor is fairly simple. At the bottom of the stand is a small hook that acts as a wire handle. The stand has a round base that doesn’t take up too much space. It supports the monitor well and has very little oscillation. Borders are not slim and confusing, great for multi-monitor setups. The Acer Nitro XV340CK has a decent build quality and is very similar to the Acer Nitro XF252Q. The screen is completely plastic and doesn’t feel particularly premium, but there’s no obvious gap in construction. The trunk of the stand is metal, and there is a metal plate under the plastic shell of the base.

The screen is relatively thin and the stand does not take up much space. Most IPS panels usually have an Acer Nitro XV340CK with a medium contrast ratio (1048: 1) resulting in darker shades of dark gray. Note that the contrast ratio may vary between units. The Acer Nitro XV340CK does not have the local fading properties of the PBMEPJX34. The video above is provided for reference only. The Acer Nitro XV340CK has a great refresh rate resulting in a smooth and responsive gaming experience. It has native Frisink support and G-SYNC compatibility to reduce screen tearing but it only seems to be working on the DisplayPort connection. Free sink shakes the screen and HDMI goes off and the power cycle is needed for the monitor to work again.
This is probably a bug that will be fixed in the firmware update. We’ll verify this update if it’s available. If you want an ultraviolet monitor with a higher refresh rate, check out the Samsung Odyssey G9. The Acer Nitro XV340CK has a black frame to increase speed accuracy. However, it causes duplication of motion due to the frequency of vibration. Also, like most monitors, it is not usable if VRR (variable refresh rate) is enabled. The Acer Nitro XV340CK has a great response time at a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz, resulting in faster speeds in fast-moving scenes. The best overdrive setting is ‘Normal’, which provides the best performance while keeping the minimum overshoot.
The ‘off’ setting slows down and the ‘final’ setting shows many more reasons the response time at 60hz is better. The best overdrive setting is ‘off’ because the ‘normal’ and ‘extreme’ settings create significantly more overshoots and do not improve the response time. This means that if your game moves closer to 60fps, you’ll need to change the overdrive setting. The brightness of the poor HDR peak. The Acer Nitro XV340CK may not be bright enough to highlight, so the HDR content doesn’t look very different from the SDR. We measured the brightness of the HDR peak using the ‘HDR mode’ image mode, set the brightness to the maximum, and set the HDR to ‘Auto’.
Note that there is both an ‘HDR mode’ image mode and an ‘HDR’ setting with the ‘Auto’ or ‘Off’ option. The ‘HDR mode’ image mode is not really HDR, because it only combines characters like HDR. For proper HDR support, set the HDRT to ‘Auto’. The Nitro 34″ curved display with QHD 3440 x 1440 resolution offers the sharpest picture quality & provides a perfect picture with a broader view. The zero-frame does away with the thick frames found on conventional monitors freeing up screen space so you have more to look at from edge to edge. Although the Acer Nitro XV340CK has an IPS panel, it only has a decent horizontal viewing angle.
