Picture Quality

The QG271 has a very good contrast based on the VA panel that delivers a high contrast ratio of 3000:1. The blacks look deep when put in a dark room and this improves the picture quality.

The peak brightness is fair, good enough for most rooms, but in a truly bright room, the QG271 is not bright enough to eliminate glare.

The Acer QG271 has a peak brightness of 300-nits and it supports 8 bits (6 bits + FRC) display bit depth with a 72% NTSC 1953 (~100% sRGB) colour gamut which is perfect for a monitor at this price range.

Based on a 178°(H)/178°(V) viewing angle. The Acer QG271 27″ monitor has a screen resolution of 1920×1080 FHD pixels with an 81 PPI screen pixel density.

When viewed from an angle, the picture does not degrade, nor do the edges blur when sitting near the screen.


The Acer QG271 is a decent VA LED monitor with outstanding gaming features including fast refresh rate and AMD FreeSync support.

The QG271 has an excellent low input lag.

This monitor supports AMD FreeSync over HDMI, for an almost tear-free gaming experience.

Design & Connectivity

The overall design of the Acer QG271 is outstanding. It has a sleek stand which supports the monitor well.

The stand is small and of the same design as the Acer VG271, Acer VG271UP.

The monitor’s back is relatively simple. There are openings on the back along the ‘v’ shaped cleft and it is possible to connect a VESA mount directly to the back without any attachments. The stand features a quick release, perfect for users who need to quickly move the display.

Acer QG271

The stand has decent ergonomics. It can not swivel, and no height adjustment. Cable management is also not available.

The Acer QG271 monitor’s borders on three sides are thin and look great in a multi-monitor setup.

This display has a good range of inputs, so there should be no problems connecting your devices. Connectivity options include HDMI, D-sub & VGA.
