Default Acer Predator Z35 200Hz Gaming Monitor Review Comment Thread

Acer's Z35 is the father of all gaming monitors; it has a ridiculous 200Hz refresh rate, G-SYNC compatibility and A-MVA panel and a respectable 2560x1080 resolution.

Great review, again! Thanks.

This:

"The first and most obvious is that 2560x1080 is a downright odd resolution. If you purchase the Z35 – or any 2560x1080 monitor for that matter– expect to spend time adjusting the Field of View in games, and even tweaking .ini files in order to get all games to play ‘nice’ with it. Talk about a royal pain in the ass, especially when some titles can’t even be coaxed into compatibility."

At least my comments in the other thread weren't completely out to lunch relative to the professional reviewers!

Thanks for the review.

I just don't get the large 35" monitors at resolutions like that. I mean that is less than my 27" but then stretched out to fit a 35". Add to that what I consider an excessive 200Hz and it just doesn't make sense. I guess I will understand something like this once it is at least 3440x1440 and over the 100Hz mark natively. So close to the X34, but even with those kinds of specs we just don't have powerful enough cards to drive them properly. Frankly for now I think the sweet spot is the 27" 2560x1440 144Hz IPS panels, at least that is what I am looking towards.

I agree. It seems they are just trying to get big numbers for marketing. I don't even want a 27"...just 24-25ish 1440p and 75 Hz or so. 1440 seems to be getting ignored for marketing 4K or 1080 with high refresh.

Found a typo in the opening paragraph: "he new Predator Z35 on the other hand has a much more uses a more reasonable 35” 2560x1080 A-MVA panel." Seems a couple different thoughts blended into one.

Great review as always.

Hi,

Probably a silly question, but where is the serial number of the Z35 ?

Thanks for your help :)

On my X34 it is located under the bottom bezel, right in the middle. It might be located at the same place on the Z35. The manufacturing date should be there as well.
