Nixeus NX-EDG27 Review

Best in Class

Several years ago, Nixeus made a huge splash into the gaming monitor market with their Nixeus NX-VUE24, a relatively inexpensive 24-inch, 1080p monitor that was one of the first monitors to feature a 30Hz-144Hz FreeSync range. The monitor did use a TN panel, so color accuracy and viewing angles weren’t as good as its VA or IPS panel competitors, but the 30Hz-144Hz FreeSync range was glorious compared to the 40Hz-144Hz or 50Hz-144Hz competitors on the market.

Earlier this year at CES 2017, Nixeus was back at it again, this time around with a the new Nixeus NX-EDG27, a 27-inch gaming monitor featuring a 1440p resolution, AHVA (IPS) display technology, a [...]

Monitor Input Lag Comparison

One of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a new gaming monitor is the latency. While monitor manufacturers advertise wonderful sounding response times such as 1ms GTG or 4ms, keep in mind that these numbers only refer to the time it takes for a pixel to change colors from grey-to-grey or from black-to-white or whatever the monitor manufacturer has decided. However, this number is not standardized among manufacturers and does not cover the latency it actually takes for the image to be processed in the monitor.

In order to solve these issues, a different method of benchmarking monitors is by input lag. Unlike measuring only the time it takes for a [...]

Nixeus EDG 27 1440p, 144Hz FreeSync Gaming Monitor Now Available

Back at CES this year, we got an exclusive look at a then prototype 1440p, 30-144Hz IPS FreeSync-enabled gaming monitor from our friends at Nixeus, now it has a name and is available for purchase today.

The all-new Nixeus EDG 27 retails for $499, making it one of the best values for a high-end gaming monitor available, and the world’s first FreeSync monitor pairing a variable refresh rate range of 30-144Hz with an IPS display and a 1440p resolution.

Acer Launches Predator Z35P Gaming Monitor: 35-inch, 3440×1440, AMVA, G-Sync

For those who enjoy the experience of massive gaming monitors, Acer is quietly launching an updated version of the Predator Z35, the Predator Z35P.

The Acer Predator Z35 is one of the most impressive monitors on the market featuring 35-inches of screen real estate, Nvidia G-Sync support, and a refresh rate of up to 200Hz; however, with a lowly resolution of just 2560×1080, it’s a bit low for 2017.

Given that the resolution is clearly lacking, Acer’s new Predator Z35P remedies this issue by equipping the monitor with a new 35-inch AMVA+ 1800R curved panel featuring a native resolution of up to 3560×1440 (21:9 aspect ratio), 2500:1 contrast [...]
