The X7 DT v6 is the gem in Aorus’ glittering crown of gaming laptops. It boasts bleeding edge hardware and a few unique features, all packed into a sleek aluminium wing design.

On paper, the Acer XB270HU is gold. It’s an IPS display running at 1440p resolution and 144Hz refresh rate, and even comes with G-Sync support. If you’re looking for a gaming monitor and 4K seems like overkill, then the XB270HU has the spec sheet you really want. IPS for colour accuracy and viewing angles; 1440p for good visuals without the performance requirements of 4K, and 144Hz for silky-smooth, responsive gaming. In this review, we’ll put it to the test.
The Predator XB270H is one of Acer’s first gaming monitors to support G-Sync, a new Nvidia initiative that eliminates screen tearing without locking a monitor to 60Hz (or a multiple thereof). The monitor runs at 144Hz too, ensuring that if you’ve got enough grunt in your PC, you’ll get a very smooth experience – ideal for fast-paced games like shooters. The 27-inch frame is the standard ‘large’ size nowadays, and the 1080p resolution ensures that your PC doesn’t need to be too expensive to hit that 144 fps target. The XB270H looks like a promising gaming monitor, so let’s take a closer look at how it performs.
