Monitor Choice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, i'm torn between two monitors here in my country. The Acer Predator X34P for $845 or the Acer Predator XB271HU for $500. Question is, is the X34P worth $345 more?

Worth is subjective. What's worth it to some, won't be worth it to others.

I'd go with the ultrawide.

But that's just me.

I have one and I'll never go back. Most of my friends that have gotten one feel the same 🤷‍♂️

I'm worried about the Prices too. How much does it cost where you live?

Not sure. I'd pay the extra as I find the ultrawide monitors are worth it.

Thank you all guys! Ended up buying the Predator XB271HU for $500. I did some research and find that the normal price of the XB271HU in the US is $450-$500 and the X34P is $600-$700 so i did not want to overpay paying $350 more on the X34P. Thank you very much everyone!
