Acer Nitro XV282K V3: An Affordable 4K Gaming Monitor

When it comes to affordable gaming monitors, Acer is a top contender among well-known brands. The latest addition to their lineup is the Acer Nitro XV282K V3, a 4K model with a refresh rate of 150 Hz. While there haven't been any major changes to the overall specifications, Acer has significantly reduced the MSRP, making the Nitro XV282K V3 a great bargain.


The Nitro XV282K V3 features a 28-inch IPS panel with HDR 400 support and a 1 ms GTG response time. The panel is an 8-bit panel with FRC support for 10-bit dithering, offering a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a DCI-P3 color gamut of 90 percent. It also supports AMD FreeSync Premium with a variable refresh rate (VRR) range of 48 to 150 Hz. The monitor includes one DP 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1 ports, and likely has USB inputs and outputs, although this information is not available on Acer's website. However, the previous model had a USB Type-C and Type-B input, as well as four USB-A outputs, so it is possible that these features have been carried over to the updated model. Additionally, the monitor comes with a height adjustable stand with tilt and pivot support.


With an MSRP of $429.99, the Acer Nitro XV282K V3 is expected to be one of the most affordable 4K gaming monitors on the market.
