Acer's 28-inch gaming monitor 'Nitro XV282KKV bmiipruzx' with 4K resolution and refresh rate of 144Hz and fully compatible with PS5

With PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, you can play games at 4K resolution and frame rates up to 120fps. However, even if the game console supports 4K / 120fps games, it is meaningless if the monitor does not support the output. The 28-inch gaming monitor 'Nitro XV282KKVbmiipruzx ' released by Acer on Friday, July 2, 2021 supports 4K resolution, has a refresh rate of 144Hz, and is equipped with

AMD FreeSync technology, which is a variable frame rate compatible technology. It is said that it is fully compatible with PlayStation 5, so I actually connected the Nitro XV282KKV bmiipruzx to the PlayStation 5 and played with it.

The box of Nitro XV282KKVbmiipruzx looks like this.

Inside is the monitor body and stand arm.

The AC adapter has an input of 100-340V / 2.34A (50Hz / 60Hz) and an output of 19.5V / 9.23A, 180.0W. The actual weight was 466g.

Stand base and USB Type-A-USB Type-B cable, DisplayPort cable, HDMI cable, power cable, USB Type-C-USB Type-C cable. The diameter of the base of the stand is about 26 cm.

Insert the stand arm into the base of the stand ...

Secure with screws from the back side.

Insert the stand arm into the slot on the back of the monitor. When the spring-loaded hook makes a clicking sound, fixing is complete.

When the monitor body is attached to the stand, it looks like this. The size of the monitor is 28 inches for the display. The weight is about 7.17kg including the stand.

The back of the monitor looks like this.

There is a button for setting operation in the lower right part on the back side. The top button is the power button.

There are two USB Type-A ports compatible with USB 3.2 at the bottom left of the back side.

I saw the port part at the bottom of the back side with the stand removed. From the left, power supply terminal, 2 HDMI 2.1 ports, 1 DisplayPort 1.4 port, 1 USB Type-C port compatible with USB 3.2, 1 USB Type-B port, 2 USB Type-A ports, 3.5mm audio output terminal Is one.

The Nitro XV282KKVbmiipruzx had a built-in output speaker and a speaker grill on the back.

At the base of the stand arm was a hook to hold the cables that connect to the monitor.

Tilt angle is 35 degrees up and 5 degrees down

Height adjustment can be adjusted within a range of up to 130 mm. The total height with the monitor raised is about 57.6 cm. The height adjustment is too smooth, and the impression that fine adjustment is a little difficult.

The pivot function is 90 degrees left and right. It can also be operated as a vertical monitor.

In order to check the image on the monitor, I connected it to

PlayStation 5 this time.

The display is an IPS liquid crystal that achieves a response speed of 1 millisecond ( GTG ). The viewing angle is as wide as 178 degrees horizontally and 178 degrees vertically, so you can see the screen firmly even if you change the angle.

In addition, there is a rotating disk with a non-slip on the back of the stand base, and the

swivel function can be changed in any direction as 360 degrees, but it is very difficult to slip because it weighs about 7 kg, and the rotation adjustment is quite done. I felt it was difficult. For those who want to adjust the angle of the monitor each time they use it, it is better to attach a monitor arm that complies with the VESA standard.

The following two pictures were taken by approaching the liquid crystal display with the screen displayed. The pixels were very fine and no missing dots were found. There is almost no appearance that the backlight is transparent even in the black part.

I tried switching the screen mode registered as default while displaying the top screen of

'Fort Knight ' that can be played in full HD (1080p) 120fps. For example, 'action' for action games looks like this

'Sports' has a darker screen. The contrast is also weak, so the impression is that the screen is quite difficult to see in bright places.

'Graphics' suitable for image display have a bright screen and a slightly clearer color.

'ECO', which is set to save power, looks like 'sports' and is dark overall.

And 'HDR' clearly has more beautiful colors and brighter screen than other screen modes. When you actually play, HDR has the best brightness and contrast, so if you play HDR compatible PlayStation 5, this 'HDR' mode is enough.

I opened the monitor menu. Image quality adjustment can adjust brightness, contrast and black boost, as well as Acer's original 'ACM' that reduces blue light and enhances the contrast ratio, HDR, 'LightSense' that detects the amount of ambient light and automatically adjusts the brightness of the display, Super You can switch on / off such as sharpness. Please note that some screen modes cannot be adjusted.

For color, gamma, color temperature, and RGB can be adjusted.

In gaming, you can also display the reaction speed, refresh rate number, turn on / off the VESA standard 'Adaptive-Sync' that supports modified frame rates with DisplayPort connection, and display the aiming point.

When you display the refresh rate number, the refresh rate number is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen like this.

At the time of writing the article, 'Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War ' is the only game that can be played on PlayStation 5 at 4K resolution and 120 fps. I played Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War to see the power of Nitro XV282KKVbmiipruzx, which is fully compatible with PlayStation 5.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Campaign Mode At the beginning of the campaign mode, the night strategy is set and you can experience the battle in the dark. There is almost no see-through of the backlight, and black is beautifully colored as black, so dark places are displayed firmly and darkly. At the same time, there is a strong difference between the blackness of the night sky and the blackness of the ground, so it is not difficult to play.

The refresh rate is displayed as '120Hz' on the monitor. The performance of PlayStation 5, which allows you to play with a clearly slimy movement even when you actually play it, and enables gaming that you can not think of as a home video game console, is brought out by Nitro XV282KKV bmiipruzx.

'Fortnite' is a game with vivid colors, but it is displayed beautifully without color unevenness.


played 'Demon's Souls ' in 'Dynamic Mode', which allows you to play at 60fps with dynamic 4K image quality.

The Nitro XV282KKVbmiipruzx has a 28-inch display, which is big enough to keep your monitor within reach. You can clearly see small details such as the sparkle of flames and the plants that grow on the walls.

Especially when I died in the dark sewage, the black color was clearly expressed, so it was impressive that the message of 'YOU DIED' came out clearly.


Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition ' enables gameplay at 120fps by enabling high frame rate mode.

I actually played it, but there was no blur in the video and I was able to play without problems. With a response speed of 1 millisecond, there were no scenes where lag would hinder play.

The Nitro XV282KKVbmiipruzx is a '4K monitor with a refresh rate of 144Hz that also supports variable frame rates', so it is compatible not only with PC games but also with high-end home video game consoles such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. A big point. Since it is 28-inch and can play 4K / 120fps compatible games, it can be installed even in a small room. In addition, since there are many input terminals and it also supports USB Type-C, it is possible to connect a home-use game machine at the same time as a PC monitor and switch the input terminal to use it properly.

The only drawback is the ease of use of the stand, which can be difficult for people who want to adjust the angle one by one. As for the input terminal on the back, the HDMI 2.1 port and DisplayPort port, which are probably the most frequently used, are completely hidden by the stand arm, so it is quite difficult to insert and remove. However, once you set it up, you rarely touch it, or if you prepare your own monitor arm, you can say that you do not have to worry about this point.

The Nitro XV282KKV bmiipruzx will be released on Friday, July 2, 2021. The price is 118,000 yen including tax.
