The Acer XR341CK is a special contestant, because this curved monitor has a maximum refresh rate of 75Hz and features FreeSync. Acer equipped the monitor with lights that illuminate the desk. Mostly there for entertainment, not everyone will like it; luckily you can turn it off should you want to. The height-adjustable stand is beautifully designed, made from thing but strong metal. In case there are questions about the slender lines: yes the screen does tilt a little bit when pressed. We noticed that the finish could have been a bit better. Presumably the ones that are sold have a better finish. For a price of about 790 pounds, or 1200 dollars, we expect more either way.
The XR341CK offers DisplayPort and mini-DP, HDMI 2.0 and MHL. There is also a DisplayPort-exit present, as well as a USB 3.0 hub with four upstream-ports and an audio-jack.
The test results of this monitor are somewhat random. The colour temperature is on the high side, whereas the gamma value is a bit low. The average colour deviation is very good with 2.5 and the grayscale deviation is not bad with a solid 3.3. We did notice a visible blue cast when looking at lighter tones. The response times are fluent enough, but when paired with a non-FreeSync card do come with a huge overshoot; this is acceptable using the regular setting, in 'extreme' mode it is annoying to use. Using a FreeSync-compatible card we did not have any issues.
