  • Resolution: 3440×1440

The Acer Nitro XV 340CK is a great gaming monitor that offers smooth, responsive performance thanks to its low input lag and high refresh rate. 

It also has an optional Black Frame Insertion feature for even faster motion clarity when needed!

FreeSync support makes sure your screen tearing doesn’t get too noticeable with this model’s excellent response time capabilities; plus it works well across platforms so you can use either Nvidia G-SYNC Dishonored 2 gameplay footage or Xbox One accustomed games without any issues whatsoever ( Picture In Picture mode included). 

The wide viewing angle of 60 degrees is great for wide group viewing with friends, and the stand allows you to swivel from side to side.

Pros

  • Incredible response time so you never miss a thing.
  • The support for VRR is now available, allowing customers to build more data-driven marketing programs.
  • Excellent ergonomics and set-up options.
  • The large screen size, high resolution, and bright colors make it appealing.

Cons

  • The contrast ratio is terrible which means that the blacks on the screen are just dark gray.
  • It doesn’t have bright enough to compete with glare.

Style

  • Curved: No
  • Curve Radius: Not Curved
  • Weight (without stand):15.2 lbs (6.9 kg)
  • Weight (with stand): 20.3 lbs (9.2 kg)

The Acer Nitro XV340CK is a 34 incher that will be perfect for gamers looking to game on the go. 

It has thin borders around three sides and an extra-thick bottom bezel, but it doesn’t have any fancy frills or hardware in sight! 

The stand just consists of one metal bar mounted onto a round base so you can easily set this up wherever works best within a range from your video input device(s).

Stand

  • Width: 10.6″ (26.9 cm)
  • Depth:10.6″ (26.9 cm)

The stand has a round base that’s able to hold up the monitor without taking much room. There is minimal shaking or wobbling when you move around your desk, so it should be stable enough for any work situation!

Ergonomics 

  • Height Adjustment: 5.9″ (15.0 cm)
  • Switch Portrait/Landscape: No
  • Swivel Range: -180° to 180°
  • Tilt Range: -30° to 5°

The Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx 34 inch is designed with good ergonomics. Like the previous monitor listed here, it has a base plate that can rotate freely within its plastic enclosure without any obstructions and allow for 360 degrees swivel rotation as well! 

his particular screen doesn’t have an option of going into portrait mode due to being ultrawide format but other than this minor detail there aren’t many differences between these two monitors so check them both out today before making your purchase decision!

Back

  • Wall Mount VESA: 100×100

The Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx is a pretty standard monitor. Plain, but it has all of the features that you need and more! 

There’s no quick-release feature for mounting this thing though- so make sure to get something sturdy in place before putting anything heavy on top or against its edges because there isn’t any extra support coming from behind when mounted like other models do thanks to their centrally located StandCharging ports.

Borders

  • Borders: 0.4″ (0.9 cm)

The thin borders make it easy to view on multiple monitors.

Thickness

  • Thickness (with stand): 7.0″ (17.9 cm)
  • Thickness (without stand): 2.5″ (6.3 cm)

The screen is thin and the stand isn’t bulky.

Build Quality 

The Acer Nitro XV340CK is a 34″ gaming monitor with the good build quality. It has similar features to the more expensive, but similarly-sized XF252Q model from last year – it’s entirely plastic and doesn’t feel particularly premium when you first hold one in your hand.

 However, there are no gaps or defects that would give away any problems during construction as we’ve seen on some other models out today (LG 32MP85). 

The base plate is made mostly of metal while still retaining its sturdiness due primarily because of how firm Its hinges remain without feeling too loose after years of use. 

It has a super narrow bezel which helps make multi-monitor setups possible and we even found it easy to transport for work, college, or gaming on the go!

Contrast 

  • Native Contrast: 1,048 : 1
  • Contrast With Local Dimming: N/A

The Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx has one of the worst contrast ratios we’ve seen. As such, blacks look grayish in dark rooms and cannot hold their own against bright elements on screen like text or images with strong colors which leap out immediately due to this lackluster display quality.

Anyone who works late nights (or anytime) needs to consider what kind of equipment they need when making decisions about purchasing new gear- especially if you want something durable enough so as not to break easily after just two months.

Local Dimming 

  • Local Dimming: No
  • Backlight: Edge

The Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx 34 inch does not include a dimming feature.

SDR Peak Brightness 

  • SDR Real Scene: 247 cd/m²
  • SDR Peak 2% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Peak 10% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Peak 25% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Peak 50% Window: 251 cd/m²
  • SDR Peak 100% Window: 251 cd/m²
  • SDR Sustained 2% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Sustained 10% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Sustained 25% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Sustained 50% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR Sustained 100% Window: 250 cd/m²
  • SDR ABL: 0.000

The Acer Nitro XV340CK’s peak brightness is okay. It can handle dark to moderately lit rooms, but it won’t work well in a bright environment because of glare from reflections on windows and other sources that shine directly into your eyes when you’re looking at them head-on without any kind of louvers or anti-reflective coating applied to their surfaces.

HDR Peak Brightness 

  • HDR Real Scene: 226 cd/m²
  • HDR Peak 2% Window: 233 cd/m²
  • HDR Peak 10% Window: 234 cd/m²
  • HDR Peak 25% Window: 234 cd/m²
  • HDR Peak 50% Window: 234 cd/m²
  • HDR Peak 100% Window: 234 cd/m²
  • HDR Sustained 2% Window: 233 cd/m²
  • HDR Sustained 10% Window: 233 cd/m²
  • HDR Sustained 25% Window: 233 cd/m²
  • HDR Sustained 50% Window: 233 cd/m²
  • HDR Sustained 100% Window: 233 cd/m²
  • HDR ABL: 0.000

With an average max brightness of only 250 nits, the Acer Nitro XV340CK Pbmiipphzx 34 inch is not bright enough to properly display HDR content. 

Setting it in ‘HDR Mode’ Picture mode with Brightness set at its maximum value does little good either; I could barely tell if there were any differences between SDR and this fake forme color-tinted image!

Conclusion:

If you’re looking for a cheaper 120Hz monitor without any bells and whistles you don’t care about then this would be a good choice since its fast motion handling isn’t bad even though there’s no local dimming feature.

No serious gamer needs four inputs on their display let alone six so we don’t know why Acer put them on the front side of the screen making cable management difficult- a rather inconvenient issue if you want to run your cabling behind your back and not have to peek around your monitor to plug in your peripherals.

I hope the article was helpful.
