Acer Predator CG7 Monitor Review

With the Acer Predator CG7, you get the perfect balance between a Tv screen and a gaming screen. Some of the features that will please gamers are G-Sync ultimate, 144Hz refresh rate, and the 43-inch display with HDR 1000 certification. You get one of the best experiences, but it comes at a higher price of almost $1,500. The brightness that this display monitor has may also be too much for some people, as it helps to do testing before spending all that money.

At first sight, the AcerPredatorCG7looks like a high-definition TV, which is understandable because it has a standard resolution and the right size for such displays. Unlike before when TV screens were bigger than gaming monitors, nowadays they have similar sizes, which can be confusing to novice gamers. However, gaming displays still limit gamers with the feature options they get. In most cases, you can get the larger screen without adjustability that most gamers prefer.

Some of the modern monitors have are tiltable with changeable layout modes between portrait and landscape. The CG7 can be mounted on a TV stand, but it has limited adjustability. However, you could use a VESA mount to get more display adjustable options.

The screen has 2 HDMI 2.0 ports on the right side and another extra one. 2.0 and 3.0 USB ports are also available, together with two display port 1.4 ports. There are USB Type-C and type-A. You can get 4K functionality when you use both display ports, connecting both cables to the graphic card and another two to the screen.

The CG7 also has a feature that isn’t available on any other gaming screen. The proximity sensor automatically detects your presence in the room and turns on the monitor. Since it doesn’t differentiate who gets into the room to turn on, it may not be a good feature for everyone. The comprehensive OSD menu lets you control all the features easily, including ultra-low latency mode, light sensor for ambiance, refresh backlight, and contrast management. All these will make your gaming experience easier and less stressful.
