Talking Interest Check on Acer Predator XB321Hk 4K

From Interest check to become a mini review of the above monitor. Got it from NewEgg on Monday and received on Saturday.

TLDR in case you want to know i almost missed the delivery.
Spoiler!


Unboxing & First Impression.
It's a heavy monitor as compared to my soon-to-be-sold X34. The X34 is much lighter and easy to carry around (relatively).
Standard accessories are provided but because this is direct from US, the power cable cannot be used, but i have spare so it's ok. It also comes with the standard manual, displayport cable, USB 3.0 cable if you wish to use the ports and HDMI.
It's also easier to navigate the menu because the buttons are front facing with each button rectangular compared to X34, where the menu buttons are below the panel.


Pictures;



X34 meets XB321


BLB.. well what do you expect , but doesnt bother me 1 bit.


some basic testing





Videos for a sensing of how it looks like.
