Acer's 30-inch Predator Z301 CT monitor boasts an impressive range of features, including 1800R curvature, 2560x1800 resolution, 200Hz refresh rate, 4ms response time, 3000:1 contrast, 300-nit brightness, 100% SRGB color gamut, Tobii Eye Tracking, and NVIDIA G-sync.

Acer has released the Z301CT Predator monitor to lead its gaming display lineup. The Z301CT would already be impressive enough with its 30-inch curved display, 200Hz refresh rate, and 4ms response time—but it also packs eye-tracking technology from Tobii, and NVIDIA G-Sync support.

The 30-inch display has a resolution of 2560x1080, boasting 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles, 3000:1 contrast, 300 nits brightness, and covers 100% of the sRGB spectrum. Gamers will especially appreciate the 1800R curvature, eye-tracking, G-Sync, and 200Hz refresh rate for an immersive and smooth gaming experience.

For input, the Z301CT accepts DisplayPort v1.2 or HDMI 1.4 connections. It also has some hub functionality with four USB 3.0 ports (one upstream for connection), Audio Out, and two 3W integrated speakers. All these features come at a slightly premium price, however, with the Acer's MSRP set at US$899. It should begin shipping in February.

The Z301CT's 2560x1080 resolution, 200Hz refresh rate, and 4ms response times should make it ideal for immersive gaming. (Source: Acer)

I am a university Lecturer and researcher in English writing, but I like to keep myself busy. Between weightlifting, MMA, and SCUBA diving, one of my life-long interests has always been computers. I used Macs until about 17 years ago when I switched to PCs because of an interest in games, but I'm still interested in top quality laptops that push the design envelope.
