Question Does 4 yrs old (used) Acer Predator XB271HK 4K worth it? (compare to a simple 2K Lenovo monitor like L27Q)


Nov 24, 2016
Hi, guys.

I'm living in a country where there are not many options for buying used monitors so the market isn't that various.

I just bought the new GIGABYTE G27Q 27" 2K IPS 144Hz monitor and it's stunning! I'm super satisfied with him.

I want a second monitor which will be as similar as possible to my GIGABYTE monitor but with no need for 144Hz, which means IPS, 2K, and 27 inches.
And I'm buying only used monitor cause.... budget......

So I've found a 1-year-old used Lenovo L27Q-30 65FCGAC1IS at a decent price which is IPS 2K and even 75Hz although it's not for gaming, it's nice to have.

Now I've just found a 4 years old Acer Predator XB271HK which is even 4K and I'm like why not.. and it seems to be a very premium and nice-looking monitor, but the thing is that its a 2016 monitor.

both are a similar price, which one would I go for?
the second monitor is not for gaming.. just for videos and desktop work. I basically want a nice image
