Acer Predator Z35P


Acer has recently released another fantastic gaming monitor which is already available in some parts of Europe and Canada. The Acer Predator Z35P is not to be confused with the Acer Predator Z35 which is an older model of the monitor that offers 2560×1080 resolution while the Z35P model expands it to 3440×1440. Additionally, this gaming monitor features a giant 35-inch screen with a VA panel, 1800R curvature, G-Sync, and overclockable refresh rate to 120Hz. With specs as these, the Acer Predator Z35P will quickly take the throne as the best ultra-wide gaming monitor.


  • 35 Inches Screen (1800R Curved)
  • 3440×1440 Resolution (UWQHD)
  • 21:9 Aspect Ratio
  • VA Panel
  • 4ms Response Time (GTG)
  • 100Hz (120Hz Overclock)
  • Nvidia G-Sync
  • Ports: HDMI, DisplayPort, 4x USB 3.0
  • Built-in Speakers: 2x9W
  • Brightness: 300cd/m2
  • Static Contrast: 2,500:1
  • Pixel Pitch: 0.23mm


The Acer Predator Z35P ultra-wide gaming monitor features a VA panel with a superior contrast ratio, perfect 178-degree viewing angles, and vibrant colors. The panel offers 8-bit color depth and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut although if the color accuracy and consistency is what you’re after, you should consider a designer monitor with an IPS panel. With its high contrast of 2,500:1, the display provides a superior relation between the darkest and brightest colors with an accent on deep black tones.

Besides offering you an immersive and stunning gaming experience with its colossal screen size and exceptional image quality, the Acer Predator Z35P ensures smooth gameplay performance as well. It’s the first monitor to go beyond 100Hz at the 3440×1440 resolution which will along Nvidia G-Sync and the quick 4ms response time make for an otherworldly gaming experience with fluent performance. Like most of the Nvidia G-Sync monitors, the Acer Predator Z35P seems to support the ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) feature.

One thing to note is that the ULMB feature cannot be used at the same time as the G-Sync anyway, so you have to choose one or the other anyway. G-Sync allows you to synchronize the refresh rate of the Acer Predator Z35P display to the frame rate of a compatible Nvidia graphics card. This eliminates screen tearing, stuttering, and reduces input lag within the dynamic range which is in this case 30-120Hz. Overall, the smooth performance is ensured while the gigantic screen delivers a flawless image quality due to the rich pixel density of 106 pixels per inch and high-contrast VA panel.

Other features include the standard Predator series perks such as the aim-point overlays, on-screen timer, FPS counter as well as a blue light filter which eliminates the harmful blue lights and thus allows you to play for hours without straining your eyes. In addition, the Predator series monitors offer Dark Boost feature which increases visibility in the dark scenes of video games. You can also save custom gaming profiles with optimal picture settings parameters or use the pre-calibrated modes for different genres. The OSD menu also offers plenty of settings including color temperature, gamma, 6-axis color adjustment, etc.

Design & Connectivity

Te Acer Predator Z35P VA monitor features the distinguishable Predator design which consists of a matte black cabinet, dark-gray stand, and aluminum finish at the back along with some logotype red parts. However, unlike the other Predator big ultra-wide monitors such as the Acer Predator X34, this model doesn’t feature the ambient lighting gimmick. The bezel is a bit thicker than most modern monitors tend to offer, but given the screen size, it’s also less noticeable. At the top and the sides, the bezel is around 14mm thick while the bottom bezel amounts to 24mm.

The monitor offers plenty of ergonomic abilities including VESA mount with 100 x 100mm pattern, -4, 35 degrees tilt, 20 degrees swivel to the left and right, and up to 130 mm height adjustment. The connector ports include an HDMI 1.4, a DisplayPort 1.2, and four USB 3.0 ports. There are also 2x9W built-in speakers which is a welcome change to the usual 2x2W speakers that we usually see.


The Acer Predator Z35P price amounts to $1100 at the moment (May 2017). As previously mentioned, it’s already available for purchase in some parts of Canada and Europe. As we are eagerly anticipating to try this monitor, Acer hints that the Acer Predator Z35P release date in the US should be sometime by the end of the month.

The $1110 price tag is actually less than expected for a fascinating display as this one, especially after considering its gigantic size, high-contrast VA panel, stellar resolution, G-Sync, and the unprecedented 120Hz refresh rate for a monitor of this caliber. In fact, the Omen X 35 offers nearly identical features but maxes out at 100Hz, yet it is priced at a little over $1,150 at the moment – which is certain to drop after the Acer Predator Z35P release date; If it wishes to stay relevant, that is.

The other alternative to the Acer Predator Z35P G-Sync monitor would be the AOC Agon AG352UCG priced at $900. It features almost the same performance and features as the Omen X 35 including the 3440×1440 resolution, G-Sync, 35-inch VA curved panel, and 100Hz; it just doesn’t look as nice.


The Acer Predator Z35P breaks the barrier and brings the ultra-wide gaming experience at 3440×1440 to 120Hz. Until we see 1440p ultra-wide gaming monitors with 144Hz refresh rate and DisplayPort 1.4, which probably won’t happen this year, the Acer Predator Z35P display is easily the best ultra-wide gaming monitor. While some are waiting for the 4K 144Hz G-Sync HDR gaming monitors to be released, others are repulsed by their mediocre size of 27 inches (and their computer requirements for that matter) and are already feasting their eyes on the Acer Predator Z35P. Finally, we no longer have to settle for lower resolutions and refresh rates just because the screens are bigger but rather enjoy both smooth and immersive gameplay experience intact.

The Acer Predator Z35P takes the ultra-wide gaming to the next level with its overclockable refresh rate to 120Hz. Meanwhile, Nvidia G-Sync and fast 4ms response time ensure fluent performance. Additionally, the 3440×1440 resolution and the high-contrast VA panel deliver vibrant and crisp image quality.

    According to an Acer rep on the Amazon product page and description. ULMB is a feature.×1440/dp/B06ZZDYVQM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495136978&sr=8-1&keywords=Z35p

  • Thank you very much. Edited the article.

    I have the monitor, it does not have ULMB. the original Z35 (which I also owned) did have ULMB.

    Why do these companies insist on shoehorning these god awful shitty useless tinny paper speakers into their monitors as though they’re some wonderful welcomed addition to gaming, only to pass the additional cost onto the consumer? The bloody things are already ridiculously prohibitively expensive for many. If anyone feels these sound decent then they need to get their ears checked and finally make a serious upgrade from their “Beats” cans to something real.

    Does anyone want or actually make use of this cheap trashy sound? Highly unlikely as anyone with the cash to buy one of these things undoubtedly already has a few pairs of great headphones and a nice stereo set up. After all I’m not taking the damned thing camping.

    Just F’n stop already.

    If more things had ultrawide support, I’d probably go back to one. Alas, they don’t, so I won’t.

    Love it! Preach it! Aint nobody spending the amount that these monitors cost looking to use 7 watt built in speakers. In the words of Uncle Joey from Full House… CUT IT OUT!

    This monitor is simply amazing, my own review below:

    I have been using the Acer Predator Z35P for a number of
    weeks now and I love it. Some more personal feelings info on this below.


    Ultra-wide really does make sense with Windows
    productivity and supported games.

    The colours are amazing. I use Eizo IPS screen
    at work and I can’t see that much difference between this VA panel and that one
    from work. I used to have a gaming BenQ TN screen which had really poor colours
    in comparison.

    120Hz is still fast enough for competitive
    gaming unless you’re are die-hard – as long as you keep your in-game framerate
    around 120fps, the input lag is very low as well and so the screen is
    definitely gaming grade (including fast paced shooters).

    Photos and movies look amazing in ultra-wide,
    too. Prepare to upgrade to a Blu-ray drive and buy ultra-wide ratio movies.
    Heard rumours of Amazon movies and Netflix ultra-wide format streaming but
    could not find any yet. I have however streamed 4k content with cutting some of
    the screen to achieve ultra-wide. Stretching is an option, too. There are
    browser plugins for that including for YouTube content.

    Blacks are really black, never seen anything
    like this before. Awesome!

    1440p is amazing, you will not spot a pixel even
    from a close. Text and everything in Windows 10 looks so clear. Default 100%
    scale mode works for me fine.

    Curve looks nice, too.

    The external look of it is very good overall.
    Compare it with those ugly AOC screens and you will know what I mean.


    G-Sync, not sure about it. I tend to be ok with
    no sync tech enabled, tearing does no bother me much (i.e. in R6: Siege). I
    have always though that the whole idea of G-Sync was to be able to play in low
    framerates (i.e. using G-Force 1070 nVidia card) in Ultra Settings and thanks
    to the tech having a butter smooth experience. Smooth it is, but the ~70ms
    input lag introduced (rather than let’s say 27ms in perfect conditions) for
    let’s say 45fps play is not something I can easily get used to. The higher the
    framerate, the lower the lag becomes, but that seems to defeat the object.

    Price. I mean you don’t expect Porsche to cost
    around the same as Ford Focus but still close to the grand of USD/GBP is a lot
    for a computer screen.

    If you sit close up like me (~60cm from the
    screen) and have a brightness high, you may experience headaches unless you are
    insensitive to such stuff. It is a massive screen so a lot of light coming your


    Maybe the bezels could be a bit thinner? I am
    sure there was a valid design reason why those are so thick so I am somewhat fine
    with it.

    USB hub ports placement is poor, I will unlikely
    ever use those.

    I have just purchased this monitor and I must say that I am somewhat surprised to see it get such a high rating.
    To be fair contrast, response time and sharpness of details are excellent. However, there is one issue that I find quite annoying and certainly did not expect to find in this monitor:
    When you move your head the slightest to each side the colour tone of a blue coloured desktop background changes to a very large degree. The problem is made even worse by the wideness of the display such that one side of the screen is a totally different tone of blue if I move my head just 5-10 cm to each side.

    I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad laptop the total cost of which was about the same as the price for this monitor alone and the stability of colours of the laptop beat this monitor by far. When the monitor is promoted as having a viewing angle of 178 degree and is praised for its colour handling, I would not expect a single colour on screen to be this distorted by a small movement of the head. This is an issue of cheap monitors and not something I would expect in a high end product like this.
