If you prioritize a larger screen and top-tier contrast for immersive HDR gaming and media along with excellent color coverage for photo and video editing, the Acer Predator X45 (W-OLED) might be worth the higher price. However, for a balance between cost, performance, and features, the Acer X34V (QD-OLED) offers good gaming capabilities, great color accuracy for professional work, and a high refresh rate at a more accessible price point, though it may not match the X45 in HDR peak brightness and has a slightly smaller screen size. If cost isn't a concern and you seek the best visual experience for both work and entertainment, the X45 could be the better option. If you're looking for value without compromising too much on quality, the X34V is a solid choice. Give Feedback
