If high contrast and deep blacks for an immersive HDR gaming and media consumption experience are your top priorities, the Acer Predator X45 is a strong option, especially considering its slight price advantage. It has excellent brightness and color depth, making it also suitable for digital and print photo editing. However, the matte coating and response time might not be ideal for text clarity. On the other hand, the AOC AG456UCZD, while pricier, boasts superior ghosting performance, which can be crucial for competitive gaming. Neither monitor excels in productivity tasks or casual gaming, but for those prioritizing a high-quality visual experience in gaming and creative work, these monitors deliver with some consideration to your budget.
