If you prioritize a large curved screen for an immersive gaming experience, the Acer Predator X45 with its high refresh rate and excellent contrast might be the way to go. It's also significantly less expensive. But if your focus is on professional creative work like video and photo editing, the Apple Pro Display XDR's higher resolution and superior color accuracy would likely serve you better, although at a higher cost. The Pro Display is not ideal for gaming due to its lower refresh rate, whereas the Acer's lower pixels per inch and text quality might not be optimal for productivity tasks. Give Feedback

PC Mag

Chris Stobing | February 2020
"Apple's Pro Display XDR provides exceptional color accuracy and build quality at a price that's quite competitive with those of reference-grade pro monitors. It's exquisite enough that swallowing the wildly extravagant cost of its Pro Stand is worth it."
