The Acer Predator X34 is superior to the Z35 in terms of resolution and panel type. The image will always be sharper than the Z35’s HD 2560 x 1080 display and will reproduce colors very well due to its IPS panel.
However, when it comes to competitive, fast-paced gaming, the Z35 offers something better – a faster refresh rate, clocked at a maximum of 200Hz as compared to the X34’s maximum of 120Hz. A higher refresh rate translates into a better experience, as the screen gets updated 200 times per second. That is just amazing – perfect for gaming.
The X34, however, is pricier than the Z35, and rightfully so. The high definition display coupled with the IPS panel and its ability to reproduce colors so well just helps the X34 takes the cake.
Having said the Z35 is also not that bad. But if you were to listen to us, the X34 is a better value for money. If it is too expensive for your budget, you might want to consider some worthy alternatives with more or less the same specifications.
