The Nitro XV2 looks relatively unobtrusive at first glance and is almost completely black. Only a thin red circle can be seen on the stand. However, this is more stable than its thin appearance would suggest. But there is no cable bushing – too bad, the XF0 had this feature. However, the stand is much larger with this one.
The XV2 controls are located at the rear. Therefore the monitor looks very tidy and simple from the front. This impression continues at the back as well. The Nitro XV2 therefore does without a “gaming design” and special RGB lighting elements.
When switched off, the edge seems to be very thin and therefore looks optically appealing. When switched on, however, a thicker frame is revealed.
Equipment and Extras
The monitor has two HDMI ports and one DisplayPort port, a USB 3.0 hub with 4 USB ports (two on the back and two on the side), a 3.5 mm jack and built-in speakers. Compared to the XF0, the DVI and a jack connection have been omitted, but certainly not annoying for most users.
In our test, the connections worked as expected and error-free. Only the option not to be able to rotate the monitor 90° was noticed negatively.
