That's my opinion, and can't vote as they are both good.
I voted for the Acer but I agree with your entire post. The panel of the Acer with the build of the Swift for $999 or less would be an excellent monitor.
If you care about 3D at all the Swift wins hands down.

the acer is leading at the moment 10:1
yeah i have an TN benq and an IPS overlord here myself, but the swift is supposed to have a "premium" TN panel, so perhaps the difference wasn't that obvious...
They feel the same snappy to me without ULMB, they seem to have the same motion blur too, as far as I can tell at least. The Swift might have a tiny bit less. I am using dual desktop with them both and compared them at 144 Hz using Blur Busters moving photo test, they do look very similar.
I just tested ULMB directly using the same moving photo test, 120 Hz on the Swift and 100 Hz on the Acer. The Swift does have a bit less motion blur, both are great and have very low motion blur in ULMB but while they look the same (to me) at 144 Hz I do think the Swift is crisper during motion with ULMB. A 120 Hz flicker is better than 100 Hz too but neither bother me very much. The ULMB calibration is better on the Swift, the image looks almost exactly the same in either mode on the Swift while the Acer changes a bit when I turn on ULMB.
If TN doesn't bother you too much the Swift does have a premium TN that is noticeably better than old TNs and a much better build quality. I am an IPS snob but I was very happy with the Swift for the last six months. Glossy Overlords before that.
