Acer XB270HU 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Discussion Thread - Page 302

post #3011 of 4042
I wonder if those eBay sellers (aka Silicon Lottery) who pre test and gaurantee OCing thresholds on CPUs might start binning these monitors and sell perfect samples for an up charge. That might be the way to go for some of the folks on the fence about this panel. I wonder how much they would charge for a perfect panel. What kind of market would there be?

I can't think of a way to do this without being quickly 'banned' from the retailers you get the monitors from. Not sure it could sustain itself very long at all.

Yeah, I am pretty sure if it was going to happen it would have already. The key to those types of services is timing and as soon as another 144 Hz IPS Gsync variant actually comes out demand would die quickly.

Just a heads up for those still wanting to get one through Micro-Center. Their Distribution center will be getting 50 in this week with availability either Friday, or next Monday.

I'm addicted to the samsung ultra wide monitor and have tried seven different panels so far and still to find a perfect one. The one i'm using now has only one bad pixel close to the bottom and just today i got some new dirt spot behind the panel close to the bezel on top. I'm so worried now as that tells me even if i do get a perfect monitor i can still get dirt behind the panel. redface.gif

And by the way i would pay more for a tested perfect panel. It so sucks to have to keep shipping monitors back and forth.

I'm loving this monitor. Few small questions. It seems when in full screen mode I notice a more smooth game in bf4. Is g sync only working when in full screen. Also can umlb be used in full not windowed mode?

Gsync only works in full screen

ULMB will work in window or full screen

This is so disappointing, this monitor industry. Seriously. Someone said he's only had bad experiences with varying levels of bad, and that's what it's been like for me too and I've only bought a few monitors.

I ordered this XB270HU 1.5 months ago so it better be good! biggrin.gif If it's not IDK what I'm gonna do... probably wait even more for a good 120hz+ G-Sync VA panel that's 27" and 1440p, with no defects. Would that be too much to ask for as the industry is what it is, everyone pushing products out as fast as they can and causing the quality to be [no words]. Unbelievable. In these 3 months I've followed this thread it's started to look pretty scary... BUT there ARE perfect and good panels in the mix, so that gives hope! I just wish they'd have better QC and would accept a bit less income because of that better QC.

I should get it this week if the retailer is to be believed.. http://www.jimms.fi/fi/Product/Show/109953 but I'm not sure if I can believe it anymore, having heard "We're sorry but it'll be delayed by a few more days." 5 times.

And if it's bad I guess I'll wait for that $1200 Predator Z35 that'll be coming in the Fall, since the price difference isn't that big when I already have to pay about $1050 for this one >_> so, lucky you who get it for under $700 biggrin.gif geez. Why is everything always more expensive in Europe, and even more expensive here in Finland..?

EDIT: I'm also even considering to cancel the order and just get a worse monitor and use the extra for another GTX 970 + a new mobo and PSU + mouse and keyboard. But.. picture quality for graphics work..

You need to buy it locally from a warehouse or shop (if you are within transportation distance of one) and then have them open it up in person and test it. Otherwise there's nothing you can do except play Russian Roulette frown.gif
