Acer XB270HU 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Discussion Thread - Page 382

post #3811 of 4042
So, I got my XB270HU back from RMA.
No dead pixels and no dust so far.
But there's a yellowish/brownish shift in the bottom of the monitor mad.gif
Anyone else noticed this on their monitor ?
If so, is there any chance that it will fade away after a while playing with it ?
I'm asking because on my first xb270hu, I had a circle on black backgrounds ( https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BypVrDy2YBLZT1p1M3FQTklOYUU/view?usp=sharing )
It disappeared after a while... would be good if this color shift is also just a thing, which disappears after a while... would be high risk if I RMA it again I think....

Hi XB270HU owners... Thinking about becoming one of you !

How much heat does this puppy pump out ?

Yes i to have yellow glow in lower right corner. I think its normal for this monitor, above average ips glow sadly. My old ips screen have the glow at least white and not that visible. Don't think it will fade.
But I can happily say the backlight bleed is now less visible then when i got it.
Heat is no problem for me, its only slightly warm if I touch it from back. My older screen was much warmer.

Have a question for other owners what overdrive are you using, staying with normal? Because on this screen response is variable depending on the framerate if I have bellow 60fps I use extreme, for above normal.

I'm not talking about BLB or IPS Glow.
Its color shifting, like on a white background the bottom is kinda brownish/yellowish

Yes, normal works best for me smile.gif

Does g-sync help with smoothing out the mouse too ? I find games that require a controller smoother than ones that use a mouse to move look. (FPS as an example over a driving game)

I've tried different mice, expensive gaming mice, wired and all.

Its not bad, but there's a distinct difference between a mouse controlled game and a joypad controlled game (joypad typically being smoother)

Anyway i'm seriously thinking about ordering one of these.. Except its almost impossible to test drive one without buying.. So was wondering it if helped with the mouse movement being smoother.

If you can buy it from a local store with a good return policy then thats how you can test drive it. I got mine from Microcenter and took it back a week later because of really awful ips glow and bleeding too. Also just couldn't stand the look of it, for $800 it looks like a <$200 monitor.

Thread Starter 
Some bad info about ULMB in here. Given everything else equal and refresh rates sufficient enough, impulse type displays are superior to sample-and-hold displays. The only reason the latter exists is due to technical limitations implementing the former.

If one were to start a clean slate to design the "ultimate display technology", it certainly wouldn't include sample-and-hold.
