Also, Swift and XL2730Z use a much more aggressive AG Coating than the XB270HU. Imo, the coating of the swift was awful ( I think the XL2730Z uses a bit less aggressive one than the Swift, but still very aggressive in my eyes ).


But well, its a matter of taste. I can understand the people who hate IPS glow and BLB

All true statements. Although I was surprised at how good the TN Swift colors were when it was sitting next to the HU. It was like a 95% solution. But yes IPS glow and serious back light bleed vs poorer viewing angles are a personal choice. I play a lot of dark games and contrasting content and IPS glow renders entire sections of the display almost useless.

Hm then the XB270HU is not really good for you, if you don't get one with only a small amount of bleed.
Bu IPS Glow is only visible, if you look from the side on the screen, isn't it ?
Actually, I have no problems with IPS Glow. Only the BLB is visible ( especially in a dark room )

The colors of the 8 Bit TN Panel are good, but after I switched from Swift to XB270HU, there was a, more or less, huge difference. The IPS colors have more "pop" and look "cleaner" than on the TN.
I don't regret the change, especially because all of my swifts ( I had 4 swifts ) had vertical lines which were really distracting. And the AG Coating was horrible imo.

No, IPS glow is visible from the normal front seated viewing position.

Here are my three HU's with a solid black background:



People get IPS glow and BLB confused. It doesn't help that they usually overlap.

IPS are fine for bright images in bright rooms but that's it.

Oh I thought this is backlight bleeding.
I thought IPS Glow is just this thing, when you look from the side on the screen and black changes to "white" ( well not actually white but the black glows up like this http://prohardver.hu/dl/cnt/2014-04/107505/dell_up3214q_ips_glow.jpg )

If there would be OLED monitors with 144Hz and 1440p, many problems would be solved.

backlight bleed definitely makes IPS glow look worse, but they are separate things.

Damn, that's pretty intense. Any other monitors similar in hardware? Gsync for me isn't crucial.

If you want a cost effective setup with 3 1440p monitors and high hz while staying under $1k then this is probably the best you can get

Should hit 96hz easily, but is capable of higher.

Sometimes, I turn off the Monitor while my PC is still running ( because I have to go somewhere etc. ).
When I'm coming back, sometimes it happens that I can't turn my monitor on again.
I press the power button, the monitor boots up but it just shows blackscreen. No Acer boot logo, nothing. Even if I wait a few seconds, the blackscreen doesn't disappear.
I have to turn it off and turn it on several times and then the Acer boot logo shows up, I have to wait a few seconds til it disappears ( thats normal ) and then I can use the screen as always.

Does anyone know why this happens ?
I use the standard DP cable from Acer.
Windows 10 is set to maximum performance, no energy saving options on ( even the option, that the monitor turn off after a while of idling is set to "off" )..
Is there something broken in the monitor ? Like the mainboard ?

My monitor was already in RMA because of dead pixels and dust and they changed the LCD, but even before this issue happend ( with the old LCD, which had dead pixels and dust ). So its not a new issue after RMA, it was there since I have the monitor.
But this issue doesn't happen everytime, sometimes its working perfectly like it should.

Its really annoying when it happens frown.gif

I don't think it helps that some of these monitors blatantly glow more than others. If there's someone can't have any IPS glow at all, whatsoever, then I'm unsure why they'd touch IPS. But if they have a tolerance for a little bit, I think it's possible to buy this monitor multiple times and the IPS glow will either be above or below their tolerance. I believe it varies so wildly that you could probably convince someone that IPS technology is bad altogether if you showed them a few glow-heavy models. Wouldn't be surprised if a few people peaked in this thread, saw a few worst-case examples of IPS glow (overexposed picture and all), and then ran for the hills.
