Acer XB270HU 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Discussion Thread - Page 388

post #3871 of 4042
So decided to RMA again. frown.gif

5th time. Le sigh.

Can't tolerate all those dust spots behind the screen, and the lack of newer firmware with higher ULMB. All those dust blobs all over the screen it's crazy. It's like a 5 years old with dirty hands worked on my monitor. frown.gif

They just sent me an old XB270HU that was probably RMAed by someone else.

Where I live we have a ''lemon'' policy, that after 3 RMAs/repairs, you can ask for a refund. Let's see how it goes after 4. frown.gif

ok so i'm confused.

There's the Acer XB270HU bprz

and then there's the Acer XB270HU abprz

Newegg has one for $699 and one for $799. Though one time it says one is 1ms and IPS ? and 27" WQHD (2560 x 1440) and on the same page it says its 1920 x 1080

Sort of contradicting itself.. Is there a sku / typo error at Newegg and these two are the same thing ?

Or is one really 1ms and 1920x1080 and they've made a mistake on the very same page saying its 27" WQHD (2560 x 1440)

Here are both links.

Their naming scheme is so annoying. For the Abprz you'd have to Email newegg and tell them to get their crap together since like you say the page contradicts itself by listing "WQHD" and 1920 x 1080. It is TN though, and that bprz seems to be the original XB270HU that we all know and love and hate.

What's even more worrying, is that they have both listed as IPS.. Even on their eBay site, they have it listed as the XB270HU with 1ms and IPS, which prompted me to check their website.

Geez louise ! that's bad... Even for someone who's been researching this monitor, i nearly pulled the wrong trigger.

The 5th one I ordered had a large dust spot behind the screen and no dead/stuck pixels. I tapped it and it started to fall so I kept tapping until it fell out of view. Still returned it due to BLB. thumb.gif

Are you ordering directly from Acer? If so, don't they have some kind of service where you can pay a bit more to get a "perfect" panel or something?

I did try the ''taping'' method but it's not working since the blob is a mix of dust/tar. And Acer Texas told me they sent me that pre-production XB270HU, all across america, by mistake and to return it to them anyway... ROFL.

I'm dealing with Acer Canada. I asked them, for each RMA, to CHECK the ?$?/% monitor before sending it back, but no can't do. It's impossible for them to check a monitor before sending a brand new one to me.

Yesterday I was able to ''escalate'' to a ''senior'' employe, and she agreed that 5 RMAs is stupid and shouldn't happen. EVER. So she said someone would call me a couple of hours later to change my monitor for another model: XB271HU... yes she said they have some in stock (but they are so confused and lost, and liars, it's probably not true), or the new 34'' XB341CK.

But! No one called me back yesterday or today. I'm not surprised. Will probably have to call them every day for a couple of weeks before something happens.

Bought my first XB270HU end of june. Since then it was more often in the mail or at Acer then at my place. frown.gif

Why did you deal with Acer? and not the place you purchased it from ?

If there's so much as a speck of dust behind the screen, i'll hit Amazon up for a full refund...

There are 2 different monitors.
The XB270HU that we are discussing here.
And another monitor that usually is called the XB270HA.

XB270HU:
IPS panel
27"
16:9
2560x1440
true 8-bit (no FRC)
G-Sync
ULMB, maxing at 120Hz
price is 750-800 euros (in my country)
http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.HB0AA.001
In my country it's called: EAN 4713147881291 or SKU UM.HB0EE.009

XB270HA:
TN panel
27"
16:9
1920x1080
true 8-bit (no FRC)
G-Sync
ULMB, maxing at 144Hz (I assume)
price is ~500 euros (in my country)
http://www.acer.co.ee/ac/en/EE/content/model/UM.HB0EE.A01
In my country it's called: EAN 4713147427536 or SKU UM.HB0EE.A01

Hope this helps.

I guess newegg has a typo in their product description then. They have the XB270HA listed as a XB270HU

No other choices, where I bought it it's 30 days for a full refund, and the first one I bought started having problems after 35 days... frown.gif So I could only deal with Acer directly.
