Acer XB270HU 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Discussion Thread - Page 93

post #921 of 4031
Oh yeah - wow - I ran that test (http://www.testufo.com/#test=inversion&pattern=uniformity2&ppf=5) on my BenQ XL2420G and I see a gray bar on top, 2nd is a purple/green bar (alternating), and 3rd and 4th bar is gray. All with the same "blink" my XB270HU had. Does that mean the XL2420G has the problem? What exactly is this issue that you're trying to verify? I've never heard of it. Noob here. smile.gif

That pattern is setup to be exactly wrong in different ways to bother the various methods the panels use to try to avoid pixel cross talk. The pixels' electric fields all line up weird, amplify or suppress each other, and you get odd color shifts and flicker.

That is actually very interesting..

Aye all I see are gray checkered patterns one finer than the other and both are exact same color.

Was wondering how to tell if it was a bad test or not xD

This is 100% true. I've owned both. Swift was great but it was a TN. I tweaked the settings and after a few days I got used to it. It didn't look that bad. But day 1 with the Acer xb270hu, it's beautiful. But if color accuracy isn't your thing then yes it's just a side grade.

Could you check this one too, please?

Do you see a green blur on the trailing edge of the gray bar? It's also good to try out these tests with ULMB activated.

Yes, Swift doesn't look bad at all once tweaked and calibrated. Those viewing angles and matte coating though... I'll get this Acer and sell the Swift at some point in the future because I crave those great colors. biggrin.gif It's as important as the high refresh rate for me.

No green blur at all, using Gsync.

I don't keep ULMB ativated so someone else would have to test that out.

I got 3 monitors I need to calibrate.... It'll be worth it biggrin.gif. I just might have to try it out and check my calibration my home theater as well, I think this will work for that.
