How does that Acer handle current 3, 4a and 4b ?

Not very well...

Strange thing is i swear when i got it i went through them & it didnt do it on any of the tests. Just slight flickering.


Also, playing with my new Galaxy S6 camera:





Not sure why it shows the redish light in the top right corner.. Must have been the way i was holding the camera or something.

I have the same pixel inversion test issue. In fact, it does occur in practice, using Windows 7 basic theme when dragging a window - the very top of the top bar causes inversion artefacts across the screen.

This appears to be inherent to the design of the display.

I'm prepared to live with it, as I've never seen it occur in "real world" use other than dragging windows. If it were cropping up more often then it would be a different matter.

wow that's pretty bad.
I Just went to the w7 basic theme and I don't get any inversion dragging the top of a window anywhere (unless I'm doing it wrong?)
I guess that's just an IPS issue?

I did not like that vsync got disabled in w7 basic though. Went back to aero after testing.

Not an IPS issue, just a specific monitor or a Windows issue. I have seen that problem on a lot of different monitors and most especially on TVs. Even plasma TVs that dont use any sort of LCD panel.

That is so weird, I tried to get mine to do it with various different themes and backgrounds, but nothing. Maybe the type of desktop background or combo of colors causes it. I have yet to see anything like that on mine.

Anyone exchanged one back to Amazon and had it replaced? Did it fix the issues with it?

So yeah, this thing is getting returned immediately...

I wanna share my ips glow so what kind of camera do i need to use? Do i need to turn off the lights? Because i wanna know if my ips glow is acceptable or worse. But right now im enjoying this monitor, ips panel is game changer to me lol ill never go back to tn panel. Thanks!!!

Just thought I'd wade in on this.

My XB270HU arrived today. I was really worried it'd have some of the faults described here. And it does...

Serious IPS glow on a black background, but otherwise I don't notice it. I've got 1 tiny spec of dirt in the bottom right. It's only noticeable on a white background. I probably wouldn't even have noticed it if I hadn't read this thread first. No dead pixels as far as I can tell.

This monitor is such a huge improvement over my previous TN-panel BenQ XL2411Z (especially the colours and the viewing angle) that I really can't be bothered to RMA it.
