[Official] Acer Predator XB270HU Owners Club - Page 134

post #1331 of 4125
I have to fix my car again so I guess there's a silver lining in that I have to wait a bit longer on the monitors (got all my accessories so the PC is good to go) so hopefully Acer gets this sorted out. I did sell my Samsung for 400$ which was nice. Hope you guys get your good monitors soon.

When I order should I go Amazon (I have Prime) or should I go for Newegg? (this won't be until June)

I'd venture a guess and say Newegg's stock on this item will have greater fluctuation than Amazon's. Would be a best guess that Newegg would receive newer batches of the monitor before Amazon. Then again, Microcenter does not have theirs yet, so theirs may be the newest.

There also seems to be no indication that manufacture dates = better panel. My first April panel had a big dead pixel blob in the left center of the screen. My current April panel is as good as it's going to get. Other people have gone through 6 of them, all junk.

I will add though that with Newgg premier, I had zero hassle returning the first one and my refund was processed promptly upon its return. I was also given a $50 gift card and free 2 day shipping on the second monitor. That $50 gift card offset the entire cost of premier for the year.

As such once the monitor is booked in, tested and confirmed to be faulty we would not be able to send a replacement

The monitor would need to be refunded/finance agreement for this purchase cancelled<<<



now i have to wait until acer fix the problem and put the monitor on sales again.... my luck....mad.gif

 

I'm glad that Acer finally identified "QA issues", hopefully there won't be the same issues when the new 34" 21:9 comes out later in August...

Hi I Bought mine from Scan in the UK, I have a small hole in the frame by the screen, that will most likely let dust into the unit, when I bought it to Scans attention they didn't want to know as not reported in 48hrs, really poor customer service, they wont be getting by business again, also I think there is dirt in the unit as well, I have now gone direct to Asus, who are taking the unit in for repai P1020515.jpg 6158k .jpg file P1020514.jpg 6147k .jpg file P1020518.jpg 6285k .jpg file r

Scan customer service is really poor i had major problem with them also while they where hiding behind their rules......
im not buying anything from them again...they need 5 days to check my monitor and another 5 days to refund my money back after their check
so i called to say that i am dissatisfied and i want a cancel and refund now but they say no we first need to check the monitor....
the conclusion is total 10 working days to take my money back and overall 15 days from the time i purchase the damn monitor from them....
and because of that i have 690£ locked and i cannot use them to buy other monitor priceless!

Ordered 2 more on overstock.com for $698(each) ((10%off new customers and had to make 2 accounts(only 1 per account)) wink.gif

Hopefully one of those 2 will be a keeper, already had bad luck with 2 from bhphotovideo

So you want to show us a picture taken in such a way that we can tell you that the glow is unacceptable to you??

If you are enjoying it and it looks good to you, there's no need to take a picture! smile.gif

Cost me 1k USD (in Norway), but its perfect as far as I can tell.

No dead or stuck pixels (that I have noticed yet) , minimal backlight bleed in the bottomn right and left corner.

expensive, but that G-sync is epic, colors are almost as good as my old Dell U2711, but the less motion blur and higher refresh rate really makes a difference!

now to sell my old Dell tongue.gif

Mine's got small light bleed, otherwise perfect so kept it.

Honestly I can only notice difference between G-sync on/off in NVIDIA's pendulum demo. In games can't notice any real difference. I suppose G-sync is working, as pendulum demo works?


Brightness 20

Brightness 100
