You don't want to wait for the new ones to come out in a few weeks?

What makes you think they will be any better? I've not seen any proof. If I do, I still have a month to keep returning.

The XB271HU is being made with the exact same specs as the XB270HU but being redesigned with a new stand and mount and they should have completely addressed the manufacturing issues on this one. So why not wait for that?

That's the only smart thing to do.

exact? 150hz instead and how do you know they've addressed the manufacturing issues at all? Or even thought about it?

No one will know until buyers start getting their hands on one. I agree with Falkentyne that it really doesn't make sense to pick up a XB270HU at it's current price when the XB271HU will be releasing so soon.

Don't think it's gonna drop much under 700. I paid 719.

Because wishful thinking is OP.
Seriously, do you really think Acer doesn't know about all the issues with the returns? I think they do, and most companies DO learn their lessons.
So there's nothing to lose by waiting.
let's give the XB271HU a chance before we get out our pitchforks. There will always be units that have a random dead pixel or some that are picture perfect. But if they turn out to be crap, then we can get out the fire and brimstone.

Same thing with the Eizo Foris.
The 2421 was a horrible crapshoot of discarded parts from the satellite version.

Does that mean that the 2735 will be bad, also? Maybe. But I think it's worth waiting and seeing how It goes. It's very possible Eizo will have a truly good monitor out.

TFT's recommended RGB settings are rubbish. I set them and my screen had way too much red in it. in fact, the out of the box RGB settings are perfect to me, bright white whites. All of the settings were basically perfect out of the box. although you do get some crushing in the blacks at 2.2 gamma, at 1.9 that brings out the details that are crushed but everything else is a little too high in gamma, so it's just best to leave it at 2.2

Ah the wonders of inter-unit variation. You can't simply use somebody else's settings on a monitor and expect them to work flawlessly with your unit, especially not when it comes to colour temperature and balance. These 144Hz models in general seem to show quite significant variation unfortunately.
