55% for day viewing max, 24-45% in general.

Oddly I can't go below 80% so I usually keep it around 85% given that brightness is my only option. I wish this had its own backlight, since I can't stand the dimmness below 80%

Hmm, I can put it at 60% and that's fine. But lower and the screen is genuinely dim. Noticeably darker than say a phone screen at 50%.

Yeah the screen would be king with a backlight setting vs just brightness.

You know, while i await delivery for my XB270HU later today, i started becoming more critical of my current Dell U2412 and i guess there's a small amount of backlight bleed or IPS glow on there, that i'd never of noticed.. But now i went looking for it, i found a little.

As long as there no dead pixels or dirt behind the screen, and the BLB is not off the chart, then i say stick with it and be happy with what you got.

Once you start intentionally looking for things that are wrong, you'll always find something.

I've been through two of these monitors in the past week. Neither had issues with backlight bleed but they have come with several noticeable dead pixels, which I find incredibly frustrating on a £600 monitor. Not really sure if I want to bother trying my luck a third time. The unit I received today is being returned tomorrow.


The main reason I picked up this monitor was because I already owned the Acer 4K, so I figured I'd get a second monitor for gaming that would look similar style-wise. However, now I'm thinking I should just drop all of that and grab the Asus ROG Swift, despite the fact that it has an inferior TN panel. I can grab the Asus panel for £500 as well so that'll be a decent saving on my end.

Does anyone here happen to have experience with both monitors? From what I've seen, quality control has been a bit spotty on both sides but I seem to hear more horror stories about the Acer panel.

Isn't the new ASUS and Acer monitors coming out in a few weeks in the UK? I know you guys get it earlier than the US. I would wait to see those babies in action.

I am a little tempted to wait for those but they are launching in the £750 range which is a bit too high for me.

I know the 4K and 1440p ones from Asus are supposed to be in-stock before Christmas over here, with the ultra-wide due in January but exact dates are still up in the air at the moment.

If the QC is good, I say you just get it. You won't have buyers remorse and you'll be happy. When we die, we don't take our money with us biggrin.gif.

Windows should find the driver itself. Also there is most definitely IPS glow, just not enough to bother you though which is great.
