[Official] Acer Predator XB270HU Owners Club - Page 324

post #3231 of 4149
So I got my XB270HU back from the 2nd RMA ( so its the the 3rd monitor )
1st monitor: Dust, dead subpixel
2nd monitor: yellow colortint

But now my 3rd monitor has a kinda blurry image.
I don't know, the fonts, the icons etc. ... everything looks like I'm not using this monitor in native resolution. But I set everything to 1440p.
White's are whiter than on the 2nd one, still not good as on the 1st but its okay. Also no dead pixels or dust.


Anyone ever heard about blurry images on XB270HU ?

not a good sign. 144hz monitors with ULMB are supposed to be the most "blur" free monitors available. I'd keep playing the lottery. That's your 3rd monitor, Id guess you have at least 2 rmas to go before you find one that's acceptable.

Defective.
People with ROG Swifts had their panels start showing that type of defect after it was fine for months. They knew it was the panel because it showed it even on the BIOS screen.

if unplugging the panel from the wall (after doing a factory reset, if that's even possible from the OSD) and letting the power discharge and plugging back in doesn't fix it, then its shot. Unplugging+factory OSD reset fixed the missing 144hz 1440p setting on some XL2730Z's (I forgot what callsignvega said had happened but that fixed it).

Yeah but its not blurry like the swift, where you can't read anything. It just feels a bit blurry, maybe its just my imagination...
It just looks like clear type isn't setup properly

I just picked up another perfect 2 month old XB270HU for $450 from a local OCN member after getting rid of my old one. I'm still disappointed with the glossy bezels and build quality but for the price I can deal with it. I guess with the PG279Q and the Predator X34 released, this thread is starting to slow down a lot.

Edit: I found what I thought to be a dead pixel and was pretty bummed but then I tried the flicking method mentioned here that I used for my previous XB270HU and it worked. Ended up being a tiny spec of dust behind the screen. Thanks to the guy who discovered this method. It has worked twice now for 2 different monitors.

G-sync experts.... what happens on games that can run over 144hz ?

Example COD MW, people are saying run it at 333fps if you can ? ok great for those who do not have g-sync.. what happens to us 144hz gsync owners thou? given the gpu will only match the monitors refresh rate signal.

One can only assume that it is unwise to set a max fps to 333 for titles using the idEngine? (COD games)

Please advise.

When you go over 144 Hz with G-sync, it will depend on what your V-sync (yes, V-sync) setting is. V-sync on will limit you to 144 FPS but there will be no tearing. V-sync off will let you run unlimited FPS but of course there will be tearing (but it may be quite hard to see at 300+ FPS). So basically G-sync will make no difference for games where your FPS can always stay above your monitor's max refresh rate. In those situations some people prefer to turn off G-sync and V-sync and use ULMB instead to reduce motion blur.

My guess is Gsync simply ignores frame drawn over the refresh rate. There's no reason not to since the monitor can't draw the extra frames anyways. Turning Vsync on at any time, automatically disables Gsync. There's definitely a noticeable input difference between Gsync @ 144hz and Vsync @ 144hz, and that's because Vsync is literally making hardware wait to process further. That's what makes Gsync soo good, the graphics card no longer waits.

Adaptive sync in the control panel is a whole 'nother setting separate from hardware Gsync; it only enables vsync when the frame rate goes above the refresh rate, and disables it when it drops below.

Sorry, that's not true. I've run G-sync with V-sync on and it most certainly doesn't disable G-sync.
