How do these settings compare to the settings and profile on TFTCentral? Did the calibration requirements change alot with the update (TFTCentral's calibration was using the old firmware with the old OSD).

I just got my monitor set up after returning the newer XB271HU because the backlight bleed was way to much.

This was my XB271HU @~25 brightness.


This is my new (October 2015 rev) XB270HU @24 brightness.


(Both pictures taken at ISO1000, F3.5, 1/3s)

The backlight bleed has only really been noticable when I am doing the test. Played XCom 2 for several hours and did not notice anything. Will give it a few days and a few more test before I am 100% but I think this will do.

So i have my friend's XB270HU that he needs to sell and im doing that job for him cause hes too lazy to do it himself and i remember when he got it it had some dirt behind the panel, 3 spots to be exact. I told him get a replacement but hes not as anal as we are here in regards to panel quality even when the damn thing cost $800. So today i took it apart to remove the dirt because other than that problem the thing is absolutely flawless, no bleed, and very very minimal glow.

Unfortunately i found that those spots that are clearly visible when on a light background are scuffs behind the panel itself. They were on the backside of the panel as well as on the actual backlight. Here are some photos





If you look closely you'll see a white spot in the middle of the photos which is that scuff im mentioning. Is it too late to get a warranty replacement on this thing? I mean its not mine, but the resale value definitely falls through the floor a bit.

You still need to change OSD settings. The above looks like it's titled toward high color saturation rather than accuracy, I could be wrong though.

The icc is the older icc that TFT had IMO its better than the one they have now it gives off better whites and I adjust OSD till my eyes are satisfied took while till i got to way i like.

If you like vibrant colors you might like the settings.

Should I pull the trigger on a refurb one of these for $450?
post #3769 of 4125
Give it a shot but it will prob have issues like pixel and no doubt BLB. Also don't expect it to have newer firmware with additional IQ settings and ability of OC to 165hz .

I'm not super worried about 165 vs 144. A reddit thread on this monitor seemed like it got decent reviews for the refurbs
