I read people having a lot of issues with these 144hz IPS panels which doesn't help with the remorse at all. Did I a mistake by choosing this monitor instead of it's updated model (xb271hu) or by not waiting for future releases? What kind of things I should keep my eye on when the monitor finally arrives? The last thing I want is to find my quite expensive buy is defective. Thank you.
Quality control is a problem on all the 2560x1440/144hz panels, including the XB271HU, as far as I'm aware.

This is partially correct as the XB271HU uses a better panel.

It does? The only differences I was aware of were shipping with 165hz by default and the different bezel and stand.

Yeah, the panel on the XB271HU tends to have better uniformity and less BLB than XB270HU/PG279Q.

Definitely a reason to go for that at the same price.

Hey guys and gals. This thread doesn't seem nearly as active as the XB271HU thread! Anyways, I bought a 271 with a cracked LCD panel for a hundred bucks and called Acer to setup a panel replacement and low and behold they don't offer any type of LCD replacement for that monitor. Searched all the lands for a panel to buy and the only one I found was almost $700 before taxes and import fees. So I'm going to throw that one in the closet for the time being and wait until there are more M270DAN02.6 LCD panels available.

So I got pretty lucky and over the past two days I've bought two XB270HU's for a collective cost of $750. I was only planning on buying one, but I couldn't let the deal on the second one go. Now I'm going to have to get a third so I can do some triple screen gaming. If only the bezel's on the 270's were as thin as the 271's!

Coming from my ASUS PB278Q. This will be my first time gaming at 144hz and I'm quite excited!

The XB270HU isn't as new and shiny as the 271; there are two threads for this and the 271 only has the one (that I know of). Here's hoping you get good ones thumb.gif.

XB270HU's aren't the type of monitor one runs in dual or triple setup's. Only a GTX 1080 can run one comfortably at 1440p/144hz. At that point you might as well have went with a 4k screen if you wanted resolution, and it would be cheaper. 1440p is nice, but if you can't run 144hz or so, there's no point in having a 144hz monitor. So I feel like you're trying to reach this dream setup goal based on old setup performances, i.e. 1080p triple monitor.....and it's ultimately misguided. We won't be seeing anything that can run triple 1440p/144hz monitors at good refresh rates, for a few years.

With the advent of 4k or 21:9 screens, multi monitor setups make much less sense and are a thing of the past.

Well I do a lot of music production and video editing work so triple screens are perfect for that. Not at all outdated for that use. I personally would never get a 27" 4k monitor. Too much screen real estate for such a small screen. I get a pretty high framerate in most games with my 980 Ti so I'm not at all worried about running a single 1440p 144hz monitor performance wise. Not sure what makes you think that I would have trouble running a single 1440p at a decent refresh rate. Obviously gaming on three of these is going to be taxing, but if you have three monitors for working why wouldn't you try it?

You'll hardly ever notice that dead pixel due to its placement, and if you exchange it you risk getting one with poor uniformity, high BLB and you may still get dead pixels.

I know this was a while ago but a Newegg rep quickly did a replacement RMA for me, even after telling her that there was only 1 dead pixel. Shipped it back to them, they authorized it within a few hours of them receiving it. Shipment of replacement was pretty slow but it finally got here today. No dead pixels, BLB is about the same as with the previous. So I'm pretty glad!
