Hi. I don't have the Acer but I do have the Swift and wanted to ask what exactly does a profile such as this one do, or what does it change?
All I did to calibrate my Swift was what they did on Tomshardware which is set brightness to 44, Contrast to 50 (or 49 which is supposed to fix some issue or other) and changed the RGB a little.
I'm a noob when it comes to monitor calibration but I'm always thinking that there is more that can be done to get this picture looking better.

Two things I wanted to add to this...

1. I thought I saw someone ask about if G-sync really makes much of a difference so wanted to say that it does, a tremendous one. I wasn't too sure about it either at first but now I can't go back to no G-sync.
I feel like 50fps with G-sync on feels smoother than 90 FPS without it.

2. I'm sure the IPS Acer has better colors, I mean that is what IPS is known for vs TN. I would like to know exactly how much better those colors are but I think the only way for me to see that difference is to put the two side by side. In those two pics of them standing side by side the Acer does look better of course but the Swift being a TN must be viewed from directly in front and that is not the case in the pic.
I've always wanted an IPS monitor after seeing how much better my friends Ultrasharp monitor colors were over my plain Dell 24 inch a long time ago but ended up with another TN in the Swift. I do like it, a lot, I mean it's much better than my old monitor but yea no IPS.

PS. I remember watching a review where JJ said that gamers won't really notice a difference in color on the Swifts 8bit TN panel vs an IPS panel. bet that was BS eh smile.gif

oh and yea a Swift with an IPS panel would sweeeeet

Hey um, in that second picture the lights at the restaurant look very bright on the Acer compared to the Swift. Is that what IPS glow?

That indeed is BS. Anyone with healthy eyes who has seen each of those panels ever can tell what is a TN and IPS/VA by just looking at that single screen. You don't even need to put them side by side.

Asus IPS with ActiveSync is out later this year, but I don't think we'll see G-Sync IPS due to price difference. G-Sync module is allegedly very expensive.

In Europe Acer IPS is 1000 euro on Amazon, Swift is 700. For 600 euro more you can buy 5K Dell or ultra-wide Dell or LG for the same price.

Asus are releasing an IPS Swift with G-Sync later this year, it's called the PG279Q.

I bought Acer XB270HU from newegg and i sold it because of backlight bleed, then i bought another one from ACER, and its even worse, very noticable backlight bleed and i sold it also.
Then recently i bought ROG Swift TN panel, and i was worry because some guys complain from the viewing angle and color washed out ...etc.
But really its amazing monitor, zero backlight bleed very beautiful color very low lag, i even cant tell the difference in color between the acer and swift, trust me i have an excellent vision.

Wile it is possible that there is bleed and glow, it is impossible for a not-blind person to fail to see difference in color reproduction.

I like the colors on the Swift, they don't look washed out at all to me and I don't really have any issue with the viewing angles or top/bottom stuff. I also rarely notice the AG coating. I've only really noticed it three times so far. It's slightly noticeable when on the web but only on white really, like this page (obviously you know what white looks like). Another time I notice it is when I'm in my Horde Garrison in WoW I can see it when im looking at the snow (which is also white) but it doesn't bother me much. Lastly, I noticed it in GTA5 yesterday towards the top of the screen when I was flying and looking at the sun. Maybe some are just much more sensitive to it than I am.

The picture on the Swift is really nice though, atleast for me it is. I find it to be crisp, detailed and with vibrant colors. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't prefer a Swift with an IPS panel though smile.gif I know my friends Ultrasharp monitor had some really nice colors.
