I used the top so must not.

How do you get 15.4 drivers without freesync ? Isn't it already there ? So your using 15.4 with dp

Ordered one. Interested to compare it to my overclocked Xstar DP2710. Hope it will be worth it! smile.gif

From what I read about it, people with the korean monitors are saying it's better than their OC'd Koreans.

Anyone with this monitor had the firmware upgraded?

According to Tftcentral:
Quote:
Update 2nd July 2015 - Acer have confirmed a firmware update has now been made available to their service teams to address any issues people are facing with the activation of overdrive with FreeSync systems. The following statement was provided to us: "Customer service and experience are priorities for Acer. Customers owning an Acer XG270HU Monitor may potentially experience slower response times when connected over DisplayPort to FreeSync compatible graphic cards of the PC. When connecting to PCs with other graphic cards or connection options there is no impact on the performance and response time. Customers which believe they are experiencing a potentially slower response time than normal, may contact the nearest Acer Service Center for a firmware update."

If you managed to upgrade the firmware, how was the process?
Did The monitor had to be sent in to Acer?
How's the results with the new firmware?

Cheers!

You have to pay to have the monitor shipped to an Acer service center to have the firmware updated. They want it sent by courier with insurance. I have to ship mine 1000km to have my two Acer XG270HU monitors updated, at a cost of over $200 for the two monitors, and they won't cover the cost of shipping to them (I'm assuming they would pay to have them shipped back to me). On top of the $200 this means I'm without my computer for at least two weeks.

I could apply the firmware update myself in less than five minutes in all likelihood. I've updated firmware on everything from printers, to dvd roms, to nic's and routers, including upgrading the firmware more than once on a Samsung monitor, and I've never once had a problem related to the upgrading process--the only problems I've ever had were with upgrading DD-WRT on routers, and those were a problem with the DD-WRT firmware build, not the upgrade process.

If this is how they deal with firmware upgrades, I would strongly suggest you avoid Acer products, until they either go out of business, or they change that asinine policy...

Just bought this monitor to with a 290 crossfire setup.

Any tips for me? What is the latest firmware, I just want to check back of monitor make sure my manufacture date is good to go.

Also, any ghosting issue with this? Any settings tips? biggrin.gif

What is the freesync range? I read it is 30hz to 144hz, but others have said 35hz? anyone know for sure?

2560 x 1440 @ 144 Hz and FreeSync enabled. But you'll only get that with a DisplayPort connection as that card doesn't support HDMI 2.0. If you have problems with artifacts, flickering, and/or not being able to set it to 144 Hz, try a different DisplayPort cable. I tried a StarTech cable and it didn't work—artifacts, flickering and couldn't set the refresh rate above 60 Hz. I had good luck with a Tripp Lite cable. Oddly enough I experienced some flickering with the DisplayPort cable that came with the monitor.

edit: It was only the very first run of monitors that had a firmware problem. If you just bought the monitor it will have the latest version of the firmware.

EDIT: TFTCentral Review HERE

What settings do you use?

and if I set Bluelight to 80% does this mean it's filtering 80% of the blue light? or if I turn it off which it is off by default, its not blocking any blue light correct? so i set it to 80% its actually only blocking 20% blue light?

I believe you are correct. I tried the blue light blocking and didn't much like the picture quality.
