  • Same coating as said monitors.
  • The same amount of glow as said monitors.
  • At 144 Hz with OD set to Normal, they got ever so slightly faster response than the XB270HU, which was faster than the MG279Q. The amount of overshoot is negligible.
  • You need a GTX 960 or above to run 165 Hz.
  • Response time is higher at 165 Hz than 144 Hz.
  • They have no picture comparison of 165 Hz vs 144 Hz.

This is why TFT Central is the go to for monitor reviews. You rarely see reviews in such depth. I'm surprised that the PG279Q has a faster response time, especially with so little overshoot, lots of people were convinced it would be slower.

Yep! I think what I might have to do is buy both the ASUS and ACER and decide within the return period on which one I'm going to keep.

Well, the monitor is practically just for gaming, so colour and everything doesn't matter actually...I mean, with my settings (from panel itself and windows calibration) i can come close to my ips (PB278QR). Of course it's not the same as the IPS one, but in gaming it really doesn't matter i like the 1ms of 28Q wich is awsome with gsync and 144HZ..But Honestly, even in gaming the anti-glare coating is much more irritating than the PB278QR wich is perfect for me (seems more glossy). The picture of the PG278Q looks grainy compared to my IPS screen...I will think about it and decide (i have 2 weeks to make an rma/refund)

xb271 will be the same. It uses the same panel- how it can be different?

Good that TFT is up. I hope I can find there best color calibrations.

Also did they write anything about glow/bleed? Right now I have no time to sit and read (family...).

BTW. What turbo button does? Mine is on 144Hz so I guess it is just so you can lock your monitor MAX refresh rate to either 60, 120 or 144? What use does it have....I don't get why you would like to lock your refresh rate... Anyone?

If you're just a casual gamer or a competitive gamer then sure. But I play games for immersion, as do many others, so contrast and blacks are huge, and color accuracy is important too.

I would refrain from guessing what panel the XB271HU is using unless Acer confirm it themselves, we all thought the PG279Q was using the same panel as the XB270HU and look at how that turned out.
They did talk about glow and bleeding too. They mention glow is an IPS characteristic and bleeding is a build quality issue. There's seem to have a fair bit of IPS glow as expected but has minimal bleeding which seems to support the consensus that they would receive a cherry picked monitor.

Agreed. I enjoy games more if my experience has enhanced immersion and having accurate colours, good contrast and deep blacks is very important part of the enhancing process.

Ok, well, TFT got super cherry-picked monitor.

Look at their screen corners:




Well, compre to our screens with more corners light and more yellow then white glow this look SOOO much better. And I didn't see anyone yet with such pure white glow in corners as TGT one.... Users screens were all yellowish and bigger than that.

Its just a gimmicky on the fly refresh rate quick switch.
If you OC to 165 the 144 disappears as apparently it also does in windows refresh rate.
Something about the restriction of the number of refresh modes that can be listed

Oh well....
TFT Central likes it, PCPer like it, Hexus like it...
But what about the customers..?

I assume the panel has just been adjusted/modified to fit into slim bezel monitors, but is technically identical to the panel in the Acer 270. It is VERY unlikely, that AUO designed a new Panel in less than half a year. And there actually was no reason to change the panel, other than optimize the process with cleaner environments and more reliable lcd crystals that dont tend to become faulty that much.

Again, TFTC also assumes that the new panel has actually to do with the slim monitor housings, but it is likely the same tech inside as in the acer (is what I think).

@Benny- Lmao, exactly my thoughts when I read the article. I was like- this is not the same monitor as the majority of all the ppl here got... Yeah them cherry picked examples for review sites... ffs

As noted in the review a lot of users confuse 'IPS glow' ('AHVA glow') with backlight bleed. The uniformity image purely shows backlight bleed, whereas user photographs typically show the glow as well. They're also often horrendously overexposed, which doesn't help matters.
