Damn, what are you going to do now ?

How so? From what I see the backlight of the XB270HU is about the same strength as the PG279Q. TFT didn't test the XB270HU at 120Hz but at 100Hz it's a little brighter because it's longer in the "on period". If they would compare both at 120Hz, I am pretty sure that the results would be quite similar. However they do admit that the PG278Q is brighter with the same settings due to a stronger backlight.

True, the original HU test was 100 Hz. But in the end state, this panel series has some of the dimmest ULMB out there. That could be a concern for some. Personally I think G-Sync benefits outweigh ULMB, but it's great there is an option.

That is not true. The only reason ULMB is so dim is because the short on-time and the maximum luminosity that can be produced during the quick pulse with a current LED back-light that meets package/cost requirements.

An example is the Eizo FG2421. It could strobe with a brightness of 257 cd/m2! (2.1ms pulse) That is over two and a half times brighter than this display strobing and it looked good doing it. Eizo IMO used higher end LED's.

It is also worth to note that many new PG have chasis being a little off at the down right corner near power ligh and controls.

My friends PG also has this.

This is not the only example, as here in this thread there was similar picture and on german sites you can also find people with it.

This might have something to do with down right corner glow. This chasis fault might be because there is some hardware there (control panel parts or somethig) that was just not perfectly suited into chasis (design mistake I belive).

Can't really tell if it can be "pressed" into panel again.

Oh well, anything above 100 cd/m2 is too bright for me anyway, I would just end up turning it down. My preference is somewhere between 50 and 100 cd/m2 and that's not even in a dark room, just no direct sunlight.

Did you get a replacement? Was that better?

1st pg279q
2nd xb270hu
3rd pg278q
but money can make difference for someone,for casual gamers only (loving dark or horror games)a good va like fg2421 can be a good bet biggrin.gif...i m wrong guys?i ll need update my xl2411t and i don t know if buy now pg279q or wait xb271hu :S..
pg278q is good with less blurry image but as boredgunner said me the little more response time difference isn t noticible,but i ll have greater color accuracy without artifact tongue.gif,i m competitive fps player for games like cs go and battlefield and i think it s worth ips 144hz over 144tn....i ll only hope to take a good panel without issues :S...i m wrong guys?


as you said earlier in this thread, we're in the same boat with our xl2411's, and i don't really feel like gaming on it because of the staggering difference to the korean ips next to it.
unfortunately, the korean has far too much blur to my liking.
so i need the best of two worlds. and since this is rather expensive, i'll wait for pq279q vs xb271hu and see what fits better.
the acer won't have the rog surcharge, but we'll see about what acer has improved in qc since the 270hu.

That's a shame, if you do find it in your history, please post it, I'd love to call this guy out. It's not as bad as it looks, partially noticeable in dark games like Metro, some of you guys would likely return it but I can't be bothered returning it. I'll be building my new PC soon and if I return this monitor I'd have no monitor for the new PC. Not to mention I don't want to run the risk of getting one even worse with dust or dead pixels because this current monitor has neither.

Mine isn't like this and I seem to have the worst bleed out of everyone on here.

Well, then I guess each of us has to suffer from somethnig with this monitor while reviewers get perfect ones picked by bunch of people looking for it for few weeks.....

Open a fullscreen pale grey picture and stare at it for a while. Then it's absolutely visible. Left side: warm grey, Right side: slighlty cooler
E.g. on a website with a grey background, you notice that color uniformity issue.
