@misiak since you asked- i sold my 270 cause i wasnt very happy with glossy housing of the acer, plus things turned out that i really need a 2nd input. I was otherwise happy with 270s image. I bought one from the very 1st batch and kept the 1st one. It had some blb in bottom right corner but it was acceptable still, on the positive side it had no poxel errors and very minimal glow.
But in the last months ive seen more ppl get bad panels on the acer with extensive glow and all the other issues..
My assumption is this- I think auo changed their manufacturing process to save some additinal costs and uses different parts in the panel than it did in the very first batch of this panel. Ive seen some other guy on a forum who sold his 270 that also had no major issues, he bought his acer at the same store like a week before me. So heres that theory and i think its very realistic too. My acer also had a better coating than the 279, it didnt create greasy spots when you touched it and didnt reflect ovjects in the room in an extremely weird eay as my 279 did.
I sold my 270 for 610 eur.. After all that panel lottery with the 279 id gladly pay 650 to get my old acer back.
A guy claiming his 279 has worst glow out of all users... Watch my YT vids how bad mine was
search for 279+glow
Now im waiting for 271 though and will decide then. If not the panel issues and the ugly glossy housing, id say acer had a pretty good 1st ips gsync monitor.
Im now moreconfident that 271 will be better than asus. The stand looks worse but monitor housing looks better imo. Since i have ergotron stand idc about the 271s lego stand.Edited by Stars - 10/24/15 at 8:27am
