We haven't heard anything from Acer's side since the XB271 was unveiled at IFA, apart from the fact that it too would support a 165 Hz overclock. Hopefully the longer delay is due to time invested for better QC. But we all know that that probably won't happen.

Well technically they were first with the XB270HU.

Exactly! That's my point. You would expect them to be the first with this supposedly new panel as well. The only clue to when it will be released is that NCIX's listing says that it will be available on November 18th. But that is NCIX's Canada. Something tells me that the Acer XB271 will release simultaneously in both US and Europe.

Sorry kashim but we don't know yet. From very early user experienced (like 2 or 3) it seems it is better than ROG Swift but we can't tell for sure yet. TFT review should be by the end of week I think of new Dell and we will see then.

We also wait for someone with ROG do to some comparsion. But yea, nothing sure for now. Sorry.

Side note rant: It was MUCH easier to upgrade from one RIG to another, picking all hardware and stuff than upgrading monitor... That is just riddiculous...


If 279Q is same panel as XB270HU then I can give opinion. I have rog swift in front of me and had xb270hu as well. Colors bit better on XB270HU. For average person, they would say it's a little bit better on xb270hu. More density in colors but just tiny bit. The design, rog swift is much better including stand, and frames etc. Colors on rog swift almost IPS level.

Rog swift seems like it's a little bit smoother with gsync in games with same settings on GPU and computer components etc. I used skyrim and MGS for comparison.

I kept rog swift because I got it for $450.00 - if I choose one monitor with retail price as new, asus pg279q will be my top choice.

xb270hu and rog swift - kinda half half because of design. stand and frame isn't done right on acer.

The problem with premium TN panels is not colors, but uniformity. It is only for games, for some more serious work it is not. So my advice, if you are buying monitor just for games, then buy one of those premium TN panels. But if you also want to work on your PC then hands off from TN.

I'm always amazed by people who put image quality and design at the same level smile.gif

Sorry, for some reason the screenshot got garbled when I uploaded it from my phone. But it should show the color and lighting tweaks all right.

I so hope I get a good PG279Q like all of us here. Acer owns AUO basically so I wont be surprised if it's bad, but still.. I waited 9 months for the XB270HU and it was such a huge disappointment I got a Surface Pro 3 for the immediate IPS needs for work.

But any monitor that uses this Acer Unipac Optronics panel is more than sure to have some issues. There is if course good ones and I hope Asus has more of those and that they're going to have tighter QC over what gets through and what not!

EDIT: Worth a good look if you haven't yet read it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AU_Optronics

Nice preset, did you upload it to sweetfx database ? Would like to try it.

Thank you! Not yet, it still needs work: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
for example the lighting at night, moon, some starfield edits, cloud fine tuning, watertune.xml, finding the timecycles I like from gta5-mods.com or then modding the built in ones, getting the ENB light mods just right, trying to find a way to lessen color banding (maybe it's just this old BenQ TN monitor there haha, can't wait for the PG279Q) and some other small things.. Granted, most of those are game file mods, but they together make the package!

I'll disable all other mods than ENB and ReShade and try to get a somewhat similar feel to the game, then upload only that on gta5-mods.com and sweetfx database! I'll send you a PM then!

I don't understand why you would go from a PG278Q to a PG279Q just for the 'IPS' variation and nothing else. Its pure junk. I'm sure other IPS panels are great, just not these high end 'gaming' monitors.

NO-ONE has found a perfect one in this thread so I don't think it even exists. We are all in different countries and different batches but all have the same old problems...

I mostly do gaming so yes I think it's good enough for $450.00 for me:D

It's not that I put it on same level for image and design for shallow reasons. For me I relate it to thoughts they put in a product which equals better pricing, because for obvious they have worked harder for those respects than the other panel. In all, it feels not premium for $700-$800 monitor and get annoying considering I put in thoughts as well for color matching components etc. I mean, we like ips better for better "image" right? I get worse image from my eyes when I look at my system as a whole from outside.

450$ is indeed a good price. Maybe if I wouldn't be to immersive I would keep PG278Q but going from IPS it would be too much hearth breaking for me. It's nice to have a nice design, that's truth, but image quality should be considered in first place. Here PG279Q is not available yet and it's 150 eur more than XB270HU. This is pretty much just for nicer design (165Hz and HDMI are not important for me). From those reviews this first batch suffered from some colors/brightness uniformity problems so I would like to avoid this. This was not reported with older Acer. That's why I've gave it a shoot. Most probably I will be disappointed, then I will try PG279Q and XB271HU. If those will not be satisfying I'm done with AUO IPS panels fro good.
