Acer XB270HU 27" 1440p now or wait ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
About to make the jump into hyperspace.

Got my finger ready on the trigger !! Do i buy the Acer XB270HU 27" 1440p now or just wait it out a little longer... surely there's got to be something gsync/IPS better on the horizon, that's IPS 144hz, g-gync and 1440p

That's NOT got a shiny bezel ? and perhaps the quality issues i've been reading about.

At the moment my only option is the Acer.

Anything better on the horizon. My patience levels are not the greatest. So anyone know what's coming, and how long of a wait would i realistically have to wait ?

DEFINTELY WAIT.
the XB271HU is coming out next month. As well as a 4k version. The XB271hu should fix the QA issues of the XB270 and if it doesn't then you can get the 270 at a lower price by then.

And if you can wait even longer, Eizo is coming out with a freesync IPS (probably with the same panel as the Acer) and with built in blur reduction that is not Nvidia specific. Foris FS2735, I think.

Right now is a horrible time to buy. Wait.

I agree horrible time... Like only one option, and that option is one that's plagued with quality issues.

Problem is, either you take it with your fingers crossed or wait, and wait and wait... So the new XB271 is out on the horizon.. As in an Asus one i believe. Who's to say it won't be plagued with the same quality issue? Acer has already proved itself as a completely incompetent company with the XB270 debacle, whats to stop them doing it again.

My guess is not a lot.

I wish Dell would bring out a g-sync panel. I've always had Dell and good results with them.

They are! The S2716G, it will be out on the 20th but will be a TN panel like the original Asus Swift if that bothers you. I have also been very happy with Dell's quality, still rocking a 2707WFP which is still going great but is way too slow compared to these newer types of panels. smile.gif

Dell is coming out with a 27" gaming monitor on the October 20th of this month might want to wait for some reviews =)
This might mean the monitor won't shut off like so many other panels out there or be dead pixel grease stain free.....

Just got to add:

Love my Acer XB270HU.

Only issue I have with it is some IPS Glow, but that gets alot less noticable when I have used it for a while.

Most Q/A issues I have read about it, was from the US. so its possible it was transport damage.

I've very much enjoyed my XB270HU. That said, don't get one, wait a little bit for the 271.
post #9 of 14
I'm in the same boat and I am going to wait it out. All I know is that I absolutely must have a new monitor by November 10th! wink.gif

Funny that they are releasing the 271 and the 270 still isn't available in Canada rolleyes.gif
