Just picked mine up from Best Buy today, immediately pulled up CS:GO and had a blast, soo much better than 60hz. I'm still not sure how to do all the settings in game, V-Sync and all the post processing stuff, but I'll mess around with that later.

Its a Rev A02 and, though I haven't done any extensive testing, I don't see any dead pixels or any other problems with it. I also got an HP 27es cause it was on sale for $140 and honestly the colors look better on the Dell, though the HP is a very cheap IPS panel so that might be part of it.

Also, I installed the ICC settings from tftcentral and set it as default but I couldn't tell any difference from the stock profile.

Anyway, great monitor, very pleased with my purchase so far, especially for $449.

I called Dell and explained the buzzying. They guy cut after few seconds and said he believes me. I assume Dell is aware of the issue. Mine is A00 rev from November 2015. He said I will receive a refurb panel, we shall see if it's rev A02 or A03.

Definitely looks great with the proper card to match.
With the 1070 now I can put games on 1440p and max out settings.
In Witcher3 I disabled Hairworks, everything else maxed and getting 60-65. With Gsync I'm not seeing any tearing.
Overwatch I tweaked a few things down to get more fps. Im around 120-130. Not sure if its worth tweaking more to get to 144, or this is fine.
I'm so used to sacrificing looks for gameplay, so maybe leave it for a few more weeks and then go for performance.
With Witcher being a little darker I was able to play fine with no ambient light on in the room, no eye strain yet.
Now that I have access to the nvidia panel i'm wondering if i should/need to do more tweaks or leave a lone.
Witcher looks great, but might be because preserve gamma is an option and using Fatty's icc.
Overwatch just comes up washed out and it has an in game slider but not really sure how to configure it.

Funny side note, i was thinking to give my daughter the 24" Asus I was using instead of the old 22" LG. I realized the LG was an IPS.
So about 3 years ago I was indeed using an IPS for a while. it randomly shut off on me a few times and the power led would flicker. So I thought it was on the way out and got the cheap Asus. It seems I shafted myself in the end there. My daughter hadn't reported any random shut offs, but power led is all dead now, which is fine IMO. AMD app claims it reports 75Hz. I'll need to read up and see if I can OC it a bit for a bonus.
It's bad enough that AMD card is acting funny.Full screen Vsync on, 30fps. Triplebuffer, 45fps. Vsync off, 100fps. Borderless window, 60fps.

Got my brand new replacement from Dell today. Same revision and manufacture date as the last one. A03 April 2016. Zero dead pixels. Great panel uniformity and no signs of ass cheeks. Looks like I finally got a winner. It only took 5 new replacements. Good grief. rolleyes.gif

Anyone have comparison photos? I may be convinced to save the money versus the Acer if they got rid of it... didn't like what I saw in the store a few weeks ago.

Hi!

I Just bought this monitor and wanted to say/ ask few things about it.

*While the 1440p looks amazing, this monitor has seems to have bad QC. There are uneven gaps between actual screen and bezel. Also the gap is bigger on the right side. The lcd sits tight against upper left corner while there is a gap on the right side.

*There is very noticable ,,side-light bleeding** at the edge of the screen, specially when brightness is set above 40 and my room is dark. It seems that there is somekind of glue holding this panel against plastic case but its unevenly spread and just light press will hidde the defect and backlight shining trough it . More or less the same thing extends around the whole panel.

*I noticed few very light scratches on screen coating (not visible during normal use), but now i know its there frown.gif

*I had piece of plastic stuck between lcd and bottom edge (Dell logo on it)- was pain to took it off without scratching the screen itself. I might have loosened/or damaged this plastic strip a bit, but it holds for now. Not sure how it is attached to rest of the body.


Ok, few questions now;

Is this ,,side bleeding'' normal as I have noticed it on many other monitors as well ?
Should slightly misaligned lcd( relative to bezell) be acceptable?

I am asking because I have tried many new lcd-s lately and all off them have had defects or problems. This one is just most expensive so far...

My monitor is rev A03 June 2016.

  • Its deep sleep works, I had problem with the Dell there.
  • Its mounting (red devil horns turned towards the user) is not so decent than the Dell one.
  • ULMB strobe crosstalk is much more visible. On fast movements not just two but three trailing images can become visible if only for a short moment. The trailing image is visible a lot more often even when ULMB@120 Hz aligns with a rate of 120 frames per second.
  • ulmb on the desktop does result in similar strobe crosstalk effects like in games.
  • No difference in Diablo 3 on the Acer compared to the Dell, I start to suspect the reason could be related to how the game produces frames. But with the Acer I notice strobe crosstalk when you move the pointer in the game. It is actually visually different than the double image you usually have.
  • Like with the Dell, pixel overdrive is disabled in ULMB mode.
  • I cannot see any backlight bleeding (black image fullscreen, dark room) sitting in front of the monitor.
  • There is no vertical interlace effect on scroll movements in browsers of movements in first person games

[...]
.

I have bought the XB271HUA. Same thing as the XB271HU except it has a TN panel. There is no perceptible strobe crosstalk in ULMB@120Hz for me compared to the Dell S2716DG. So I decided to keep this Acer XB271HUA.

There is a slight clouding effect like with the Dell but since I got this Acer cheaper at Amazon I will keep it because this fact mitigates this particular flaw. This dark clouding effect seems to be quite a common problem with tft lcds. I checked several other monitors around here and most of them have it in one or the other intensity. I think I take a look inside of an old one and see what it is just out of curiosity and maybe try this or that to see what helps and what not.

Backlight bleeding seems to be common. Does not mean you need to accept this.
Misaligned panel should not be acceptable neither.
RMA it unless you can live with it after you paid the full price for a defective device.

Well there seems to be 0 backlight bleeding, only ,, side bleeding** (not sure what*s the correct word to describe this).

Might do video later.

Lol, I also noticed that half of my screen flashes white for a second before passing bios logo at pc startup. Does not seem to affect overall usage in desktop and games.
