I notice some yellow tint like everyone keeps talking about. No dead pixels so far,haven't checked for BLB yet,but I do seem to have some.
Anyway,are there any quick settings I can do before I go mad as my cheap monitor looks better?
By default the brightness is set way too high... if you want to have a standard 120 nit brightness, try setting it to 25-30.

If your whites are looking yellowish, switch to User color mode, and set something like Red:95, Green:90, Blue:100.

You should be able to get nice deep blacks with this monitor, but you might need to lower your brightness for it. Also, I don't know if your AOC is calibrated or not? My suggested color settings would put the monitor somewhere near 6500K color temp, which may look reddish to you if you aren't used to properly calibrated colors. A lot of displays--especially TVs, but some monitors also--have much "cooler" temps where whites look more bluish.

Also, I'd break-in the display by using it for a couple of days, these panels seem to settle down after a few days of use, and gradually get better (but sometimes worse).

I've tried all that before posting here, Both monitors are IPS. The AOC still looks better. The ACER has got a big ******* backlight bleed on the bottom left corner. I'm also seeing uneven uniformity. It's got a yellow tint that shifts towards 'true' white about the last 15% of the monitor to the right.

Edit: What about all the other settings? Is there a guide around ?

Acer on left. Cheap AOC on right

Hi guys.

Just got my Acer XB271HU today and I'm very happy with it.

Haven't noticed any problems at all.

But the standard settings on the monitor are very yellow.

I've tried looking at a couple of forums and a youtube video to get some settings, but I'm still not sure that it looks "correct"


I have every setting at stock except the following

Brightness: 60
Contrast: 50

Colortemp: R90 G90 B100

It still just doesn't seem right. A bit dark maybe.

Should I just get used to it or change some settings?

What are people using as settings on their XB271?

There are no "right" settings unless you are calibrating with a meter to a set standard. Just play around and find a setting that you like.

Taken with a note 5, so not even close to what I see in person. Also, any glow disappears entirely once I am several feet away from the monitor. I don't see any yellowish glow at all in person.



Overall, not having to rely on Vsync any more for smoother framerates and no screen tearing, not being capped to 60FPS, and no input lag is worth the cost. In my experience with my prior IPS 60hz monitor, enabling Vsync to alleviate screen tearing introduced terrible input lag, especially for twitch FPS such as CoD. My only choice was to turn off Vsync, which resulted in terrible and very noticeable screen tearing. This monitor, while maintaining the awesome color of IPS, gets rid of all of that, resulting in excellent color reproduction and extremely smooth gameplay with Gsync/144hz. I will get off my soap box now smile.gif

Plenty of bleed along the top... the entire top, and the bottom somewhat close to the center, and maybe the left side in/near the glowing area. Of course camera exposure makes it worse than it actually is, but it's there. I think the cleanest XB271HU I've seen was CallsignVega's.

This monitor has a single screw that's not even covered by warranty stickers. After getting that out it's simply a matter of popping the back cover with some soft plastic tool since it's only held with latches. I used a bicycle tire removal tool wink.gif

Are there many points where the panel is stressed from the mounting?

Does anyone know if the mount is compatible with dell's quick release like the one pictured here:

again, I don't see any of that what so ever in person, not even close. I wish I had a good camera to show what I really see. This is way over exposed, and is making the IPS glow look yellow, when it is not even there first of all, and if there is any glow at all, it is white/silver.

And the fact that any glow completely disappears when I get a few feet back from the monitor also indicates IPS glow. There are plenty of these out there that don't have yellow BLB.
