post #3301 of 7664
The only change that i kept was lower brightness to 40. I am not using any color profiles.

Puzzling it happened on my friend's 1st macbook as well. My motherboard BIOS is UEFI. Video card is Asus GTX 970 STRIX. Supposedly Asus broke some manufacturing standards so many people have had issues with their display port, not just with Acer monitors but other brands as well.

- Asus forums
- Nvidia forums
- Nvidia forums with Nvidia response - black screen issue, not display port not working at all

Still odd it did not work on my friend's first macbook but then worked on his 2nd macbook and his win10 PC. That being said, if it was something as stupid as his macbook overwriting some setting in the monitor or whatever I really don't mind. It works.

I'm extremely interested in moving from a Benq Xl2411Z to this. Did anyone make a similar move and could tell me how it went? I play competitive CSGO mostly.

Thanks!

did anyone here install the drivers that come with this monitor? just curious. mine work fine and can OC to 165hz np tho i do have certain issues with certain games as i have a 1080p 60hz secondary monitor. will installing the drivers help or improve?
post #3305 of 7664
I was actually wondering about firmware as well, will Acer release updated firmware for this monitor? Did they for the original XB?
post #3306 of 7664
They released a bunch of different rev XB270HU last being the 165hz models. The 165hz model is the same as every other 270 its just an updated firmwarethat makes then capable of 165hz.
You wont be able to update firmware its done in factory what you have is what you are stuck with.

Purchased a new XB271HU through a seller (RackGo) on Amazon for $750 on 18 Jan. Got it today. No dead pixels and dismal light bleed. Really happy with it coming from a Dell U2310 on a EVGA GTX980 Ti Classified. I immediately loosened the rear screw on the panel (after reading about how it's over tightened and affects light bleed) before I turned it on. The ONLY issue was the plastic outer cover of the stand neck was cracked at the base. Doesn't affect the structure or stability, but it's killing my OCD. I contacted Acer and they say they'll send me a new one.

I would have done the same thing.

The drivers only contain the identification and a default ICC profile. They are not required for any functionality.

I had a BenQ XL2420G, few ASUS PG279Q, few Acers and now a Dell S2716DG and while the "IPS" (AHVA) models are great general use monitors they have their bad sides as well. For the FPS genre I found that the motion blur was high on the Acer/ASUS without ULMB. On the Dell ULMB is nice, but not really required. BenQ in comparison was just really bad, even with the firmware tweaks and in either of the modes (it has a "Classic" mode and G-SYNC). It is older technology, however.

I've settled for the Dell, since it's TN and I have a calibration device. I just couldn't stand the BLB on AHVA and the excessive glow. Without good colour profiles and ReShade to correct for insane gamma I wouldn't really keep it. Some people don't like the gamma and colour shifts, but since I've been always on fast TNs I got used to it, I guess. So it's a hard choice and a matter of preference. You have to weight all the good and bad sides. There is no perfect monitor, until we get OLED to take off wink.gif

I'm running into a really weird issue with my panel. When I have a window up on that monitor, it leaves a burned in image on the screen when I close the program/window. My whites look noticeably less bright too. This seems like a panel issue? I havent had this problem before today. Pictures below.
