Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 335

post #3341 of 7797
Just got mine yesterday. I ordered from b&h where I get all my video stuff, I looked and they had it in stock so I jumped on it. Acer monitor box came inside the box its sitting on in pic. thumb.gif The monitor is perfect, no dead pixels or backlight bleeding.. Acer box was sealed , as well as everything else inside the box.. Brand new, never opened. I Just looked at the back of the monitor and it is an October build. I always worry when I order monitors, I am super happy that there is nothing wrong with it... thumb.gif

Sounds like it has a slightly revised firmware... could you check something for me? When you enable ULMB mode, does it automatically turn off pixel overdrive and prevent you from changing the OD setting? Also, when ULMB is turned on, do you get any bad ghosting on the testufo website? It seems like the backlight strobe isn't tuned very well, so you can see frame transitions from about halfway down the screen to the bottom.

Give me about a couple of hours and I'll run that test for you. Having to jump on a conference call for work so I am not able to do it this moment.

I did want to go ahead and share this picture, I'm not quite sure if it's a dead pixel anymore, I think it's a dust spec.. I used a magnifying glass and took this picture:



Yes, I'm that OCD.

To the other posters who recently received their monitor does the "Quick Start" option show up in your monitor OSD? The one I received today also does not have it as an option which is strange to me because I clearly remember seeing this option on the 2 previous units I had upon start-up. So far so good though the one I received today has no dead/stuck pixels or any type of debris on the inside of the monitor. Won't be able to accurately determine how the BLB or IPS glow is till later tonight once I can get my room completely dark but from the short test I did with just closing the blinds it seems minimal. Going to get some gaming done now and see if this one will randomly go black screen.

I could be wrong but I thought I read that the October models have the quick start option in OCD while the November models do not. Also the October model has IPS In-Plane Switching on the bottom left of the monitor while November has two GSYNC stickers.

Mine is October build and the IPS in-plane switching is on the bottom left of the panel not the right. Just fyi..

Hmm very strange! I remember my first Nov. model had the Quick Start option but then it completely disappeared as a choice in the OSD sometime during my first week of ownership and that's when the random black screen started. The 2nd Nov. build I receive today did not have it at all so if its normal now then I won't worry about it. I just want to make sure it's not a setting in my PC or GPU that could be causing the issue of Quick Start not showing.

interesting, why would they take it out? Mine is October as well, has IPS in lower left. Have not tried quick start.

Welp finally got mine this evening and it has one dead pixel lower left about mid screen. Amazon inventory is under review they offered a refund but scared I won't find another for awhile or get one worse off....

People asking about quick start mine doesn't have it but it does have an option to disable/enable deep sleep I wonder if that is similar
