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

Thanks for the reply, I believe they are completely different Quick Start and Deep Sleep. Is you build date November 2015 as well? Thanks!

Can confirm there is no Quick Start or 144Hz option on my panel. Can anyone confirm the disappearance of 144hz from the OSD OC options?

How are you guys finding the uniformity on this monitor so far?
I'm currently using an XB270HU that is quite decent (backlight bleed is not quite perfect but good enough to not bother me, no dead pixels, no dust trapped) but the uniformity is mediocre and it bothers me sometimes... but I'm honestly not sure whether to return it and keep waiting until 271 is available.

Would love to hear some of your opinions.

Received my 7th XB1 today this time from Frys. It's another October build. But, this one is FINALLY a keeper. No dead or stuck pixels or dust. Minimal BLB in corners and uniformity is acceptable to me. Using Zerocool's settings from earlier in this thread, brightness at (EDIT) 30. In my display settings the refresh rate only goes to 144hz, no option for 165. Doesn't matter to me, I leave it at 120hz, but it is a bit strange. I'll research later, probably an option in the monitor menu I'm missing. I'm just SO happy to finally get a screen without dead or stuck pixels. I prefer a warmer white, I may cool it down after a bit. The photo of the white uniformity looks worse than how it actually is. It doesn't bother me at all. I am using my display port cable, I haven't checked to see if the HDMI port works or not, and I'm kind of scared to try it when everything else is great so far. I'll head to Frys sometime soon and purchase a warranty just in case. What a relief. biggrin.gif

Did you turn on Over Clock in the OSD? It's set to off by default but turn it on and it will allow you to choose 150,155,160, and 165Hz options afterwards Apply and Reboot and the option should show up in Nvidia control panel and the Info. tab in the display OSD.

That did it, thank you. Also I'm running with brightness at 30, not 40, edited my original post. Played some F1 2015 and am loving this monitor.

Your uniformity is not that bad, it wouldn't bother me. You run the risk of getting a worse panel with the XB1 it is still a lottery. The one I just posted about w/ photos is my 7th XB1. It isn't 100% perfect in terms of uniformity either but it doesn't bother me at all. Keep your almost perfect screen and don't look back is my opinion. Only you can decide whether or not you can live with it. What I find to be acceptable may not be acceptable by others' standards.

Better photo of white uniformity on my XB1 taken with my cheap Nikon camera compared to cell phone video screen capture.

Thanks for the feedback. From that photo yours looks noticeably better than mine, but what you actually see may be different. I've also definitely seen much, much worse than what I have right now.
Thankfully the uniformity issues mainly show when displaying solid colors on large areas, so it's not that bad in most situations. Don't exactly need a professional quality panel for web browsing, although I would prolly notice it sometimes when running some retro emulators (SNES, GBA) or watching anime.

I never expected a perfect screen to begin with though, so I'm leaning towards keeping this one. It's good enough to make me hesitate whether to return it, unlike my previous 3 screens (1 XB270HU and 2 PG279Q), and I don't want to return a ton of monitors anyway. I keep having second thoughts, but they'll probably go away soon enough.

Yeah, the two PG279Q's I tried had awful uniformity. How much longer do you have to return the XB270HU? If the XB1 gets re-stocked soon you could always order one and compare them side by side.
