It isn't that I don't agree with you, but I already tried a 2nd one, and that came with even more... So I just ain't feeling it. Although the monitor has gone down £50 more on that site now. I'm waiting for the 2nd one to be picked up and refunded. I have like 14 days left before I have had this one for 30 days, so I have a bit of time to try another one if I want. To be honest i;ve got to go see a neurologist and this screen stuff is really stressing me out, which is why I am just sitting on it atm.

Hope all is well, definitely wouldn't stress about it too much. Out of curiosity, does Acer do RMAs under warranty for a certain # of dead pixels? If so, you could just keep it and if it gets worse over time, initiate RMA. Though you could (likely?) end up with a panel that has BLB problems instead. I don't think they call that a defect.

Just got my new monitor. I'm thinking I struck out unfortunately.

Thread Starter 
Got my 4th XB271 and I have ONE RED STUCK PIXEL right in the middle of screen.

Nothing else wrong with it.

I have either the worst luck in planet or there are no good units out there.

That is my 4th XB and 8th AUO panel in total (returned 4 PG279Q before).

Gonna try to run some stuck pixel fix program for couple of hours.....

but really.....mad.gif

So what's the consensus so far... XB271 better odds than XB270? Initial optimism was high, but I'm seeing some shocking pictures lately. Still very much a lottery it seems. I'm waiting on Amazon UK getting it (fulfilled by them), as I know I won't have any issues with return that way.

I lucked out with only 1 try. I am sure that compared to the XB270 this one has better odds even with all the recent bad luck parade that has been going on. For the XB270 the bad luck parade never finished and I know one of my friends already tried 2 of those before ordering the XB271.
