Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 356

post #3551 of 7721
So... after almost destroying my monitor I put it back together with some minor changes. I've added some separators where the BLB spots were and adjusted screws in the corners with lesser force than those in-between corners. So far it looks the same as without the frame, more tests tomorrow when it'll get warm again. What a day wink.gif

Which retailer is that?

My local Polish retailer. I am special case since I have already returned 6 monitors to them. 2 others to another retailer.

Well, lets say that lottery is being played by itself smile.gif. I just from time to time take 10 min to examine monitor and send it back next day if I find defects tongue.gif. I pretty much totally lost hype or any sort of.... emotions towards getting this monitor so I am just living my everyday live and somewhere there in galaxy far far away my lottery is still going on. LOL.

I need new monitor and since CES 2016 is over I highly doubt we will see any new gaming monitor panels till 2017. I still have hopes that LG or Samsung will developed their own panels instead of buying from stupid AUO but we will see.

There is always the view sonic model that is coming. I think they use their own panel tech.

Yea, but their estimated price tag is thus far- riddiculous

For those of you with the "Quick Start" option, have you noticed that when enabled and you resume from sleep the desktop resolution has changed? I find all my icons rearranged to a lower resolution and clustered on the top left. I turned off "Quick Start" and the desktop resolution is 2560x1440 when I resume from sleep. (Maybe this is the reason why Acer removed this silly option?)

Where did you read that ? I'm pretty sure they are just buying the same panel made by AUOptronics and will have the same issues as all the current IPS 27" 1440p 144hz monitors (Asus pg279q, mg279q, acer xb270hu, xb271hu, eizo fs2735) unless ViewSonic make's their own panels which I really doubt that they have their own panel fab since they use AUO's 144hz 1080p tn panels on their other gaming monitors.

trying to find the article, it was from CES I believe. It will use and 'IPS type' panel using clear view technology. Could be wrong I guess... But why would it cost $200 to $300 more if it has the same panel as the XB and PG.

'IPS type' might mean AHVA, which is in all the monitors mentioned before wink.gif

What I'm interested in is 'SuperClear'. Maybe they added a A-TW filter? One can only hope tongue.gif

Clear view technology is probably some marketing word for it being IPS(AHVA) or maybe some gimmicky feature that you can find in the OSD menu? or something like that.

As for the price... well who knows what ViewSonic is thinking.... Eizo priced the FS2735 in europe at 1099 euros meanwhile the Asus pg279q is 849euros and the acer xb271hu is 799euros and the FS2735 is a Freesync monitor so no gsync module cost and feature/specs wise it's not much different from the acer and the asus beside strobing (same technology as ULMB or benq's blur reduction) at 144hz instead of being limited at 120hz and also having 2 free sync modes 1 being 30-90 hz and another 57-144hz.

I really have no idea why Eizo priced it that way considering it uses the same panel as the other ones (confirmed by TFTcentral) and there's no such thing as a "better panels with less issues deal" with AUO. And of course there's also the cheaper MG279Q which lacks strobing feature but mostly same specs/features while being a lot cheaper, but I doubt that strobing at 144hz is worth paying almost double the price lol.

Anyway what I'm saying is don't get your hopes up for the ViewSonic just because the MSRP is $1,217 (taken from viewsonic own website) chances are pretty good it's gonna be the same as the Acer XB270HU/XB271HU or the ASUS PG279Q with just a different design and it will most likely have the same lottery ratio of getting a decent one, but hey maybe I'm wrong who know's we'll see when it releases, imo it doesn't look very promising.

EDIT: I doubt it has a A-TW filter, it's a gaming monitor after all aimed at g4merz, would be nice if it had that though.
