Thanks (also @musikos). That means I can't use/load musikos' profil (or any other), right?

Finding the right settings is very confusing for me because everyone seems to use different ones (because every monitor seems to be different) and everyone has different preferences. I was so hoping that there would be some kind of ideal. Well, now I probably have to figure it out myself. Nevertheless I will try your settings. Thanks!

Actually that's not true... the color profile can be loaded by Windows without owning a calibration device or software. @jlp0209 was just saying you can't run calibration software (i.e. the software that reads your screen and determines the optimal settings for your specific panel) without the device.

You're right that there is no ideal setting, since each panel behaves a little differently. Based on what I've seen, brightness is way high by default, panels have varying amounts of yellow tint to them, are on the warmer side (~6000-6400K) and have a slightly messed up gamma (darks are lighter than they should be). Here's my suggestion for fixing stuff:
  • Reduce brightness to 25-30 to get close to 120 nits brightness, maybe a little higher if your room is really bright
  • Switch color temp to User, reduce the green to 90-96 depending on how yellowish the screen is. My screen is pretty close to white, so I only reduced mine to 96.
  • If you've adjusted the green but the screen still looks too warm (reddish/brown), you can lower red & green a bit more to make the whitepoint cooler (ex. reduce both red and green by 2-3).
  • To fix the gamma (optional), you'll have to try downloading someone else's color profile... ideally, the person is using settings similar to what you think looks good (based on the above suggestions) because then you might have similar panels.

The gamma isn't that far off, so I personally wouldn't bother with the last step since your luck will vary without having a colorimeter of your own to make the proper fix. The other problem is the color correction profile isn't always enabled; many games in full screen ignore it altogether, though there are ways to force it. But like I said, the gamma is already good enough so this step is sort of unnecessary anyway.

Well, I'm guessing by all the latest posts and pictures that Acer actually did improve their QC on this model, maybe Assus will follow now...

Hi All,

Just received my first Acer XB271HU. And looks like I'm not the lucky one frown.gif
Here are some photos. What are your thoughts about it?

Brightness = 30

Is the BLB at the bottom left visible in normal usage? I had that exact same location on an Asus I tried and it was visible all the time. Otherwise, all of our photos make these monitors look pretty awful, lol. I would say if you can't see the BLB while using the monitor normally you should think about keeping it. I say "think about" because it would really bother me, honestly, yet an exchange could be worse. My current XB271HU has BLB but I can't see it under normal usage even on all black backgrounds. I otherwise have no dust or bad pixels, so if that's you as well, you did get lucky. IMO dead and stuck pixels are a much bigger issue with these monitors. If you have a perfect pixel panel, you should consider keeping that sucker.

Actually BLB on the bottom left is not bothering me. I found it only on the photo first and now I can find it only on black screen. I'm more worried about right bottom corner. It doesn't look suspicious on these photos but during usual activities it looks noticeably brighter than others. And as I understood it is IPS Glow.

Eh, I see orange in the photo, more like BLB in my opinion vs silver IPS glow. Right at the tip of that corner it does look pretty bright though, regardless. As I said if you can notice it during usual activities it is an auto return in my opinion.

In real life I don't see any orange. It just looks more silverish in bottom right corner. And it changes when I change point of view. But thanks for your opinion! I will keep it for couple days before contacting Amazon to see how it goes. Will it disturb or not wink.gif

i'm really curious in regards to this monitor and I have some dilemma which I hope I can get a couple of inputs from you guys.

So i recently bought one of the korean monitor 2795qhd and have been extremely please with it for its price and performance.

Now i'm thinking of going to dual set up and wondering.

Between these 2 - XB271HU vs 2795QHD and whether I should go for the one that is more expensive.

1. Is there a huge different in terms of the picture/color quality ?
2. Major difference will be 144Hz vs 96 Hz (at a minimum refresh rate) and the G-Sync module yeah?
3. Height adjustable / tilt-able / rotatable which can be fix with a vesa mount.


I'm just wondering why do you go for XB271HU instead of one of the korean one for its much cheaper price point ?

I have the 2795QHD oced to 100hz, some can get as high as 110, so anywhere between 100-110hz you should be able to get. Aside from it not being 144hz and not having Gsync its as good if not better than the Acer in terms of image quality. For $300 ($500 less than the Acer) makes it an absolutely killer deal. I got really lucky with mine having no bleed, and the IPS glow was minimal out of the box. If there is any bleed its very easy to open the monitor up and loosen the metal frame so it doesn't pinch the panel to create bleed.

144hz is great and coupled with gsync really makes it awesome, but is it $500 more awesome? Hell no!

+R Malinkadink well said! ... But I'd argue you were not "lucky" as most of the 2795's come with NO BLB and very minor (LG) IPS glow! I also tried the PG279 (basically same AUO panel as the XB271) and compared side by side to my Koreans, and it looked pretty bad even if you could swallow the +$500 premium for G-Sync and a "diminishing return" +24Hz-44Hz refresh rate redface.gif

This is not my pic (LINK), but it shows exactly what the 279 looks like compared to both my LG/Samsung overclockable panels wink.gif
@clause ... be careful, if you put the AUOptronics panel next to your LG you may have the same reaction I and many others had redface.gif

Typical AUOptronics on the left and typical LG/Samsung on the right ... SAME CAMERA / SAME LIGHTING!

silvery is glow, not BLB - you cannot change it
and it is very normal that the glow changes depending of you sitting point (point of view)

So if you are able to watch a movie like Prometheus without disturbing light spots, everything is fine.


@n1cares

sure you can replace the original Acer driver with my profile
just do it and change a bit in the RGB section as you like
Have fun!

@ does anyone have an idea what for is the axle adjustment? Because the complementary colors are normally mixed out of RGB and also in calibration I see no need to touch it???????
