25% refund, beats 100% sitting on a monitor they can't resell used and possibly get shafted on with the manufacturer.
It's actually nice to see amazon come up with an alternative to questioning multiple returns, sending somewhat threatening emails, and closing peoples accounts. Of course they've gotten to a position of power where most people will praise their customer service and ignore the nasty side as if it doesn't exist.

They are definitely learning the hard way with enthusiasts in a market where people pay a premium for high quality and high quality control products, not "acceptable". Look at how many returns to amazon have came from people on this forum in this thread alone. I don't think acer is going to be the one to swap all those out and amazon for sure isn't looking to take a loss.

Those who bought their monitors should wait at least 3 weeks before deciding to return/exchange if the only problem it has is bleeding and glow. Dont even need to wait that long if you run the monitor 24/7 for a week, that ought to be ample time for it to settle.

This is actually a VERY interesting situation, BLB is gone after weeks of usage?

I only had minor BLB at bottom right and it is mostly gone. Surprisingly as well, the IPS glow has dumbed down or I am getting used to it that it does not bother me on black backgrounds. Especially Ass Creed Syndicate intro screens or BLOPS 3 intro screens are perfect to test how you feel about BLB / Glow. For me both seemed to either have reduced or I am not noticing it anymore.

Panel is fantastic to be honest and I can never game again without gsync and love the 165 fps in games that work (e.g., BLOPS 3).

I've recently got my monitor. It was supposed to be in stock later in the month but I got it a little earlier. Since this is my first IPS monitor I'm not quite sure about all of this. Here are some pics with the Acer on the left and my old Samsung TN on the right.

30 Brightness

100 Brightness

100 Brightness



It looks decent to me. The light spots change slightly depending on the viewing angle and top right is the only one that stands out a bit more. But it looks more silver than orange and I don't notice it during regular use. It's a November Build btw.



So a few questions:
Where do you guys adjust colors? The only thing I can find in the OSD is called 6-axis color and it has RGB + yellow, magenta and cyan with standard values of 50. People here seem to post settings around 100 just for red, green and blue.
Also what exactly does sRGB Mode do?

The other thing I don't understand is overclocking. Using the OSD options doesn't change anything. The panel just restarts with the 120Hz I had set earlier. When I try to set a custom resolution in the Nvidia Control Panel, then the screen just turns off as soon as I set it to 121Hz.
Am I missing something here? Or is my panel just **** and can't even get 144Hz? There is no option for 144 in the Nvidia Control Panel. Is there for you?

What's wrong with these monitors not being available to Europe ??? It's couple of months since release and there were only few pieces in stock and now all are gone.... Where are December and January units? Strange...
post #3606 of 7724
There are monitors available on multiple sites in Germany now.

I have had my October build of the xb271hu for almost 2 months now and I am so far very pleased. The BLB is still there but has been reduced in strength. I have also decreased brightness to 35 (from 45) so that has helped as well. As I never play in a completely dark room I almost never see the BLB even when playing dark games.

I have the issue that most people tend to have with the power button problems but I have learned to live with it and press the button 1-2 times on average to start/turn off the montior.

On my "to do list" is to remove my ICC profile and try to calibrate the monitor as closely as possible by using DisplayCAL (formerly known as dispcalGUI) to eliminate the need to provide ICC profiles when ordering Prints. If I have understood it correctly, games often ignore ICC profiles so getting the monitor itself as close as possible to correct enhances how colors behave in games.


Here is my post from December:

Panel looks good, that might be some BLB on the top right like you said, but it isn't that pronounced at lower brightness which is good.

To adjust colors, go to Colour Temp, select User, then click the button to dive further into options... it'll display the RGB gains that you can adjust. I wouldn't bother with the 6 channel thing.

If you set the overclocking to "off", do you get the option for 144Hz again in NV control panel? I think you need at least a GTX 960 to get overclocking to work. Also, I think I read that there are some graphics cards that for whatever reason only run this monitor at 120Hz. It has something to do with it using G-Sync v2 module (has HDMI added). One person was complaining that the XB270HU worked better for them because it would run at 144Hz, whereas the 271HU wouldn't.

Interesting, thanks. I tried out a bunch of things again. Still no 'official' 144Hz option. I did manage to OC it to 121Hz but 122 is too much apparently -_-
My graphics card is a 770, so I doubt that it doesn't have enough rendering power for higher refresh rates. I also tried a smaller resolution but that doesn't change anything. Could be some weird compatibility thing I suppose. I'll look into it.
That would of course be yet another reason to get a new card. I was strongly considering to buy one anyway. And if the refresh rate thing can be fixed that way, I'd definetely keep the monitor.
