Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 366

post #3651 of 7722
I got my original one for christmas from my parents, and we've been replacing them since. I've had to deal with burn in on two models, backlight bleed on all 7, dead pixels on two, dust under the screen, oil behind the LCD, one model was sold new when it was used. Over the December- February periods, I've just had problems.

Pure. Trash.

For over 1000 CAD I would expect more for a premium monitor. I'm so sad because I want a high refresh rate g sync IPS 1440p monitor, and the only two that fits this are a complete joke. I guess I'll wait for an OLED screen in 2-3 years...mad.gif

here is a pic of my Acer Predator XB271HU. the box was labeled with December. I have 0 dead pixels. that i could notice anyways. no defects to the monitor that i m aware of. overclocks to 165hz no issues. Out of the box though my colors were horrible. everything looked blue. i fiddled with the settings and got it to where i m happy. I have pics below of the Blb/glow. the brightness is at 80. these pics are after the monitor has been running for about 6 days now (not straight though, it goes to sleep at night and i do not use it all day.) games look amazing. dark screen have some noticeable BLB. when screens are not dark i cannot notice the blb.

what do you guys think? with this blb is the screen a keeper? other then the blb i have no issues with it.

From my personal experience, I assume that the pictures are a bit overexposed? Also do you intend to run the monitor at 80 brightness, I'm running mine at about 26 right now since I'm typically in a dark room. If you personally are not concerned with the BLB, IPS Glow or anything then keep it. To me that looks like normal glow for the most part, a bit of bleed but not much. Given the lottery, you may want to keep it unless you are just going for a refund and pulling out of the lottery entirely.

You might want to try running the monitor at a lower brightness unless you really want to run at 80.

not sure what you mean by over exposed. i took pics with a regular nothing special digital camera. i ll take your advice and run on lower brightness. really havent tested it on lower brightness. BLB looks better to me in real life. i m not sure. look at the pics:

here is 40 brightness:



here is 30 brightness:



maybe a keeper?

Take a video and then post a screenshot of the video. Are you able to see the bleed on the edges as pronounced with a naked eye? Camera overexposes image. Only video function typically provides the correct view. Can do on your iPhone or any other digital camera. If you can't see the yellow on the right bottom edge in gaming then keep it.

It's REALLY hard with pictures to gauge how bad a monitor really is. I went through 4 of the XB270's myself, all had really bad noticeable bleed, but the pictures I took looked FAR worse, so although they weren't an accurate reflection of the problem, it was still bad enough for me to notice and be a distraction. Ultimately it's in the eye of the beholder though, and if you are happy with it or not. Also if you actually do game in the dark much.

those pictures show a fairly accurate representation of the bleed areas, although a bit more pronounced. i guess this is the overexposure. tonight when it is dark i ll try an get a video. while playing games the bleed is unnoticeable unless there is a black background.

i m leaning towards keeping it because it seems that the lottery has not worked out well for some. i m hoping in the next week or two the bleed gets better.

Dude. Don't be stupid. DEFINITELY KEEP THAT ONE!!
Its like the jackpot if you don't have any dead pixels or dust.
Also your pictures are a bit overexposed, so it should look less extreme with naked eyes.

I would definitely keep it, there's no way that I would return a IPS 144Hz monitor without any dead pixels or dust! I have always bad luck with these monitors, I get dead pixels or dust everytime.

Agree, the photos do more accurately represent the visible BLB on my monitor as well. If I do a video and screenshot it makes it look much better than it is. Which is why I'm convinced that the majority of "good" monitors shown in this thread have more visible BLB than what is shown. Sure there are probably a few gems out there with minimal BLB, though.

This is where I'm at as well. I do have BLB but it isn't visible in regular usage and only barely noticeable in dim lighting and black backgrounds. But, the BLB is still there which bothers me, especially at this price point. 9 days left for me in my return period window...
