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.

Yes it does look less extreme to the naked eye. I recently just adjusted the brightness from 80 to 30 and i d say the blb is much improved on dark screens. Guess shes a keeper, i wont expect a perfect panel with newer technology. Just need to upgrade my 970gtx scc to a pascal titian and i m ready to feed this darn thing.

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...

can you show me a picture at about 30brightness? maybe you ll regret sending that one in..

See post #3637, pasted the link below.

I posted photos of brightness at 30 right at start up vs. 3 hours run time. Mine does get worse as the monitor heats up. But even then the BLB isn't all that noticeable while using it unless I turn all lights off in my room and view a black background at same time. I've gone through several samples of XB271HU. This one has great uniformity and no dead/stuck pixels or dust. Except for some lingering hot pixels after using the monitor, those can be fixed using JScreenfix or something similar. The weird hot pixel issue is what has me concerned about mine, other ones I've tried also had the issue and regardless of cable plugged into them. Otherwise my current monitor is perfect.

well I've had mine for exactly 1 month and its on about 5 hours per day and gaming maybe half of that. I have to say most of my blb/glow is gone. I'm using 30 brightness and changed nothing else.

Glad to hear you're keeping it, I think that some of it is just typical IPS glow, because after looking at my old IPS that I have in varying environments I noticed that there's some noticeable glow in the bottom right in low to no light situations. I believe the reason I didn't really notice it was 1) I wasn't looking for it, 2) I think the glossy finish actually makes it less noticeable in my opinion.

I think people are being pretty hard on the monitors as far as IPS Glow is concerned. For awhile I was in the same boat, but then I realized that it's not just these monitors. Now I have seen some TERRIBLE examples, I returned a PG279Q for terrible BLB but mostly for uniformity. On the whole, I'd say that anything with unnoticeable BLB and IPS Glow paired with no pixel defects and uniformity issues is a keeper. My XB271HU has some glow but this is to be expected, especially since I sit a bit closer to the monitor than normal

After 250h of it being on mine has settled as well:



In the beginning the BLB was getting worse and very fast at that. After almost destroying my monitor I just let it rest with some paper spacers between the panel and the frame. I'm not sure if that contributed to the BLB getting better or was it just time. All in all I'm quite happy for now wink.gif

I was thinking of getting this one. From where I am, stores should be stocking on the December panels. Any reviews on whether the Dec batches are any good?

mine is about a week old. Panel is flawless besides BLB. i was going to return it, but i was running brightness at 80 which was a mistake. Now that i dropped it to 30 it is hardly noticable.

sorry about the pixel issue. If it is just one pixel maybe it is worth keeping? my old 1080p 60hz acer had like 8 dead pixels. i seriosuly massaged the screen/pixels and 7 went aways and one was left. Not sure if the massage method would help u, do at ur own risk brah.

yeah shes a keeper. i was running brightness at 80 which was not needed and exaggerated the bleed. we will see if time will help it too. shes only a week old.

i have a december batch. i d say the blb is there, but tolerable. panel was flawless otherwise. Out of the box the colors WERE HORRIBLE. ADjust them. I m satisfied with my dec panel. Monitor works amazing in games. it is just a matter of having enough gpu power to take advantage of the hz.. hurry up pascal titans where r u???

This would seem to suggest that this is due to partial lackluster manufacturing tolerances/design. And could also be a symptom of shipping and temperature differences. I know in the winter - right now, when the temp in my pc room goes up i can hear plastics crackling from my keyboard and monitors ect. It can get below 50F in my room without the heat on and once i turn the heat on inevitably i will hear things crackle from the expansion caused by dramatic heat differences.

Just know that in most scenarios BLB can be fixed 100%. Not that you should have to bother with a new panel you just spent 500-1000 dollars on, but such as it is that is the reality. And in the most extreme cases could require being invasive and likely voiding your warranty. Which for most is an intolerable caveat understandably. If i bought one of these new Acers or Asus, and as long as there were no bad pixels or dirt (wth?) under the screen i would just fix the BLB myself and be done with it rather than keep sending monitors back and getting the same thing over and over.

Mine has zero permanently dead or stuck pixels. What I'm talking about are random single "hot" bright pixels that seem to stay lit after powering the monitor on and then displaying a black screen. They go away by massaging them (which creates some more) and by using a stuck pixel utility (eliminates all). They are only visible if I put my eyes very close to the screen and it doesn't happen all the time, way dimmer than the typical permanently stuck pixels I've seen. Really weird.

thanks for the responses. any ICC profiles for adjusting this? planning to get this maybe in 2 weeks. wonder if it will be the Jan manufacturing batch
