Got any pics Xeby?

This is a screenshot of a video, so it is pretty accurate representation of the bleed I am seeing with the naked eye. This is during the day to with a fair amount of ambient light, I imagine it will be more pronounced when dark.

Thanks for the information PCM2 I will keep that in mind when my next XB271HU arrives from Amazon.de. Next one should arrive sometime at the end of this week. I really hope I get lucky this time as it will be the sixth monitor I try the lottery with.

3 Faulty PG279Q's all a lot of backlight bleed, 2 panels with dust.
1 XB271 (november) with bad backlight bleeding and desyncing display halves
1 XB271 (octobre) with 1 stuck purple pixel 5 pieces of dirt and 2 smudges on the screen and backlight bleeding of course smile.gif

I ordered one through the amazon marketplace but it's not worth it to gamble if you have to pay for shipping. Additionally it cost 36 euro to send it back to germany which the vendor said they would cover but still I would rather avoid it.

Not cool man. Is the glow yellowish too? I'd probably send that back to be honest. The bottom right glow is unacceptable

Yeah, that's what I was leaning towards. Thing is this is my 4th XB271HU with problems. I think after this I'm going to give up, its not worth the mental toil of going through this process so many times... There aren't really any better options at this time either, which sucks but I think I have to wait a year or something for different monitors to be available. This really seemed like the best option out of everything available at this time and it has failed me so many times already...

I also play twitch/fast shooters, and the XB1 is fine for me. If you are super competitive, like play in tournaments, you can't get any better than tn. I have used both, and the 144hz ips screens are good enough, but probably not what I would pick if I was playing competitively on a team.

I will say the difference felt pretty minimal overall.

If I were to go TN, personally I would probably try for a good PG278Q for gysnc.

If you want to send back under DSR, you have to pay your own return postage and it wont be cheap for something so big. That plus no delivery service will insure a monitor against accidental damage during transit. The biggest issue with the PG279Q's for me was unacceptable IPS glow and backlight bleed. If it wasnt for that i would have loved it.

The pixel inversion on this Dell is very noticeable for me and ruins overall immersion. That and like you say the grainy coating is somewhat annoying. When i go to work and use a pair of Dell Ultrasharps, i come home and i really notice how washed out TN is. I paid £440 for it so also not a bad deal but nowhere near as good as £99....wow! Does yours suffer from pixel inversion too? Some people say they don't see it.

I'm trying to decide aswell with my rog swift, panels quite similar, medium coating, pixel inversion, tn (76% compared to 81% adobe) colors, i do digital art and game design should i sell it and try to buy one of these acers or is it not worth it.

Give it a few weeks at least before returning if you have glow. Mine is almost gone and i've had it for just over a month. Do you plan on staring at a black screen all day and not playing games or watching movies:rolleyes:

When in use i see no glow or blb at all, only on a black screen.

It's undoubtedly a nice monitor if you get a good sample and I think from what you've said you could enjoy it more than your S2716DG. So it's up to you really, but I reckon having to juggle with lots of returns and organising return postage (and possible insurance) yourself is far from ideal.

And yes, I'm with you on the inversion artifacts. They are a pain. For me personally that plus the grainy matte screen surface would lead me to prefer a good XB271HU sample for my own personal enjoyment. I wouldn't enjoy one with bad backlight bleed though. Having said that I plan on keeping this S2716DG that I'm reviewing, for now at least. I got it for £99 due to a pricing error so I'm hardly going to return it. wink.gif
Have you seen the members in this thread sharing the emails/mail they receive from amazon?

That return system is great until you receive a few DOA products back to back and the calculations used show your account is -% profit margin and you either receive a letter questioning your returns, asking you to stop, or a notice of account closure. With the dozens of members in this thread alone returning these monitors to amazon, it's not as simple as using the automated system and taking for granted you can avoid shipping fee and restocking fee. Amazon can't ship those panels to acer and ask for NIB panels to replace them. This will add up very quickly, especially on expensive computer parts. Imagine receiving three super low QC inspected panels, returning them through this great "system" and receiving a letter either questioning your returns or demanding that you stop rolleyes.gif , your experience after this point will rely on how much you buy/return before this situation because it can end up pretty ugly.
