Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 394

post #3931 of 7811
I just got mine from Amazon today and first impressions are favorable. My model is an OCT '15 build, too, so not one of the newer builds. There is a little BLB in the lower right and upper right corner, but it is not noticeable to me at all when gaming or web surfing or whatnot.

How is dual screening on these monitors for gaming? I recently picked up a second one since my first one has two dead pixels and I am not too happy with the BLB so far. Other than that the monitor itself is pretty awesome at 165Hz and colors pop nicely.

Is this a glow at the right side? Why is it so big ?
This Glow is noticeable when you play or watch a movie ?

Horrible. If my monitor looked like that when I stare on it, it would go straight back.

If you don't want to keep it fine, but I strongly encourage you to give it a fair shot and I think it will suit your needs.

Cheers mate

Cheers dude.

Definitely considering keeping it as my gaming monitor over the Dell.

Although the bottom glow / blb is noticable on a black background, i don't really see it in any other use so i might be able to live with it. Unfortunately in this market you have to settle for defects but the question is what defects you are prepared to put up with.

The colour gain, extra refresh rate and no pixel inversion is winning me over so far.

I'm going to do a side by side comparison with the Dell shortly so ill post it on here and you guys can have a look and let me know your thoughts too.

Still interested to see which route you go ;p
I measured it(with pictures) and its no different to the rog swift stand in the amount of distance protruding in from the monitor, its just more to the sides. In fact it should be better for 440mm mousepads like i use cause itll hold the top of the mousepad instead of the top side which causes it to slant when you use it.

My speakers are Bose Companion 5's mate. The highest end Bose speakers you can get for a PC. They are decent enough thumb.gif

@ Thanaran

deffintely consider keeping that monitor if the BLB is the only issue. In about 2 weeks i can bet that BLB will be 85% gone. You will love this monitor. Congrats.
