Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 398

post #3971 of 7841
Having spent most of today on this monitor, i'm really enjoying it. The extra colour makes games immersive and love the fact there is no pixel inversion / heavy coating on this monitor smile.gif

90% sure i'm going to keep it and sell the Dell.

Just need to find someone who has calibrated OSD / Nvidia settings to make it even better?

Glad to hear you're happy with it. I'm still waiting for Acer to have some review samples in the UK, they're taking their sweet time. smile.gif

I ran the DisplayCal 3.1 with an i1Display Pro.

Monitor Settings:
Brightness 26
Contrast 50

Usermode Colors:
Red: 98

*Note I play games in the dark. So my 120 cdm is for a completely dark room with NO light.

I really cant decide if this monitor is worth the money I paid...

I feel like the fact that I am doubting it I should just definitely return it.

I wish I could find a solid TN panel with the 144, 1440p, gsync, etc that doesnt have a ton of issues.

Not a fan of the PG278Q?

Well all I hear from people about that monitor is terrible QC issues and pixel inversion problems (although I am not sure I would even notice pixel inversion).

I have been looking into the dell TN as well.... I do wish the Swift was a little cheaper. Just because the newer one is out now. If it was 599 like the dell I would go pick it up today but I am finding it at like 650 lowest.

I'll run a dispcal report after I let the monitor burn in a couple days. I'm liking it so far, but I feel like the 165hz mode screws up mouse movement in certain games. Or it's input lag on the monitor.

Does anyone know what the game mode feature does?

Thanks for the comparison. For these pictures did you have the Acer on the default "Warm" color preset? If so, could you upload a picture with it set to normal?
I'm quite worried about the uniformity issues, so far on 2 XB270HUs and 2 PG279Qs I've tested I could not stand the yellow tinted patches.

Nope, it was set to 'User' colour, i'll give you R G B later on when i'm home.

Yes white uniformity isn't the best but it does'nt annoy me enough to want to spend it back. Its better than other panels i have tried (ASUS PG279Q, Dell S2716DG) and i know for a fact there is no such thing as a perfect panel. Sad but true.
