I looked at all your photos you've posted of your XB271. Honestly yours isn't bad in my opinion, photos tend to exaggerate (lack of) uniformity sometimes so my assessment may not be accurate. Yours is typical of the last few XB271s I have tried (and better than mine). Edges of the screen are darker than the rest of the screen. In my case the right side was very noticeable (darker) compared to rest of screen. Yours doesn't look all that horrible. On your photo with MS Word on the screen, there does seem to be some off white / brown tint at the top, may be your photo. Again, I've yet to see an Acer or Asus without some small tint issue on some portion of the screen. If the BLB doesn't bother you it's a keeper I'd say. You have to pick your poison- you could exchange this one and get one far worse uniformity and/or BLB. And don't forget about dust and pixels issues, etc. All things considered, yours is pretty good assuming the BLB isn't visible during use.

Could someone with a newer XB271HU (Dec or Jan model) test ULMB on their monitor, using the testufo site (particularly the Alien Invasion one meant to test strobe)?

I am curious if Acer has improved their firmware since launch, and hopefully better tuned their strobe, because on my Oct model, ULMB mode is pretty unusable; I see the double image / cross-talk pretty clearly from the middle of the screen down. I figure that the slower response time of IPS is partially to blame, but the 1/5th of the screen that is clear is high up on the screen, rather than towards the middle.

I also wonder if the PG279Q was better tuned, because on the TFT Central review, they mentioned that the cross-talk was less evident in the middle of the screen.

From what I've experienced with mine, if the uniformity issue is there, I'm not able to see it. I guess PG279Q was so bad that everything else is perfect in comparison. I will check again in a couple weeks when I visit home from college

I know you guys, you are all perfectionist and want the best screen monitor without any flaws
If someone keep returning like 3/4/5 monitors in a row in order to get the minimal backlight bleeding/glow, how justifying our own behavior?
I admit i returned myself my last monitor, Z35 for only some reasons not really related with bleeding/glow: slower response time and lack of high resolution
If i have too much bleeding/glow, i dont expect to keep returning and order new one until i get decent one
I will just move on and back on TN, at least i will never meet such inherent issues
Perfect display technology still doesn't exist, each type of panel, each screen monitor has its own issues
Make the best choice for you and dont ruin web shop too much, 2 returns must be the limit

heh, it turns out it was due to windows enabling "enhanced cursor precision" and my game config getting reset with rawinput defaulting to 0. Feels fine at 165hz so far smile.gif

I disagree. We spend too much money for a monitor only for it to arrive with a defect. IPS glow is normal and varies from panel to panel but bleeding, dead pixels and dust under the coating are defects due to poor manufacturing. If we tolerate defects, manufacturers will not have the motivation to improve. $800 is too much money to accept any defect in my opinion. I see these monitors reviewed by reviewers. How many times do we see these glaring defects?, rarely since these are probably hand picked samples and sent out. My neighbor bought a monitor and it was defect free but mine was defective. Should I then give up? I think not. I will also not go to a TN panel just because QC is not being done properly. Sometimes it may take more one or two units to find a good sample and any seller that puts a two return limit on me will never get my money. All manufacturers should stand by their products and if they want us to accept some defects here and there then they should charge less for that product. A premium price deserves a premium product.

I know the perfect panel doesnt exist. The issue is that no-ones monitor is the same and there are people oput there who get better panels than others. That makes those who didnt get a good one believe there is something wrong with theirs and they try again.

I did notice brown / yellow patches on a white screen last night when using mine, but i'm undecided if its enough to return it knowing there is no perfect panel.

Using my Dell U2515H's at work now, white is better than the Acer but its not a gaming panel.

OWNERS - How white is your white? Do you see darker / yellow / brown patches and how is uniformity? This is the biggest issue for me now besides the right hand bleed.

I love everything else, its a great monitor and i'd certainly try for another if that's what i need to do.

I am partially agree
Manufacturers don't have enough quality/control on these monitors.
Its expensive because they know there are still some demands, no matter if its 800$ or above like those 34'' G-Sync displays
I mean they would most likely lower the price if ppl are not looking forward to insta buy it
Literally insta buying.
I couldn't buy one of those monitor due to the amount of demand, it had been out of stock so quickly and ppl kept returning
New buyers like me couldnt make any order
TN are not the worst panel at all, still fastest for gaming, minor bleeding, no glow
The only downsides are viewing angle and contrast/poor colors
post #4020 of 7842
This is not an excuse at all but you don't know how many are trashed at the fab output ... Maybe it's the worst panel ever and they have to face a very poor yield. It would explain the significant price too.
