White just doesn't seem to be 'Bright white'. I have been using Dell Ultrasharps at work all day maybe that's why i'm variations in colour lol

The Acer still has the edge over the Dell that's for sure.

EDIT: I've just started playing around with RGB on the OSD and the white is improving but only when G levels are turned down below 90%. Will that cause any issues?

If you are living in US and you can wait 29 days, i would return this Acer and give a try to Viewsonic-xg2073-gs.
Then, you will have the choice.

Lmaooooo

I have managed to improve it by significantly lowering RGB settings in the OSD and installing an ICC Profile submitted here earlier.

R:88 G:83 B:100

Whites are a fair bit whiter now and the yellow tint has almost gone.

I love my 780T. The only thing this case do not have is PSU shroud. If Corsair would offer this- I would have 100% perfect case. It is 95% perfect for me now biggrin.gif

Good luck with your XB

Does everyone have it?

The right hand edges of the screen are pure white, but the middle section is brown / yellow tinted.

I'm on the 5th monitor (none of them XB271HU though, since it's not available yet here) and all 5 monitors had some kind of color variance. The last one is better than the others but still noticeable. I don't think it's something you can get rid of with these monitors.

If it's significant enough to bother you, and you have other issues such as BLB, I'd consider returning it, but there's still a chance you could get a worse one.

Well I got it all setup but the display port cable it came with is showing "no signal" on my 770. Hdmi works.

this question is also for people who own the acer/asus pg279q and also have or had a tn 144hz monitor and play games like cs:go/quake competitively, is the difference in motion blur/reponse time noticeable at all ?

You can notice the lowered input lag, the buttery smoothness also makes it near impossible to see ghosting, in quake or ut your score will rise by about 15% by a single 60hz to 144hz change. Tested for days using same max bot difficulty in ut3 instagib, with TN 144hz panels. stoogietheotaku is my youtube

Cheers. Yes even though i have some fairly minor BLB on the right and white uniformity isnt the best but has been greatly improved with the settings i posted above, it's still the best gaming monitor i have owned and i've been through a lot of them recently. I am about 80% sure i'm going to keep it.

I setup the Dell S2716DG again last night for good measure and i definitely prefer the Acer.

As i have put the R and G gains down to below 90%, i'm hoping it wont saturate / wash out colours too much. Not noticed a change in normal use yet.

My current one has subpar uniformity (slight green tint on the right side of the monitor, but a fair bit better than the previous one in that regard), a single dead green subpixel on the top right area (since it's not in the central area it doesn't really bother me), and practically no BLB. Also leaning towards keeping it since I doubt I can get a panel that has uniformity I'd consider "good" anyway with these monitors.

I just use the Normal setting, works well for me.
