What do you recommend?

Were you using another monitor on the card before you got this one? Do you know that the card works? Also, have you tried the HDMI connection?

I literally just bought this monitor for this new computer and the monitor works on another computer I have and another monitor I have works with the 1080. Every monitor works with the 1080 on hdmi..

This acer just won't work with the 1080... I got to the point where if I set the resolution to 144 it flickers on and off but doesn't stay on.

It sounds like the card isn't detecting the refresh rate of the monitor. Have you tried restarting the computer with the monitor plugged in? Do you have a second monitor you can plug in at the same time the acer is plugged in? That way you can go into nvidia controls and manually change the refresh rate on the acer while it's plugged in.

Anyway, grats on getting one you're happy with!

Yeah, they're all dust specs; they're not regular sized and if I zoom in on the photos I can see they're smaller than a pixel. I've tried exactly that, massaging them out of the display with a microfiber cloth, but no luck. In any case, the monitor I'm keeping also has dust, so I can always keep trying to get rid of the speck on this one (of all three it's the closest to the frame).

The one I'm keeping is really good:

- Virtually no BLB. I'd say it had two barely noticeable spots, I loosened the screw behind the predator logo a bit and one of them was gone (after seeing the Asus PG279Q's, what mattered most to me was the corners and they're all good)

- Uniformity is also really good, can't notice tint in any area of the screen (the Asus PG279Q's were GARBAGE)

- No dead/bright/stuck pixels (I didn't really see any DP's on any of the 3 Asus or 3 Acers)

- I used my Spyder5 calibrator and got it to 65000K spot on with RGB 100/99/100 and 20 brightness on the OSD which is NUTS, I've never seen such good factory colors on a panel. For comparison, on Acer #3 I had to use RGB 94/89/100 (factory settings looked like a dog pissed on the screen) and even then I couldn't get it to hit exactly 65000K.


Really happy with this one, it's probably the closest to perfection I could get

Hi guys!
Finally I get my XB271HU and I don't know if that what I have attached is BLB or IPS glow... It seems that if I move my point of view, it dissapears, but anyway I would like that you give me your expert opinion.

Here it is!



By the way, I have a good white uniformity and 0 DP.

Thanks!

Is there any shortening of the hardware life span by running at 165hz overclock, or should it be fine to leave it at 165hz?

Everything I've read about 165Hz is that it should be fine. It doesn't invalidate the warranty or anything. I think the reason it's considered an overclock is because not all panels will work perfectly at 165Hz, sometimes they fall short by like 5Hz or something. Also, the OC feature only works on the 900-series cards, below that they're limited to 144Hz (or 120Hz in some cases).

So i'm giving this monitor another shot. Set it up and uniformity is pretty good, definitely in the realms of keeping it, bleeding is very minimal especially after loosening the screw in the middle. There is a fairly good amount of glow in the bottom right corner, but i wouldn't say its excessive.

However this now brings me to an issue i did find with the screen. At the very top center edge of the screen there appears to be something stuck between the matte coating/panel if not perhaps its a damaged AG coating. The dot look like dead pixels when the monitor is on, but i can confirm its not as i still see it with the screen off. There is also a dead pixel in the upper right corner, and I also found a small hairline scratch on the screen and i purchased this brand new with the acer sealed tape. It doesn't appear like its a refurb, but i dont like the fact any less after spending close to $800 for the damn thing.

With dead pixels, dust/whatever in the coating, and a scratch I'd exchange it if it's a simple and easy process (if you can still get your money back should problems continue).
