Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 566

post #5651 of 7842
I bought mine from newegg and its great except there's a green stuck pixel that's in the center of the screen which can only been seen on dark/black backgrounds. Would you guys recommend I try and exchange it?

In my opinion, dead/stuck pixels should be returned or exchanged. You should have no problems returning it to Newegg as it is a manufacture defect. BLB/ips glow are bit more subjective as some people don't seem to get bothered by it.

So I tore apart the monitor and you can see that the crack is directly behind the front screen. Behind that seems to be in good condition. I'm most likely just going to buy a used XB270HU. I doubt I'm going to find a replacement LCD panel for this. I saw a refurbished XB271HU for $550 a couple days ago I wish I jumped on that, but it's gone now. The good thing about picking up an XB270HU is that I can use the 271 stand with it.

I feel like an idiot though. I let a used XB270Hu go to someone who big me up $5 and ended up getting the monitor for $390. If only I remembered to check the auction again.

Booted up my pc this morning and everything was all blurry/pixelated looking, it was like going back to 8 bit era, rebooted and it fixed itself. Not sure if it had something to do with the monitor or my GPU. Power cycling the monitor didn't seem to fix it. Strange stuff....

Hello, I just bought acer xb271hu

besides a dust on the bottom right (hard to find out) i thought it was great

but I just found out that it has yellowish tint on the 1/4 of the left of the monitor

Can you guys see it?

I am debating whether to keep it or not

Your panel looks good to me.

Most panels more or less have some sort of tint to it. While you have a yellow tint on your left side, I have a blue tint on my right. As long as there are no dead/stuck pixels or too much dust, you might wanna keep it because of the highly unreliable monitor lottery. Also, you can get rid of most of the tint by properly calibrating you panel with a hardware calibrator. Once you get your monitor to 6500k white point, I thin, your tint issue will go away for the most part.

There's mine at 100% brightness and roughly around 6500k calibrated. No obvious tinting issues maybe a bit towards the left there, however i do have a dead pixel along the top edge, as well as what appears to be some damage to my matte coating along the top edge as well which also looks like a dead pixel but its not since i can see it with the monitor off. It's not a huge deal really since i never really see them all the way up there, but i also found a small scratch on the screen too which is just odd. If this was a $200 monitor i would just ignore all that, but its a $750 monitor so i'll most definitely be getting it exchanged when i find the time to drive down to the store.

I have been in the same situation, I understand how you feel. When I bought my monitor, the only ting I was worried about was dead/stuck pixel as it clearly shows on the screen. So when I got my panel, I was beyond excited to have ONLY a slight blue tint and not any other defects. I could have sent it back to Amazon (3 times max total) but the replacement could have been worse. I received Jan 2016 batch and many people who got march 2016 batch complained about dead pixels, same with November batch. Even some January batches have dead pixels.

So in that case, I guess I got lucky. At the end of the day, it all depends on your level of tolerance. You paid ~$1000 for a monitor and you deserve a monitor that fits your preference.

P.S. I have the monitor for 1 month, and I can honestly say that after the initial burn-in, the color has improved on my panel. The tint is slowly fading away and color getting more uniform. If you have a calibrator like colormunkidisplay or spyder 5 pro, you can use Displaycal software to test for uniformity.

Good luck and happy testing.

Jesus thanks for this!

Just unboxed the monitor and setup. Could not for the life of me get it to go past 85Hz on a GTX1080 using the supplied cable. Used another cable that came with my 4K LG...works fine....


So yeah people, don't use the shi**y supplied cable...FYI
