Guys, I'm using this garbage cable (the 2m variant, I think it's "version 1" whatever that means, because it's different than in the picture):

http://www.equip-info.net/DisplayPort-Cable/119331/p-1006.htm

Any recommendations for a good DP cable with "slim" connector? (the one included with the XB271HU is too bulky and doesn't fit with my motherboard/case).

Edit: Just ordered this one:

Maybe I'll have to cut the plastic a little to make it fit, no problem there.

Thanks

Also the Acer has narrower bezels if you ever decide to run multiple monitors.

Has Asus done anything about their QC issues? I heard they where now actually opening boxes and checking the displays before sending them out to retailers.

Nothing is wrong with the DP cable in the box. Some people have had random issues. I've been using the DP cable that came with mine since the 1st week of April and have had zero issues.

Yep, sometimes when I reboot there's no signal until Windows' welcome screen, same deal as before. Also one time I was at the BIOS config utility and I lost the signal. So I think these low quality cables (or maybe the monitor?) doesn't really like being out of Windows for some reason. It's not much of a problem because if you want to go to the BIOS config utility and you get no signal, you just ctrl+alt+del until the signal comes back.

So to sum up, these are my theories:

- Fuzzy image problem => it's related to Maxwell cards (GTX 970/980/980Ti), it happens most frequently when coming back from power saving mode, but it can also happen mid-game for example. Since I've been using the GTX 1070 (1 day) I haven't seen the issue creep up again (fingers crossed).

- Flickering/no signal during boot => I think this is due to low quality DP cables (I have to admit the cable I use is some random Chinese one that cost only a few euros). The flickering issue is not really that frequent, it mostly happens a few minutes after turning the monitor on. But a couple of times I've had like 5-6 flickers in a row while playing a game and that was annoying.

So I hope this Accell "DP certified" cable fixes most if not all of these random issues.

alright

after you get the Accell - please report if it stops the flickering and if you ever get the 970/980 "fuzziness" on the 1070 biggrin.gif

About the monitor remaining on no signal when booting up pc, I would say that it is somewhat concerned with the monitor logo startup...So what I do is that when I turn the power on (not the pc just the power to all the system) the monitor powers on and the acer logo comes up and wait till it goes away on no signal and you see orange power led...Then I turn on the pc and I always get a signal and the monitor turns on without any issue...I do not know it is concerned with the the monitor startup...but waiting 2-3 seconds for the monitor to startup does not bother me and Im cool with it, I only posted so someone may be having issues with it....Although if you instantly turn the power on to the pc and turn on it fast you may not always get no signal and the monitor would turn on but likely 40% I get a no signal...Dunno if it is concerned with my GTX690 because it is quite old card or the monitor bootup but I somewhat think it is with the monitor startup...the card runs games 60+ fps like witcher 3 on this monitor, obivously with some lower settings smile.gif Will wait for HBM2...smile.gif

I read that ASUS was doing the manual inspections before shipping to U.S. retailers, but I don't think it's done for other countries. Also, based on what people have said here, the BLB situation is better, but still not great.

Several people on these forums have gone through multiple ASUS & Acer monitors, and from what I could tell they both have similar QC issues. The one thing that the Acer seems to have the advantage in is better uniformity--though still not perfect. The majority of ASUS monitors have a much darker (and yellow?) top 1/3 of the screen. At least one person said the ASUS had less IPS glow.

Thanks for your post, very interesting.

The thing is I NEVER turn off the monitor. I always use standby mode.

The problem is that your workaround can't always work because sometimes I get no signal when I reboot the computer, so I can't turn the monitor on before the system, because it's already on smile.gif.

As I said that "issue" is very minor (more of an annoyance that you have to reboot until you get signal), what I don't like is the random flickers, I hope to fix that with the new cable.
