Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 579

post #5781 of 7811
Can one of you owners of both PG279Q and XB271HU monitors share some experiences regarding AG coating? I've read that PG279Q is having better whites and overall sharpness due to his much lighter AG coating.

I haven't had the chance to try both PG279Q and XB271HU side-by-side but if there's a difference between the coatings it's minimal at best. On the other hand the XB271HU definitely has better whites thanks to its infinitely better uniformity. Most PG279Qs have a strong yellow tint on the top half of the screen.

All these IPS displays should be very similar. You would have to view them side by side to tell a difference between models that have been properly calibrated. Besides, there's a reason most people recommend the Acer over Asus and it's because of QC.

I haven't looked at both side by side but I can say the Acer AG coating is perfect and doesn't create any sparkle or fuzziness found on heavy AG coated monitors like the pg278q TN panel. Only been about a week since I've tried both pg279 and xb271 and neither had any noticeable AG issues.
Hope that helps.

I own both and they are nearly identical. Can't see any differences in coating. White and sharpness are the same. It's just a thing of adjustment.

From a perpendicular angle (but only from a perpendicular angle) the PG279Q's coating is less intrusive. It's only a small difference, the lightness of the coating of different samples of the same model may vary, and not everyone may notice it. But I don't think the PG279Q has better whites after calibration than the XB271HU after calibration, and the XB271HU has a better color uniformity so a more uniform white.

I received 2 Acers today after giving up on the Asus ones. Bleeding was perfect, but both had dust...



Also, I told the store that I want to go back to the Asus model, because the stand wiggles way too much for my liking on the Acer.

Asus seems to say their firmware update to fix the line down the middle problem that both Acer and Asus has is ready, they are just distributing it to their service centers. Hopefully Acer won't be too far behind, but it'll still be several months before new monitors come with this fix instead of having to send in the monitors to a service center.

Whats the current consensus with the 71's vs the Asus PG279Q since Asus' quality control statement back in march? Has the blb on the Asus improved?

I'm on my 5th xb271hu and looking to try the factory checked PG279Qs. 2 of my 71s had dp issues (flickering, hardware issues; cable wasnt the issue) + bad blb. The other 2 had intolerable blb and the current one I have is on the fence with tolerable. I currently have a March 2016 build.
