Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 584

post #5831 of 7811
I have the option to get one of these for an exceedingly reasonable price here in NZ and was wondering how peoples experiences with BLB and ips glow are in general.
Also apparently Acer don't consider dead pixels covered by the warranty unless you have an absurd amount of them, so I'm wondering if many people have had issues with dead/stuck pixels?

Hi, I have a dell u2713hm (60hz). It's a great monitor. A few questions if you don't mind answering (@anyone). Yeah, I know it's been asked a thousand times throughout this thread.

How is quality control now?

If I purchase it which website newegg or amazon? (Just incase for RMA purposes)

Is it worth the upgrade from 60hz to 144hz? I've never seen or owned a 144hz monitor.

What dp cable should I purchase?

And is there any new monitors that I should wait on before purchasing this or asus 144hz?

+rep to anyone who helps at all cheers.gif

I hear the QC is much better now but of course my monitor came with a stuck pixel in the center of the screen.

If they're the same price then definitely amazon, newegg's customer service is lacking. I am in the process of getting a replacement and the rep I chatted with lied to me about their dead pixel policy. It is 8 dead pixels before they will issue a replacement rma but I know in fact they have replaced them with only 1 and when I asked them about this they replied that their policy is not 8 but 10 dead pixels. I never have issue with amazon, i only ordered from newegg because it was on sale at the time.

I also upgraded from 60hz to 144hz and yes the difference is huge, you won't want to go back to 60hz especially if you have a powerful graphics card that can push the fps the difference between 60 and 130+ fps is huge in my eyes along with the increased resolution.

I would suggest Accell it is a great quality dp cable much better than the trash the monitor comes with.

I'm sad to report that long term usage of these displays shows some quality issues. I've had my five displays in use for about 7 months now. One display had a power socket go bad. I suspect the solder on the inside of the socket came apart and display would come on only if the plug was inserted at a certain angle. Another display is showing signs of the same issue, but on the displayport. It loses signal if it's bumped ever so slightly.

if you had them for 7 months then it means they're from Fall 2015 batch

hopefully later ones are better

QC has not changed, it is still a lottery. Make sure you buy from a merchant who has a good return policy.

I'd suggest Amazon, although if you get Newegg Premier, Newegg will treat you much better. Amazon monitors returns, so if you end up exchanging multiple units they will contact you about it and you risk getting banned. If you go through Amazon and return / exchange, take photos of the issue and speak with someone over the phone. They contacted me due to multiple exchanges but I didn't get the threatening letter that other people on here reported. I called and spoke with someone and explained everything. They emailed me back with a polite letter thanking me for detailed feedback and welcoming future business. So it is case by case and also depends on who you speak with.

60hz to 144hz- depends on what you play. For fast paced shooters and racing games, heck yes it is night and day difference. For RPG or slower scrolling games you still get the benefit of overall smoother experience / more lifelike.

The DP cable that came with my XB271HU has been fine since day 1. The DP cable issue some people have been reporting is not a common issue.

I would choose the Acer over the Asus. QC is bad for both but we've generally fared better with the Acer.

That is really unfortunate. I bought mine from my local Microcenter with a 2 year replacement plan, so hopefully if it happens to me it'll be covered. Mine is a Jan 2016 unit. If you get yours serviced or replaced by Acer please post your experience dealing with them. Hopefully it won't be too much of a hassle.

Edit: Sale price of $189 is pretty good, though you can get the ColorMunki for $130 sometimes.

I purchased this and it arrived yesterday. I should have done some research, because I am reading that i1Display Pro has issues with both Acer XB271HU and XB270HU when using ADC. ADC is the setting that allows the Display pro software to automatically adjust monitor settings, opposed to doing it manually.

https://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Monitors/XB271HU-Burn-In-Mode-and-ADC/m-p/417445/highlight/true#M2533

Has anyone here ran into this issue (Burn-In Mode and settings being reset) when using ADC? I suppose I could just do it manually. But between $700 for the XB271HU that has light bleed in bottom right and $180 for a calibration tool that has issues with the monitor...I'm starting to feel a bit drained/ripped off.

Greetings I just bought this Monitor, mine was manufactured in March 2016 and was purchased through Amazon. So far I have not noticed any dead or defected pixels, as well as very minimal backlight bleed. The only backlight bleed I notice is similar to my secondary 23" LG IPS display I have.. in which there is uniform bleeding from the edges but its very faint and you will probably never notice it in game. Have to say I am very happy with this purchase so far! The G-Sync module makes gameplay very smooth with no tearing or stuttering.

Also I have not adjusted the colors at all as I am very happy w/ the out of the box calibration... I upgraded from a 6 year old Asus 27" 60Hz screen. My secondary monitor is still have 23" LG display.

I have the monitor hooked up through the included DP cable which is perfect size for me at least... I was using DVI cable before this and its nice to get rid of that bulky cable.

I don't know why you would purchase a $180 calibration tool like Tapeworm above has tbh...

I am satisfied with my purchase.
