Am I right in thinking G-Sync monitors can't handle scaling when G-Sync is enabled?

I have a GTX 1070 and this monitor and everything is at default works fine.. I set resolution to max with 144hz native refresh rate.

Any reason you're not overclocking to 165hz?

Second, I REALLY dont like the red stand, and want to get a desk mount, or even mount it to the wall. What is a good mount that can support two 27inch monitors? Last question, relating to the previous one, I want another monitor to use as a secondary display, but I want both monitors to look the same, or at least have the same bezel. What is another 27' monitor that looks similar to the XB 271HU? Thanks for the help, I am a noob, and dont know what i'm doing tongue.gif

Yes you should be able to max out on 1440p no problem on most games... also the red stand is not bad. I thought it looked tacky in the pictures but in person it has a very nice feel. It almost feels metallic... if you ever used a military humvee it feels like the fiberglass material they build those out of. I think you'll be happy.

I have a overclocked FX-8350 with a GTX 1070 and get very good performance... my CPU is lacking.. but I plan to upgrade that along with a motherboard in the future as my next upgrades.

This is true.. plus my CPU hurts my FPS... this is part of a list of gradual upgrades I'm doing. The adaptive refresh rate is really what I wanted.

Depends on the game. Many will run at that frame rate, just not very recent AAA titles.

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.
ADC is pretty useless... even on other monitors (ex. U3011) I got much better results by simply using other software to do the OSD settings myself. If you use DisplayCal instead of the i1Display Pro's software, one of the first steps is an interactive calibration that gives you readings as you make adjustments to OSD.

Really, the only OSD settings you should touch on the monitor are Brightness and User Color RGB sliders. If you move Contrast past 50, it starts clipping bright colors. Everything else is already set correctly, or just a useless feature.

If you prefer the software that comes with the i1Display Pro, you can download something else like HCFR to get interactive calibration tools to get the optimal settings using OSD. Or you can just use DisplayCal for that first step, and don't bother to let it profile the display afterwards.

Feel free to PM me with calibration questions!

I want to know if I've bought a bad XB271HU?
I've compared mine to several different ones online, but still couldn't get a good idea with the quality on mine.
Please give me some advice on whether or not to return it.

Your pictures are overexposed. Try to take the pics or look at your panel in complete darkness. This panel uses a coating that can reflect some light and also we are dealing with an IPS panel, so a little glow is inevitable. It is almost impossible to detect BLB from a picture so you gonna have to check for yourself. Here is what to look for:

1. Do you have any glow on the corners?
2. What color is the glow? Silver = ips glow, orange = blb.
3. Does the glow go away when you are looking directly at it?
4. Turn up your brightness to 100 and check for the above. Do the same for brightness at 20.
5. Report back.

Cheers.

PS What is the manufacture date for your monitor? (located behind the panel)

I'm quite happy with the results of my i1 Display Pro calibration (bought one on Prime Day). Nice unit, especially if you can get it on sale!
The black crush I was perceiving didn't get a ton better but I think it might just be my eyes (my girlfriend doesn't have the same issues seeing the darker boxes on the Lagom black level test) and how dark this monitor can get compared to my previous IPS display.
