Awesome, glad you like the calibration! If you are curious how well it is calibrated, you can use DisplayCal to generate a report to see if it hits the correct gamma curve. The best one for this would be "Graybalance verification testchart" since it tests a larger range of blacks, grays and whites.

Mine was april 2016 model had to sent it back because of very bad blb at the bottom right corner, also the picture was very grayish out of the box don't know if it was just me seeing it. Not going to order another one. Probably will go back to tn maybe dell S2716DG or a used asus if i can find one cheap.

Thanks for the tip on DisplayCal, I had used the X-Rite software to profile previously. Trying DisplayCal to calibrate to sRGB I think I've gotten to a somewhat better gamma calibration and the gray balance test results come back looking good.

How true is it that XB271HU's colors look bland compared to Asus PG279Q?

http://imgur.com/KU62gyG seen this post in reddit. ( the right one is the Acer one)

I've decided to get ACER then starting to think again after looking at this. (he states that he calibrated this with tftcentral).

Its not true at alle, its a matter of calibration. You can't just copy other calibrations and think they are perfect for your monitor cause every panel is different.

Lastly, tftcentral never did a review or calibration of the xb271hu, so the person spewing that garbage is talking out of his ass.

FYI, anyone who bought the i1Display Pro during the Amazon Prime Day, you might be able to ask for a partial refund from Amazon if you ask them to price match B&H's special for today: i1Display Pro for $149.00

And for anyone else looking to get a colorimeter for your XB271HU, that's the best deal I've ever seen on that one.

Such a great deal. Thanks for sharing.
Btw, is a colorimeter a need for this monitor? I am thinking about buying it but do not want to spend extra money. The monitor will be used for basic things like watching movies, playing games and software development. So no image/video editing for me.
Thank you.

Awesome deal. If I did not already have Colormunki Display. I would be all over that.

It's definitely not a requirement... at least in my case, the screen was pretty close to calibrated in its default state. The thing that a colorimeter will help with is if you are super picky about perfect whites (D65) and want to get the best RGB adjustments for it. Otherwise you can just eyeball it (or leave it alone).

It will also allow you to correct the gamma, if you notice that certain shades are lighter/darker than they should be. In my case, darks appear lighter than they're supposed to, but it isn't a huge difference. Creating a profile for the monitor allows me to fix it--there's no fix through the OSD.

Hi,

i just recived my Acer XB271HU yesterday.
Very nice Monitor, no dead pixels or dust.

I have two weeks to get a refund if i dont want the Monitor so i want to ask if you think that the one i recieved is okay or is a bad one.

Pics (Iphone 6s, Dark Room):

So the BLB/Glow on the black image looks not so good but ingame i rarely notice it. (looks worse on the images than in real).
Also with normal lightning in my room the effect is weaker.
I would like to keep it but if you say i got a really bad one then i will send it back and get a new one.
