Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 588

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)

Thank you so much for your reply. I've checked the monitor myself and most of the glow looking from the picture is IPS glow, but I've also noticed that there are slightly some back light bleeding on the top left.
I am kind of a skeptical person, but looking from my friends' perspective, they don't think that it is that big of a problem, so I'm keeping my XB271HU.
BTW, the manufacture date is March, 2016.

Mine was also a Mar 2016 one. I decided to keep it, since the little blb on the top left did not actually bother me that much. Thanks for the reply.

Deleting the ICC profile (if you installed one) and setting everything to system default should do it.

just played about 1 hour of BF4 and im glad to say it was a pleasant experience, the screen on my desk though.. looks like a 21'' screen because I just took the Acer Z35 off it which is a 35'' beast lol..
the z35 is a great monitor but it has its drawbacks, ghosting here and there, even while browsing but the 200hz g sync is great in racing and BF4 plus because its lower res than 1440p it can nearly hit that 200

I haven't experienced this smooth game play since forever I dont think lol ( xb271hua)

heres my monitor history, well ones that matter anyway lol asus rog swift ( first one ) had it for nearly 2 years..

then a acer x34 for really cheap im talking sell the rog swift and add 100, anyway still have the x34 and z35 which will be going up for sale the z35 will go back to amazon ( got it from amazon warehouse a week ago)

this so far is the best gaming experience, and the picture quality is amazing I can't believe its not IPS lol

the acer x34 is a beautiful monitor for stuff like browing and anything general even content creating .. hell even gaming but not fast paced gaming or competitive thats the only downside for me also only 100hz

when I want to game which is rarely I want a good experience the acer x34 is excellent outside of games but not so good inside of games

also 99% of youtube videos dont scale with 3440 x 1440 and movies also can be a pain, I think 3440 x 1440 is great but dont think its there yet, many people love their x34 but most people did not just come from a 144hz 1ms monitor lol

anyway final conclusion

so far so good, im very happy with this monitor and its probably a blessing it was a TN as I can't be bothered going back and fourth with replacements with the IPS issues

also this monitor supports 3D vision, DP & HDMI ULMB can overclock to 165hz and G sync 1ms

it may be the best raw gaming monitor available at this time

The whole IPS/TN color thing is a bit overblown now, both panel types have their upsides and downs. When probably 90% of users (or higher) aren't going to profile their monitors with a meter, and the few that do aren't likely to profile with a spectro., the differences tend to diminish. I do think IPS is the better display tech. on the overall.

Yeah I agree with this but one caveat. While colors on a quality TN may rival or equal IPS, it doesn't change the fact that when I play racing games on the TN the sky will change colors due to gamma shift when I sit back in my chair. The lack of gamma shift on IPS panels make colors much more even and vibrant, in my opinion, and far superior to anything a TN can offer.

Yeah I used to think IPS had full Adobe RGB but they don't unless specified. I think the xb271hu is around 72% Adobe RGB, might be wrong about it because I can't find any information regarding that. I used to have a laptop that had a 100% aRGB and the colors on it really popped, wish these 1440p, 144hz low ms gaming monitors would adopt 100% adobe rgb.

My guess is a lot of it is companies not wanting to devalue their pro lines by adding the same functionality to the consumer lines. There might also be some difficulty in designing a panel with gaming boxes ticked while also providing full aRGB coverage and a good sRGB mode.

I am currently working with our team that is investigating this issue. I am hopeful to have an update to post on this issue by Friday.

Sorry, but I do not have specifics on what the resolution would be. In the past, similar issues have been resolved with a firmware update, but I do not know if that will be the fix in this case. I do not want to speculate what the resolution would be, because I really hope to have more information to provide by Friday.
