Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 591

I'd say keep it if you can mostly fix it with profiling (for software that supports profiles) and it's not noticeable in games. If the principle of it bothers you, return it. I can't fault anyone for being upset with flaws considering the price of the monitor.

Can someone smarter than me explain why, in order to correct the ''vertical line down the middle" issue caused (presumably) by the Gsync module, the monitor must be sent in?

Why cant it be done by the end user. Is it really that complicated to update the firmware? Does it use a special port, require special physical tools end users wont have access to etc? Is it a support decision to ensure their job security? Or is this simply a management decision to keep customers out of the insides of the monitor, so they dont break one thing when attempting to fix another themselves?

the firmware update is ready but not all the service centers are equipped with the required tool to perform the firmware update so some things are still in process of being prepared

That quote from the Asus support forums mentions a special tool... what are they referring to, because I wouldve thought that updating the firmware is basically sticking something in a USB port (or equiv port) and running the software...

The viewsonic isn't out yet and it has been delayed for a 2nd time, so don't count on that monitor. Look for the AOC at 165hz IPS g sync

Probably a decision they made to ensure the end user is stuck sending their monitors in. I'd also guess that it's to prevent anyone from editing the FW.

Your current panel looks to have minimal to almost nonexistent bleed if the video you posted is how it looks in person. It's hard to tell from a video though. If you have minimal to no bleed (yellow/orangish glowing when viewed straight on), no dust, dead/stuck pixels, and uniformity is alright you've got one of the best panels you'll get.

You're always going to have glow with IPS because it's inherent to the panel technology. You can lessen it with a polarizer but, that introduces it's own issues according to NEC: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

What is an A-TW (Advanced True White) polarizer? What are the benefits and drawbacks?

The A-TW filter is an additional film that is applied to some LCD panels with the aim of improving off-axis viewing of the display by reducing the "glow" effect that can be seen when viewing very dark images at extreme angles on S-IPS LCD panels. While it does reduce the glow effect, it can also introduce a slight coloration artifact that causes the glow to appear green when viewed from one angle, and magenta from another.

Long story short: I'd advise looking at other panel types such as VA and TN if IPS glow bothers you to the point of making the monitor unusable for you smile.gif.

Good to read everyone posting their experience with their screens. I bought two of these screens and still in doubt which one to keep. Both screens have a one dead pixel and ofocurse the glow.




What do you guys think? Which one should I keep? Both are manufactured in March 2016.
Or should I return them both?

So when you notice the bottom 2 corners on dark images thats ips glow and not bleed correct?
post #5909 of 7811
Correct It is glow and not bleed. As far as I know yellow light is glow and white color is bleed.
