2.You say use diffent panel so which monitor do you suggest? İ want to 2k,gsync, lower input lag,24-27 inç...you suggest va panel but i know which monitor uses this panel.confused.gif
SuperClear is just a term Viewsonic refers to their IPS monitors with. The XG2703 isn't out yet so it's impossible to know what specific panel is being used. The problems, including BLB but not glow, are the result of poor quality control.

You should check out TFTCentral, they're an excellent resource. The Dell S2716DG or Asus PG278Q are both TN panels that meet what you want. You should read reviews for a baseline and scan through the threads here on OCN to find out how QC is.

Hello all,

Recently purchased three Acer XB271HU monitors.


Blacklight is minimal on all and no dead pixels!


Although I do have an issue, the whites aren't the same across all three monitors, I have tried changing the color temperature, with no success.

Two of the monitors have a yellow tint, while one is whiter than the others.


Anyone know the best technique in matching them as close as possible?


What would be the best calibration tool for this? Preferably one that does not use a ICC.profile and uses the OCD tools isntead. , as I am running in surround, it should not allow setting up ICC profiles for individual monitors.

Decided to RMA mine, the price of the monitor and the fact that the orange glow was visible during gameplay became a dealbreak for me.

Time for another spin on the IPS blb roulette wheel.

Question; is there any downside to running the display at 165hz overclock? Even with my overclocked GTX 1080 very few games get up there but what the heck right? Desktop is a bit smoother.

What do you guys think? Which one should I keep? Both are manufactured in March 2016.
Or should I return them both?
Totally subjective. If it were me both of those monitors would already be sent back. I don't accept a single dead or stuck pixel when the monitor is brand new.

You struck gold if all 3 of your monitors have no dead pixels and minimal BLB, congrats. When you tried changing color temperature, does that mean you changed colors within the monitor OSD and/or Windows calibration? You can also try getting a colorimeter (i1 Display Pro or ColorMunki Display are both great and not too expensive). You've invested a lot into the 3 monitors, grab a colorimeter and try getting them as close to your desired target as possible. Unfortunately it may just be the case that you won't be able to get all 3 to match if nothing works.

If you buy a colorimeter, I highly recommend using DisplayCAL for your calibration software. You won't need to create ICC profiles. You can set your target in the program and change the settings in the monitor OSD without running the calibration. As for gamma adjustment, that is the only tricky thing if you don't run the calibration. You can try adjusting your monitor brightness to find the native gamma sweet spot. Luckily my monitor cooperated and a brightness of 35 in my OSD (plenty bright for me) results in gamma of 2.2. It takes a bit of time going back and forth between color adjustment + white point and then brightness to get your target gamma, but once all is balanced out it is done and you don't need to worry about profiles ever.

Of course, you could try exchanging the monitors but you run the risk of the next ones being worse re: dead pixels or worse uniformity and BLB.

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?
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...

There's a special port on the back of the monitor covered by some black tape. You need to plug a special tool into this port to update the firmware IIRC.

Interesting observation... I hadn't tried testing the gamma with different brightness settings, I have left mine at 25 for the most part. Does your gamma sit around 2.2 for most of the shades (i.e. 0-100% white)? In my case, it starts at like 1.8, then jumps up around 2.2-2.3. The average according to HCFR is 2.15. Is yours a pretty stable 2.2, or is that simply the average? I think someone else here mentioned having traded in like 5-6 monitors, and at least one had a good gamma without any real tweaking. I have wondered if that was something they fixed in their more recent firmware, because the abnormally low gamma around 0-10% white seems to be related to the Dark Boost feature. As in, you can see the effect exaggerated if you increase the level from 0 to 1.

Received my third screen today. No dead pixels this time but the same patern for the ips glow as of the previous ones (all March 2016 batch).
This one is either a keeper or I return it and I go for a decent TN panel for now.

Tough choice.

I'm also curious about the ViewSonic xg2703-gs, but I just can't wait any longer!

IPS glow is normal. You will never get an IPS display without IPS glow. Never. It's a panel feature.

You've got it backwards unless this panel is way different than the one in the XB270HU. You'll see glow when you view it off center (extremely noticeable on all black or very dark image). You'll see BLB viewing it straight on (easiest to spot on a dark or black image just like glow).

It's possible to reduce it but, the method causes it's own issues. I doubt it'll ever be used on an IPS for gaming.
