Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 595

post #5941 of 7847
Just spent a few hours playing various games...

I cannot believe the difference between this monitor and my previous (1080p). Everything is super sharp and I am seeing colours that I never saw before. GSync is one of the most noticeable differences. No longer am I only enjoying tear free gaming.... I now have the luxury of a stutter free, butter smooth experience as well.

BLB is minimal. If I view the monitor straight on there is nothing.... move my head slightly to the right and I see a very small amount in the bottom right corner (on a pitch black screen). No more worries about whether I will need to RMA my monitor like so many users have.

Definitely worth the upgrade!

okay so I decided to try for another monitor through amazon cause of the blue tint on the right side of my original.

Here's the comparison, help me decide which one to keep. I won't be bothering with anymore returns or monitor lottery. Thanks guys!

At 144 HZ my mouse pointer is ghosting so much I can draw circles on the desktop. This screen is making me paranoid. I can't enjoy it.
In games it looks fine tough.

Edit:

@izjamest: The first monitor seems to have a better "white". Are the settings the same? Else my pick would be the first one.

If anyone else has the game can they confirm this, G-sync does not seem to work correctly with Starcraft 2. The G-Sync indicator says its on and the game is smooth enough over 60fps but drop below 60fps and you get the same old vsync stutter and input lag.

This just me?

IMO, the second one is a little better... for me, the difference was most apparent in the pictures of the Google homepage. In both, the right side gets a little darker, but in the first it also has a noticeable blue tint. The second one does have a slightly worse left side, but not as bad as the blue tint on the first.

@Pocketgamer is right that the first has a slightly better white, but I would think that you could adjust the second properly with the RGB controls.

Edit: FYI, the uniformity issues that you are experiencing with both of these panels are pretty typical... mine has the same problem where the brightness drops off on the right side. There are slight tints on the top and right side of mine as well, but none of the problems are bad enough for me to notice during daily use.

I've never had any issue with SC2 and g-sync on this monitor. My GPU is a 980 Ti though, so I don't really go below 60fps other than when I'm on the main menu screen / mission start screen. For some reason I dip down at times. What GPU are you running? Try uninstalling graphics card drivers and then driver sweep or something similar, then re-install?

GTX 1080 Founders. Overclocked I'm hitting around 1950mhz on the core. What settings are you using?

Cool so we're in the same ballpark power-wise. I am using the Extreme preset with everything maxed, 144hz refresh rate. V-sync is disabled within the game. Were you having this problem before getting the 1080?

Next time I play I'll enable an FPS monitor again and observe. If I do drop below 60 I'm not noticing it at all.

@izjamest: Monitor # 2 for sure. No contest. Return #1 and be done with the lottery and enjoy.

Also using the Extreme preset with everything maxed out. Are you using DSR or running at 1440p? At 1440p I'm over 60 most of the time with drops below happening on certain stages or during large battles.

To be honest this month is the first time I've loaded up Starcraft 2 on this machine, last time I played it was in 2013! The only other game thats giving me this kind of framerate problem is Total War Warhammer and at least G-sync works properly there.
