G-SYNC adds far less lag than V-Sync which is why this is the best option.

If you're playing a game that does not have an FPS limiter, then it doesn't really matter if you have V-Sync enabled or if you have a global FPS cap instead. Both add lag, and either way most people won't detect the added lag of either.

Ok. On a side note, what is the difference between using a 144hz non G-Sync monitor with an FPS cap and G-Sync monitor with an FPS cap?

Non G-SYNC monitor doesn't have G-SYNC. If you mean input lag difference, I think it's negligible.

Got my monitor, May 2016 panel. Just enabled sRGB mode and ULMB and left everything else as is. Looks pretty good to me. sRGB is pretty bright and warm, goes pretty well with ULMB. Might have a tinker with it later and actually calibrate it.

Got my Acer XB271HU in today. March 2016 unit. No dead/stuck pixels. No dust. In this pic brightness is at 30, and I already loosened the bottom middle screw as suggested. The glow was much worse int he beginning. Is this a keeper?
post #6005 of 7928
Ofcourse it is. Can't get much better than that.
post #6006 of 7928
it sounds bad imo, watching a movie with this.. The bleed on top line ....erf
the bottom corner sounds like glow so it s fine. only top... but u haven t dust or dead pixel.
Maybe check the last issue with alt tab...

Luckily, I won't ever be watching movies on this thing. It's for gaming and general PC use only. I have a plasma for movies.

Yeah so maybe check alt tab several times in row in games if the issue appear
post #6009 of 7928
i think you should sent back.Why should we accept defective unit? Also somebody get perfect panel?Asus and Acer have to produce flawless products.We pay 700-1000 Dolar...
post #6010 of 7928
I think it is impossible to find a perfect panel. In my opinion this is definitly a keeper.

After alot of thinking and doubting I kept 1 of the four screens I ordered. The all had the same glow and bleed. Especially in the right low corner.
After a week of heavy use the screens looks much better and I don't even notice it in games.
