I noticed is that if I tilt the screen backwards slightly it almost eliminates the BLB.

Can you take a picture in complete darkness? This gives a better view of the bleed/glow!

Weird how it looks blue on the camera.

Regarding the 'vertical line down middle issue', taken from the official acer forum regarding someone who dealt with support: http://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Monitors/Line-down-the-middle-overlapping-image/td-p/418751/page/21
Quote:
As contacted with local acer support, at first they offerred a new replacement unit and claimed that the firmware has been flashed to the updated version with this issue fixed. Unfortunately, the middle line down issue still persisted in the new unit received.

Contacted the support again and refer this thread to them. They said the firmware update is being done thru a propriatery usb device hence required the monitor to be send over to the service centre for an upgrade. The support personnel also emphasize that the upgrade process does not involved of dismantle any piece of component from the monitor itself.

I just ordered 2 of these from Newegg with the intent of keeping the best one. I'm really glad I did.

First the good:
Both monitors had no dead pixels, no BLB, and negligible IPS glow. So I lucked out in this regard.


....BUT, the yellow tint problem with some of these panels is real. See the picture below.




-Both XB271HUs were connected to a GTX 1080 via displayport.

-Cables were identical (those included with the monitor). I even swapped them to see if it makes a difference.

-Both monitors were set to the default SRGB mode, so color settings and brightness were identical. Nvidia control panel settings were also identical.


Guess which one I kept?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The L one looked great out of the box, slightly high in the reds but very easy to adjust, very bright with nice accurate whites. The monitor on the R side took quite a bit of adjustment to look acceptable, but I was never able to get rid of that faint yellow tint without overemphasizing a different color making the picture look even worse. It's especially noticeable in day to day tasks, such as web browsing where a lot of whites and grays tend to make this tint more noticeable.

Both looked great in game, but since I intend to use this monitor for everyday tasks the yellow tint would have driven me nuts. The monitor on the L was the clear winner.

There is definitely some clear panel variation with these monitors, don't settle for less... nobody has the magic settings or profile to make your panel look perfect if it's already flawed. Do yourself a favor and order more than one from a store that has a good return policy. Good luck!

Is anyone able to create a custom resolution of 3440x1440@61Hz+ AND maintain aspect ratio?

In other words, preventing people from being able to do to themselves.

Is color temp the same on both?

The uniformity on the left monitor is really awful, but that's just my opinion. I'd take a warmer hue any day over that and would've returned that one too.

I was about to edit something about that into my post. The right panel actually looks more correct on color balance with a minor tint to warm.

Looks like he said both monitors were set to sRGB? This is a drastic difference between 2 identical monitors at the same settings, wow. Honestly the warmer one on the right is the one I'd keep. A goal of 6500K white point is warmer than what many people are used to.

Color temp. isn't linked to the eColor management setting on my XB270HU. I figured it was the same for these, my bad if that isn't the case.
