Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 624

Double post, sorry.

I still want to know if any of those Chinese firmware ISP devices can flash the firmware for us without having to send it in.
Problem is, either no one has these devices or if they do, they don't have the monitors to see if it can read the flash chips in the first place.

I'm talking about these devices:

http://www.yoycart.com/Product/5278188206/LCD_TV_development_tool/ (this worked with all of Benq's monitors. XL2730Z support is unknown).
And stuff like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-RT809F-USB-Universal-EPROM-FLASH-VGA-ISP-AVR-GAL-PIC-Programmer-/251316521321

The Mstar can flash the macronix MX25L1606E over DVI without using the VGA port.
I have no idea how the RT809F would interface with these Gsync monitors.

Anyone else know any devices used to upgrade these monitor firmwares?

According to Anandtech the new XB271HUT is TN, guess that's what the "T" at the end stands for.

So much for a new and improved 1440p IPS panel without buggy firmware. rolleyes.gif

Burning question on the Acer Predator XB271HU - is the logo on the front lighted? And if so can you turn the light off? That would bug me. Hope so. Now if I can just find it anywhere. Sigh.

Thanks!

no backlight behind the logo, you can also disable the power button led.

The Acer XB271HUA is also TN and much less expensive than the T.

I don't think Anandtech got the panel type right... the other places I've seen so far are speculating it's also IPS, just with the addition of Tobii eye-tracking. (T probably stands for Tracking/Tobii). I tried following Anandtech's sources, but didn't see the actual panel type mentioned anywhere. PCMonitors.info speculates it is essentially the same as XB271HU but with additional hardware for tracking, and possibly DVI-D and VGA inputs.

Here's the link: https://pcmonitors.info/acer/acer-xb271hu-and-xb271hut-165hz-wqhd-ahva-models/

You can see firmware version by holding the far left button ("G" button) when turning the monitor on, it shows an info window.
Say then what firmware version you have.
