Fast Sync doesn't reduce refresh rate and keeps it constant 165 Hz, so it's 100% comfortable for eyes.

Now I've seen it all.

So I've been away from the forums for a while and it appears that nothing has changed regarding panel lottery and nit picking. It's a wonder that manufacturers even take chances on these types of monitors. I am still enjoying my XB270HU, although I haven't had much time to game recently thanks to the arrival of my second child. I'm glad I took a chance last year and I have never noticed headaches or eye strain from gaming with Gsync, although everyone's physiology is different...

What are you talking about dude... Nothing you said made sense..

Got the XB271HU today. Wow @ 165hz, or 100+hz for that matter. Almost tempted to buy a second one and put them side by side and mount them on a dual monitor arm...

An ditch my XB321HK. The pixel density is ofcourse higher on it, but its not THAT bad.

Quality wise the panels seem about the same, calibrating the new one with my current one was no issue at all. No uneven backlight bleed and no weird (sub) pixels biggrin.gif

"YOUR EYES CANT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 60HZ AND 120HZ"

Is about as stupid as what you just posted...

Glad your liking the new monitor, ive been going through my games list and even older games are buttery smooth and pop with vibrant colors. Makes games so much more immersive!

Would a profile for XB270 work?

I'm considering getting a ColorMunki but until then I could do well with a decent ICC profile.
If you're still in the market for a ColorMunki, B&H has them on sale for $99 until midnight!

Gsync sets the refresh rate to be equal to ingame fps.

Most of recent games at max settings and 2k resolution will result in 55-80 fps. So, the same will be the monitor's refresh rate in Hz.

It's like playing on an old LCD monitor with max 60 Hz refresh rate, even if you have XB271HU.

Most of people can tell the difference between 60 Hz and 120-165 Hz just by looking at screen and moving the mouse. Low refresh rate is definitely not comfortable for eyes.

That's why Gsync is a stupid technology. It turns your modern 165 Hz display into an old 60 Hz garbage.

I have disabled Gsync completely and now using only Fast Sync at constant 165 Hz

That is exactly it! Even Windows 7 windows go super smooth lol Im curious as how Aero handles it with
build in Vsync, I guess it also abides by 165hz.

I decided to keep my XB321HK for size and raw pixel/color quality, and bought a desktop monitor arm so so i can put the XB271HU in front of me when I play more competitive games. But yeah nothing can beat the xb321hk in quality, i think it still works for more casual games with vsync and motion blur to emulate smoothness smile.gif

Ill post some pics of my setup here when it is finished.

There seemed to have been a fair bit of improvement during the initial run of the XB271HU. I'm happy with my XB270HU as well. It would've been nice if I could've gotten the latest FW for the additional features but, at least I've got 120hz ULMB.

You seem to be confusing CRTs and LCDs.
