I'd go with XB271HU unless you're really into 0 motion blur and perfect motion.

Is the motion blur bad on xb271hu

i have to make the best choice because in my country there's no RMA

Can you demo both of them first?
post #6906 of 7389

but i can't play in store LoL

what i need is a monitor with best colors but i'm wondering is 4ms good for fps gaming or not if its no i'll go with a TN 1ms

There is pretty much no blur on XB271HU, it does motion extremely well. Some people here claim that they can see a difference between 1 ms and 4 ms. I sure can't.

But, not being able to RMA it is a bigger problem. XB271HU isn't something I'd buy without a chance to return it - some of them have backlight bleeding.

Try Dell S2716DG or the smaller S2417DG, they should suit you.

Glad to hear about motion blur ,,, and about backlight bleeding i can test it in store and see how much BLB on it

so will go and test it

how can i test the ghosting and overshoot and other things

Use testufo.com for motion blur etc. I sure can tell a difference between my XB270HU and Benq XL2411z. The XL2411z has some overshoot but is noticeably faster, so much so, that I play worse on the Acer. But, I would pick the Acer if I could only have one because I also appreciate the better contrast, viewing angles and colors for everyday use.

I had the PG278Q (non-R) and thought it was a great monitor, but it had some weird visual glitches that a lot of 120Hz+ TN panels had, it left an interlaced looking pattern on images that transitioned quickly (ex. muzzle flash of a gun). The IPS monitors didn't have this problem, which is why I switched to an XB271HU when I had the chance. I don't know if this is still an issue with TN.

I personally don't notice the difference between 1ms and 4ms pixel response times (in reality it's closer to 3ms and 5ms). HOWEVER, I have to say that if you are planning to use ULMB mode often, it works much better on a TN display. IPS is just a little too slow to work well with the strobe, so you'll see pixels caught in transition which creates a ghosting effect.

IPS and TN have their strengths and weaknesses:
  • Gamma Shift - This is the TN's weakness... contrast & tint is messed up on the top 1/3 and bottom 1/3 of the screen, and it shifts if you move your head. IPS doesn't have this issue.
  • IPS Glow - This is the IPS's weakness... on dark scenes, you will notice that blacks have sort of a shimmer / glow, especially in the corners of the screen. Makes it harder to see detail and is occasionally distracting. It also shifts if you move your head.
  • Pixel Response - TN is slightly faster, but you may not notice a difference (unless using ULMB)

You probably will be happy with IPS or TN... they are pretty similar, main difference is Gamma Shift vs. IPS Glow, and which one you can live with. IPS Glow is slightly less annoying, unless you play a lot of dark games & movies.
