Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 693

post #6921 of 7350
Hey All!

Recently just purchased this monitor as well. Seems like I got a pretty good panel. I don't have any pictyures at the moment, but I do not notice any backlight bleed to the naked eye, and the uniformity looks good as well.

I also just calibrated the monitor, and from my limited experience the results seem pretty great. Games look very fantastic. Here are my settings.

Brightness: 28
Contrast: 50
Gamma: 2.2
Color Temp: User Mode, (R Gain 97) (G Gain 93) (B Gain 100)
6-axis color was left at default settings and was not changed.

I calibrated using my X-Rite ColorMunki Smile with the DisplayCAL GUI. Results are as follows.

Achieved White Point after calibration: 6628K --- Could go a bit lower but I like it.
Black Depth: .1411 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio: 1064:1 --- Above advertised!
Delta E Average: 0.34
Delta E Maximum: 0.93
Gamut Coverage: 99.2 % sRGB with 77.4% Adobe RGB
Gamut Volume: 117%




If anyone wants me to post the ICC file, I will do that. Seems like I got a pretty good panel! BF1 and similar games looks amazing and they are buttery smooth.

I just got a Acer Predator XB271HU bmiprz 27" ips. Im new to this ICC profile? May i get a rundown on what to do? Just download it and stick it in some folder?

I mean as of right now I feel as the monitor looks amazing at what I turned it on at!

My only true problem with this monitor is that when I got to watch any videos from YouTube, Netflix, etc etc, its very very pixelated! So pixelated that i cant even watch anything. But playing games its phenomenal!

Thanks for any feedback! and appreciate that ICC profile! I will look into it when I get home from work! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

that's because the monitor is 1440p. when it tries to upscale 1080p to 1440p, it looks like crap. Try watching 1080p content windowed, it should help.

Your ICC profile needs to be saved under a certain file path. Are you running Windows 10? I believe the correct spot to save your .ICC Profile is the following:
C:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color

From there you can go to your control panel and select Appearance and Personalize. Somewhere you should see Display and then you navigate to Color Management. Every operating system is slightly different at that point. There, you can select the display, then add your new ICC profile and set it as the default.

I do recommend trying to get a cheap color calibrator, as even stock my whites and some colors seemed a bit off.

Youtube will look pixelated unless you can select the 1440p version of that specific video. If not, you will just have to deal with what ever quality they have. Make sure you are not zoomed in on your browser as well.

Hi Guys,

So I just received my beautiful XB271HU Monitor today, and it's been a fun experience. Unboxing it all I finally got see what this thing looks like in real life, and it is stunning. Much better than I thought - even the stands are a nice anodised look, not cheap looking at all.

For me at least, this monitor is huuuge. I immediately did tests for dead pixels (this was a pass) and BLB this was a slight pass:

I have minor bleeding in the bottom right corner, and a tiny patch in the bottom centre.


Slight BLB, but fairly acceptable.. common BLB spot?




COD4 FPS:





Desktop view:





I think I can live with this amount of BLB for now, I am over the moon with this panel. It's very nice. The 144 Hz made all the difference for me in FPS immediately noticed the change in motion.


Thanks for swaying me over to Acer guys, was worth it thumb.gif

BLB seems huge, try doing a pic in the dark with 1/8s exposition time.

Yah that does seem excessive. Mine hardly even looks close to that when I am in complete darkness and ISO on my camera set to 400....which is more than your eye can pick up.
