Turns out mine isn't as perfect as I thought... While the white uniformity is good, the lower right corner is tinted blue. It literally drives me nuts when reading because my eyes pick up a change in background color every line I read....
Should I return it?
also the BLB is worse than I thought (i should have tested in pitch black room).
Slightly overexposed this time, it's not as bad IRL, but I made it overexposed intentionally to show all "leak"spots, no matter how small:
The BLB means pretty much squat to me (I never play in darkness, and in dim light it's impossible to see it) but it WILL hurt resale value.
The blueish "right side" sucks though. I do a lot of browsing and I sadly notice it a lot. I don't mind slight irregularities of white but this one kinda "hits you", very easy to notice if you drag something gray from left corner to right, near the right side it suddenly gets blue-ish. It's quite significant sadly. I wouldn't mind minor "colder" whites there but the gray turns blueish, for instance, in a very obvious way.
Since there's a promotion in one of the supermarkets near me (400PLN cheaper), I ordered another XB271HU for comparison. We'll see if it's any better.
it's really hard to catch this issue on a photo, but try to do a quick glance from left to right and you'll see how kinda gold tinted grey becomes blue tinted.
Doesn't help that there's a slightly "warmer" spot RIGHT BEFORE the colder spot, which contributes to the "shock" for the eyes when you're reading.
Then again, those things (both) are very minor and judging from the pics in this thread - way less problematic than massive BLB and huge uniformity issues these monitors tend to exhibit at times.
I'll compare it with the second one and probably keep the better.Edited by Astreon - 4/16/17 at 4:07am
