Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 698

post #6971 of 7371
my smartphone just couldn't do it so here's a pic taken by my Sony camera.




it actually looks pretty much like that IRL. see how the grey bar at the bottom turns from goldish to silverish?

There is no tint in the middle (or if there is - I can't see it, thus it doesn't bother me). Basically, 90% of the screen has excellent uniformity... except that bottom right part.

And again, it's not that huge, either, but using a perfectly uniform 2412m spoiled me over the years and I notice it.

If that damned thing was tinted that way on the LEFT corner, that wouldn't be a problem. You can only spot it on grey backgrounds, pretty much, and I have a bookmarks bar on the left. (I already tried bookmarks bar on the right, but it's not very comfy). Sadly, a lot of forums uses grey backgrounds, and I see this crap a lot.

If this is pretty much what I can expect anyway from good XB271HU panels, then I'll keep it. Question is, if my 2nd piece will be better, I'm getting it anyway cause I got it off a promotion and I have time to compare both before my 14day return privilege runs out.

If there's no other problem I would keep it, as I'm coming from this:

. Again I'm sorry but your photo sucks, it's difficult to judge from here.
I dont think I've see a 100% uniform XB271HU, so if you come from a perfect panel you will be disappointed (uniformity wise).

No offense taken, it's really hard for me to get a right pic of this sucker (then again, it really looks like that - nothing worse than you see on the photo).
post #6974 of 7371
Again it depends on your tolerance, some ppl may be happy with a very bad uniformity as they don't even notice it.
I agree it's frustrating to see an obvious flaw on a 800$ monitor, but unfortunately for us it's hard to say goodbye to IPS 1440p 165Hz Gsync.
Edit: based on your pic you got a good one, try some 50% grey, the temp shift is easier to see on this tint.

Well, I know comparing monitors to TVs makes 0 sense, but:

http://www.rtings.com/tv/tests/picture-quality/gray-uniformity-dirty-screen-effect-dse

what they list as "good uniformity" (samsung JS8500) looks like total crap to me.

Then again, my u2412m was perfect in this department, a cheap IPS dell I use at work is great, a cheap old eizo VA seems perfect, my Dell XPS 13 is perfect... frown.gif only this thing has some hue problems.

Panel lottery is also a factor here.

This is a pretty much common issue with modern panels, you will need a display with uniformity correction to properly avoid this, although the intensity varies between devices.
I've tested three XB271HU, they were free of any pixel defects and dust inclusion, with no or subtle backlight bleeding and decent IPS glow.
But they were just at an average level on white/grey uniformity. At least the contrast ratio was very impressive, lowest was at 1100:1 and the highest at 1300:1 (calibrated).

Here is a picture of the best device:

very nice. I think mine looks a bit worse but not THAT much. if it wasn't for that stupid cool right corner I'd be SUPER happy about it.
post #6979 of 7371
I would suggest to try another device and keep the better one, although it might be unlikely to get a vastly superior (in terms of uniformity) device.
But since they got rid of the terrible quality issues, it might be worth a try.

Another thing:
I've got into the habit of viewing applications in a smaller 16:9 window, since most sites are centered in the middle you will only see a great area with the solid background color at the sides.
In this (almost exclusive scenario) you will be remembered about the average uniformity.

post #6980 of 7371
I thought about it, but to me it feels weird to change what I'm accustomed to - because the product I bought it's flawed...

Then again, 27inch monitors may be a bit harder when it comes to perfect uniformity compared to 24 inch ones.
