Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 704

post #7031 of 7374
I like 144hz, tho. Not crucial, but I like it.

Powergate, does your monitor also show this strange "oval"?
post #7032 of 7374
No, but this also a pretty unrealistic usage, viewing a black screen from a big angle.
If your second XB271HU is still going to be delivered, you should compare it with this model to see if you got a poor or defective unit.

Thanks. I'll get the 2nd (or 4rd, chronologically tongue.gif) piece tomorrow or @ thursday. Will post pics.

on the oval, it does not bother me visually, but it frightens me that something may be pressing against the display or something like that.

Might be just uneven placed light diffuser, i guess this takes a big part in general brightness uniformity, maybe also in white/grey uniformity.

100% agree with this.

I think we have established that you will be very hard to find a "perfect" panel. I consider mine fantastic, but it still has slight backlight bleed in two corners. But it doesn't bother me at all as I don't game on a black screen...

I shelled out the 700 bucks for the 144 Hz and Gsync. Plus your graphics card has to push that many frames for it to even be a benefit. If you can't hit 144 fps, then 144 hz wont do any good, but at least Gsync will sync everything up. To me the fast response, refresh, and Gsync outweigh the slight flaws.

It actually works and is officially display port certified. That's why I recommended it over the Amazon basics one I bought. That one works too but I will not suggest something to you that might not work.

I called up my local Costco where I bought it. You can RMA it once twice three times and still return it within the 90 days. I bought two. One is better quality than the other. Example with brighter and I like looking at that one more than the other one. The first one that I opened which is on the left is great it's just one dead pixel. 1 1440p you don't notice that dead pixel at all. But I'm scared to RMA because it's a send in and wait rather than Dell send out then send old one when you are happy with replacement.

Regardless I was comparing the ****tier one with the dead pixel to my Dell s2716dg and it was enough to justify selling the Dell. So if I can get a perfect better panel don't see it happening but yeah if I do that's awesome.

thank you for the info. it's definitively visible even in smaller angles:



If it's really the diffuser, it may indeed contribute to the problem, I think. The "blue zone" starts exactly where the diffuser "light focus" ends...

Unfortunately I won't receive the 4th piece tomorrow, I'll have to wait one more day. frown.gif

After the Samsung fiasco I guess I'll just have to play the lottery till I win. There's NOTHING coming up! It has to be this monitor.
