You may want to edit out the serials of the stickers in the first and second pictures.

I've a blue gradient at the rigth corner of the screen, I wonder if this could be caused by bezel pressure?

My 4rd XB271HU arrived.

Quick summary:

1. no dead pixels
2. a dust speck, but I made it fall down by tapping, so no dust specks in the end.
3. some BLB at bottom corner, but not yellow.
4. the uniformity is very similar to the last one, but more evenly distributed, there is no spot that totally stands out which makes it way easier at the eyes.

I guess I got more or less the same ***, but this one was 100$ cheaper (promotion), and it feels less annoying, so I'll probably end up keeping it. Not sure yet, but I don't think you can get perfection with those screens.

Grey uniformity:



BLB




What do you think? There's some BLB but that's pretty meaningless to me (I always play in a well lit room). The grey uniformity shows some yellow stain on the left side, but I find it less annoying. And it's cheaper.

@Powergate, do you find this one better? tongue.gif

After a bit of use, I noticed that the uneven tinting (left side more yellow than right side) is almost as annoying as the blueish corner in my 1st one, lol.

Man, this monitor paired with a 980 TI, ULMB, Fast Sync, and 120Hz dominates BF1! I get some people asking what is ULMB. They never knew until it was too late for them. Takes 4-8ms for me become clear to them, but I already wasted them sometime in history.

I think you could get a far better panel than this. How were the 3 you had before this?
BLB seems good but this temperature shift would drive me nuts.

the 1st was godawful
the 2nd one had dead pixel (it was 2nd hand tho) - I got refunded
3rd would be perfect if it wasn't for stupid blue tint in lower right corner
4th one sadly feels crap after a while, the upper part is yellow - discolored.

3rd and 4th are Dec 2016 builds.
Such a shame.
post #7049 of 7406
My first one was similar to the one you got now:

The 2nd one I'm using now has the blue tint on the right, but It's less annoying to me than the temp shift in the middle :

Edit: Both were Dec 2016 to.

your 2nd is my 3rd
and your 1st is my 4th!

biggrin.gif:D:D:D

Funny stuff. I plugged my 3rd one back - can't lie, it looks 10000000000x better. If it wasn't for that stupid blue corner, it'd be 100% perfect regarding uniformity:(

either way, the 4th is definitively a no-go. The 3rd one scares me with this stuff:



what the hell is that!? In pitch black I can already see the shape of it on the edges. !?!?!?

Poweredge said it might be the effect of an unevenly placed diffuser. To me, it looks like an alien that's ready to hatch, lol
