Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 709

post #7081 of 7389
Just wondering - can you change the settings so that the screen automatically comes up once the PC is powered on and turns off once the PC gets turned off?
The screen itself seems to deactivate by itself but then the power LED is shining orange all the time.

Sounds stupid but I hate the buttons and don't wanna press the power on/off one each time I use it.

I don't think so, it only goes to standby when there's no signal. And in standby, yep - orange LED all the time.

There are a few that look like they might be dead pixels, but some are even smaller and I have no idea what they are. I recently returned a PG279Q to newegg for this same reason, but I thought they were all just dead pixels and I had a weird panel. I can't really see this being the case though since this acer has almost the exact same issue, and I find it hard to believe there is THAT many faulty pixels on the monitor. The dots aren't visible unless you have your eyes a few inches from the screen. Even after doing a dead pixel check i didn't notice them until a few days later when I was doing another quick look. After seeing the one my eyes sort of focused and I can see a bunch of the small white dots all over. They only seem visible on a black background. Any ideas? I've gone through a few of these monitors as well as PG279Qs, X34 and PG348qs and I can't seem to get one without at least 1 dead pixel. This just seems really weird though, as its so many spots and it's not super obvious. I really don't want to return it but if it is a bunch of fault pixels I think I might have to. Thanks!

could you show a close-up photo?

Some others may be able to comment better than me, but I'm not sure these are dead pixels. From my experience, you can easily spot dead pixels from further than a couple inches. They are usually fairly noticeable when looking at a uniform screen color.

I'll take a close look at mine tomorrow

Thank you. I am going to try sone stuff out tonight. Reduce the 166 back to 144hz, change dp cables, reduce my gpu overclock and try a different dp port. Ill report back with results.

I tried with my phone earlier but it was tough to get a decent shot since it has to be dark to see them easier. Any suggestions on how to take a decent photo? I only have my cell phone camera.

Meanwhile, I guess I won't be receiving my 5th one tomorrow (shop slacks off), but here's a comparison between the u2412m and my best XB271HU, both are displaying same page, XB271HU on the left)



is the 2412m perfect? well, nope, but I can't really see any faults with a naked eye unless I specifically compare different parts of the screen and even then it's not a big difference. That's more or less what I'm used to when it comes to IPS displays.

on XB271HU, the tint difference is huge, it can also pretty much jump from yellow to blueish within several centimeters, which I find unacceptable.

My 5th one WILL be the last one. either it's good (doubtful by now), or I quit and wait for Samsung CHG70 (or CFG75, for the matter - if the purple smearing stuff is fixed in the G-sync revision, it may be a winner - I don't really mind the smaller size/resolution too much).

I'm not sure if this will make a difference, but have you tried to calibrate the white point on your RGB gains?

I to had some yellowish tint, and as soon as I properly calibrated the display....perfectly white. Yours may be more of a uniformity issue, but I still think some proper calibrating may fix a little of the color issue....maybe. To be honest, the left doesn't look horrible, but who am i to say. I'm not terribly picky as the colors are amazing.

of course smile.gif however, because of the drastic difference of temperature between the corner and the middle, it would always look bad.

I would live with it but I had the "oval in the middle" problem so I had to return it.

Okay here are two pics from my PG279Q that I returned. It is very similar to what I am seeing on the acer.




On the one image I have what I thought was a dead pixel circled, but you can see all around it the slight white dots. This is what I am seeing, but they are incredibly hard to spot even in the dark. you really need to look for them.

The other image if you look closely you can see the little white dots all around. This is what I am seeing on the acer as well. I find it really hard to believe I got 2 monitors with that many dead pixels.
