Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 712

post #7111 of 7347
here's a quick comparison of all three of my Dec 2016 monitors. Be aware that they were taken from different distance and sometimes different lighting, so they differ a bit from RL, but they are never overexposed a lot. What you see on them is perfectly visible IRL in the same spots, however, sometimes it's less intense, sometimes, it's more. However, it is very visible.



1st one had many BLB spots but they were actually less severe than on the photo (this one I think I overexposed a bit). Acceptable? yes, I think so. BLB was obviously there but unless it was 100% black room, I wasn't aware of it.

2nd one is underexposed, the left lower corner was actually quite obvious in the dark, BUT I could NOT see it in daylight. Acceptable? on the edge of yes and no, but ultimately could live with it.

3rd one: this one is more or less properly exposed. BLB is big on this one. Lower left corner is sadly visible in daylight on black backgrounds.

From best to worst: 1st, 2nd, 3rd ---> where 1st was fully acceptable and 2nd was so-so.

Now, for white balance, best to worst: 3rd, 1st, 2nd ---> where 3rd was actually excellent.

In other words, if I could pair 1st monitor's backlight with 3rd monitor's uniformity, I'd consider myself perfectly happy! but sorry, nope smile.gif



Sorry for much negativity but I'm just disappointed, that's all. I'm turning my attention to other models. Congratulations to all that have won the lottery. It's a great monitor if you get one that does not bother you.

I know, this was just to mock the small bad quality photos that suggest abnormal glow. tongue.gif

Never done this kind of mounting, but you might assume that it would change the emphasis, cause more strain at the corners.

Not intentionally, but according to your post history you were already dissatisfied and prejudiced. The "too picky" comment might be exaggerated, but since this monitor has other advantages than uniformity and not every unit is flawed it has a little truth.

Yep, I guess that's true. my 1st and 2nd Dec2016 ones were mounted on a stand and placed on a desk, btw. smile.gif

I'm not saying you are lying or intentionally trying to spread FUD.
I tested three recent devices (from December 2016), none of them got excessive glow, bleeding or quality control issues like dead pixel and dust inclusion.
Uniformity was and is a problem, never denied that.
I might be just lucky or you were unlucky with your units.

However, my point is: someone who is interested in those 144hz IPS display will be deterred by bad user reports and might end up buying a device that is even worse (i was in that situation). tongue.gif

I agree, my intention however is not to spread false/improper info, but to give my genuine feelings on the purchase.

Am I picky? i don't honestly think so. I think I can accept a LOT more BLB than most people here do. On the pics I posted, I'd accept 1st and 2nd despite some BLB, the only BLB that makes me cringe is when it's visible when my lights are turned on. That's my "point of NOPE".
White balance... I'm not THAT picky. Like I said, it never bothered me in any device I owned or seen, and I've seen/owned dozens. even my u2412m isn't perfect here, left upper part is reddish, rest is more white, but it definitively isn't noticeable without looking for it.

Wish people would stop complaining about BLB and help a brother out:

Any recommendations on hooking up Display Port to USB-C (Thunderbolt 3)? I was planning on a converter, but now see this cable that literally goes from Display Port to USB-C. But will it support an overclocked speed of 165Hz?

My other video options on my laptop are HDMI (which is a no-go since it's an older HDMI), and a mini Display Port (which is already used by a 21:9 monitor). So I'm going to use my USB-C / Thunderbolt video port... but was wondering the best method to connect from that to the monitor's Display Port.

ROFL!!!

Funny, but unfortunately I cannot help you out. Never used Thunderbolt.

Then why not stick with one of the first two??
I'm still sticking to my original comment. My monitor still has some BLB, but guess what?? I can;t see it while I am gaming at night or during the day. So, the refresh rate, good color, and GYSNC outweigh the slight BLB. I have a buddy that has a Dell Ultra Sharp with similar issues, but he deals with it.

Go get a TN panel if you want good uniformity (Straight on Viewing angle) and no BLB.

Yep....you got me....ACER employee here....

Do I need to repeat myself 9001 times?
The first one had blue corner and a strange OVAL in the middle.
The 2nd one was half yellowish, half blue-ish.
Both are unacceptable.

That's nice. Too bad I can see it while I am gaming during the day, so... how is your comment actually related to the situation? you obviously have a better panel then I do with my final attempt.

I do not intend to "get over" something that is an obvious manufacturing flaw that should not be there for that place, especially not for 850$. You really sound like an Acer employee man tongue.gif

No thanks, I'd rather stick to... every other IPS screen I've seen in my life. All of them are perfectly acceptable with uniformity. No need for any TN panels. tongue.gif

Well it seems like the solution is pretty simple....get another panel manufacture rolleyes.gif. Maybe try the Asus....you might end up only trying 4 times, but no promises.

I'd really like to see a picture on how you see the BLB while gaming, but that might be too difficult to capture. You must have you brightness jacked to 100....mine's at 25 thumb.gif.

Don't forget that your expectations grow as you send back monitors after monitors.
I understand your pain but it seems like you will never be satisfied.
As a final attempt I would order 2 or 3 monitors (or as many you can afford) and keep the best one. If even the best one is bad to you then stop, you have to put a limit at some point.
