Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 713

post #7121 of 7348
Well I have tried a few things now. Reducing the overclock back down to 144hz, reducing my gpu overclock, changing DP cables and trying the monitor on a different computer didn't do anything. The little bright dots are still all there. I am fairly sure they aren't dead pixels, they look to be maybe about 1/4 the size of a pixel. There is one or two that is visible up to about 18 inches away, but only if you find it up close first. I am guessing there is maybe 60 or so of them on the screen. It's much easier to see them if its completely dark in the room with an all black screen. Any idea what these could be? Its like dust all over the monitor but it's definitely something with the panel. I had the exact same thing with a PG279Q i returned to newegg but they weren't ever able to find any dead pixels. Can anyone else try having a really close look at a black screen in a dark room and see if they see any REALLY small bring dots all around? I have until friday to RMA but they are completely unnoticeable during normal use so I might just keep it. Thanks!

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.

actually, my expectations drop, not grow tongue.gif

But nah, I'm past the "final attempt" mark. There's a saying that insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome. After 5 attempts, another try would be insanity in my book. Shame, because it is a beautiful looking monitor.

Hi!

Does Acer XB271HU really have the same panel as ASUS PG279Q or is there a different model for the Acer one? Looking at the pictures, most of the PG279Q have a yellowish tint while the Acer ones have silver making me believe there must be a difference in the model as well? Also, I read somewhere that the latency is higher with the Acer monitor as well than the ASUS one - is this true?

One more question - how do you know what the manufacturing date is on the ASUS monitor? I saw a box recently and it had a sticker on the side but there was no mention of any date, e.g. no DECEMBER 2016 or anything. Just a serial number.

Hello everyone.

I'm here to post my own experience with the XB271HU.

After checking out all 713 pages of this post and looking at all images posted here i got a pretty good idea of what is going on with this monitor. Of course i could not read all comments, there were thousands, but i read a lot of them.

So:

Build: December 2016
Brightness: 25 (above that is hurting my eyes)

The pictures were taken with by phone, HTC One M8 and are from the viewing distance.

The first picture was taken at ISO 1600 but is over exaggerated by the camera.




The second picture was taken at ISO 800 and it is much closer to what i am seeing.




I could not use less than ISO 800 because nothing is detected by my phone. I guess its camera is not that good at night.

During normal use, i don't see anything of the above it is great. But when i play a game, the bottom right is noticeable in dark scenes. For example see below a scene of Far Cry Primal. I dived into the water which is very dark and these two pictures show almost exactly what i am seeing.






And lastly this is picture under normal daytime scene in Far Cry Primal.




So, thoughts?

I've used it for about 2 days now, around 12-14 total hours of use. Shall i give it time? That bottom right is kind of irritating to me =/

Never accept something that bothers you. It will never stop.

That being said, I'd not be irritated by such BLB.

Is this entire thread dedicated to BLB issues?

Since BLB is a main feature of the monitor, yes.

Hi, yesterday i received Acer XB271HU from Amazon for 785 euro and i suspect its not a new. There are some hair inside the box and the box looks very old and had no tape on the sides. However monitor itself has no real visible prints of using, but anyway i feel not really good about it. I paid full price without any discounts and got that. So i prolly send it back soon. Can't check atm if it has any BLB or dead Pixels, but soon will do.

My questions:

1) is there a software to check how long this Monitor was active?

2) Anyone here from Germany who bought recently XB271HU and it was a new revision? Im curious from what shop should i buy it, because Amazon did real **** with me this time.
Btw my was manufactured in Februar 2016,i think its old. I want something newer.

they sure have sent you an old piece from the depths of their storages.
