Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 714

post #7131 of 7356
February 2016 is indeed very old, most recent version is December 2016, probably 2017 by now.

You can check the uptime on the service menu: poweroff display -> press left button and power on.

I believe January 2017 is the newest. Acer reported some problems with parts in March, IIRC the manufacuring was temporarily stopped.

Astreon, i got a personal tip for you. tongue.gif
The Acer XF270HUA uses the same interior as the XB271HU, it is simply the same device without G-Sync but FreeSync instead and costs 250-300€ less.

That's unfortunate, maybe ordering one from a neighboring country?
It's a pretty good deal for ~500€, since you get a newer 144hz panel with less quality control issues, makes even bleeding or uniformity issues a lot more acceptable.

By the way, you're sure it's not the M270 v2.3 display?

interesting! Well, if it ever appears in my country, I might give it a try. I bought samsung CFG70 today. While my initial feelings were "meh", they kinda improved after the calibration. It does have the green trailing thing though (mfg January 2017, I think), though. It's quite subtle (I could only reproduce it on a small zone of the CS picture) but it's there.

It's not so bad i guess, although the 1080p would be a major downside for me. Is the uniformity and bleeding better than the Acer?
post #7140 of 7356
oh, most definitively.

BLB - zero.
Uniformity is sort of weird, IRL feels great, but on solid grey there's a weird brigther vertical line in the middle (1cm width). I guess it's ok.

1080p isn't the best things ever, but at 70cm it's completely acceptable. if you lean in closer, the graininess hits you though.

Because it's smaller than XB271HU, the pixel pitch isn't awful at 1080p.
