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

Thanks man! It was active for 6 hours. Definitely someone used it before.

Why do you absolutely want a December's one? The one you've got is flawed?
If it suits you beside being "old" ,sending it back is a really stupid idea considering the probability to receive a far worst monitor.

Well, the Feb 2016 one will have the firmware bug with a row of pixels in the middle disappearing, for once.

But I suppose one can live with that if rest doesn't suck (the usual: uniformity and BLB).

I guess there was a reason why this Monitor was send back from someone, most likely BLB Lottery.. Im almost sure it has BLB or Pixels. But can't check it atm. Gonna check it on Tuesday.

Well the second one is similar to mine.

Is is BLB issue caused by the thin bezel?

No, but iirc it's harder to get a blb -free panel if you have thin bezels.

I don't think i will be ever buying again an IPS monitor. I prefer to use a TN panel with less attractive image quality (not an issue in games and movies tbh) and have zero problems.

I also have the Dell S2716DG TN panel monitor which i replaced with this new XB271HU because i don't have a lot of space on my desk to keep both. I think i might send back the Acer and keep the Dell one. The only thing keeping me from doing this is the text ghosting issue i have with the Dell when i scroll while browsing. I don't know if this is a common issue or if my Dell is defective. I am looking into another forum right now to see if others have this issue.

If they do, i will be in a dilemma. Acer with BLB or Dell with text ghosting?

***, it is impossible to get a good gaming g-sync monitor without issues.

These videos are not mine, but show the problem that i got:

The 2nd one is a bit worse for that guy.
