Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 717

post #7161 of 7380
You can enable it by holding the leftmost button when turning the monitor on. On the then shown settings screen you can enable it - actually it gets enabled simply by accessing that menu.

Once active it will run the burn in mode if the monitor is active but no other signal is received (PC powered down).

Just no clue if I should run it at 100% brightness (guess so) and for how long.

Thanks, I'll try it out, maybe it will help with the BLB.

Since that post I've found multiple issues with that monitor. But yeah, uniformity is good. No BLB. Cons include coil whine and blurry text, which sadly kill it in my eyes. the XB271HU sadly looks way better

Maybe I should try with Asus MG279Q. It's a freesync one but in mu country it's 1000 PLN cheaper than XB271HU (XB271HU = 3500 PLN, Asus MG279Q = 2500 PLN).

Spending 1000 PLN on g-sync seems silly.

A uniformity photo of the fifth XB271. Asus MG279Q uses the V2.3 panel, don't need to add any more info besides good luck. tongue.gif
~200€ is the default extra charge for the G-Sync module and as always; don't pay extra if you won't use it.

My last isn't good regarding BLB, as you can see on the photos, but it's excellent otherwise.

I would just return it but it's a piece with great white uniformity, fully acceptable, it's just that the BLB is a bit over the top. >__> And there's literally nothing, NOTHING on the market that's worth putting interest in atm if you want an 144hz IPS. Sadly.

Either way, here's my 5th again, mounted on the stand this time (Masochism I guess):


So should i press the plastic bezel just above the power button?
