Acer XB271HU- share your experience and show pics! - Page 718

You can't fix bleeding on a borderless design, the frame is mounted on the display itself. On previous designs this was the other way around, so the frame put pressure on the display border which caused bleeding.

Although you might try loosen the screws, not sure if it will improve anything:

So how is this one superior to the others? In xb270hu you could at least go creative with some duct tape. all you can do with xb271hu is return it and keep playing the lottery.

How should i know? Try an Asus MG279Q if you are not satisfied with your fifth XB271HU or Samsung C24. tongue.gif

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.

Short bump as hasn't been answered yet - would appreciate your input.

Ran into one setting called "Unsupported Timing Retrain" - can't find anything searching for that term on the webz.

Should i keep On or Off?

Also noticed some minor clouding on the bottom right hand corner and want to run the built in burn in mode to see if I can minimize it further.

Any idea how long I am supposed to run it and if I should do so at 100% brightness?
post #7176 of 7382
nah, no amount of burning in can change anything. The panel is "blessed" by excessive BLB. End of story.

here's what I consider perfectly acceptable grey uniformity tho:



it may not look perfect on the photo but I can't spot any obvious temperature shifting IRL = completely acceptable. While the upper part is slightly warmer, the difference isn't as big as in my previous panels and I can't notice it while browsing.

Have you tried it? I wanna try this but i am worried about warranty tbh...

If loosening the screws truly helps i will do it, so if anyone tried it, please come forward smile.gif

I really doubt it. I'm not going to try it anyway, as I want to return the monitor tomorrow.

There are no screws in the back so it's really hard to remove the plastic cover without scratching it and I don't want to scratch things I want to return.

lol that's true.

by the way guys, this panel is sadly amazing enough that it already makes me wanna try another one.

CFG70 looks like poo in comparison. No contest. The colors are fine on it after calibration but the sharpness is just a pain, the AG coating is not as good, there's some coil whine as well.
