I picked up this monitor for myself, the BenQ XL2730Z and have my older 1440p Korean monitor on the third setup until I figure out which monitor to buy for that one.

Out of the box this monitor looked superior to the BenQ XL2730Z (out of the box) but worse than the Korean IPS monitor. Once calibrated, the Acer was not as accurate as the BenQ XL2730Z, but the quality of the panel was better (TN vs IPS).

Once I used it for a while, I have sent it back, and will be ordering another BenQ XL2730Z .

Everything about the BenQ, from the stand, menu options, and performance was better. The only thing that was worse, was the TN panel. My 1440p Korean monitor, still has a superior panel to both.

IMO it was not worth the difference in price. Not even close. I could buy a BenQ on sale + a 1440p Korean monitor for the cost of this Acer.

Well, ok. Color accuracy TN being better than IPS is something new to me but each to his own. I would understand saying that one prefer TN due to lack of glow and BLB (valid points), but image/color accuracy is imo IPS. But what suits you best smile.gif.

Btw. what panel does BenQ XL2730Z have? Also AUO one? It is 144Hz 1440p TN so I guess that would be same as PG278Q, right?

Can anyone meassure for me space between red legs of the stand? Thanks!

I am talking about any Async, forgot to type gsync along with freesync, my mistake.

What is there not to understand about accuracy of colors on a panel? The Acer IPS panel had a superior look to it, as all IPS panels do when standing next to a TN panel. TN panels have a distinct look that goes beyond just the color reproduction.

Perhaps there is more information about Acer's IPS panel, but it's clear to me it's a bottom of the barrel panel. It's color reproduction once calibrated didn't match that of the Korean IPS (calibrated), or the BenQ ( high end TN - once calibrated). It also had yellow light bleed. So perhaps I just got a junk panel and should have returned it no matter what. The stand also had less options, moved around the desk easier and wobbled more than the BenQ.

The BenQ looked like complete dog**** out of the box, unusable, but had the ability to calibrate it down to RGB (which was needed). I would also not recommend that monitor if it wasn't for this fact.

In the end, I simply gave my opinion. As I stated, perhaps I just got a messed up one, but I don't want to bother trying another for the price. I am lucky enough to have options when choosing hardware (Two GTX 970's and one R9 390). I understand most people don't, and I also understand Gsync comes with a premium thanks to Nvidia.

Just giving me opinion.

Not for gaming, but without a doubt it's superior for color accuracy/reproduction. Not even close. As I said, perhaps the one I got from Acer was junk, and should have been returned for a proper one. I didn't bother checking or caring.

Yeah, I'm hoping my local Fry's gets these in so I can just drive down to the store if I need to return it.

Komputronik according to Acer-Poland will have them in January. X-kom is only one who will get them in Poland before Christmas.

Ah, damn smile.gif Then I must wait a littler bit longer. I think I try another two PGs, my retailers should get around 30 on stock next week so I really hope this time it will be October models. Unfortunately seems this will not be a guarantee that I will get a good one, however I think chances are much bigger that with September panels smile.gif

I agree, TN panels are far away from IPS color accuracy and I'm not talking about gama and color shift. I had PG278Q and it was horrible. Use TN for 27" panels is a barbarism. For games OK, but for work no way...
