It seems like 27" 1440p gaming monitor tech is still in its infancy -- and all the IPS panels in my budget have a 30% chance of being total trash.
I like the idea of having an 1440p IPS at home after using a Z30i at work for the last year or so, I just don't want to deal with tying up $600 (or $1200!) with the ordering/returning process.
How is the blur on this monitor? Dargonplay seems to think it's bad... Is it worth waiting for a ULMB or whatever -type function to come out? I'd rather not support nvidia any more than I have to.
Coming from a BENQ XL2420TE to an Acer XG270HU I did not missed the blur reduction feature, (BenQ AMA Premium) but then coming from a XG270HU to this XF270HU I certainly did, when using FreeSync the blur is beyond absurd, I've had FreeSync disabled now as I just can't use the display with so much blur, it makes it look like a 1080p panel.
The biggest problem thought is that The overdrive setting on this monitor is broken, I'll no doubt return it as soon the Eizo becomes available.
OH, almost forgot to mention the huge amounts of backlight bleed and clouding, but then again you could win the IPS lottery and not worry about that.
If you want 1440p the Acer XG270HU is definitely amazing, best offering aside from the BENQ XL2730Z, but if you want 1440p IPS, do yourself a favor and pay the 1000$ price for an Eizo, at least with this price I expect great quality control, in their page they promise to deliver all panels without any backlight bleed/clouding/IPS glow, if true is very worthy of such price tag, happy to pay 400$ extra for the perfect monitor.Edited by Dargonplay - 1/8/16 at 12:36am
