post #151 of 848
Guys, wait until Samsung or LG enters this arena. Seriously, just be patient.

I'm going to be a causal scrub 1440 60hz for now.

I used an Acer XG270HU before this display, and I can assure you it is the best 1440p 144Hz you can buy right now, same thing as the BENQ XL2730Z, you should go for it:thumb:

EDIT 1 month later: Man I was so wrong, I hope you didn't got one frown.gif

Monitors are very hard to resell tho... so you are stuck with it for quite some time, unless you are willing to take a huge loss on reselling it for when Samsung and LG enter the market with superior products.

Why do we even need to wait for Samsung and lg? We could grab an Eizo Foris FS2735 in a few weeks which would blow any Samsung/LG Monitor out of the water in terms of quality control and performance.

They both suffer pixel inversion otherwise I would be fine with an 8bit TN.

I've been watching this thread, waiting for you guys to confirm all QC issues are gone! rolleyes.gif 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. thumb.gif

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.

I am really looking forward to the Eizo, too, but am a little bit worried about the upper freesync range of 57-144 Hz.

I know that, with the new Crimson Software, there is framedoubling involved below the supported freesync range, but is it as good as the "real" thing?

That is the reason why I still want to wait for the overdrive setting of the Acer to be fixed, if at all possible, because atm I believe, I should go for the Acer if this issue is taken care of.

Obviously a strobing feature will have less blur but I love my monitor. I think there is minimal blur. I'm even betting that you're biased based on the fact OD is disabled and wouldn't be able to tell the difference while comparing the panels side by side while gaming. I'm going to hook up my HDMI and play some BF4 and tell you if there's a difference after I get off work.
Would you want to move to a TN at 27" after being at IPS? I wouldn't. I also don't want to pay 400 more for the same AUO panel. Your experience is wholely different than mine since the first panel I got was really good with no bleed.

Good luck paying 1000 and getting the same stuff.

Even if they fix the overdrive setting there's still the ghosting and blur issues associated with FreeSync on this monitor.
