What exactly do you mean by that? I really want to try these settings out but am also having trouble getting my settings to save. Everything resets when I shut down. You'd think they'd make these things a lot more " user friendly " with these price tags lol. But also I have not much experience tweaking them as well.

I sold this monitor long ago, so I don't really remember all too well but I think that in order to save the settings you have to ignore all default presets and directly choose User Preset, then you calibrate your settings from there, and then you use the function on the OSD that says "Save setting" into the User preset... I think? Can't remember, but it was something like that.

Im getting mine on 7/09/2016 and i just have a amd 7850 2 gig to use till i can save for the rx-480. Could someone please tell me the tests i need to take to insure i get a decent monitor as best buy has a 15 day return policy. Or is there a video that shows how to test and calibrate it. any help would be most appreciated. I seen linus tech give rave reviews about the gsync model of this and then i find this thread after i bought it so now im scared as this is costing me 700 bucks with taxes and warrenty. (got the 4 year one). I have a feeling this is a crap shoot till i get a good one and so would love to know the battery of tests i should do. Thanks!

Just check for any dead/stuck pixels - then do a backlight bleed test on a dark back background with brightness up full.... i dont think the 7850 can test free-sync.....
post #468 of 863
do you look with a magnifying glass for a dead pixel or is it apparent? and how exactly do you do a bleed test? Thanks for repling!

Ok..I was able to find a dead pixel test and light bleed test..thanks!

Btw is try my user color temp and see if you like it, also did the yellowish thing got fixed by reducing the yellow Hue?

I can perfectly switch the Overdrive to Disabled, Normal and Extreme, maybe the bug about you are talking about was fixed biggrin.gif

So I've been lurking. I've got one of these monitors on the way. It appears that one of two things is going on with rizzotti91 's rig. Either he's using a GPU that does not support freesync or he's using a different cable that may or may not be DP spec.

Dragon, have you tried using a DP spec cord listed on their website? If not, I have one one the way. Is it a possibility that the cable that is supplied with the monitor is not up to spec? Or maybe rizzotti91 is using one that isn't, giving him a false positive?

The XF270HU the Overdrive function will work through DP if you have an Nvidia GPU, using other cables wont make any difference, at least it didn't for me. The only way to make use of the Overdrive function while having an AMD GPU with current drivers with FreeSync support is to use the monitor through HDMI or any other input, but this wont allow you to run the high resolutions/refresh rates that DP would.

The XF270HU is a terrible monitor all around IMO.
