Acer XF270HU 1440 IPS 144 Hz Adaptive Sync Thread - Page 50

From this Amazon review which is making my heart cry: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R1HP7RNQX7AO1Y/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B0173PEX34

Yes, this monitor suffer from motion blur issues and higher than normal input lag.

I've been saying this from the beginning, this monitor sucks. If you can look past its issues then it's a gorgeous display with great IQ (assuming you got a perfect panel, which is another issue in on itself), but I will always recommend the XL2730Z over this one all day long which despite being a TN panel does have image quality comparable to the best gaming IPS monitors on the market thanks to its native 8 bit depth with no dithering display and its great motion clarity.

If you insist on IPS panels I can only recommend the FS2735, other than that the MG279Q if you don't want to spend on the Eizo premium offering and if you aren't bothered to change the monitor EDID to change the Freesync range to 58-144Hz

I'd also urge people to wait for new DisplayPort 1.4 monitors with 3440x1440p 144Hz+ and the possibility of a gaming OLED monitor early next year if they don't REALLY need one right now.

It's amazing how Acer can deliver a great product with the gsync variant, but an absolute garbage one with this freesync version. The XB270HU has great response times with zero overshoot and it uses the same panel. It's like those guys didn't even care at all about this monitor...

I know right, when I bought my two XF270HUs when I had a XG270HU (wonderful monitor btw) I thought I was upgrading but it was actually a downgrade for me.

The OSD had a lot of graphical glitches, it was cringe worthy at best. I bought the monitor 2 weeks after its Amazon release, which by the way was nowhere to be found anywhere, it seemed to be an Amazon exclusive, and it was eerie to see that Acer's website had no information about the monitor when I was looking for help on the issues I was having.

I bought 2 of these monitors and both were plagued with issues, plus there were no manuals, no documentation, no presentation site, NOTHING, it was like the monitor was launched by a couple guys from their garage working for Acer or something.

They didn't even bothered to advertise the monitor anywhere, and I think they didn't because they knew it was a pile of bull biological wastes and it just wasn't worth it.

Thread Starter 
I wonder how much of your experience when it first released was addressed by ACER or f it was just poor QC. For quite sometime I haven't seen really anyone else who owns them come here or have complained. I looked online for actual use of the monitor and did not see anything wrong, I've also read other owners who do not have issues too. So not sure if this is still an issue.

Alright i been off the forums for a long time lol , but anyways since 2007 i been buying monitors that cost over 700$ for gaming purposes PC and consoles and well im done with that after my gateway XHD3000 died just over 2 years from when i got it(2009-2011). Few months ago my ViewSonic VX2835wm (2007-2016) died completely . So i been using a 24inch samsung for now until 10 days ago microcenter had a LG 34UM95-P no box for $370 bought it and well backlight bleed is just insane lol might have to return it frown.gif. So doing some browsing online came up with the acer xf270hu and so many issues from just reading few pages here and for $550 it should't have any issues like the ones mentioned here. I really don't want to spend more than 500$..

So, it seems that the Asus MG279Q is still the best IPS 2K 144hz gaming monitor?

For Freesync the Eizo is probably the best but it is far more expensive than anything else.

$1300? If that's within your budget, then you're probably gaming at 4k with a top end g-sync monitor/nvidia GPU anyway; or at least you should be. It seems that for the average consumer, it's either this Acer XF270HU or the ASUS MG279Q

2K is 1080p on a different aspect ratio, not 1440p.

The best IPS monitor is the Eizo Foris FS2735 and comes with the best price tag as well.

The best all around 1440p 144Hz panel is the BenQ XL2730Z, I upgraded from a XF270HU to the BenQ, never looked back.

Sorry, I should have been more specific in that I was referring to the 2560x1440p, 144hz, IPS, Freesync bracket. The BenQ looks fairly nice at a decent price, too bad it isn't IPS.
