Acer XF270HU 1440 IPS 144 Hz Adaptive Sync Thread - Page 55

post #541 of 910
I had several XL2730Z's and returned them all for various reasons. It was my first choice. These gaming monitors are turning me into a serial returner. If you can get one without defects the MG278Q is the best one. Good luck with that. The XL2730Z is nice but it has issues that shouldn't exist on such an expensive product. An ugly and very noticeable bluish white streak of light bleed along the bottom bezel exists on most XL2730Z's. Clouding on all samples I had. The highest OD setting is completely useless with inverse ghosting beyond belief. Inversion artifacts are very noticeable and create an effect that is similar to motion blur. The headphone jack does not work at 144hz and that is a design flaw unique to the XL2730Z. If you ask Benq support about this they will lie to you. Firmware is buggy and half baked. With any one of these overpriced gaming monitors it comes down to the sample you receive and which set of design flaws and defects will bother you the least. As I said if you can get an MG278Q with no defects it's the best one. Everything works and the inversion artifacts are less noticeable. It would be nice if it had a gamma adjustment in the OSD but that is really the only fault I could find. Unfortunately I think Asus's QC may be the most inconsistent of all.

I can confirm the inverse ghosting issue, it only happens with Nvidia cards for some reason.

When I swapped my 290 for my GTX 1070 it was beyond noticeable, as soon as I install my 290 back it goes back to normal.

Can someone please try this? Because I remember someone EARLY in this thread managed to "Improve" the overdrive, but could not replicate their outcome second time.

This is the instructions on the *XL2720Z* but I want you to try it on the 30Z. I have a feeling you won't be able to do this with freesync as it requires the monitor to refresh itself.

1) SAVE Standard mode, with your normal settings (e.g.blur reduction off, sharpness 5, CV=10, all that stuff) into gaming preset #1 (e.g. for S-switch button 1). Save this into whichever preset corresponds to S-switch quick/gaming preset #1.
Keep this test running fullscreen (preferably in google chrome) so you get full framerate.

2) Enable blur reduction.
3) Go to AMA and move the slider from high, to off or premium then back to high and confirm. I don't know if the XL2730Z updates the AMA the INSTANT the slider is moved or only after it is confirmed. If is only after confirm, then select off or premium, confirm, then go back to high.

4) close OSD.
5) Activate profile#1 (that you had already saved). This should instantly disable blur reduction.

6) look at the testufo page again for any inverse ghosting changes.

Has the overdrive changed any from when you were doing step 1?

*edit* this really should have been posted in the XL2730Z thread, oops frown.gif

The Xl2730Z also has the light bleed along the bottom right bezel but its not showing up in the picture. It's worse when the monitor warms up.

Hi everyone. I just created the acount here,to ask a question if someone knows mb the answer.
I have bought acer xf270hu , no dead pixels , minimal backlight bleed in lower right corner. I like all about the monitor except the thing that monitor searches input method.
In other words when i power it up/ restart pc i wait about 4-6 sec till monitor searches input method, you can see in upper right corner that monitor is listing all his possible conections then goes to dvr.

Is that normal? Can somone that own this monitor take a look if yours does the same?
Thx

It's normal if your cold booting the monitor not if it is in standby. I s the bleed you have better than the picture I posted above?
post #547 of 910
Looking at the last picture , i guess mine is almost same except the top corner. Ill take a picture for you if interested..

It does search for input method all the time ... Only if i press the power button on monitor to turn on and off it wont search.
So you say yours does the same?

Its kinda anoying... Input search takes like 5 seconds , and then 4 sec till windows boots up. If it wouldnt search for it , the pc would be booting lot faster...

I haven't noticed the issue your having. I rarely shut down my computer so it's either in sleep or hibernate. When I click my mouse the monitor comes right up. I'll take a closer look this evening and let you know if I see anything different. This sounds like it could be anything really not necessary the monitor.

And yes a picture would help thanks.
post #549 of 910
this is the video of what i mean on the input search ... and i guess you can see what type of bleed do i have. Brightness is 60. Idkn i feel like 30 is way way 2 dark.

Mine isn't doing that but it doesn't look too unusual to me. I have my MB splash screen turned off so maybe that makes a difference. Could just be that your mb/gpu does something a little different from a cold boot and the signal drops for a few seconds.
