Acer XF270HU 1440 IPS 144 Hz Adaptive Sync Thread - Page 72

post #711 of 863
Was having trouble getting the right colors since I don't have a calibrator yet. I decided to use the ICC Profile of the XB270HU which is a pretty identical monitor beside that it is the G-Sync variant.

When I was looking through this thread people were suggesting using the XG270HU but that is a TN Freesync monitor. Whites no longer have a yellow tint. Reds look fantastic! I can see the red around the screen when I die in Overwatch again.

1. Backlight bleed. There is some backlight bleed on the lower right corner. I always use the monitor in a well-lit room and at low brightness (much more comfortable for my eyes) and in those situations it is barely visible. I don't notice it at all during everyday use. Even with the monitor at full brightness it is not as bad. It does look horrible on photos taken by my mobile phone, so now I think that some of the photos circulated on the internet might have been a tad bit exaggerated.

2. Motion blur. I compared it to an Asus PG278Q with ULMB turned off (so a TN panel with a supposed 1ms response time) and using the Blur Busters moving image/map tests it seemed to hold its own. Obviously it can't compete with ULMB or similar motion blur reducing technologies, but I think in most scenarios I would use variable refresh rate over motion blur reduction anyway. There are some people who've reported that it gets much worse with Freesync on, and I will consider returning the monitor if it turns out to be true when I get a new GPU. I did test with overdrive off and it didn't seem to be a "blurry mess" as some other posters have reported though, so it has either been fixed or it is a really specific Freesync bug.

Overall I would give this monitor a 3.5/5. The slight backlight bleed might be an issue for some but it personally doesn't bother me, but the image quality is stunning and the price (I got it for 500€) was very attractive compared to other monitors with similar specs. I would recommend that anyone who can buy it from a shop with a solid returns policy give this monitor a try before turning to the more expensive options.

The low right bleeding is very common on this monitors, my have that too.

I think if that maybe is caused by the exagerated power on LED.

And yes, some pictures can be scary but thats because cameras capture alot more bleeding than we can see.

At the present, i would rate mine (the new version with thinner edges) at 4.5/5. Its just brilliant in every aspect i can think off besides that low right bleeding.

Hey guys!
So I still own the XF270HU and still play competitively on my Nvidia GTX 960.
Today I received the MSI GTX 480 for review - so I thought to wack on FreeSync (as you rightfully said, the option for OD is greyed out).

I have it connected via DP 1.2.
I did tests in CSGO (s I normally do for all my monitor reviews) - did the Blurbusters tests and I fail to see ANY motion blur or ghosting occurring with the AMD GPU.
Was this a driver error then?
As there's certainly no problem with the monitor from my end - NV or AMD card (with or without AMD's FreeSync).

Just thought to report back here - as I always had it in my mind and previously received comments about AMD GPUs causing problems with FreeSync monitors.
To me, the XF270HU still has no flaws - and is still my top monitor recommendation (if you can find it!)

Also FYI - XF270HUA is the borderless replacement smile.gif

That's great news. I wonder what might have happened in the first place, but it's nice to have a confirmation that I will be able to keep the monitor even after upgrading to an AMD CPU because I'm very satisfied with it so far. Thanks for the report.

Honestly, no idea about the problem - and I notice even the slight bit of motion blur/ghosting

I bought it from best buy returned 3 panels hoping I would get one with better quality and then bestbuy banned me.I had no clue bestbuy bans for replacing producta anyhow now I am stuck with a crappy monitor dont know what to do.I like the monitor but the IPS glow in the bottom right is not acceptable. $400 down the trash can.

Could anyone with the new XF270HUA (the zero-frame one) measure the distance from the outer edge of the bezel to where the image actually starts? I'm trying to see how it compares to Dell's Ultrasharp monitors with thin bezels.

Thanks very much thumb.gif .

So is it even thinner than Dell's Ultrasharp Infinity Edge?

Acording to TFTCentral the Dell U2417H has a total of ~5.5mm in the sides while the Acer XB271HK, which I believe has the same zero frame design than the Acer XF270HU, correct me if I'm wrong, has ~8.0mm around the sides.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks again for your answer.
