IPS glow doesn't vary from panel to panel, so I'm not sure what you are expecting to achieve..

If "IPS glow" is the only problem you have, then... well, you have no problem at all...

Hello everyone,

I just purchased this monitor and since I'm at work, can only test it for now on my work laptop which is docked in a docking station that has DP and DVI outputs and obviously has Intel integrated graphics. Unfortunately over DP, the screen randomly goes black quite often, but the power led doesn't change. Over DVI I don't see this issue but I can't run it at 1440p and any other refresh rate besides 60hz like that. One more thing is that over DP, if I select 100hz the screen goes to No Signal. At home, I currently have an nvidia gpu so what is the highest refresh rate I could theoretically run it at? I'm going to also test it out once I get home but if I get the same issues I'm going to return it.

EDIT : It works fine at home, sorry for hijacking this thread!

Thanks.

Hey WannaBeOCer and anyone else who has used this Acer and the Asus MG279Q - are the colors of the Acer equal to the Asus once you get a proper ICC profile installed? Which one has better color without an ICC profile? I just found out those profiles don't work in some games...

Whites are better on the Asus monitor for sure. When I use my HTC 10 for a while and go back to using my monitor I notice the yellow whites right away. I can't complain though since I got this monitor for $375, it has zero frame and a wider Freesync range out of the box without any mods.

My XFX R9 390X should be arriving in the next few days so I'll be able to enjoy Freesync. Both had the same amount of IPS glow. This monitor has 4 USB ports which I prefer since two are on the left hand side. If it wasn't for the $375 price I got the Acer for I would of stayed with the Asus since it's not difficult to increase the freesync range.

Acer XF270HUA Pros:
- FreeSync range 40-144Hz (23-144Hz with Crimson)
- Zero Frame
- 4 USB Ports

Cons
- Yellowish whites
- Average of 12MS input lag

Asus MG279Q Pros:
- Sharper
- 2 DP inputs
- OSD Navigation is easier
- Nicer stand

Cons
- Lower FreeSync range out of the box 35-95Hz
- Frame
- Giant stand rotates with screen

I second that lol - where did you get that from? TFT central quoted it with one of the lowest input lag times - at least it was for the xb270hu (same panel):

Hey guys!

I also just got this monitor and I'm definitely impressed by the 144Hz. However, since this is my first new monitor since 8 years, I am a little baffled by the IPS glow thing. Some people say it doesn't vary, some say it does. Now my model has no dead pixels and only some backlight bleeding, but the IPS glow is quite irritating. When I sit normally in front of the display, I can easily see it. Mostly on darker colors and mostly when the room isn't well-lit, but still: if you know it's there, you definitely spot it and it "washes" the colors out in a yellowish tone (and yes, it does go away when looking from somewhere else, further away, etc.). Now I was under the impression that you should only see the glow when viewing at angles, right?

Anyway, even with the glow I'm thinking about keeping it, but there's two things that make it a rather tough decision for me.

1) The monitor wasn't completely new. The packaging was re-used, the monitor hat some fingerprints on it and also about 35 hours of running time. This irritates me because I bought it as new and now I'm thinking someone already returned this one and I get a bad feeling because of it (because I'm thinking: why did this person return it?).. would this bother you?

2) Since 500 euros is quite a bit of money and I'm in for the long game (my last monitor held up for 8 years), I'm not sure if this is a reasonable investment. I've heard a lot of bad things about Acer and the quality control, and I'm wondering: is this a good long-term investment? With my last monitor I felt like that was a premium screen. With the Acer I'm just not so sure: the build quality seems alright, but when looking at details you see some issues. Funny example: on my monitor there seems to be a 1.5cm long string between the panel and the top bezel (have to see if I can get it out of there).

Anyway, I would be glad to get some input and tips from you guys. Someone in another forum said "people seem to have OCD with monitors" and I think that's definitely true for me. It's just that it's really expensive and I feel like it has to be the right thing for the next 5-8 years.

Anyone?


Cheers
Leo

After all I've read about IPS monitors, if I ever buy one it will be after I test it in store.

Keep in mind that the photos users are posting are tremendous exagerated by the camera. It captures alot more light than your eye, specialy looking at a digital screen.

So please, stop whinning about the bleed and confusing people who wants to buy it.

The monitor is absolutely GREAT.

It has a bit of low right side bleed, which is transversal to the Asus model.

But besides that...its one of the best out there.

Stop being so picky.

If you dont want some IPS bleed, go for higher end TN model or buy the Eizo 1000USD screen that should give you the best possible results as Q.C should be more precise.

About the colors, the only thing i did on mine was just adjust the color temp to 6800K. For some reason, i always liked colors a little more "cold".

To me, its perfect this way without any other adjustment.
