Acer Predator XB241H Gsync - Page 7

Well considering the panels are so different I assume it will be off but I'll give it a shot. What's the rest of your settings? And when you have your taskbar and start menu solid and not transparent, is it black?

Everything that should have been black was black from what I could see.

I did the calibration at 180Hz with 100 Brightness, color temp was "User" which was the same as "Warm", Adaptive Contrast off, the rest were out of the box settings.

I'm going crazy, I can't get it to be black, there's always a brownish or greyish tint.

But if I go on a website with black for example it's nice proper solid black.

Here is the Acer XB241H in comparison to my Eizo FG2421.

Notice that on the Eizo FG2421, the green grids to the top can be seen clearly.

Ok i tried but I can't get a decent pic, it looks like on yours whenever I try when it doesn't in reality. Here's the best result but its not as bad as yours, what I noticed with the green grid is that it's highly dependant on the view angle. I actually had to tilt the screen towards me in order to avoid what you described.

Well, if a TN screen is viewed from an angle, the contrast always changes, meaning that if the screen gets tilted enough, the green grids to the top also become visible on my XB241H.

Could you just take a picture for reference from straight in front of the screen and with brightness at 100? That would be very useful for me as said 'instrument of persuasion'.

If you look at the screen straight on, can you actually see the upper grids?

I've read the last pages and I didn't see nothing about how good this monitor is, can you tell me that? I'm gonna travel to Canada and I need to choose which one I'm gonna get.

It is actually a pretty good monitor, really nothing bad to say about it, but you may have my problem, and there is a lot of backlight bleeding in the lower right area at 180Hz on every XB241H.

Yeah I know, what I meant is if I tilt the screen just a little the grid is the same over it's whole length. If I look straight at it, it actually is a little darker at the top but still visible. That is only for the green one, the red from my ASUS tool doesn't have it at all.

Ihad some trouble again taking a decent pic because my phones camera isn't the best and the ambient light and the white bar at the top of the tool caused some issues but I think you can see the grid at the top os visible.


If i get to I'll use my camera tomorrow.
