AOC AG271QG Thread - 1440p 144Hz GSync IPS - Page 4

post #31 of 259
Thread Starter 
they're saying its has a small chance to come up every time a game is launched or you alt-tab in full screen mode, while Gsync is on


alt-tabbing again or turning monitor off & on again always fixes it

its a minor annoyance, but it is an annoyance (which will come up more frequently if you play fullscreen and like to alt-tab)

The Asus has the same issue, so it seems like its an issue with the panel or G-Sync module itself. AOC will likely have it unless they get the Firmware fix from NVIDIA (Which Acer said exists and they are in the process of getting) and apply it to their monitors before they are first shipped out.

Do you know if they've said they'll provide a way for current owners to apply the fix? I assume it's some sort of firmware update, but don't know how that would be done on a monitor.

I thought it was only XB271HU & PG279Q ..


does XB270HU or PG278Q have this issue ?

Does 'small chance' realistically mean the issue is still quite rare in ordinary gaming use? Once a week? Day? Every 30 minutes? Or will I be driven nuts having to experience it constantly (even if the 'fix' is quick and just involves an alttab / restart etc)

Apparently you need to return the monitor to them for the firmware update to be applied. (Which, obviously, everyone is pretty annoyed/frustrated at...)


I just bought a sexy new PC with a gx1080... which currently uses 1080p / 60Hz monitors... I've essentially ruled out getting a 4k monitor on advice from reading this board that the difference between 1440p->4k is relatively unimpressive to begin with (compared to 1080->1440), then factoring in with going from 144Hz -> 60 Hz, and also factoring in the a definite hit to my FPS, even with a gtx1080. Aka not worth the tradeoffs with 2016 technology at least.

So, i'm in the market for a 27" GSync 1440p monitor and my current options are either just buy the Acer XB321HK (over the Asus '279 because the Acer appears to have less panel issues, even though the 279 is superior in all other ways like aesthetic design / stand / OSC etc...) OR wait for this AOC under the assumption / hope its using a better/newer/different AOC panel (despite having the same specs as the asus/acer) and/or doesnt suffer from the current gsync module issue the acer/asus are both experiencing..

What would you guys do?
What is the likelyhood the AOC uses a different / better / newer panel than either the Acer/Asus models of the same spec?

as for waiting for AOC AG271QG - I would like to read reviews of it before I decide, but I think it might take some time before those are out (from proper sites) and Im not sure I want to wait that long

I also dont think it will have a better panel than XB271HU

have no idea if it will get the split middle line issue .. I still dont even know if XB270HU IPS gets it or not

Regarding the line issue, it won't drive you nuts. It happens maybe once in 100 alt-tabs from a game, in my case (massive alt-tabbing) I see it two times (three tops) a day. If you're already alt-tabbing enough to see it more than once a day then a couple more alt-tabs to fix it is not really that annoying.

It's HIGHLY unlikely that the AOC will feature a different panel, it will probably feature just a small variation of the current ones.

Depending on how long it takes for them to release the product, they may include the G-Sync firmware fix form the factory, but even that is not guaranteed.

On one hand, if you can "afford" to wait for the AOC I'd do it, you have nothing to lose (patience maybe biggrin.gif). On the other one, you'll probably wait several months and AOC will just dump the same "low QC" panel on you and you would have wasted a lot of time for nothing.

If you can get an Acer now in a store that accepts refunds, you can do that and then wait a bit for the AOC. If the AOC is confirmed to fix the issues, then refund the Acer and you're golden.
