If i'm not mistaken, the only way to fix it (fastest way, anyway) was to power the monitor off and then on again.

I just pulled the trigger on a refurbished XB271HU, do you think they would have updated the firmware when they refurbished it? It won't be here for a few days so I guess I won't know for sure until it gets here.

No clue how they operate.

Hi! Sorry for the delay. I found it on Acer's Store in Canada and I wanted to get it first before replying. Everything is perfect! No dead pixels, vertical line issue or BLB noticeable (my eyes are not trained to look for these, but I didn't see anything that's bothering me, so I won't look for it, haha). Thanks for the help!

Newegg is now taking pre-orders on the Acer XB271HU so looks like maybe they are going to start shipping them again soon.
