that was speculation from the tft article because of the other monitor, the xg freesync one being delayed till the end of april

i remember when the 970s came out and europe had all the zotac cards for some reason for an entire week before US etailers got them

could go either way i guess, which isnt any closer to an answer than before lol

Found a site saying it comes out on the 23rd. Not sure how accurate it is, but one can only hope!

It won't let me register on their site to see the screenshots, is the bleeding bad?

I just found out on the Acer website than you can get 5 year warranty for 34,99€. Compared to the price of the monitor itself (750€), I will definitely buy it, seems worth it.

It seems like there's a lot of Backlight Bleeding. A LOT
And I don't mean the normal IPS Backlight Bleeding.
Of course, the camera makes this problem a bit more visible.

Not only "a bit more". I've tried to make a picture to show that my unit doesn't really have any backlight bleeding and it turned out so bad, I won't even post it, because it just looks so different from how it actually looks, it would only start an unnecessary panick.

Well, like GamingWiidesire said, maybe the camera shows this problem different.
On their pictures, the bleeding is really bad. But maybe it's just the camera which they used.

wow the bleeding is really less in this picture.... smile.gif
I hope I'll get a Acer XB270HU with the same amount of bleeding ( or less tongue.gif )
Also, is this 5 year warranty for 34,99€ a limited offer ? I mean, if you have to pay only 34,99€ for only one time and you get a 5 year warranty... Thats just awesome
