Ordered! I also just got my PG279Q in today. Going to compare them over the weekend and keep whatever one doesn't have any issues (fingers crossed one of them is good...)

I would much prefer the Asus for its base and control panel buttons, but if this Acer turns out to be better quality, ill have to pull the trigger on it. Cant wait to see some pics and reviews...ASAP!!! biggrin.gif

Me on the other hand love whole new XB design and after 3 horrible PGs I am more than willing to try my luck with XB.

No info about them in my country yet so I guess Acer started with small batch.

I have an Acer XB271 enroute, and I have a PG279Q that I just received yesterday sitting on my desk. Unfortunately, the PG279Q has some funky hole in the screen causing some light to come through. The backlight bleeding on my PG is solid, so I'll have a good unit for comparison.

If the Acer checks out, I'll keep it. I'm not a fan of the pictures of the stand, but if the panel is good, it'll be a keeper. The Asus will go back for a refund. If the Acer is bad, they both go back, except I'll request a replacement be sent from Newegg for the Asus. I just like the stand and bezel of that one much more (although I haven't seen the Acer in person, so my opinion may change).

Monday / Tuesday. I have Amazon Prime, so Tuesday by the latest. Sometimes it arrives earlier.

Mine will be here Sunday.

Went through five XB270HU's before giving up.

Here goes nothing, I guess.

Very curious on this monitor! Missed the Amazon window again, but I have a PG279Q due tomorrow, and if it's good I'll just keep it. If it's bad, I'll try for the XB271HU as well, and just keep going until one of the two companies sends a passable unit.
