considering it came out 5 years ago, it's amazing how well the xb270hu holds up (or how slowly monitor tech evolves, lol). i got a good one, with very little backlight bleed, and just one stuck pixel i can notice. using it at 120 hz ulmb for shooters.
i also have a benq xl2740 (1080p tn 240 hz) off ebay, animation is indeed smoother, so just in terms of performance i prefer the benq, but having them side by side, the difference in resolution, contrast and color is so obvious. i'll sell the benq as soon as there's a 1440p/240hz ips available, or maybe the 360 hz alienware, but keep my acer a few years longer, it's well rounded.

|doom26464||Im still rocking it for my main monitor for gaming. I will probably wait another 2 years at least allowing gpus and monitor tech to age a bit more before upgrading again.|

|kamimaru||definitely. I got a couple of XB271 a couple of years ago that I ended up selling back (triple screen setup with those is not woth it imo), kept my good old XB270HU as a main gaming monitor. If you can get a cheap one go for it if it's been treated well it's still a marvelous monitor. The bezels don't age well (very easily scratched) and they are thick on that model but I am very pleased with it and will be untill it dies. 4K is not an option yet as I prefere having a high fps count so I gess if I were to plan for a replacement for my XB270HU, it'd still be at least in 2-3 years.|

Worth it in 2020
Hi. Is this monitor still worth it in 2020? ive found one for around 400$ whish is used (Electronic in Denmark are pretty expensive), if i would go for the XB271UH i would ending up paying around 800$.
And what should i look for if i decide to buy this model (used) other than dead pixels.

|JackCY||Prying it open as per S2 in the manual is the hardest part physically. Connecting new panel is easy but your linked panel is glossy with no antiglare on it. And how are you going to calibrate the new panel? I couldn't find that in the manual not in detail.|

Yeah it's almost definitely not cost-effective but... Part of me kind of just wants to try doing it, just for the hell of it. I was just wondering if anyone had more knowledge on removing/replacing the panel than I've been able to find online (none so far :/).
Update us with progress and pics if you decide to tackle it!

|JackCY||Costs the same as a whole new monitor nowadays.|

Hello there, this is an old thread
I have this monitor but the panel is a bit beaten up, scratches and even visible dirt inside the panel.
If I bought a replacement panel from somewhere like this: https://www.enlcd.com/p/m270dan02-3-lcd-panel/, would I be able to easily replace the panel? Or is this just not going to work?

|Mullvad||My monitor seems to be locked to 60, 120, 140 and 160hz instead of 144,165hz etc. Anyone else that have had this problem?|
