  • Terrible

    For whoever look at purchasing this monitor, you should seriously consider the XB271HU (Not this HUA), considered the prices and specification of this monitor, using a cheap TN panel is unreasonable. I purchased one of XB271HU(IPS) from Playtech when they were doing specials, you know what, they have put a sticker saying "IPS panel" on top of the original manufacture printing which says "TN", when I went back home, the colour looks absolutely terrible, everyone whoever used a higher grade monitor will notice it is bad. I removed the sticker and found it said TN. Returend the product back to Playtech, they kept the TN version monitor and said will order another IPS one for me, still waiting for their replacement unit to arrive before I post any feedback of their store. I actually had a chance to walk in to another computer shop in Albany and the staff helped me to setup both monitors aside, the IPS version is 10 times better than TN, colour IS important. It changes your experience a lot.

    Very pleased with my screen. Had first HP Omen but had to return due to various reasons.
    This screen does what it should and does it well, never reached the stray.
    Should get higher points with cleaner and not so plastic design, the foot is also hugely bulky. But it's as said the design that pulls down, the performance there is nothing wrong with.

    1 dead pixel up in the left hand corner of my ex and several pixels that shine on and off and turn green so you have to tap the screen a bit to get rid of them. Acers pixel warranty says it must be at least 15 pixels as strange before you can replace its screen. (4 pixels per million pixels)

    Clouding is available, but it is quite even across the screen, see if you have a total black screen that is generally brighter over the entire screen if compared to my old Benq M2700HD. Then the light is very strong on the screen, one can lower the brightness and contrast a lot, otherwise the eyes can be broken by the brightness of the light.

    Would not buy a Predator again and I do not think there will be an Acer ever again for my part.

    The polar also bought a similar screen at the same time as me and he has exactly the same problem with his screen, a couple of dead pixels in the corners and several that turn green on and off.

    Be a bit uncertain about viewing angle and color rendering with the screen delivered what I expected for the price. Went from an ips panel and the colors are a little more gray on the tn panel. It also does its job and runs 165hz with a good flow. The sharpness is not something I want to complain about, but some seem to think that the competitors have more of that part. Had a green pixel on delivery in one corner but it disappeared after putting a slight pressure on the area. Games like csgo and farcry look really good. I will also take care to warn of all types of panels when ghosting is extreme according to your own experience.

    + good colors
    1440p is a must
    G-Sync

    - the top of the screen falls a bit from a good viewing angle
    Expensive
    A little plastic construction

    I've spent a long time watching a screen with: 27 "1440p, 144hz and G-Sync.

    The choice then took place between IPS panel and TN panel. You who know that they are screening with IPS is a lot more expensive from Asus / Acer.

    But finds class 1 on CDON for 4899: - Made the selection easy. TN panel got it.

    But I just want to say that there is still very good picture and viewing angles, I absolutely do not need more than this. I was also a little scared when many talked about backlight bleed, etc. on the IPS panels, and I did not feel like chasing it.

    Nä recommends this screen highly! Really amazing picture.
    And I was skeptical about how much G-sync would actually do, but it's incredibly nice. I think it makes me dare to push my GTX 970 to slightly higher graphics and still get a good experience around 50-70fps.

    Then a last note! overclocking to 165hz, but keep in mind that you can not run G-sync and overclocking at the same time.

    ps: I have mine on the wall, but the footrest is sickly beautiful with the dark red metal!

    Buy only! :)

    It is currently one of the more affordable 144 Hz (165 Hz) screens with G-sync, especially when you get a resolution of 1440p. I bought it a couple of weeks ago and have been testing games like BF1, GTA V, Assassin's Creed Origins, Overwatch and Rocket League. Combined with a GTX 1070 Ti, you can play with the higher settings and take advantage of the high refresh rate and G-sync.

    Now it will be difficult to use other types of screens.

    Have had the screen for just over a month and it's really better than my old 60hz screen.
    That it is TN is a particular disadvantage, but I thought it was worth when the corresponding IPS cost 1500 more. It is hardly noticeable in normal mode but tested in vertical mode, and then it was barely used.

    Like everyone else, it seems that it's a good screen, everything is flowing thanks to G sync.
    Everything looks good at 1440p but not so great at 1080p as good graphics cards are required.

    This screen is the best screen I've had. Have previously used an Aoc 1080p 144hz and after that I used a previous version of this screen. Noticed a big difference when I switched to this one. Although there was no mistake in the past, the difference in quality felt tremendous.

    + 144Hz is wonderful. The screen can be overclocked to 165Hz but I have not tried it.
    + 1440p is wonderful. Large area to everything and details becomes much better.
    + I think the colors are clear and have no problem with viewing angles.
    + Good settings for setting profiles, etc. Have been able to set colors and other things as I want it when I play or just sitting and surfing at night and can change quickly between them.

    - Big Foot. The screen is very stable, but it is because of the big foot. If you have a large desktop, it's no problem but it's of the smaller size, the screen may need to be pushed with mouse / keyboard.

    I physically checked my ROG swift pg278q and got a new one on insurance minus deductible of 1500kr. So it had to be this since it was a little cheaper.

    It's quite ok in comparison. Refresh rate, colors and things are good at gaming. You can turn off gaming mode, maybe you save the screen for longer life?

    The only thing I want to complain about is the menu system that is completely useless compared to Asus, only comfort is that there are 3 different profiles that you can put on. Then I think it's very light with everything at minimum, you get completely dazzled in the evenings, so I can screw down via the Nvidia control panel.

    Quite ok, but I like swift better.

    An excessively high proportion of IPS monitors has a problem that they emit too much light, which makes the screens unusable, so I bought this one that is TN, where the problem is not available plus $ 2500 cheaper. Taking the step to 1440p is enormous and after the rest at the beginning you get uncomfortably fast. The g-sync screen makes it more forgiving to play on lower frames, so the combinations this screen gives are unbeatable in this way.

    + G sync
    + nice as a fan
    + USB 3.0 that charges mobiles quickly
    + 165hz

    Fantastic display! recommended
    EDIT: On the basis that it is a TN panel with the associated disadvantages in color and viewing angle

    1440p, 27 ", 1ms, 165 Hz, G-Sync, thin bezel and cool design.

    What's not to love with this screen? Unfortunately, pretty much.
    The screen radiated so much light that I was dazzled at everything over 20 of 100 in brightness. Even at this low level was particularly white backgrounds so indispensable that I probably had low vision after only a few months of use. I've never been through something like that, and then I have still been sitting in front of a dozen different screens in recent years.

    The colors were really bad. No matter how much I adjusted the color settings so everything was either översatuerat or matte, almost greyscale. It was not related to the low brightness I used, but the colors were just as sticky at higher light levels, all the way up to 100th
    The screen has a TN panel is no excuse. My current screen from 2010 which is also a TN has considerably brighter colors.

    In light backgrounds appeared the purple vertical stripes over the entire screen with a few millimeters apart. Although these were thin and barely visible as it was grossly annoying to watch.

    1440p! And 27 ", damn what I regret that I did not buy this earlier!

    TN panel, I had read before that the colors could be a little thin. It was true, but that's ok. I am currently not willing to put 2500 - to an IPS panel. Bought this on gift ideas and on the Amazon Marketplace for 5500: - so little foolish that I did not hit on Black Friday instead when it seems to have been 500 - cheaper then.

    Have not seen any dead pixels. Fipplade little with color, contrast and brightness and thought it was slightly better, mainly, I wanted more color.

    The footrest and the holder is hearty. The footrest skurvas easily fixed with a screw in the holder (the pole). The holder then clicked onto the screen. Very smooth and feels very sturdy.

    144Hz works well. I run Overwatch and the game seems to be locked to 60Hz in the menus, so at first I thought that higher Hz and G-Sync did not work. Once the game was running so I lie between 50 and 75Hz with slightly overclocked ASUS GTX 960. Settings EPIC / ULTRA. In 1440p! Used the ASUS Tweak II software to overclock. Used the program preset gaming mode. Got about 10 FPS more.

    It is the first time I have a G-Sync screen. One must check the Nvidia Control Panel to G-Sync is enabled. Then I shut the v-sync in Overwatch. I put the resolution and Hz in Overwatch settings. Be careful not to choose the Custom max FPS, when I had it set to 300 (maximum) then the game got serious twitching and toughness for FPS went over 144 (the screen is the default max 144Hz). I then chose to put maximum FPS for the display supports, there is a separate setting for it. Would obviously had it chosen from the beginning, the most logical.

    I am very pleased!

    2560 * 1440 is so worth it!
    Will never be able to replace me down to 1080p (with the exception of the secondary display works as 1080p).
    Only Windows is 144hz so worth it!
    Stylish and perform cruel.
    No dead pixels.
    Grim picture out of the box and filthy narrow edges.

    Purchased on Black Friday for 4999kr of Inet. Would not pay more.

    Really wanted an IPS rather than TN, but the price of the IPS does not feel quite justified.
    However, this monitor's TN panel perform above expected. Despite the fact that I sit very close to the screen, I experience no "blurred / gray" experience "oblique angles" Unlike cheaper versions, which I enjoyed.

    If I had a bigger budget, I would bet on the Asus ROG IPS.
    Otherwise, buy this! Recommended!
