Re: Looking for: best 27" 240hz+ counter-strike monitor

Thanks for your input. Im glad you're of a similar use case and feel its buttery smooth. I ended up pulling the Acer Nitro XV272U Xb trigger because: -My Omen 27i motion blur is playable but annoying - I spend too much time on CS to deal with that -Motion handling settings -black boost -1440p fits ...

Re: Looking for: best 27" 240hz+ counter-strike monitor

Figured I would chime in here since it sounds like we're pretty similar. I've played CS since the beta in 1999. I am hyper sensitive to monitor performance. When I switch from a CRT to an LCD screen in ~2006, I realized I made a huge mistake due to the performance of LCDs at that time. I ran that m...

Re: Looking for: best 27" 240hz+ counter-strike monitor

Hi, thank you both for your reply. I play 1.6 (hence stuckin2003 :)) mainly on 27" 640x480 black bars on my OMEN 27i. Like I said, on the extreme setting I can get it close to feeling like my VG248QE but it has motion issues from time to time. I completely agree with you sk1p, something about the V...

Re: Acer XB273U GX (270Hz 1440p IPS) review

Mine also has a September MFR date & I while I don't have dead pixels or the retention issue, I either have some blb or "ips glow". Not enough to make me want to return it as given the monitor is 27" and I'm sitting fairly close while playing fps games, I'm not sure if it's one or the other and it ...

Re: Looking for: best 27" 240hz+ counter-strike monitor

The only thing about the Omen x 27 is that it doesn't appear to have a black equalizer or any new cool motion features. The price tag is ~$625 USD which is quite a lot. I've also seen conflicting VESA info. I think I am asking for too much since I don't want to be on the bleeding edge and am startin...

Re: Looking for: best 27" 240hz+ counter-strike monitor

Just to provide another update to above 1/10 update: it seems the monitor has 'warmed up' to the fastest overdrive setting. While it's not ideal, I wouldn't call it unusable like I initially would have. I am weighing several options for a new monitor, but am finally in a spot where I am pleased w/ t...

It's not just this monitor from Acer, they have several others that have the same issue.
Wouldn't that point to the fact it can be fixed by a firmware update?
