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

So my takeaway from your statement is that while you feel the monitor delivers value you still feel there is something more responsive from TN panels? I came from a 144hz TN panel, this panel is sooo much smoother. Especially when I can drive the frames way high like in CSGO. I do however notice th...

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 d...

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

Seems to expensive with mainstream 400nits, for non-strobed is a decent spec, but for strobing is not enought. Incoming Eve [email protected] will have 600/650nits with LG IPS panel, support for 60Hz single strobe maybe even with BlurBusters approved sticker :) , and integer scaling ! In teory Acer will have...

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