    Acer xb271hu - pixel brightness "shimmer" - defect or normal?

    Update on the pixel inversion test, using updated camera settings: Cold start of monitor (not pc) with G-SYNC off, 144hz (easy to see the bands): https://i.imgur.com/PZGaJwc.jpg Looks like it takes ~20 minutes for the inversion test to look normal: https://i.imgur.com/TX2V2hb.jpg edit: added...

    Acer xb271hu - pixel brightness "shimmer" - defect or normal?

    When I turn on the monitor after it has been off for a while (1hr+) it has alternating levels of bright/dim in vertical bands. They disappear after the monitor has been on for some minutes (~5-10). The effect is more apparent at lower framerates (such as HotS being capped at 60 fps on title...

    HP ZR24w

    My monitor definitely does not have that pronounced banding/patchy quality; I'd RMA it personally. The off-angle glare is not going to go away, and you will notice it especially on black backgrounds. You really need to view the display from a horizontal level from ~3ft distance to not see any...

    HP ZR24w

    The ZR24w is supposed to be a replacement for the LP2475w, which is on the "Zero Bright Dots Guarantee" - not much on the HP site is updated for the ZR24w yet. The product page doesn't even have the correct stats last time I check. Being that the ZR24w is a replacement for a monitor on the...

    HP ZR24w

    They both exhibit the glow at 2ft, but I do not consider this a defect. IPS panels tend to have some level of off-angle glare, just like TN panels fade to gray/black at off-angles. This has been my experience, fwiw. Maybe someone with a glossy covered IPS instead of a matte could comment...

    HP ZR24w

    It still has a bit of off-angle glare (corner glow if you sit too close), but I would say it is drastically less than the Dell u2410. At 2ft length the corners on my ZR24w glow ever so slightly, at 3ft it is not visible. Update on my panel: I was expecting to get someone on the phone in the...

    HP ZR24w

    I have been told I am overly sensitive by family members and friends who have seen the screens (both the Dell and HP), but they eventually do spot it - 3/4 saw it on the Dell 2/4 see it on the HP. It is most noticeable when viewing grainy gray patterns, such as those in this test...

    HP ZR24w

    I got my order in this afternoon (well, 3/31) - figured I'd share my experience thus far with my monitor. I have one fully dead pixel near center (dark on r/g/b/w) I have one interesting sub-pixel defect also near center that is "dark" on b/g/w and invisible on r/bl. I guess this is a combo...
