    from completed build Subaquatic Desk Build

    My monitor is almost 6 months old and have not had a single issue with it in that time. I've transported it in car over 100's of KMs, and also mounted it on 2 differenmt stands besides the stock one that is included. And there is still 0 problems or surface damage.

    This monitor has so many features that appeal to a gamer: 144/165Hz, 1440p, G-sync and IPS for the image quality junkies out there. Once calibrated, it has great color accuracy and image quality. The backlight bleeding I've heard about is non-existent on the unit I received. The stand could be a bit more sturdy, but if you have a solid desk that won't be a problem. An overall outstanding monitor.

    from completed build "Anonymous" - 1440p 144Hz Build

    Got a refurbished model for $799.99 about 5 months after it was originally released, and it just kicks ***. This thing has nothing wrong with it, hardly notice the back-light bleed (me personally). Easy to set up and compatible with all the programs I've used with it. The stand does shake a bit if your table is not too sturdy due to the heavy weight of the 27" love machine. The sleek look and petite outside bezel really make this thing look unreal, would recommend if you got the cashhhhhhhhhh

    By far the most impulsive purchase of this build. Was prepared to keep using my Korean 1440p monitor that I got forever ago it seems like. Then this thing went on sale and I pulled the trigger. Honestly, I'm happy I did. IPS panel is noticeably richer than my Korean monitor, G-sync is pretty awesome, and the thin bezel makes it look sleek, especially on the mount I purchased. I will say that there is one dead pixel dead center that is annoying but hardly noticeable after a while.

    Holy smokes, 144hz is buttery smooth (and I could even overlock it to 165hz)

    Sleek and nice, with great functionality. Acer sometimes has QC issues, and I had to send mine out for repairs. However, once you get the monitor set up, the status LED on auto-off, and overclocked to 165 hz (this, as well as G-sync, are actually done in Windows),it is a great monitor.

    Great monitor. I was blown away at how much workspace I have at 1440p. I don't even need chrome in fullscreen anymore. And the 120-165Hz modes are just fantastic. Minimal IPS glow in the bottom right but it's barely noticeable at 40 brightness.

    This thing is amazing. I got super lucky and ended up with a brand new one for free (bought a used one on eBay, was super defective/not as described so the seller just refunded me and let me keep it, turned out to still be under warranty so I RMA'd and received an unopened one back). 1440p on a 27" monitor is a really nice pixel density -- I moved my 1080p 27" to my office and now the scaling makes it look cartoonish, in comparison. I can't comment on the stand, as I immediately moved it to a gas-spring mount. The bezel-less frame looks amazing. I paired it with a portrait-oriented Dell P2219H (1080p 21.5" IPS) monitor which is also bezel-less -- having mere millimeters between pixels is fantastic. G-sync works great and overall the gaming experience is drastically more enjoyable, coming from a 1080p 60Hz monitor. If you're going to spend so much on your system components, it seems like a waste not to get a nice monitor.

    TN version has worse colors, but at price point 250 pounds below IPS with all its problems it is a great gaming monitor.

    from completed build When a novice builds a PC

    I was on the fence between the IPS and the TN version of the XB27 - ended up spending that bit extra and getting the IPS. I definitely do not regret that choice - awesome colours, great clarity and no real IPS bleed what so ever.

    I have not tweaked any of the settings and I am already blown away, so can only imagine what a few settings changes would do for the look.
