Wow. 1440p where have you been all my life? 1080p has had its run, but with smart phones and laptops really pushing the pixels, 1080p was starting to look dated. 1440p on the other hand really is the perfect density of pixels for a 27in desktop monitor. I can't notice pixels at all, which makes the windows desktop experience feel more premium and enjoyable. Gaming is also awesome at this definition, some games REALLY benefit from the higher resolution, BF4 to name one. The color contrast is also welcome, and I like that adjusting my head a bit wont distort the color like on my old TN panel. G-sync is also an amazing technology. I am running this with my 980ti, but even this card on certain games (like GTA5) can run into a few low moments depending on the environment at 1440p. G-sync really makes it so I dont even notice the FPS dipped, which makes for an immersive fluid experience. I also feel as though G-sync will get me an extra year or two out of my card because of how seamless the experience feels at lower FPS.
Come nighttime my first day with the monitor, I decided to test for the infamous backlight bleed. Low and behold, I had a bit in the top left, middle, and bottom middle corners of the bezel. The monitor out of the box has the brightness set way too high (at like 60 I believe), so following the owners club advice I decreased brightness to 27. This helped A LOT to diminish the backlight bleed, but I could still notice it a bit on pure black screens which really irked me. Another thing about this monitor, is that it does have a lot of IPS glow; I sit probably a bit too close to it honestly. The optimum viewing distance would be likely 2-3 feet, but I am probably closer to 1.5 feet, where I notice IPS glow on the bottom right corner. I found that angling the monitor a bit up helped diminish this effect.
So Did I return it?
No! Now here is the thing, the backlight bleed is only noticeable in a pitch black room, with a pitch black image displayed on the screen. Playing games, or doing anything in a pitch black room with a monitor like this is terrible for yours eyes, but I still wanted a better solution that leaving the light in my living room.
Enter accent lighting! I bought three RGB led strips that I mounted to the back of the monitor to add accent lighting to the image. Aside from limiting eye strain, having accent lighting also helps increase the contrast of the colors on the screen, and, you guessed it, eliminated any perceivable IPS glow or backlight bleed in a pitch black room. Now, I can have an enjoyable experience with my monitor, in the dark due to my accent lighting. And it looks awesome too! Also, it could be my imagination, but I feel as though the backlight bleed has gotten better over time? Apparently some people on the forums noticed this as well. Either ways, for the price of the monitor, I wish I didn't have this emotional roller coaster and it just worked flawlessly out of the box, which is why it gets 4 stars. Outstanding product with some quirks.
I purchased this monitor back in November and absolutely loved it. It was beautifully crisp and smooth. Unfortunately, after about 2 months the monitor started to suffer from some terrible ghosting and motion blur. This was not a minor issue, as you can see from the photo I have attached. After going through a couple of weeks of troubleshooting I came to the conclusion that the monitor was the cause of the issues. I changed out every variable in the system (included video cards, display port cables and every possible software configuration/driver) that could be at fault and the issue did not exist on my other monitor.
I contacted Acer and they told me that I would have to send my monitor in for repair (7-10 business days to repair it). Initially, the support tech told me that I would have to pay for shipping to send the monitor in to have it repaired. Acer reluctantly agreed to pay for the shipping both ways and I sent the monitor off for repair. According to the case # Acer gave me my monitor was "under repair" for the better part of 5 days. I received it back after 15 days and open the box to find that Acer hadn't repaired my monitor. Instead, they "tested the monitor for 18 hours and found no issue." This was the first thing that Acer did that upset me. I send them a monitor to have it repaired and they fail to find the issue. That's fine, but instead of contacting me and allowing me to assist them in replicating the problem they just close the ticket box it up and send it back to me without doing anything. I set the monitor back up and still suffer the same issue. It was immediately noticeable.
I contact Acer again and tell them what has happened and they kindly tell me to send the monitor back in for repair. I inform them that I am afraid of sending my monitor back in and having it returned to me in the same manor as before. They tell me that the only thing they can do is open another repair ticket. At this point they tell me I have to contact level 2 support for assistance. The next day I contact level 2 and tell them the same stuff I told the last person and they give me the same reply. I tried to get them to help me diagnose the problem (since there's nothing wrong with the monitor according to them), and they told me to try a different cable, check my graphics card and update my drivers. Acer's tech support is more of just a "let me fill out a repair ticket" support.
At this point, I think I am being completely reasonable. How many times do they expect me to ship the monitor and let them have it for 2 weeks before getting it back without them even attempting to repair it? I told them that I was not interested in sending it back for repair and requested that I receive a replacement, refurbished monitor. According to Acer, the monitor that I have is functioning perfectly so I'm just exchanging one working monitor for another working monitor. Maybe I'm asking for too much of Acer but I just want a monitor that works properly, nothing else. The kind lady from Acer replied with, "I can't do that but I can open a repair ticket." I've been without a properly functioning monitor for around 5 weeks at this point. I told her that I was not interested and that I would be reaching out to Amazon to receive a refund.
Luckily for me, Amazon heard my side and refunded my money, despite being beyond the 60 day return period. I will NEVER purchase another Acer product. I have never encountered customer service that was less helpful or accommodating. Dealing with them was like pulling teeth. I'll gladly take my refund and purchase the ROG Swift. Kudos to Amazon for have exceptional customer service and taking care of customers even when they don't have to. I will gladly continue to buy from Amazon for this reason.
