I made them blurry intentionally to reflect how they look in real life if I squint from a distance. Those two pics accurately reflect how it looks in real life. The camera kinda messes up if I take them focused. But I've included some more that are less out of focus as well as a link to some more info on the issu, .
Oh I understand, sorry for that
It would be cool if you could include sharpness in your reviews, no other site does it!
I will, thanks for your suggestion(!) - But I have to "collect" some experience to share true "ratings" according to the sharpness.
I never even considered sharpness on my monitors before but when I got my first XB271HU I felt like things seemed off, a little more blurry everywhere compared to my PG278Q, almost like I needed a very low prescription glasses.
This is the experience I've made on the XB271HUA (TN unit)
The one with a better sharpness that still (barely) fails the test feels fine. The other one feels like I'm struggling to see clearly like I need a very light prescription for glasses. The better sharpness one feels like there's slightly more depth to the image too in games. Browsing or using the windows is the same pretty much.
Very interesting. At the Acer XB271HUA, where I also made this strange sharpness experience, first I thought that this simply was my eyes or simply a wrong memory to the PG278QR and the Dell S2716DG. Really nice info! Will include sharpness then already in the next review I'm working on it right now
