I bought an Acer predator xb271HU and it has worked beautifully for past 24 hours. I had my pc on standby with monitor on standby as well. When I turned pc on, I noticed some orange across the screen. I then noticed that gsync wasn't working as smooth as it was in the past.

Troubleshooting so far: Shut down pc and fired back up. Turned off monitor by swiching off and turning back on Turn gsync off/on in settings. Make sure games are in full screen mode. Tried other games.

There's a constant microstudder that's making me kind of sick, let alone the price i paid for this thing. Gsync seems finicky so not sure if I'm missing something that is a quick fix. Thanks.

One thing to note, G-sync does not work across the entire range. You need some form of sync / limit in place.

Personally I find enabling G-sync as you have done, but also V-Sync in the global settings for Nvidia control panel provides the smoothest experience. Give that a shot.

Thanks. The quality control on these doesn't seem so great when looking at reviews. Hoping it's not a dud.

Update: After trying everything I unplugged the DVI port from GPU and plugged back in. Then gsync appeared to be working just fine again. These things seem quite finicky. I'm thinking of returning but when I look at reviews the quality of these gync monitors seem hit or miss to say the least. At least no dead pixels or light bleed.

Anyone heard of Gsync being so fussy like this?
