I just had to do that with an NZXT case. They were cool about it thou and the shipping time is the same. I'm stoked to see this pop up on Amazon.

Now if I ordered from Amazon with their overnight shipping and return policy I'd consider exchanging it, but I have no interest in messing with the Acer store.


it looks more like a subpixel though mate, exactly like mine. If it was completely dead, it would be completely black, as seen on the picture its just sort of transparent.

Not to mention since you fixed the pixel, it wasnt dead in the first place.

Still its the last thing you notice in everyday use.. unless youre psyched about stuff like that.

I really love the monitor so far, its the best gaming monitor that was ever released- again so far.

Definitely better than Asus PG27, and Asus was the best untill now.

Im playing Dota2 all the time and really enjoying this beast smile.gif

Oh btw- what brightness do you guys use? Im on 12 brightness right now, but its also 1 am over here, so Im in the "night mode" gaming basically.

I ordered mine from Acer. Even though it will take awhile, can't beat dat $80 off promo code. Rather order it now than harass the Amazon product page to order.

Pls update the pixel inversion. Have you guys notice a pixel inversion?
post #848 of 4031
Alright guys. Just got into the Service Menu of our monitor.

Now here is the problem:
Just as TFTCentral I have no ******* idea how I did it or atleast not exactly. As far as I know I pressed on two buttons, which were not side by side (60-70% sure). Also you don't have to turn off the monitor. I can't tell how long to press those two buttons and where in the Menu to press them. I think I was in the eColor Management when I pressed the two buttons. Then I exited it and entered the Menu with 2 clicks on the furthest to the right button and then whole Menu was on the top left corner. The furthest to the right button was definitely not involved in pressing the two buttons.

Pictures:

No option to turn off the LED light or the start animation, but I only looked in the "Factory" Tab of the Service Menu and not into the other sections, so it could actually be there.

I have one issue so far, which is not a big deal but I wonder why it doesnt work.

So with the ASus PG27, I remember that I created a custom resolution of 2560x1280- dont ask the reasons I just needed that resolution. And the gsync work with that custom resolution of 2560x1280.

WIth the Acer, it seems that Gsync doesnt work with that custom resolution.

Which makes me sad a little, since I really want to use this resolution for 1 particular game.

I dunno if its monitor related or driver related.

Could one of you guys create this custom res (2560x1280 @ 144) and see if Gsync works with that resolution for you? you can see it when you look in the monitor menu under info if Gsync is enabled.

Just ordered one off of amazon.de as I couldn't find any retailer in France. Hopefuly it will ship fast.. Still it wasn't as expensive as I thought : 629 € + ~10 for shipping + ~130 Tax total 766. I realy did not think I would get it for less than 800. I am currently praying to not get any trouble with it because I can't speak a word of german xD
