[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 282

post #2811 of 6126
This tread is dying; nothing left to talk about while us US citizens wait for mid October. Chairs are difficult to shop for; it isn't like gamers are buying high end chairs left and right so you get reviews from actual gamers. But once I have my gaming set up complete I'd like to consider buying a nice chair, perhaps the Steelcase Leap for under 1K; it seems to be very popular.

Ya I've never cared much for those low/specialty cockpit type chair setups. Too rigid and inflexible. I like to move around and get up a lot.

Correct. Not a lot of stores carry high end chairs outside the big cities. A lot of the time you just have to go off online reviews.

Blue banding is not at all a sample of cutting corners, but a sign of rushing to market to be first. A bug slipped through a bug that should've been caught.

I strongly believe they can't cut corners when building a monitor so far above the panel spec.

Yeah thankfully acer already confirmed it was a firmware issue and won't be present on the monitors that ship for the release date next month. Super excited to get mine.


Just curious, so how many people in here are picking up this monitor as soon as it releases?

I won't. I don't think G-Sync module and 100Hz are worth double the price of a 60Hz.
But I am happy to see technology advances.

I have it preordered since it was available biggrin.gif but Sweden seems to hang on to 28 October, even though UK talks about early October...

It has been (kind of) confirmed the banding thing was a firmware issue: https://twitter.com/TFTCentral tweets from 18.sept.
Does anyone know if Monitor firmware updates can be applied at home if you allready have it or get a Monitor from the old batch?


EDIT: oh wait i'm confused now! We are still all talking about the G-Sync Version, right?
I think name of this thread is very misleading now!

The TFT Central test for the free sync Version is named "Acer Predator XR341CK"
The TFT Central test for the G-Sync Version is named "Acer Predator X34"

I think thats correct...

Of course it is... you cut corners when you're in a rush and you miss things... obviously that's exactly what happened here... it wasn't deliberate or something they would have ever intended to happen, but in their haste it was missed. That's what happens when you cut corners and urgently try to complete a project. They've learnt their lesson though hopefully, and have actually been tremendously lucky this was caught when it was. If all monitors had been shipped out to re-sellers worldwide, this would have been far more awkward, costly and long-running issue. That would have buried them! At least if they can fix all subsequent batches now, this problem will soon be nothing but a distant memory, and everyone who buys the monitor will be delighted... or moaning about excessive BLB, glow and not being able to reach 100Hz lol! wink.gif
