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

We do not know if they cut any other corners at the moment.

What was the Germany availability date for this display? Was it 25th?

Where did you get this source?

Here's the official updated info from Acer for you

The early stock in Germany had a faulty firmware which introduced the banding issue already discussed. ALL stock which will be sold by official UK resellers, including Overclockers will feature a new updated firmware which fixes this issue. There is no danger if you buy the screen from an official UK channel that you will have the old firmware. So all pre- orders and stock coming soon at OcUK should all be fine

I'm waiting on confirmation on how updates will work for anyone who's bought it in Germany already. There's still a risk if you buy one from available stock out of Germany it could be the old firmware so be careful. For those affected there looks like there could well be a user update option as opposed to needing to send the screen back to Acer. Will confirm as soon as I know

Also waiting to hear about stock elsewhere in the world including the U.S.

I will be testing the new firmware mid next week as well and will update the TFTcentral review with findings.

There's the official statement.

Interesting there isn't any user reviews for the Acer Predator XR341CK on Youtube or Overclock. I guess AMD GPU fans aren't a fan of that monitor as us Nvidia users are of the X34.

Because it isn't released yet.
