Also they are saying installing the new firmware is really easy.

If i have one of these older firmware screens in an hour, hoping there is a way i can do it myself instead of returning it...

Can anyone tell me how it is to watch movies in 21:9 compared to 16:9? Is it true you no longer have black bars?



For how long do you think this monitor will last? Be high end? 2 years? 5 years?

Cruise:as far as I know, Acer hasn't released the firmware to the publicpublic, you might need to ask them directly. You may also ask or tweet to tftcentral, as they seem to have done the update themselvesthemselves.

I'm counting on this monitor lasting me at least 6 years, which is the usual time I take to upgrade screens;by that time we should have reasonably priced oleds with some extra tech that hasn't been invented yet.

Is there any website that has the x34 in stock where you can order it right now? If not, where is the soonest you can get it since I just noticed Overclockers.co.uk changed their ETA from 25th of September to the 9th of October. It doesn't matter which country since I'm in the middle east and will be paying an arm and a leg for shipping anyways. I've placed a preorder on Overclockers and the charge for shipping is 140 GBP...


P.S. If I do keep my OC order and receive a flawed screen (dead pixels, unable to reach 100Hz, bleed, etc.), do they pay for the shipping back of the item + shipping of the replacement? Or am I screwed over for a double 140 GBP of shipping charges?

Is there any reason I shouldn't order this from Overclockers UK to the USA? It comes out to like 985 US dollars with shipping, which I feel like is going to be cheaper than the US price when it comes out here.

Have some more unboxing pics but wanted to get this setup asap (plastic still around...)

First off :

- 100Hz no problem, working like a charm.
- Got a little coil whine with a white background but its doable ( i can live with it )
- Looks like the blue is bad.. right? ( hoping for a do it yourself update fix, Anyone who can help me out with this? )
- Bleed is in my book aswell, when looking at it its rlly not bad.

Any more questions or test let me know.

Blue is definitely bad. I'd contact both Acer And tftcentral and request the patch.

CalsingVega never answered if he had the brightness on 100%. So, if you don't mind. Do you have your brightness setting on max in that second SS?
