For how long do you think this monitor will last? Be high end? 2 years? 5 years?
Depends on the aspect ratio of the movie.

1.85:1 will give you black bars. Common movie ratio nowadays is 2.39:1 which should cover the whole screen when playing Blu-Ray rips with MPC HC, VLC or KMPlayer. You might have to play with settings a little to get desired result. Of course this won't help with streaming services such as Netflix. Edit: here's a Chrome plugin for 21:9 support in Youtube/Netflix. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ultrawide-video/lngfncacljheahfpahadgipefkbagpdl

Here's some examples of different aspect ratios: http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?s=8810c9b583d7a186e0c472390643e9cc&p=11121122&postcount=3

Still not reading my comment, never mind

I'm not sure why you're quoting me because I've already stated I have absolutely zero desire to interact with you.

As for your comment, it doesn't apply to me whatsoever because I'll be buying it from a north American retailer where the firmware will be updated, like acer has stated.

Anyway. Like I said, can't wait!

Why can't we all just get a long? Pretty soon we all gonna have the monitor we want and we can talk about our monitors. Only a few days left, then we can show off our monitors and join the Acer Predator X34 Club.

You mean like ACER said it would be fixed in the UK before it gets released, look what happened, it got delayed by 2 weeks so they can do the firmware update, you do not read the comments, if only you did, you might get more information.

Not really a few days left, a few weeks now.

Yeah I read on someone's comment here that they had contacted acer about this problem and they responded with the UK and American versions would ship with the new firmware which was clearly bull crap because the sudden 2 week delay. It's £1000 for a damn monitor this shouldn't even be happening

People been saying it's the same monitor anyhow. Except perhaps it has a higher out of box refresh rate. And how is it that Acer is messing with people's money. Give me an example.
