I just don't see acer sending Germany a bad batch and I don't believe there's been enough time to "fix" the unshipped ones.

Skeptic? Pessimistic? Sit on tight and see how people will respond to their new toy.

I'm am not a skeptic or am I pessimistic. I think there will many happy Americans with their new toy in hand. But we'll both have to wait and see.

Naw, just a realist. Unless they ship all bad monitors to Texas, this will most likely be a nightmare. We will see. I've already bought an xb270hu and also considering the xb280hu to sit next to it and would still be saving around 100 bucks in the end over buying this.

If I see good numbers at the official release date and no banding, I may return the xb270hu and xb280hu and get one. Not sure yet. 21:9 was fun but wasn't end all gaming experience for me same as 144 hz 1080p surround. 16:9 came with a lot less hassle than these newer resolutions.

You realize we're talking about Acer here right? rolleyes.gif Good QC is just not in their nature/culture.

A pessimist sees a half empty glass
An optimist sees a half full glass
A realist simply sees a half glass. It's neither half full or half empty.

AS A REALIST, YOU CAN NOT FORMULATE FACTUAL INFORMATION BASED ON SPECULATIONS.

Sit on tight and see what the results will be when people open their boxes. My speculation is that many Americans will be happy with their new toy. But we'll have to wait and see.

Neither was gaming monitors until not long ago. We'll see how things go. Since Jason Chen took the mantle of acer ceo in 2014, acer has seen steady growth and are starting to flex their innovative muscles. Im excited to see where the company goes in the next few years.

Huh, looks like they stopped the pre-orders from NewEgg. Trying from a desktop (non-mobile) and I get "Auto-Notify" instead of a pre-order button.

It says: Limit 2 per customer ! HAH! Just like when i bought my Titan X's smile.gif

Anyway I live in Hong Kong so assuming newegg actually gets them on the 13th it will be about a week after that before it shows up at my place via FedEx. Im a gamer and will post gaming impressions and answer gaming questions.

I find it quite funny that something made in China get's shipped to the US, only to be shipped back to China for a customer. wink.gif

Just means they have sold out all of their pre-order stock that's coming in the first shipment.

Which is good news. I wouldn't pre-order. I'll let some other people be the test subject instead. I don't really want to have to drive to the nearest UPS to drop off the defective monitor even though it's free because I am a Amazon Prime Member.

I'm good, I'll take my chances.

That's a cool thing about me. I'm never anxious for any product although I've been waiting for the X34 since April, and others probably since the creation of this thread. Heck, I like GTA but still wouldn't buy it until the retail price is $19.99 and 75% off of that during a sale.

If I knew this monitor would for a fact cost $999.99 when the Asus 300R is released, I wouldn't buy this monitor at all until that time. thumb.gif
