Can you do a test like this maybe? http://onlinetonegenerator.com/hearingtest.html

I can hear just about to 19K, clear at 18K though

Totally agree man. I just cannot wrap my head around how they think GSYNC is worth tacking on another $400... Or $500 if you bought the xr341ck from newegg. Other than GSYNC I'm not sure how the x34 is worth $500 more than the xr341ck.

I really want this monitor, but I don't think I can bend over for Acer on this one. The 4 people I knew who were getting this, are no longer getting it, so well done Acer. Well done. You could have stuck us with a lousy $1599 and been able to justify it (gsync = $200 usd or $300 cad).

With my tax(13%), this will cost me $1921 before shipping... lachen.gif

Sorry, bit of a rant, just don't take kindly to being told to bend over.

Beast mode activated.



First impression was that this is alot shorter than my Dell 3008WFP!
PPI is higher though and you can tell...

No whine that I can hear.

No banding.

Can't test BLB as my room is too brightly lit in the day...I'll follow that up tonight.

Going to let the monitor stay on until tonight then do some proper calibration with the i1Display Pro...I'll post the icc profile I generate.

On to gaming...

well @ 1599 CAD you are still paying less than us :3
1599 CAD comes out about 1230 USD. Everyone is the US is paying 1299+shipping or possible tax.

If you get taxed its well over 1500 usd monitor which comes out to 1936 CAD smile.gif

Just one quick photo for now, seems perfect so far. 100Hz no issues. Will calibrate with TFT specs soon and check for other issues. Just having fun for a bit first...

The problem I have with the price is that the XR341CK is available for $1299 CAD ($1006 USD - while being $1099 on the US site) from Acer, or less elsewhere. From what I understand, these are the exact same monitor but one has the inclusion of GSYNC, which overclocked allows the monitor to go to a higher refresh rate.

I guess we just get the freesync one for $93 USD less than Americans, and pay an extra $16 USD on the gsync one which makes the gap seem a little bigger than it should be. Seems like $1599 would have just fallen in line, but I suppose at this price that may just be peanuts. I mean, this thing is really beautiful.

Way to go Harper. Do you see what you've done?

I think it looks great, and most importantly it's inexpensive / functional. Can't wait to grab one of these monitors, glad Acer is putting out a quality product without all the qc nonsense of their 27".
