Wow...kinda...no...very jarring experience playing BF4 coming from a 60Hz 30" monitor. The more horizontal real estate could be a game changer... But going from 60Hz to 100Hz is kind crazy...I'm certain that it's better, but it feels weird. After 100ish hours in BF4, I'm going to have to get used to it all over again...

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.

I would not pay $1900 for this monitor either but $1300 which is what I spent was worth it for me because unlike some ppl I plan to get a good 5 years out of it. I'm not the type of person who buys the newest monitor every 6 months or every year for that matter as I can't justify the money spent. It's almost like those ppl who buy the newest iPhone every year. I upgrade my iPhone about every 3-4 years. But to each there own.

Here's a better image than with my first one.



So I bought this mainly to counter low FPS with G-Sync - but I've got to say even though it seems to help smooth things out subjectively in that scenario what REALLY impressed me was running Rocket League maxed out at a reported ~64 FPS - it just seemed so much more fluid than the 60 FPS I'm used to. Similar experience with a quick run around in TF2, well over 100 FPS there obviously, everything maxed and I'm just sitting here with my jaw on the floor.

Only problem so far was with RimWorld, I had to change the global v-sync setting in the Nvidia control panel from "On" (which I don't remember setting it to, maybe a new default?) to application controlled - otherwise I was only getting 15 FPS and super choppiness with G-Sync enabled. With things set that way it now runs awesome and smooth up to 100 FPS.

Very happy right now.

There is a little back-light bleed, especially on the upper right corner but nothing I'm going to freak out about. IPS glow seems better than the 27" Shimian I just retired, maybe due to the curve, hard to tell. The curve is subtle, I barely notice it but I think that's a good thing.

Oh, and I quite like the ambient light. I changed it to white, set it on the second to lowest level and to stay on without moving or pulsing. Quite a nice accent.

Does it have LEDs across the top of the backside of the monitor pointing backwards as well as across the bottom pointing downwards? @42 seconds it looks that way.

Thread Starter 
Just got mine in. Some quick thoughts:

1. My version seems to be a bit better than the CK Free-sync version I tested.
2. Blue banding firmware fix confirmed applied.
3. 100 Hz white background at 100% brightness; there is a slight electronics buzz but I can only hear it with my ear a few inches away from the panel. (I get regular hearing tests and my hearing is good). Non-issue.
4. I'll leave the panel on for a handful of hours at 100% brightness to get it warmed up/settled before making any comments on BLB/IPS glow.
5. While the smoothness/motion blur is OK at 100 Hz, noticeable decrease from the 144 Hz TN Swift.
6. I really like the solid and simple aluminum stand and riser.
7. 100 Hz is the highest you can go. Doing custom timings in both overclock and non-overclock mode does not allow 101 Hz.
