[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 397

Also if you guys are running 3d mark for benching, you HAVE to set you monitor screen resolution to 1080p or you will lose around 500 points. 3440x1440p 3dmark extreme is 15900 with native resoultion, 3340x1440 set to 1920x1080 put me back up at 16500 again. My LG3440x1440 didn't do this.

Also gsync needs to be off .

Thank god or whatever I'm not anxious to buy this monitor. Hopefully they'll increase the odds by January that buyers would have better luck. I'd like to see what the price war would be like when the competitor to the X34 is released by mid January.

Yes they do. If the monitor does not work at 100 Hz you can get it replaced. Acer confirmed this directly do OcUK I believe, but I can't find the exact post in the thread over there right now.

Welp...turns out Acer support doesn't have an email address.... clever!

So I basically just made a long post documenting and detailing the issues on the Predator Forums here: http://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Discussions/MULTIPLE-Problems-with-New-X34/m-p/390434#U390434

We'll see if that get's anywhere! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It won't.

All that, and only 2 980's.....Epic fail.

Yea but Linus always gives praises. He won't comment about any problems unless it makes the screen totally fail.

I agree. Personally I think using 3 x34's is an epic fail. This monitor was meant to be used as a replacement for 3D Surround. When you have that much ultra wide viewing your Peripheral Vision isn't going to pick up enough view unless you are sitting far back from the screen's and at that point your just looking at this ridiculous wide view, its over kill. I went to Art School and one of the first things they teach you about is the Cone of Vision and how to use it as an artist. When I'm sitting at the helm of my computer, I'm actually sitting exactly 21 inches from my eyeballs to my screen surface (yes I actually measured it and yes it's very close but at 1440p I can't see any pixels which is the beauty of this monitor.) and the view I get with this x34 ultra wide screen paired with the curve fills in that Peripheral Vision quite nicely and my Cone of Vision is met with ease. Anyone claiming that using these in 3D Surround is going to be more beneficial for viewing simply lacks the knowledge of optics and is just wasting money on power, and the additional hardware.

I've been watching Linus for many years now and he is usually pretty honest about giving the pro's and con's in his reviews. I will agree though that he generally leans more towards the pro's most likely because he is paid too by the vendors as part of the advertisement. I'm interested to hear his thoughts on this though.
