I'm not throwing the box away yet!
this is exactally my problem. Post that here pls:

Btw, update about Europe.

A few weeks ago only one store (well, the biggest one in Scandinavia) moved the date to 20 Nov.

Now some other big stores are pushing the date too. So it seems like very late November is the time........ mad.gif


But anyway, I don't want it if the problems keep coming up tongue.gif


Is there anyone, ANYONE?? That has a flawless monitor? One without issues, or do exactly everyone has them but only a few guys here do, funfordcobra and some others?

I would rather skip 21:9 and buy a regular Swift/Acer XB270Hu instead of that crappy monitor!

I just can't live with the design, it annoys me every time, and I would never buy such a expensive monitor to hang it on the wall.

I understand, the design is not for everyone, I also agree it is expensive but it should be good (better than the ACER)

It actually needs to be off for hours.

Other than this, i love the monitor and have no other problems. This defect only effects me 1% of the time. As soon as windows completly boots, its ok.. I dont plan on returning it unless it gets worse. My panel has almost zero blb now and dont think ill get another like this my first shot again.

I didn't try this when the computer is off for hours as I usually just sleep my system and monitor. I will do a full shut down now and see what the results are.

Ok I did a full shut down of my PC & Monitor (no sleep). Everything booted up fine. One thing I will mention is as the pc is loading windows I do get the monitor input notification for DP but once I'm full logged into windows it goes away. I also get the input notification for DP when I wake it from sleep but it goes away shortly after. If the input notification for DP was randomly poping up during normal tasks or during the middle of my game play I would find that unacceptable but as it is I personally have no issues with it.

I will also try an over night shut down of both the PC & Monitor and let you know the results tomorrow.

I've been ignoring you up till now and the only reason I'm posting a response to your ignorant and yet arrogant comments is to say I have had ZERO issues with my x34 as of yet aside from the IPS glow which is common with these types of monitors and the fact that mine is minimal and not worth it to rma for. All this proves is that there are still QC issues. Asus I guarantee will also have QC issues. The advantage of the Acer model is that it is relatively available now, not next year. The Asus model will not have anything over the Acer model due to DP 1.2 limitations.

I feel the same way. This monitor is great and I will avoid using their RMA unless something very bad starts to happen. From the pics I've seen, I don't think the next monitor will be as good (BLB wise) as this one.

So far NOONE has reported any dead pix and Stangs55 is the only one who is flickering and has reported not reaching 100hz.

If you get the backlight on half your screen all you need to do is powercycle your monitor and it clears up. If this is the only issue, I can live with it NP.
