clearly show that it's the x34. if you click around the OP's post you'll get linked to the seller's thread. I don't wanna relink it here because I didn't get authorization from him to do so.
before you pm the seller if he'll ship to hong kong, he won't. I already PM'ed him and he confirmed he wouldnt' this morning.

WHY would the PG348Q be better than the X34? It uses an identical panel. Asus have just proven with the PG279Q that despite all the extra time they had getting that to market, it's not much better than the Acer XB270HU, based on the numerous examples exhibiting horrendous bleed and glow. It doesn't matter who the monitor is made by, if the panel sucks then there's no less chance of getting a lemon. If you prefer the design of the Asus fair enough, that's subjective, but anyone thinking they are getting a better quality monitor by paying more for it from Asus is kidding themselves. No reason the Asus should be a penny more.

Just a thought concerning the lovely flickering problems I've had....

I've been racking my brain trying to think about when exactly the issues started and I might have realized something important...or it could just be coincidence...

The screen flickering started immediately after I had run the i1Display Pro i1Profiler multiple times to calibrate the display. I had run probably 10 different tests all with the large patch setting (more colors tested) and automatic display calibration set to on. This program will bacially display a bunch of different colors on the screen while the hardware takes measurements. Maybe the quick swapping of full screen colors damaged the electronics somehow? I know it's a stretch, but that when the issues started....just trying to think of anything that could help...

Ok I just assumed based on the price.

Thanks for taking the time to get hold of him I appreciate it smile.gif

no problem. the price is oddly cheap but it's directly from Acer so I'm not complaining. it is an Asian based company afterall.

if you or skypine have any ideas on how to get these sets to hkg i'm all ears!

It is f-ing ridiculous that this thing is from a TAIWANESE based company and we have to jump through expensive (shipping wise) hoops to get one in HK, 'spore, Japan, BJ, etc right now.

I'd imagine, at least in HK, it will show up at Wan Chai computer centre eventually but for now if you dont have a buddy in the States who is willing to FDX/UPS it to you, its gonna be tough!

Normally I'd agree but the X34 is having a lot more than just BLB issues. None of the flickering, black blob showing up on screen, or coil whine was present on the LG or Dell.

Acer monitors and iProfiler ADC are not working well together. Don't use it. Go fully manual. ADC makes some Acer monitors go into ''test mode". Probably what is happening to your monitor. Got the same problem with my XB270HU couple of months ago.

You need to reset the menu then it will go away. Holding the second and fifth bottons together while the test pattern is flashing will stop this. Your monitor is fine, don't send it back.

You can use iProfiler but only in full manual mode. Don't use ADC.

I have owned many dell and LG panels.

1. 1 report of flickering and it may be the calibrator he hooked up to it.

2. every lcd panel manufacturer has blobs occasionally its a common defect and just means you got a bad panel or banged up in shipping. ( I believe dell has slightly better QC but not much )

3. Coil whine is a direct correlation of having this panel at 100HZ which is 10hz below the physical bandwidth threshold. The overclocked Korean monitors did the same thing randomly. It could also be dirty power from the wall. I believe only 220v units have done this. No 110v.


The only thing I'm worried about is the backlight sleep problem. It only effects me about 1% of usage time and clears up right when windows boots, but I don't know if this is the type of thing that gets worse over time. If the panel loses all backlight, its a $1400 brick.

We are waiting on official word from acer in the link in my sig.


The only real manufacturer to have the highest QC is apple/mac. I hate to say it but its true. I hate apple/mac but you are hard pressed to EVER get a defect from them. If you do, its a no questions swap at apple store. (which are about as common as gas stations now days..)
