[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 409

post #4081 of 6126
Just got mine delivered. Ordered from the first batch acer.com offered.

Pretty sure I got a good one. No dead pixels, overclocks to 100Hz easily, no coil whine, no noticeable BLB (Just a bit of IPS glow that I can't even see while using it).

SO happy!

From what I can see the majority of peoples are getting good panels, that's encouraging. Still waiting for it to be sold here to get one :rolleyes:

 

Is there an owner's thread yet?

Overall, I would say there is a better chance of getting a good one (i.e minimal glow and BLB) vs the Asus PG279Q, which is the only other high performance 1440p G-Sync IPS panel available at the moment (also in the XB270HU). AUO have really screwed up with that, whereas the LG used in the X34 seems to have the edge... but there are still issues and by no means certain you'll get one you're happy with. Still somewhat of a lottery, just with better odds.

Yeah, that's certainly true. Infact I did say specifically "good panels" and not "good monitors", wheter the firmware and everything else works is to be seen :p

 

Waiting to see what Acer says about the issue with half of the screen not working. I hope it does not require another firmware update, if it does I'll have to wait until next year before they sell it here in Italy. Considering the lottery trouble I'm not keen on buying it from other shops in Europe, it will be a hassle to return it :mad:

So Acer removed the product page from all their stores... I wonder if this is back light related.

Newegg.ca says by December.

Incomming firmware shipping requests =/

That's ominous... So far so good with mine. A little BLB that isn't really bothering me, otherwise mine seems perfect. Will probably add that extended warranty though.

Wow....ominous indeed...

Maybe I'm going to have to RMA mine if Newegg isn't getting replacements....

Well crap...I sold my XB270HU last week and have been waiting to get my hands on this as I missed the first round of shipments. Guess I'll just be using my 980ti's to power an old crappy 22" 1080p 60hz monitor for awhile.

Just seems like Acer released this too early given the issues some people are experiencing.

Although I'm sure Acer will fix these issues, it's starting to make sense why the Asus is coming out next year now.
