[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 420

post #4191 of 6126
I was able to get mine in Canada directly from Acer. I think the rep said there was 5 on the site for the first go around.

Some observations.

-- Yes the HDMI/DP/USB cords are short, I'm using other ones that I happened to have around.
-- I have had ZERO problems with banding, flickering, black areas or excessive IPS Glow. There is a bit of subtle glow around the edges but watching a dark movie last night, didn't notice it.
-- If you are running a higher Hz monitor and are replacing it with this one, make sure you remove the driver or change the resolution down to below 100.
-- Don't forget to turn your SLI back on smile.gifsmile.gif (Yes i'm an idiot)
-- I basically had some issues with getting into windows 10, the video driver loading up and then my screen went black. I could view everything fine in Safe Mode or if the GPU driver was not installed. In the end I had to use the HDMI cable to get everything setup in Win 10, then switch inputs and all was fine. Sadly this has to be done when you restart your computer. It is a simple input switch back n forth but it is annoying. Soooooo Acer is looking at it. I don't think it is a monitor issue but who knows what will happen. I think i'm the first to have this issue.

Other than that (and I wouldn't RMA it for such a simple issue), picture is great, immersive and is great in gaming. I'm loving it.

Hi, just chiming in to give testimony that my first-batch monitor with the blue banding that I've sent in to Acer Germany last week has returned today with the new firmware 2.0 update. And yes, the blue banding problem is totally gone! biggrin.gif Kudos to Acer for the fast repair (it took only 5 workdays).

Also the backlight darkness after wake-up from stand-by seems to have been fixed by the firmware too. I have not been able to reproduce it so far.

Pretty much all my backlight bleed is gone after a week of heavy use. Using 26 brightness, 47 contrast.

Good for you! Now, only hoping that the monitors will be under $1,000 by next year, before 5/2016 thumb.gif I was excited about this monitor in April but for some reason I'm not attracted to paying "anything" for it anymore. Perhaps, when all the "I must have it now" people have gotten one and sells begin to dwindle, the price may drop.

I think the main reason why I'm not attracted to this monitor anymore is because it's not a huge monitor which was the impression I had and it's lacking height compared to how long it is. In other words, it appears thin. I guess that's where the ultra wide comes in.

Well, hopefully they'll release a large/huge 4K gaming monitor in the future and have 2 GPUs that can run it. That was my real intention when looking for a new monitor back in April but since it takes several GPUs just to run it at 60Hz, I downgraded to 3440 x 1440 at 60-100Hz.

4k gaming is at lest 2 years off. There isn't a connection available that can do over 60hz at true 4k 4096x2160.

They may be able to squeeze 10 more fps by using uhd 3840x2160 but the panels will still have huge amounts of input lag (50-90ms) that even gsync can't remedy.(without having to use a TN panel)

I tried the only gaming 4k monitor available the xb280hk and it was horrible. TN using 4k basically cancel eachother out.


The next thing will be OLED 2560x1440 and 3340x1440 at 100hz-180hz because no one wants to play at 60hz.

Sad to see that this still isn't fixed and multiple screens can't be run at 100hz.

Weird thing with my flickering is that it doesn't happen if I run a game at 100Hz...or even browser windows....which is what's make me keep hope that it's a driver or software issue...

Can someone tell me what the actual bezel size is for the top and bottom?

I hope you're right.. But right now 90+% is playing at 60Hz, even on PC..

Most people are just ignorant about the fact higher refreshrates will imporve their gamingexperience..
