[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 422

post #4211 of 6126
Since July, when both gsync and vsync are on, what happens is that when you are outside the gsync range, vsync turns on automatically. No harm in doing both. What some people do is having only gsync on and the vsync off. This way, when fps are over the maximum monitor refresh rate, you are not input locked to the max rate. The gains are arguably minimal, I force both on through the control panel.

How is G-sync working on fast competitive games like BF4, CS GO and so on? Is it to much delay?

LOL...

So, I opened a chat with Acer, asking them if I can add my apartment number to my account - they gave me a 1-800 number to call. So I called that number, and was put through to the extremely rude Acer support. "Uhmmm, ok I guess" - is NOT an appropriate response when a customer says "Hey there, how are you?"... This is not high school. I've seen plenty of people fired for less.

When I asked them if I could add the apartment number to my address, they asked what I wanted to order. I told them it wasn't listed currently, and that stock would likely arrive sometime in the middle of the night again, and be out of stock when the morning arrives - So I'd need my address ready, so I can order asap. After the man grunted in response, I asked if I could place an order in the middle of the night, and the next day call and correct the address. He said "No, we'll just cancel it."...

I asked him how I could buy the item from them once it came in stock, and he said "Sorry, there's nothing I can do.".

It is very weird when a company does not want you to buy their product... Never mind how rude he was. Keep this in mind when purchasing this expensive monitor. I know that this experience is directly effected my confidence in purchasing a unit for $1699.99... I'll probably still do it because of my immense lack of self-control.

Damn. I'm trying to find other people that game on the LG 34UC87C. I guess its not popular in the gaming department and men't more for that video editing / photo stuff.

It is the same as the LG34UM95P except it has a curved screen. All other aspects are exactly the same. They are great monitors, but they are no x34. Not even close. Although I did have sellers remorse after I sold my lg34um95p, the x34 was staring at me so I felt much better and having 2 3340x1440 monitors is alittle too redundant IMO lol.

There's a user there who is very quick to update the exes.

@Ryzone I have the 34UC97 which I think is exactly the same as the 87 except I think the stand and possibly one has thunderbolt and one doesn't (not sure on that). I game on it all the time as it is my primary monitor.
