[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 442

post #4411 of 6126
No blue banding

No dead pixels that I can tell (the screen is large). If there are they are in the top and bottom corners and I wouldn't care anyway.

Very little BLB on the upper right corner. Now there IS IPS glow uniformed around the screen. It's not bad, not bad at all. We're never gonna get deep blacks with these anyway. I came from a Qnix 120hz and the BLB was unbearable. I tried several ways to fight it, including all the posts on these boards about about bending the frame, electrical tape etc..Nothing really worked. It was horrific along the bottom and would drive me nuts in Skyrim. This is much better. Testing games is next.

Pics if anyone cares









Obviously I haven't updated the specs in my sig in years...should get on that.

Don't forget about that ROG tax though. There's also the fact that I got my Swift at best Buy for $799.99 CAD late last year, and they're now $949.99. I wouldn't expect this to go down much any time soon. Maybe a $100 drop to $1599 by mid next year if our dollar improves drastically.

With that said I feel like the PG348Q will easily hit $2300 or more.

I was going to order from them today, if my luck at Microcenter didn't turn out the way it did.

I called them yesterday, seemed legit, read some reviews of an employee who states many federal gov agencies are customers. They are only charging $1200 with free shipping to boot. won't charge the card until order is shipped so you can cancel.

You must search by the manufacturer ID though cm.cx1aa.a01 make sure its not .001 in the last octet, that's the freesync.

I say go for it, they had 5 left yesterday scheduled for 11/3

I paid from Acer Canada $1799 + tax and $55 overnight shipping.. Overall price was about $1934.

On another note, I keep seeing the validity test with the grey/white/black boxes. Could someone tell me what test this is and a url to download it?

I'd love to run it.

Thanks.

Yea i ordered one. Same price as a regular one shipped to my APO address instead of newegg charging me 90 USD for shipping.

On another note, anyone know the difference between UM.CX1AA.A01 and UM.CX1AA.002? If you look up either one they both show up as the X34.

The test is done to verify your screen overclock to determine if it is stable, so no frame skipping.

If the last portion is .00X that is a notification of the freesync version, bmijpphz to the best of my knowledge.

The gsync must be .A01 and its also Bmiphz.

I admit I have not seen a .002 version but unless I see the .A for the first character in the last portion its a red flag for freesync.

No frame skipping.. Looks good thanks!
post #4420 of 6126
Alright this is embarrassing. I am an enthusiast, been building for almost 20 years now, but I cannot, for the life of me, calibrate displays, I do not have the eye for it. I have a spyder pro 3 but I do not feel like using it right now, busy testing other functions of the monitor.

TO THOSE THAT USE THE TFT CENTRAL SETTINGS, or all you smart people...

The settings call for the RGB (red green blue) values, but there is also cyan magenta and yellow within the OSD. Do I leave these values as defualt? Theyre set to 150 something versus my custom RGB which is 49,49 and 50? What am I missing? I want to compare the TFT central setting with whatever my spyder 3 assigns.

Thanks, and don't laugh.
