[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 445

post #4441 of 6126
I know people have uploaded frame skip tests, but I'm pretty sure not at 1/5 exposure like the website recommends. There is an iPhone app called ProCam that lets you change the exposure, I'm not sure if the app is free or on android, but if someone can do the frame skip test with 1/5 exposure that'd be great. Thanks

He told me through pm he has worked there for a decade. How is it that I fully got in computers in 2012 just tinkering on gaming rigs and know more than a him?

I'm glad there is at least someone at Acer going hands on with the issues, maybe this is the crash course they need. Hopefully it will actually lead to some kind of resolution.

Ok so I think I'm the first person in Hong Kong to get one. Arrived today. Upgraded from the same-paneled cruved LG 34" in order to experience 100hz and g-sync.

Impressions so far:

*No set up/detection issue on first boot. I was previouisly using DP with the LG (including using the same USB and DP cable that came with the LG). BIOS and Windows 10 saw the monitor just fine
*OSD is pretty horrible with respect to navigating using the buttoms
*I don't use the speakers (who would??) so cant comment
*Stand is fine. Same base foot print as the LG, you need a deep desk to game
*100 HZ worked fine
*Some BLB in the corners, similar to my LG. Not noticeable in games and camera makes is much more exaggerated than in real life
*Have some issues in games I didn't have before. For example, in Elite Dangerous, ALT Tabbing to the desktop now caused the screen to lock black and I couldn't get it back, had to reboot. This didn't happen with the LG
*Far Cry 4 now crashes to a BSOD immediate after loading the opening screens. Says DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER. This never happened wth the LG but it could be an issue with later NVidia drivers since I haven't played FC4 in a while
*War Thunder at 60 fps vs 100 fps. You DOO see the difference. Scenery pans around much smoother / crisper.
*In ARK surivial, I cant tell any difference between 60 fps and 100 fps, but the game may be locked at 60 or even 30 fps, I don't know.
*my LG (again, uses the same panel) was permanently "dim". I had to keep the brightness set to 100% and even then I games I had to slide the gamma slider way up just to meet the games recommended brightness setting (in those menu tests where you move a slider around until you barely see the symbol etc). This didn't bother me so I didn't send it back. This Acer, however, I had to turn the brightness pretty far down. I have brightness set at 50% and contrast set at 50%. And recommend color settings from guys yet?
*haven't had time to test other games yet, just got it today

This guy thinks he won the monitor lottery in the acer thread. lol

Ugh. That BLB is gross. Is it more apparent in a camera than in person? I have never noticed it in person, but these pictures make it seem ******* atrocious.

His camera may exaggerate the results. I just took these two pics now.. The effect looks much worse on camera than with my naked eye just staring at the screen in person:

50% brightness 50% contrast:

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.

There's a video someone uploaded on how to get to the right color settings, not the RGBCYMK ramp. When over the option for personal colour, do a *double tap* on the "in" button. If you do a single tap, it sends you to the RGBCYMK ramp, if you do a double, it sends you to the right RGB options.
