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
