On a white background, even if it is just a website, a very loud, clear whine/buzzing sound. It was hardly audible at 60Hz (had to get my ear close), but at 100Hz I can hear it from 1M away easily. I thought that should be fixed? Mine is from the shipment just received by overclockers UK yesterday.

Is there a fix or that is definitely an RMA?


Edit: Definitely going back - stable in Windows, but going into a game (e.g. GTA V) causes the screen to switch on/off constantly until back in Windows. Driver issues? Can't see how.

 

The latest Nvidia driver has issues with G-Sync, there is an hotfix out. Are you using the hotfix or not? If you aren't give it a try first.

Thx for the info. Im trying that hot fix right now. I think g-sync was working fine but I'm baffled by the Far Cry 4 problem I cant solve.

Looks better/enjoyable in regular lighting then in a very dark room. I always game with a lamp on anyways.

True, as long it looks good in the lighting and enjoyable.





Here is the lightning I game in. In person it looks way better.

And not to repeat myself here, but the BLB and/or IPS glow (whatever you want to call it) is WAAAY exaggerated on camera. Im using a Nikon 1 J5 to take the pics i posted and its a nice camera. And it definitely "over exposes" (if thats the right term) the orange/yellish glow in the corners. When seen through the naked eye, its no where near that pronounced.

Im sure some monitors have it worse than others but Im having no issues with that.

Update:

The hotfixed fixed my far cry 4 BSOD crash too! Thanks!!

Running at 90+ FPS and it is SMOOTH. I see the appeal of the extra 40hz in FPS games (though again, in Ark Surivial it makes no difference coming from my 60hz LG 34")

Yeah thats not to bad. Currently it would be hard to get a rma replacement due to the fact that Acer had limited supply of these monitors. If you were to rma it and they fixed your actual monitor instead of waiting for an replacement then that wouldn't be so bad but I honestly don't know how they are handling their rma's. The only issue I'm a little concerned with at the moment is the boot up half back screen, mainly just concerned that it will get worse over time. If it stays as it is then I'm fine with it as it only lights up half way on boot up but becomes fully lit shortly after post. Others are actually having issues with the half back lit while in Windows which is the concern I have that it might develop into later. fingers x'd

Thx for the post. If I ever do decide to get this game at least I know there is a fix for it.

Is there no led or visual indicator to tell if Gsync is enabled on this monitor? all the other ones seem to have a specific color LED.

No, there is not. You can manually set the LED color and LED effect (like ripple, pulse, etc) in the OSD. But there is no effect for "g-sync on/off"

The more I play the more I'm convinced it's not me. Every game that I add a slight sharpening filter too looks noticeably crisper. It's like the monitor is blurring it slightly.

OK I think I got as good a picture as I'm going to get of it, hopefully someone can see what I mean:
