[TFTCentral] Acer Predator XR341CK 34" Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync - Page 467

post #4661 of 6126
Got my x34 setup tonight and man is this a beauty monitor.. holy $hit.

Out of box appearance is not too bad.. needs a little adjustment, but overall pretty impressed.. plenty bright and viewing angles are terrific.

So far I've overclocked it to 100hz no problem and played around in the OSD a bit. Its not a great OSD by any stretch but its also not as bad as some make it out to be.

I like the lighting on the underside.. didn't think I would, but its a nice touch. Also lighter than I expected it, and that is with the heavy stand on it. Without the stand, it'll be a pretty light display for its size. The stand is very good though.. I have it on my desk now and as I am typing, the display is staying very nice and not shaking really at all. I will be mounting mine, likely tomorrow.

BLB on mine is visible in the top left and bottom left corners the most. Elsewhere however its very slight around the edges, really not bad at all. But on the top & bottom left corner I may try the hairdryer to see if I can fix it a bit. Its certainly servicable though.. when on my desktop I don't see it at all.

Fortunately no dead pixels that I can see anywhere. Also, when I placed a fully white background I noticed zero hum coming from it. I put my face close and far and didn't hear anything.

I recorded the unboxing and will throw the vid in aftereffects and post up on YT. Will link here when its done.
In the meantime, some shots.

So far people are saying that if their brightness is set to 80 + the backlight thing stops

Well see

where did you get the wall paper?

Quick question on the monitor. If I purchase it from the US, will it come with a 240 volts adapter? Is the power 110-240 volts or is it 110 volts for US and 240 volts for EU (separate power delivery for the monitor)?
Basically, I am asking if it is a laptop like power or if it is customized to the region.

You just get 1 power brick to hook up to the monitor but 2 cables with a normal EU plug and then a weird US one in the box.. no worries there wink.gif

The EU version comes with an external power supply that can handle both 110V and 220V - there's no reason to believe they ship the US models with a different one.

The cable that connects the power supply to the wall outlet is detachable and uses a standard C5 connector (lovingly called "Mickey Mouse shaped") which is common to notebook power supply units. So even if a europlug cable is not supplied in the US, you should be able to buy one from the store or amazon.

Well see

isn't 80 too bright for normal use? what do you normally use?

maybe tell Cory over at acer forums to test his panels at low brightness? maybe they been going at it 100% lol.

edit: oops I see someone has already asked him on the forum
