It holds, but im nervous as hell

So I just noticed that the bottom part of the OEM stand is thicker than the top, but the OEM screws are all the same size.

The bottom two thread holes ( dont know the proper term) are shorter in depth than the top 2.

I really want to tighten the bottom two screws but even the originals or the screws provided in the wall mount kit are too short?

how does this make sense? I must be missing something...

So now that the monitor is at proper height in relation to my desk and chair I do notice some substantial backlight bleed from bottom left corner.

I didn't notice it at first because the monitor was a little lower than I like it, but now playing witcher 3 I see it clearly in dark rooms/caves.

I'm not sure If I'll pull out the hairdryer or just wait it out to see if it improves. I have another 3 weeks to exchange at microcenter but I'm sure they wont have any stock and I'll be crying for fallout 3.

You have to use the metal accessory bundled inside the box to fit with your Ergotron. There are 4 screws with different lenght wink.gif

My X34 is pretty good, minor BLB but upper side of the screen is a bit warmer, so the whites are reddish.
Is it the same for some of you guys?

Tried that before i posted, screws are the same size except one is flat and one is pan head. Still did not make much of a difference.

And i had to use the screws that came with the arm in order to use the spacers. THE samellest screws are still not flush, same size as the ones included with the monitor.

Sorry post from my phone

Confirmed screws from the included wall mount adapter are the same size as the screws removed when removing the stand.

Also the stand is of a different thickness from top to bottom of the mount, so the included Acer screws in the wall mount adapter are not correct.

@ <80% brightness the PC will boot up normally every time. (So I have tested)





Now our problem is, who plays at 80% brightness? I have to get my pc down to 30 brightness at least to not notice the backlight bleed.

I am also running @ 30% or so brightness (I think 32 or 34 roughly, not sure I'd have to check) and with the current lighting I game in at that level of brightness eliminates the IPS glow I get. If I had to run it at 80% brightness I would have to RMA this back and just say screw it and go with another monitor. As long as mine continues to be usable I'm good where I am. I would like to see this fixed though and I would be interested in having mine fixed not replaced if possible because I really like my current x34 as I see it as perfect as one could expect from these types of displays.

The metal accessory is for wall mount only correct? You cannot slide a standard vesa mount inside

Update-

Ok I did locate some screws in the box rougly 1mm to 2mm longer than the orginals.With the spacers they are flush on the bottom. Its not as tight as grip as i would like as when hanging TV's but it will do fine.

Apologies to anyone if i sounded harsh

If anyone is still looking for one in US looks like NCIX still has some. I just picked one up for $1,299. It was $1,790 earlier around 5:00 PM EST. The weird thing is I tried to do a price match against newegg and they denied me. They told me I had to spend $1,790. I check back around 11 and the price is now $1,299. Hopefully the order goes through.
