The only reason I'm still around is I'm waiting to see how Acer plans to address the half black screen wake up.
Btw the Asus is going to be the same panel and gsync chip so other than some minor issues that can be fixed with firmware I don't see them doing anything different with theirs other than the exterior build, name and maybe a different OSD format.
The only reason I went with the Acer is because it was available now not 6 months from now. If the tables were turned I would have bought the Asus cuz the name doesn't really matter to me just the level of product performance.
I think the only possible advantage to buying the Asus next year is that it might be cheaper by then but again thats next year. Personally I'd rather pay a little bit more to have it now not next year. If it was due out like two months from now that would be a different story.
Before claiming out of any doubt the specs will be 100% identical, I'll wait for an official Asus statement.
Too many people speculate before the companies even release their products it's astounding. That exact X34 is the best example. A lot of people concluded it would be a 75hz panel (even for the GSYNC version) and went the swift or xb route before getting any confirmation from Acer. Not sure they are so happy with their reasoning now.
If it's the same panel then fine, we might have the same IPS glow and identical characteristics. But maybe the BLB won't be as bad as the panel will be mounted differently and that alone would justify going with Asus for me.
As a consumer I like to have choices. I might settle for the Predator but not before I carefully compare it with its rival.Edited by Merranza - 10/29/15 at 5:54am
