If you scroll down to my post of when I got my x34 you can see the vesa mount.

oh my bad, I'm 99% sure the Asus will also feature a vesa mount. My guess would be 100x100. Although the circular connection in the rear of the Asus monitor seems screw-less it probably hooks in some how which underneath would most likely reveal the vesa mount. The OSD control looks to be a lot better than the Acer from the vids I've seen but once you've set your settings there really is no need to go back in. Had the Asus come out at the same time as the x34 at the same price point I think I still would have gone with the x34 because I really like the exterior shell minus the gloss lol. The stand which I don't actually use also looks so much better imo. I think the Asus will probably be a bit cheaper at launch, my guess $1200 depending on how long it takes them to get them out.

quick question there then is it easy to change brightness in the osd on the acer? i.e no need to navigate menus? because my pc is in the living room next to windows. in the day it's obviosuly much brighter than the nighttime so i'll probably change brightness quite often.

However this issue has nothing to do with the performance of games so there's no reason not to use shots from it in my explanation of the problem. The main reason I bought my X34 was for DayZ, trying to make the most of the frames I have.

I've got a pretty busy weekend going on but I will collect more examples of the issue from other games and confirm that what smoobandit wants me to check as well. I'm already pretty confident his assumptions are correct. I also think more people probably have this problem than realize it yet.

However, areas of contrast, or large solidly coloured areas show them up quite dramatically so that even when sitting 1m away from the screen they are both visible and distracting.

I have tried g-sync on/60hz with OC mode enabled and I get the lines. I turn off OC but keep the same refresh and the lines go away.

Not all programs show them up in the same way. I first noticed the lines in the solid green landscapes of Kerbal Space Program. Playing Batman Arkham Asylum they show up in the bright areas of the energy gates (as seen in the pics above), but are hard to see/invisible elsewhere. In Unigine Heaven I care barely discern them in the sky in some shots. But in Unigine Valley they show up all over the place - normally against dark green or grey blurred landscapes.

The most obvious place I have seen them - because it is a static scene - is nvidia's own g-sync pendulum demo. They show up dramatically clearly in the left hand pillar and in the shaded area of floor under the pendulum. Because the software allows you to switch between g-sync and non-g-sync easily it is really simple to turn the lines on and off.

I just accidentally opened the service menu by going spastic on the OSD and cannot replicate it. The service menu had the option to enable "burn in" and provided FW infomation on GSYNC (FW 4.2), the panel(0.2), and more. It was some combination of buttons I can't figure out, but I also managed to move my entire OSD to the upper left side of the monitor at the same time that I opened the service menu.

I had to reset my monitor's settings to bring the OSD back to it's original place.
Please let me know how your replacement goes! I'm leaning towards the assumption that this issue is inherent to the technology.


Found these videos on Youtube regarding the G-sync+OC Scan Lines issue:

imo I would say no, the OSD of the Acer is horrible to say the least but there are options to setup one button profiles that you may be able to have different brightness settings set to each. I have not yet tried this but I may depending on how Acer plans to handle/fix the back light issue.

I haven't had any issues with my x34 that you guys have been describing or what was described in these vids. Do you guys think this problem is due to the type/model video cards you are using? I've read a few posts of ppl reporting issues with some 700 series cards but I don't know if it's the monitor or the cards or drivers or what tbh.

Don't think so. I have a GTX770. I ran the monitor on a friend's machine using a GTX980 and the problem was identical.

This suggestion might be far fetched: But if you use an extension cord to power your monitor and PC from one socket, could you try running the monitor on a separate power socket? Do you have proper grounding in your residence? Are you guys running 110V or 220V?

I'm in the process of uploading some videos of this. Neither of them are very good but without a better camera than my phone I don't have a lot of options for sharing more detail.

In the first video right between the 40-45 second mark is the best look at it. I know the image on the screen is supposed to be rippling water but trust me the lines you are seeing are not part of what should be rendering in game.

I won't try to point out any other scene specifically, I'd like to hear what people think on their own.

2nd Video: https://youtu.be/1H2e34HII1c

Edit: LOL, my videos are so crappy that YouTube only processed them in 360p.

Here are the OneDrive links to the source files (download them for the best view):
