If they were, then they are still current monitors because Acer did not do any further developement of those very early panels other than upgrade their firmware.

I ended up getting mine from amazon italy.

Price with shipping ended up at around 1350 usd. Dont pay the eu vat when ordering, so it was only 1000ish euros. (shipping rather pricey)
Took about 6 days to arrive via UPS.

Batch seems pretty decent from their side. I have very slight blb on the bottom left corner. (Completely not noticable in games)
I also have the screen not lighting up after waking up. If i shake my mouse the image comes back. I cant really describe it as being annoying at all.

I was in contact with the guys in singapore via http://www.x-tremesolution.com/ and they are getting stock begin november. (they ship to Hong Kong)

I ended up not going with them since the price was the same and the return policy on amazon is better. The people from that store were also annoying to deal with. Getting a response from them was like talking to a brick wall.

Italy amazon is the only amazon that ships to Hong Kong so keep tabs on it if you are not willing to wait any longer.

I got mine from neweggs very first batch.

No blue banding
No coil whine
Hits 100 hz no problem (2 x Titan X's driving it)

Some BLB or IPS glow (whatever you want to call it) in the top and bottom left corners that lessened over a full week of heavy use (gaming) and is exaggerated by pics anyway.

Unsure if I have the "black spray paint pattern" looking problem when resuming from sleep mode because I have sleep mode disabled in Windows power management.

http://www.amazon.it/Acer-X34BMIPHZ-Luminosit%C3%A0-Risoluzione-Tecnologia/dp/B00X45CMO0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1446548269&sr=8-1&keywords=acer+x34+predator

Anybody with an X34 play Arma 3???

I cant get greater than 60 FPS/HZ regardless of what I do with g-sync, v-sync, etc

There is no "setting" for max refresh rate like there is in games like Far Cry 4 which allow you to select 100 in the game menu.

My Arma appears to be locked at 60 hz (checked using the yellow refresh rate OSD in the top right corner).

Anyone?

EDIT: a manual edit of the arma.cfg file (located in documents/games not in the steamapps dir) and i found a "refresh rate = 60" in there. I changed that to 100 and now Im getting > 60 (around 70-80 ish) FPS as counted by the x34 yellow OSD in the corner (Evga precision X OSD won't show in Arma 3 for some reason).

I agree that the left side of the screen seems to be worse than the right - but I do think the problem is visible on the right as well. I'm really sorry I can't produce a better video of it.

Here's the OneDrive link if you want the original video: http://1drv.ms/1M8sux4

Yeah, I can see the lines and I think it was demonstrated well enough if one knows what they're looking for.

Do you think it could be related to some function in the OSD itself? Maybe having the refresh rate counter ON produces this? Anything power related like Deep Sleep could produce this?

Loosely speaking, if the power supply is not clean for some reason, noise could bleed into the signal side of the scaler producing some kind of interference pattern which we see as horizontal lines which are accentuated when G-sync and OC are on. I'm just throwing ideas here, nothing concrete. If you have an adapter with the same rating you could try that with the monitor if the sockets fit. Even better, if you have access to a multimeter or an oscilloscope, it might be worth checking how clean the DC voltage from the adapter is.

I didn't have any part of the OSD on during that recording. I don't have Deep Sleep enabled.

I was thinking about power cleaness as well but the other guy said he took his monitor across town to a friend's place and had the same problem. Maybe I'll buy something like this and see if that helps? My surge protector is due to be replaced anyway.

It was weird, while I was recording that video I swear that sometimes the effect went away completely even with G-Sync on, it was so hard to tell for sure. Other times I thought I saw it when G-Sync was off, my poor eyes. tongue.gif
