Put it back on fullscreen only and it gets over 300.

Very odd

Definitely use the hotfix drivers, 358.59!

So I'm thinking about buying a new DP cable to try and address the horizontal lines problem. I'm also thinking about getting some kind of line filter for the AC adapter. Do you think I should even bother or just return it for a replacement? Or just wait a bit longer before I do anything? So far no work from Acer about the issue, they seem preoccupied with the back-light problem...

Edit: for $10 I went ahead and ordered the 3ft version of this cable which seems to be the best option out there. I figured shorter was better too. Will report back about it on Friday.

That is the first resort of anyone who has a monitor problem. And some do find success with new cables. I bought the exact same thing last year to see if the pixel inversion issues with the PG278Q would go away (they didn't). The important thing to check if the cable is shielded but they rarely mention these things in the specifications. The gold plating of the body of the connector is just a ruse. It is worth the effort to see if the scanlines go away for just 10$.

Well that cable is listed in the displayport.org certified products database AND the link from there to the MFG page for it shows that it is triple shielded. thumb.gif

So, if a better cable is going to help, this is about as good as it gets. I'm not optimistic though.

I just wanted to try something before doing a return. One nice thing if I have to do a return, buying the monitor got me a free 6 months of NewEgg Premier so I should have free shipping on my return.

you just put everything back in the original packaging, and wait for the delviery company to come collect? sorry if it sounds stupid, i've never return shipped anything in my life. dat stuff just isn't for asia but i'm curious haha.

I haven't done a return with NewEgg in longer than I can remember but generally if shipping is pre-paid they send you a tag from UPS or FedEx to print out - then you can either drop the box off at one of their locations or call to schedule it to be picked up.

Just signed up to say that I am getting the horizontal lines too, as Dr Fish has said and as I am finding, it only appears when G-Sync is on, it also gets worse the lower the FPS I have, playing something like Star Citizen's Arena Commander where the FPS is on the lowish side (40s) creates noticeable lines which are very distracting! While playing something like Planetside 2 where I can get a consistent 80 - 100 FPS means it is very hard to spot - but I'm pretty sure it is still there. It's sad because apart from that, the monitor is perfect, the refresh rate is excellent, the screen quality is great and I have very low BLB (at least compared to my Dell U3415W). Now I'm stuck in a dilemma of what to do - I have a good sample apart from the lines but now that I've noticed it, I can't ignore it. So what do I do, if I RMA'd it can it be fixed (We don't yet know whether this is general problem for all X34's or not), or should I just cut my losses and send it back? Any thoughts would be great, If people want I can give my own pics of the lines, so long as my phone camera can pick them up.

looks like more and more people are noticing this.

Seems like it - it's beginning to look like it is a problem affecting all of them, as Mountainlifter has said, this was a problem with the TN ROG Swift too and seems related to the G-Sync module, although it is odd it gets worse at lower FPS. It's very frustrating tbh - a perfect monitor tarnished by this one thing! But if I can't use G-Sync because it degrades image quality then I may as well use my Dell!
