ACER is officially pulling stock from retailers because of the issues. Anyone looking to get one will have to wait.

I think it is for many issues not just the back light bleed.

Official word from Acer:
Quote:
I appreciate your patience while we investigated the concerns discussed here related to the X34 backlight waking from sleep. After working with you and performing our own testing, we found that this symptom is seen most often when lower brightness settings are selected. Unfortunately, a firmware or “do it yourself” solution is not possible to address this. Instead Acer has identified that a hardware level remedy is required. So currently our repair and contact centers are being brought up to speed to assist.

This means, we suggest contacting your local support team who can help setup the repair services. Our repair turnaround time is very short in most regions, which means you will only be without your X34 for a few days. Note that Acer is also taking steps to apply this solution to inventory that has not reached customers yet.

Again thank you for your patience and assistance in working through this.

No word on the horizontal lines issue but you know I've asked!

And for those of us who received them? Now what?

A recall must be to do with the lines or the half dark screen issue, maybe to do with G-Sync perhaps... it certainly won't be because of BLB or glow because that can't be fixed.

You have to HAVE IT NOW and you don't care what the price is, and that is fine. After all, it is YOUR money that you are blowing away. But. fortunately for me, I do not need to have to HAVE IT NOW, so I'll be $400.00 dollars richer while you'll be $400.00 poorer from this purchase.

It's not about being "financially situated." It's about what is the product WORTH TO YOU? Just because you're "financially situated" doesn't mean you began to buy shares/products at any price.

I highly doubt it. It took Acer XR341CK little over two months to drop from $1,199.99 to $849.99.

Where can we find out more information on this? What about those who already have one? Mine's fine, no problems other than standard IPS stuff but I'd like to know more about this.

Uhh trying to draw a parallel by comparing freesync + AMD VERSUS Gsync + Nvidia is pretty absurd. They appeal to completely different market segments because Nvidia + Gsync is the premium market leader at the moment. Your literally comparing Corvette sales to Cobalt sales.

And as far as pricing and value, that is in the eye of the beholder....this X34 does everything I need and replaces three displays on my desk which cost well over the X34s cost.
