Only time will tell.

This recall is ONLY the backlight sleep issue. NOTHING else so don't be too quick to send your x34 off yet. There will be more fixes...

It wont be 850 in 2 months that is for sure. The freesync monitors are all cheaper solutions than GSYNC ones are. It maybe drop to 999 but not much lower than that and that might be a few more then 2 months. Also this will be the top dog along with the asus for some time to come. Next step is VR.

I believe there are now 2000+ units delivered: recalling those for a "OEM factory upgrade" will be very COSTY !

but not as much as the VW Diesel story biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Yes, it will be costly. Though I would venture to say there is a huge markup on these monitors so they probably aren't losing any money all things considered.

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.

lol now you're just reaching..for anything. I'd gladly pay 400 for a higher quality of life. (that's what this is going to give me to some degree) By the time this is 849, I'll have moved on to a 21:9 OLED 144hz DP 1.3 monitor 4k (or higher resolution) and you will be on that thread crying how its not worth it to you.. lol

The first gen panels like my old LG34UM95P are just now falling to 850 after 2 years. You've gone beyond wishful thinking and stepped into delusion lol.

I think you should go ahead and buy the CKA, you seem more in lines with an AMD fanboy and they are just silly 99% of the time.

The Acer guy did say they were at least aware of the horizontal line issue.

I'm pretty sure I'll be returning mine for a refund come Monday, next week is the last week I can do so with NewEgg.

Man these RMA's are going to eat heavily into Acer's profits on this monitor. They brought it on themselves though not thoroughly testing. I wonder what the chances are that you would recieve your exact panel back. Mines pretty good and I wouldn't want to get someone elses crappy one. wink.gif

Do you think companies are really that stupid? They've already charged that to you beforehand.

Great post once again. Just trying to antagonize someone?
