Another question for you folks, do EVERYONE has these latest scanline problems? Seems like that it's a lot of happy people not complaining about anything...

I've been trying to get people to confirm that. We need some people without the problem to simulate what the people are doing that have the problem and see if they get it then too. Especially now that there is a recall it seems like there's nothing to lose even with the "you can't unsee it" consequences...

I only see it with the gsync demo at LOW FPS ... Even with arma III I am above 60 fps so it is fine for me. Most of my games I play currently run 75-100 fps so I do not see it in gaming. I only see the scanline if I run that demo and it is operating at low FPS

BTW, this is probably common sense but I wanted to confirm... Just talked with NewEgg chat and they said no problem to get a refund on the extended warranty when I return the monitor.

Man I don't know. I sent a PM to ACER Cory about Advanced RMAs. Of course they would put a 1300+ hold on your card but I really don't want to be without a monitor for 2 weeks. Even using a 4k @ 60hz is such a downgrade from this.

If they do advanced RMAs I will keep it because I don't have any of these issues with my brightness set at 50%. No scan lines, no coil whine, 5% backlight bleed at most so I feel like I have more to lose by returning it than keeping it. I'm just afraid it will hurt the monitors life.

Conclusion:
If they will do advanced RMAs I will keep it and just take the holding charge on my CC while they send me a new one.

If the only option is to send it in at my own expense and be out a monitor for 2 weeks, its going back to newegg for a full refund. reluctantly...just on principal.

Its not as widespread as some would suggest, of this I'm sure.


Uhm, a good theory! But how would that actually work, they are supposed to all be the same?


Maybe I should hang on anyway. I bet I would not notice anything faulty, coming from a 15.6" 60Hz IPS laptop tongue.gifrolleyes.gif


Because, before I heard of this scanlines (which I still don't really get what it is) I only seen good stuff with V2 and it's a keeper.

BTW I wont know until he PMs me back. (however long that takes) I put in the title its time sensitive because I'm sure he's getting flooded with PMs about this crap.

I believe the pendulum demo is just a example. You can download this test and use it on a non gsync monitor and get the same results as a gsync monitor checking the same boxes and settings the same. So I don't believe the pendulum test to be valid for anything but visuals and and example of HOW Gsync can work.

I haven't found ANYTHING that confirms that gsync is actually working besides if the MNT status LED is on (acer) or red gsync ring is on (asus).

It even goes beyond that. What seemed like a very bad release schedule for Asus (because Acer would steal the sales by releasing before) might become an amazing R&D and marketing move.

Asus was probably aware of the panel problems since it's the same one for their PG348Q. By letting Acer rush it out and having to deal with all these issues (with 2 call back for firmware/hardware updates in less than 2 months, I think we can safely say it's not a really smooth release), Asus is monitoring a free benchmark at the expense of a competitor. Even better, they will probably fix the issues before releasing the product and put emphasis on how their product is more stable and a better experience than with Acer.

That's pretty brilliant if you ask me.
