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.

Yeah it seems like overall its pretty tough to notice, but that's also based on user.. some people are more sensitive to it, and some have it worse than others. I've read some people only see it in spots of the screen when they have certain things enabled, like overdrive. Others have it over the entire screen when their FPS is low.

Not really meaningful until such time as Acer acknowledges it.. IF they acknowledge it. though, if it were me, I'd certainly be sending them all the proof they'd need to see its a real issue.

Well I wouldn't go that far about acer taking notes. Their PG279 lauch is ALMOST just as bad as the x34. They didn't take any notes from the rog swift. They just put 21 more HZ on the SAME panel with a new shell. Asus and acer are horrible but there just aren't any choices now.

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

It might fall under the adage that people generally don't go online to write about stuff when it works correctly, but they sure do when it doesn't.

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.

Uhhhh I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Its technology. Monitors will be released and there will be issues. Asus will release monitors to consumers that have backlight bleed, that have dead pixels, and that slip past quality control. You're not wrong in suggesting that Asus is likely watching the x34 release VERY closely, but to expect them to release their product without their own set of glaring issues is naive imo.

no doubt about it.. always the case, which is why issues become these broad sweeping problems with a product when it fact they are anything but.

About the prices...

They are dropping VERY hard here in Scandinavia!

In Norway you can get the X34 for 1100 usd, but they only ship within Norway or for pickup in their stores...

And in Sweden several stores has big coupons for this monitor, from 1490 USD now down to 1320 USD with coupon.

Just realised how overpriced Sweden is, even when the USD is insanely strong....

No a surprise but just confirming that my new shorter DP cable makes no difference at all.

I have contributed a lot to this thread and many others on this website.

What I cannot understand is how ACER could release this monitor with all these issues.

And again.. you actually believe that other monitors and manufacturers are so much better, you are kidding yourself. Of course the monitor was rushed since Acer wanted to be first on the scene with the specs on the X34, and they are. Sure, there will be issues when you release a new product a large amount of the time.. this is not isolated to Acer only.. I mean really, is that what you think?

What you also are ignoring is the fact that many users don't have any issues.. I'm one of them. More people will voice their concerns than not with a new product.. Many people out there don't participate on forums like this one and are happily enjoying their displays. You make it seem as if everyone has problems with it, which is utterly untrue.

All you're doing is throwing dirt and you don't need to be. Its senseless and serves no-one other than yourself.

You could also say, there could be many people with issues that do not use forums, do not just assume that because they are not on here, they do not have problems.
