I'll do you even more an extreme comparison (note, this is about a year ago and of course before I got the X34):

I went from the 60 hz curved LG 34" (3440 x 1440) to the 144 hz Asus ROG Swift (27")

I lasted 2 days on the ROG swift and sold it on eBay.

Even going from 60 hz to 144 hz was a serious downgrade because of the flat 27" 2560 x 1440 vs curved 34" 3440 x 1440.

I cant imagine anyone here would prefer a flat 27" 2560 x 1440 over the X34

Edit:

It should be noted that I dont play competitive on-line FPS games however I did prefer Far Cry 4 much more on the 34" 60 hz LG vs the 27" 144hz Swift because of the IPS colors and wide screen real-estate.

I'm in the same boat as most. No real problems just bleed. My ocd takes over and once I see it I can't unsee. I end up concentrating on the corner more than the game.

That's a problem with me, just hoping fallout doesn't have real dark areas like witcher 3. I can never go back though and the fact they were pulled from retailers sucks. I was literally going to play the lottery and swap it at microcenter this weekend.

Also I was over on the Acer boards and its does seem this is blown out of proportion a tad. There was no banner exclaiming a global recall or any post of the sort. They are just saving face by offering free shipping and high turnaround for those who choose to partake in the "fix".

Thanks for your input.

After all this talk I decided to do some more testing. I opened up W3 and messed around with the OD settings.. set to Off, Normal, and Extreme and didn't notice any of the scanlines people are experiencing. I keep my OD on normal just the same, since the review I looked at on TFTreviews mentioned that was the best setting to avoid overshoot.

Overall I don't find the motion blur any worse than my previous Qnix monitor which also ran at 100hz. I'm sure there are other monitors that beat the X34 in motion blur, for sure there are.. but its certainly not ba enough to me. Playing fast games like UT will likely not be as ideal, but oh well. Everything else looks and plays awesome, so I'm very happy.

BLB for me is only noticable when the corners are super dark, which doesn't happen too often. Overall, I would say I actually notice it a couple times a week for but a moment. Its negligable in my usage.

A friend of mine just received his X34 (from Amazon France) and it there's really good color uniformity and absolutely no bleeding, we instantly noticed scanlines in Arkham Knight, confirmed with Pendulum Gsync Demo.

It's even more noticeable than on my own X34 and scanlines are all over the screen, not only the left half side.

Running higher FPS games makes these scanlines a lot harder to notice but as soon as FPS drop to 85 and below, scanlines destroy image quality.

Manufacture date is September.

(will post some screens soon)

Exactly my problem!

Yikes! That sounds awful. What GPU(s) is your friend running? Dual 980 Tis here, i've tried hard to see scan lines but never seem to have a problem, and i've also run the pendulum demo. I've had scan line issues on monitors previous to the X34, so I know i'm definitely not missing them on mine. Definitely curious of what your pics will look like.

He has a single Titan X.

I personally have 2 980ti and also do have scanlines on my X34 (October, from Alternate.de).

I guess you're thinking about PG278Q which was vastly affected by vertical scanlines.
I remember the first one I owned was perfect but when it suddenly died, the replacement I got from Asus had vertical scanlines.

Honestly this is a major issue and I could easily trade 3-4 dead pixel for a scanlines free panel.

Maybe it's time to start a poll to see how many users do have scanlines on their own X34, especially when FPS are around 40-70.

Thanks to the scanlines I think at this point I'm returning it as faulty for a refund, I have given Acer enough time to say whether they are aware and have a fix but sadly they haven't. My X34 is a perfect screen ruined by the scanlines problem. I'd like to add that although the scanlines reduce at 100FPS, (at least for me) they are still visible, just slightly less obnoxious.

I would return your X34 then, as I definitely do not have that problem.

I've tested over and over since I got it two weeks ago with the Pendulum demo. No problems aside from minimal backlight bleed on upper left that starts to get pronounced at anything higher than 45 brightness (I use 35 brightness as that is calibrated at 120cd/m2).

I had scan lines on a PG278Q and a 34UM95 and am very familiar with the issue. None to report so far though with the X34.

I have a feeling a lot of people haven't actually gone to the ACER forums to read exactly what their rep said.







I don't care to debate semantics such as what constitutes a "recall". Make of it what you will.

If I got a monitor with just WFS and no scanlines even at low FPS, I'd keep it.

If the WFS is a hardware fault that affects the life of the monitor, then so be it. We have three years warranty.
