Acer's product page says "boost up" with everything that expression could mean to them.

http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/predator-x34-series

Anyway, Acer's today position is that they won't exchange a monitor if yours is affected by horizontal lines when they occur at +60hz.

Is Asus PG348Q advertised 75 or 100hz?
Release date is still Q1 2016?

To me that says, "Any issues beyond 60hz are your own to deal with" which is worrying.

The x34 is natively 60hz OCed to 100hz. The ASUS will be using a 75hz panel OCed to 100hz, but I could see ASUS covering any issues with it not OCing properly like they would with a Swift. I'm surprised on Acer's stance on it considering their statements prior to launch.

They're looking at an early December release (if they don't want to miss the holiday rush) possibly with an announcement in the next week or two.

Yeah, early December makes more sense for a release, I keep in contact with JJ, so if I find out any news, I will put it on here

This ^. Regardless, no one is buying this monitor just to play at 60 hz. Hopefully the ACER France guy is mistaken and a fix planned. Might have to come out of the US though, that's how the WFS issue was addressed.

It's probably support reading this line in the manual: "10. Overclock: X34 can be overclocked (at the end user's risk) to a higher refresh rate than advertised by the panel specification"

But the 'than advertised' means you can argue that it's advertised as 100hz anyway.

That could be one scenario or the other could be that there is no fix and you cannot RMA the monitor for the line issue.

It's a "feature" ?

I'm in the market for a new monitor but this tread is making me want to wait a couple of months. :'( All a brotha wants is a gpu monitor combo that can do 144hz and is 30" or bigger. My current monitor is 30" and I can't go smaller...

I was told that "scanlines" will not be taken in consideration, the panel is rated for 60hz, nothing more, they said. (and yes I know this is right)

Since Acer won't consider any deffect when panel is working above 60hz, what will happen if faint scanlines become more and more noticeable with time (?)

First off, that's just absurd if they've said that to you, nothing covered above 60Hz, absolutely insane! Plus Acer have told the retailer OCUK in the UK something quite different regards the OC'ing of the monitor and the 100Hz capability (as was relayed on the OCUK forums by staff in direct contact with them), so they need to get their position clear on this, if you indeed spoke to Acer directly. Very mixed messages being sent out. Furthermore, I've no idea what the legalities are in France, but the way this monitor has been advertised in the UK, both by Acer and retailers, would make what they've said to you very much in breach of Consumer Rights and Sales of Goods Act, if that's what they are telling UK consumers.

Where are you getting that from? They will be using the same 60Hz native panel. There is no native 75Hz native panel of this type in existence.

Sorry that was my error after reading this: http://www.144hzmonitors.com/monitors/asus-pg348q-34-inch-ultrawide-1440p-ips-gaming-monitor/

It says the PG348Q will be clocked at 75hz, but what I missed is that it said it would do so just like the x34 and be overclockable to 100hz as well.

While this monitor is 34'', it is a 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio so it is less tall than a 30'' 16:9 but a bit wider. You can see a comparison here: http://www.displaywars.com/30-inch-16x9-vs-34-inch-21x9

 

In the end it also all depends If you want more vertical space or horizontal space.
