Maybe that's why I have never seen scan lines on my X34 during dozens of hours in Ark and Far Cry 4.....
Because I sit a normal distance from a 34" monitor and not with my nose pressed against the screen?

You have no idea how bad his lines are.

I can see it clear as day in Ark from across the room. First time trying it out tonight, neat game.

thanks for the info, I am gonna try it (although I am afraid to find the truth smile.gif )

Ahh ok. Maybe he was the guy who posted a pic from a normal digital camera, and they looked terrible. Understood if that's the case. But these guys who ONLY see it when they have their nose pressed against the glass and are running a purposely contrived g-sync demo and then send the screen back..... That I don't understand.

But yeah if you see it while gaming, send it back absolutely.

By the way I run 2 X Ark servers. Check them out if you're bored:
85.190.152.96:29000
Ark Pooping Evolved: 7xGather/5xExp/Fast-tame. PvP: ON

And
85.131.185.93:27015
Ark Pooping Evolved German Edition! 3xTame4xExp5xGather.PvP: -On.

The 2nd server is really new and doesn't have many players yet.

Totally agree man, if it takes the face being up close to the screen to see them it's sort of a non-issue. That's how it started with me, but I don't know if the lines got worse, or if I've become more aware of them. I feel like they've gotten worse, as they initially didn't seem that bad, and I certainly didn't see them on my desktop. Not saying they'll all get worse. I'd think they'd get worse quickly if at all. I don't know how bad his lines are either, so he could very well be in either camp.

And thanks! I will definitely check out your servers whenever the dx 12 patch lands, providing they actually get sli working.

The DX 12 patch is due this month. And yeah SLI still doesn't work.

But it's not the kind of game where framerate really matters. You can play it at 30 fps and it's fine.

If you can notice your scan lines from across the room then definitely send it back.

I just played a few hours of AC Unity and didn't spot them once. If I sit forward in my chair (really unnaturally close to the screen) I can spot them in the clouds, or other plain textures like the sky, if it's anything with any real pattern like stone or most other textures I can't see it. With those I could see in the sky I tried spotting them up close, and then sitting back into my usual sitting position and I couldn't see them while keeping my eyes fixed on the same place.

Obviously I'll react to info as and when it comes, but for now I'm fairly certain I'll keep it.

No offense taken, because I fully agree with you. I only saw those scanlines after people have written about it here and when I get very close to the screen.

Since I wall mounted my monitor, my normal viewing position is 30-40" away from the screen, at which I'm already unable to discern those lines. And as long as no lines show up when I'm doing desktop work, I'm fine.

As I already have stated in previous posts: in my opinion, if you're already willing to accept the backlight bleed near the top edge and the inherent IPS glow of the panel, you shouldn't really have any reason at all to complain about those faint lines unless you're LOOKING for reasons to justify your buyer's remorse.

To be honest, my LG 34uc97-P that I was gaming with a good couple of years had exactly the same BLB/Ips glow that the x34 does and i didn't even notice it.

Ips glow is something you accept when you buy a 34" IPS panel. But the scan lines would be a deal breaker if I could see them in normal gaming or desktop use.

That sucks that some users are seeing them.

The BLB on my 34UC97 is waaay worse than my X34. I'm incredibly happy with the BLB on my X34 it's very minimal.
