Any pros or cons vs Acer X35?

The only online game I play personally is Killing Floor 2, but it's great in that game as long as I play it in Windowed Borderless mode. I never tried the Acer X35 so I will be unable to compare them.

Well so far Dell is my only option it seems. Cant find any Acer here in turkey. Dell costs $1000.

I've have not tried the Acer personally. I've never tried any monitor with VRR or >60Hz. But gaming/online gaming is fine with the Dell. The response times are a little faster on the Acer (check out the tft review).

Sure you're not asking about the Z35? Acer Z35 is lower res (2560x1080), higher refresh capability (144Hz overclockable to ~200 reportedly). It's a VA vs. IPS type panel.

The Dell uses the same panel as the Acer XR341CK (freesync) and Predator X34 (Gsync) versions, but has neither. Among the Acers the Freesync tops at 75Hz while the Gsync version supposedly handles 100Hz.

Dell is reportedly calibrated out of the box, excellent color etc. per tftcentral and others, but much higher input lag.

Dell has a nifty effective built-in "KVM" capability with dual upstream USB connectivity. Not sure how quick it is to access thru the menu though.

The Acers all are VESA-mountable (the XR341CK had the mount plate in the box, I don't know about the Gsync X34, and did read in a review for the Z35 that you could get to a 100x100 pattern by removing plastic around the mount, although it wasn't entirely clear that was an 'approved' mod).

I have the Acer (XR341CK) and bought a 2-up/4-down USB 'switch' to behave as my "KVM", minus the V, between two computers. Haven't checked again recently but at the time I was looking at full KVMs none of them supported 3440x1440x60hz type resolutions, which of course requires displayport or extremely recent HDMI. I just kept a small separate panel for the 2nd computer's monitor (it's the controller for my 3d printer, not used as often as the gaming beast).

I'm aware as the Acer has an IPS panel I'm supposed to hate it for glow. But I'm too busy enjoying it to notice. Maybe because I was coming off a truly ancient 1600x1200 non-LED-backlit LCD that was always kind of soft with a fair amount of latency/trailing visible.

Mostly a FPS shooter player but not online - more story line. Or open/semiopen 3rd person games (Witcher 3 is current addiction, I'm letting all my GalPowers status totally expire in E:D lately....)

The Dell was on sale again at Newegg recently for $700ish. I have no idea how prices run for those outside the states though.

EDIT - one other difference I forgot that may not matter much to you. The Z35 has an external power brick (my XR341CK does too, presumably ditto on the Predator X34). The Dell doesn't - all power conversion is internal. Certainly a nicer arrangement, if that is a discriminator for you.

I have bought the LG97 curved but for my photoshop and other design work / web development the curve is really not nice.

Does anyone have experience with any flat one?

Not nice? How so? I use Photoshop, Quickbooks, Access, MySQL and some basic video editing in premiere and they all look fantastic to me. Are you running into problems?

I agree as well! I've had a wonderful experience with PS and web design on my 34UC97.

Well lines are not straight so its hard to work, especially if clients come at the office to show them something.

Otherwise I really love it but its a big minus frown.gif

I don't get that either. I do CAD work on mine before tossing it over to the other system for the 3D printer. I have zero issue interpreting the 'curvature' - it's very subtle.

Now the newly revealed (at CES) Acer XR342CK, with like 1900mm vs. 3800mm curvature....might cause issues. ;-)

Sounds like you need the monitor better oriented for your seated height and working distance. Maybe you're tilting it up/down too much, which exaggerates the appearance of the curvature?

p.s. seen that there's some 37ish inch 32:9 monitor panels coming out soon? Don't tell whats-his-name that poops all over ultrawide as a failed experiment. Head might asplode wink.gif

Does anyone have any of these 34" monitors wall or desk mounted? I'm looking to mount mine and need a decently priced one.

I've got the LG 34uc97. Thanks.
