I noticed something else why dont you get full ratio screen the upper border of the screen stops at 1 cm before the bezel i:thumbsdows it not possible to make this full screen?
post #3044 of 4149
Most likely the screen has a black border to create a gap between reflections off the inner bezel.

I would also say try turning down the brightness for corner glow issues......it should only be between 20-40% for optimal brightness between day and night.

That's how a lot of them are assembled. It's just how they are made.
My XL2720Z looks like this.
Many people's XL2420Z's look like this.

I purchased this yesterday from Amazon for 719 dollars. On advice of another poster here I picked Amazon as seller even though it stated it was a preorder and would take one to two months in stock. Stock history shows they get stock about every day to two days as stock comes in.


I ordered this way to vastly increase odds I'd get the newest builds.

It came in stock latter that night and is now shipping. I will report back on quality.

I've been running on a cheap 720p hdtv I got from Walmart on a Black Friday 3 years ago, so this should be a little bit of an upgrade for me. Haven't used a proper moniter since original Crysis was out actually. Also picked up a 980 gtx ti oc acx b stock from evga for 545 dollars to replace my 570 gtx.

I bought one today from amazon. It seems they get 20 or so every few days.
They run out of stock in an hour or so lol.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on one since I found out the X34 will be 1600 us and the X34 will be 1200.

Hopefully this acer is the 120 ulmb newer model with no problems.. luckily it is amazon.

Hi, just got this monitor today and the G-Sync is fantastic. Arkham Knight doesn't make me feel sick any more.
It came with 3 dead pixels in the corner edges, which I can't even find unless I look on a light background.
And only slight yellow glow from the bottom right corner on dark scenes, which is where I look the least on the screen.
So I guess looked out compared to some posts on here considering it's a refurbish.

I have a question about the screen brightness. I used TFT's calibration settings & ICC Profile. Looks nice.
But I need to put my Brightness to 70% or higher to enjoy the image. That's almost 3x the number people recommend.
Is it just bad eyesight or something? Does anyone have trouble sticking to the 25% suggested?

70% should be eye burning bright. If you have eyes that bad, it's actually even worse for your eyes to be staring at things that bright for long periods of time, daily.

55% for day viewing max, 24-45% in general.

Hmm, I can put it at 60% and that's fine. But lower and the screen is genuinely dim. Noticeably darker than say a phone screen at 50%.
