G-sync is a must on >1440p screen if you don't have at least 2x980Ti and ability to maintain constant 144FPS. But you can't compare 21:9 with 16:9, depends what you want. If you want 21:9 then you have anything else to choice from now.
The main issue was what's been dubbed the wake-from-sleep, where once the monitor turns on or your awaken the computer, only half the backlight turns on. It's corrects itself once the screen changes or you touch the monitor menu screen. At the time, I only had a day or so left to get a refund from NewEgg and ACER had instructed those with the issue to contact the service center to arrange for a repair to the hardware. Pretty much all the monitors have this issue it seems.
I could have lived with it, but there was no mention if this issue would impact the lifespan of the monitor down the road, and it sounded like this might turn into a full fledged recall, so I went took the refund option. Still torn if it was the right call, but given the time constraints and limited information I don't think I would have reacted differently.
Now others are reporting scan lines with Gysnc enabled,, but not all have this issue. Check out the X34 forum for more info!
Thanks for your thoughts!
