I pretty much play everything, but mostly witcher 3/ far cry type

Can you describe issues you had with the panel? Well, if you ever try 144Hz you can't go back to 60Hz. However, 100Hz could be good compromise. I can live with that until it has G-sync. 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.

Heh, I can't stand 1080p anymore smile.gif Nevertheless, I've ordered another PG279Q from different retailer so I will see. Wish me a luck but now I'm much more sceptic than last time...

Did you see that video of mine concerning that yellow ting at the top ? Did you have it also that horrible ? Please say no smile.gif

Yes, I'm coming from 60 hz TN. So haven't really seen 144hz. The X34 was fantastic, but for that price I got nervous once ACER told retailers to ship their stock back. Debating getting the PG279q, waiting for the PG348, or going back to the X34 once it's been out for awhile. #1stworldproblems.

As you wish- NO! biggrin.gif

But seriously- no. As I said I didn't see any yellow tint in it. Top was just little little darker white than bottom and middle. But it had no tint to it, just darker pure white.

Of course I wish you luck, wish me too ^^. Maybe it will help. Also some voodo or dark magic and celtic rituals!

Becasue in Asus QC I have absolute ZERO faith now smile.gif.

Fantastic, you gave me a hope smile.gif Darker is pretty normal with all screen as uniformity is never 100%. The best I could see is around 10%. But yellow tint is unforgivable.

There is always faith. Your was perfect at first, unfortunately developed a bleed. This was a damn bad luck. If not, it would be a keeper, am I right?I'm curious how manufacturing date will be on mine... They got 3 pieces and sold within 15 mins. Wonder how many return back to their page as opened. But hope none of them. Good luck mate.

You are right if not for this bleeding spot- it would be keeper. My supploer site has new batch date for 10-11-2015! So tomorrow! Already wrote to them if I will get replacement from this new batch! Would be nice because that would mean I will get it this week!

I think you will get October one on 95%. You got bad luck with purchasing still sitting September one. Now if store got new batch they will be all at least October.

Hopefully man, hopefully. Otherwise I will have 3 monitors ready to return smile.gif But I've already bought a 50m role of a wrapping paper biggrin.gif

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!
