Shipping was high at $42 but total was still less than buying from NewEgg or Amazon. I'll update when it ships. Hoping for a good one but most recent reviews I see here and elsewhere are pretty good. Got additional warrantee protection with my Capital One card as well as price protection. thumb.gif

Yeah, I thought it was funny that it was considered a very heavy item. I decided to humor them and have it shipped to work where I have a tractor and loading dock that was requested haha.

Ovrrall I'm just happy, mine has a little bleed but any kind of color on screen and it's unnoticeable and that is like 99% of the time. A dead pixel wouod drive me more nuts. Mainly because the typical ips glow when you're sitting close covers any bleed. I love it, definitely a great investment. Anyone can have a larger screen these days, but there is something super impressive by the ratio that this screen offers at 34 inches, just an awesome purchase

Well I think they are overpriced, lack QC, lack manufacturer support, and your chances of getting one you are happy with are very low and most likely you will have to settle.

I cant tell you the hundreds of "thank you" messages Ive received on my youtube channel for letting smarter buyers see the QC issues and the way ACER has swept them under the carpet.over the last few months. smile.gif

Well the only rebuttal I have is this, I went and looked at other monitors and honestly so many still have people disliking the quality of the items. Backlight bleeding, dead pixels, all these issues seem crop up in just about every thread or review, some more than others..

For me I look at simply what makes me happy, so sure if acer is a garbage company to many people but I end up having a nice monitor, that's all I care about because every company has people ripping them. So it's really a case of simply finding the product that makes one happy.

I'd of probably tried one more if this was a bum monitor. But I'm really happy. Do I think they need to make better batches of it, absolutely from the reports, but so many monitors have bad reviews so I don't think I can go by that. Asus had their bad share of launches as well, so it's just one of those things.

Yeah, I had to mark it as ship to ground floor. Which won't be exactly as it will be a front porch. Just hope it will be delivered on a day that I am home or at least have it within an outer box.

If you are happy that's all that matters. No need to keep posting in the thread. I considered waiting for ASUS but then it will be a longer wait and very hard to get at release due to pent up demand and then wait for reviews. Also at least we know what things to check for on the ACER. In addition who knows what issues the ASUS may have. Personally I think it is wrong to buy lots of these monitors just to send them back to somehow punish a manufacturer. It would be hard to believe that one company deliberately created a bad monitor to sell to buyers. If my first one is bad I'll get an RMA and if the second is bad then I'll get a refund and wait for ASUS.
