ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 109

post #1081 of 3066
I've had mine for nearly two months now. I work from home so I use it about 10 hours a day and haven't had any issues develop from running it at 100 Hz and there are no scanlines visible in actual games. I think if these panels were at risk of degrading due to being pushed at their limit, some issues would have started cropping up by now. So I'm reasonably confident in the lifespan of this.

Honestly I was expecting to have to return this due to the overwheleming amount of problems other people had but I guess I got lucky.

This is the best monitor I've had by far, I liked my LG 34UM95 a lot but there was always a nagging thought that I should have went for the 27" IPS panels instead for high refresh, thankfully with this I get the best of both worlds. My next upgrade will be an OLED hopefully, this will tide me over until then.

Will be interesting to see how the Asus turns out but I'm definitely sticking with my X34.

Well, so much for the Predator... Ordered it on the 4th, and now the ETA on shipment is March 14th. Hopefully the folks at Provantage will let me pre-order the Asus model before it goes officially on sale.

Damn that sucks man

Side question guys, so some games I can set it to 3440x1440, but I'm still getting like 4 inch bars on left and right sides. What could I be missing here?

That's odd. I just checked mine and it states "In progress.1 item awaiting confirmation from regional warehouse"

Your order has been placed with one of our suppliers who will ship it directly to you.
Note: Your order has been forwarded to a regional warehouse for processing. We will issue an invoice once we have confirmation."

My replacement order has said this for 2 weeks now. My first order said it and shipped same day, though.

Update:

I ended up replacing my predator X34 through Amazon, There was a legit problem with the panel, the tearing is not present in the replacement. I also began having issues with the panel randomly going dark while playing.

Sadly, a lot more of these problems will arise over the next few months. The early adopters are going to get shafted when the displays start crapping out because of the overclock.

Would any of you bought the monitor if this was disclosed?

WARNING: OVERCLOCKING your overclockable monitor may result in PERMANANT DAMAGE not covered by ACER inc.

Because, this is what is going top happen and is another reason why I keep returning monitors. I want to remain within the 1 month full price return grace period when the ACER comes out. Ive actually had 2 good units out of 8 so far. The one I have now is NOV build date and its OK. Has a lot of BLB.

Why do you assume that overclocking is hard on the display? If its not overheating its fine.
The monitor only has so much voltage, just like overclocking anything with set voltage. The worst thats going to happen is it will get artifacts or just wont display that refresh rate.

Just like amy cpu, gpu etc. If you dont increase the voltage to the point where it generates too much heat, you camt hurt anything. Have you ever heard of amyone frying a gpu or cpu by overclocking without upping the voltage? Nope same goes for a monitor.

Curious how you gathered the build date on it.

Simply by a quick look to the sticker on the box or under the screen near color LEDs.

I agree with Funfordcobra and already said before that I'm not confident with the panel lifespan when overclocked beyond 75hz in the long term.
Remember what happened to those who had Qnix overclocked IPS monitors (LG panel) after 6 months. Mine lasted 7 months before the screen started to flicker + awful scanlines that disappeared once I get back to 60hz.

I already see some people getting screen flickering / multiple screen reboot in games after a month of use with no problem.

Acer X34R1CK users (Freesync) seem to not experience these problems yet.

I guess PG348Q will have the same problems, especially scanlines which is the most annoying X34's defect.
