Haha I was gonna say something... but... I don't know if I have the heart...

It's like when you see something political on facebook and your like thinking "i should comment and then they will see... wait just keep scrolling... good choice"

Not the same thing, but you know what I mean.

Techenthused73... just enjoy it, great monitor! thumb.gif

I know these questions have been answered but there are 112 pages to look through and this is the first g-sync monitor I've had. Currently with a 60hz 1920x1080p viewsonic. Also my Accell dp cable won't arrive till 2-9 but I have a cable that was supposed to be an Accell but there was a mixup with part numbers from the 3rd party seller on Amazon and the cable is a coxoc dell but it has the dp logo stamped into the connector. Looks solid but not sure if I will have cable issues getting to 100hz. Which is me getting ahead of myself until I can setup the monitor.

Thanks for everyone contributing to these threads. Otherwise I would not have been able to make an informed choice.thumb.gif

As has been said, just connect it up with the supplied DP cable if it will reach, turn it on, then go into the menu and tweak it.

If your running windows 10 it will likely put the display driver in for you, did with mine anyway.

For settings, its worth looking thru the TFTCentral review as their settings aren't bad, mainly lowering brightness heaps. Then going into the overclock menu enabling it and setting it to 100hz and applying it. It will reboot and then you can see if its stable in games.

Gsync will be enabled by default in the Nvidia Control panel, but if the screen flashes black in games, then your particular panel can't handle 100hz. Its unlikely a better cable will help but you can try when your other one arrives. If it does flash/ flicker black, then go into overclock and set to 95hz and you should be right.

Mine is fine in windows at 100hz but I use 95hz as its not stable in games. TBH most of the games I play would average 60-75fps anyway so its no big deal to me.

Thank you. Yes if this was a standard monitor I would not have a concern. Also I have never experienced a G-sync monitor. However with a g-sync module that is controlled/works with the graphics card I was treating the install like a graphics card because of the driver interaction with the monitor. I felt I had a valid concern with the cable as I have read that bad cables can cause an issue with monitors not reaching 144hz on the xb271hu or flickering. Also saw that someone had an x34 that would blank out at 100hz but when they used the Accell there was no problem. I caught up on all of this reading reviews of display port cables on Amazon.com. Apparently the Cable Matters dp cables do not work well with higher refresh. I do not think the included cable will reach and will be using an Accell cable. Turns out the shipping date was changed to Monday so I will have the highly rated Accell ultra av dp cable 2 meters.

I am sure that my post may make me look like a dufus but I explained my reasons.

So, this is Acer's comment on the scanlines issue (posted by Acer-Cory):

Quote:
All,
 
In regards to the scanline issue, I have been provided with an update. Scanlines are an effect caused by rapidly changing refresh rate. Variations in the refresh rate create an increased holding time that results in the accumulation of an electrical charge. When this charge is released, it causes small variations in the frame that result in faint horizontal lines.
 
We certainly appreciate everyone’s patience and the feedback that has been provided by many of you. Unfortunately, this is a side effect for cutting edge technology and while there is not a fix to be applied, we will continue to make efforts to minimize and eliminate these types of limitations in future releases.
 
Thanks,
Cory

It nice of them that they have wrote it but sorry I just can't biggrin.gif..... "cutting-edge technology"- years old LG panel that we manged to overclocked (not in stable way) to 100Hz with attached G-Sync module. On side note- it is not always 100Hz as it is not 100 Hz panel.

Please biggrin.gif, cutting-edge my azz.

Well, at least now everybody know that it can't be avoided.

Note the use of "side effect" instead of "deffect" as Acer can exclude scanlines from warranty terms.
This is also the statement that all X34 are potentially affected and we should expect the same for Asus PG348Q.
Asus even mentions the term of "side effects" at the end of the user manual (without specifying what we should expect with "side effects", so it could be anything occuring once display is overclocked).

At this price point, this is unacceptable as using these monitors past 60hz is useless considering these scanlines can degrade game experience. Also there are numerous people starting to get / see scanlines after a few months of use, probably because of the panel degradation when running at high frequency for some time.

Considering these problems, Acer X34 is nothing but a standard LG 34UC97 + Gsync and should never been sold 500-600€ more since overclock results in such defects.

I'm afraid we have to wait a long time before a real UWQHD 100hz+/ Gsync monitor comes out. AU Optronics is planning to release a VA Panel later this year so it should be ready for next year with DP 1.3 compliant GPU's.

It's good they released a statement on the issue, should have been done much sooner but still.

Seems nearly all gaming displays out have issues that the manufactures consider "normal", you either have to accept some of them or don't buy anything at all. The scanline issue on the X34 is far less annoying than the poor uniformity I experienced on AUO 144Hz panels. I still have not seen it in actual games, only the G-Sync demo, and it hasn't gotten worse. I use my display for around 10-12 hours a day, had it for over 2 months now. So the talk of the OC degrading the panel hasn't been true in my case, so far anyway.

Given the Z35 (again, AUO) has terrible uniformity also I expect the DP 1.3 variants to have the same issue. AUO panel quality is just not up to the level of LG or Samsung.

Samsung's 100 Hz ultrawide could be interesting, but probably FreeSync only unless other manufactures buy the panel and make a G-Sync variant.

Just want to know, as anyone had any problems with scan lines being more obvious or overclock getting lower over time?
