I don't think refurbished has the same warranty.

This monitor is really awesome.

It a shame I had to send it back to acer today. I had the half lit screen problem.

By the way, did anyone encountered a screen ratio problem with the hdmi ?

I use the hdmi to plug gaming consoles, and while using the "aspect mode" in the osd, the 16/9 ratio is not conserved.

it's about 15% larger than it should be in 1080p and it's full screen in 720p! Needless to say it's hideous. No problem in 1:1 mode though.

It's not how it's supposed to work right ?

I'm also having a good experience. January model.

No scan lines that I can see.
No coil whine.
I can see a little glow in dark scenes such as The Witcher but not bad at all.
Overclocks to 100 no flickering in desktop or games.

Would you share the contrast and brightness settings that you are using. I'm getting a Spyder 5 express to color correct the screen but I have learned it will not set the brightness. Overall I'm very surprised to see colors I did not see in my old Viewsonic 1080p. It is like re-experiencing games because the Viewsonic apparently was dimming badly.

Giving the history of this monitor, I think it is absolutely absurd to grab a refurbished one lol.
Its your money though. Just hope you didn't get a 4 month rental for 700 bucks.

I'm looking to SLI my 980, I think it will hold out?

I'm using 2X GTX 970's and running games just fine, some games I have to cap the fps to under 100fps to make sure it does not go above the G-sync threshold of this monitor, I'd say just a single gtx 980 would be enough to have a good gaming experience, including the most resent games, g-sync helps big time.

Another data point for you guys. Received mine last week from Newegg. Finally got to play around with it this weekend. No issues so far (fingers crossed) so I guess I won the lottery biggrin.gif
