Regarding the scanline image linked - maybe I'm getting too old, but I don't see there difference between the two pictures? Can someone MS Paint some guidelines on what to look for and detail the pattern?

I'm that guy that needs a visual aid and a line of text where I can reference to redface.gif

Thank you in advance

With G-sync on, there are pronounced dark horizontal lines in the blue background versus none with G-sync off

Update on mine since I have had it - obtained in November 2015

Build: Sept
BLB: Minor bottom left corner - and sliver top left - not noticeable in regular use
Overclock: 100 Hz
Coil Whine: None
Scanlines: None - I have run the pend demo multiple times and playing games since November like Witcher 3, Star wars battlefront, Star Craft and Fallout 4 I have never seen any.
Whites: Fantastic, love web browsing on this. The PG279Q's I tired had terrible whites and why I sent them back.
Dead Pixels: I have 3 very minor dead pixels. I never notice these unless I go full white screen and look hard for them, luckily they are in the top left corner -2 and one top right and so small they are even hard to see in full white screen looking right at them - all black in color.

I am extremely happy with my X34. Right now with a fairly maxed out Maingear system running 2 GTX 980 Ti's Fallout 4 in complete max settings runs seamless at 100fps constantly. I was very impressed with this. Witcher 3 is less optimal and generally ran around 75-85 fps - this is due to the game more than anything, of course turning down settings a little would max it out, but part of the joy is playing these games maxed out in full 21:9 glory.

From all the reviews I have read with just about any new gaming monitor you may need to go through a few to find a good one. I never did get a good Asus PG279Q. If you get a good one of the x34's you wont be disappointed if you have the gaming system to support it.

Good luck!

Its kind of funny that there was so much negativity in this thread, people saying that they were all junk etc
Now the happy people have had a ton of pages of excellent reviews.

I can either go out today and buy this knowing the MFG and have an in store 7 day bright pixel exchange warranty free.

Or I can wait 20 painful days for the PG348Q.


From what I have read they are either the same or the Asus is better. Can someone give me the benefits of the Dec2016 Acer model over the Asus?

Im a little late to your question but....

Far Cry 4
Just Cause 3
modded (4GB HD Texture Packs) Fallout New Vegas
The Witcher 3
War Thunder

A short summary of my X34 ownership experience:
+Got it from very first Newegg pre-order batch.
+no dead pixels
+same BLB bleed/IPS glow that my curved LG 34" (which uses the exact same panel as the X34) had, i.e. normal for a big IPS panel
+OC's to 100 hz no problem
+no coil whine
+no scan lines but I did NOT run any g-sync demo
-suffers from wake from sleep bug, though I have sleep mode disabled anyway

Summary:
Great monitor for gaming / productivity but Acer should have had tighter QC on the early batches.

The Acer has gamma adjustment while the Asus does not. Apart from that they are basically the same, Asus has a better OSD and swivel adjustment on the stand.

No gamma control is a strange omission on a $1300 monitor and quite fusturating if you plan on calibrating it, so for me, I wouldn't get the Asus based on that alone.

I usually adjust the gamma in windows or reshade but what about the osd are all the features the same? The srgb, scene mode and blue light filter?

What about blb?

I don't know if the presets are the same, some are named differently. It does have a blue light filter.

Blb is no better on the Asus from the pics I've seen.

So I am going through youtube videos instead of sleeping for my important doctors apointment tomorrow lol, I could otherwise watch videos all night rather than ask these questions:

So I saw blue banding got resolved.

There is flickering with Gsync. Was this resolved?

Here is a good review and test

I dont see whats wrong with the OSD functions in comparison, the different game modes are just a gimmick, you can always use reshade instead.

Only thing its missing is ULMB it seems.
