Thanks for posting the picture mate. Oh man that Looks a lot like the ASUS PG279Q I just sent back for BLB / glow

Can you record a video for me then take a screen shot from the video? That should give you a picture with 'true to life' amounts of BLB / glow. It's always much worse on a picture

The latest 358.87 drivers fix the issues I was originally having with this monitor and Diablo 3.

Now G-SYNC works properly under windowed full screen, allowing the game to be played in 3440x1440 21:9 with G-SYNC. Even v-sync wasn't working in windowed before, but is now... Glory. The game is still limited to 2560x1440 16:9 in exclusive full screen, but that will likely never change and of course would be up to Blizz.

Another long session with Watch Dogs tonight... just waiting on Fallout 4, really... and I cannot say enough about this monitor. Just an unbelievable experience. I never would have believed that Watch Dogs could run this well, utterly maxed out, at 3440x1440.

I mean, It's like I have an entirely new computer, with brand new next gen GPUs.

This is one of the most significant upgrades I've ever experienced. It's right up there with my first VGA monitor, my first sound card, my first CD ROM drive, my first Voodoo 3D graphics card, and my first 16:9 IPS panel.

Just a wonderful piece of hardware. I'm so happy.

Do any owner can film what you actully see while playing/watching movie so we can see the impact of the blb/ips glow (not shdowplay or internal software) thank you

Filming as in manually filming the screen you mean? You wouldn't see any BLB if you simply captured what was being displayed on the screen.. I'm assuming that you're not asking for that right?

I didn't record it, but I just tried watching a couple movies and honestly I couldn't even notice the bleed at all tbh. On my display I don't have it that bad, but even still, it was negligable.

I'm amazed watch dogs even works at my all let alone on that setting with this monitor lol. I bought it after release, it didn't work so turned it off and never looked back lol

Received my X34 Saturday gone and my my....... This thing is an absolute monster, the picture quality is outstanding and I'm absolutely loving the aspect ratio.

Witcher 3 and Battlefield 4 are just mind boggling, I have left Overdrive on normal and overclocked the framerate to 100hz and I don't have the whine or the mesh\scan lines some speak of.

I have been very thorough as the previous posts made me paranoid but I honestly find none of the problems bar some slight BLB & IPS glow.

The default setup of the monitor is pretty impressive too as the picture is pretty much spot on.

Overall I'm more than happy, the only gripe I have is it makes the awful textures on my PS4 that developers can hide on a TV stick out like a sore thumb!

I have a MSI 980Ti Gaming 6G with a light overclock driving my monitor and it's providing the goods up to now, I have been playing Witcher 3 and BF4.

Witcher 3 runs at 55 - 70Fps with below settings (I appreciate it's no 100FPS but GSYNC makes a HUGE difference and feels like a 100FPS to me)

3440x1440
All settings Ultra
Aliasing off
Hairworks On
Hairworks Aliasing off

DSR x4 and smoothness x15 in Nvidia control panel

I used the below guide which is really useful and the config file edits really work. ( I followed it to the letter and just skipped section 0d, the Ui horizontal tweak was not needed as I believe it's fixed by recent patches that came after the thread.)

You will also need a modded .EXE for full screen cutscenes (not sure why the game goes letterbox on cutscenes)

The latest Nvidia Gync hotfix drivers definitely had a considerable performance boost even on my single GPU.
