Iv found that it was my display port. I got a 15 foot dp cable from mono price. Its a heavy duty cable very heavy. I found that it pulls the cord to one side of mk video card and causes the screen to flicker, loose connection and such. Went back to the cable it came with. Going to try the new cable again and see if i can get it to not pull to the side as much.. I got it for cable management. Gotta have that.


One other thing I noticed is that having gsync on vs off, is with it on my fps are lower then when its off. Anyone else have that too? Is it supposed to?? Never herd of it doing that before.

Just settled on a pretty much perfect X34 from the refurbished site after trying the ASUS PG34Q. The ASUS had crap for features (no USB charge when monitor off, LED only on the stand which I don't use), and also had scanlines at 100hz. Very happy with the X34. This one is a March 2016 build, runs at 100hz flawlessly, no scanlines.

One annoyance I had with it was that it was an absolute ***** to put on my Humanscale monitor arm. I had to dremel the outward "V" that sticks out on the back since it was blocking the plate from sliding into the mount arm. No idea why Acer chose to have it jut out that much.

Anyone know if it is possible to remove the "predator" start up screen? Its really annoying because it comes on every time at about 75% brightness and makes the IPS glow etc. looks 1000x worse than it does in actual use... would be nice not to have to see that every time I switch monitor on. Or any way of making it display at normal brightness? Just every time I turn monitor on I am greeted with the monitor looking the worst it possibly can, which is a black screen at almost max brightness....

So I just got my new Predator X34 with Gsync. I want to say that I am very satisfied with the monitor and I am coming from a perfect Yamakazi Catleap Q270b at 105hz.

I would like to offer some advice below that may help people with problems

"SOME" IPS glow is to be expected and totally normal with any IPS monitor that doesnt have a glass front...even some with glass (Yamakazi had ZERO)

I have ZERO scanlines with Gsync on at 100hz Gaming mode NORMAL

I use a unique DP cord

I do not use the stand

I use a tv mount to mount this monitor

Had "ONE" stuck pixel bottom left...oddly, with a microfiber cloth I tapped the monitor screen and the back of the monitor in that specific spot a bit harder than lightly and it was gone the next day (NO CLUE IF WHAT I DID WORKED)[


See Pics and good luck from here on out!

The backlight bleed on the four corners is a bit much. Or is it cos of camera exposure?
post #1936 of 3066
Its pretty accurate, but I think the pic made it look worse.
I have this thing mounted on the wall about 2.5 feet away from my chair and angled down.

I dont notice any issues at all when gaming or anything like that.


Id say its totally acceptable...and Im super picky

The bleed always looks way worse on Camera. Mine looks close to that on camera and in person while doing anything, it's noticeable at all.

I couldn't wait for the X34P and just pulled the trigger on a X34 Manufactured date March 2016. Has no dead or stuck pixel, does 100Hz fine, no coil wine, and minimal BLB definitely in the lower range.

I think the menu system sucks tongue.gif, but beyond that I am pleased.

Surprisingly I am getting away with using a single GTX 970 OC, current games I am playing such as Doom and World of Tanks are around 55-65FPS which is far better than I expected with only small in-game settings tweaks, however I will no doubt get a little more horse power in the coming months obviously being up around 100 in most games in preferable.

Nobody has any info on the splash / startup screen then? No way to either remove it or make it lower brightness?

generally I like the monitor but I don't like seeing the worst possible scenario of the monitor every time I switch it on.

Who thinks of this stuff? I mean really, does ANYONE like the splash screen or want it there? Would it not be better if it just was not there?

WHY does it come on at full brightness?... why?

Don't turn the monitor off then?
