ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 3

post #21 of 3061
FYI:

Ive had my x34 for 6 days now. And after 6 days of heavy use (gaming), the IPS glow and/or BLB (whatever it is) has improved. I didnt do the hair dryer method in the other thread since I didnt think the glow/bleed was that bad to begin with, but it has improved a bit after "burn in" time.

I can echo this. The first night I had it on was worse than last night for me (second night)

Will see how it does after a couple days- week. It does appear that it lessens the more the monitor is used.

Another thing:

When you first get the monitor, the brightness come set to 100% I believe this exaggerates the perceived glow/blb. I have mine set to 39% which is comfortable for gaming.

Awesome, good idea to create a club after so much action in news thread.
post #26 of 3061
Was thinking we can include in the 1st post some info for new folks having issues / questions.

I've seen several people bring up the following:
  • Backlight issues with sleep mode
  • 95hz, is it for lower end video cards or maybe drivers on the higher end ones having this issue, maybe its a hardware lottery?
  • Hairdryer trick to help with some BLB screens
  • Suggested color profiles / settings
  • The Nvidia Hotfix driver to fix broken G-Sync
  • A reminder to enable G-Sync
  • Detailed dimensions
  • Coil whine
  • Games that don't support 2k res, and how to get them to work if possible
  • Wallpapers for 2k

Obligatory post in the new thread. Glad that its OFFICIAL

I'm IN LOVE with mine. Its so epic..
Last night I was editing a house mix I did, over 80 minutes and the entire audio file displayed without needing to scroll in the daw I was using.. I was like :O

Haven't gamed much yet.. been to busy with other stuff lately, which is annoying as I want to use it.

No Weird sleep issues
No problem ocing to 100hz
No Color shift at 60/100
No Banding, No Flicker, No whine (Tested with all white/black background)
Suffering some BLB, but I knew I would. its not terrible though.

Its expensive as hell, but damn what a fine monitor.

Proud owner and member of the club



GOODS
* monitor stand is not as intrusive as expected - I've lost no more than 2 inches in distance from screen
* no dead pixel - no dust
* almost no BLB, really minimal thumb.gif
* no coil whine so @95hz .....this is the max for my GPUs
* adaptive refresh really changes the way you game !



BADS

* OSD and buttons are TERRIBLE !
* Curve range is too small, I'd like it more curved !
* Monitor rotated some degrees - left side is lower than right side





Additional info for KEPLER Nvidia GPU Owners

results of my testings
1) configuration
2x GTX 670 SLI + Gsync on
X34 OCed to 95 hz (maximum for Kepler GPUs)

2) game testing / drivers
read the following line as
[Nvidia Driver] - [Max Desktop refresh] - Max FPS [Tomb Raider Underworld] - [DragonAge Origins] - [Starcraft 2 HotS] - [Witcher 3]

337.50 - 60 hz - 60 - 60 - 60 - 24
353.06 - 95 hz - 85 - 63 - 95 - 33
353.62 - 95 hz - 95 - 63 - 95 - 45 --> Best drivers
355.98 - 95 hz - 8 - 8 - 8 - 8 (A)
358.59* -95 hz - 8 - 8 - 8 - 8 (A)

* - HotFix version

(A)
disabling SLI restore FPS to normal for a single card

Loving mine.

- No coil whine
- No issues getting up to 100Hz
- No black blur issues
- No banding issues
- Not a lot of Backlight Bleed and minimal IPS glow.

Only issues I have had is when I turn on the monitor after it has been off a while, there is a crackling sound like there is static electricity or something with the speakers for about 5 seconds and then it is gone. Audio is turned off on the drivers and no wire connects to the speakers so I'm not sure what this is.

Other issue is the inability to use G-sync with WINDOWED mode selected. I don't get the 100Hz then.

Otherwise it is a solid monitor.

Another super happy owner here. It's easily the best monitor I've ever owned.

RGB 48,48,51
Brightness 34
Contrast 50



Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





The colors and crispness make my ROG Swift look like trash. It is a little less "silky" than the Swift in motion.

Diablo 3 can only be played at 3440x1440 in Windowed Fullscreen mode, which makes GSYNC not work, and results in the game being very jittery. Alternatively you can play it in 2560x1440 21:9, with GSYNC but the image is stretched. Funny considering early images of this monitor had the D3 ROS image on them. smile.gif

I'm finding plenty of games, like GTA V, that don't resize or re-fit the HUD. The game works well in 21:9 otherwise, and the 16:9 HUD is easy to get used to.

The TFT icc. profile was gross. Made my blacks reddish.

No big issues other than some coil whine at 100hz, which is only audible with my ear against the bottom of the screen, and even then it's quiet. I hear nothing otherwise. My particular unit has some IPS glow on the bottom right corner, and some BLB along the top, but only really noticeable on the upper left corner. It's slightly annoying when fixating on it, but when doing any gaming/movie watching I don't notice it.

The only real problem I'm having is my two bottom corners are noticeably darker than the rest of the screen. Like shaded. It's really bothering me more than any BLB, and I'm hoping a hairdryer will fix it. I'm sure Acer wouldn't honor an RMA for that (if anyone has experience with this, please let me know.).
