post #2111 of 3061
Mine seems to have the darker band on a grey background as well. Very odd. Doesn't appear in any other color.

When u pay so much you'd think QC would be better.
Go to a store and check it an buy it.

Seems like most / all of the X34 monitors have the dark band at the top? Might be slightly more / less obvious on different monitors, or people are not looking properly, it is only visible on pastel / grey / light colors full screen.

So if they all have that dark band to some extent, then the only other issues are BLB, which they also seem to all have to some extent on the left of the screen, and coil whine, which apparently some do not have but again I wonder if it is people just not noticing it, I wonder if anyone really has a 100% silent X34 at 100hz.

I don't consider it a problem or a QC issue at all. It seems to be on every panel. It also only noticeable on a grey backround. Until he mentioned it and to test it I never saw it haha. It doesn't bother me at all. Very subtle and faint in person.

Ya those are first gen curved panels.
Now the new LG UC88/98 have the 2nd gen panels.

Mine has the 2nd gen Panel. It was built in May 2016. Had a buddy who works at Fry's check a 34UC98-W on display with the same windows 10 grey backround last night. Exact same thing.

nah think they're still the 1st gen.
2nd gen's have a more aggressive curve.
post #2118 of 3061
Acer X34/A = 2800R panel
Acer X34P = 1900R panel
34UC98-W = 1900R panel

If you currently own an X34, you have the first generation, less curved panel. Very disappointing to hear the 34UC98-W has the same dark stripe. Admittedly I'm not clear as to whether or not this is indeed the panel destined for the X34P.

To each their own but that's a defect/flaw in my book. I agree that it only shows up when a simple, medium-toned image is on the screen but I did notice this on mine through normal day-to-day operations. On a low or mid-range screen I'd overlook it. My living room TV has comically bad ghosting in certain situations but it was extremely inexpensive so I left it be. With an asking price of $1200, the X34 and its Asus cousin are at the upper echelon of consumer monitors so my expectations were set accordingly.

Personally I think more of a curve is worse, not a good thing... it would distort the image probably... but the native 100hz and also the significantly better backlight bleed / glow is definately a good thing... overall though not worth swapping from the X34. Maybe a 144hz samsung VA ultrawide would be worth swapping, or definately a 3440x1440 144hz OLED, but no news of anything like that. A 36" 3440x1440 144hz OLED would be the end game monitor.

I agree. From the displays I've seen that added more curve the image becomes distorted the closer you get to the corners. IPS glow also becomes more intense in the corners from the increase in curvature. I'll stick with my X34. Could care less about swivel(My desk is glass), will not like having more curve, 100hz native is nice but my display runs 100hz flawless with no hiccups.
