ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 213

post #2121 of 3066
I think all X34 have dark band at top, some bleed on left corners.

Maybe somewhere in the world, someone has an X34 with 100hz, no coil whine, no backlight bleed, no dark band, but I would say the probability of getting that is almost zero.

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.

I feel the price tag is warranted. How many other Ultra-Wide's with IPS overclock to 100hz? How many include Gsync? There's a price to pay for this type of tech and then add in there's only 2 models available. I'm cool with $1200. Being a heavy Home Theater addict it could be a lot worse trust me.

My 21:9 Dell U3415W bit the dirt today. I really enjoyed it for the short amount of time I had it but I may end up buying a replacement tonight.
I really thought about buying the X34 prior to it.

Do any of you have any regrets with this monitor? I've heard of some QC issues.
Do any of you wish you would have gone with 4K 16:9 instead? The black bars on YouTube and Netflix can be annoying at times.

Any input is appreciated.

Buy from Newegg. I ordered mine about 4 weeks ago and got one with a May 2016 build date. Had 4k 16:9 before this. This display is miles better. The extra width and 100hz/gsync make it perfect for gaming imo. Goodluck

Guys im getting a replace for my X34 due to excessive amout of IPS Glow or BLB on the left side.. im testing out the other unit again later before il replace mine tomorrow.. my question is..

i notice a dot on top most left side on the screen.. maybe a few inch away on the bezel... its kinda glossy and change in color... when i look it straight it was like that but when im in the middle i can't see it.. what is it? a stuck pixel? i know stuck pixel are fix color and dead ones are black right?

They are all going to have glow on the left side... every one will be the same... they will also all have some amount of backlight bleed on the left corners... they literally all have it, some are slightly better or worse but they will all have it.

By FAR the best solution to the IPS glow / BLB is to have a bias light and also do not play in a dark room... this will make more difference than any amount of replacements.

My X34 his minimal IPS glow and no BLB. Just about the best I have seen on any of the IPS/PLS panels I have owned. I'm extremely happy. It's eye wateringly gorgeous!

if that's what you say guys.. mine is almost perfect.. no Dark spots or dirt, no Dead/Stuck Pixel, 100hz OC, no scanlines or coilwine.. just the IPS Glow... even i'm in 20% brightness its still there but not so much when 100%... im always playing in the dark room.. thats the probem i think.. if mine is better.. i think il just keep it then..

and i'm enjoying it right now.. my replaced Zotac 1080 just got there a few days ago but i changed it to MSI 1080... damn.. every game is WOW... i just hate when loading screens or conversation.. there are black bars on sides where the IPS Glow are visible

here are the samples of my x34 with 0% 20% 100% and with or without light

Thanks for the input.

For the time being I'm back on a 27" 16:9 monitor. In all honesty it feels like I'm using my ancient 19" 4:3 monitor. It just feels...wrong.
I will be getting an X34 in the near future for sure after being forced to use 16:9 again.

I decided to put a hold on the X34 until I change jobs and look at it as more of a reward than a replacement as motivation to better myself. Getting a new toy isn't going to help. tongue.gif

Just don't believe you, I have yet to see a single X34 that does not have backlight bleed. They also have pretty strong glow for IPS.

I have seen 3 in person + many examples online, they all have similar bleed and glow, some a bit better / worse... but never with "minimal glow and no BLB"
