ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 239

post #2381 of 3058
I am looking to upgrade to a 34" wide and this seems like one of the best options. The question is should i also give the asus 34" wide a look and is there a updated version of this monitor coming any time soon ? I would hate to pick one up late in its life cycle and something much better comes along right after.

Love this monitor so far. Set it to 100hz and all I can say is everything is more "brisk". My favorite feature is the ambiance light. Still trying to figure out what color I want to use. The stand is excellent as well. Perfect complement to my 1080. biggrin.gif

I just received my x34 from newegg a month ago with a May 2016 build date. Its not the x34a with swivel and headphone holder. The x34a is exclusively a euro product.

I think i might wait for the revised version as it has a few nice upgrades over this model.

Any word on a release date ?

I'm surprised that we still don't have any real competition for this or the ROG swift on the market. Keep seeing new FreeSync monitors popping up in all kinds of resolutions, but manufactures appear to be staying away from GSync as much as possible. Running dual 980ti's right now and have been wanting to switch to 3440x1440, but want an adaptive sync monitor and $1200 is still way to high for me. Even the $1000 referbs are overpriced.

If competition would come out and get these monitors down into the $700 - $800 range...that would be much easier to manage.

Not going to happen. Too much tech with these displays. You have to remember the FreeSync version of this display is only 75hz. Ultra-Wide resolution, IPS Panel, 100hz , G-SYNC and LED underlighting is going to cost a premium. With current 27" 16:9 IPS 144hz displays going for $700-800 goodluck getting a loaded Ultra-wide for that kind of money unless used. The 34" is just in a different league all together.

They had standard 1440p 60z with the LG IPS panel for ~$900-1200 each back in 2010/2011, now they're what? $250.

I have no doubt in 1 year the g-sync 21:9 IPS models will be sub $950 for brand new.

Got mine today from Amazon, it has a bit of yellow glow in the top left and right corners. Bottom right has more noticeable IPS glow for some reason but I think I can live with it. The markup on these is a bit ridiculous though. I also tried out a 34UC88 and it has much better build quality for roughly half the price (but I know it doesn't have the high refresh goodness of this display). I also like the more pronounced curve on the LG. The X34P may be the better compromise when it's finally released.

I've been using 120hz+ displays for years, ever since the Samsung 2233RZ and couldn't stand the 60hz refresh rate on the LG. Not sure if I should keep this and wait a few more months or just keep it and enjoy it. It will be hard to give it up after experiencing how immersive the ultrawide is.
