Okay so, I received my Acer X34.



Having read the reviews at amazon.com, I must admit I was a bit nervous. I don't think I have ever seen such a huge clusterf**k of morons whining ever since Blizzard made World of Warcraft Hunter's attribute Agility yield only 1 Attack Power instead of 2 Attack Power back in 2006.

I suspect it's the same crowd too, Kung Fu Panda/Pokemon/My Little Pony fanbois/girls.

The X34 is fine, though I find it small. I would like it to be even bigger, maybe around 40 inches or so.

My own came from Germany (South Germany near Austria) from an e-bay seller with 100% review score, so I knew I would receive an excellent unit. It was a customer return. Paid 999 Euros for it.

-Some light bleed lower left corner but nothing to cry about.Don't really understand why so many morons are whining about this.
-Can do 100Hz.
-No dead pix0lz
-No colour banding.

Other things of note:

1. WoW Vanilla runs properly at 3440X1440 21:9. Original WoW Vanilla devs must be proud their game is still played today on near 4K screens having originally started from 800X600 screens and 1024X768 back in 2005.

2. Very happy with my ridiculously overclocked GHZ Ed GTX780TI@1220 MHz . I can play all my games in reasonably high quality (most settings maxed out) with all my GPU's VRAM used and still get 60 FPS steady.

3. GSYNC is worth it. No screen tearing, no lag.

4. Using DP (of course) and Accel's B142C-007B UltraAV DisplayPort to DisplayPort 1.2 Cable with Locking Latches - 6.6 Feet (2 Meters) which I purchased from the US (Amazon.com) since it is not sold in the EU.

If you can't reach your tower with the cable provided by ACER (only a meter long) I recommend you grab the above cable and not cheap Chinese junk (e.g. Cable Matters et al), as the above cable is guaranteed to do 100HZ@3440X1440.

https://www.amazon.com/Accell-B142C-007B-UltraAV-DisplayPort-Locking/dp/B0098HVZBE

Hope this helps ppl. Have fun with your monitor and don't listen to the whin3rzorz.

Just got my refurb unit in, May 2016 build date. Can only hit 95hz, 100hz flickers like crazy. Typical amount of BLB and IPS Glow (use to it from other IPS monitors I have, don't bother me). If it would do 100hz I'd keep it, but I guess it's going back.

Only bought it since Acer had the 10%/$100 dollar off coupon code for last month, since that isn't valid now, I will probably just try to pickup a brand new one. Wish I could just wait for the x34p.

EDIT: Which vendors are better to buy from online with easy returns? I noticed Microcenter has these for $100 off, anyone deal with their returns online?

Agreed 110%. Amazon has the best customer service I have ever dealt with.
I've purchased around 100 items from Amazon over the last couple of years, they've taken care of all of my issues without charging me a penny. They will pay for your return shipping as well.
If you're not buying an item directly from Amazon themselves (ie: Asus, Acer on Amazon) you will be dealing with the seller, not Amazon. This has been a non-issue so far.

I'll be purchasing an X34 or PG279Q next month around Black Friday / Cyber Monday if they go on sale from Amazon.

Well Acer-Recertified is willing to price match another order from my last one with the 10%/$100 off. So I will give a refurb one more try before I buy new.

Just ordered the Predator X34, refurbished for $1199CAD ($911USD) and just realized that it doesn't support ULMB...which was one of my checklist items

The refurb was only 1 in stock so I bought it asap, coulda swore it had ulmb when I did

Currently have a qnix 2710 which is a 27" 2560x1440p IPS monitor overclocked at 120hz and an EVGA 1080 FTW gpu

The qnix i bought a couple years ago for 200USD and not sure the X34 will be a big enough upgrade, at this price. Will Gsync and 21:9 wow me enough? I don't know...

Thinking of cancelling...anyone do a return with Newegg before.. I wonder how painless it is..

ULMB does not have sense if you are not having at least 120 fps and up in game from my experience and others experience here.

With "only" 100Hz X34 does not need ULMB as it won't fuction good at all and you would not see difference.

ULMB is situational, not many games can be powered up 120 fps plus with high-ultra graphic options.

Imo only usefull for FPS games and you do not buy X34 to play competetive fps as it is probably worst monitor you can buy for it.

I only use ULMB in Overwatch (144 fps) and used in Battlefield one (lowered setting for stable 130 fps) with my XB271HU. Only then it shows itself.

I would say- grab it, plug it, test it, decide. thumb.gif And it is quite an upgrade smile.gif
