ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 282

post #2811 of 2853
Hello everyone,

I bought an X34 2 weeks ago after being researching and saving for almost the past 2 years.

The monitor was perfect in all the possible issues except for coilwhine at 100Hz in light colored images like chrome, pdf's, etc.

Today my second X34 came. Again everything perfect but this one has coilwhine too. The webpage i notice it the most is 9gag.com as far as i tested. It might be the combination of blacks and whites. The whine goes away at 60Hz. And to notice it the room must be in complete silence, and as i said, in light colored images.

I need to know how many of the ones that can test this and reply have coilwhine on the cases i explained and how many of you don't. I need to know if i should keep returning them until getting a good one or not.

Video i recorded of the coilwhine of the first monitor for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMoryckq170

Please, take a minute to test this in complete silence and tell me if you can hear it at 100Hz. It comes from behind the monitor.

Thanks in advance.

I think you are likely to have coilwhine at 100hz on a white page with black, I find it quite annoying at 100hz, so I use the monitor at 80hz on desktop and 100hz in games, 100hz is nicer but not a massive issue on desktop, in games however I can notice instantly.. Unfortunately these monitors have multiple issues and the chance of getting one with zero issues is probably also zero.

Yeah, after getting the first one with coilwhine, i created a post in reddit and more or less 4 people replied, 2 of them said they don't have it, and from the other 2, one said he just lived with it and the other one returned 2 monitors with the issue and gave up on the X34.

So I created this comment here because i think i can get more people to tell me about it here. If I see there's almost the same number of people that has it and don't i will keep trying.

If not, i guess i can do what you do, switching between 80 and 100 each time I play. It's a bummer and more after payin 1100€, but i guess i can live with that.

Please, keep telling me here how many of you have it and how many don't. If you are not sure test it with the room in complete silence.

You would really help me.

I got my X34 the other day after buying a refurb on ebay from acer recertified. Came in a huge plain beige box with cables and monitor. It can only overclock to 95hz but 0 dead pixels and minimal back light bleeding. Going from a 24" 1440P to this beast is a huge adjustment though. I sit pretty close to the monitor so my eyes can't see everything on the screen. Gaming-wise, it is amazing. I've never tried G-sync before but after trying it out with my GTX 1080, I can't go back (played games with both G-sync on and off). My initial impressions are that this is a wonderful monitor.

Anyone, want to share their settings for colors? I'm trying various settings and tried TFT's with their color profile but I didn't really like it.

I use the TFT Central one. Could you please tell me if you have coilwhine? Mine whines even at 80Hz in 9gag.com for example.

just got delivered a refurbished x34 bought earlier in the week for $670 off acer store and i think i hit the jackpot
almost brand new with little to no blb, oc to 100hz easily without any issue what's so ever, panel was manufactured January 2017

in comparison to my 100hz 3440x1440 VA panel (m340clz), the contrast/saturation is obviously worse, but no ghosting at all (although m340clz uses the samsung va panel, not AU Optronic's -- so ghosting aint bad to start with)

gsync paired with 1080sli is pure heaven

My X34 had the screen broken the other day and I'm looking to see if anyone know where to buy a replacement screen from? I would also be willing to pay for shipping and a small amount to someone that has an X34 that is no longer working and the screen is not cracked and had now dead Pixels before it stoped working.

Thats a needle in a haystack. Best bet would be ebay.
