I do notice them, constantly, in game/on my desktop and more as each day goes by. I look over at the blue on this site, right next to my post and guess what I see? Scan lines. All over the left side. Now I see them from any normal viewing distance.

If you're loving Fallout 4, and trying your hardest to not focus at the thick black lines on the left side of your screen, you'd want it returned asap too. Since you don't see them this badly, clearly your unit isn't as bad or you don't have great eyes. I'm assuming your eyes are fine, and that each unit is different. Speaking of Fallout, it's been the worst for scanlines. Even when i'm running at 98fps, I see them on everything lightly colored on the left side of my screen which has left me a little disgruntled this afternoon.

What you're describing is clearly unacceptable - you can see the scan lines even on the desktop - at 100Hz? I would immediately send back the monitor.

Also, please understand, Smokey, I'm not trying to be antagonistic, but I spent $2000 CAD on this monitor and need to understand the issues that are arising. When I ran the pendulum demo and saw scan lines on my own monitor, it kind of threw me for a loop. (I'm sure you've read my other posts)

I'm beginning to think that I lucked out, and got one of the better monitors - though not quite as good as Cobra's.

I think I've pretty much made my decision - since I can't see these scan lines in game, and since I love the monitor so much, I'd better keep it. It's funny how all the doom and gloom has kind of rubbed off on me. When I first got the monitor I was ecstatic. Oddly this forum, more than the monitor itself, has brought me down a little. I don't know what to say.

I hope that people with issues will continue to document them with screenshots. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Yeah man, just hope NCIX hurries it up and actually approves the return. Knowing you and others have good units though is giving me the confidence to try it again, at least. So if NCIX does a refund since they aren't stocking them currently, I might just snag one from newegg.ca to try.

If i got a unit where they were only visible in low fps situation's, I'd be satisfied.

Keep us posted. I'm particularly interested, because I bought my unit from NCIX in Vancouver, Broadway store.

Could the scanlines be tied in anyway to overclocking the monitor. Has anyone with a bad case of them have you tried only overclocking to 95 or 90hz. Also in regards to the recall is it confirmed what they are fixing.

Its not really a recall.

Acer isn't asking current owners of the X34 to send their units back. What they have done is ask current SELLERS of X34s to send them back to acer and not sell anymore until they can fix them. And no, the scan line issue is NOT being addressed in this repair. It's been confirmed by an Acer rep that the only thing the this repair addresses is the "black spray paint looking" wake from sleep issue.

I just purchased my X34 a few days ago, and I like it very much. Only problem is, I can't get my image to fill the screen. I've got it set to 3440x1440 @ 100Hz, but there's sti9ll about 1/2" on each side and 1/4" on the top and bottom (not including the slim bezel). I thought the image was supposed to fill the screen? I've tried resolution refreshes, screen resets, everything I can think of. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

Nevermind...I just did a google image search and saw that all displays have about 1/2" on the sides and top of blank screen. I still love the display, but I'm a little disappointed in that. I guess what's the point of having a slim bezel on the sides if the screen doesn't stretch close to it? The multiscreen image on the acer website is misleading because it shows almost no space between the displayed iamges, but the actual setup would have an inch gap at least.

Like I said, not a big deal, just not what I was expecting. Everything else is awesome.

Yeah the zero Bezzel is really pointless if the screen doesn't fill till the edges

I've had to jump through hoops to get Fallout 4 to run perfectly on this monitor.

This has included forcing Fullscreen in the ini settings, setting up a custom SLI profile in Nvidia Inspector using Tomb Raider 2013, adding the necessary iFPSClamp=60 setting that Bethesda always leaves out, capping the frames at 60 using MSI Afternburner, and finally overclocking my two GTX 980s.

If anyone has a similar setup to mine, and can't get Fallout 4 to run smoothly, then give me a shout. My understanding is that when you arrive at the big cities your frame rate goes to hell. I'm still just outside vault 111, near my home, so maybe things will go to hell later on. And yes that's how long it took me to get this game up and running. Two blasted days.

Smooth as silk right now though. The wonders of Gsync are paying off big time in this game. It's a holiday where I am, so I'm going to play the living daylights of this game.

+rep for the sli flag bud, that one works for me. Other flags increased the GPU load but lowered my actual fps. This one I just tested in the city and I didn't drop below 90. Usage went from 99% on one gpu to 70% on two.

As for it running smoothly, I've no idea what hardware you have but with one 980ti it's running very smoothly with no additional ini tweaks outside of fov and resolution (fps cap, uncap etc). Running at nearly a solid 100 fps with only the one issue of getting stuck in terminals occasionally. It's worth the high fps, but annoying, and the only problem I'm having so I hope it gets patched... The HUD is a bit annoying, but I've found turning the opacity down to 20-40% helps tremendously.

G-sync is totally a heavensend for this game.

Edit: That SLI flag actually breaks faces in the game. frown.gif Nice performance increase, but the faces are bad. Back to one card.
