After further experimentation, I have to say that the jump from 75Hz to 100Hz isn't nearly as dramatic as the jump from 60Hz to 75Hz. I wonder if it's really worth all the fuss and bother?

For one thing, I'm noticing that at 100Hz the load on my two GTX 980s grows quite pronounced. Also, for some weird reason, at 100Hz, my PC case fans are ramping up for ten seconds at a time. That extra 25 FPS seems to cause troubles.


And on a completely unrelated note:

I bought a new keyboard today because my old one didn't fit in between the two legs of the X34. I bought the Corsair K65 RGB mechanical keyboard, which fits in between the two legs perfectly. It's a nifty little keyboard with a nice tactile feel to the keys, and an impressive lighting system. which is programmable.

I highly recommended this keyboard for use with this monitor, if you happen to be in the market.

Truth be told, it looks way better in person. It has a very heavy, durable feel to it as well, since it's made out of aluminium. It doesn't slide around like some keyboards do. It's probably the nicest keyboard I've ever owned.


And another thing: On the X34, I keep losing the mouse cursor. I'm not sure if the cursor is actually disappearing, or if I'm losing it? Is this happening to anyone else?

The jump from 60 to 75 has a deltaT of 3.3ms. The jump from 75 to 100 has a deltaT of 3.3ms too. So, in reality, both jumps are equivalent.

I have the older non-light up version of K65. An awesome keyboard it is.

Don't have any mouse cursor problem.

My adapter part is ADP-135KB T. is this the same as yours?

I haven't been able to test the monitor with another adapter yet. I couldn't find a good one at work at 19V. So, i'll have to go out and buy one.

Can anyone without scanlines report their adapter part name please?
post #415 of 3075
Very good work, Mountainlifter wink.gif

I have 2 X34 waiting to be shipped back so I still have the adapters :



Fact is both of my displays do have scanlines. But the one from Amazon (September 15) is really worst than the other from October.
Obviously, I tested each display switching the adapter but I didn't see any positive change.

Therefore I hope for the sake of us who are frustrated by this impressive monitor on the paper that it's all about a question of adapter quality. But I have doubts mellowsmiley.gif

Thanks for that pic. That is exactly the same model of adapter I have.

It is very unlikely that it is the adapter and it is probably an internal signalling issue. Yet search as I might I cannot find any material on such low frequency ripple. Traditionally, ripple is very high frequency and gets attenuated at the load but this low frequency could bypass all that and keep on going. Which is what is egging me on to get to an end on this possibility.

I'm hoping someone without scanlines also posts a pic soon.

100%. The OP is a ACER hater and only drops in to urge people to buy asus or criticize them about their ACER purchase. I brought this to a few mods attention when the FIRST owners club was merged and they didn't care at all.

They did care enough to remove half my rep though for my acer x34 tests when I had one at the beginning. Because "The same people gave me rep multiple times a day for a few days." Also removed my Acer Pred link to their forums.

I'm on the run here (already late for work), so I can't post my part number... but I'll try to do so later.

Here's the thing. NCIX has a return policy of 30 days. After that, I have to deal with Acer. But Acer isn't even acknowledging this issue. I only have 5 days left to return this monitor - my window is closing fast and I'm getting a little nervous here.

As I've written in my posts above, I can eliminate scan lines in every game I own by adjusting the X34's overclock, essentially matching the refresh rate with the average frame rate of whatever game I'm playing. I love this monitor to death. That said, if these scanlines are not the result of an aggressive overclock, but of faulty design or production, then obviously I would be better off returning the monitor regardless of how much I like it. I'm also wondering if maybe the scanlines will become more prominent? Some people are saying they can't get rid of their lines, and that's worrisome. If this issue develops for me, and Acer continues to remain silent, then I'm going to be very angry and very disappointed.

I'm really unhappy right now with Acer's decision to keep quiet about this issue. It seems that this is how companies are proceeding these days. The big software developers do the same thing. They release games that don't work, and then just sit back silently as 'the community' attempts to solve the problem on their own using limited tools.

That guy from Acer... Cory... I'm sorry, but he's useless. He needs to address this issue, and instead he's just keeping quiet. Clearly he's read about the issue, but he's just ignoring it. I'm very frustrated with him.

Mountainlifter, I'd like to hear your thoughts about returning the monitor. I believe that you and I have exactly the same issue, and you clearly have a better understanding of this than I do. Your excellent chart is in harmony with what I'm seeing on my own monitor, so your counsel would be very valuable to me.

Will you be returning your X34?

No scanlines. This is my adapter, plugged in behind a sine wave form UPS, mains is 230 V 50 Hz.

lol acer sucks so bad. I saw my ban was only for 3 days so after 3 days ended (yesterday) I got back on to let acer-phil know that his 3 day ban and editing forum members posts to fit their agenda prompted me to return my monitor and thanked him politely. Thank god it was the last day. That post was edited instantly and I haven't posted since. I logged back on today to check the thread and they perma banned me lol. Thank god for that. I'm done with acer, I'm not promoting anyother company but I know going with these guys is a big mistake.

Ill go ahead and leave my video of their defective product up. 6k views in 2 weeks are all potential buyers that are saying, naaah...

I recommended this monitor at first, but given the chance to experience acer customer service and the plethora of problems that are arising just in the first few weeks are a very bad sign. Only issue being addressed was WFS issue. There's all the other problems that I'm not going to even start listing.

Bottom line is that if monitors are hiving these issues out of the box, how will they be 1 year down the road? Its just common sense.

I'm going to order 3 Korean (120Hz) IPS and save 500 bucks..

These displays are good for 60Hz, maybe when DP1.3 comes out the bandwidth increase will help shrink these issues but by then 4k will be 100hz too.

If you look at stangs thread on the acer forums almost e every post has been edited. I know I didn't edit any of my posts and others didn't either. See the trend. Any anti acer propaganda is deleted. Funniest thing is that I'm the top kudo'd person in that thread and I'm perma banned lol.
