As usual, some other people are defending that panel by claiming that the guy who reported it has "bionic eyes" and that the artifact is insignificant. And so the cycle continues. What is it with these monitors.

The Swift and the Dell have the same panel regardless of the small model number change, and so they both suffer from pixel inversion.

While I'd wonder if that's similar to what's happening here, it wouldn't explain why it's only on sections of the monitor for some. Maybe that factor isn't as important as I think it is.

There is a big difference between what is happening here and with the dell/swift.
Their vertical lines are alternating lines of pixels. Correct line - dark line - correct line etc. especially in motion.
With the X34, as we both know, the horizontal lines are a clump of pixels alternating dark and bright grey.

EDIT: I'll be borrowing a power supply tomorrow evening, maybe even tonight. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I know absolutely nothing about this issue on a technical level. So don't put any stock into this, but I have a feeling the problem is actually inside the panel. Possibly with the Gsync module. I mean, the scanlines really only appear when Gsync is enabled.

That said, it would be pretty cool if it were a power brick issue. Then we wouldn't have to send our displays back.

Me, I'm just very disappointed that Acer, instead of communicating with us, has chosen to remain silent. That's not helpful at all.

Well, for one, I don't know much technically about panels in particular especially ones with special modules like the G-sync which Nvidia won't reveal details about. I'm just learning myself. Never opened one up.

Our X34's problem is G-sync module related but not G-sync related. You can quickly test this out by setting 100Hz on the OSD and setting 50Hz on the NVCP. Use a suitable bright colored wallpaper and you should see scanlines on just the desktop. This is in line with Column B on my table.

Also the panel is separate from the electronic boards themselves; the panel just connects to the boards via ribbon cables. The G-sync module is easily detachable from that board also. Take a look at this link where they show pictures of all the parts http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphics-Cards/NVIDIA-G-Sync-DIY-Upgrade-Kit-Installation-and-Performance-Review/Internals-a

I just tried a different 19V, 7.1A adapter with the acer X34 monitor. The scanlines are still present. My idea that a different adapter might fix things was incorrect. rolleyes.gif

If anybody gets Assassin's Creed Syndicate working with this monitor, please let me know.

There's no option for 21:9.

Oh well. Nice try.

ubisoft is notorious for no 21:9 or surround support. You will likely never see it for ACU. Id try WSGF.org and use their hacks if there is any chance.

AC Unity supports 21:9 natively for me, I'm surprised that Syndicate doesn't.

Any idea when places will have stock on this monitor? I saw that one place thats getting them in but I don't like their return policy.
