Can anyone post a picture of what a game looks like that DOESNT support 21:9?

Something like StarCraft 2 for example?

I really want this monitor but basically I spend like 90% of my time playing SC2.

If you read through that thread you'll see that 3440x1440 isn't really supported.

Is anybody here playing Assassin's Creed Syndicate on this monitor?

I can't believe how awful this port is. GTX 980 SLI setup, and I've had to lower settings just to make the game playable. I dropped the distance slider down a notch, and the shadow slider down a notch, and I disabled AA completely.

Guess how many frames I'm averaging? - about 40.

Yup. 40 frames per second. Guys, this game would be unplayable without Gsync at this resolution. BTW, I fussed with settings all night long to try and get this game functional. At no point did the scanline issue even cross my mind. I just took another look at the game right now, deliberately searching for scanlines. At 40 FPS with my overclock disabled I can't see anything.

Anyhow, I'm going back to Fallout 4 - another unoptimized game. It seems that 2015 has been the year of unfinished games.

Let's hope that things end on a high note with Just Cause 3 - can't say I'm too excited about it. But I did have a lot of fun with Just Cause 2 a few years back.

Did you guys hear the news about Deus Ex Mankind Divided being pushed back to August?

Oh well.

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.

Haha thats me with my bionic eyes! ph34r-smiley.gif

Yes my DELL went back, although somehow they rejected the RMA saying they cant find a fault, they still gave me a refund because of distance selling regulations.

Been through 2 x ASUS PG279Q's, a DELL S2176DG and keeping an eye on the x34 thread but none of them seem to be problem free and worth the asking price.

Vertical line issue for me was pretty terrible on the DELL.

The 'scanline' issue and the unpredictability of final OC put me off getting the x34. That plus the dead pixel policy for this monitor as set out by ACER is 10 dead pixels!!!!

lol. You're a veteran of crappy monitors.

What happened with the PG279Qs?

The X34 is fine except for the wake from sleep issue (you can youtube it) and the scanlines problem.

Solutions: None.

That should get you up to speed. To be fair, some people don't have any problems.

Cheers man.

The ACER links are just blank for me though?

My first PG279Q had dirt and dead pixels.

The second had excessive IPS glow and BLB. Very poor QC with this monitor and only seen 1 or two that are just about acceptable over in the PG279Q thread.

The Dell had vertical lines on faster moving objects are fairly bad pixel inversion. It wasn't worth the £600 price tag.

All i'm after really is 1440p, 144hz, IPS but it seems the technology just isn't quite there yet.

A quick update for those wondering about availability, Newegg just notified me that they have the pre ordered X34 and that it will be shipped within 24-48 hours

I pre-ordered on November, 2nd

guess now I will spend a week making prayers to the god of screen (multi)lottery...

Yup... just got my notification from Newegg an hour ago. They are preparing for shipping as I type! Hopefully it can ship today so I can get it before Thanksgiving... ugh so close weirdsmiley.gif

Newegg must have gotten a decent sized shipment since we are both getting our monitors, however it still shows out of stock on Newegg. So I wonder what batch we are getting.

1. Someone's refurbished Monitor

2. Recalled Monitor which Acer fixed or...

3. A brand new batch of newly made monitors.

It can't be 1 right? Hopefully Chichquanduk and I can report perfect monitors to you guys. That would be a really good sign that Acer cleared up the issues. I just don't know if I will be getting this thing by next week before the holiday : /

I find that Newegg typically ships the last revision of products I buy. They turn over pretty fast.
