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 : /

#1 Wouldn't surprise me, they have low inventory and the monitors have only been out for a month or two, Newegg is getting my return on Monday, so if anyone sees 1 dead pixel in the middle left of the screen they buy a month or so from now, that was probably my monitor wink.gif

Cory from Acer responded to the forums with this just now:

I can mention that all X34 products sold into the Europe and Americas regions have been reworked to remedy the backlight not turning on from sleep concern. So for those of you who are waiting for us to offer the X34 again, your wait should be over already or will be over in short order.

I agree... that's why I "pre ordered" from Newegg. I figured they would be my best shot at getting the latest model.

Lol I will keep an eye out for your 1 dead pixel nerdsmiley.png

Definitely sounds like Acer is going to ramp up shipping of this monitor.... but have they fixed the scan line issues... jealoussmiley.gif

I complained about Acer still being silent with the scanlines today in their forum and got this response from Cory also:

It's easy to acknowledge the ongoing discussions about the X34 monitor here and in other social venues, however these issues are not affecting everyone and that makes it difficult when trying to identify and resolve. We're continuing to work and I'll make sure you all receive updates as soon as I have them.

Ugh.... well there you have it. That is a clear indication that Acer has done nothing to fix the scan line issues. That is disappointing to hear. Whelp, nothing I can do but wait for mine to arrive and see what I get. I will update you guys as soon as I can. I am in America BTW.

Excuse me, but that's utter bunk - if Acer wants to pretend they can't find any displays in their own inventory that have scanlines then we seriously need to start talking about class action, and I'm not joking.

Utter BS.

Seriously, is there one person here at this forum who believes that Acer, while testing these monitors, has been unable to find even one that has scanlines? Because I don't believe that for one second.

I just got my notification from Newegg as well. They've charged my card and the order is listed as "packaging." Hopefully we're getting a new batch with the issues resolved. thumb.gif

If the new people get monitors that don't have scanlines then, on a personal level, I'm going to be seriously angry.

It will mean that Acer fixed the problem without acknowledging it. Meaning those of us who bought from the first batch will be stuck with $2000 CAD lemons.

The fact that Acer Cory has just made an outrageous denial - basically saying Acer can't find any problems with their units - leads me to believe I'm about to be royally screwed over. I seriously do not like where this is headed.

I hope that the people getting the new monitors will not have scanlines. But understand this. Had it not been for the first people, those scanlines would not have been discovered, and they would still exist. Somebody has to be the first to buy a product. If something goes wrong, then those people discovering the problems need to be taken care of - not ignored, and left with lemons.

Not true at all. It only means they're not acknowledging that there was or is an issue. Maybe there WAS an issue that's been resolved, but Acer isn't t going to admit that because it would mean actually having to take care of the people who bought from the first batch.

Highly unlikely. The monitors we are getting now are the same one as before, the unsold ones they "recalled" to fix the WFS issue by replacing a piece of hardware. Unless that piece of hardware is also the cause of the scanlines we will still see them on these monitors shipping now.

-terebyte- that is what I am thinking. My guess is the monitor I am getting was recalled by Acer and fixed for the WFS issue. I doubt the scan line issue was addressed at all. We shall see once us new ones get the monitor next week. Mine shipped from Newegg today. smile.gif

My god... the wonders of Gsync...

Tonight I re-downloaded Rome 2, a game I actually gave up on because the campaign map was a total stutter-fest, dropping from 60 frames all the way down to the low 40's each and every time I'd turn the camera. I'd play that game for a couple of hours, and after walking away from my computer I'd continue to see the stutter - in real life. Playing Rome 2 used to turn me into a basket case.

Playing this game on a Gsync display is a pleasure. The campaign map is butter smooth. I have the yellow frequency display enabled on the upper right side of my monitor, and every time I turn the camera in Rome 2 it goes crazy as my monitor's frequency readjusts itself to match my frame rate.

This is exactly what I had hoped for when ordering this monitor. Just a wonderful display.
