ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 6

So I'm trying to figure out an issue I'm noticing in a couple games...

Let me know what you think...

The first shot is a picture from my phone taken of DayZ running in real time, notice the horizontal lines.



The second shot is a picture from my phone taken of the screenshot of that exact frame - I tried to line things up to match as close as possible.



Sorry the first shot isn't as in focus as the 2nd, but it gets the point across. So far I've only noticed this in DayZ and Fishing Planet. Going to play around to see if it is a refresh rate issue or maybe G-Sync related. But why would I see it in those games but not others?

Edit: Looks like this isn't new, https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/3q49xb/my_experience_with_the_x34/ & http://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Discussions/Predator-X34-OC-amp-GSYNC-Scanline-problem/td-p/393009 - will have to keep reading up on it...

Edit 2: LOL right in this thread already, of course. http://www.overclock.net/t/1537403/tftcentral-acer-predator-xr341ck-34-curved-gaming-screen-with-g-sync/4750#post_24551122

Now that I know more about the problem I can see it in other games, just saw it in TF2. Much harder to notice but it is there.

Which VGA have you?

P.D: No matters, seems to happen on 980 also as told on reddit.

GTX 780 - 100Hz.

Will try messing with OverDrive and report back.

i have the non-gsync version, it does not even do the 75hz that Acer said its capable of. 60hz no frame skipping, but 75hz and i get lots of frame loss. anybody else having this issue?

Got mine today!

First I noticed the blue banding in the test.
Also a stuck blue pixel in the middle of the screen.
And after 1 hour the pixel turned into a vertical and horizontal line.

So regarding the horizontal lines issue.

I can confirm that over drive doesn't seem to have anything to do with it. It is all about overclocking and G-Sync.

With overclocking turned on and G-Sync turned on the lines happen even at 60Hz. It does seem WORSE at 100Hz than 60Hz though. I didn't test anything in between. Turning either G-Sync off OR turning overclocking off solves the problem. Using them together is the source, just as smoobandit said.

The problem is subtle but really annoying once you see it. I actually noticed it the first time I fired up DayZ the day I got my monitor but dismissed it as something to do with the anti-glare coating - it is almost like a static overlay on the screen, when you move the camera around there is a parallax type effect.

I tried to get some more good photos of it but I couldn't get another one that showed it clearly.

So, I'm in !

Great monitor, I must say I was a bit frightened after pre-ordering it and reading all the reviews on the thread... but now I have it I'm very happy, none of the issues mentioned do I notice - except the occasional black-after-sleep but since it fixes itself as soon as I am in bios, linux or Windows I don't really care !

Some pic's... I will say that my first impression after unboxing was that I found the monitor not as big as I expected... comparing it to my old HP LP3065, 30" with big borders around the screen, it especially looks kind of "narrow"... but the picture quality is great and the width really adds to immersion. Not mentionning the 100 Hz (reached without any issue), compared to my former 60 Hz...

I guess I'm in the owners club for now. Mine isn't stable at 100hz. I've tried everything to get it stable, but nothing works. It flickers at 100hz and multiple other issues. At 95hz it seems stable. Also has Coil whine or buzzing at anything over 75hz. If the monitor was $600, I probably would just be happy. But not for $1300. Hopefully Microcenter get's some more in so I can exchange it. Or I'll just have to return it. Probably wait for the Asus 34" Gsync and see if their firmware is any better.

It's pathetic how monitors are so hit and miss now days. If you don't have BLB you may have flickering, not able to hit 100hz, or the horizontal lines.. People are actually happy they only have BLB or maybe a few dead pixels now.. where is technology going?
