ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 53

post #521 of 3056
I just ordered this monitor from a local retailer in Australia, and was told that Acer aren't currently sending out any new stock from their warehouse. I'm guessing this is because Acer are trying to fix some of the issues people have been experiencing? Anyone have any idea how long it will take to fix? Was kinda looking foreward to getting this monitor before Christmas tongue.gif

Hard to say really. Right now you can order one direct from Acer in Canada, and they'll ship it out.

I found the listing on Amazon.ca as well for about $60 less than MSRP, so I decided to give it another shot and place the order. Figured I can't go wrong with Amazon, but they do not have an ETA. I would expect that since Amazon and Best Buy, who only list items when they're about to have stock, both have the listing that every retailer will have a sudden wave of stock within the next few days.

Anyone know if this monitor will be available soon? Thinking I want this monitor but the xr34 is available right now...wonder if I need the 100hz instead of the 75hz?

It's not so much a battle of 75 vs 100 Hz, but the Variable Refresh Rate system the monitors offer. If it's the $899 X34 I'll confess I was also tempted by it, but I ordered the 279Q because of G-SYNC. If you don't care much for VRR, the X34 @ 75 Hz would most likely be a wonderful monitor. So long as it doesn't turn out to have scan lines or other issues these new monitors seem to have (due to pushing monitors to the limits I think).

No one knows for sure. It seems like there may be new stock coming this week or next though

Right now..I have the benq bl3200pt. I dont like the pic quality like I did my IPS Korean 27'. Yes the x34 is 849.99 on amazon and its temping. I dont think I could go down to a 27 monitor after using a 32' for over a year. How's the pic quality between the 279q vs the x34?

Oh man $850 for the X34?! If my 279q turns out to be crap I may consider that now. Sure I'd lose G-SYNC, but it'll be $50 cheaper and giving me an experience in 21:9 ratios.

Regarding pic quality I'm not sure. You'll have to check monitor review sites regarding that proposition in order for a better opinion as I haven't experienced either. My 279q arrives tomorrow though, but I have no idea what a 34" monster can deliver.

As far as stock goes who knows for certain. Sadly I don't think that deal on the X34 will last forever, so you'll have to battle with yourself to determine which route to take. I've become impatient as I've grown older, so I would be the person to get something now and not later. That's just me though tongue.gif

If you have an Nvidia card do not get the XR341CK, TFTcentral says it has frameskipping issues at 75 Hz. Works fine with an AMD card though.

144Hz Frame Skipping Bug from NVIDIA card?

We found that from our NVIDIA test system when running at the full 3440 x 1440 resolution and 75Hz refresh rate, that the screen seemed to drop some frames. We verified this via the tests at BlurBusters.com, but you could also see the issue with the naked eye on moving content like PixPerAn. In those tests the image skipped and jumped a bit. It only did this at the maximum 75Hz refresh rate, not at anything lower like 60Hz.

We found no such issue with the screen from our AMD system, either using a proper FreeSync end to end setup, or breaking the FreeSync chain and using the card with an older driver or without DisplayPort. Perhaps this is an issue with NVIDIA cards. We've reported it back to Acer for further checks.

I've heard of reports like that but I was unsure if they were true or nay-say. Well that kills my 21:9 hopes with the X34 if my 279Q is poop haha!

Thanks for all the info. If I buy the XR34 I'll from Amazon so I can send it back if I dont like it. I do have a GTX 780 card right now.
