ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 54

Too funny. Acer mods are removing bad feedback from the 61 page thread. I read every post and likley before the mods do and 50% of the recent posts don't make it for an hour. They are preparing big damage control.

After reading through all the issues people have been having I'm counting my lucky stars that mine is so problem free.

I was also reading reviews from the retailer that I bought mine from here in Canada, and to my surprise most people have no issues also.one even went so far as to mention the scanline issue and that their display doesnt suffer from it.

I just remembered something. That on my old GTX 480 SLI setup the same thing used to happen after a fresh display driver install. I'd boot up and SLI wouldn't appear. So I'd have to reseat my 480s. It got to the point where I dreaded having to update my driver, since I'd always get that glitch. I forgot all about this.


Also, I can't believe Assassin's Creed Syndicate on this monitor... I can't believe it.
s no damn way I can re seat my cards easily there wc so would take ages. I'm going to try remove all nvidia shizz then re install and hope that sorts it. It's strange why nvidia control panel is so slow tho how can a monitor cause that??

Most people who return their monitor's don't leave reviews.

Also, try unplugging your computer, and depressing the power button for at least fifteen seconds.

Tuckers, I'm not convinced this actually IS a monitor issue. I think this might be an SLI issue related to the newest drivers.

So why aren't the older drivers working? Could be a registry issue.

Scan line issue is not covered up its all over this forum (believe me i cant escape it ) There just have to be limits to the complaints. Esp when they are comming from a few people.

Something else I've discovered (which I suspected before buying this monitor): many of my games just don't run at 100 FPS on my present hardware. I have two 980s, btw.

Yes, I could probably delve into my library and start installing dozens of games that would run at 100 FPS, but those aren't the games I'm playing now.

Watch Dogs, Fallout 4, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, The Witcher 3, Rome 2, Metal Gear V - not one of these is running at 100 FPS for me. Most are at or below 60 FPS. This resolution is tough. So, again, thank god for the wonders of Gsync.

I'm also a little disappointed by 100 FPS. The jump from 60 to 75 is noticeable. From 75 to 100, not so much. Also, running at 100 FPS makes my case fans ramp up for some unknown reason. I'll play Bioshock Infinite at 100 FPS, but surprisingly I'm happy to keep this monitor at 60 HZ most of the time.

And that's the other thing that's surprised me: 60 FPS Gsync is noticeably smoother than 60 FPS Vsync... very surprising,

I definitely notice from 75 > 100.. very very obvious. I had a 100hz monitor before the Acer though, so maybe I'm more sensitive to it.. but yeah, it may not be as profound as 60 > 100, but still noticable. 100 > 144 not as much.

Where did you buy your monitor? I bought mine at the NCIX Broadway store. That was the first time I've ever been there. I have no idea why, but places like that depress me. I actually prefer buying from Newegg. It's more exciting waiting for the delivery truck to arrive.

I have been lurking in most of the X34 threads on various forums. After reading through countless posts and some very tantalizing photos - I am sold on this monitor. Initially wanted to wait for the ASUS PG348Q but haven't heard anything on that front for a while so I guess it will be releasing sometime next year.

Anyway, I am trying to find this display in a brick-mortar store in Houston, TX or surrounding areas. Reason for this is to avoid to-and-fro shipping in case I am not lucky enough as some of the others and get a dud or a unit with various issues suffered by others.

If anyone has any idea where to find it in Houston, please give me a shout!

Thx.
