He has got to be talking about the pg279q which is out on Amazon.com. I do wish Asus would hurry up and get their 34" out. Metros apparently does not know what he thinks he knows. Originally he said there would be an announcement by 1st week in Dec. and maybe out by the end of Dec.

Don't do it, Don't order from NCIX (at least the US one). They left the retail box of the PG279Q monitor out in the open in front of my house...anybody could of just grabbed the monitor (because you can clearly see it's a gaming monitor). They were supposed to get a signature...then again you can say that is FedExs fault (also the box was banged up and obviously previously opened) and not NCIX but THEN the monitor was defective (top left diagonal half had a yellow/brownish hue to it and a good amount of back light bleed (very noticeable). They say they don't normally RETURN monitors and only offer exchanges but because they don't have anymore stock of the PG279Q in stock they will give me a full refund...AFTER they inspect it for defects...if they don't consider it a defect they will charge me 15% restocking fee which is around 200$ for the 1200$ plus tax/shipping charge...yes I over payed thinking it would be a quality panel but it wasn't and they wouldn't even have let me return it if they had others in stock. I over payed for a defective USED monitor so I'm glad they don't have any in stock so I can get a full refund and never order from them again. They make no effort to let you know monitors are final sale if an exchange is available. anyways got an x34 from acers website and it's flawless (I thought it had BLB but from having it on for an hour and inspecting it, it's just normal IPS glow (little more noticeable than normal because of how wide the monitor is but really you can't notice it in normal use, even with dark content like dark background,gaming,videos).

TL;DR My PG279Q from NCIXUS sucked and they don't take refunds for monitors only exchange if in stock. The X34 I got from Acer is flawless and I love it.

Meanwhile the x34 that I got from NCIX (Canada) had been flawless.
Guess its a lottery with retailers as well really.

Got my X34 yesterday. First i was little skeptic about quality of this monitor, have been reading so many bad things about this. After i heard Asus wont release their 34" 100Hz monitor anytime soon, i decided to give this monitor a chance, even that it is most expensive computer part i have ever bought.

First impression was "Wow". Even thought i knew this is 21:9, but couldn't imagine it's this wide! One reason is that this monitor comes much closer to my eyes that my previous Asus ROG Swift, because stand is much deeper than Swift had.

Another Wow-effect game from IPS-panel, colors are so good and clear and wieving angles are so good compared to my old TN-panel. Lucky me, i got almost perfect panel, no color bending, works @ 100Hz without problems, not so much backlight bleeding i was expecting etc.

Build quality feels much better than i expected too, i can say this is made very well. It was also little surprise how well OC'd GTX 980 Ti (1430/2000) can run games on this high resolution, Star Wars Battlefront runs about 75-125 fps and with G-Sync it's silky smooth. So far im more than satisfied to this monitor!thumb.gif

Got my fourth X34 yesterday, September batch.





Scanlines are here again, as soon as overclock is ON and 60hz in Nvidia Panel.
This is probably the worst panel since scanlines are visible on the entire panel and when the FPS slider is upped to +100fps, they don't disappear completely.

This one also have horrible bleeding in bottom left corner. I also noticed when I turned back to XB270HU that colors are much more vibrant than X34 where they seem washed out and a bit blurry. (either the OC is on or off).

I'm tired playing that game, that was a complete waste of time...

Does anybody here have Netflix?

How do you make the on-screen image larger? Even 21:9 movies aren't displaying in fullscreen, but rather in a little rectangular box in the middle.

Thank you. That's exactly what I was looking for.

Another question about Netflix. I've just read that if you watch Netflix through Google Chrome, then the video streams at 720p, whereas if you use the Netflix App, then the streaming for HD video will be at a full 1080p.

True or false?

Unfortunately, I have bad news to report.

What I feared would happen, has happened. My scanline issue has now developed into a more serious problem. I now have a very bad flickering issue. The intensity of the flickering coincides with the intensity of the scanlines.

For example, if I overclock my monitor to 100Hz, and then in the Pendulum demo limit my frame-rate to 30, the scanlines are VERY bad and there's also VERY bad flickering. The flickering just suddenly happened tonight, out of the blue.

Unfortunately, the flickering appears to be directly associated with the scanline issue. I had hoped to work through the scanline issue, by adjusting my overclock accordingly. Unfortunately, this new flickering issue makes that impossible.

EDIT:

I have no idea what's going on. The flickering is slowly going away.

I was watching Netflix when the problem originally happened. I was over at the sink, listening to the show, rather than watching it, when I turned around and realized that the picture had frozen on the screen. That's when I first saw the flickering. It was terrible. I then exited Netflix, and the flickering continued. I even shut off my monitor for ten minutes, and then turned it on, but the flickering was still there.

There's no question about it though. The flickering is lowly going away. Wow. This is just bizarre. Anyone have any thoughts here?

EDIT 2:

Incredibly, the issue has now gone away. Here's the thing though: the flickering, when I first saw it, was just terrible. I mean, it was very severe, to the point where I felt that if I didn't turn off the monitor immediately I would damage it.

I did turn it off - for ten minutes. I even unplugged it from the wall. When I plugged everything back in, the flickering was still there. Not in a million years would I ever have expected the flickering to just gradually go away, but that's exactly what happened. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this happening. Could this be some kind of Gaussian issue?

Guys, which is better.

XB271HU or X34? I am going to get this shipped all the way to Dubai so I need to know how is the hit rate in terms of getting a good one with these monitors. Playing the panel lottery with Amazon will be painful for me.

Also I can either get:

XB271HU + Second Classified

OR

X34 and keep running a single 980 Ti.
