That's how it's supposed to be and a part of what makes this monitor so expensive.

Hi, could some one X34 check from the HW-menu is Burn in-feature "Yes or "No" by default? You can get to HW-menu by pressing 5-5-4-4-2-3 (5 is next to power button etc.).

Im not sure did i accidentally chanced it, so i want to know is it "Yes" or "No" by default.. smile.gif Thank you!thumb.gif

It's a waste to get this only for the PS4, or do you plan on using it with both PC & PS4? I doubt the PS4 goes up to 100 Hz in any games, you can easily get a cheaper monitor with 60 Hz only like the Dell or LG ones.

This would be primarily for the PC the PS4 would be an added bonus i basically only play FIFA on the PS4 so seeing the whole pitch would be nice, if i don't get the black bars on the side!

Btw i posted this earlier if you or anyone could answer would be nice:

I was seeing the market for monitors to buy and i was torn between the:

ASUS ROG vs XB271HU

But then i saw this model the X34 and i feel in-love so i decided to go to page 31 of this thread and started reading it, i also read the review from TFTCentral and i listened to a youtuber (Joker Productions) after all this i didn't like what i've read from this foruns, the review is quite nice from TFT cental and the youtuber bash it a bit!

So my questions are:

For a 1300€ monitor is it worth it?
When a game doesn't support the monitor what happens?
I only have a GTX 770 (i know it's short) i'm considering investing in the new Pascal when they come out, is my current graphics good enough to play the games on Medium to High definitions?
I'm not an hardcore gamer, i like to play cassually to Heroes of the Storm, Fallout 4, Star Wars Battlefront and RPG's like Divinity, Wasteland 2 is this monitor worth it for these games?

Thx for your time!

Oh okay, I had missed you earlier post.

 

  • I feel it is worth it and I plan on getting one, ultimately it's a personal choice (depending also on the budget you have :p)
  • If a game doesn't support the resolution you get black bars on the side, but most game nowadays have some kind of work-around you can apply to enable it.
  • With a GTX 770 you can probably play on medium, but on most recent games I don't think you'll be able to use High. That said you should look at some benchmarks made on 2560x1440 and consider a lower FPS from that.
  • I don't know about the other games you listed (I haven't played them) but I do know Fallout 4 does not support ultrawide yet. There is an unofficial patch/edit around to add support for it however.

Thx for your answers smile.gif

I made up my mind and plan to get one too smile.gif I read somewhere that Acer is planing a new batch on December 18, probably i should wait to buy after xmas, so that enough stock go out so i can get one from the new batch.

Europe here and plan to buy from amazon so that i can return it with no hassles if there's anything wrong

The shorter length may make a difference. Like 4K@60, 100Hz at this res is close to making out DP 1.2. I've heard of people experiencing flickering on some 4K panels with longer cables, so it's worth seeing if that fixes it.
