Got my 2nd X34 on Friday from Newegg. September build, BLB is somewhat bad like the last one but I really don't care much, no dead pixel on this one though. My last monitor had some pretty bad color banding on the black spectrum only, this one is much better too, almost non existent.

Scanlines are still there (even from 3 feet away), but this one is substantially less, most noticeably below 60 FPS. I was getting some coil whine earlier but after messing with some settings like turning off DTS in the main menu, it seems to be gone oddly enough. Going to be returning the monitor shortly, maybe the 3rd one will be better.

Oh they also fixed the wake form sleep issue on this one, congrats to Acer for fixing 1 issue, now on to the scanlines please.

Update, I have asked JJ for some confirmation on the matter, I will update when I get a message back from him smile.gif

I just placed an order on Amazon after reading the good and bad reviews out there. I'm crossing my fingers for a worthwhile display but it sounds like it'll be a bit of a lottery. What should I be doing / looking for when it arrives? What I've seen so far is the blue banding (should be obvious), poor performance at 100hz, backlight leakage, and dark areas after doing something fullscreen. I found a monitor test tool that I'll try running that should display all those crazy test patterns and do some motion for me to judge behavior, and I'll try some Fallout or something to test gaming performance.

Should any issues be apparent at that point? Any specific tests to run?

here's my experience:




Had 2 monitors,

both september builds,
both had WFS and "scanlines",
standard BLB,
no dead pixels,
both could do 100hz (980ti)

advice:

don't belive ppl who say they don't have "scanlines", especially those who say "my monitor is flawless" - they just trolling you.

After reading about all the faults, don't go buying it with you fingers crossed - that's just being naive.

either don't buy it, or don't cross fingers! wink.gif

I got around to running the Pendulum demo today. I can see the scanlines people talk about here, but they're incredibly faint, I can't even see them without looking less than 1ft at the screen.

I hope it's an issue that gets fixed but practically speaking it's not something I can see without pixel peeping. Even if it got fixed - I don't think I'd even bother with an RMA, unless it got worse over time or something.

Putting things in perspective, even my OLED TV has issues I'd consider worse than these scanlines, like slight banding on near-grey colors. And the PG279Q I tried had awful uniformity that made it almost unusable on the desktop for me (yellow color tint at top 1/3 of screen).

EDIT: I take back what I said regarding TW3 - the artifacts there weren't scanlines but rather banding in the skybox, as I noticed it occurs on my OLED as well. I tried a few other gamse that gives me low FPS (40-60), Just Cause 3, no scanlines. Same with GTA 5

So it seems no actual games exhibit the issue for me.

I wouldn't worry about it. You're right for the most part. The ratio of good to bad monitors VASTLY favors the bad.

This thread has been full of soo many self proclaimed "pros" but not a single issue has been rooted out. Go figure.

Go ahead and add my two to the scanlines pile.

Got a nice surprise today when I received an email telling me an X34 was on the way! Just using it now, overclocked to 95Hz, 100Hz had major flickering, but even at 95Hz I can hear a slight buzzing which wasn't present at the stock refresh rate. Ran the pendulum demo, couldn't notice any scanlines, but then again I'm not sure what to look for exactly. Doesn't seem to be any BLB either, just some normal IPS glow.

I know they're buried in this thread somewhere, but is someone able to re-post any tips for the OSD settings this monitor has? Should I leave Overdrive on normal or turn it up? Already turned DTS off, is there a way to quickly adjust the brightness?
