ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 67

post #661 of 3066
Anyone suggest something to run on this monitor to be wowed by it? I got it and one of the new Swifts side by side and for 1200USD it's not all that impressive over the swift. But I think it's because I've never used an ultra wide before and so far have to fiddle with every game I run on it to get it to display correctly.

I've been playing Just Cause 3 on it and it looks amazing.

Because of the size or just because it's IPS?

I had an ultrawide before, LG 34UM95, so I'm used to the size now but it did impress me a lot when I first got it - still does. I tried a PG279Q and it was hard to make the transition down to a 27" 16:9, 21:9 just feels a lot more immersive to me.

G-Sync and 100 Hz is what blew me away with this monitor though, the increase in motion clarity on a big display is really noticeable - for some reason I notice it more than I did on the PG279Q even though that was higher Hz.

Yeah I am just looking for a reason to keep it since I can only get one of them so it's the swift or the pred so I am trying to find something to blow me away enough to keep the bigger screen.

If the ultrawide real estate, awesome color and great smooth gaming performance all together isn't wowing enough for you, I'd say stick with the ROG Swift and save yourself some cash.

Just placed a back-order for this baby on Newegg hope I can snag one from a newer batch when they do come in. Going to keep my fingers crossed, maybe they will get more stock soon and it can arrive by Christmas but I doubt it.

I ordered one on Amazon on Sunday, expected delivery was today and now they're saying there is no stock and they have no idea when it will be stocked again.

How is the uniformity on both screens? I had a PG279Q and along with bad bleed mine had awful uniformity - an all-white screen was nothing of the sort. The top third of the screen was tinted yellow/brown and I had grey patches in all corners. I've heard that the X34 is better in this regard?

Also, I imagine the real estate would be amazing for work. I often have an IDE on one screen and whatever I'm building on the other - with this monitor I could bin the old secondary screen (which always gives me multi-monitor headaches...) and just have one screen.

I ordered 1 last night, should ship out today or tomorrow from NCIx, they had 3 in stock. I will post my findings. I bought the 30 day cross ship replacement as well. If it doesn't work out, I'm gonna give the Z35 a shot for fun.
My current monitor is the Dell 3011U and it's been an awesome monitor, I don't plan on getting rid of it. i will keep it for another PC.
