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.

Whites are great, using tfts recommended settings. Sent my pg279q back due to uniformity, tons better on the x34, no yellowing or any noticable white temp change at all.

Hey all,

First things first, I don't have a nice camera to take a picture of my setup, so I won't be posting a pic. Anyways. I received my monitor about 5 days ago now and resisted making this post for a while to let the honeymoon phase wear off a little bit. I'm ecstatic to report that my monitor doesn't have any of the coil whine, mesh image, failed OC, or severe backlight bleed problems. It looks amazing and OC'd right to 100hz out of the box. 21:9 is an absolute dream, I'm super glad I didn't go the 4k 60hz route. I've played a few games on it including Tomb Raider 2013, Crysis 3, and Just Cause 2. Let me just say that they look absolutely stunning. Just know that you'll need a monster rig to handle all those pixels being refreshed at 100hz. SLI 980ti's are perfect for this beast, but 2x 980's would also be fine unless you wanted to max everything (I only turn down AA since it's such a resource hog).

The curve is subtle, but very much noticeable. It's nice that every point of the screen is equidistant from your position. G-sync is pretty cool too, but I don't see large FPS dips thanks to the 980ti's pumping out frames like crazy. You'll probably wanna wall mount this one since the base, although very sturdy and attractive, is very heavy and deep as other reviewers have mentioned. Plus a wall mount makes the underglow lighting look really nice, I'm using a cheap $15 mount from amazon and it can hold the panel up no problem. The menu is a little funky, but not too bad to get used to once you know what you're doing. I haven't watched any movies shot at an ultrawide resolution, but I'm sure it would be quite a site to see! Youtube and other 16:9 content will be displayed with large black bars on the left and right sides of the screen but it's a trade off for the extra real estate. Productivity is a big plus too, there's plenty of room for two windows side by side.

Pros:
Picture quality w/ IPS panel
G-Sync
100hz
21:9
Curved screen
Underglow lighting
VESA support
Very thin bezels on the top and sides (lower bezel is also thin)

Cons:
$ Price $
Very slight backlight bleed
One small spot had a 1mm gap on the top of the monitor where the front and back bezel met (almost didn't notice it)
Glossy plastic on the backside

Summary:
If you're in the market for a new monitor, you have a lot of coin to spare, and you have the rig to power it...this could be the perfect monitor for you! ACER's QA gods smiled upon me with this monitor, I can safely say that it's worth the stupid high price for me.

9.5/10 from me

Yeah that's awesome. Buying mine next week as my own Christmas gift. Contacted a local seller and he said the latest stock that arrived in December has a manufacturing date of November. Hopefully these are the new units with most of the issues already fixed.

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.

Please follow up have a Dell 30' also and got the same itch for a 34'

Thanks for the info. I have a back-order with Newegg so I hope when they do ship my order I get one from the newer batch as well.

I really didn't have much intention on getting one until I saw the 34" samsung at my local Memory express. It had JC3 playing and looked relly good. I figured G-sync, 100hz etc, screw it and gave it a go lol.
I will poat my impressions the day I get it setup and calibrated.

I am considering buying X34 in January after 4 PG279Q and 2 XB271HU I gave up on AUO panels.

Now can someone tell me how is BLB compare to those and if anyone here have X34 that DO NOT have any orange tint/BLB in corners but only nice silver IPS glow/BLB?

Thank you.

I wanted to report that the scanlines are becoming worse. I have been playing SWBF for hours and hours now and with my titan X the game never dips below 70-80 fps other than at the loading screen where it goes down to 50fps. The panel is OC'd to 100Hz and NVCP is set to 100Hz also. Previously, I only noticed the scanlines in the game at the loading screen but now I can see the lines very well even during the game as it dips to ~75fps. I've had the monitor now for about 45 days.

Scanlines Problem: Faint horizontal lines on the monitor when G-sync is ON.

(You'll have to select the text and click 'go-to' to make the links work)

Behaviour: I decided to do some investigation and found that it was not related to the G-sync VRR operation at all. I made a writeup about it. http://www.overclock.net/t/1573121/acer-predator-x34-displays-show-your-images-or-experience-here/370#post_24609304

Solutions: None. I started by suspecting adapter using the 80s logic of lines on tv screen --> ripple on DC power. It went nowhere but here is my post on that http://www.overclock.net/t/1573121/acer-predator-x34-displays-show-your-images-or-experience-here/390#post_24612830

To the new comers to this thread:

Ugg, maybe I will just give up on this monitor all together. From what you are reporting..... even if I get one without scanlines whats stopping them from happening a year from now. Really making me nervous.

Funny, I said the same thing about a month ago in acers official forums and my post was deleted and I was perma banned for not adding anything to the community discussion.

It is also why I will be cramming these back down their throats. I'm on my 3rd, and 4th incoming.
