This unit is probably as good as it's going to get anyways.
Yep, this problem sucks and makes this panel not so worth the money. I'm noticing it more and more, but it's always present on one side of my screen. I hope Acer and/or Nvidia become aware of this issue but I doubt they will fix it - it was present on the Swift as well but subtle underneath the inversion. It makes GSYNC look like a bad joke, and kills the purpose of having an OCable panel to 100hz with an added $200 GSYNC module. With these kinds of effects, there shouldn't be an added cost.

I don't understand can't you return it with ncix if it's defect until you get a good one

I don't think any of my issues are bad enough to warrant a return to NCIX. I'm probably making it sound a lot worse than it is. Returns with ncix tend to be on the slow side as well. The reason I mention doing returns with Newegg is they are much bigger and would approve an rma for basically anything, in my experiences, as well as covering fairly quick return shipping. They would then send a replacement unit the same way I paid, where I think NCIX sends it back via ground.

I doubt a replacement would be better in any way, and I am overall happy with it. I was just bummed when I first thought of missing out on a safety net of sorts.

$1899AUD I play a lot of DCS World. Is an awesome monitor for that. The one i got has no problems at all. Expensive but that's PC gaming. The US dollars making things a lot worse though. I soon l don't even know why tech is pegged to the USD anyway. Also Acer Asus what's the difference. I have never considered asus any good. Have had many junk products. Graphics cards and motherboards from them and there CS sucks.

I can put max 50 hz in settings, and when im going advanced settings, i can find that acer x34 Location: on Intel HD Graphics 4000.
Can i change that so monitor can work from my 680m GTX somehow? and will it affect my hz in a positive way? to make it at least 60 hz?

I cant seem to find where i can change that, if at all. Thank you

You can change it in nvidia control panel. Just assign the 680 as primary device.

So weird about the scan lines. I wonder what the catalyst is. I haven't had that problem what so ever.
post #77 of 3066
does anyone have these in stock right now? Anyone have any suggestions on where to buy?
post #78 of 3066
Thanks! if i deactivate display driver via device manager, x34 losing signal, i just cant seems like to find where can i attach x34 to 680m, ive been looking at nvidia control panel but cant see it where i can change this.

Ive got 3D settings there with three options 1.Adjust image settings with preview 2. manage 3D settings and 3. Set PhysX Configuration.

I can choose manage 3D settings and there i can select the preferred graphfics processor for this program (here goes the list of programs) but i cant seems like to find a monitor.

sorry for my incompetence lol

Are any of you guys using a monitor mount with your x34?
If so what ones?
I'm looking for one as I don't have a deep desk and it sits way to far toward because of the stand.
post #80 of 3066
I went with this one since I needed a skinny base. I don't have the monitor yet though so can't attest to how well it works.
