ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 80

post #791 of 3055
It's definitely an awesome monitor, and while I expect the ASUS unit to have the same issues, I still plan to swap it solely for the warranty and customer service. I called Acer once, and the rep I spoke with was by far the most rude and uninformed jerk I've ever spoke with in a professional sense - it was painfully obvious that he hated his job and hated their clientele even more. Asus on the other hand has always been courteous to my inquiries... I'm also finding myself in need of the swivel more than I thought.

No, it isn't. It was founded by a merger with Acer but has been restructured continuously since. BenQ was its parent company more recently and now are key stakeholders along with their parent company QISDA. Although Acer laid the foundations for the company, what goes on there and what goes on with AUO are completely different worlds.

Out of pure curiousity, what would you like the swivel for?

Are there no larger competitors like a 38" or 40"?

I'm really tempted to pick one of these up, but I'm a little concerned about the size. I'm currently on a 30" (u3014) bracketed on either side by 2x 27"; reducing the vertical size of my main display by over an inch in addition to a lower vertical resolution (1600vs1440) seems like a lot to give up.... MUCH faster refresh rate (60hz vs 100hz; Im an FPS gamer) and seamless ultrawide are the benefits.

Got a quote for that statement?

I have more than a quote. I have industry contacts and clearly a deeper knowledge of the company and its history than yourself. But it's a daft argument to be having anyway, especially as BenQ are essentially a spin-off of Acer anyway. The fact that Acer and their quality control process have nothing whatsoever to do with AUO and their quality control processes, as they are two very separate entities, is an important take-away here though.

My computer area doubles as my living room area, essentially, but the position of my desk usually leaves my guests or myself watching the side of a movie from the couch. While I've been sliding my x34 over a bit in the meantime, it's a daily occurrence and the back end of the stand is near the edge of my desk and could easily slip off if I was careless. I think the swivel would be more secure, and convenient.

Oh woops, swivel actually makes sense.
I was thinking of pivot, since I knew the stand didn't have pivot, and I couldn't see anyone using it in any real-world scenario anyway.

I had no idea the stand didn't have swivel, that's actually quite a shame frown.gif

Haha I can understand how you'd be curious then... That would be some extreme vertical real-estate.

I didn't think the lack of swivel would bother me on the x34, but it definitely does! Spec-wise, this seems to be the only way the ASUS differs other than having weaker speakers (2w vs 7w).

I was a bit disappointed myself that this monitor didn't have swivel adjustment. You'd think it would.

I might swap for the Asus as well. Still expecting it to have the same issues this one does though.
