I expect ACER still have involvement with AU Optronics, so it still applies, we know AU Optronics has terrible QC

What issues are you talking about?

I admit Acer was to blame for blue banding & wake from sleep issues but it's not a problem anymore.
The remaining one concerns horizontal scanlines when OC & Gsync are functionning together (though very faint scanlines can be noticeable at 100hz on the desktop) and we'll see when PG348Q comes out if it's a QC or just a hardware problem related to panel and/or Gsync running at their limits.

Honestly, I'm pretty sure PG348Q won't be spared by scanlines, but I really hope I'm wrong wink.gif

Is there a way to tell which monitors have the old firmware vs the new firmware?

Planning on picking one up, but I wanna make sure it wasn't an old firmware unit that got returned after x-mas instead of a fresh one with the new firmware.

Units with the old FW have the blue banding issue, the FW was updated to fix specifically that issue. The wake from sleep issue instead required a hardware replacement fix.

I mean like on the model numbers and such to check in the store before I leave with it.

I don't think there is any way to check that unless you turn on the monitor itself and enter the service menu or test the banding. I might be wrong though.

Acer has now posted their comments on some issues here:
http://community.acer.com/t5/Predator-Discussions/MULTIPLE-Problems-with-New-X34/m-p/406530#M2863

Basically here is what they say:

Wake from Sleep (Backlight) - Send it in for the fix

Color Banding - Send it in for the fix

Problems with Overclocking at 100hz - They say up to 100hz, so even if your monitor only does 65hz, its considered normal

Coil Whine - This is normal and not a defect according to them:
"This is caused by the strain and release of a capacitor that is designed to absorb electical charges from the powering of the device. That release from the capacitor can cause vibrations which can be audible in certain environments. This activity is considered normal and does not require any action from the user or Acer."

Scanlines - Currently being evaluated

So I haven't checked in with this forum for quite a while. I was posting a few months back before I had gotten mine.. I'm just wondering, how is everyones panel that has received them? I got my acer x34 about 3 weeks ago, and have been using it extensively and Ive got to say, its absolutely incredible. Thankfully I haven't had any of the reported issues at all. It overclocks to 100hz perfectly and man do games look incredible at 3440x1440 maxed out at 100hz.

Also, its hilarious to me that I see this metros dude is STILL here going on about asus lolol. I literally haven't been here for months, and that's what he was doing then... anyway, just a hilarious observation for me. lol.. anyone else with the monitor, how is your experience?

Mine has Blb in the upper left, lower left and upper right corner. Not enough to bnother me though.
It runs at 100 hz with no issues and running the demo I dont see any scanlines. Maybe I dont know exactly what im lookign for haha.

All in all I like this monitor and will be my daily driver for awhile. No way I can go back to my 4k monitor.....

are you sure its back light bleed? That is very different from IPS glow. Also, what demo are you talking about for scanlines?
