ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 83

post #821 of 3056
When now some of you are actually noticing the fact here, ACER QC is terrible.

Also I would not take what ASUS puts on their website as 100 percent, they might have just missed the "up to" part, however they might have changed it since IFA, due to all the complaints about it the "up to" part, if it is 100hz (without changing it) then that will be really good

It is £1000 here and has a release date of early February, OCUK is normally more expensive, so I think it will be around £980-£990

That twisted stand is quite hideous compared to the Predator stand IMO.

I will give one more predator a try and if it doesn't have a solid 100Hz I will be sending it back for an ASUS preorder. ProVantage has been awesome so far dealing with swapping out the X34- a great first experience using them.

I like the new colours, I think the stand is great however it could have been better

So you're the reason I'm waiting on the back order list!

Was gonna pick one up at micro-center since they just got some stock in, then I realized it's like $300 dollars more expensive after taxes to pick it up at a retailer so I'll grit my teeth and bare it.

My x34 is arriving tomorrow. It was on backorder at newegg, so I can assume it's a newer unit. I'll post back with any issues.

Haha! Sorry! The first time I placed my order with them it was "out of stock" and it shipped the next day. Fedex actually delivered it before ProVantage gave me a tracking number.

I facepalm every time people say "I have no issues with my unit besides minor BLB and only hitting 95hz!!!" Lmaooo

It took me 7 units to find a good one that I MAY keep. (Linus tech review quality) That's 10,000 USD in returns. Suck on that acer. Although, they will just send them right back out lmao..

Anyway, I'll keep this for a year if no more issues turn up. Sell the junk and get the next big thing. If the Asus is good (which I doubt) I'll try it..

Im just glad to know to avoid acer for the rest of my builds. They are the absolute lowest quality that I have owned or delt with in customer service.

The only thing that scares me is that many more problems very likley start popping up the longer you have it over clocked.

Lesson learned as I hope alot of others have too.

Thank you for posting your experience with Provantage. I may order a x34 from them but I'm not familiar with that company. Would prefer to order from Amazon but they seem all to willing to let 3rd parties jack up the price for no reason other than availability issues. The Provantage price is excellent before shipping and I'll not have to pay tax at the time of order.

I was worried kinda when I placed the order. When Fedex delivered it before I was notified it was shipped I was like BAM. When I called their customer service and talked to the nicest person ever, gave me a prepaid return label, placed a new order for me without putting a hold on my CC and let me keep this X34 until the new one arrives (which is on backorder) I would kiss Amazon goodbye for any other big tech purchase.

What issues did you experience other than the overclock I assume? Also did you try another DP cable? I am not in any way implying you did anything incorrect or defending ACER.

I know FunFordCobra has told me it is not the cable but I'll be buying an Accell cable since I read in the reviews for the cable that it was needed to carry the full speed of data needed to be sent to the monitor.
A review stated that when they used another dp cable that they just got a blank screen or flickering when setting the overclock to 100.
