But this thread isn't one that I feel inspires a person to buy one, have you read this thread in its entirety?

Thats not how it works and you being on this forum, should know that. People come to forums to complain, they seek them out to vent their frustration with the situation. We all do it, this thread is VERY clear that thats pretty much all it's about.
People that are happy with their units are enjoying them and not posting on the forums. I sent one back because it didn't hit 100hz and got another one that does. that was the only issue with the first one. A bit of IPS glow with both but nothing worth sending them back. In the end, it's by a large margin, the best monitor I've ever had (coming from my Dell 3011U)

I'll never take anyone seriously that has only posted in ONE thread.

No absolutely I know that. I wasn't sayin it in terms of people simply complaining to complain, but in using a gauge for a 900 to 1200 purchase we use reviews and opinions to gather our mindset on what we want to do. And reading this thread has more people frustrated it seems, which is a shame, as I'd rather be reading more folks happy with their product is all.. So that's my stance on it.

I been buying gear and building machines since 1990, and I simply get frustrated more these days with the lack of quality coming from companies with display units in particular. They just seem they have little care in putting out quality units, just seems every monitor these days have major issues in one form or another snd that's why making choices become harder.

For this monitor, absolutely I know there are people enjoying it... But I guess when I use forums I hope too run into a higher percentage reporting in enjoying their items than the other way around, since it's what I'm using as a gauge. That's all mainly.

The Predator X34 is a really good monitor if you're lucky enough to get one without these f**kiing annoying scanlines that appear when FPS drift away from the frequency you set in the OSD.
I tried up to 5 monitors for 2 months and all of them had scanlines (with OC & Gsync ON). Also, I could see them in the desktop at 100hz by moving a plain color box over the screen, though it's less prominent than in 3D.

All X34 I got weren't equally affected by these scanlines and the last one was the better and had no BLB, really good color uniformity and no coil whine.
But at 40-50fps, scanlines were really visible in Witcher 3, for example.

At 3 weeks from the PG348Q launch date, I think it's a better option to wait and see if it's "scanlines free" but honestly, I have doubts about that. Same panel and same Gsync unit.

I've gone through 7 myself, so people that say that there is a large amount of good units out there is completely asinine or they are completely ignorant to computer displays. No matter how many zeniths you bought in 86..

I can see how after spending this much on a display any little defect would be annoying. That's why the 95Hz bothers me.

For me though the scanlines are not a big deal at all. I really have to put mine in a specific circumstance/settings that I don't see 99% of the time and then actively try to look for them. I don't think I would ever leave a game at settings that would let run consistently below 50fps.

If the choice is Acer or ASUS both with IPS, 21:9, gsync and 100Hz, and they both have the same panel with scanlines I still rank the experience of this screen far above any I have ever owned. On top of that this was cheaper than my Ultrasharp 3008WFP and U2711s.

Mine has the scanlines as well (though apart from the G-Sync demo, I've not been able to notice them in normal use). I still rank this monitor above any other one I have owned, and by a large margin (LG UM95, PG279Q, and Dell 3008WFP). If you want a problem free monitor well one doesn't exist at the moment, even the $3K+ OLEDs are not perfect. Just read the OLED threads at AVS, they are full of complaints on vignetting and DSE.

I think I can feel a similarity between display fanatics and audiophiles. Don't mean that in a negative way, some people just like things the way they like em. I am sure if I went back and look at my 3008WFP the day I got it and evaluated it the same way I have been the X34 I would find way more flaws.

Well I got my new monitor setup, I have running currently the XB271HU...just got it a little bit ago and fired it up. And again I had a 1440 ips monitor that I felt was pretty awesome for the time ive used it, in comparison I definitely like this monitor...I might have to switch to my old one just to compare a bit more, but I mean I like this monitor...however I'm not 100% sure yet that the jump from my 1440p to this is worth the 900 bones, again I think in game its looking awesome but I'm not sure if I'm getting that wow pop factor that I was looking for in a 900 buck upgrade.

So heres my question, did anyone here order the XB271HU...get it, end up sending it back for an X34 and found the X34 to be the better overall purchase?
