Cleaned. Please keep the discussion on the monitor itself.

But I'd rather deal with Amazon even if it's more money. Mine is arriving Friday

VERY happy. Came from two 1080p panels. Gaming on 1, with random stuff going on the other.

I'm loving all the screen area on one frame. You don't have to minimize programs.

The picture is stunning. With the widescreen, you feel much more immersed in each game.

If you have the money, it's a great screen.

Monitor has now been sent off for a refund for the last time. I honestly don't think ACER has any intention to fix the scanline issue and now there is some competition on the way so I have options.

Shout outs to the following folks, it's been a great few months bouncing ideas / troubleshooting with you:

drfish
x3sphere
Smokey the Bear
-terabyte-
funfordcobra
Scoobydooby11

and a special thank you to Mountainlifter for trying harder than anyone to get the scanline issue resolved, wish it worked out.

I will be hopping on the PG348Q thread soon, perhaps some of us will be chatting again hopefully not with the same issues haha. If the ASUS is as big as a disappointment as the X34 I'm just going to settle for the $500 Monoprice one coming out that has the same panel minus Freesync/G-Sync and @75hz. Maybe use the remainder to get a HTC Vive. Best wishes to all!

What period of time did you do the repetitive RMA's?

The reason I ask, is I believe this batch dropping on the 18th or so is actually the first new batch since the recall. There is a very real chance that your retailer was just re-boxing other RMAed, recalled monitors and sending them to you on your RMA's. So you were repeatedly getting the same busted monitors over and over again.

1st one was Oct 29th 2nd one was Dec 7th, both were September builds. These were not returns unless Newegg found out a way to put Acer tape back on it and put all the plastic covers in the exact place and package up the cables from the manufacture. These were not RMA's they were refunds then a new order was placed a week or so later.

There were people reporting scanline issues from November builds, they aren't fixing the issue. If they were I am certin they would be shouting with joy in their forums like they did with the wake from sleep and color banding issue resolution.

All the sept. builds were subject to the recall. So yeah, you were sending a faulty product, only to get another faulty product from the same faulty batch.

Talked to the guys up at microcenter, and they had 50 of them in stock, had them all recalled (was when they were first released), sent them back to Acer and still havven't gotten any new ones in yet. Provantage rep told me last week the next shipment from the factory wasn't going to show up until the 18th, so it's safe to assume anything prior to this new shipment has a very real probability of being one of the faulty units.

My X34 can only do 95Hz. I tired multiple DP cables thick/short too and can't get 100Hz. I also tested on 2 systems 3way SLI Titan X and 2 way SLI Titan X, and in all scenario, it limited to 95Hz. Am I missing a setting or just have a subpar screen?

The "fault" being the WFS issue and not related to scan lines.
