That's not normal, you should RMA most likely.

Looks like Amazon has started to notice the amount of returns you guys are doing:

Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

Funny that it's under review, and the rep said I won't get my replacement til late Feb early March, and yet I just got a text saying they have shipped my 3rd replacement and it will be here Thursday.

I want to believe my 3rd replacement will be decent, but I'm not holding my breath.

That's what happened to me, expected ship date late January and all of a sudden my monitor shipped. Same POS I posted about with photos of box being previously opened. Hopefully you'll get a good one. If you do get an October build, that's not good in my opinion, and be extra cautious.

Yikes... that doesn't sound very promising. Both previous units I got were Oct builds, but neither of them were open box, both came in sealed with the official Acer tape. Can't believe Amazon would send repackaged items like that.

This has been one shady buying experience. mad.gif

So far loving my display but I've found nearly impossible to get 144hz or even 120hz when playing at 1440p with medium/high settings and no AA. Even at 1080p with medium settings getting 144hz is a no go. My games: Just Cause 3 and Modern Warfare. Need to do more testing. I thought my 2 GTX980Ti on SLI could deliver the task. Anyway, playing with GSYNC + 85-95hz it's wonderful.

Sometimes I think you actually don't need 60hz + monitors but only a "regular" 60hz GSYNC monitor letting GSYNC do all the magic.

With similar GPUs like mine, in which games and setting have you actually got 144hz gaming?

Some companies send you returns from others, hoping you won't mind. I would never accept a previously opened box.

If your monitor ships "early", you know what to expect... mad.gif

I place much of the blame on Acer, not Amazon. Granted, a torn box should've raised an eyebrow at Amazon. Amazon just gets the retail boxes and packs them up to ship. It is Acer being shady and re-packaging a returned monitor and sending it back to Amazon to sell. Total BS.

Just ordered my 7th XB1, this time from Frys, delivers Thursday. Right after I got the confirmation email the item availability on the website changed to "expected stock Feb 8" so not sure that's a good sign. I will flip if I get another one with dead pixels, and / or a unit that shows signs of being used. I'll try to stay positive! My 7th XB1 will be the one, I know it.

Haven't really kept up with this thread.. but does anyone else have power button issues? Like sometimes it can take up to roughly 3 presses to power ON/OFF?

I have the power savings off.
