Wonder if this is being replaced. Both Amazon and Newegg are out of stock on this right now. (available from other sellers at higher prices..)

I don't think so. More likely that they are halting sales and replacing with units that have the updated firmware. That's my opinion.

I have a replacement coming in from Amazon since the OOS 2 weeks ago. Should be here this week. Hope it's not a return since it still shows as temporarily out of stock. :/. Maybe they are still out of stock since they had to send out a bunch of returns biggrin.gif

Just when I thought everything was going swimmingly with this monitor...

Ran into the vertical line in the center issue while playing BF4 the other night. Quit to desktop and the L side of the screen has a clear line that looks like an overlapping image. I was aware this would be a potential issue, but it's disappointing to see it happen on an otherwise perfect monitor. I suppose nobody has had any luck getting Acer to pay for shipping to their facility for a problem with their own product.

This development combined with the fact that the monitor was recently sold new for ~$550 ($200 less than what I paid), likely to quickly clear out the bad firmware stock, is making some serious buyer's remorse set in.

Strongly considering an RMA at this point and giving up on this model altogether.

Does turning your monitor off and then on again solve the issue? The vertical line issue has only happened to me maybe 4 times since I bought it in April and just turning the monitor off / on works for me. Not enough of an issue (yet) to cause me to send the monitor away for lord knows how long for the updated firmware. Moreover, I have to believe over time someone in the community will eventually get his / her hands on the firmware and there will be some method for us to update it ourselves. So many people are affected and frustrated by this.

Yes, it went away after turning the monitor off. I'm going to do some more testing over the next couple of days to see how often this occurs, since I've done very little gaming since I've gotten it. I'm definitely not going to risk sending it to Acer, who knows what I'll get back from them or how long it'll take. The frequency of this glitch is going to be the deciding factor for the return.

Why profile calibration with ColorMunki Display looks red'dish all over the screen with White Point option set to D65?

Need to calibrate white point manually via DisplayCAL (using OSD) and then set ColorMunki white point option to Native. It then slightly changes gamma after calibration, but doesn't add red.

Surprisingly, some game like Witcher 3 look better with that red'dish profile. But in Windows it's looking disturbing.

PS: before buying ColorMunki I have tested other profile from this thread like that one from Crest and it also looked red'dish.

I'd imagine it's because you're used to colors that are far from accurate. The default calibration on monitors and TVs is usually with blue pushed higher than it should be. X-Rite's meters are also bit off, particularly reds and greens, but this is compared to reference meters starting at thousands of dollars. You can always dial red down a little if it's your preference.

but DisplayCAL calibrates white point correctly using the same ColorMunki Display device. it doesn't show any problems with red when interactive calibration via OSD is conducted.

I'd guess it's some difference in the software and whatever standard is being used. You might want to ask about it on the DisplayCAL forum or the Argyll CMS mailing list, I'm sure they can give a much more informed answer than I can.

Edit: My comment about being off on colors is based on some threads over on AVS Forum where people have posted comparisons of very high end meters to 'cheap' spectros like the i1 Pro. The ColorMunki and i1DP are very well regarded meters considering their price points.
