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.
