Does having a stuck pixel mean that i could find more over time? And what are the odds of getting a better monitor than the one i have now? Considering BLB and colour are near perfect? Please reply!!!

Only you can make the decision to keep vs return. I am in the minority I think, I don't put up with a single dead or stuck pixel. Not at this price point. I'd be more worried if you see a cluster of stuck pixels, which you don't have. Chances are fairly good that it won't lead to more stuck pixels but I'm not certain. I went through 10+ monitors before getting a keeper. A replacement could arrive with dead pixels, more BLB, and terrible uniformity. If your retailer has a good return / exchange policy you could try to exchange, but it's a lottery.

If I reboot it goes back to normal. It even was happening outside of the game as I went to reboot. Now it just happened with anothe game..

Did I get a bad panel?

Thanks for any help!

You didn't get a bad panel. This issue affects a lot of people. You will see a lot of people posting about it in this thread / forum. There is a firmware update in the works at Acer to fix it. That's a whole other story, you can check the official Acer forums about it. It's a joke. We need to send our monitors to Acer to get the firmware updated. When I get the vertical line issue it goes away if I power off / on the monitor. Hopefully some awesome user will obtain the firmware at some point and the community will find a way for us to do it without sending our monitors away. My monitor isn't leaving my sight. Not after all the time I've spent trying to get a good one.

Jlp0209 wow thanks for that info. I was hoping that something like this was the case (a known issue rather than just mine being bad).

Well dang I will just keep my eyes on the thread and hope for the best. Otherwise it's the best monitor I've ever had by a long shot!

Where are people buying this? It's been sold out for like a month+ every time I've looked.

Try overclocking the monitor. I had this problem too, but OC to 165Hz "fixed" it. At least it serves as a temporary fix, until the FW update is ready. You don't have to go all the way to 165Hz,at 150Hz i never saw any pixel displacement either.

JLP is right on all counts. Acer's CS is bad by all accounts. If you bought it retail your best bet is exchanging it there, if you decide to do so. I'd say it depends on how much you care about the dead pixel.

Retail stores would be my guess.

Hello Stuntex!

Thank you so much for this suggestion, I am trying it now. So far so good.... I've never run a monitor above 144 hz before, theoretically it should be even smoother then at 144 eh? Is anyone running it at the full 165? 150 seems good to me!

EDIT: I upped it to 165 hz, heck why not right? Seems great! wink.gif Any reason NOT to run it at 165hz? Could it somehow hurt the monitor? I am guessing not since it says it will do 165hz right on the box...

My local micro center has like 10+ in stock here in Colorado.

Nice CRT though, I've never had one near that good biggrin.gif.

Really? Is this like the pinnacle of CRT monitors or something before LCD took over and that market died?


I've been using the Acer now for about 2 weeks, it's amazing play FO4 and movies, etc. But shooters I'm seeing that ghosty-tearing and it makes me feel more and more confident about returning it even though the monitor is perfect in the BLB/dust/dead pixel world.

Anything that supports 2048x1536 @ 75hz+ is pretty darn good as far as I'm aware. LaCie Electron Blue IV and the Sony FW-900 are pretty much as good as it gets for standard and widescreen respectively.

Maybe it's the games or an in-game setting causing it? I'd try turning off options like motion blur. Maybe give Quake or UT a spin and see if those have the problem as well. I'd keep the Acer if it doesn't have any problems, the tube will go out on your CRT sooner or later and it's likely impossible to source a replacement now.

retail stores like Frys or Microcenter. Or using those stock alert websites and buying on amazon/newegg/etc
