More so considering they are nearly 10% cheaper the the pg348q panel. If they perform similar don't mind jumping on it now then waiting for pre orders for this.

Heh both the x34 and pg348qs stands look meh. Give me the clean stand on the 34UC97 or 34UC98 any day biggrin.gif
I'm speculating that there is somekind of difference in product code in package or maybe in revision number, but I can't say for sure, I think you should ask from retailer (Of course they can lie and sell you first batch display, but thankfully there are honest retailers at least where I live...)

Acer stand looks much nicer to my eye than the "transformers" stand in PG348Q (looks kinda childish...)

I don't care about the stand, I'm not going to use it anyways. I have a MX Desk Stand for the monitor when it arrives. I have other things I need to put under the monitor - switch box, speakers, A&K120Mk2, etc. The stand just takes up room on the desktop.

Here you can see a real ACERish issue :

This is probably an artefact mentioned in PG348Q user manuel :

When the same image is displayed for hours, an afterimage of the previous
screen may remain after switching the image. The screen will recover slowly or
you can turn off the Power Switch for hours.

The problem is that the display never got back to normal, even after 14 hours power off.

The next page of that thread, you'll see some pictures of PG348Q scanlines wink.gif

But this is Asus ROG we are talking about... Asus ROG uses special edition LG panels and special Gsync modules that are better than the ones used in other monitors and are made specially for Asus (according to metros)

Sure, one person, shall we wait for more users to report this issue before saying "every monitor is going to get this issue" we need to wait for more samples, not seen the Chinese forum report these issues and they were the first to get the monitor.

Also I will refer to what SRplus said, if he can only see it by a picture and we can see it, then it is caused by moire patterning

It is ridiculous how people say things like "set the new bar for 21:9" its the same monitor as the X34 with some minor differences, literally the same panel made by LG and the same Gsync from Nvidia with a different badge and case and possibly some minor other differences inside, X34 already "set the bar for 21:9"... this is the same monitor.

Except for the fact that we haven't seen a single Asus monitor not hit 100hz. Thus making the Asus better and setting the bar.

I can only speak for my self and the x34´s ive tried (two of them, both made in november 2015) had problems with the hz, one reached 90hz and one got to 95hz, that was the only problem with the x34´s but that also was a deal breaker for me. The pg348q got to 100hz at once no problems what so ever. Is that worth an extra ~$100 ? YES for me it is. Maybe not for everyone but for me it is.

Bottom line for me x34 vs pg348q: winner is pg348q cause it made it to the 100hz where x34 did not.

If one of the two x34 had made it to 100hz i would have stayed with the Acer, but after two x34´s i was done with Acer for this time around.

Wrong. We have. And it's only JUST been released. X34 has been out for months. You can't make sweeping statements like this, it's just absurd.
