As I said earlier, The more I think about it, with the next gen of GPU's supporting DP1.3 launching in a few months, and new 100hz / 144hz 3440 x 1440 monitors being released later in the year ( supposedly DP 1.3 ), I am hesitant to pre-order, and think that Acer and Asus are trying to squeeze the last drop of performance they can out of DP 1.2, but at a very high price, and we will be paying high premiums for the bad yield rates out of the factory like most newly released TV's or monitors.

But even after saying all that... STILL SO TEMPTED !! :-)))

From what I have heard from the peeps at Scan, pre-orders are still very low ATM.

I think speculation can only get us so far, so for me its time to sit back and wait for the reviews that will hit the net in 10 days time, maybe sooner...

Maybe Asus have been trying to iron out the bugs before launch, or maybe Asus are just very slow at bringing products to market, and it will be plagued by all the same problems as the X34, probably the latter, but just useless speculation again... so time to wait...

Do not expect any 3440x1440p 144hz monitors this year, I made a post about this earlier, look page a 1-2 pages

Also the Samsung 3440x1440p 100hz will be Freesync and do not expect it soon, as Samsung did not announce it at CES

My Acer XB1 is wonderful as a display for my PS4 (though my main use is for my PC) and I found that it is the best device I have ever used with any console! Very low if ever input lag and no motion blur whatsoever plus great brightness. I hope the X34 and/or the Asus equivalent are just as good in that matter.

Same line of thinking here. Been mulling over it for the last few days and just cancelled my pre-order. Already have a 3440 x 1440 panel and while only 60hz my next few months will most likely be taken up by XCOM for which 60hz is not an issue as such. decisions decisions redface.gif

The odds of seeing a 100/144hz 3440x1440 monitor this year is near zero; they would have ben announced already... Q1/Q2 2017 at the absolute earliest is my guess, and that's aggressive.

The other thing on my mind is, do I really need G-sync?

My 4 titans already run very title on ultra setting without any microstutter or tearing. This wasn't the case running windows 7 pro X64, but even then it was only on a sect few titles like skyrim, Bioshock infinite and Metro last light, since upgrading to windows 10 Pro, even those titles run amazingly smooth..

I could buy 2x Dell U3415W for almost the same price as the PG348Q, and there is the MX34 coming from Asus which is rumoured to be at a very competitive price, using the same panel as the PG348Q but obviously no G-sync.

Obviously the 3440 x 1400 resolution will tax my GPU's more than my current 1920 x 1200 monitors.

The PG348Q is a beautiful looking monitor IMO, but is it really worth spending £2K on two, or forgetting g-sync and spending £1.1K on two U3415W's? that's almost 1K just for g-sync...

OK its unlikely the 144hz 3440 x 1440 panels will be in any products in 2016, but why spend 2K to use for one year then possibly regret it later?

My main priority is work, then gaming, then movies when choosing a monitor, and with the launch of true Ultra HD- Blu ray media and players this year, is it wise to be buying a 1440p monitor if you use your system for all purposes like I do?

When the media starts to gain popularity, you will be watching all that glorious 4K content downscaled! Ultra wide 4K monitors are in the works, so maybe best to wait...

Sure there's only about 5 titles in UHD-blu ray for pre-order at the moment, but there are hundreds planed by this time next year so a true 4k ultra wide sounds like a much more future proof option...

But still tempted! :-P

I'd disagree, an announcement in Q3 and release in Q4 is possible. I mean the X34 was announced back in like May/June I believe, and released in September/October.

You probably aren't going to see anything new from Asus until Q1 or Q2 2017 though, considering they are just getting around to releasing the PG348Q.

Based on the possibility that new 21:9 IPS monitors at 144+hz could come next year it's why instead of buying the Asus I'm going to buy the X34 assuming it would cost lest than the Asus. If I want to enjoy a 21:9 IPS Gsync until those other new monitors come (if ever) I rather do it with the cheapest one based that in what counts (display) we're talking the same.

Of course, right now I so want to play now that being that there seems to be no X34 monitors available in the US, if the Asus monitor comes available sooner I would buy the Asus one.

Don't know why Acer hasn't ship any new X34 monitors yet!

I just want to join the ultra wide screen master race. G-Sync options taking too long. Almost tempted to get a Wasabi Mango UHD430 but I really just want this monitor or the X34.
