I got some pictures coming tomorrow with some gaming pictures on Saturday

I will get my EK Predator 360mm on Saturday, so I can actually use the monitor

Got my report back from Scan on my ASUS PG348Q

"I’ve now had it confirmed that our Quality control team have fully tested your monitor for you:

- They have confirmed none of the pixels are damaged/stuck or dead.

- The monitor was benchmarked in Firestrike on one of our Cyclone SLI systems, and ran at a stable 100Hz refresh rate with no issues relating to coil whine or stuttering.

- One of the QC members did mention that there was a slight bit of IPS glow coming from the bottom of the monitor, but he had to look very hard to spot it, it shouldn’t affect your performance or usage, (and as I’m sure you know every monitor – especially IPS panels will suffer from a little bit of IPS glow, hence the name, you never get a monitor that’s 100% perfect!).

- As I mentioned before, another QC team member came over too and double checked everything for you, I’m afraid they didn’t take a picture as they’re a bit busy too and the camera’s were taken up already for photographing systems going on to testing tonight."

Also the monitor has just been sent, I will pay for 10.30am delivery

Hey Metros, bother to ask Scan if they can ship to Brazil, please? I'm away from a PC and pretty busy right now. Scan seems to be an awesome store, apparently they can even test the hardware before shipment.

Yeah part of the reason I didnt pull the trigger on the X34 today. Too many QC issues. Atleast the 4K 32inch monitor I'm looking at has a pretty reliable BenQ screen.

They only tested the monitor for me (as I spent near £6K in the a month) they do not normally do it. I cannot ask Scan now, as they are closed, however they do not ship to the US, they only ship to the UK and Europe, so I expect they will not ship to your location

I have to agree it seems much much better than the X34. Cant wait until this pops up on newegg.

IMO you're better off buying a normal 34" 21:9 without g-sync and the 100 hz overclock for less than half the price of this PG348Q.


I can't speak for everyone, but for me, a monitor isn't just for games, if it were, I would probably go with the 1080p version @144. The 1440p version @ 100, I've been told, will make normal windows look better. Yes I play games, but I also edit photos and cut video together of games. I want something that does it all well. I've considered the lower price monitors without gsync and have gone back and forth many times on it.

However, I use a monitor 8+ hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week. My last monitor a Dell 24 IPS ($800 when I bought it), I've had for a decade. So from the cost per hour of use perspective, the additional cost is irrelevant. What is $300 or $400 more if it is truly better over the course of its lifetime?
