Acer Predator Z35: Curved 35" VA G-Sync 200Hz 21:9 Monitor - Page 11

Also it's a shame about those peak response times, because if you look at the other transitions, the Z35 at 200 Hz can be lightning fast (well under 4 ms).

But the 20-55 ms response times are just a by product of this AMVA panel. Look at how well the Philips BDM4065UC does in TFTCentral's review with regards to response times especially with no overdrive. It's 4k 60 Hz and faster than the Z35 at any refresh rate, and faster than the 120 Hz 1080p Eizo Foris FG2421. No 55 ms response time peak, only one 18 ms peak. This combined with how well high end SPVA TVs fare in response times have me convinced if someone tried they could make a 1440p 120-144 Hz VA panel with overdrive and very good response times all around.

Unfortunately nobody has reviewed the XZ350CU yet but I'm sure it will have the same issues as it has got to be the same panel, so the response time will be very similar.

The ghosting/blurring issue was fixed by reverting to the older Nvidia driver 358.91 reported by people using the unit.

Must be another issue. You can never have too many with a gaming monitor!

LOL! Totally!

Does anybody here who owns the Z35 also own a colorimeter?
post #105 of 259

Really throwing the idea around if I want to pick this up or not. I'm currently on a 2560x1440p @ 110Hz. However, I really hate that I practically have to squint to read text/icons on it. Games look a bit crisper than 1080p but its not that much of an increase. Even with scaling turned up, it still seems that the text isn't as crisp as it would be without the scaling.

 

I wonder when my local Microcenter will have this in stock so I can compare it to the X34 Predator.

 

Anyone who has gone from a 27 inch 1440p to this, comment on it? Regrets? Comments? Ect.

I can't comment on games because I gamed on a fast 1080p TN panel before this but as for desktop I've had trouble with reading text on 1440p and 4K monitors and found scaling to not always be helpful or to always work right (I don't have the best eyesight, but not to terrible either). I'm not doing any kind of critical work on my Z35 but I find it very easy to read and see icons, even when I split the screen up in half.

I believe Robilar used a 1440p 144hz panel for everything before he got his Z35, he should have good insight (I think he talks some about it in this thread or the other Z35 thread).

I had the ROG Swift which was 1440P/144hz. I definitely prefer the Z35 to that monitor. The ROG was an excellent TN but the color is definitely more vibrant on the Z35 with it's VA panel.

Hey folks, i ve ordered Z35
Coming from a Benq XL2420G, 24'', 16/9, 1080p, i hope i will enjoy the huge display and 21/9
It will be also my first non TN panel screen monitor
I was accepting less all downsides from TN overtime, awful viewing angles, poor contrast, bad colorimetry...
IPS has too many qc issues to be my personal choice, that why i choose VA panel over IPS.
2580*1080 is not that bad after all: my 970 will handle it more easily than 3440*1440

Not to burst your bubble, but my XZ35 (Freesync version) arrived DOA yesterday. Initially it kept resetting and only halfway worked for about 2 hours before degrading into a continuous reset. Acer is definitely not the best company for quality control. Good luck though, I wish you the best!

I will say when it did work I didn't miss my 24" IPS monitor at all. Sure there was some gamma shift at the extreme edges, but nothing that would distract in normal conditions. The contrast measured over 3 times my IPS monitor (center screen), and video looked great. Did not get a chance to game on it before it went fully tits up, a pity.

144Hz was awesome, even on the desktop the mouse cursor movement was sooo smooth. The lower DPI didn't bother me at all, it seemed perfectly fine. Text was sharp and readable without any obvious pixelation or graininess.

The curve is VERY prominent. I wouldn't want it for my work computer, doing lots of CAD and design work, but for my home computer it's acceptable and didn't bother me while browsing web and email. Video looked great, especially Bluray rips with the wide aspect.

My hope is I can negotiate a working replacement without any additional shipping costs, otherwise I will wait for another manufacturer to release a similar monitor.

I just picked up a Z35 at a MicroCenter (St. Davids store in PA) for quite a nice deal. The sales person who sold it to me mentioned that she may have a deal to save me some money. When I asked what that deal was, she said if i purchased a processor with the monitor, the Z35 would be 20% off. I said I would think about it as she went and got the monitor. When she came back with the monitor and the 20% coupon, the CPU I had to purchase to get the discount was something quite old. Not quite sure what it is (haven't looked at it yet) but it was only $6.95.

So basically for $6.95, I saved 20% off of the $1099.99 retail price...$219.99 to be exact.

If you have a MicroCenter by you and are looking for the Z35, that is quite the nice deal.

I haven't had a chance to setup it up yet as I'm still at work for a few hours.... frown.gif
