I am interested in this monitor. I currently have the acer predator X34, but am sending it back today as it has coilwhine. It had coilwhine when I got it, sent it in for repair, and still has coilwhine, so I am now sending it in for a refund.

I am just worried that since this monitor uses the exact same panel that I will have the same issues with this one, that I had with the acer one. The good thing about acer was that their customer service was really good, and there was no problems getting the monitor in for repair, or sending it back for a refund.

It is quite simply too early to say given the PG348Q has only JUST been released and not enough people have it yet. I haven't seen any reports of coil whine, so you MAY be safe with it in that regard, but if you want to be sure you'll have to wait a bit until more of them are out in the wild with consumers. Don't trust reviews, they always get sent cherry picked panels. No review of the X34 ever mentioned coil whine, scan lines or BLB... all issues that many examples suffer with. We do not know for sure if the PG34 has avoided the same fate, but as you say, given it uses the exact same panel your concerns are certainly valid.

My unbox review

Welcome to my review, I hope you enjoy reading, good quality images will be posted later on, should be about 5.00pm

Let's start from the beginning, trying to unbox this monitor can be so difficult, the polistrain is so tight and difficult to pull out without breaking it, although this is good, as it gives it extra protection, once you open the box, you are introduced to this great large panel (it is quite heavy) once pulling this out you are introduced to other bags (protective bags) with contents in them

Contents:

DP 1.2 cable
HDMI 1.4 cable
USB cable (for the USBs at the back of the monitor)
UK Power plug
Power supply
ASUS VIP club
Sticker
Safety paper
CD Manuel disc

Also the larger contents are the stand feet, stand (for the panel) these are also in protective bags and the cable back plate for the panel

I first took the feet out of the bag, these feet are steel (I think) and have rubber pads under them (to stop it from scratching the desk or worktop) they are quite heavy and very stable

Next is the stand, this is plastic and has the RoG light within it (which needs to be placed into the feet) the copper sections of the stand are also plastic. The panel arm is steel with some plastic. The copper on the back of the monitor is also plastic

Ergonomic adjustments

Height - Smooth, does not requite much effort to move

Swivel - Smooth, does not requite much effort to move

Tilt - Smooth, does not requite much effort to move

The bezels on the monitor are plastic with a lined texture to them, the back of the monitor is also plastic

Nearly all of the plastic used is good plastic, not these awful plastics that you can find on some monitors

The screen has a protective cover and bubble wrap on it

Overall I think this monitor is well constructed and it looks great on a desk/worktop



I will test games next week (it will be Monday or Tuesday) as I have not got my EK Predator 360mm yet, to use my new system

If you have any questions, I will be here, one image for you (bad quality)


Thanks for reading

Backlight bleed/IPS glow is not really an issue for the LG panels, however we have got a few owners on another thread (trying to get them on here) they have a small amount of backlight bleed/IPS glow, I have a small amount as well (got Scan to test it)

Not seen anyone report coil whine as well

Also it seems more people are getting 100hz, however we need more samples

I got no coilwhine what so ever with any background, tried the brightness up and down from max to lowest. No dead/stuck pixels and 100hz works fine.
Im very pleased with the monitor.
