Got both, literally the same thing in terms of specs really. Get a good sample on either and your golden as they effectively do the same thing.. I do slightly prefer the RGB ambient lighting on the X34 which is quiet a nice touch vs the red only ROG eye. The X34A version has most the same features such as the swivel stand comparable to this panel that the initial X34 did not have. One thing I really prefer on my PG348Q is the button placement and joystick navigation, very fluid and intuitive vs the button placement on the X34, but not the biggest of issue as I guess your not always fiddling with the buttons there. I believe the upcoming X34P will have a button placement location similar to the ROG.
In a nutshell, I would pick whichever is cheaper being honest, there is still an element of lottery with both panels unless you really prefer one over the other aesthetically. I find the X34's back horrible being honest but its against the wall so meh.
