Same image pretty much and similar performance and game play. Same thing, different wrapper when I compare the two. This panel does have nicer On Screen Display however and much nicer navigation method with the joystick around the side. It also has swivel on the stand while the normal X34 does not, only the X34A does. The X34 does have a nice RGB underglow lighting which does add some ambiance while the ROG is the Red eye only. I prefer the ROG more aesthetically but really thats' a personal thing.

I use invisible glass on all of my monitors for years as well as my 65" tv, and have had no issues with it.

Hi everyone. I was an anonymous follower to this thread and read pretty much from start to finish and made an account just to post my experience with this monitor.

I went through 7 monitors to get an "acceptable" condition monitor. I know individual experiences vary, but I have never experienced such lack of quality control on a monitor... ever.

I knew backlight bleed was something to be accepted for this monitor and to be honest, some backlight bleed didn't bother me, as long as I couldn't see it during gaming. I also do know that taking photos in a dark room of backlight bleed will overexpose the bleeding... heavily exaggerating the bleed. I also accepted the fact that on a pitch black screen, bleeding is expected to be noticeable, but that there are very few times I would experience this.

That being said...

7 monitors: 2 online retailers, 5 b&m

First 2 monitors: 2 dead pixels each. I was looking for them and maybe would not have noticed them otherwise. However, knowing that I would spend $1300 on a monitor... I could not accept a pixel flaw. Both had backlight bleeding but was acceptable (can only see in pitch black background).

Monitors 3 and 4: "heavy backlight bleed" - Heavy, as in orange hue on each corner and a massive cloud of orange hue on one or two corners. This bled through to semi-dark scences (ie: gaming, movies, etc.)

Monitor 5: stuck blue pixel, bad backlight bleed

Monitor 6: stand is not level. left side drooped down half an inch compared to the right.

Monitor 7: acceptable backlight bleed (same as monitors 1 and 2). I can see it clearly, but only in pitch black.

I have never been through such a nightmare in exchanging such a heavy-packaged monitor.

You should've bought it in-store so u could check it before bringing it home.

.

I thought I was the only one with that issue redface.gif
I had to exchange my first one as it was uneven and sloped, the return dept at B&H thought I was crazy lol.

Super odd how that is even a problem, how does that even happen? Aren't those parts all made the same ? Never in my hundreds of different monitors I've had have I ever seen that.

Not sure. I'm sure it has to do with the slightest deformity in the plastic or metal hinge.

ANYWAYS...

Ended up returning Monitor #7 for good! No more exchanges!!

This monitor had very bad scanlines. I read about scanlines, but never really did much research about them so when I saw these grey horizontal lines throughout my entire screen, I thought it was a panel defect until I read more about scanlines.

Some people don't seem to mind which is odd to me. Scanlines are way more instrusive than blacklight bleeding or dead pixels in my opinion. I have a dell gsync panel so comparing the gaming experience really emphasizes how poor the picture looks with those grey lines.

I told the store manager that these should not be sold. It's no wonder that all of their gsync monitors EXCEPT FOR the 34 inch ultrawide gsync (acer & asus) are the only ones they have in stock.

It could also be the price, that is why many people do not want them
