The PG348Q has like 5 different gaming modes in the menu... honestly check out their website description (or make your own under user defined)

You can't go wrong with either. But paying a little bit more on the Asus gives you a slightly more premium product. They both do 3440x1440 @ 100hz.

well the asus is cheaper right now and its got 5ms vs 4ms of the acer. Will that 1ms response difference be a big deal?

Almost the same. You won't tell. Enjoy your monitor.

Thank you for that. Im sorta coming from a 144hz asus 1080p monitor non gsync which has kinda become the wifes gaming monitor so im curious see the difference between the 144hz and the 100hz of this guy. Ugh with this monitor I've got a terrible feeling im either A. going to have to run it in 2560x1080 to get those high frames or B. end up having to upgrade with maxwell which i didn't want to do. I wanted to wait for volta or 1080ti. I wanted to really hold out for hbm memory before i dropped another 1400 on gpu's.

I few weeks ago I had a 780gtx. It ran fine on the monitor. Was doing 100fps on 2yr old games easily.

Just sacrifice some quality settings.
Make sure vsync is off.
Have Anti Aliasing off or minimal.
Nothin' wrong with running a lower resolution. Depending on the game. See how you go.

You should be OK. You just won't be getting ultra settings easily with this unless the games are vulcan optimized

Well hopefully the 780ti classifieds will hold up a little longer. If they dont fare well at 3440x1440 i guess i can turn it to 2560x1080 and enjoy the widescreen still and the 100hz.

Get the pg348Q. Slightly better QC.


This is a panel issue or the driver issue ? I have gtx 1080 and this is my second monitor. I rma previous one with that issue.

If you search there is gtx 1080 flickering issues with drivers. is that the problem?

My new PG348Q just came in today (ordered from Amazon) and the first thing I checked for was backlight bleed. I have no dead/stuck pixels and no coil whine, but the backlight bleed is definitely there. I'm not sure if this is an acceptable/above average level of bleed or if I should exchange it so I figure I'd ask for some input (I'm pretty new to this...) I have also noticed the darker colored bar towards the top running horizontally across my screen that others have mentioned (but only against certain color backgrounds such as grey and darkish green. The image below is taken from my phone and I tried to lower the ISO levels to as close as possible as what it looks like in person (though I couldn't get the exact ISO number because I am using an iPhone). Input would be much appreciated!

EDIT: In person, it still looks slightly less pronounced than in the picture below. May 2016 build.

Overclock it to 100hz... see if you get any flickering. Play some dark games on it.

Set the brightness to 60-70. 80 from the box is abit too bright imo.

It probably looks better in person. Mines similar probably 2x less than what you see in the pic with almost no blb in the corners. Top left is only noticable if i'm looking for it on a solid black.

The black bar would annoy me more. See how you go.

Mine is overclocked to 100Hz. No flickering that I've seen so far, although I haven't gotten a chance to test many games out on it yet. Brightness is already set at 70. Yours doesn't have the black bar at the top at all that people have mentioned?
