Thanks for the feedback.
With all the other ultra wides, I am surprised this is still priced at $1.2k.
Especially with the progress towards 4k gaming.
I want a monitor that will be able to do 4k with my computer but also with xbox and playstation when they come out.
It seems like 1440p will be obsolete quickly and to pay a $1.2k price tag for 1440p seems crazy.

Hello everyone, I had the X34A for a few weeks until I returned it once I noticed some banding and scanlines, is it worth it to add $100 to buy one of these instead? I've heard the QC is better, is that truly the case? Thank you.

Not really, from what I've read the QC isn't any better than Acer. And I've been keeping an eye on both monitors for a long time.

Yep, and I decided to give the Acer Predator x34 for a try. It's a lotto I know but so far I've not no luck with the ASUS Swift so since the X34 saves me money I might as well play the lotto on this one instead I figure.

If you search around you can get them delivered to your door for $1100. (don't forget to upgrade your GPU as well)

Dude, these are very over priced monitors because of the crazy specs they have. They are like anything else that is new on the market with little competition. Last I checked, there is two monitors on the market that have these specs (but they are both the same monitor).
All the other ulta wides don't meet these specs, that is why there is a huge cost difference. Don't forget these monitors need more GPU power.

Finally ordered one, $1249 CAD. How could I refuse. Sad part this comes on 2 to 5 days and my GPU is headed to EVGA for the stepup. Now I'm worried I won't be able to test it in the days I have to return.

hi all.. I got this monitor about a week ago, noticed the horizontal lines, googled it and up popped this forum with people talking about scanlines which I then identified as my issue.

Even from around 60cm away (just moved my setup to push it further back) I can notice them, particularly in X-plane 11 and, for example, the Mass Effect Andromeda start screen (to the left of the main planet it's very noticable in the pinkish background). Only had it a week and only really played these.

I was toying with returning it and most likely will as I can't stop noticing them now - especially the flight sim where its really visible on the dash since there's large swathes of grey background that doesn't move much.

I'm wondering if my scanline issue sounds abnormal to you all - in which case I'm prepared to try a replacement or if it's pretty typical and I'm just more sensitive to it, in which case a refund would be the better option and wait for a new panel.

If i disable the overclock the issue goes away but then I may as well have saved myself the cash and gone for a regular 34" curved screen.

Thoughts?

Cheers,
Dave

It was price matched at a local staples store. The website is no longer offering the sale price, could have been a typo rolleyes.gif

I have never had a problem with scanlines. Actually, I tested 6 different panels of the Asus until I got the one I kept which is almost flawless. All the previous ones where returned for excess backlight bleeding or dead pixels but no scanlines. If you can, return it and get a new one. If not, ask for a replacement.
