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

I found out that it's a GSYNC driver issue that Nvidia apparently is in no hurry to fix. I've had both ultra wide monitors the ASUS Swift and the Acer Predator X34 both (21.9) ratio and both have the vertical line issue in full screen mode when playing wow but not in Windowed mode. There's nothing wrong with the monitors it's just the Nvidia drivers. Fortunately though doing more research I came across this bit of info.

I am looking to Monoprice but am concerned at the fact that the mount is recessed and even though there are max 100x100 mounts, the brackets may extend past the points making it unusable.

Can anyone suggest a wall mount that they've used?

bro best arms are amazon basic I have 2 for each of my xb271hu's. I am not sure if I should give em up for a pg348q or keep one predator on side.

Thanks for the reply. I got it through Amazon who are normally spot on with returns but this time said I had to pay the return shipping and they'd reimburse me approx £5 towards shipping. You know how large the box is, getting quotes here it would be at least £20 just for postage and £60 all in if I wanted it covered in case of loss or damage.

I raised my concerns with Amazon who then agreed to collect it for free but I can't really be bothered going through that again so I think I'll just get a refund and wait for the next refresh of monitors which can't be long now hopefully... assuming I can live without 100 Hz or gsync... or ultrawide!

Unfortunately there aren't really any computer shops near me I could try before buying which would be the ideal solution.

Thanks for your feedback though, these really are lovely monitors if it were't for that issue.

Hi, do you happen to have a source for that? I've got until Monday to decide if I want to keep the monitor!

That is weird because amazon has the free return policy, at least here in Germany. Also, I have Prime which is not expensive so maybe is that too and in fact they picked it up at home. I was very convenient. In any case, I highly doubt you will have the same problem with a second monitor. I would risk it because its worth it once you get a nice panel.

Sorry I don't have that link anymore but i've done more research today and I found out that it may be a monitor issue and not a video card driver issue. This has happened on all three monitors I have tested other than on the 27" see my post below from the Acer Predator thread.

"I just got my X32, it was built in February 2017 and is also showing the scan line issue. Before this monitor I tested two of the ASUS Swift monitors both 21.9 screen ratio as well and they both showed the exact same scan line issue.

Not sure what to do at this point but I'm debating returning it and settling with the ASUS Swift PG279Q. I know it's going down in size and don't like that but what can I do? It appears on these 21.9 screens the GSYNC is broken. It's still s great monitor without GSYNC I know so I might just live with it I don't know yet. More testing without GSYNC is needed before making a decision."

Watch the video below to see what I mean:

Does anyone else encounter this or is it just me?

I believe that is actually the driver activating (or refreshing) G-Sync. The same happens with my PG279Q. I just got used to it and ignore it.

Someone replyed to a post of mine and I thought this might be helpful.

Quote: "Every x34 and 34a has those lines, they are called Scanlines, shown usually at lower fps with Gsync and 100hz overlock.

It varies from monitor to monitor how strong they are. My own had absolutely horrific lines which could be seen up to 1 metre in Gsync Pendulum demo and it made monitor utterly useless piece of junk. Now I will try getting another and praying that it wont have such bad lines.

What i heard is that good units only produce lines slighty in Pendlum demo and they are no where else or allmost impossible to spot else."

I might risk trying another X34 but if I do that will mean I've tried a total of 4 different 21.9 monitors! 3 of them so far hav had the issue so I'm very doubtful that the 4th one will be any better.

My Dell s2716dg sometimes gives me this issue or it could just be the general switching and applying up settings. On my xb271hu it's faster. I have two of them and they're great. Right now I'm debating buying a pg348q because someone locally selling it for 600.

For now I'm running one of the monitors in 2560 by 1080 just to try out 21 by 9. I have it on a monitor arm so I just shove it in front of my face. Yeah it's really cool to try out 21 by 9. My main thing is what does ghetto hack I at least get 165hz. I really don't want to go down to 100hz. Plus I feel there are more issues with the ultrawide g syncs than the regular 1440p IPS g sync panels.

Worst case scenario I could keep the ultrawide and the pg348q on side but it gets a bit obnoxious then.
