I can get a new one for $600. I decided for now it's not worth it. Considering I have two xb271hu's. If I never purchased the predators. Then I would still be using my Dell s2716dg. Then PlayStation 3d display as side Monitor.I like the higher refresh rate + one in portrait while other in landscape.
At this moment in time I do not believe ultrawide is worth it. I don't mind black bars but if there is significant bleed or glow then I mind.

When you have 1440p 200hz panel that's only an upgrade from my panel. I will wait for the next revision or jump straight to 4k HDR g sync and stick with my ghetto custom resolution because there is still no real 4k HDR g sync ultrawide announced. Yes I know I'll need a 1080ti or 1180 but that's okay.

IMO, I was able to get my Acer predators at a steal and I have them covered under 2 other warranties other than manufacturer which was included in price. You can't beat that. Plus, I have heard some bad things about Asus customer service. I heard Acer is a bit better but still not great. I just tested the dell warranty to sell my monitor as new as possible for the second hand consumer. I had a new monitor at my door step in around 18 hours.

They're serious about the next day air. I was really impressed. I know it's TN but it's not the bad. It was just annoying when I went dual monitor and constantly compared it to the predator. So I went **** it and replaced it with 2.

Native 60hz and OC up to 100hz. Could have coil whine at 95hz and need to drop it down.

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.

The best way to use a g-sync is to set frame cap with Riva tuner to 4-5 below your hz max. To keep g sync engaged and disable your v sync option in games applications and Nvidia control panel.

Try that and let me know the results.

Oh, wow. That's a deal breaker for me.
I'll just wait for the 1440p 144hz 21:9s to come out...

Exactly that is a massive deal-breaker. Some people don't mind do you know I can live with playing my games and black bars 16:9 for the higher fps. But it's really disappointing when you give up that option too.

The worst part is I heard that does more issues with the new HP Omen VA panel models versus this Asus and Acer. Since these are IPS panels they had better viewing angles than those va panels.

Regardless the best case scenario for now. Is just wait for a proper Asus or Acer successor.

Bought one of these on launch day from Alternate, so I've been using it for over a year now.

Contrary to most people here somehow, I have absolutely no issues with it.
- Always have it running at 100hz, no flickering, no noise whatsoever.
- G-Sync works perfectly with every game I ever tried, it's awesome really. Can't use a standard monitor anymore.
- Don't see any scanlines. They were very visible on the Acer monitor I tried before this one, now they're just gone.
- No corner glow during normal use. It's slightly visible on a full black image in a dark room... but who uses a gaming monitor to look at black?

Now I don't know if I won the monitor lottery here or something, or if people who have a good experience generally don't report back... but it's amazing! Best monitor I ever had. If you can get one for 600, buy that thing asap.

Exactly same here. Been using it at 100 hz all time and perfect. The comments on coil whine are hilarious to me, never heard it.

Mine was perfect but just in case I sent it for a Firmware updte. No noises, perfect @ 100Hz, almost no light bleed. I got for $800 on Ebay. No regrets
