[TPU] Acer Unveils the XR382CQK 38-inch Ultrawide Curved Monitor - Page 5

This is just a ballpark with a tape measure, so bear that in mind:

Full stand depth: ~13" (some of this is in front of the monitor, about 2-3", depending on how you adjust for the curve)
Depth of stand behind monitor: Around 6 1/2" to 7"

It's the second measurement I was originally referring to - the monitor naturally sits closer to you due to the stand design. I've gotten used to it, but that's still a lot of real estate that sits behind the monitor that can't really be used. Not a big deal if you don't work at your desk as I do, but I thought it important to point out since it's gonna take up almost half of your desk, plus a lot more if you run speakers next to it.

That said, I really like this monitor a lot. I hope more manufacturers move into this size and resolution.

I've only had one issue with it and I'm not convinced it is due to the monitor. After exiting out of a game (Grim Dawn) the display in Windows sort of flickered with every move of the mouse. Power cycling the monitor fixed it. Possibly a Freesync issue? Dunno, but I haven't seen it since.

I never owned the LG, however I did take a look at one at a nearby Fry's. The screen looked pretty good (always hard to tell in a Fry's) but what held me up was how cheap the plastic panels felt. They seemed to creak with every slight touch, much like the Samsung 34". Not that it matters once you have it in place, but I didn't much care for that. Given the weight of the monitor and the MSRP I would expect it to feel pretty damn solid. In comparison, the Acer is a tank.

Edit: I am now running an i7 5775C with an RX480 now, not the Pentium IGP as I had been earlier.

Is freeSync working correctly, cause i've read the 34Incher Samsung Quantum dot wider has freesync Problems. I wanted to get then 34incher Asus with Qi Charging, but it doesnt have VESA.
I guess im going to go with the x38, since i have no other choice.

Sorry, i'm not really in a great position to answer that as I mostly use this for office work and productivity. The only game I have spent any significant amount of time on is Grim Dawn, which is fairly slow-moving. Looks very smooth though. Only issue I have noticed is sometimes the screens stutters after exiting the game to Windows - restarting the monitor clears this up. No idea if it's the monitor, AMD drivers, Windows 10, Grim Dawn, or a combination of all of them that causes this. This is with an RX480 by the way. I intend to buy big Vega once it is released, so I can give you some thoughts on a couple other games at that time.

I really, really like this monitor. After having it for a couple months now I can't see going to anything smaller than this form factor. Maybe some will find 75 Hz too low, but it hasn't bothered me.

Edit: I've probably stated this before, but the OP never updated his post. This monitor is 4k-wide (3840x1600 overall) so it'll take a fair amount more to drive it effectively than its 34" brethren.

You may have one soon. Asus just announced a 144Hz, G-sync, 35" diagonal 3440x1440 with QD no less. They're kind of notorious about "announcing" way ahead of "available" however. (I don't know if this one has VESA compatibility either, but they didn't mention anything about wireless charging in the base so it's at least possible)

HDR is the only thing missing from this display as far as I'm concerned. Perfect size, resolution, and connectivity. Anyone know of a similar monitor with HDR capabilities that is on the way? Also, what type of panel is QLED most similar to in terms of speed, color reproduction, contrast, and longevity? Seems to me it would be VA, so it is actually a type of VA panel?.

It's a pretty niche form factor, so far I've only seen LG have a model in this size and resolution. Before purchasing I scoured the internet to see if other models were upcoming (especially looking for HDR, and 100Hz refresh rate), but I couldn't find anything. I suspect manufacturers are waiting to see how well this form factor is adopted before pushing out better models.

I'm not sure I understand your second question, but this is an IPS monitor, and IPS glow has not been particularly noticeable. Certainly less than my last Dell 24".

That second question shouldn't make sense to you, because it is indeed an IPS monitor. I was thinking it was VA because of all the quantum dot talk, but that was apparently a tangent. I probably even replied to this thread way back when it started with a similar sentiment, but time obfuscated the discussion.

With that said, I guess I would prefer VA though for the improved contrast and speed, in addition to wanting HDR for future proofing reasons. I feel like I have to wait even though, since as you said, 37" and 38" are niche right now - despite being the perfect size for a curved ultrawide monitor because it gives you sufficient height to your view.

Tom's Hardware just did, too. Sounds like they liked it overall. Typical IPS issues but none glaringly worse than other ultrawide curved (34" class, 3440x1440)
