Acer Z35P In hand and small review - Page 11

post #101 of 251
Would this monitor be good for photography editing as well as gaming? I'm not a professional photographer or anything, but I do put a lot of effort into my photographs and I've been seeking an ultrawide that is a good balance between gaming and photo editing.

Can you confirm the max height of the monitor with its back arm fully extended?

I also do both. I ruled out the Agon AG352UCG—which supposedly uses the same panel as this monitor—due to the color banding, poor viewing angles, and the 2016-17 trend towards a narrower curve radius. If you care about your photos, I would try to get an IPS panel with as flat as curve as possible. The only 3440x1440 monitors I've been considering are the LG 34UM88-P which is flat, and the Acer Predator X34, Acer XR341CK, and Asus ROG PG348Q, which are all 3800R. I've basically already decided on one of the Acers and just waiting to see if AMD Vega will be any good before deciding which Acer to get.

I've had a VA panel for the last nine years and I don't like it for photo editing at all. I often find myself moving my head off-axis to look around the effects of the black crush, but then the colors start looking washed out if I move too far off-axis. Modern VA panels are supposed to have better horizontal viewing angles, but the AU Optronics AMVA panel in this monitor is a throwback to the mid-2000s, and it's also only 8-bit instead of at least 10-bit via 8+FRC.

Great information. I've been eyeballing those monitors you mentioned well - in fact I've had the Asus ROG PG348Q in my Amazon cart more than once but just couldn't pull the trigger yet - I'm super paranoid about having to play the panel lottery game in regards to excessive black light bleeding or anything like that. I know that swapping out with Amazon probably wouldn't be a big deal if i got one that was terrible.

My experience with the Asus PG348Q is that they all have backlight bleed and Ips glow. I tried 3 of them and difference was not to be less or more it was where the bleed was situated on the monitor. If you buy it you will have the problems. This is why I returned the 3 one by one and waited for something better. I have it right in front of me and it is the Acer z35p. Keep in mind I do not play with photos editing or anything relate to color accuracy only games ans webbrowsing. But I can see that the color are well balanced out of the box and do not have any color blurring or banding. At the end of the day, it is a question of preference. The best idea would be for you to see them before you take a decision. Maybe a store near your home can show you what the Asus looks like?

I bit the bullet and ordered an x34a, being without a monitor is crippling me, and the z35p has no signs of showing up in the UK anytime soon frown.gif

i wonder how far the gsync range goes for this monitor when overclocked to 120 hz, does the sync stop at the native refresh rate 100 hz, even if you overlock the panel to 120 rolleyessmileyanim.gif
post #108 of 251
OC is done through the gsync module, so just like X34/PG348Q, gsync will cover up to whatever OC refresh rate you choose.

stick to IPS for that, VA is known for high contrast but inaccurate colors
