If the Acer checks out, I'll keep it. I'm not a fan of the pictures of the stand, but if the panel is good, it'll be a keeper. The Asus will go back for a refund. If the Acer is bad, they both go back, except I'll request a replacement be sent from Newegg for the Asus. I just like the stand and bezel of that one much more (although I haven't seen the Acer in person, so my opinion may change).
When you will receive you XB?
