Sites are aware of this and will allow returns.

Acer recently ( last month ) deleted the thread and or archived it due to people linking back to it on multiple retail sites given that official reps had released the statement.

Mine is manufactured in july of this year. Seems to be issue free.

so ive had this monitor maybe a week now and wow I didn't think it would be this refreshing, I have the x34a also but I love the fact I do not have the keep looking to my left / right ( X34A) I can just stay looking directly ahead.

the overall experience, the picture etc is very sharp makes my X34a a little mushy also the IPS color seem so much more vibrant and clear

I do have the weird artifact that most people have but really doesn't bother me as it only happens now and then plus I got this for a steal compared to RRP.

I seem to have gotten better in rocket league , tried BF1 but it seems blocky and slow in BF1 compared to the X34A .

viewing content is also great, can watch everything in 4k on youtube and it fills the whole screen! instead of watching it in 1080p with black bars tongue.gif

its still a tough decision .. x34a or XB321HK? I feel like if they was fused together it would make the absolute perfect monitor.

hell what am I talking about just bring out a 4k 32'' 144hz monitor biggrin.gif

I just picked up an XB321HK from Micro Center and so far I think it's great. It doesn't have the consistency of my Dell UP3216Q but that's not really a fair fight.

One odd thing I've noticed is a flicker/flash of the screen on POST or waking from sleep. There's no distortion at all - just a few flashes of the in-tact image. I've been using it heavily the last few days for both gaming and productivity and have yet to see this behavior during normal usage. So far it's only happening, and consistently at that, during POST and wake.

I have tried both the Acer cable as well as a known-good 4K/60 cable without any difference in result. I actually was able to try a second XB321HK and found it did this too.

I've notice this thing powers on and displays extremely quickly compared to other monitors I've tried. Does that have anything to do with it?

In the event it's helpful:

X99/6950X
EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3

you said the flicker happens on waking from sleep. I think this is typically normal when it switches from power saving mode to normal mode. I didn't get the point in case of POST. What do u mean?

I figured it out. The flicker on boot/POST was related to the CSM (Compatibility Service Module) setting in my motherboard (Rampage Edition 10) BIOS. It seems having CSM enabled, a 1080Ti, and a GSync monitor can and likely will result in the phenomenon I describe above. I didn't dive deep enough to speak to what exactly is causing the flashing but changing the BIOS setting has 100% resolved my concern.
