Now i am sitting here wondering if i'll get both screens as described or a message about price glitch and a refund lol

 

Fingers crossed!

 

PS: Did anyone else ever got stuff on Amazon for that much less and it happens all the time or did i really get lucky? >.<

So, anyone else is pulling This PC and renaming it  My Computer just to remind Microsoft that there are many like it, but this one is mine? :D

Acer Predator x34

25 November 2015 - 06:26 PM

Well, finally got my hands on this gorgeous Acer Predator x34. Must say, i am really impressed with the colors and brightness, never had an IPS panel before. GSync makes gaming smooth as butter. The sheer size of this thing is staggering when compared to a 27" monitor. I like the design a lot and it could become "the" monitor for a good 4-5 years for me. Could. Unfortunately, the light bleed on this unit is... Well, see for yourself.

Also, when trying to switch to 100Hz in NVidia panel with monitor overclocked to 100Hz causes the screen to go black. Works fine at 95 Hz.
 
Going to send it back to Newegg for a replacement, if the next unit has same problems will have to take my money back and wait until Asus releases their version.


UPDATE: Filed for a replacement with newegg, but i think i will just take my money back. Woke up this morning, tried to switch monitor to the game mode (game mode has dimmed brightness and you know how the bright screens are to the eye early in the morning). The monitor "supposedly" switched to Game mode and went black. OSD menu got stuck on "input" and wouldn't let me change anything else. Tried resetting it, disconnecting from power for a few minutes, rebooting my PC - nothing helped. I mean - lightbleed, broken OSD, unable to overclock to 100 Hz.... Complete failure. I am not looking forward to spending hunderds in shipping fees, buying a high-end monitor should not be a raffle.

Sorry Acer, next time try harder,

NVidia G-Sync monitors arriving late

16 September 2015 - 01:16 PM

I've been looking at upgrading my old ViewSonic for something more flashy and gamer-grade, namely a 4k IPS GSync monitor. A few of them were announced back in July - including some magnificent (on paper) monitors from Asus and Acer, both using IPS panels and utitlizing latest and greatest from NVidia - the GSync technology. Since then, little was revealed about when said units may be available to the end-user. According to various speculations, the dates range from September 2015 to early 2016. Conducting my regular search on e-tailers websites such as Newegg and Amazon i couldnt help but notice that there are many monitors utilizing AMD's Freesync are already on the market. So, that really makes me wonder - what's the catch? Why do they make us wait? I, personally, am an Asus fanboy and hence, waiting on the IPS GSync monitor by that particular manufacturer although at this point i would gladly settle for a 34" Acer predator, if it was available with GSync. The Freesync verision is out there already, and considering that it works ONLY with AMD cards i assume it helps AMD rack up some money. Could someone explain that to me?
