Default [Owners club] Acer Predator X34 G-sync monitor

PCCG and Scorptec have this one listed up on their sites.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...1f25ac283a95b3

Known issues:

1. Blue banding.
2. Wake up from sleep backlight issue (WFS).
3. Coil whine from bottom left of the screen at high refresh rates.
4. Some units don't Overclock to 100Hz.
5. Scan lines

Other minor issues: BLB, IPS glow.


Known Fixes:

1. WFS: Needs hardware replaced (not sure which)
2. Blue banding: Needs firmware update and can only be done by Acer.
3. Coil Whine: Control panel replacement.

Tests for banding:

Gradients colours : http://imgur.com/a/dqgIK#0

Program :http://www.passmark.com.au/products/monitortest.htm



Edit: Changed it to owners club, I think it deserves one..

The one at PCCG are sold out already..

Anyone at OCAU manage to get their hands on one of these? Does the panel have any bleeding issues?
Anyways, this is one expensive puppy. The Asus Rog one will probably be $2200..
Afaik its the LG panel??

Edit:

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/...edator_x34.htm

Yup, LG panel "LG.Display AH-IPS"

Edit 2:

Skimming through the review, looks alright for a 34" IPS display.

Overdrive works best on normal
Overlocking works good and it performs best at 100hz
Pretty shit pixel responce time compared to the 27" inch IPS displays from AUO
Ok in panel processing delay
Acceptable colour post calibration

Just got a message from PCCG that they have limited stock coming in at the end of this week 23th Oct.

Pre-orders are up but they'll probably go quickly.

Thing with forums are that people who don't have a Problem generally don't post in them. People with a problem always post. If acer wants to be get a foot hold as a premium display provider one can only hope they step up there warranty and support.
still pretty amazing that the cost of these monitors that they could let so many defective units be sold though.
