    I've bought a few things from PCCG and have also been happy with their service. Had a round of faulty speakers and they were great in getting it sorted out.

    Any new x34 owners having issues with games you are playing? Or are you having issues only with games that don't support 21:9 format.

    Hey all - just a heads up - I bought the Ergotron MX arm for my Predator - and it works great. Obviously with the height restrictions I don't think you can put the screen in portrait mode - but that ain't any loss.

    It's amazing how much more room I have on my desk without that beautiful but clunky stand.

    I will take some pics Australia day when I finish adjusting it.

    Only issue i have had is when i fired up Total annihilation and the game glitched out because the massive horizontal resolution meant the width of some of the smaller maps were not wide enough to fill up the screen lol

    well.. i just picked one of these up from MSY. No dead pixels ect but some strange patch of colour on the stand up near the top where it joins the monitor. Looks like a blotch of silver paint..

    WTF!... do i contact acer to replace the stand?

    Are there other tests i should be doing before accepting the screen?

    Thanks in advance.

    "YEAAAAAH BOOIII!" lol :thumbup:

    Pretty happy to say I've joined the club :D
    Didn't see anywhere that shows X34A and my sticker under the monitor said X34. Dec 2016 build, straight to 100hz and there is a little bleed in the upper left and right corners but with IPS you're always going to get something. In the beginning I was not really liking the loss of vertical space (coming from a dell u3011) but slowly getting used to it. 21:10 is perfection?

    Some slight things Acer could have improved on but that would be nit picking. Overall a great display and definitely loving the faster panel. :thumbup:

    How would one of these go on something like, say a 770gtx until I get around to updating the gpu as well?

    Usable at all? Currently using a dell 2709 which is on its last legs.

    Well it will work but the 770 is a weak card these days. You'll hit VRAM limits and have low fps in new stuff. But depends what you play?

    If you are gaming dont both with this monitor without anything less than a 1070.

    Everything will run like ass because the res is so high. Its pertty close to a 4K screen, so think of it that way.

    This monitor is on sale again $1299.

    I spoke to Acer Australia and they told me that the x34p will be released 3rd quarter overseas so another month or two after that before it comes out here. They also told me it would have higher quality parts and they are aiming for 144hz OC with out of the box 100hz. Is it possible to get 144hz on an ultra wide? Trying to decide if i should wait or pull the pin.

    Been a solid 2.5 months at $1499 so it's about time they dropped the price again, still should be $1000 imo. The 34p looks good but the extra curve is not really welcome.

    Pull the pin

    100hz over 60hz has 90% of the benefits of 144hz over 60hz imo

    The P has allready being delayed massively

    Im sitting infront of mine now, and i wouldnt want that much extra curve to the screen

    Just wondering, my X34 flickers at 100hz but is fine at 95. Used to be fine at 100 until it decided not to anymore.

    Would this be a reason for warranty return or is it simply a matter of "whatever you get over 60 is what you get".

    Unfortunately nothing over 60 is guaranteed so I'm 99% sure Acer wont replace it under warranty

    Thanks. Yeah that's what I figured. It's mainly an annoyance; the difference between 95 and 100 is barely noticeable.
