Ugh. I don't need a new monitor
Any particular reason people are choosing to downvote? Might be a niche monitor but it's still a great price.

Agreed, I bought this recently at £499 and that was a steal, this is and awesome display for its intended use. It’s not a gaming monitor.
Hot for a cheap colour calibrated out of the box monitor!
What is 4K2K?? Looks like it is a 4K monitor.

4k & 4k2k are different.

4K = 4096 x 2160
4K2K = Ultra HD = 3820 x 2160
2K = Full HD = 1920 x 1080

Ooh, okay. Thanks I hadn't heard of 4K2K before.
I think it should be 3840 x 2160.

I would imagine because anyone who sees a monitor, instantly things"gaming" sees 60hz and votes cold, not thinking about the audience this monitor is aimed at
Couldn't find many reviews about this monitor, there is a good one incase you are interested. Tom's hardware review
Ordered at £499.99 on back order (expected delivery 15-25 June)... cancelled, reordered for £449.99, being delivered Tuesday.
Excellent deal... unheard of price for a true 10-bit 4K 100% Adobe wide colour gamut monitor, they're nearer £1000.

It's a monitor for photographers and designers, not gamers.
Been waiting on a decent 4K monitor deal.

32" a bit big but with the zero bevel should be more like a 27"

Awesome deal!
For anyone considering buying this, it's this cheap because the panel suffers from bad flickering issues.

Some do some don't... Tbh every single high end monitor I've ever purchased has known faults that seem to effect large numbers of users according to online forums.
We're buying from Amazon so it can be returned with zero problems.

They all do mate, the AUO Optronics panel used on this monitor has a faulty TCON chip inside, so you'll get the odd flicker, and it's been that way on this panel way back to the BenQ BL3201PH (2014?). At this price it might just get away with it given it is a professional monitor, but if I were buying at the original retail price of £800(ish) i'd be immensely annoyed.

Surely they could firmware that? and if it's too bad I'll return it.

Nope. They (Acer) finally admitted there was a problem on one of the gaming monitors using the same panel, people had to send them back to get it fixed. Turns out whatever they did to it made no difference whatsoever.

Sad thing is it's actually a good monitor. If you get one with minimal flashes you may as well keep it, but if you're one of the unlucky ones where it constantly flashes a few times a day it'd be worth sending it back and waiting for monitors later this year.

Samsung have a new VA panel to be released next week on Amazon for £410, i'm awaiting to see what reviews it gets.

VA panels are never gonna be good enough for the colour work I use a monitor for... which gaming monitor was that? I'm surprised they used a 10 millisecond 10-bit IPS panel for gaming tbh.
Got mine today... It's absolutely massive, drawfs my 27 inch Dell.
Also weighs a tonne
Hows it looking?

What is you view on the monitor? My delivery date still says end of June.
Unfortunately I'm going on holiday tomorrow so I'm going to leave setting it up until I get home... I'll post as soon as I get back.

Jesus, it's a monster.
OMFG!!
just set the monitor. Its awesome.
Got mine on Friday, great quality for the price, colours are excellent.
I ended up buying one as I needed a 4K monitor fairly quickly.

I've got the flashing issues, though at the moment they are few and far between and it's not too distracting. The monitor weighs a ton too.

It's a bit naughty of Acer to still be selling these though with that defect. If i'd paid £700+ for this without the knowledge of the problem i'd have been fuming.

Anyone who's still following this thread, I only set my monitor up at the weekend, very impressed. Stunningly accurate colours, no pixel errors and absolutely none of the problems talked about in this thread.
An absolute steal at this price.

I've been using mine for a couple of weeks now and it hasn't flickered or flashed once... does yours suffer with this affliction?
