Hi, could you please confirm if the HDMI ports are 2.0 ports? My current monitor is only HDMI 1.4 so only plays 4k in 30fps, so I have to use displayport. Thanks

Just received it. Can’t say much for eBuyers choice of Yodel as next day courier for an extra tenner (box quite badly damaged - see pic) But monitor itself is fine and looks mightily impressive with some 4K Netflix streaming through it! Very happy with the purchase.

Acer are offering some pretty good MSF (marketing support funds) for various product ranges presently, and running up to the holiday season. Synergy (Acer's partner portal) has a listing for several up and coming promotions, and monitors has been indicated in the communications that I've seen last week. OCUK may have got the jump on others with this deal, but you will see others to follow as the margins on these monitors are not huge, but with the added support from Acer you are looking at anywhere from £150-300 per unit at the high end, allowing these sorts of discounts.

Ok I folded and ordered on finance - which works about the non deal price paid over 2 years (~£1900). And this is pretty much the exact combo that I wanted for an upgrade. I'm aware the screen can go as lower than £600-700 but I don't want to hit my credit rating too hard with finance from more than one place. This way it's a managable investment for my gaming hobby and a big upgrade from my current 1080p tv + R9 290 combo! So if like me the thought of spending this much before Christmas/ holiday is too much - this seems a good deal on finance.

Any chance of a source? Would be interested to know why

That’d be great, was only 599 for a short while at ebuyer

Uncommon.Sense

Be careful here, the X34P will more then likely be on offer in the next two weeks as Acer are offering significant retailer rebates on volume targets. It might even drop as low as the £599 it was in June.

Its a controllable RGB lighting software from Asus. Other suppliers have equivalents soch as corsair iCue, MSI Mystic. you can buy PC Fans, RAM, GPU's, Keyboards Mice etc that can be controlled by the software. I have an MSI motherboard and then all corsair fans, controllers etc which is a pain as the software doesnt sync well, so a lot of people will get all Asus Aura or all MSI Mystic Light. Or save their money and buy better components :p

Beehj84

Short answer: it depends. Some panels are able to increase their refresh rate as the resolution decreases. Others cannot. Multiple variables at play here. The safe bet is usually that you'll have to drop the resolution considerably to have a chance to gain anything, and unless it's a reported feature for that specific model, assume that it won't and rather just get the model with the refresh and resolution you actually want.

Darkwaxer

You know when monitors say 4K at 60hz.. does that mean if you were to do 1440p that would also be 60hz?

GravyGamer

Haha, posted this monitor in May from scan for the same price, got -80° because "why would anyone pay this much for a monitor" :( Bought it though and I love it. Only down side is I see a bit of ghosting/motion blur, even at 120hz when playing fast paced games like siege or overwatch. Screen quality is amazing, and I've realised that EVERY monitor stand should have a handle on it to pick it out of the box

Wouldn't all 29" 2560x1080 monitors have the same PPI or am I missing something?

mrguy797

2560x1080 is sufficient for a 29”, worth noting a 29” ultra wide is the same height as a 24” non ultra wide

PaulsGamingLive

Yeah just how LG use RGBW panels on 4k TV sets, puts me off the comapny

ck_

I have a LG 29" ultrawide monitor similar to this. Has served me well but the vertical height is a little too short at 21:9 on a 29". Think I wouldn't go ultrawide again unless it was 32" at least.

And the lack of dimming zones, max brightness etc. It's quite deceptive marketing from LG, as many will think this is a HDR monitor, when in reality it's far from it

Hootwo

Some ppl here are saying a screen this wide is too big for a desk. Software guys in our company use up to 6x HD and 1440p screens. My desk has a 39" monitor, 2x HD screens in portrait, a 1440p and a 28" 4k screen - and really it's fine, L-shaped, with a seat on casters. If you have the use case and need the pixels, go for it ...

bbspam

For all thise who are concerned that this is not 4k, the horizontal resolution is actually 4k. And because the term 4k refers to the horizontal resolution then this is by definition 4k. As the vertical resolution is a few pixels higher than HD 1080, you're getting the best of both worlds :D To add to the confusion for technophobes, traditionally HD format has been specified by the vertical pixel count which for a standard 4k TV is closer to 2k (2160). In conclusion, the new HD format should really have been named 2.1k and then we can quite rightly complain that this monitor ain't 2.1k! Regardless of resolution, I think I will place a pre-order. I just hope Minecraft and Lego Batman don't look to blocky on it....

Backup to 700 quid...

MIINT

Lol push it to the max and it's fixed!that's engineering for you. Is ultrawide worth it though...hmmmmmm

FactProvider

Hi, I managed to fix it by overclocking the monitor, at 160hz the issue disappears. I ran the frameskipping test and it's 100% fine. The problem with TN is they don't come in ultrawide.

MIINT

I would try and get a replacement. IPS has bleed issues which is what's stopping me from getting an IPS and to go with the TN.. also trying to work out whether I'm really bothered about screen tearing..

FactProvider

I bought this monitor and it's great, however I just noticed a possible problem. When I'm looking at a very dark image in a game (like a night level on Arma3 or Wildlands) and then move the mouse/camera a little the image brightens slightly in the dark areas while it's happening. It goes dark again instantly when movement stops. This is not a graphics settings problem, it's definitely the monitor itself. I've tried every setting to get rid of it and nothing works. Can anyone who owns this panel test and see if theirs does the same? This is my first IPS panel so maybe this is normal. Dell says I have to send the monitor back today if I want a refund. I play in a very dark room and 20% brightness so perhaps I notice this more than most people. Please help this poor hedgehog.

You are correct on the technical details but for productivity needs (programming) the ppi is perfectly fine. Obviously it's not going to fit the bill for video production or gaming but you wouldn't be looking at a sub £800 ultrawide if this was your use case, you'd most likely be looking at 4k 144mhz+ monitors.

You have lost me. I was only pointing out that a 34"=27" nothing more but as its not for you then not really a big deal.

Defiant306

You have completely lost me. The LG Ultrawide 34UM68-P in this deal is 34" monitor at 2560x1080, in my view that is far too low a resolution for a monitor of this size. Weather its a 34" or 27" 1080p on monitor of that size has to low a PPI for some peoples liking including me. Redit quote: 1920x1080 on a 27" screen has pretty much the same PPI (Pixel Per Inch - Pixel density) as 2560x1080 on a 34"/35". https://www.reddit.com/r/ultrawidemasterrace/comments/62oltc/ultrawide_34_inch_is_1080p_really_not_enough/

Purchased it and voted hot after some research and thought. Lowest price it's been...

Harry.Turk

Missed out on the 29" at circa £200 last year (the price has remained constant at £260 since...) so had another look and noticed this price drop too. Am very close to buying this for the price but concerned by the low rating here - is this price not impressive or is it the monitor (I'm currently doing the rounds on Youtube to get a better idea)? I'd predominately use it for work (reporting and dashboarding, etc) but want something that I can also use for photo editing and perhaps some light gaming (though I never have time for the latter). I have a home-build PC with an AMD gpu but don't think it has Freesync although I will upgrade that at some point. I currently use a spare 37" LG tv as a monitor and it far too big that close up so need a replacement. I definitely want an ultrawide but now debating whether this is worth it... Cheers

scoopsuk

I have had this for a couple of years. Good monitor with height adjustable stand too. You can overclock it too - I run it 30-80hz so it can enable AMD’s low frame rate control (if that is important to you).

Beehj84

Lol ... yes, that is true Nvidia cards won't run Freesync and AMD card won't enable Gsync. Not that it stops you from using the monitor in any way. It's an additional feature, which works best at lower fps/refresh-rates in my experience. I've got a GTX1070ti and a 144hz Freesync monitor ... and at 100+hz (often lower), I don't miss freesync at all (had Vega 56 before). For the record, Nvidia could enable Freesync support with a simple driver update. They choose not to. Freesync is open sourced, not AMD specific. Gsync is the enclosed ecosystem.

dagher

Freesync is only for AMD gpu's. If you have Nvidia card go for G-sync monitors. Learned it the hard way (nerd)

I have this model but 29 inch (bought on amazon for 160 I believe). I personally wouldnt go any smaller than 29, monitor is wide so on 25 inch it will probably be short. 29 is roughly same height as my standard 16:9 22 inch. Wide screen is really awesome for productivity though!

Sam.Pickering

Amazing monitor. I have the 29inch version. I wouldn't personally go smaller than that but at this price it's a steal. 21:9 is the future when it comes to pc gaming (it's amazing)

EndlessWaves

You can't talk about pixel density without talking about viewing distance. People view monitors from anywhere between 20-30cm to 1.2-1.5m. What works at the lower end of the distance range doesn't at the higher and vice versa. DPI scaling is a nice idea, but you need a lot of pixels if you want to avoid the blur. LG's upcoming 5120x2880 34WK95U would be a good candidate but I'd not convinced about 3440x1440 over 2560x1080 if you're going to use 125-150% scaling. Now that's just tortuous. quoting the number of 'lines' is a fashion that's only shown up in the last 10-15 years in computer monitors, although why people keep using it I have no idea given the confusion it leads to.

They can be a real pain to get in touch with too. During a monitor misprice before, they kept trying to phone my house number during a work day despite me giving a mobile number to contact when ordering. Never sent an email or tried any other contact option. Eventually I contacted them to ask them what was happening since the order hadn't moved for like 5 days, finally got told that they no longer sold the product and they'd tried to ring me on my home number. During this time, they apparently tried to contact my home number during work hours again. In the end I just asked for a refund through their form because I couldn't be bothered. A friend who also tried to order the same product apparently got offered other products for way higher prices. A week later they'd put the product they miss-priced back on the site at it's normal price. They should have just said it was a miss price instead of lying...

scoopsuk

@Beehj84 - Yep a good and comprehensive response. I have a flat 34 inch ultrawide and for general use I wouldn't want to go back to 16:9 without having two monitors. I am not a big fan of curved screens but this is the one scenario where I could see it would make sense. Gaming with it is fabulous - sure not every single game plays with it but if you are stuck with 16:9 it is roughly the same size as a 27 inch normal display so plenty big enough. I would recommend an ultrawide wholeheartedly but just add the following areas of consideration: 1. A 29inch display or less will appear fairly small on your desk due to the reduced height. Definitely try one out if you can first so you can see how it works for you. 2. A 34inch display takes up a lot of desk space, it might be a shock as to just how wide it is so make sure you have room. 3. Related to the point above, if you want two of them you are going to need a ton of room and may have to change your workspace entirely. 4. I would recommend getting one with a decent stand that has height adjustment as well as tilt - the stands on some of them are a bit rubbish and the increased screen size can mean a wobbly display if it and your desk aren't particular sturdy.

Beehj84

1. 34" ultrawides should be curved, with the distance one sits from their monitor. Content creators concerned about their straight lines typically find it not an issue on a slight curve, but if it's a real issue, are probably better served with multiple 4k 16:9 flat screens. 2. Ultrawides are DEFINITELY better for immersive gaming than a similarly sized normal widescreen. I hear a lot of people who've never used one talking about their presumptions of it. As an ultrawide owner, I can tell you, I'm never going back, never downgrading back to 16:9. Games like The Witcher 3 are stunning in ultrawide. In fact everything I've played has been better in ultrawide, period. Planet Coaster. Wolfenstein 2. Rocket League. Half Life 2. Final Fantasy XV. Skyrim (especially heavily modded). Battlefield 1. Xcom Enemy Within and 2. Dirt 4. Project Cars. Metro 2033 series. Doom. Firewatch. GTA (all of them). Star Wars Battlefront. The Long Dark. Middle Earth Shadows of War. Far Cry 3/4. Kings Quest. Tomb Raider (& Rise of). Warframe. Elite Dangerous. Fallout 4. Bioshock. Stardew Valley. Civilization V and VI. Mass Effect series. Batman Arkham series. Age of Empires .... I'll stop. I could keep going, but I'll stop. All of them definitively better in my experience on ultrawide. 3. Gaming is about more than solely competitive play - that you can only focus on a single area isn't representative of the needs, desires, or capacities of other gamers. Regardless, competitively, ultrawide isn't necessarily a distinct advantage per se, but it sure doesn't have any remotely negative impact in my scores in BF1. The wider field of view especially in vehicles gives a greater sense of scale and context moment to moment, which helps with tactics, moving through terraint, and awareness. 4. You don't need the peripheral view of ultrawide, but you don't really need 16:9. 4:3 is plenty right (I remember the backlash against 16:9 when it first came in from 4:3 purists). And if GPU horsepower is concerned, who needs 4k, or 1440p, or even 1080p. surely 720p is enough. Heck, #480pmasterrace. Nobody needs mechanical keyboards, mice with 2 buttons, or i7 CPUs, or modern graphics cards, or overclocking period. Water cooling is nonsense, people don't really need dedicated gaming rigs or even laptops ... everyone can get buy playing snake on their Nokia 5110 phone, or Pong on the Atari 2600. /s //"And for another thing, according to a friend of mine who regrets buying one, ultrawide isn't supported by a lot of games."// There are a handful of games which don't support 21:9 resolutions. They won't support multmonitor surround setups either. In both cases, the games still run on the screen in 16:9, or on the center screen. These cases are so few and far between it's much easier to count them than the ones which support ultrawide. Most games today support it natively, out of the box. Most popular games from the past support it natively. Some games need minor, seriously easy tweaks (often simply turning on flawless widescreen). The notion that "a lot of games don't support ultrawide", if removing the examples which also don't support 16:9, becomes borderline misleading. I've not encountered a single issue that made me regret buying an ultrawide at all. Perhaps they're not suited to people who should really just be playing consoles, and they are definitely an enthusiast experience on the PC,

Yeah, curved is probably sensible with ultrawide, and I accept that an ultrawide screen may have productivity benefits (although... Is it really much better over getting a 34" normal widescreen with a higher vertical resolution? The same desktop area but with a better balance between width and height, I feel), but I think they're generally marketed as being better for gaming, and that's just not true. For one thing, you can only focus your eyes on one area at a time, and you just don't need that much peripheral vision in a game - certainly not enough for it to be worth the extra GPU power required. And for another thing, according to a friend of mine who regrets buying one, ultrawide isn't supported by a lot of games.
