What customers say about "Key Specs"
Acer X34 Curved UltraWide QHD Monitor
  • I got this monitor for gaming. I had been using a 40-inch LG 4K TV as my gaming screen, and while my 980Ti did well at 4K, I usually dialed it back to 1080p to get all the bells and whistles. Also to get that 60 fps. (The TV could do 2560x1440, but only at 30Hz).
  • On the gaming side of things, I had no problem overclocking the display to 100hz. Gsync is a joy. It's something that you need to experience to truly appreciate. Screen tearing and stuttering are now a thing of the past.
  • Great IPS display. Functional size. Awesome OC refresh rate of 100hz. Plus wonderful G-Sync operation. Only possible upgrade for me would be a higher resolution for 4k level gaming but with 1440p and the current line up of graphics cards it is certainly more than adequate. ZERO regrets!
  • Overall I'm pretty impressed with this monitor and there are only a couple things I'd love to see in the next version --maybe: 1. slightly higher resolution, i.e. 3850x1650 --would be more akin to a 4k, not-quite 2160p 21:9 and would feel more like side-by-side monitors
  • The overclock is stable at 100hz and there is no noticeable coil whine. Everyone once and a while I do get a weird flicker when waking the computer up. This monitor is easily the best one I've ever had.
ASUS PG348Q QHD Swift Curved
  • 100Hz Overclock with G-Sync makes fast-paced games feel fluid and gives more sense of velocity and space
  • The screen is sharp and crisp, I'm coming from a 1080p monitor @ 60hz and I can definitely tell the difference.
  • It's a 100hz 21:9 ultrawide IPS. Clean design.
  • 100hz high refresh rate + G-Sync + a 1080ti are a match made in heaven. Most games on High or Ultra do not get over 100fps in 3440x1440 anway so 100hz is a sweet spot.
  • 100 hz, coming from 60 hz this is the biggest change ever. I will never go back to 60 hz.

What customers say about "Display"
Acer X34 Curved UltraWide QHD Monitor
  • Everything about this monitor is excellent, but there is a lot of light bleed on it, which hurts it's overall contrast a bit. Still a great monitor, but it'll be 5-stars when they get the light bleed down. Also, would love this in a 38 size!
  • The combination of the high resolution and color accuracy makes looking at high resolution landscape photographs feel as though I'm looking out a window. The ips glow and back light bleed is minimal. Movies a amazing as well, as most are filed at this aspect ratio.
  • The colors are on point, many options for contrast and brightness adjustment, and it has the most screen real estate I've ever worked with on a single monitor. Yes, I know I'm singing its praise, but let me explain...
  • Only complaints I have with the monitor is that I'm unable to display my chrome cast in 21:9 aspect ratio though I'm sure it's just the chromecast's lack of support, and the menu keys are a pain to work with.
  • I love this monitor, but there are some little things I dislike about it, mainly game manufactures unwillingness to include 21:9 support blaming it on an advantage when 122-200hz is acceptable.
ASUS PG348Q QHD Swift Curved
  • Well built! Impressive color reproduction and contrast after being calibrated. I use it for video editing and I like it a lot.
  • Blown away by how much 2k allows me to see in detail over standard 1080p when it comes to open-world fps games like ArmA 3 and Squad
  • BRIGHT. I have it between 62-67% and that's about where it's comfortable before it hurts my eyes if I look at it for a long time.
  • Great darks, bright brights, and a satisfying contrast ratio combined with vibrant colors make this a display to admire. It's better than LCD yet not over saturated like an OLED.
  • The On Screen Display is incredibly intuitive, well laid out, and very easy to navigate thanks to a joystick located on the back of the panel

What customers say about "Features"
Acer X34 Curved UltraWide QHD Monitor
  • Stand is great, IPS glow is there, but is minimal, speakers are not very good, menu navigation could be a whole lot better, the provided cables are too short in my opinon, but none of that mattered once I used the monitor. I cannot say enough good things about G-sync.
  • Speakers are pretty good for daily use. Takes gaming and Movies to a whole new level. The only complaint has been stated many times - not them most intuitive OSD menu system.
  • The vesa mounts were easy to use. I am taking one star away because the OSD is utter crud. I thought it was just whining on other people's part, but it does suck and it makes calibrating the monitor a pain.
  • Sitting at approximately 12" deep, the base takes up a lot of space on most desktops, so it might be a good idea to prepare your desk for it, maybe a compatible stand, or by extending the depth of your desk in some way like I did.
  • Playing at night with games like Fallout and Skyrim, or any other game that has day/night cycle it becomes very distracting and most inconveniently you have to adjust yourself and move your viewing angle around just to see what you're doing.
ASUS PG348Q QHD Swift Curved
  • Very stable base that doesn't shake easily and the directional adjustments are quite flexible
  • The build quality is great and it just looks beautiful on my desk. The legs on the stand aren't identical so it might look a little off centered at the bottom, but that's just part of the design.
  • G-Sync is the main reason I chose this monitor and should be a deciding factor before purchase, you wont get its full potential on a AMD card.
  • Massive viewing space. I can fit two full size windows side-by-side. Great for doing development in Unity and watching videos at the same time.
  • G-Sync is amazing at minimizing screen tearing to almost non-existent levels, so's long as you match your games frame rate to the refresh rate

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Acer X34 Curved UltraWide QHD Monitor
  • If using Display Port, you need to change the input from HDMI to DP. It defaults to HDMI when First plugging it in. Then overclock to 100hZ and boom. This monitor is beautiful.
  • I really, really like this monitor. GSync only works with the display port. Native resolution on HDMI is 3440x1440 @ 50hz, but it the x34 can be overclocked up to 60hz. On the display port, the x34 defaults to 60hz at the same resolution, but overclocks to 100hz.
  • A few notes though, in order to get the 100hz you need to use a display port not an hdmi, the gsync will work through an hdmi but i felt it worked much better on the display port.
  • A few more USB-3 ports would have been welcome as there is more than enough real estate for more sockets.
  • When I connected it to my computer via DP I was pretty impressed, the smoothness and the size was great. However I noticed a flash every 30 seconds or so. I was messing with the over clock settings and changed it to 200hz wow did it look good for 30 seconds.
ASUS PG348Q QHD Swift Curved
  • Mine is connected via Display Link (cable included along with HDMI) to an EVGA GTX 1080Ti FTW3 iCX card and simple to set at 100Mhz.
  • Mine is connected via Display Link (cable included along with HDMI) to an EVGA GTX 1080Ti FTW3 iCX card and simple to set at 100Mhz.
  • My only major criticism is the port setup. The connection ports are fine IMO, but the spare USB ports are in the back with the DP and HDMI ports. There is a cover which snaps over the whole port bank.
  • With deep sleep turned on, I had a hard time connecting to DisplayPort and keeping an image.
