What customers say about "Key Specs"
Acer XR341CK Curved UltraWide QHD Display
  • You wouldn’t think an xtra 15 FPS would make a difference but now I go nuts if I don’t have 75 FPS. For the costs of the monitor it can’t be beat. Do not expect it to preform like a acer predator.
  • Gaming at 3440x1440 is really nice for those games that support the resolution.
  • I bought this for size and refresh rate, and picture quailty and it has not disappointed me yet in those regards.
  • I think the freesync range is 30 - 75 hertz and games feel way more buttery smooth than I have ever been used to. No screen tearing through the whole range and no more V sync!! :D
  • 75hz runs great with (30-75hz) freesync but with 1 fury X card it can be slightly tough to hit the 75hz it using high or ultra settings in games
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.

What customers say about "Display"
Acer XR341CK Curved UltraWide QHD Display
  • Colors are great with this IPS monitor and the ppi is perfect so no blurry letters.
  • Great colors, no dead pixels, freesync works perfectly.
  • Vibrant IPS display with high color accuracy, I did the best I could do without a calibrator and it looks fantastic - 21:9 gives more space for productivity, gaming immersion, and wide aspect ratio movies fill the entire screen (think black bars top and bottom)
  • Freesync is an adaptive sync technology which is fantastic and eliminates screen tearing in games. The range is also great, as it works from 30-75 hz, very wide.
  • Free-sync...more soon but this along with 100% sRGB is my main reason for choosing this over several other panels, besides backlight reports
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.

What customers say about "Features"
Acer XR341CK Curved UltraWide QHD Display
  • Has the most important ergonomic settings: tilt and height - more than enough not just gimmicks. Stand is art itself and perfectly fits a full-size keyboard in between support brackets, very sturdy and metal.
  • USB 3.0 4 port hub works surprisingly well and hides a lot of other cables (additionally places transmitters in a good spot)
  • I have owned this since day 1 of release (late July). Not a dead pixel, not a single issue with performance. I am in love with this monitor and want to have it's babies.
  • Big screen is a plus. its like a 27in monitor with an extra 8in to the sides. nice color reproduction. like the ambient lighting on the bottom that has several color settings and actually helps light up the keyboard is is no to far from the monitor.
  • The extra real estate and slight curve is perfect for general computing, and terrific for gaming (I'm better orientated)
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.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Acer XR341CK Curved UltraWide QHD Display
  • FYI this comes with an HDMI 2.0 and Displayport cable, I bought a Displayport and now have to send it back because I didn't read the package contents.
  • Remember to use he BizLink connections for 70+fps. Included BizLink cord is very short. I would recommend buying a longer one.
  • To be sure, everything arrived with all the cables, and everything powers up OK. But apparently you have to run an HMDI 1 or some other connection to your computer. I admit, my computer is older (2013), but it does have the USB connections.
  • Noise coming out of speaker when setting brightness/contrast lower than 50% especially when using DDC / CI.
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.
