I've tried to reset to default settings, with, and without G-Sync, with and without overclocking..
a friend bought the same monitor, his work perfectly

Dear Lachlan,
We are sorry to hear you are unhappy with your Acer monitor. All monitors sold out of the US will come with a US power cord; the only thing you would need is an adapter for the plug end of the US power cord to fit the outlets outside North America. There is a dead pixel policy posted here, that you might check out: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/IN/content/dead-pixel. If you need help with this please contact Acer support for assistance:

Great at first, but only a year into it and the burn-in / back light smearing has really gotten bad.

Pros: - Checks a lot of boxes
- 1440p, 144hz, G-Sync, good size, good price, good colors
- setting 3 of these up in surround mode is amazing*. *(when the game supports it, when the stars align, when your specs are high enough)

Cons: - For the first 6-10 months, I'd be hard pressed to come up with any cons. Most of my bad experiences came with fighting with my 1080 ti sli setup, and having to turn on and off surround mode all the time.
- after a year or so I started noticing a really weird light smearing effect coming from the top of the monitors, like one of the layers of the panel was melting or something. In the areas that this is affecting, it gets really bad, quick burn-in. I've tried running burn-in repair videos, and that clears up the burn-in parts over a couple of days, but they will get burn-in again with a browser sitting in one spot for a few hours.

Other Thoughts: - the monitors I was replacing with these predators were a random mish-mash of things purchased as long as a decade ago. Even the 10 year old 1200p gateway monitor never experienced any kind of burn-in. I honestly thought this was a relic of CRT monitors and older plasma tv's.

I don't know if this is just a flaw with Acer's TN panels, or Acer's build process in general, but I'd be hard pressed to buy a predator again after going through this.

I did learn an important, although expensive lesson, though. Surround gaming is not quite ready for prime time, yet. It's a major pain to swap in and out of it. A lot of games don't support it, and even the ones that do, don't support it well. The content in the side monitors get stretched horribly, and some need graphics power that just doesn't exist yet. When I replace these in 6 months or so, I'm going with an ultra widescreen g-sync center monitor, surrounded by some cheap 1080's or 1440's or so.

Getting worse

Pros: Looks nice, fast response time

Cons: Blacks are not that great, color is meh.

Other Thoughts: Started having a purple line run down screen. I temporarily fixed it by apply pressure on frame in the area of line. It came back after a month. Started getting screen flickering that got progressively worse. Sent it in for RMA, got it back a month later. Line is gone (how long that will last). Flickering is still there but was less frequent. Over time (2 weeks) it is becoming worse and worse again. Now I dont know if I should pay 50 to ship it to them again, or just cut my losses get a new monitor from somebody else. Getting with Acer customer service is not a smooth process either, but once you get there it is pretty good. The time frame was a little ridiculous, but sent it off before Christmas. Sent out dec 21, they received dec 27, got it back Jan 14, 24 days and I might have to do it again... I also occasionally get the middle screen line, but to me that's a non issue compared to the others.

Dead pixel after 4 mouths of use.

Pros: Good picture and refresh rate.

Cons: Ghosting is really bad for a monitor of this price. I could handle that alone but I get a dead pixel after less then 5 months of use.

Other Thoughts: Expected better quality for the price, would not recommend.
