Daily flickering issues! 5/29/2020 2:20:59 PM

Pros: - Beautiful display
- No dead pixels

Cons: - FLICKER
- FLICKER
- FLICKER

Overall Review: When I pay hundreds of dollars for a monitor, I expect not to have these types of issues. When I first got the monitor, it was great. Not a month later, I started noticing occasional flickering. As the months have gone by, it's gotten worse. It's currently at the point where it's flickering several times a day.

I've tried several different cables. I've also tried 2 different desktops and a laptop, same flickering issue. I'm highly dissatisfied.

Flickers 4/8/2020 9:12:06 AM

Pros: It works as expected. 2k resolution. Looks nice.

Cons: Flickers. The reviews are totally accurate here. I get a random flicker and it's really jarring.

Overall Review: I wouldn't buy this one again and I'll be avoiding Acer going forward.

Great! So far I definitely have a good panel. Update: I was wrong. 3/10/2020 10:58:39 AM

Pros: Look at the specs! This is an awesome monitor for a very decent price.

Update: See Cons sections.

Cons: Flickering reported by enough people that it made me nervous to purchase this unit; truth be told I haven't seen anything even remotely bad yet.

Update: I have now started to experience occasional blackouts where there once were none now that we are outside of the warranty period (about 6 months of ownership now). Definitely disappointing but somewhat expected with the reviews. I was hoping I might get lucky but no. We will see if it gets worse as time goes on; hopefully this monitor can live on as a second monitor or something. Not super awesome for a first time Acer experience; I will probably go back to one of the brands that have served me better over the years....and try not to cheap out as much as I did this time.

Overall Review: Very awesome for the price! I am not a guru with monitors but I've definitely used bad ones before and this thing is amazing! If that changes I will certainly update my review.

Generally good. Flickering, Black-out issues 1/23/2020 11:08:54 AM

Pros: Good performance for the price, I really like the colors in HDR mode.
Lots of options in the menus to tweak your settings for your visual pleasure.

Cons: -lots of flickering started about 8 months after purchase, first occasionally, now....It's flickering 3,4,5,6 times a night. VERY annoying for a 10 month old monitor.

-Sometimes the screen just goes black, and will come back up after 4 or 5 seconds. As a gamer, that is an issue.

Overall Review: would easily be 5 stars without these issues. I'm disappointed in the apparent quality of the product (from the inside) however, without these issues the product would be a great deal.

Will seek to get this monitor taken care of through warranty in the near future.

The product you expect. 12/6/2019 9:12:47 PM

Pros: -1440p
-144hz
-IPS display

Cons: -The blacks are not the best

-It does not handle brightness gradients super well, there is a tendency for some banding, especially when the distinctions are between dark colors

-The stand is surprisingly difficult to put on. I genuinely felt like I was going to break it, so either I was doing something wrong, or its just weird.


-Speakers aren't all that good
(I'm really not sure why anyone would get this for the speakers, but if you were really set on high-end built-in sound, then this is not the monitor for you.)

Overall Review: (Almost) 6 month review

This is a cheap IPS 1440p 144hz monitor. It excels at being exactly that. There are compromises, but they aren't too bad, and I am happy with my purchase.

While I don't have this issue, I do feel like I need to mention the flickering. I was pretty worried about this, because of all the reviews that talk about the flickering or the blue rectangle problem, but it ended up being a non issue for me. Some people have mentioned it may be an issue with hdmi and I have been using display port exclusively, but I'm not really sure how that would work, so just be forewarned.

Flicker, Flicker, Flicker 11/18/2019 2:19:35 PM

Pros: - 1440p
- 144 Hz
- IPS

Cons: - Flickering
- 120 Hz for HDR

Overall Review: I would not recommend this product given its current build quality. As other reviews have mentioned the product started strong but at less than six months I've run into the same flickering, mostly on the left side of the screen. The specifications at this price point are very enticing but the return on your investment is not worth it over the very short term of less than a year.
