    Excellent monitor, a few hiccups though

    The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that I can't give it a 4.5. Mounting this on my wall was easy, however, it did give me some issues after that. It didn't like the set-up I originally had with my other ASUS monitor. Because I stream, I had two HDMI switches for whenever I was streaming, and whenever I wasn't. It seems like the monitor did not like that at all. However, once I directly connected my console to the monitor, it worked perfectly. I replaced my capture card so I could use my monitor to its full potential.

    After all of this, I am really loving the monitor. The colors are vibrant, and I love that I can get 4KUHD or 1440P. The HDR works really well. Games like Fortnite and Destiny 2 look amazing.

    If you are willing to go through a bit of a struggle in the beginning, then I recommend this monitor.

    Highly Recommend!

    I was on the fence on whether or not I should get this monitor since it has an LCD display and no adjustable height stand, but I’m happy I purchased it. This monitor really makes colors pop and it perfect if you have a next gen console! Running games at 1440p 120hz is honestly amazing. It’s way more expensive to purchase the counterpart (VG27AQL1A) with the adjustable height stand, so I decided to settle with this. The height of the monitor is perfect (at least for me) so I don’t see a need to adjust it anyways. ASUS also integrated a blue light filter that you can toggle on or off if you’re concerned about exposure to blue light while gaming for long periods of time. This monitor is definitely worth the money! Highly recommend!

    Viotek - GNV29CB Ultrawide Curved 29-Inch 120Hz Gaming Monitor - 3-Year Warranty (HDMI, Display Port)
    Description

    VIOTEK returns with an all-in-one solution for gamers, creators and productivity enthusiasts. Beautiful image quality, game-winning features and top-notch color accuracy. That's the promise of the GNV29CB, an ultrawide 29-inch curved gaming monitor. The GNV29CB is a compact display that delivers an UWFHD 2560x1080p monitor resolution with a 21:9 monitor aspect ratio. Its 120hz monitor max refresh rate gives you video fluidity that's great for video conferencing, casual gaming and T.V. binging. The VA panel pushes 16.7 million colors with a 107% sRGB color gamut. So colors are truer to life and the 3000:1 contrast ratio (1M:1 DCR) means you get inky blacks; bright whites; and RGBs that are vivid and rich. Its super-tight 1200R curvature creates a more immersive experience. In games that natively support a 21:9 aspect ratio, this desktop monitor reveals more of the content without a lot of head/eye movement. AMD FreeSync with low-framerate compensation (LFC) minimizes image distortion on high-octane games, incl. ghosting and stuttering. Even if the refresh rate drops below 48Hz, you’re covered. (Also works with G-SYNC.) GAMEPLUS crosshairs helps make ever shot a bullseye. And the user-activated FPS/RTS display optimization brings out the extra detail in the shadows. Its 4ms (GTG) overdrive response time adds rapid-fire speed into the mix. Two HDMI ports (HDMI 1.4 & HDMI 2.0). One DisplayPort 1.2. One 3.5mm audio out. Plenty of options to connect to the devices you want. And with 75x75 VESA, you can mount the GNV29CB to a wall or attach it to a VESA monitor mount. The ultrawide 21:9 gives you more real estate, while the low-bezel frame takes up less desk space. Picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-by-picture (PBP) gives you even more options for working smarter. You'll also get the best-in-market dead pixel policy and 3-year limited warranty, backed by an American company. Need assistance? Our expert customer service is available via chat, email or phone.

    5 Features
  • ULTRAWIDE 21:9 MONITOR: The full-hd monitor resolution (2560x1080p) delivers pixels packed with detail and brilliant colors with a 107% sRGB color gamut for high color accuracy. And the ultrawide screen real estate gives you more room to enhance productivity.
  • GAME-READY 120HZ MONITOR: The fast refresh rate means smoother video transitions with zero dropped frames. Perfect for movies and video conferencing. Easier on the eyes, the higher refresh rates help reduce eyestrain during extended use.
  • ALL-IN-ONE SOLUTION: Work. Play. Create. Experience. From the true cinema-quality multimedia display to the dual-input PIP/PBP integrated productivity tools. This compact desktop monitor works for entrepreneurs, casual gamers and content creators alike.
  • VIOTEK GAMING SUITE: Smooth gameplay. Optimized colors. Sure-shot targeting. We know what it takes to play and win. That’s why we give players all the tools needed to play harder and better: AMD FreeSync, FPS/RTS optimization, GAMEPLUS crosshairs.
  • SUPER-CURVED & FULLY IMMERSIVE: The tighter 1200R monitor curvature adds comfort to your daily viewing and contributes to a greater sense of immersion and realism to games and movies. The result? A more enjoyable viewing/gaming experience.

    Great WFH Monitor, Price is fantastic.

    I work from home. Recently, I have had to add a second laptop to my desk, eliminating my dual monitor setup. I bought this to replace the dual monitors. So far so good. Unboxing impressions.

    1) Very well packaged. The manufacturer went to great lengths to prevent damage.

    2) The setup was simple. The stand goes together with two screws. Easy peasy.

    3) Port access is tough. You have to remove a panel to get to it easily. The panel adds nothing because it is behind the monitor. Why have it at all?

    4) Picture quality is good with HDMI and display port. Display port is a bit sharper, but HDMI works well too.

    All told it seems to do everything I need. If you are WFH and need more screen real estate, this is a great choice. For $250, it is a no-brainer.

    Good monitor, no audio output

    I was mostly looking for a quality monitor, which this happens to be. I would say the only negative thing about this monitor is that it does not have an audio output on it. Therefore, you are going to be forced to use some sort of headphone jack to hear any sort of audio from it. Other than that, if you are fine with not being able to hear anything from the monitor itself it is a great purchase and it is a great size as well .

    Monitor is near flawless

    Havent had this display long and other than a little back light bleed in the lower left corner this monitor is perfect.

    I can confirm it is the X34p version even though the picture is of the older model X34.

    I have it running at 120 hz and have been throwing about every game I own at it and its performing flawlessly.

    The extra field of view is amazing as this is my first ultra wide.

    Great job on this refurb Acer.

    Don't let "refurbish" fool you

    This product "can" be better than a new in box one. Sure the box and the provided cables are garbage and I suggest purchasing a newer display port along with this but the monitor itself is amazing and Here's why.

    This is an "Acer" refurb, meaning that it has gone through additional quality checks. Most of these screens are returned because of a dead pixel or could not overclock to 120hz. So Acer fixes those issues. You're almost guaranteed a working, 120hz display with these refurbs.

    Atleast the last 2 i've purchased have been that way.

    Absolute, unmitigated trash. DO NOT BUY.

    These refurbs are absolute garbage. Don't fall for it. Just buy a real monitor in good condition, you are NOT getting a deal.

    My first unit started glitching out when overclocked, with black lines all across the screen and generally acting funky. I ordered a replacement, that one arrived with a cracked panel and was busted out of the box.

    These are BAD refurbs. They come in a brown paper box with the cables sloppily rubber-banded together. The paperwork is printed badly on printer paper. I don't know who's doing them, but they're terrible. I'd hope it's not acer, that would be embarrassing. I'm stuck with a super busted monitor now since the replacement I ordered took over a week to arrive and pushed me past my replacement period on my original monitor, which has weird spotting in the backlight, tons of light bleed and again the aforementioned problem that it can't actually be overclocked to its full speed.

    Don't buy this.

    Spend the extra couple hundred bucks and get something new from a better manufacturer. These refurbs are garbage. You've been warned.

    Great Monitor

    This is an awesome monitor with incredible features. The resolution is great for multi-tasking with several windows. I love the USB hub and even charge my iPhone with one of the ports. The clarity of text is out standing. I am giving 4 stars because the refurbished packaging was very poor. Mediocre packaging and some cables looked like they had a sticker or glue stuck to it. I ended up returning the refurbished and paying a little more for a new one.

    Dead Pixels and light bleed. No quality control

    I received this monitor today and I was so upset. Their is dead pixels that form a line shaped like a check mark on the lower portion of the monitor above the task bar. I tried a Pixel test and it is indeed dead pixels. I thought it was a crack in the screen. This monitor has major light bleed in dark scenes. When games load their is a big circle of light bleed on the left middle of the screen and the top and bottom edges and the right edge of the monitor.

    Was in the market for a gaming monitor when this one was recommended to me. Crisp display and well built/sturdy. I had to get used to playing games with such low latency from the monitor that i missed a few QTEs, but that must mean it's working as it should. Worth the purchase in my opinion.
