    It's not a recall, people with the colour banding issues (problem early Oct) where just told to return them for a reflash, Acer have never told all buyers to return every monitor.

    You have 7 days to decide for yourself, that's what I did and after swapping it with my beloved 4k Sync several times over the week I'm deffo keeping mine.

    This scan line issue seems rather puzzling. Not sure what the explanation is and why some seem to suffer more than others. Maybe something to do with the panel being OC'd?

    Some say its related to running an higher hz than your average fps, this other guy is blaming low outage in the power brick.

    The DSA gives at least 14 days no matter where you buy it from.

    Some retailers give more, where I work it's 45.

    Yup CCR is 14 days.

    Some big etailers give a 30 day window.

    It's physically possible for me to see them, but not from my usual sitting position. If no one had told me of them I would never see them. I played for a good few hours last night and didn't see a thing.

    So I just tested Witcher 3 all settings maxed including hair with 8XAA and down clocked my TX I managed to see 40FPS and no lines anywhere on screen.

    Going to forget about the scan lines now they only appear in the NV demo.

    never understood why people buy somethin and test it for faults? if it doesn't effect what u are using it for? (games) then why stress out about it?

    It's common now with TV's and monitors, thing is once you get into that malarky you'll never be 100% happy with a screen again as all panels have at least one fault or bad point against another.

    People over on avforums going through 7-10 TV's abusing John Lewis excellent customer service.

    I can understand if your panel is horrible and is really bad compared to the average one but some people will literally send them back for anything.

    Cheers I intend too.

    Bang on here if you see oat...

    Because it cost over a grand 3 times the cost of a good monitor. It should be pritty fawless for that price tagg in my book. Same as I stressed my TX when I got it.

    i know how much it costs as i've preordered one... i spent £750 on a samsung 950D when they was brand new! it had some BLB but i didn't moan about it cause in games i couldn't see it :)

    but i ain't gonna sit there trying to find the most meaningless faults with it.. id rather play the games i'm gonna enjoy on it!

    Not too butt in but if i was spending a grand on ANY PC equipment i would expect it to be flawless and not have any faults.
