    Given the first line of that article I dunno about the May listing they said. Frankly given the feedback I have seen for the PG348Q vs the X34 I am waiting however long it takes for the PG348Q.

    Yes but my point of contention is that they start the article with "ASUS this week began to ship its first gaming curved ultra-wide display, the ROG Swift PG348Q" and then go on to say it will ship in May.

    So, I told myself that if the X34 ever showed up on their recertified site... I'd buy it.
    Well, it did. And since I have this magical ability to 'randomly' check up on an item when it happens to be there, I managed to snag it during the 2-3 hour window that they were available. :P
    [Keep in mind, I still have my pre-order for the ASUS with Amazon. Worst case scenario I can re-sell one or the other if one isn't to my liking. :P]

    So it's arrived today and I've been testing it in and setting it up, etc. etc...
    And for a "Recertified"? It's pretty near perfect.
    There IS a little bit of backlight bleed on the edges of the top right, top left, and bottom left corners (weirdly not the bottom right?), but... it's honestly pretty negligible. And really, it only shows up if there's absolute black EVERYWHERE (because if there's something brighter than black near it, you'll see THAT color, not backlight bleed).
    Is for the refresh rate overclock? I was actually expecting it not to work, or at best 90-95 Hz. .. NOPE! 100 Hz, perfectly fine. [Tested playing it in CS:GO and Fallout 4]
    If there is coil whine? I can honestly say I don't notice it... but then again, I rarely sit in pure silence to hear such small details anyway...

    All in all, worth the $730. ^_~
    I'll still be waiting for the PG348Q, but until that time... Acer has come through with a REFURB better than ASUS has with their whole PR.

    nowinstock.net?

    Is that 730 after tax and/or shipping?

    My state doesn't charge tax, and shipping is free from their site.
    $730 was the cost to me. If your state charges tax on online retailers, then it'll obviously be higher.

    How has no-one posted to this thread in a whole week? LOL.

    Anyway - I've been watching you all talk and this has pretty much been my one stop shop for all information regarding these issues being discussed.

    I wanted to thank you all for the information you gave and the help you posted.

    Also, I have good news, my monitor shipped and is on it's way. I got mine from Amazon on February 25th.

    If anyone wants to see image confirmation, I'll post it, but otherwise you should check your amazon orders, that is, if anyone has maintained faith in both Amazon and Asus... I kind of lost faith, but I kept the order just in case, so I'll definitely post pictures once I get it.

    Good News, Spider

    I'm glad to hear Amazon is starting to work their way through the pre-orders. I didn't get mine in quite as early as you did, but I did get in before they took the page offline, and got assurances from a CSR that it was in the system and would be shipped ASAP. No change in my order status yet, but I'm hopeful it might be coming soon. Enjoy your new monitor!
