Deal ends Oct. 02. According to flyer.
So order being cancelled is probably because of no stock.

DISCLAIMER: I neither advocate or guarantee performance of my ICC profile that I'm sharing. Use it at your own risk.

Updated ICC profile has been uploaded along with PDF reports! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing

Settings are as follows:
Mode: User
Gamma: 2.2
Brightness: 27 (for 120 cd/m2)
Rgain: 47
Ggain: 50
Bgain: 51

All other settings left at default factory but feel free to adjust performance settings to taste.

Commentary: Man, this monitor calibrated really nicely second time around! Probably because I remembered a bit more of what I needed to do for set up.

Gamut coverage is 99.8% sRGB, 85.2% Adobe RGB and 90.2% DCI P3. Gamut volume is 134.5%, 92.7% and 95.3% respectively. I was able to achieve a measured whitepoint of 6480K. Colour Temp, Gamma and Grayscale all tracked well, especially for a budget screen.

Enjoy!

I found also the option to overclock this monitor but unfortunately doing so, I need turn off freesyncs

just to know. only people like me with rx free sync graphic card has this option already enable or everyone see the freesyncs on?
Also, my games automatically recognize freesyncs on the monitor or I need turn on something on my graphic card setting or even on games options?
For people with AMD HD series card. according to here http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id- ... esync.html
From AMD's website...

All AMD Radeon™ graphics cards in the AMD Radeon™ HD 7000, HD 8000, R7 or R9 Series will support AMD FreeSync™ technology for video playback and power-saving purposes. The AMD Radeon™ R9 295X2, 290X, R9 290, R9 285, R7 260X and R7 260 GPUs additionally feature updated display controllers that will support dynamic refresh rates during gaming

What do these drivers do?

And that URL looks suspicious. Why is it "acer-us.com". I saw a Google Ad as first thing in that page. I've never seen that and especially not on a support page.

Changed OD setting to extreme on hdmi but still 60hz
try go to right click on desktop and display settings
than go advanced settings and click on the bottom on display adapter proprieties. there you should be able to change from 60 to 75

Ok so picked mine up from local store. Dinner I had pre-paid it was ready to pickup when I got there.

First impressions were that it's super light and the box had lots of buzzwords on it. Was genuinely excited.

Took it out of the box, plugged it in over HDMI and turned it on.

Immediate reaction due to awful backlight bleed from all sides was: Oh no, is this a TN panel?

Did a double take and took another look at the box and sure enough it says IPS. I'm confused.

When Windows loads to to the desktop with that crappy blue wallpaper, not convinced yet.

Then straight to Youtube and play the Peru 8K sample video to tesg out colors on full screen.

The colors are indeed a little oversaturated OOTB, but impressive color detail overall. It definitely doesn't look like a TN panel now.

Next switched profile to sRGB and enable performance mode to Extreme like I read in this thread and enabled refresh rate display.

Looks like I'm stuck at 75.

Now play some fast action videos and woah, that judder is making my eyes hurt.

Freesync is on. But, I don't have a Freesync GPU or a high-end GPU or a DisplayPort to test the overclock refresh rate and performance.

And, at 32" the pixel density is a bit low and 1440p seems overkill. Super comfortable viewing from about 3 feet away with no eye strain though. I'm coming from a BenQ GW2765HT though which was a 27" 1440p which was also easy to see from 3 feet away with no eye strain with a crisp pixel density and super sharp text.

So far mixed feelings since I cannot test the full functionality of this display, particularly the overclock-ability of this panel and if that would be enjoyable with an NVIDIA GPU or Freesync with an AMD GPU that can actually use Freesync (RX 580 should be a good candidate).

I'm hoping someone else here can fill in the gaps on the following:
1. High refresh rate with overclock paired with NVIDIA GPU
2. Freesync with AMD GPU and overall experience.
