Things to consider:

**Best part about this deal is Costco warranty/return policies which is extremely lenient and customer-centric.

***Compared to Acer's own limited warranty policies for monitors, Acer products are "allowed" to meet a threshold/failure rate of less than or equal to 5 dead sub-pixels before qualifying for warranty as a defective product within the 3-year limited warranty period.[/B]
Manufacturer Monitor Warranty Policy - https://www.acer.com/ac/en/IN/content/dead-pixel

Pro-Tip:
Quote from Fragster
:
People keep posting confusing comments..

1) You can order the monitor now for current price
2) Since this is online exclusive, you CANNOT get price adjustment in store (Store will simply ask u to return it).
3) To get price adjustment , you have to do it ON sale day (if this ever happens). Nov 30, ..goto Costco website, sign in and fill out the price adjustment form
https://customerservice.costco.co...com-orders

4) From what I was told by CSR, as long as the item gets on sale (regardless of stock), Costco will honor the price adjustment (as long as it's filled out while promo is active in their system).

5) The difference will simply get credited back to the original form of payment.

Hope this helps.

According to a reply from this reddit post from last year, Cyber monday started at 12AM PST/3AM EST: https://www.reddit.com/r/Costco/comments/e4st4s/cyber_monday_start_time/. Unless this changed for this year, I would imagine it would be the same. If someone could confirm with a live representative, that would be great.

My gaming laptop has DP1.4 but my work laptop only has USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 w/ DP support (which I assume is DP1.2). If I connect this monitor to my work laptop, what will happen? 60hz? 100hz? No video image?

It was 3AM EST

Yep, worked immediately when I plugged it in, make sure you're using a proper DP 1.4 cable (preferable VESA certified)

Yes, all freesync monitors work with G-Sync with a few customizations inside of NVIDIA control panel

I have the Monoprice 35", but I will be buying this without question if it is in stock.
Why this is better than the Monoprice 35"? Thanks.

I get flickering on it. This screen looks to be of better quality, better brightness, does HDR, and is 144hz.

I looked into this and general consensus is that this WILL NOT work. Most Costco employees online are saying they are told not to honor price adjustments for Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals and sales for items purchased beforehand. Of course, you can risk it but there isn't any guarantee you will get the price adjusted (most said if the item goes out of stock, Costco will definitely not price adjust).

This deal is super tempting but I will play it safe and hold out to the 30th just in case a similar Dell monitor goes on sale.

Edit: also found out that even using the Costco Visa Rewards CC will not qualify your purchase for the price rewind. It only applies to other stores' prices, not to Costco.

Just picked up a Gigabyte UW from Best Buy, how does this Acer compare? Might be worth it just for Costco's policies.

Would this be more than perfect for a Series X down the road? Or should I look for a full 4k model? If I don't need this much for a console lemme know. Will also be working 9-5 with the monitor too.

Is this worth extra $50 compare to Samsung ultrawide 34inch(s34j55) i just bought from Costco even if I don't play games. Should I return it and get this one instead?

I'm in the same boat. They seem practically identical.

For productivity, you can't beat an ultrawide like this. It's incredible.

Look into Xbox Series X supporting Ultrawide resolutions though. I doubt most games will implement it.

You might be better off with a large 4k 144hz monitor.

For the curious, I wanted to know how this would work with nVidia:
Quote :
All AMD GPUs starting with the 2nd iteration of Graphics Core Next support FreeSync.
NVidia 10-series, 16-series and 20-series GPUs with driver version 417.71 or higher support FreeSync.

Thanks for the reply. I will check out the series x info. I am assuming your right though!

Just to be clear Nvidia's 10, 16 and 20 series support FreeSync but how well it'll work depends on the monitor. Some work perfect while others flicker or blink while some won't work at all. I believe they have a list of tested monitors and I can't speak for this monitor.

I am wondering the same thing. This seems to be a new model. Cannot find other useful informaton. According to my experience, it won't be office g-sync compatible unless stated for Acer, AOC, Gigabytes.
