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 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.
So buy twice? If cannot price match then return the monitor and buy again during the holiday?

Yeah I was gonna say, they better expect a ton of returns of used monitors if they won't price match.

Just picked up a Gigabyte UW from Best Buy, how does this Acer compare? Might be worth it just for Costco's policies.
Mine's arriving today! I probably would have waited to save $50 on what look like equally well performing monitors but I can't be made about a 34" 144hz UW for $400. The only annoying thing I see from the spec sheet on the Acer is the 75mm mounting pattern. It also doesn't specify how long the warranty is.

Can anyone tell me if this monitor offers picture-by-picture (2x 1720x1440 displays running off separate inputs) or no?

Also, what are the odds this monitor will work with Gsync? I do not see that it is certified to do so.

I think Costco doesn't do price match even to its own store. I bought toothpastes 1 day before discount. I can only return it and buy at discount price instead of get a price match. I would say hold off until on sale. $449.99 is not attractive.

Anyone know the freesync range on this monitor? I can't find it listed on any of the technical documents.

I think Costco have a life-time return period for monitors. It is the best of the bests. Acer has 3 year limited warranty on monitors (link: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/con...d-warranty).
