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.
Just checked with Costco.com customer service via. chat and they noted the price adjustment for lowered pricing within 30-days of purchase will work even on Cyber Monday. And in the case it doesn't, just return it and buy it at the discounted price on November 30th. You can't lose with Costco! Cool

Just picked up a Gigabyte UW from Best Buy, how does this Acer compare? Might be worth it just for Costco's policies.
So spec-wise they would probably be comparable 1:1, the big win with this would be the convenience to just walk into any Costco at anytime and return for a full-refund in case any product issue or you just don't want the product, Costco would definitely be most accomodating.

Quote from WittyThread338
:
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?
Just looked at the specs on that Samsung vs. this monitor. This is a curved ultra-wide vs. normal ultra-wide (a bit more immersive and you won't need to turn your head so much to follow the entire monitor when sitting directly in front of the monitor). The Samsung refresh rate and response rate are 75Hz/4ms vs. 144Hz/1ms of this monitor. So the most important specs are a bit better on this monitor.

Is there a shipping cost on this? Can I get this in warehouse?

It's an annoying policy, can buy another at the lower price and return the originally purchased one if they won't price match. Not sure why they encourage that over price adjusting.

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.
3-year limited warranty through the manufacturer but Costco is known for their super lenient return policy years later. That's how they keep their member confidence. Customer satisfaction is the key to their success.

This is 34" and curved vs. 32" no-curve. This also has a better resolution and response time.

So the XV340CK is a non-curved monitor with 250 nits brightness which many complain is not enough brightness for a 2K monitor in the daytime. I have no issue with my XV340CK with it's 250 nits but will be upgrading for sure. The limited manufacturer warranty is also not great so the appeal of buying this monitor from Costco for any future issues is the biggest win this deal's got going for it. That and it is significantly lower in price than any 34" curved UWQHD monitor with these specs that I've seen in 2020 thus far.

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.
and if you don't game and don't need 1ms response times you'll be fine right?

Any thoughts or experience on the compatibility with Nvidia Gtx 1660ti which supports Gsync. But i know it works with some free syncs.

Return it and then say you'll buy it back at the sale price + a little extra off for open box. Win!
there is a reason bf sales are limited. fcfs. if you can grab one of the limited stock on the sale day, feel free to return this. And many stores dont let you rebuy a returned item right away.
