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)

How does it compare to 34" Acer Nitro XV340CK 3440x1440 UltraWide 144Hz IPS Gaming Monitor $400 form BHPhoto? I like the one sold by Costco has 400nits.
XV340CK is flat vs EI342CKR curve. XV340CK has an IPS panel and IPS panels usually have slight premium over VA [gamingscan.com].

Depending on your needs. The IPS panel is worth the $50 difference at this size for me since I mainly do spreadsheets and web surfing and only do some casual gaming so a flat screen works better for me. 250 nits is plenty bright for brightest room condition in my experience.

Thank you for your advice. Yes, I prefer flat screen too. I only do casual gaming as well.

2 things.

1) I wouldn't risk buying it now and get fukked with no price matching later. Just wait for a month.

2) Costco monitor policy is awesome. NOTE monitors fall under general "electronics" and NOT under computer or TV so technically, lifetime refund.

I bought a 32" HP Omen monitor 3 years ago and it finally died. I simply boxed it up , took it to my local store and they issued full store credit ($299 plus taxes). I walked out with the 32" Acer Nitro with $50 out of pocket.

Will give the Acer to my son and then get the ultrawide off this deal.

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


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.


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.

If what you say is true, this comment should be upvoted more. Do you have a chat history you can post in case we decided to take the plunge and have something we can use to back it up? But like you said, shouldn't be that be of a deal to return it and reorder right?

Also, if this panel is similar to the curved non ultrawide Nitro version, then it should be VERY good for a VA.

I have the 32" curved non ultrawide (also released at Costco some months ago and appears to be a Costco exclusive for Acer). Very minimal banding and no ghosting from what I've seen. I play Modern Warfare every night and no issues with ghosting/lag. AMD sync works brilliant.

Any idea how quickly you're approved for price adjustment? Will you know the same day, or do you only know it was approved after you get the credit back on your card within 3-5 days?

I get flickering on it. This screen looks to be of better quality, better brightness, does HDR, and is 144hz.
Thanks for the info. Was sad I missed out on the deal and tried out a 43" 4ktv which seemed way too big.

I want to use this for gaming and work. For work when I share screen is there an option to share half the screen? Don't want it to look super small for my coworkers
I have a similar question, but typically you can share a specific window instead of a screen. That should address any potential issues.

I called and they couldn't give me a firm answer. Wouldn't be surprised if they implement that this season.

Great specs for monitor. I believe price adjustment would be from when you receive monitor vs order online. The date you receive it should start clock (it does from a returns standpoint at most places).

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