Sold the card for a loss and broke even on the power supply. And I didn't have to pay the deductible for my home owners insurance from that thing burning my house down.

Offer Up is a straight up dumpster fire. I got ripped off on there, luckily I was able to get my funds back. Guy was selling a 6800xt, I shoulda realized when he said that it got mailed back to him that something was wrong. Best part is, I reported him and after everything was resolved the guy was still selling the same card using the same story. Offer Up didnt seem to have any interest in taking care of it.

I have this monitor and it’s great (besides the peak brightness, and subsequently, the HDR). It’s a shame this is happening to so many people. I bought mine last year, though, so I’m guessing it’s the newer ones and some new component they’re using causing this cuz I had never seen it before this holiday season.

342

u/Capokid 7700k 32gb 1080 Dec 03 '21

Companies will change out the parts for cheaper ones specifically for sale on black Friday. They dont change the model or serial, they just swap the parts out and dont care if anyone notices.

Im betting they did that this time, so any of these monitors bought in the past week are likely sus but after next week they will likely go back to the higher quality parts they were using previously.

u/LexiTehGallade Ryzen 9 3900X | ROG Strix 2080 Ti Dec 03 '21

What happens if someone simply claims warranty correctly? If the serial is the same and all that, surely they'd just be given a new, normal one and then when the broken one gets back to the manufacturer they've just lost out. They can't surely be banking on people to not bother to return it, can they?

That’s such a nice feature! I wish mine had a smoking option. You could also add rgb to it for extra effect lol

In all seriousness though, that sucks :(

Its the new smoke feature. Awesome gaming atmosphere, terrible aim and game play.

u/yem_sno Dec 03 '21

I'm using this monitor for a year now. It is used everyday for at least 12 hours. No smoke from me. Cross fingers. My sympathy goes to you bro.

Wtf? I’m pretty satisfied with my Acer Nitro 5 laptop and Nitro VG240YS 165hz monitor! Acer should do something about this

u/Pirate_Banjo Dec 03 '21

Pretty cool they’re adding smoke effects to monitors during Black Friday sales

It's actually pre-owned by Snoop Dogg. I'd open it to check if there's weed stashed in there.

I'm guessing it's not supposed to do that.

Guess you got the hip version, it likes to vape.

u/obersankoff Dec 03 '21

That's a feature. You can smell the fear of your enemies.

u/tok90235 Dec 03 '21

Oh no, you are letting the magic smoke out. Never let the magic smoke goes out

u/Educational_Way_1209 Dec 03 '21

Companies use cheaper parts for products they sell specifically for Black Friday.

u/LamentablePuns Desktop Dec 03 '21

It's not smoke, it's steam, steam from the Steam games we're playing.

u/reallyConfusedPanda Dec 03 '21

It seems Hot singles are VERY close to your area

u/hrothni Dec 03 '21

I smell a recall coming

u/voidspaceistrippy Cats are cool Dec 03 '21

Thank you for your sacrifice OP. I was considering buying this almost exact model. Looks like I'll go with the Gigabyte version lol

2

u/gnarliest_gnome Dec 03 '21

Got a link to that one by chance? I'm not giving Acer my $ after this.

2

u/voidspaceistrippy Cats are cool Dec 03 '21

Amazon Newegg

The Acer model you bought came out in 2020, but this Gigabyte version came out this year. It's probably the same panel because it's almost the same price with the same specs. Please let me know if this Gigabyte version fails you too because that would mean the panels themselves are bad :')

u/ghost_chillie Dec 03 '21

Was the deal THAT hot!?

2

u/OminousCreampie Dec 03 '21

Bro that's sooooo shitty I'm sorry for your misfortune man that sucks.

2

u/gnarliest_gnome Dec 03 '21

Not a huge deal, just going to box it back up and return it. Got it on Amazon so it's easy.

2

u/OminousCreampie Dec 03 '21

Yeah but I'm thinking from the perspective of getting something new to have it shit out especially after knife battling people on the internet for deals lol. Just a shitty situation, I hope acer doesn't try to fuck people over with this product.

2

u/gnarliest_gnome Dec 03 '21

I hope acer doesn't try to fuck people over with this product.

That's why I posted the video, to spread the word. Hopefully Acer investigates it and makes it right.

That's what happens with Black Friday / Cyber Monday sales. Companies replace their parts with cheaper inferior ones, that's how they lower the prices.

u/Zkelly52 Dec 03 '21

Making soap ?

When your monitor takes up vaping and doesn't want to work anymore.
