Cumbersome On-Screen Display
There are a bunch of buttons in the bottom right-hand corner of the XR341CK, which give you control over the various technologies, functions, profiles and what not. I found the OSD a bit cumbersome to use, but you get used to it.
Pressing the second last button to the right will display the OSD, providing you with options to get you through your Acer XR341CK. Pressing this button doesn't get you into the main screen of the OSD, so you have to press the button again (which is the green right arrow in the photo above).
Pressing that button will display the above menu, where you'll have to tap it again to get to the main screen in the OSD.
Here we have the main OSD display, where you can get through the menu easily enough with the buttons on the bottom of the screen. It's not perfect, but it'll do. I'd like to see this improved in a future revision of the screen, though.
Going down to the next notch on the OSD provides you with color adjustments on the XR341CK, where you can change the gamma, color temperature, enable or disable sRGB mode, and more.
The third menu lets you change the language on the screen, the OSD timeout, and more. You can see here that we have an adjustment for 'refresh rate num' that can be set to on/off - this allows you to see the refresh rate on your screen in a similar way to how FRAPS works - displaying the refresh rate in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
The fourth menu is where a bunch of display-orientated options lay, where you can change the input from DisplayPort to HDMI, the DP format, and you can choose to adjust the daisy chain option too - in case you're plugging multiple DP-based monitors into your PC.
The final menu in the OSD provides you with the information you need to see; the main source of input, the resolution and refresh rate.
