Summary: The monitor stays on for about 2 seconds, long enough to display the ACER logo, and if you have a computer plugged in it will display the startup splash for a brief moment. Then you can see the backlight turn off, and then nothing. The blue power light stays lit, my computer recognizes another monitor is plugged in. I tried, HDMI and DVI. Tried multiple sources (computer, ps3, cable box) and all of them same thing... 2 seconds of the acer logo and then it turns off.
Summary: Let me start by saying if I could give this review a -50 stars I wish I could. Maybe some of you don't have this problem, but I know of over 20 cases of buzzing from this monitor. If you don't know if yours buzzes, try going to a dark website such as Hardforum.com at 120Hz and see if the back of your monitor buzzes. Anyways, back to the point: I've tried to be so calm over the past month of dealing with Acer and their terrible service and support.
