Expensive Junk

Matthew Leffler, Amazon
12 December 2008
  • Summary: Bought this about a year and a half ago, was really excited about it and I thought I went all out on my monitor but ... now it doesn't work and Gateway says that they are unaware of anyone else complaining. I told them to go online and look. Contacted the BBB and Gateway called me back to say again ... sorry sucker. Avoid this monitor and most likely avoid Gateway products since they don't last more than a year no matter the price.

disappointed

Connie, Amazon
8 October 2007
  • Summary: Two years old and monitor quit working. First it would not turn off, needed to unplug the power source, then it just turned to black. A complete waste of money. Why should a $500+ monitor quit working after just two years. Will not buy another gateway product. They do not stand behind their products.

Don't Waste Your Money On This Piece of Junk

Lynne B, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: Bought this monitor along with complete Gateway System about 20 months ago and now, like many others, the screen will not come up...Blue light on all the time and of course Gateway Support says " Oh too bad for you, we have your money, Ha Ha." I will never buy another Gateway product and you may want to think it over before you commit. I'm thinking about smashing it on Youtube...to send Gateway folks a message.

GATEWAY Monitor - expensive junk

Candace Lee, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: UPDATE: I finally reported Gateway to the BBB in January and in less than a week I had a new monitor. :Total piece of junk!!! Dies as soon as it is out of warranty. Worked for one year with various problems at the end where when you turn it off it won't go off OR it won't come back on - you have to unplug it & plug it back in to get it to do either and then one night it just died.

GATEWAY FPD HD BLUES-DEFECTIVE PRODUCT

A. Sims, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: JUNK DO NOT BUY!!!!!The monitor has an internal power supply that becomes defective before 2ys. The screen is blank, does not show a picture and will not shut off using the power button. I believe this product is a fire issue and hopefully if enough people complain will be recalled. It will over heat unless you unplug it. RESEARCH AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THIS PRODUCT IS AND WILL BECOME DEFECTIVE BETWEEN 12 MONTHS-24 MONTHS.THIS MONITOR IS A WASTE OF MONEY.

DO NOT BUY THIS MONITOR!

Gerlinde Quiros, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: Do not waste your hard earned money on this monitor! I purchased this monitor along with the Gateway computer a little over a year ago and now it does not work. It just went dark without any warnings. After I purchased the computer system, I noticed there was a "hot spot" by the power button, but Gateway assured me that was normal. Now, there is no picture, nothing and Gateway's response is "Sorry, it's out of warranty, you will have to purchase another one".

Do Not Buy

Wilfred Johnston, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: As with many of the reviews below my monitor went blank one month after the warranty expired. The screen just went black without any warning. The power button blue light is on but does not work. I have to unplug it to turn it off. Take my word for it DO NOT BUY this monitor. There is an obvious problem that Gateway will not fix if it is out of warranty.
