Gateway XHD3000 Review

12 December 2007
  • Conclusion: The Gateway Extreme HD 30″ LCD monitor (XHD3000) is more than just a beautiful monitor – it’s a full-fledged HD video display that will upscale even the most gorgeous 1080p HD movies to 1600p; the colors, brightness and clarity are all very impressive. Stills and video look breathtakingly accurate.
  • Pros: Eye-popping 2560x1600 screen res; supports multiple HD resolutions; gorgeous design
  • Cons: Screen height cannot be adjusted; menu navigation can be finicky

Gateway XHD3000 30-inch LCD Display Review

7 October 2007
  • Summary: I am both impressed and a tad disappointed in the XHD3000 display from Gateway. It definitely hits more than it misses, but the lack of a backlight control means that you'll never truly have those deeper blacks that are difficult – but possible – with LCD technology.
  • Pros: Cool capacitance touch controls, Highest resolution PC monitor available, HQV Realta processing, Component supports 1080p
  • Cons: Poor black levels (no backlight adjustment), Auto-input mode gets fooled by hibernation, PIP only works with dual-link DVI-D, Mediocre remote, Most picture controls disabled for DVI-D

Review: Gateway XHD3000

4 October 2007
  • Excerpt: When we heard awhile back that Gateway was cooking up an “extreme HD” display, we had a skeptical chuckle — what is this, a Mountain Dew commercial? Then we saw a prototype of the monitor in January during a madcap CES excursion.
  • Pros: The ultimate choice for high-end performance. Variety of input options: HDMI, component and composite video, S-video, DVI and VGA. Self-powered, six-port USB hub built in. Advanced PIP lets you control window size, location on screen and transparency.
  • Cons: Outlandish price tag. 6-millisecond response time is slow for such an advanced display. Color washes out in direct sunlight. Single HDMI and component inputs stunt the monitor’s potential.
