Mike in FL, Amazon

  • Summary: Don't buy this monitor. Like everyone else this $2000 monitor died after just over a year. Green bands and ghosting. LUCKILY I found a local electronics shop that could repair it.

Nice looking monitor, but has some flaws

Anonymous, Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm going to start looking into some other companies for my next monitor.
  • Pros: 30" display, huge resolution soundbar (nice for when you take your computer somewhere) all kinds of inputs
  • Cons: I've been having problems with this monitor since the first few months I bought it, the external power brick would randomly not initialize the monitor and make a zapping noise if it was unpowered for like an hour. W few months ago a green bar appeared on the right side of the monitor, 2 shades ov...

  • Summary: ***UPDATE WITH FIX*** I found this site: [...] - it tells you exactly how to fix it and it just worked for me. There are two issues 1) colored or white banding and 2) green tint and flicker.

piece of junk

Bob "Bob", Amazon

  • Summary: Display was great when I first bought it with a sharp picture but like other reviews, it crapped out in about a year and a half with a half dark screen, lines and other strange artifacts. Do not buy this monitor.

Worst Customer Service I have experienced

DataV, Amazon
3 September 2009
  • Summary: Like many of the other reviewers my monitor died after 18 months. Gateway support is awful. I would expect much better from a $2000 product. I can't get anyone on the phone - I have to go through the live chat. Here is a transcript of my useless live chat: Jithu_GWSI376 joined the incident.

Discontinued product - AVOID

Justin, Amazon
19 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought my Gateway 30" Monitor through Amazon on March 17th. Just over a month later, the logic board in the monitor died, and was unable to display a picture. After fighting with the CSR for a Service Tag number so I could send it in, I was told only today (Almost another month after sending it...

  • Pros: nice design and quality
  • Cons: my Diamond OC 4870X2 cards in crossfire setup do not show resolution 2560 x 1600 desktop available. Only 2048 x 1536. I use dual link DVI-D cable. Any thoughts on this?

User Review

Justin M., Newegg
3 February 2009
  • Summary: When others say it's warm, they aren't kidding at all. I felt heat immediately around it after only 5 minutes of operation. Haven't experienced the black out that others have (only has blacked out on me when going from one video source to another, but that is normal), at least yet.
  • Pros: GINORMOUS monitor with lots of connections! For the most part, setup was a breeze (see cons for the exceptions). PC hooked up via DVI looks great @ 2560x1600 (even with an aTi HD 2400 XT card), as well as the PS3 and Xbox 360 via HDMI @ 1080p.
  • Cons: Touch controls for menu are more than a pain to use since more often than not they don't acknowledge anything, and this is where i knock an egg off since you can't use the remote to do the inital set up (but once things are running, you can use the remote to navigate the menu...go figure). EzTune...

Gateway xh3000

Anonymous, Newegg
31 January 2009
  • Summary: Be warned on this monitor. It is good but at the same time has issues and should last longer than it does. Be warned.
  • Pros: This is a very good monitor with its known issues I would purshase something else. Like samsung
  • Cons: The screen goes black often and I had the same issue as the other person regarding the screen haveing lines down the middle and had to have it fixed barely under warranty repair. And they do not have a extended warranty too purshase which is very poor customer support. Beware in purshaseing this ...
