XHD3000 is a $2000 paperweight

Mike in FL, Amazon
1 November 2014
  • 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.

vertical banding *UPDATED WITH FIX TO ISSUES*

Carménère, Amazon
3 April 2012
  • 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.

  • 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.

gateway model 2185

Alan H., Newegg
21 January 2009
  • Summary: Get a life Gateway, you shouldn't be selling monitors made by Samsung and others. They will only sell you lemons to discredit your name. I have one of those lemons.
  • Pros: Don't buy a gateway
  • Cons: Read the internet on the problems with the gateway 2185 monitor, gateway won't recall them. Plus they want you to enter a pay site for advise if you call them.

Was happy until I noticed some problems

Andrew W., Newegg
6 January 2009
  • Summary: I'm REALLY upset about the scratches. I'll try to find a workaround for the color calibration issues... but these scratches are not something I'd expect from a brand new $1000 monitor. If there were no scratches, yet the calibration problem remained, I'd be giving it 4 eggs.
  • Pros: 30", 2560x1600 native resolution. Absolutely amazing image quality. I've never seen games look THIS good. 4x AA at 2560x1600... lets just say its got me drooling still. Obviously takes a good bit of power on the graphics side of things, but running on a Radeon 4870 X2, my rig has got plenty of po...
  • Cons: I'm having issues with the screen maintaining color calibration. It seems every time I load/exit a game, and every time I power down and turn back on the monitor, it attempts to "auto calibrate" rather than using the calibration I've established via EzTune. This usually leaves the desktop looking...

Gateway is the worst

Britton T., Newegg
19 December 2008
  • Summary: Gateway provided no help.
  • Pros: Upscales to 1600p
  • Cons: Gateway support is the worst thing in the world. My power supply died for the monitor and since the monitor is out of warranty they will not sell me one. They told me to try other vendors. NO ONE sells the power supply for this monitor. I been without a monitor for 1 week now. Gateway gave me the...

Piece of junk

Sardan, Amazon
7 October 2007
  • Summary: Never have I experienced a less reliable LCD monitor. I'm so disappointed. The reviews of this monitor were so glowing when it first came out, and I was excited to be able to get a monitor with all its features.
