Summary: Like almost everyone else, failed after a year. Customer service is the worst I have ever seen. They basically said "try to find someone to fix it" I would never buy Gateway (or Acer, that owns Acer) again.
works with Mac but other than that, not worth the trouble

Summary: This is the only 30" display (in May 2009) I could find that wd work with a 2008 iMac. (The Apple 30s cannot utilize the whole screen.) Quality is all right with mini DVI to DVI adapter. I read using the iMac and put reference material on the Gateway.
Summary: I have had this monitor for almost 1 year. Within the first 2 months, I had to return it because one day I turned it on and it was flickering away. I tried unplugging for a few hours and tried it again but it kept flickering even worse.
Summary: Ive had this screen for about 5 months now, Ive used all aspects of this screen and can give a fair honest review. The truth is the image that is displayed on the screen in full 2560x1600 is awesome , its great , the screen has a deep color pallet.
Summary: This monitor has driver issues (as of 4/10/09) as well as a regular flicker in vista. Do not buy this monitor. Although its big, the lack of support and bugs make this a disposable $900 monitor. If this is the best gateway can do, then I wouldn't consider buying anything from them..
Summary: I bought this beautiful display about a year ago. It was a wonder to work on and really gave me the real estate I needed for high resolution images, documents and it was a greal PIP display so I could watch CNN while working. Unfortunately it died.
Summary: Pros: Great Monitor when working, Multiple Inputs, PiP, Works Great with Vista x64 and even Windows 7 x64 Cons: After less than a year of use Green tint over entire screen, flickering images, complete screen failure, horrible customer support. Have to agree with the other reviews.
Summary: As the other reviewer wrote, VISTA keeps looking for a driver on this monitor but apparently there isnt one available. Next known problem is the constant blackouts I was having along with other sceen issues, side button problems and poor build quality.
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...
Summary: I've had the XHD3000 since the beginning of 2008 and love the brightness, screen size, and wide variety of inputs. But in the month before its warranty expired, mine was been losing vertical lines from time to time before it warmed up and later it started flickering uncontrollably (regardless of...
