Big monitor, BIG PROBLEMS

Summary: Zero star rating. I could not post this without 1 star rating. When it is working, it is one of the finest monitors I've ever had. It blinks, cuts out, goes blank for unpredictable times. WORTHLESS and can't send it back for what it's worth. Impossible to do any project or web surfing. This happens with all computers and different cables....so it is in the monitor itself. If someone wants a large monitor, mine is free for the pick up....but don't waste your time and gas.
Summary: I recently purchased this based on some good reviews, but now that I have one I regret the purchase. Bigger is not better here. The monitor uses a TN panel which means it does not maintain solid color top to bottom, left to right. When viewing normally the top is slightly darker than the bottom. So looking at a gray strip in photoshop, the gray will be noticeably darker at the top than at the bottom, creating a gradient effect.
