Gateway XHD3000
 
I just got this monitor and am loving it. No dead pixels, pretty good color quality, looks awesome, fast response time, love the resolution, and amazing connectivity.

There are some cons though. It isn't as bright as my old monitor. The optional speaker bar has a humming sound and so do headphones plugged into the speaker bar. Other than that there are not too many cons. Haven't used it too much yet but am loving it so far.

Well I guess I ran into another con. I get the "blackouts" that other people get but I don't know what sets it off. I mean I did 8 hours of gaming and it never happened. That goodness it only lasts for less then a second. Basically what happens is the screen goes black for a split second then back to normal. First time happened after changing some settings and second time after watching a video. But so far it hasn't done it while playing games. It doesn't bug me too much as long as it doesn't happen while playing a game.

Welcome to the 30" club :)

2560x1600 cannot be beat...well, not without spending a small fortune.

How do you find the input lag when using the inputs that utilize the scaler?

It's the wonder of a HDCP handshake. No getting rid of it, unfortunately.
