    SometiMes when it goes. To sleep or turn off it won't come back on easily, takes several tries. Image is still 100% as well as physical condition

    ACD's have less backlighting issues so they can be calibrated better

    I have two and like them a lot for editing. Have been very good.

    Just set up the computer so that it does not ever go to sleep completely.

    Yeah that's what I plan to do. Have you had similar problems? Have you calibrated?

    no problems with mine. I have my main one calibrated no problem. My older one is my secondary display and not calibrated. That one gets a little "burn in" when there is anything on the screen for more than a few minutes, but then it goes away when the image is moved. Its very slight and something some of the older original aluminum ones had, my main one is newer and doesnt have the issue. The secondary one was right when they came out, the other one is a year newer.

    I bought it! When I was there checking it out the problem never occurred, though we tried to replicate it. I get it home and it doesn't work, so I start messing with it, unplugging power supply, etc. Still no workie. Then I jiggled the cable that goes right into the monitor and it works fine.



    Ended up paying $180 for a awesome monitor :bowdown:

    1920x1200 FTW

    is it the white one (ADC) or Aluminum? If it's aluminum then you got a pretty good buy on it.

    Great deal! I have a 23" and a 20" and got lucky on both of them (as far as price go). I have some cheap Samsung monitors that I use on some other computers and the contrast is so janky on them.

    Will be even better once I calibrate.
