    Gateway XHD3000 30 LCD Monitor with Quad-HD Technology

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Have you ever noticed how some flat panel monitors lack picture quality? This is usually because the monitors are being viewed at half their resolution capability and need a video card that supports high definition copy protection. The good news is that Gateway has found a way around this problem with their new XHD3000. Read on to see how Gateway has indeed revolutionized the computer monitor.

    We have already seen 30 inch monitors from companies like Dell and Samsung, namely the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP and the Samsung SyncMaster 305T. These 30 inch monitors, released in 2007, all lack a very important aspect of picture quality. Although they boast a nice 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, they are not always able to function at these levels. The reason for this is that these monitors are limited due to monitor-scaling issues.

    What this means is that you are restricted to a Dual Link DVI interface, and if your video card does not support high definition copy protection (HDCP), then you will be forced to view the monitor at 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. What this boils down to is that you are only viewing the monitor at about half of its maximum resolution capabilities, and that means that you probably shouldn't have spent the extra money in buying a monitor with a 2560 x 1600 native resolution.

    With the release of the new Gateway XHD3000 30 inch LCD flat panel monitor, the problems previously listed can be solved with Gateway's new Silicon Optix HQV Teranex Realta video processing chips. I won't get into the technical jargon associated with this technology, but I will say that it is used in very expensive high-end home theater equipment as well as expensive broadcast equipment used by the television industry.

    HQV stands for "Hollywood Quality Video." This technology is unheard of in a computer monitor, until now. The technology used in the Gateway XHD3000 flat panel allows you to view the screen at a high resolution with any of its many inputs.

    The new technology integrated into the XHD3000 comes at a cost. You can currently pick one of these monitors up from the Gateway web site for $1699. This is a tad more than the other 30 inch monitors on the market, but you do get more for the money. The XHD3000 gives the user a ton of inputs, which allows you to connect this monitor to almost any external device including a PS3, Xbox 360, DVD player, Wii, TiVo, and of course a computer, even older models. What is great about this monitor is that you can have most of these devices connected to the monitor at the same time, because of its many inputs.
