>> Hi, this is Eric Franklin. This is the last minute report cnet.com. Today we're looking at the Gateway XHD3000 Extreme HD 30-Inch Display. Display has one of the most extensive connection options we have seen in the display of any size. This includes the usual suspects of DVI and VGA plus basic S-video and composite video connections. All the video ports include corresponding audio ports as well. And there's even an optical audio-out option. The only thing missing here that we could think of is the display port and an extra DVI port of which the Dell 2408 WP has. The display performed extremely well in our display make-based...okay I don't...I don't really know what this is. What is this? I mean this supposed to be an extreme...this is supposed to be in extreme video, right? This is not extreme. I don't really know why I'm reading here. This is not extreme. That's it. I'm not gonna do this video my way, it's gonna be extreme. [ Background Music ]
>> Yo! What's up this is Ego coming to you live at CENTTV studio and today we're talking about the Gateway XHD3000 Extreme. You may not be seeing your ego. This is so extreme well to display. What's so extreme about it? There is nothing extreme about it. Sucker! Stable overlay has been so extreme. Ow! We're in this cage. We're hanging out in the cnetlive cage. We got the Gateway right here. Check out this extreme rotation. We've got extreme 30-degree rotation left and right. Look at that rotation. You know what, all of this talk of the extreme has made me thirsty. I've got an extreme thirst. Ohh! Well!!! We're back. We're still extreme. We're still with the Gateway Extreme. Check out this. Oh men it's extreme. Look at this extreme footprint. Look at that footprint. That is extreme. We've got an extreme military press. This will come off your desk. Let me tell you.
>> Five, four, okay you're out.
>> Actually display performed extremely well in our display make-base, lab-base test. Time the Samsung SyncMaster 305T as the highest rated display we view at that test with the score of 92. The display was able to show highly detail clear and colorful Blue ray and DVD images and also this is easily one of the best displays we've got seen when it comes to picture quality. On the downside, the speaker produces decent sound at about mid to 90 percent volume but anything about that, we notice a slight distortion in the form of the hissing sound. The OSD includes brightness controls, some audio controls and the ability to choose which video input you wanna use. There are no contrast or color controls however with OSD. Also, another thing we like was that the OSD stays on screen with more than enough time to make sure you're satisfied with any brightness or audio change it made. The display impresses with this incredible view and angle smooth and sharp DVD and Blue ray playback and as the color pallet. It is a choice between the comparable SyncMaster 305T andit depends on what you want. If you have no need for HDMI component or optical audio connections the Samsung SyncMaster 305T will not disappoint. If these features are important to you however, then pay an extra 300 bucks for the Gateway maybe worth it. We wish the price was a little bit lower but you're really do get a good deal for what you're paying for. Once again this is Eric Franklin and this has been the first look at the Gateway XHD3000 Extreme HD.
>> Is there anyone have the key?
Adequate for general productivity use, the Gateway FPD1960 comes up short next to 19-inch LCDs that offer more features and better image quality.
The Epson WorkForce 840 costs a bit more than the average all-in-one inkjet, but its strong performance and long list of features more than justify its price and CNET's Editors' Choice Award.
The 11-inch, AMD-powered Gateway LT3103u does well on price and performance, but drops the ball on battery life when compared with the competition.
Gateway's budget E-1500D is a good fit for small businesses that need professional system management features at a low price, although necessary options can double the cost.
Gateway's full-featured budget laptop is well-priced for its specs, and it has a surprisingly long battery life.
The Gateway HD1900 has great performance and a low price, but lacks features.
Although this 24-inch LCD delivers with an abundance of features and a sleek design, the Gateway FHD2400 stumbled in the labs.
The extremely inexpensive 32-inch Vizio VP322 introduces a new size category for plasma, but its overall performance is no better, and often worse, than that of similar-size LCDs.
The latest in Gateway's line of versatile slim towers, the SX2850-33 stays current with a fast Intel Core i3 CPU, and more importantly adds Wi-Fi to improve its suitability as a living-room desktop. It might cost more than a Nettop or a dedicated video-streaming device, but for its overall speed and flexibility, we'd pick this system as a budget PC or an online living-room content center.
It may cost a bit more than other 17-inch LCDs, but it's a stylish, highly adjustable display that would fit right into any well-appointed home or office.
