HP ZR30w died (sad face)
Well, it looks like my "too good to be true" deal actually was.
It worked fine for the past 3 months, but the other day it started flickering and blanking out during use. It seemed to be totally random as nothing I could do would cause it to blank or restore. The power led remained lit and the backlight was still on so I'm guessing that it is a fault in the video circuits.
Yesterday when I turned on the PC for my nightly gaming session the monitor wouldn't show a picture at all. Power led was on but no backlight.
I'm back to the Asus ProArt and Hannspree dual monitor setup for now...I'm going to see if HP will do a warranty repair (3 year warranty, monitor is just over 1 year old) but since I don't have the original receipt and box I'm not holding out too much hope.
If I can't get a warranty repair then I may get a pair of 24 inch Dell UltraSharp monitors to go with the Asus and try Nvidia Surround. I've watched a few YouTube videos and read some forums, Surround looks interesting.
So, I'm officially bummed (yeah, I know that has a different meaning in the UK, not an altogether inappropriate feeling for this situation).
