Aye. I'm pretty well convinced that a huge portion, if not all, 37w1 have that problem with uniformity and brightness. Therefore an exchange for the same was not a good option IMO.

So I decided to get the 42" because early indicators are that it should have less issues.

And lets face it. We could all use another five inches. bahahahahahahahaha

Woohoo!!! Nice! I was really interested in the 42" Westy... now that you're the offical guinea pig I look forward to your thoughts on it. Post your opinion once you set it up.

Well guys I got the 42w2.

But I already called Westinghouse because naturally there is a problem.

The first problem I noticed is that there seemed like a line going from top to bottom halfway across the screen. It was hard to pick out but when I blank the screen and look slightly from the right or if I use a light blue background it sticks out more. After looking closely at it for a while I've determined that it almost looks like two separate plates make up the monitor, are meeting at the middle, and the one on the right is sligthly darker. Where they meet you see this line.

The other problem is that when on DVI2 the screen just turns on/off every couple seconds when I power it up. It keeps doing this until I turn it off. Put it back on DVI1 and it's fine.

Westinghouse is having me leave it unplugged for 30 minutes and then plug it back in but already said I should call BB if that doesn't fix it.

I'll try another one but I sure hope the next one doesn't have these problems or I'm going to start pushing for a full refund. Playing swap the monitor gets old after about 2 exchanges for me.

In a parallel universe, there exists a Riptide who never has an unfortunate problem with any of his hardware.

I just know it.
