wouldn't all universal remotes work with this?
yeah, they should. Even the wii U works with this as a remote.

Went to Bay & Dundas BB to price protect the one I bought during Black Friday week for $149.99.

Pointed out to both the CSR & Floor Manager of the Day that the new price $129.99 was on BB's website, and did not contravene their policy on price protection:
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/help/what-i ... c1001.aspx

Also, the item is not listed in the current Boxing Week Flyer this week. Received difference of $20 + tax ($22.60) back onto credit card.

You have up until Jan. 6th to price protect if you happened to purchase this after Nov. 2nd, 2012. Good luck.

How's the hdmi it comes with?
i have play hour or 2 with original HDMI without a problem, but i did have problem with a video card i test, it could be video card problem. The issue is the screen when black no signal with orange light, the only thing i can do is hard reset the PC

hit the power button on the monitor and it will turn on again then go into the menu setting and turn ON quick display. then the monitor should wake up upon hitting your keys or moving your mouse

the 1.3 cable, is that the cable that comes in the box? and what were you hooking it up to, or did you mean hooking it up to either ps3 or pc there was no blinking at all?

also is the blinking problem because of your videocard/pc or is it because of the cable or because of the monitor?

actually, the cable that comes in the box has to be 1.4 because it has to work with 3D, 1.3 doesn't support 3D if I'm correct.

I don't know what this blank screen issue is. I've owned this monitor the moment it dropped to $299 last year and it's been solid. I've never seen this black screen/blinking issue. I've used an DVI - HDMI cable from my PC and an HDMI connector to my PS3 with no issues on both inputs. I guess it's just the luck of the draw.
I'm on the road to 5000...

Well, my screen blacks out only when the hdmi cable is touched, even very slightly.
Could this be an hdmi cable issue (using stock)? Or maybe connector issues (either from monitor inputs, or the hdmi connectors themselves)...

For me, if the cables remain unmoved, no blackouts have occurred yet...

Anyone know where I can still find this TV for 100$. I live at Montreal. Bestbuy and future shop are out of stock and since I choose to buy a coat on the 26, I didn't have the chance to go to BB and FS.

Yes 1.4 is 3D ready (orginal cable), i test the same video card with same hdmi but now with different monitor, there is no problem at all. I also test with DVI to HDMI adapter as well, n hiccup

It's not 100$ at Best Buy anymore. If you find one (there were two on the floor at Laurier in Quebec yesterday), it will cost you 130$.
