Make sure DCC is enabled on your monitor.

I use a similar type of software that came with my BenQ. Very handy to switch from low-blue to standard mode.
Thanks! Good to know, I will give that app a shot!

I think that depends on your location. I just bought this about an hour ago in Huntsville for $118 and there was a another on the shelf still. So... not dead?

I bought this a few weeks ago and am pretty happy. Thing that sucks is the included cable is very rigid, has the ferrite beads, and isnt too long. I wanted to use it with my primecables monitor arm, and it just *barely* fits, but i cant actually articulate it as much as id like. I ordered another hdmi cable off ebay(cheap, 3m, flexible, says HDMI 1.4, no ferrite beads) but when i shut the computer down, I expect a *PC's turned off, put yourself to sleep* reaction, but instead get "cable not connected" box bouncing around the screen for 2-3 minutes before the monitor goes to sleep. Its especially odd because when i put the PC to sleep, the monitor is smart enough to also go to sleep.
I mean the problem has to lie with the new cable, but its annoying since id figured any/all HDMI cables would get the same results as far as user interface stuff(Maybe not the same resolution or screen refresh rate, but definitely the same signals of when to sleep).

Either way, the old cable is back on, and its not pulled taught from the from PC tower, and the monitor arm is kinda just there for looks, as raising the monitor would probably rip the cable out.

Ok so for everyone's convenience I did drive around, and where they did have stock the price is indeed now at $138 (I had them scan it).

So unless for some reason there's a problem in a specific walmart's system, the deal is officially dead.

Well the price of that monitor is fantastic for what it is.

That said, from what others have said, it's not all that great of a panel. Honestly, I suggest you open the box and have a look at it, and decide if you are comfortable with it or not.

You can't beat that kind of price, but if you don't like the monitor then it doesn't really matter what you paid for it since you won't enjoy it.
