Just to share my experience with this display. I bought it for 300 approximately 6 month after they released. I loved it and use it daily for my main pc monitor. The blackout does occur, but rarely and i am beginning to notice a bit of an issue with the sound (I have it connected via hdmi to the pc). I would recommend this screen at that price, and with 2 hdmi ports, it allows for you to connect a console as well if you are looking to have it be multi-use.
Note: The screen does not turn on automatically when you turn on your pc. Just something to be aware of
* I bought it for the 3d functionality, but i have barely used it for that.
