Major issues with detecting external inputs
on 13 January 2016
After using this monitor for 6 months, initially loving it, now I hate it. Image quality and the visual part are excellent. Same is the stand, adjustable and convinient. However! There is a serious issue with waking up and detecting external inputs. The result is that I struggle to connect it as an external monitor. Tried three laptos (two Dells and an Acer) and sometimes works, more often it does not. The problem seems to be with the HDMI inputs. DisplayPort behaves more predictably. Having said that, there are minor issues with the DP. The computer will loose signal when it goes on standby. My solution to this is to keep the monitor & PC on all the time. However, connecting it with a laptop has been a nightmare.
If somebody has an advice or found a way to solve the issue, I'd be more than happy to increase my rating! However, as it is now I purchase this monitor so I can connect my work laptop and I cannot do it.
