[citation][nom]eklipz330[/nom]wow that price is terrible! i'd rather get a multiple monitor setup, or maybe spend a little more for an s-ips[/citation]

Well, somebody has to pay for the "bleeding edge" crap so we can buy it mainstream in 3 years and laugh at them. When the first LCDs came out they cost $10,000+ now you can get a reasonable one for $200-300. Hence, I'm just gonna watch, and if it pans out I'll partake. I'll remind everyone of the 3D movies available in drive-ins in the 50's though.

Let me guess, another TN panel... although for that price you'd definitely expect an IPS or SPVA. I guess Nvidia 3D Vision integration is the only plus this monitor has. But even considering this added feature, it's still way too much for a TN panel.

i agree, everytime i use a CRT here in the office, i get blown away with its colors compared to my TN panel at home.

2 lamps instead of 4? Here's hoping that they're extremely bright lamps, because when it comes to 3D displays, you need every bit of brightness you can muster. There are entire games I won't play in 3D because halving the brightness of the scene makes bright scenes look gray and nasty.

I don't understand why it's only about 3D. It has 120Hz refresh rate, which makes games play a lot smoother. Less lag when things move horizontally...

You can get a monitor with a 120Hz refresh rate for much less then $619 I have been seeing them go for around $350 for the same size screen.

The cheaper models come without glasses. Like Asus, who has 2 models. One with glasses VG236H ~$500 CAD. And VG236HE without glasses ~$350 CAD, which I got. Still it's kind of expensive. Will check reviews.

Are those craps still selling?!? I look forward to the day when you can buy a display that use 3D native without glasses. Like Nintendo 3DS...

I like the idea of using NVidia's technology,but I wish it was with another brand name manufacturer like Asus instead...I think Asus overall does a better job of making these screens then Acer does...

Since it hasn't been stated in any of the press releases that it's using an IPS panel I think it's pretty obvious that it's a TN panel. No TN panel is worth that price. 3D or not. If you're desperate for 3D you'd be better off saving up an extra £250 so as to buy a Samsung LE40C750 40" 1080p 3D Ready LCD TV.

The problem is that 3d tvs using hdmi 1.4 can only output 24fps at 1080p which makes it terrible for gaming (this is the reason why ps3 3d games only work in 720p mode). With this monitor we can use dual-dvi to solve this problem.

Ya, Avatar is the only really good 3D movie so far, and while a great movie expierence, it is somehow less than breathtaking at home... and even less in 3D at home. I have seen a great 3D demo at fry's, and I must say that it looks really really really awesome, but I am not stepping down from my 28" monitor, and as Valadislaus said, the 3D TVs do not have the throughput to do 3D proper for games/computers yet, so there is no good solution at the moment.
