"Great 3D monitor for games and movies"5.0 starson by thetaylors09
Pros: Solid 2D monitor with an excellent entry level 3D capability.
Great ability to adjust the monitor's position
Can act as 3D TV for bluray/ps3/etc (haven't tried Direct TV)
Cons: Lack of instruction on 3D middleware (iz3d or tridef) to get 3D games working
Inclusion of a 2D to 3D button on the front (why do they have this feature???)
Incomplete (bad) review by CNET will prevent this monitor from selling well
Summary: I believe the CNET reviewer utilized the "auto-magic" 2D to 3D conversion thats built into the monitor as he did not mention which 3rd party driver he utilized (i.e: iz3D or tridef - recommend by AMD for my HD7870). Just install one of these drivers and the montior's 3D looks great. I tried it with Diablo 3, and the only complaint is that the 2D overlays don't get converted by tridef. This makes them look slightly jagged, but the 3D parts looks awesome. Same with Skyrim.
Playing 3D movies with PowerDVD 12 was a blast on this monitor as well. Picture quality looked great with lion king and tangled (don't judge the kiddo loves those movies)
I received this monitor as a gift on Fathers Day. As a techy guy, this review would have led me to not purchase this monitor. I'm glad my wife surprised me. If I was ASUS, I would be on the phone with CNET asking for a redaction. CNET's is the only review that has made its way onto the internet and it puts the words "3D fail" in every search result - which is a shame
Thanks for your submission!
