A whole new world!!!
on March 19, 2012
I'm sorry I can't say that much about this monitor besides I'm happy with it because I haven't compared it with other 3d monitors out there, but I wanted to talk more about 3D gaming. I've had this monitor (Viewsonic V3D231) for two weeks now and all I have to say is that 3D gaming is one of the coolest things I have ever witnessed in my life. After installing the Tridef 3d software (include with the monitor) I started playing the games I have. I started up my tridef with crysis and WOW, but little did I know that there are shadow problems with that game in 3d mode. From there I went on to Battlefield bad company 2 and this was the game that blew me away, I must have played the single player campaign half a dozen times but It felt like an entirely different experience in 3D, It actually made me feel that I was there along with Sweetwater, There is nothing like watching a rpg coming right at you. The next game I played was Mass Effect 2, Ok I'm going to say this "you haven't experienced mass effect unless you play it in 3D" MIND BLOWING!!!! Enough said.
If you buy this monitor you owe it to yourself to pick up Batman Arkham City, this game in 3D again is out of this world, you feel like you are batman. The fight scenes especially are unbelievable.
I did connect my PS3 to this monitor (hdmi) and the quality of the display is great, but you can tell that 3d gaming on the ps3 vs. the pc is totally downgraded, I have crysis 2 on the ps3 and the pc and started both and I picked the same scene in the game, I hit the input button and the quality didn't even come close to the PC in 3d, but 2d for the ps3 is outstanding, no fault of the monitor I'm sure.
Don't believe that 3D is a gimmick; I can guarantee that this is the best way to experience games hands down. If you like to feel like you are part of the game / action then I recommend this monitor. Not a bad price either, just make sure you have a good video card because you will take a hit in performance.
