I had gotten a Fujifilm FinePix W3 for the holidays and liked seeing the photos on the autostereoscopic LCD, but wanted to see the photos and movies a little larger. I got this instead of a 3D HDTV because I felt I would get more value. I was right. While it does not seem to support Nvidia's 3D Vision (or if it did I can't find the option), it does have it's own 3D drivers and software. This software package is pretty good, even making non 3D photos and videos have some depth. It isn't always the right depth, mind you, but still an interesting effect.
The software even allows me to play 3D type games that have a draw distance in true 3D. I have played Torchlight and Torchlight II this way and while some of the characters seem to float, and TL2 has a very irritating problem with no longer responding when doing an Alt-Tab or otherwise leaving the game GUI, the effect is really beautiful. Just be prepared to sit three or four feet away for the effect. Most people's computers systems aren't set up with this kind of distance in mind, so your mileage will vary. I would like to try some racing games or 1st person games next (Oblivion or Portal 2 maybe).
Pretty impressive for a monitor under $250! I'm really excited to do some 3-D video and photo work right in my own home. Just picked up a Fuji W3; plan to borrow a friend's Go Pro Hero 3-D camera setup regularly.
Only real drawback so far here is the base. The monitor is a little heavy for it, and wobbles noticeably on my wheeled desk and creaky floor. I suppose a little give could be a good thing; better to bend than to snap, right? But the amount of movement I see on mine bugs me, especially since I live in a place that has earthquakes. Also the footprint (about 9.5" max width, 7.5" max depth, in kind of a shield or diamond shape) is bigger than I'd like on my 3-monitor desk.
I'd recommend picking up a cheap VESA mount type base to anyone considering this monitor if wobbliness or a big footprint would bother you. I'm going to try out Monoprice B003L11FUY, $30ish, which I just found here on Amazon, and there seem to be not-much-pricier models that clamp or screw on to a desktop to save even more room.
My last problem with the Viewsonic-supplied base is that once attached, the "neck" part of the base that connects directly to the monitor itself is proving pretty difficult to remove. I got the "foot" part to come right off, but the piece between that and the actual monitor is defeating me. I think it's pretty likely I'll have to crack that piece in order to remove it. And I am definitely removing it because it will look dumb with the new base. I hope I don't damage the monitor itself in the process. I'll be back on here cursing up a storm if that happens...
Deducted one half star (except...I can only deduct a whole star? OK, Amazon) for the base, and for no HDMI cable being included -- but I can and do appreciate that these are factors that keep the purchase price low. I haven't tested the Viewsonic-supplied cables; they probably work fine. They're just not compatible with my existing setup.
If you already have other monitor bases and cables at your disposal, this could be a nice, cheap entry-level 3-D monitor for you!
