LG D234P-PN23 inch Passive 3-D must be passed.
on September 2, 2011
First of all I want you to know that I bought this 3-D monitor only for use with my BluRay 3-D player so I could watch 3-D movies and Side By Side 3-D made on my Panasonic 3-D camcorder.
It works but........
I had to watch the 3-D at an exact sitting position or there would be terrible ghosting and I mean an exact viewing position. If I moved 5 degrees The double images will be present. In fact, even when I struggled to find the perfect viewing position ghosting would still be present but not in all scenes.
The monitor only has a couple of controls for 3-D adjustments including 3 or 4 different 3-D formats including Side By Side, but there's no adjustments for eliminating ghosting at any focal point.
The Panasonic 3-D BluRay player does have adjustments but everytime I would make a change the monitor would not give me 3-D without Ghosting somewhere either close up shots or distant shots and sometimes in the entire scene.
I was hoping this monitor would give me the same excellent Passive 3-D as my Vizio 32 inch class theater 3-D LCD as sold here on Amazon for $468.00 which works great with Reel "D" glasses but this monitor is really inferior to the Vizio.
I realize this monitor has no speakers but I wanted a smaller size monitor with 3-D passive capability with use of Reel "D" glasses so I could easily take it with me on vacations, etc. but I ended up with super bad eye strain when trying to compensate for the lack of 3-D quality viewing.
Utilzing the 3-D glasses that came with this monitor looked the same as the Reel "D" glasses.
The monitor looks great in 2-D and regular DVD movies I watched automatically appeared in widescreen even though two of them were made in the 1940's. There's no adjustment on the monitor for 16 x 9 or 4 x 3 viewing just widescreen only which is okay. No Remote.
I hope Vizio makes a smaller 3-D Passive TV-Monitor soon as 32 inch is just a bit too big for carrying around in the car.
As I stated at the beginning of this review I cannot give my opinion how the monitor looks when in use with a computer but since the LG Web Sight states that this monitor is designed to play BluRay 3-D movies with the HDMI I thought I'd take a chance.
I also read that this type of 120HZ is not a true 120HZ as required for clear view 3-D and this might be a cause of the problem but seriously, I am not a technition.
I am not one of those people who always complain about getting headaches when watching 3-D. I never have a problem watching 3-D even for hours at a time (Not Recommended) but this monitor gave me a big headache in just a few minutes.
