What are some good/new 3D monitors?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm in the market for a 3D monitor, but wanted to get some opinions on what are some good ones. I'm also only looking for the newer generation ones (anything released in 2011/soon to be released). Here are some of the ones I've found so far...

-Acer GN245HQ (out everywhere except for in the US)

-Acer HN274H (only being sold on newegg but currently deactivated, possibly due to a recall with a ghosting bug on the monitor)

-ASUS VG278H (not out yet, but supposed to be released soon?)

-PLANAR SA2311W (seems to be the best 3D monitor out right now, with the lowest ghosting rate out of all the current 3D monitors)

Out of all of those, I'm thinking about possibly getting the HN274H, but like I mentioned, I've heard that monitor was recalled due to a severe ghosting bug. The GN245HQ would be the next one on my list, but there are like no reviews of it yet and it is only being sold everywhere except the US right now. Next is the VG278H, but from what I understand, this monitor was supposed to be released like a year ago, although I've heard some say that it could be coming out in the next couple months, so I'm not sure what to think on this (also not a fan of glossy screens). Last but not least is the SA2311W, which is supposed to be pretty good from what I've read, but I'm still somewhat apprehensive about it.

Any thoughts/opinions about these monitors? Anyone have any recommendations for any other good/new 3D monitors?

$400-$700 is what I'm looking to spend. Although, if I end up spending more than $600, I'm hoping to have that nvidia 3d kit thrown in (like how the HN274H has the glasses included with the emitter built into the monitor).

The 2010 number or the ghosting thing? It came out in early 2010 from what I've seen, and in terms of ghosting, here's a few images from a review of that 3D ASUS monitor...

Here's a review of that Planar monitor, which has the same ghosting level as the other monitors I listed in the OP...

There's a lot less ghosting going on in the Planar one than in the ASUS one. The Planar one is a newer generation 3D monitor though, like the other few I listed, and the ghosting levels of those monitors are about the same as this one.

Yeah, it's a nice one, but it's from the same generation of 3D monitors as the ASUS one you mentioned. Acer just got done releasing a newer/improved version of this monitor, the , which has a faster response time and less ghosting. Like I mentioned though, it's released almost everywhere except the US right now.

Acer GN245HQ vs Acer GD245HQ vs Alienware OptX AW2310 vs Asus VG236H





Ideally, you should only be able to see the character and the two lines of test, with no ghosting trailing behind. The brighter and clearer any ghosting images are, the less sharp moving objects will appear.
