post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
im considering buying the 3d glasses kit and just wanted to get some insight if its actually worth it. if anyone here has it, can you tell me if it looks good?

thanks!

Im thinking about that also im not sure if i should go with 3D or a 30" 2560x1600. I guess it will end up being a preference of would you rather game on higher ress or with 3D, or thats mine at least.

The issue im having is i have not played on a ress that high yet and i have not played a game in 3D also. I would like some opinions on the subject also smile.gif

Is the 3D experience that amazing it is worth the lower ress? or maybe even buy a 30" and a 3D monitor? what are your thoughts ppl smile.gif

Some games are not worth playing in 3D (Because ya rather play them at 120FPS!). Games like The Witcher 2 (Love this game in 3D), Avatar, WoW and many other games that are rated as "excellent" for Nvidia 3D are amazing though. But don't let 3D alone sway you from a lower resolution, playing in 120Hz/120FPS in games like League of Legends, Starcraft 2, and many FPS make buying the lower resolution monitor worth it.

Oh and watching 3D movies is awesome too. Makes movies such as Sanctum turn amazing, not to mention Avatar the movie.

Edit: Want to add a brief description:
Everything just looks more in depth. If you move your head around the monitor in 3D it seems like you can see objects moving around that you couldn't see in 2D.

Yeah, 3d vision brings a whole new level of IQ. One really good example is GTA4. That game looks amazing in 3d. You tend to notice little things that you probably didn't notice beforehand like cinder block and other trash on the ground sticking up out of the ground or the curbs sticking up like a step instead of just looking flat. Cars coming right at you looks cool. I love cranking the depth in that game and looking down the street at all of the little effects. Its amazing.

Even older console ports look like Overlord look impressive. One thing that I thought was really cool in that game was the pollen from I guess dandelions being knocked into the air and floating out of my screen at me. I noticed a similar effect in Sacred 2 with leaves being blown around. These are little things that I might not have noticed without 3d.

One game that I played recently was Gothic 4 which normally isn't a very impressive looking game. Holy crap, does 3d add a lot to that game. It looked amazing.

Its hard to describe just what playing in 3d is like but when it works well it is amazing. Don't get me wrong it isn't always perfect. Not every game works properly and when they do in certain games you might need to turn something off like HDR not really working properly in Source games. Then there is crosstalk which thankfully hasn't really been an issue on my current display. One other issue is the performance hit. Its big but I'll take 3d over AA any day.

When it works properly there is nothing like it. Just whatever you do don't cheap out on the display. There was a massive difference between the Acer GD235hz that I tried at first an my current Planar SA2311w.

@OP- Your current monitor in your system specs will not work with 3d vision. You need a 3d vision ready display.

the price of them are very similar so what is the difference you see?

Edit: Also are the wireless ones the way to go or would the wired ones be better?

Well, to start with the Acer has input lag. I noticed that almost right away. It also ghosted a bit. One other thing that I saw and is apparently a common problem is an odd like ring around text and other objects on that Acer. Apparently, its an overdrive artifact. The biggest issue was crosstalk in S3D. You could clearly see a ghosted image in a lot of games, a lot of the time. Don't get me wrong I occasionally see that on my Planar but no where near as often and when I do its not that bad at all. There were games or just areas in games that were loaded with ghosted images that I saw on the Acer where I don't the image looks perfect on the Planar.

I thought that the Acer was cool to try 3d and all but I thought that the 2d performance on my old 60hz display was better and there are far better monitors for 3d vision. That Acer is one of the first 1080p 120hz displays, if not the first.

Bloody at 3d vision blog does some great monitor reviews for 3d vision since he does cover crosstalk. Check out a review to kind of give you an idea of what crosstalk/ghosting is.

There is no input lag at all on my monitor. The only time I've seen ghosting on my monitor is when I raise the depth too high when playing in 3D on games that don't support 3D very well. I don't have those rings around the text either. They both have a 2ms response rate. Acer has a 80,000:1 contrast ratio where Planar has a 1,000:1 contrast. They seem pretty identical in any other spec except the .6 extra inches of the Acer.

Looking forward to getting a 3D kit myself. If ordering from newegg make sure you get the one with Duke Nukem Forever. It's the same price as the standard wireless kit, you just get a historical (bad) game for "free".

Myself I'm planning to buy 2 more ASUS 3D monitors and another 580 by late October (Battlefield 3) for some surround/3D surround goodness.

I don't recommend strategy games in 3D. Strategy games require serious thinking and a fast mouse hand. 3D vision distracts me during battles.

I play in 3D for all games except strategy games and games which don't work in Nvidia 3D Vision (such as openGL games and very old games) or games which look bad in 3D.

It is usually more difficult to aim in 3D than in 2D. Keep this in mind if you will be playing first person shooters.

My Acer GD245HQ has ghosting, especially when it's cold. I don't deny it.
But after about 20-30 minutes of playtime, the monitor warms up and most ghosting is gone. I have not noticed any significant amount of input lag.

Personally, the Acer GD245HQ does not impress me much. I probably won't buy another Acer monitor.
