I will be using this mainly for 120hz 2d. I have 3D on my 114" projector so no need there.. smile.gif

Also I use SLI 580s, I read that the cheaper version of this wont work due to my cards not having DiplayPort, but I should have no problems getting 120hz on my cards right...Just making sure....

Your frame rate won't change You don't need faster card to do 120hz any integrated GPU to the most high end GPU's do 120hz. So to answer your question 580 SLI has no problem. The Load doesn't change with 120hz even really old machines can do 120hz.
The emitter is built in and comes with glasses you could sell the glasses only. I don't think you will get much. Even MonoPrice sells glasses. So they probably aren't worth that much.
For the cheap version you will need displayport. The new 580's have displayport you could use the money you saved on the cheaper screen to buy a third 580 with display port. But most likely that would be very unpractical. But if you have the 580's without DP then you will have to use the 950 model.

Same here but from what I can puzzle together, our samsungs turn brightness on 100% and set color temperature to cold although the image seems a bit less bright than in 2D. The only explanation I have for this is that they pulse the backlight at 120Hz to reduce ghosting and use cold temperatures to counter the slight brownish tint of the glasses.
The plusing would be somewhat similar to what Nvidias lightboost tech claims to do. They'll crank the brightness up, pulse the backlight (thereby losing brightness) and leave the shutters opened longer than in their 3D vision 1 (thereby losing less brightness). The original 3D vision 1 Kit had the shutters closed longer, I think since the older CCFL backlights couldn't be pulsed that fast. Maybe our samsungs also do this but I can't say for sure.

I'm wondering how the combination of the samsung + the new Nvidia kit turns out in terms of brightness and ghosting when they'll be available. They'll probably run in some sort of mode similar to their old tech without a lightboost display attached but I'm still curious.

The thing samsung obviously has going for them is that the glasses are close to dirt cheap. On amazon our 3100 models go for roundabout 35€/$ on amazon and the nvidia glasses (without ir emitter) go for about 3x the price. My glasses already have some scratches so replacing them doesn't hurt that much. cheers.gif

anyone got optimum settings for 750D?

I'd be interested to hear too what people are using. I read the PCMonitors review that had settings for the 27" model, but they just didn't work for me at all. The review suggested brightness 40, contrast 75 and RGB of 95,91,100 with magic angle in grouped view. Unfortunately when I set magic angle with the 23" model it will set RGB back to 50,50,50. On the other hand if I don't use Magic Angle those 95,91,100 color values will destroy any white balance. I don't own a calibrator so all I can do is adjust it manually.

ATM my settings are ECO light sensor "dimmer", contrast 60 and Magic color full with gamma mode 3. The Magic color "full" does oversaturate a bit in LAGOM color test, but IMO it looks much better when actually looking at pictures. The red in my monitor seems more like lavender if I don't use it.

One thing I noticed too was that when I use 3D and go back to 2D mode, the monitor won't automatically turn down the brightness when in ECO mode until minutes later, so I'm blinded by the 100% brightness and have to manually go to ECO menu to switch the brightness on and off for it to react.

I tried PCMonitors settings as well on my 23' 750D and didn't like it. Too dark and washed out. How ever I did use their base settings and found these settings to be perfect for me. Brightness 80, Contrast 13, RGB 90,93,90, Gamma mode 3 and all the magic stuff turned off. This is just eyeballing it since I have no calibrator as well.

Unfortunately I have to RMA the monitor as it developed problem with pure black colors showing green vertical lines in Displayport and a green grid in HDMI. It randomly comes and goes so it's a hardware failure in the base somewhere from god knows what. Shame really since it's only 3 weeks old.

Does the "Samsung S23A750D" work with "BFG GTX 280 OCX" (which has only DVI-I) ? Thank you.

Are you sure it does not have DVI-D ?

Most likely it should have DVI-D, but in any case there's only DP and HDMI in 750D, so you would need to use an adapter like DVI to HDMI. This would also limit your refresh rate to 60.

I gave up on using the ECO mode since it was a pain to manually refresh it after 3D mode. Now I'm at brightness 15 and magic color full with gamma mode 3. Also I used Win 7 built in calibrator to fix the gamma to 2.2. This is pretty much the best picture I could get out of the monitor, and it looks near enough to my side monitors, both being IPS (Dell U2311H and ViewSonic VP2365wb). Too bad the ViewSonic just won't go low enough so I have to use the router as a base for the SA23750D since it has only a meager tilt function.

I should have known that just realized the question was about 750 model.


Nice setup (pic) ^ ^

Just bought a Samsung SA950. And was curious, whats better to use with this monitor? DVI or the Display Port IN? And will my GTX 590 have the appropriate inputs / outputs?

The screen only came with the DVI cable so I'm currently using that.
