After buying one of these XL2420T, and shuffling through the manual, this info caught my eye in particular: "3D content can be transferred to XL2420TX through HDMI cable (version 1.3 or above) as well". Seems like this is not possible with the XL2420T, and after some further searching I found this Nvidia website that pretty much confirms it: http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-system-requirements.html
Seems like there is no HDMI 1.4 support for 3D content on the XL2420T as opposed to the TX model (not available in Europe, since BenQ decided to release it only in the US and select other areas outside EU). If I have understood this correctly, you couldn't play 3D content via the HDMI interface say from a PS3 for example. While with the XL2420TX model (again, not available in Europe) you could, because it supports the 3D content with HDMI 1.4?
I have tested this only briefly myself, since I do not own the 3d Vision glasses yet, but had to lend them from a friend for awhile. Is there someone who could confirm this? It's hard to believe but if this is in fact true, it would be a major drawback and a big disappointment, since the XL2420T/TX are advertised to support HDMI 1.4 with 3D, and for me is essential for future upgradeability.
Could someone please test this? Would be much appreciated!Edited by Baalaaxa - 1/10/12 at 2:11pm
