I am sorry about the crappy pics (taken with Samsung Galaxy S -8MP) but I am sort of in a rush. And I will let the pics speak for themselves...

I have to admit, I am pretty stoked.

Let's check out the adjustment for tilt. .

Why or how you would need anything BEYOND that is BEYOND me LOL.

Would I prefer a swivel? Yes. Does it matter to me? No. Not one iota.

Is the fit and finish clean as hell? Yes. Samsung FTW at this point.

But let's play with it for a while and see what we think of it hahaha.

My only complaint so far, ( I do not even care how much this thing costs its just looks so awesome ) is that the glasses are about as stylish as these outfits...

Everything else looks really, really good. And I haven't even plugged it in yet LOL.

I have some stuff to do but bet your butt I will be online tonight slaying kids on our server...

So make sure you add me if you are a HARDCORE guy like myself. Anything besides HC is just.. Girly LOL.

c4sauceBOSS is my name, dishing out maaaddd destruction is game wink.gif

Here are a few more pics . .

MOAR PICS wink.gif

Razer is TOP NOTCH, no doubt. Always is. Let's see how long this keyboard lasts LOL. It feels so so gooood on the fingers. Looks to DIE for. Tricky as heck to get out of the darn package though. Make sure you open on the floor and not on the table.

Again guys, sorry for the lousy pics but you have to admit the Samsung Galaxy S takes decent pics.

But okay I really need your guys' help to get the most out of this monitor. I have been researching my butt off for a couple days now and I still have some question. I apologize for being such a total NOOB.

Uhm.. there was a recent patch for NVIDIA cards to not support CRT mode that correlates 3D working on non-NVIDIA ready 3D Monitors.

I think you should have gone with a different monitor if you wanted NVIDIA 3D support.

Here's a Q&A taken straight out of the fanclub for this monitor:

Q: Will this work with Nvidia GPU ?
A: Yes and No, for the 120hz it works great. It is as smooth as butter on my 570's in SLI. BUT this will not work fully with Nvidia 3D Vision. 2D to 3D conversion works the same and also built in 3D in games like Crysis 2 with built in SBS 3D (Side by Side) works flawlessly with Nvidia or AMD. (Edit: The 3D Vision emulator seems to work well if you set your response time to Normal it will eliminate ghosting.)

Q: Will they ever add support for Nvidia 3D Vision ?
A: Most likely Never, Nvidia claims they didn't work with them in creating the monitor (Pay them royalties)


You can read more about setting up 3D on this monitor in this thread : http://www.overclock.net/t/1129341/samsung-sa950-and-sa750-owners-club

This is where I was getting my info from,

"There seems to be 2 way to get 3D vision to run on the monitor, cant say how well it works since I have not tried it myself. But here is a link to the forums
"I've had the same concerns but I'm happy to announce that 3D-Vision does work on the SA950.
You'll simply have to choose "Generic CRT-Display" in the settings and it will run nvidia 3D-Vision just as great as you would on a 3D-Vision-Ready Display with Glasses.
It will let the driver think you are running a 3DTV-Play Screen just without the limit in resolution/fps, so you get full Dual-Link-DVI support 1920x1080 / 120hz(60hz per eye)

If you dont have the 3D vision IR Emitter you will need to download some software to trick the drivers
http://hotfile.com/dl/111389928/3d22e5e/3D-Vision-Emulator.zip.html "

I can not find the Generic CRT Display option.

I am running 285 drivers. .

Thank you very much for your time.

And I did not buy this monitor to play 3D. . I bought it because I thought it was the best 120hz 27 inch on the market. But that does not mean I dont want to take full advantage of the emulator.

Yeah the Generic CRT option was taken out on the recent releases of NVIDIA drivers. You have to find the one that still has it or find someone who made a custom driver of some sort..

Sorry I can't help much X_x I personally don't have 3D Vision as of yet.. but from research this is what I hear.

Thank you for clearing that up I really appreciate it. I wonder which driver was the last to have it. Hmm.

I am just really curious as to what exactly I need to do to get the most out of it.

What settings should I use?

What do I have to do exactly in order to reap the full benefit of the 3D technology with my Nvidia based card?

What 3D settings should I use? 2d-3d?

What is side to side exactly?

I am just so out of it I feel so stupid and I really do not know where to start.

I really use this computer for gaming more than anything. And in 2D this thing is pure awesome.

I just freaking LOVE this thing. I am so glad I got this one. And it looks really quite nice, even before I turn it on haha.

I got the monitor today and it rocks, and yeah I had no luck with the 3D vision emulator. I tired the TriDef software and while decent is was not as good as 3D vision the resolution seem to be halved in the SBS mode. 3D on the PS3 with the HDMI 1.4 worked great though, and movies on the PC as well played fine for me with my power DVD 11 software. I got this monitor mainly for 2D gaming so I'm happy with it. Oh and the 3D glasses the monitor comes with are much more comfortable than my 3D vision 1 glasses, especially when I have my headset on.

These are the settings I'm using. I used SeanPoe settings as a reference point, and just went on from there. these worked for me.

Set the monitor to the Samsung Magic Bright: Standard preset (this will change to custom once you make changes, but it's a good starting point)
The other two Samsung Magic settings set to off
Brightness 45
Contrast 79
Sharpness 60
Response Time: Fastest (if playing in 3D mode change to normal)
HMDI black level: Normal
Red 35
Green 42
Blue 42
Gamma Mode 3
All Eco settings Off

How does your new monitor handle BF3 @ 120hz? Did you have to lower some settings on your 570?
