I was considering the Samsung S27A950D but all the problems with getting the 3D to work with Nvidia cards has put me off, so I'm having to reconsider my options.

I definitely would like a screen that is 27" and 3D, that is definite, as I want to watch 3D movies on it. The other thing is I want a really highly responsive screen for 2D 120hz gaming that has little to no ghosting in 3D and has good input lag. Unfortunately I keep reading conflicting info about all the various screens which makes it harder to decide which is best, so I decided I was better asking advice here.

Also colour is pretty important (viewing angles are not) and again have heard conflicting reports of some 3D screens looking washed out and generally being poor with colours. I don't expect IPS type colours, but more something that is not totally inaccurate looking and going to make movies look dull or weird.

My three buying options are:

BenQ XL2420T

Acer 3D 120Hz HN274Hbmiiid

Asus VG278H

Of the 3 choices the Benq seems the best all-round screen from what I have read, but I would prefer something larger. The Acer is good but exhibits crosstalk and ghosting in 3D films and games (although can be tweaked for improvement a little in the settings) and also has high input lag for 120hz screen in 2D gaming. The Asus has good all-round performance but its downfall is the colours being not so good.

The other option to consider are the older Nvidia 3D vision 1 range from Viewsonic, Asus and Alienware but I'm reluctant to go for those because they are now obsolete tech and are still smaller screens than I would like.

If anyone can vouch for any of these particular screens, and simply state the pros and cons, that would help a lot.


thank you
