What you all need are a fine piece of 3D glasses and a standart monitor to get your 3D view!!!
This 3D TV is just a commercial trick for those who don't know how to spend their money, i am serious!


Actually, you can't just get any 3D glasses and view 3D content on a standard monitor. Let me explain it to you guys. There are two types of 3D glasses (and naturally, displays or monitors). The one we use in cinemas are called passive 3D glasses. These don't need batteries and connection to the display to get the illusion of 3d. The other one are called active glasses. These need batteries and need to connect to the display to see the 3D illusion. ALL home 3D entertainment systems use active glasses. Passive 3D displays DO NOT EXIST yet for mainstream home entertainment.

The technology requires active 3D glasses to sync with the monitor to correctly block the frames intended for each of the eyes. This also entails that the 3D glasses should be compatible with your particular 3D display. There is no way your ordinary monitor would support 3d glasses doh.gif

25 FPS will not turn into 60 or 120 FPS just because you have a monitor capable of 60 or 120 FPS!!!!
Tell me someone for sakes, that 3D monitors are not meant for movies, just for games! In my opinion they are over-hyped!!!!

you were pretty clear... you were just wrong. the movies are rated at 24FPS... but that is just me picking on you

Due to our perception of light and the higher light output of most HDTV displays compared to cinema projectors, it is best to obtain a display that can provide proper film cadence at least 3 times the 24p frame rate (~72Hz); otherwise, the lower multiples can result in a flickering effect, especially in brighter scenes. It is also important to recognize that many displays on the market will accept a 24p input, but will internally apply 2:2 or 2:3 pulldown to achieve 50Hz/59.94Hz output. Even displays supporting proper film cadence may require you to engage a special mode or change the default configuration to avoid sub-optimal pulldown.

Passive glasses of course. Yes - i get it that with real 3D monitor you can watch a game with active glasses and get much better picture quality - that is the main reason why 3D monitor is better than normal monitor, so i imagine Battlefield 3 looking all shiny through that view. Guess to some it is worth it.
