Hi there!
I'm searching through hundreds of forums but no answer...
confused.gif

I just bought an Acer HN274H, 27" 3D Vision ready, 1080p, 120 Hz
I want to add 2 GD245HQ or the new GN245HQ (they're almost same product), to build a 3D Vision Surround. So I will have a central 27 inches and 2 24 inches on the sides.
I know that it works in 2D, but I wonder if it will also in 3D. All 3 monitors are 120 Hz, 1920x1080. So I guess should be possible..."guess"
Anyone knows?

They have to have the same sync polarity - it might work, but you're definitely taking a gable, and with the different sizes its going to look strange IMO - I would A. sell the 27" one and get 3 of the same 24", or get 3X 27" ones.

Probably not.

I tried 27" Acer with 23" Acer GDs, didn't work.

Tried the Acer GDs with an Asus VG, also didn't work.

I did read that there are one or two combinations out there that have worked, at least in the past.

Bottom line it doesn't make sense to try. And if you are using three monitors all with built-in emitters, that's a huge waste of money even if it does work.

Really didn't work?!?!?!?!?!?! I was almost sure about that...

So next try should be 27" Acer with 2 GN245HQ (new one just released)...Anyone out there?
Anyway yes, 3 monitors with 3 built-in emitters is a waste...but the Acer HN274H is the only 27" right now, and is the one that I own.
So in case, I have to buy 2 more of them, and have 3 glasse (which is ok for blu ray...), but also 3 emitters...

trust me when i say "IT IS HUGE!!!"

you need a massive desk to set it up on...

27 inch 3d is like discovering fer the first time that yer wee wee has a magic special feeling jet propulsion power.

Yeah
shame there is not a cheaper version without the emitter.
But I am going to justify the cost of an additional two, cuz I need to git more glasses fer my family who keep bugging me during my blu ray movietime. In which case...
@ $100 bucks fer extra nvidia specs I suppose it's only $49 bucks wasted on each additional built in emitter. And even then ... the extra monitors can travel to other parts of the house for a 3d family lan party! ( thats if you have a family that likes fun )

3 27 inch monitors on one desk is insane?
I absof*ckin'lutely hope so!

Hey Caina...
At cheetahdeals.com they carry refurbished 27inch 3d Acers for only $539.
two of them shipped to md, usa cost $17.34.

I missed free shipping deal by a day! so the online chat representative "ask fer Rich" gave me a coupon code for 5% ( a search for online coupons only results in expired codes ).
A -$53.90 savings...
which more than offset the price of shipping! ( I saved $36.56 more dollars than if I had "JUST" gotten the free shipping )

$1,041.44 Total fer 2 Acer HN274H BMIIID compared to $1358 brand new @new egg.

1 year warranty for things to go wrong compared to 3 year warranty of a brand new unit.

Extended service was only for a year, otherwise for another year I may have considered it.
For now I have my fingers crossed that Paypal dispute service, 1 year warranty and the few good reviews for cheetah pan out in my favor.
Other than that...
If I have not had success in fixing broken monitors in the past ( replacing blown caps ) I may have not taken the chance.
In the description 3d glasses are mentioned as "included".
Not sure about the HDMI and DVI cables ( which would not be as problematic as a missing AC/DC power plug )

http://www.cheetahdeals.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=L%2DET%2EHH4HP%2E001

I got the last two units, however I got mine by adding my email to the notification list as well. ( These units go fast otherwise ).

If all goes well ( or not ) I'll update with outcome if anyone is interested in trying the same.
