Monitor for Nvidia 3D vision?
I want to buy a monitor which supports Nvidia 3D vision. What are my options? Which one is best of them?
As of right now, there aren't any 1080p or higher Nvidia 3D vision monitors for sale. However, if you're patient, Acer and Alienware have both announced 1080p 120 hz monitors designed for Full HD 3D content. Hopefully the Acer will be reasonably priced as I'm hoping to get a 120 hz 1080p monitor myself regardless of whether it will be used in conjunction with 3D vision or not.
The only options available right now are the original 2 monitors that have been around since Nvidia introduced 3D vision:
Besides being only capable of 1680x1050, they both have flaws which may or may not be a dealbreaker. IMO, the biggest problem is the resolution.
Hi Guys, I have done some research on this. Alienware have a 23' true 1080p one that seems really good but it is $599 AUD it rates pretty well. It's 120hz plus 80000:1 ratio has pretty good specs 3ms Gray to Gray which is excellent for 23'. To utilise the 3d capabilites you require to purchase the 3d Nivida glasses. There are a few other brands threatening to come out soon. There are a couple in the UK that I found but again to unrealistic to export to Australia. You may have them in the US. Further, I spoke to a mate that is a scientist in vision etc and he checked out the Alienware monitor and informed me that it would be great that it is also overspecked for the human eye. To hard to explain ect but 3ms is very, very good. Some say 2ms but they are 22' the standard is around 8ms but long story and not relevent here. Oh before we have the usual Alienware is *** and too expensive.... ah I beg to differ when you consider what you are actually getting. Don't put up against non 3D ones and also check ratios, most range from 20000:1 to 50000:1 anyway hope it helps and goodluck. I don't care for brands but more what it performs and Alienware have done a good job plain and simple it appears to me that those guys really are trying to bring better gaming experience etc etc. By the way you need a 3d Nivida enabled screen + Nivida 3d glasses + Nivida 3d video card + either Windows 7 or Vista to be able to view the 3d but it also makes games that aren't 3D actually 3D. I have a friend that rates it hence why I am now getting the monitor and glasses!

I'm also seriously looking at getting this monitor, so can you please tell me what you think of it once it arrives!
Acer's New 120Hz LCD Ready for Nvidia 3D Vision
Acer GD235HZbid Black/orange 23.6" 2ms Widescreen 1080p 120Hz 3D-Ready LCD Monitor
Zalman rules! I bought a 22" from Amazon, pretty cheap for the quality... don't need any expensive 3D glasses (i've noticed that if u wanna buy another pair, is almost at the same price like the original kit). Even the ones from the cinema are working without any difference in quality. On one hand, u can get this one with 2 pairs of glasses, on the other hand, you'll have to buy a 120hz monitor, plus one pair of Nvidia 3Dvision... and the price difference? double.
Almost 300 euros for Zalman, 250+180(+150 if u want the second pair) for the second option

Also I've been told by a freind you need a monitor of at least 100Mhz refresh, not the standard 60Mhz or it will look slightly stuttery. I've not done research to find out for sure though.
you said 100Mhz refresh rate? dude are you crazy? today's computer screens are refreshing up to 120 times per second, so thats 120hz, still about MILLION TIMES behind 100Mhz...
