So I got a Samsung SM2233RZ, thinking how cool it would be to play Fallout3 in REAL 3D!!
I was VERY disappointed with the screen and am now in the process of sending this screen back.
I have read lots of good reviews on this screen (as a simple monitor), but then I found an issue with ghosting (where left and right images are not clearing quickly enough) which was REALLY bad on this screen! Looking around for the terms SM2233RZ and Ghosting and founds lots of complaints with no resolution.
Shame as it has so much potential.
So..... my question is:
Anyone make a recomendation for a 120mhz screen that is good for Nvidia 3D?
EVGA GeForce GTX 470 Superclocked 1280MB, with an XPS 630i PC. 4gb ram, 2.4ghz quad core. And vista today, but I just got my Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade DVD at last.
A higher refresh rate means more frames are being drawn to the screen per second. As such, you need a moniter that also has a low Response Time (The time it takes a pixel to physically change state). For a 120Hz LCD, anything above 2ms is frankly, too slow on average. [Most 3d moniters still use 5ms, which simply isn't fast enough]. You're moniter "claims" 3ms in 3d mode, but given the 2d number of 5ms, I wouldn't be trusting that too much...
Hence, why I favor CRT technology; its far superior to LCD when it comes to high refresh rates.
you may want to look into the ACER GD245HQ, I've been using one for about a month now and I don't have anything bad to say about it at all, The picture quality is amazing and I haven't noticed any ghosting at all, mind you I haven't used nVidia's 3D vision technology with it yet so I cant comment on its 3D performance.
The BenQ XL2410T looks exciting. Waiting on a review of it.
One question though, I saw someone said on a video review of NVidia 3D vision you need a dual link DVI cable??? Does that mean a DVI cable with one plug at one one end and two at the other? It this needed for the 3D to run fast enough??? Confussed!!!
Apparently the BenQ will offer a 2ms response, and that's good.... if it's true! as there will be little or no ghosting. But I won't know for sure until someone tries it out.
Again, remember that when using 3d, you are drawing TWICE as many frames. Hence why some moniters are great...right until you half the time between needing to draw a new image. Hence, why 3D is less likely to suceede now then it was 20 years ago, as moniter tech has gotten significantly worse. [Seriously, I'll take a 240Hz CRT with a .00001ms Response Time any day. Find a way to make them thin(er) already.]
OK well seeing as Benq have just bumped the price of the XL2410T for Chistmas (thanks again to commercialism by greedy companies at Christmas!) I'll be waiting until the new year to purchase a screen. Someone should have tried and tested the XL2410T on Stereo 3D, and written a review by then.
