Anyone recommend the best 3D monitor for gaming (mainly FPS)?

Minimum of 22inch.

Suggestions:
BenQ XL2410T

Asus PG276

Acer GD235HZ and Alienware OptX AW2310

Just wanted to see what the consensus is out there?

BTW - Sorry about listing this in graphics card sub category, but there is no monitor sub-section.

I think all monitors above are great for 3D gaming...
Well, let's hear the others opinions.

Acer GD235HZ looks promising, but we need an opinion from an experienced person about them.

Looks like not many people have an opinion on this one...

I've always liked asus monitors and it is the largest one so that would be my chioce if cost isn't a concern, but I've never seen any of those models personally so I can't really make a recomendation.

Problem with the Asus one is that there are no reviews and no release date...

Is price and issue? Have you a budget?

From what I've seen, the Alienware is still best out of the 120hz/3d monitors. With that said, I'm still quite disappointed with the variety that's out there after all this time. I'm still in the market for one, but they really haven't done enough since they first started releasing them to make me budge.

The glaring difference between the three is the size. The Asus is a 27 inch, much bigger than the others. That is the only one I would consider.

All the 3D monitors have ghosting issues right ? if there, then i would´t get one of these..
December 5, 2010 9:28:26 AM

Hmmm, Asus VG236... another one to consider then. Shame the larger one is not available. I wonder though if the larger 27inch screen would make the dots to big to consider sticking with the smaller model since I will be using it on a desk.

If you want to get bigger monitor (larger than 23"/24") then you must sit a little far away from your desk...
December 5, 2010 9:55:34 AM

That is not going to be practical given the room I am using, and I have also seen some comments on the web about 27inch being too large to focus on all the screen, so looks like 22-24inch is where I need to go.

As I am running a 27 inch screen, I would have to say, there is nothing you need to do differently in terms of your ergonomics. The pixel size is also not an issue on my rig. Besides giving a much more immersive gaming experience, the thing that I really notice is there seems to be a lot of screen desktop space for placing windows side by side or maximizing to a big full screen.

No price limit other than the experience needs to justify the cost. I don't mind paying more for a better product, but I still have to justify the expense to myself.

Shame your monitor is not 3D, but thanks for the input. 27 inch 3D monitors seem to be rare, if not impossible to find at the moment.

I am warming to the BenQ XL2410T as LED tends to be the way forward.

Not to mention the Anandtech review, which was the reason I bought it.


Well it seems there are mixed reviews about the Asus. Bit-tech review is not so favorable.

I suppose there will always be a mixture of opinions unless something is really outstanding.

I got a good deal on my monitor at Costco... right before I heard about 120Hz 3D ready monitors. To my knowledge there are no 27 inch 3D monitors out there. To confuse things, Nvidia has a list of 3D ready monitors. Does this mean these are the only 120 hz monitors out there, or are these just the ones that have been "certified" by Nvidia, although others may work as well.

I know I will be slow to adopt 3D, but I recently tried out a three screen 3D racing simulator using Nvidia 3D Vision... it was awesome!

Cheers for the feedback. I think the BenQ is the one unless I hear something bad about it. Will only be using one screen though, but that should keep the frame rate high!

Alright, well I guess I should add that I love it too, just to add to the other positives.

Just to say I ordered the BenQ XL2410T. Unfortunately it is still very new, so getting hold of one may take a month.

This may not seem practical but if money is not an issue then why not get a simple 42" LED HDTV with 3D?
December 12, 2010 1:57:39 PM

Well a 42" on my computer desk with me right in front of it is a little impractical! It will be used in a small bedroom/office.

I may go down the 3D route with my telly in the future, but this will give me a taster for what is possible.

I wouldnt buy a 3D monitor yet, 3d effet are not super good, I buyed a Asus VG236H 23" and sold it next 2 day because the 3D is not that great, its good when you put full indept setting its like you are in the game, but lots of ghosting, not only on the asus monitor. And after 5 min you get headache. Up to you but I CAN GUARANTEE you will regret buying 3d monitor right now, its the future but not at this state. I would wait untill the effet is UNREAL, not just some stupid effet that come out of the screen. IMO i regret only for the 3D porn, it was great. OH and a 120hz monitor without 3D for gaming, you INSTANT notice the sweetness for the eye candy if you running +60 fps game.

I don't know, some people think 3D is great, including myself, and as you said, the bump up from 60fps is substantial in itself.
December 13, 2010 8:52:03 AM

i dont know if i can tell great but for now its just some effet that i would say its not FULL 3D but just partial 3D effet and there a lot of ghosting still.

I just demo'ed it in the store, and it looked really good. I can imaging if you were to adjust the individual settings, it would be even better. I did notice some ghosting in the store. My issue is that there are no really large screens that officially support 3D. There is also a lot of talk about screens that do 3D without glasses. These are a way away, but clearly the wave of the future.
December 13, 2010 7:14:34 PM

Could you confirm which monitor?
