What games do you plan to play in 3d, and what 3d driver? A lot of games turn out to have weird issues in 3d, not always specific to one 3d driver. Also, I can state from personal experience with a 32-inch passive-3d tv, that row-interleaved 3d looked good initially, but after a while, the text became a problem.

Have you confirmed that your movies actually support stereoscopic 3d? There aren't that many that do, and from what I've read, doing the 2d to 3d conversion in the tv or monitor won't look nearly as good.

After my own experience with passive 3d, I have trouble recommending any monitor with it, but between those two, I'd say LG is the more reputable brand; I don't see a meaningful difference in the specifications.

Neither, get a VG23AH, its and IPS passive 3D monitor. the CNET review said the 3D was bad but after some digging I found people are saying it was because he used DVI instead of HDMI. Apparently the HDMI 1.4 port it was makes the passive 3D on this beauty work well-

Plus, its got a semi-glossy screen. I haven't heard of any other IPS monitors that have this.

HDMI and DVI are both digital. It doesn't make sense to me that switching input type from one to the other could fix problems with passive 3d.

I just stated what other people have said, I'm not quite sure how it would make a difference either, but people are saying they don't experience any really bad ghosting while using hdmi.
