AOC Releases 23-inch Flicker-Free 3D Monitor

By - Source: AOC PR | B 26 comments

It's flicker-free 3D at a 1920 x 1080 resolution thanks to AOC's new 23-inch Full HD 3D monitor.

On Wednesday AOC launched the e2352Phz, a 23-inch HD monitor that promises "flicker-free" 3D by using the company's FPR 3D technology. AOC says the tech will eliminate annoying eye fatigue and dizziness that typically occurs when viewing 3D monitors offered by rival manufacturers.

"AOC’s new flicker-free 3D monitor lets you experience what 3D was meant to be – with clear, bright and vivid images that make your display come to life," said Robert Velez, AOC Marketing Manager. "Whether you are gaming on your computer or watching your favorite movie, this high quality 23-inch monitor can’t be beat in terms of value, features and price point."

The device specs claim the monitor offers crisp, clean image quality with 20,000,000:1 DCR and 5 ms response time, the ability to display more than 16.7 million colors, built-in speakers and a built-in VESA stand for desktop placement or wall mounting. Other specs include direct insert I/O for easy plug-in, HDMI 1.4a input, 2D-to-3D image conversion, and EPEAT certification. It also comes packed with two pairs of polarized glasses -- one full set and one clip-on.

"While conventional 3D systems require more hardware and are more costly, the AOC 3D monitor is simple to set up with plug-and-play connection to any PC and even easily converts pictures, games and videos from 2D to 3D," the company said. "Additionally, the HDMI input can be directly connected to multiple devices like console game players and Blu-ray players."

The AOC 3D Monitor (e2352Phz) is now available for $299 at TigerDirect.com and BestBuy.com, among other retailers.

    3d gaming is amazing, I just wish it didn't use so much of my GPU performance......

    All I want is a high-quality 21" 120Hz IPS-based 3D LCD with both dual-DVI, DP, and HDMI (for hooking up consoles, as well as an ATI or NVidia card). Price is no object, as long as it is built to last. Is that too much to ask?

    A video board capable of driving said display at 1080p in 3D for $250 or less while drawing less than 200W would also be great. ATI dropped the ball w/ the 7xxx series - hopefully NV can pick up the slack.

    Makes me wonder if AOC is stepping up their game and are going to become like ASUS when it comes to quality/renown.

    I remember first seeing ASUS and thinking "who the hell are these guys"?

    e2352Phz, just for a second I saw 2352PHz :-) it's like the screen renders fps even before it's processed by graphics card..

    3d is a realy persenal thing, some like some dont and diff people se diff amounts of 3d if you got some damage or are born weaker in 1 eye you can get a hard time getting a good experiense. i got a 3d screen and if you are not sure you like to get one, i advise you to try and get a hold of 1 and try it for around 5 hours before getting one it takes 1 hour to realy get the feel of it and some more to get a feel for how long you can sit infront of it. i cant handle the glasses but i got tight g930 logi headset so it sits on my ears only. and if you are yet to play fps in 120Hz then plz try 60 to 120 is a diff you cant realy c it but you do feel the flow is so much smother and when you turn fast and alot you get so much more controle. sorry for my spelling dont bother trying to fix it youll need a life time ;b

    I hear you, though I'd much prefer a 1920x1200 IPS 120hz with pivot for 3x1 Eyefinity portrait. I was super excited to read about the new LG DM92, until I found out it wasn't a true 120hz screen and didn't offer pivot. I personally have no interest in the 3d aspect, I just want 120hz 2d.

    Here's to hoping Dell will roll out a new u24xx 120hz sometime in the near future.

    I just check the spec of this AOC monitor. It is not even 120HZ and has a slow 5ms. Not worth the money. I'm currently using the ACER 23.6 3D monitor. It makes buzz sound when displaying dark images and has terrible ghosting double image effect during 3D. I need a better one that does not cost too much money.

    So let me get this straight, if you're watching a video from a non-3D camera, the monitor will convert it to 3D?

    This is a passive 3d monitor. Its advantages are cheaper glasses (and cost generally), typically a brighter image, and if you're in the right spot, low ghosting. The glasses are any circular polarized glasses, which are starting to be offered in stylish formats (and can be used as sunglasses).

    Active panels (120hz) are more fun to use in 2d (due to 120hz refresh, great for fast-action gaming like FPS or racing) but cost more and are all TN panels (for those that get worked up about TN vs. IPS vs. VA). Active glasses are pricy and the shutter panels can disorient *some* people.

    Honestly I'd go with the Viewsonic V3D over this AOD panel, or for a better passive screen get the Acer HR274H (not HN274H which is an active panel). The latter is compatible with Nvidia's drivers which are still the best of the three 3d driver solutions (3d Vision, DDD, iZ3D).

    For a pivoting 120hz monitor only BenQ offers one in the form of the discontinued XL2410T and new XL2420T. Otherwise you'll need a VESA mount which should work with almost any monitor.

    Another important thing to mention is that Passive 3D halves the resolution (they're still 60Hz). So you end up with 1920x540. (2D is normal)
    You also need to sit properly (angle / distance) or you get crosstalk.
    Passive screens are also usually pretty slow, which means a lot of ghosting in games.

    Here's a review for this screen

    Transsive: Just read that. 5ms panel with 17ms 'ghosting' is pretty bad. The already-out V3D231 passive is a 2ms panel. Good point about the 540 vertical rez. In practice one eye is seeing the odd lines of a full picture and the other is seeing the even lines, so it's not as if half the pixels are simply lost.

    My own experience seeing passive screens is that my mind is putting the two images together to appear complete; people who've owned passive monitors do report that small text can be difficult, however.

    An OLED or Crystal LED monitor is sounding good to me right now.

    @wererat

    Yeah, the V3D231 is about twice as fast with 9ms of ghosting.

    Still, a fast 120Hz display goes as low as 5ms ghosting time.

    I haven't tried 3D yet, so I can't compare the tech, but I'd lean towards active screens.

    you want active shutter for gaming.
    and if possible, grab a 3d dlp projector for zero ghosting. (i havent tested the pricier displays, as i am not going to spend 5-600 dollars on a 24" display)

    I could care less about movies, but 3d gaming is incredible.
