Do you feel the same way about the larger LG 3D displays? I found that they had pretty good viewing angles. Since this smaller display is using simular technology as the big one, I would think it should be simular...



Well i havent seen a lot of the passive tvs. I am in the market for a 3D monitor for my office to use as a second display for my macbook pro, and I figured why not get one that does 3d and ill hook my PS3 up to it too. Ive only seen the 23" lg and the ps3 display. between the 2, the ps3 is a lot nicer and better quality. I just noticed a sort of double vision hazy effect with the lg and had to move around to find the "sweet spot." The PS3 display didnt have that problem. On the other hand, i still havent bought it yet, so I dont know the difference between active and passive when it comes to playing for more than 15 mins or so. I hear the active shutters can give you a headache. I just sold a ton of my vintage game collection, so I might go pick up the ps3 display in the morning.

$199 or less\\:D/:whee:

That's MY pricepoint on this overpriced bitch.:razz: Now if they threw a PS3 in at $299, I might consider it.:booty:


$199 for a 24-inch 3D ready LED TV with 1 pair of glasses and a game included? Best of luck to you and yours.

I didn't have that issue with the larger LG passive 3DTVs I have seen demoed. The next time you go to Best Buy you should demo the LG and see if you see the same issue. This might be a case of your individual impression may be different than mine.

Maybe so. But I'm not interested in 3D all that much. I have a 55" Panasonic in my living room, and my wife thinks 3d is stupid. Being the huge tech geek I am, I figured a nice little personal 3d set-up in my office that doubles as a dual display for my macbook pro would be perfect to scratch the 3d gaming itch. So far, I would take the ps3 display over the lg monitor, but as far as larger hdtv's go, you may be right. I could possibly enjoy the larger lg models. There is also an acer 3d monitor that is ps3 compatible that I'd like to check out. I do want to check out more passive tvs though.

First off, it doesn't have a tuner in it, so it couldn't qualify as a tv. Second, I don't like the choice of game it comes with since I'm not into racing at all. Third, I've tried 3-D at HHGregg on a much bigger display model tv and it gave me a frickin' headache after 20 minutes of standing there watching it. So I'd likely sell the glasses and game to further offset my cost out of pocket. Since it's only really a monitor, $200 or so is the max I'd pay for one, so that's why I said $200.;)

I don't know if it is still up at Best Buy, but LG had a amazing 3D demo for their larger 3D display. It was an clip for a 3D IMAX movie "Under the Sea", in it there was a large fish that seemed to project 4 feet out from the surface of the TV, it was an amazing effect. If you are a member of Costco, they may have 3D demo set up for LG as well...

The viewing angles on this thing are HORRIBLE. It takes a bit of time trying to figure out where to sit to get the perfect 3d effect. I was also interested in the LG because of the price. Its not as nice as the PS3 display, IMO.


This review agrees with your assesment:

That might be the reason it got marked down so much so soon. I may buy it anyway so I can see it for myself...

Reading through the comments, some of you really are cheap asses lol...

This is a good deal imo, the tv size isn't a problem at all to me, especially since im in the fighting game community and we are used to playing on monitors around this size sometimes smaller. Imo big tvs are good for media, not gaming, especially for hardcore gamers like myself.

Also I heard the glasses that come with this are legit, sorry I dont know much about 3D but a review said they were some kind of glasses that were good. People saying this should be $200 are on drugs, the 19 inch blacklight led monitors run for a little less than that and they arent 3D.


this is what i'm trying to say in my previous post. it is a good deal for what it offers if you are in the market for this type of gadget (i am not in the market, but still think it is a good deal).

the problem is people are only comparing the size and prices of 32'' - 46'' 720p 60hz crappy old tech tv that cost $300-500 being sold at target or walmart instead of comparing the specs of this sony monitor to equivalent newer computer monitors with 3d capabilities that are currently priced around $500-750.

The farther you stand from the 3D display, the more that barracuda fish pops out at you. I had it eating some little kids head one time.

I bought one the day it came out to replace my 19" computer monitor and I am very happy with it. I preordered it from gamestop by some certain date so on top of Motorstorm they also included Resistance 3 and Uncharted 3 with it so I was ok with the price.

I figured it would be a good upgrade for my computer room and it would be more then enough to satisfy the very small interest I had in 3D. After playing Uncharted 3 and GT5 on it I am considering buying a bigger 3D TV. I couldn't care less about watching movies or TV in 3D but video games are pretty awesome.

It still hasn't even made it into my computer room yet. It is sitting on my living room table and I have been playing mostly on that instead of my 55" Samsung.

If you haven't seen any of the top-tier 3D releases you're missing out on quite a bit, because the 3D on movies have noticeably more depth.

I wonder how the input lag is on this. 3D processing probably adds some major frames of lag.

Someone with a Rock Band 2/3 setup with the light sensor on the guitar should measure for us.

It probably doesn't touch the ASUS, i'm betting it's quite awful, like most cheaper HDTVs.

You mean like the wishful thinking that got me a $15 PSone/LCD combo from Kmart(that was luckily buried in the back of the damn case;)) or multiple Black Ops Prestige Editions back in July or so from BB for $15 each?;)

Insane deals happen, more frequently than you might imagine. You just have to be there at the right time to grab them. So while you(and others) just assume it'll never happen, my opinion is that it COULD happen. Will it happen for certain? Don't know.

But that's the fun part of trying to get these insane deals: hunting for them.;)

I took a picture today of my TV after I unboxed it.

Spoiler


I will say that it seemed bigger than I expected. To warn those with larger heads, the 3D glasses may fit very tight (I have a skinny head so it doesn't matter). I tried playing MotorStorm Apocalypse (my original copy since I already owned the game) and Sonic Generations. MotorStorm Apocalypse was amazing just how everything popped out. Sonic Generations was pretty cool too, but took a little adjusting to get the 3D setting I want (Sonic moving fast can make it tricky). Once I try out all my 3D games (I have a bunch) and get another pair of 3D glasses (and invite a CAG friend over), I may blog my full detailed impressions of the display.


Definitely looking forward to your write up - might convince me to grab one for the bedroom. :D

I saw a couple of you asking about the "new" Sony remote - if I buy one of these, will my "old" Sony Bluetooth remote for my PS3 not work with this TV? Kind of weird they don't include at least a minimal remote - not like I need to add to my damn collection.

I bought my 55" 3D mostly for gaming. I have enjoyed the 3D movies a lot more, and I thought the gaming was awesome. The Lion King 3D brought a smile to my face instantly.

my gamestop said its valid and will ring up automatically.

I've read several different people are having problems with the screen going black occasionally for a second, anyone have one here that have had this problem?

A lot of people say they have had the problem on multiple displays here(they also seem to be having trouble getting support from the device through sony):
http://community.us....tart=0&tstart=0


This has me thinking twice about wanting the display at any price, and especially not from gamestop due to their return policy.

I just can't see spending $400 on a 24" TV. I understand what the TV was made for, but I'd rather save up my pennies and buy something 20-30" bigger and that I don't have to sit 2 feet in front of.

This is still $499.99 at FYE/Transworld stores BUT they have a $100 mail-in rebate offer with purchase of it. So if perhaps you could find a way to convince a manager there to actually drop it the $100 everybody else pretty much has already, then that'd make this $299.99 after MIR.;)

Could be better, it's shit compared to the EVO monitor. At least it's not as bad as Samsung's garbage ass TVs.
