Keep in mind there's no tuner, so if you want to use this as an actual TV you're out of luck.

I'd probably pick one up if it fit in my bookshelf that I play games on. From what I saw of the Best Buy display, it looked really nice, even without the 3D activated.



as long as you have a CABLE box (90% of ppl do now) with component or HDMI out (for 3d tv) youll be fine. I used mine to watch Gnomeo and Juliet on STARZ 3D (starz 3d will only play on top bottom 3d in 720p format) from at&t .


so the fact that it does not have a tune DOES NOT mean its not possible to watch TV on it.

Thanks for that. I wouldn't recommend this monitor even at $99. Very shitting, and quite surprisingly, quality from Sony.

This is not a TV, but rather a display- meaning that it does not have a built in TV tuner or remote control. You probably already knew this, but others viewing this thread may not.

Also, for those thinking about using this as 3d monitor for your PC, if you have an nvidia graphic card 3d is not supported.

LAstly, here is a lengthy thread from the playstation forums about problems with the display.

$200 was my buying point, but now I think it'll hit $150.

I don't think my Best Buy has this in stock, though, so I can't PM it, and I'm definitely not giving GS my money.

I don't think GS is that worried about your money lol, I don't see what the big fuss is, they're awesome with the right promos. I know the whole gutted copy insanity, but nobody's forcing you. Let's boycott Walmart because they crap on their employees, but no, wait...their cases are sealed.....

I bought one of these about 6 months back, it failed on me within 3 weeks. Luckily I was about to return it just in time. 200 bucks is probably the best you're going to see this get to, just be make sure you get a protection plan or something with it. I'd buy it again if I didn't already buy another 32 inch 3D TV from newegg.

Only 2 HDMI and 1 component input. Sorry but no deal, I'm one of the few that still has a Wii. I don't want to buy component for the Wii with the WiiU coming out.


i doubt sony made this with ancient technology in mind, it was designed primarily for the PS3, you should've been using component cables all along with your wii...

where you also going to try and connect your vcr??

i picked up the official wii component cables at BB for $5.

They make billions of dollars selling preowned games without giving any back to the publishers/developers. Stock used games from people trading in games for maybe 15% of the actual value. To me that's like stealing from a kid. Yes you have to be an adult to trade now, but just as adults buy games for kids, they also trade for kids too. They sell used new released games for $56.99 as opposed to the new $60 game. Sure, they don't force you, but they do try to hide the fact that they have new copies whenever they could. As far as they are concerned, if they don't have any used copies, they don't have it in stock at all.

I don't have a problem with buying new games from them generally, but they tend to make me feel uncomfortable by basically telling me I'm an idiot for buying a new copy when I could save $3. and that is every time at maybe 85% of the stores I've been to.

Most recent case was when I drove 30 miles to pick up Atelier Totori CE for $30 using their in store pickup option online. Got there, and they tried to sell me a regular copy. Knowing better, I asked where's the rest of the stuff, premium box, soundtrack and all. The manager then came in from the back and said another employee had already taken all the stuff. To top it all off, they said I can definitely get the CE of the next game Atelier Meruru if I preorder it.

That said, I'll still buy the 3d display from them if they bundle everything together like they were doing before. Otherwise, I'll be pming at BB. Like I said, no problem buying new stuff from them, but they make even that difficult too.

Uhh... Sorry, always gets me fired up when someone sides with GS.

You can at least do a little research before asking these questions. There is no 'monitor only' package. They all come with motorstorm, glasses, and hdmi cable. There have been other bundles with different games like mlb and extra glasses added on top, but nobody knows for sure what this offer will be, but my bet is just the standard bundle.

Standard bundle + 1 extra game or a second pair of glasses would lock me in. $200 base isn't much better than the $300 bundles with glasses and day-one copy of the The Show 12 a few months back.

I have had this for a few months now and in my opinion it goes like this.

+Gaming color saturation is nice and rich
-Viewing angle seems bad even for a TN panel, anything directly off center the colors go to hell
-If using as a PC monitor it is lacking quite badly. I would compare it to my $120 Acer TN monitor.

If it is primarily for your PS3 and PC gaming it is absolutely nice, however If you are planning to use it to do a lot of reading it is pretty bad. I definitely don't feel remorse for buying it for $250 but I also don't feel I got any kind of deal at that purchase point.

I'm actually surprised there's as much negativity towards the display in this thread as there is considering most people seemed to be holding out for $200. At worst, it's a 24" 1080p monitor. Normally a 24" monitor for $200 would be an average/lukewarm deal, so having the 3D capability, component input, and game included as well seems like a pretty decent bundle. Although the reliability issues are disappointing.

Also, there is an ini file you can download that will allow it to work with Nvidia 3DTV, so you can still get 3D if you have an Nvidia card. Just remember that the display only has two 3D modes: 720p/60 and 1080p/24. So for 3D games you'll probably want to stick to 720p.

Oh, and Motorstorm Apocalypse currently trades in for $22 at Best Buy after the 100% boost (or $23.10 if you have GCU).

Are there even any 3D 1080 games on PS3? The 1080p/24Hz 3D is probably meant for movies. I know a couple of years ago, it came out that Sony was recommending that developers not do 3D 1080, but I don't know how many, if any, actually tried.

Nope, no PS3 games run at 1080p/24hz. It's pretty much exclusively for movies, since developers probably don't want to lock their games to 24FPS (not to mention hardly any games are 1080p to begin with). Even if you could play games at that, I'm not sure you'd want to.

I'm not siding, I just don't care about their practices knowing that I have options. Besides I don't see any complaints when they do their B2G1 promos netting you 3 relatively new releases at 50% off...

You sure about that? They had one in the back at my local GS, and when I asked what it came with, he said just the monitor. The extra glasses and game were bundled separately, not in the box itself.

I didn't see for myself, but that's what he said. And he was looking at the box.

They all come with motorstorm & glasses...GS just happens to have a $300 bundle with an extra pair of glasses & MLB the Show 12, TigerDirect also has a $300 bundle with Killzone 3 & Uncharted 3 but no extra glasses, It just varies by vendor but they all come with the base package.

1. Why do they have to give back to the publishers for the sale of used games? So you expect amazon.com, best buy and gamestop to give back to publishers? How about car dealerships that sell used cars? Should they give back to Ford, GM and Chrysler? :lol:

2. 15% TIV? You sure of that? For every game? You know that the company needs to make a profit so you have to include shipping costs to the warehouse, the salary of the employees who refurbish the games and the managers, plus the costs of benefits for these employees. I can keep going on and on. And you know that amazon and best buy have similar TIV, right?

3. Stealing? Nobody puts a gun to your heat to force those trade ins. So it is not stealing when you trade in broken stuff? (like many do).

4. So if they are out of stock of used copies, there is no stock at all even if they have new copies? That's a bold statement there. Obviously the company will push the sale of used copies since that's where they make the most profit but I have never heard of an employee that will not sell you a new copy if they have one in stock.

5. So they literally call you an "idiot" for not buying an used copy? Man, you must be really sensitive or you must go to bad locations. I have been to stores in Texas and Oklahoma (dozens of them) and I have never been called an idiot. Yes, I have dealt with bad employees but nothing to the extreme as to what you describe.

6. If that were to happen, that's when you get the manager's name and call corporate to report this shit and ask for compensation. I wouldn't put up with shit like that. I have called Best Buy corporate for shit that I got from a manager when I bought a TV. Got me a nice $50 gift card.

7. Typical "GameStop hater" that will buy stuff at GameStop when they have deals, yet bitch and complain about the company like there is no tomorrow.

8. Yeah, you are so fired up that you are ready to go to the store to buy this bundle because it is a good deal. Makes sense to me. :applause:

Agreed! So sick of the used game/give back to publisher debate. I just bought a house, was the 3rd owner. Do i have to pay the original owner? Or repay the crew that built the house because it was USED?

Buying and trading USED goods has been going on for centuries. Some game developers make a big stink and cry about it because of GREED. If someone wants to sell a game to Gamestop, get $3 for it, when they could get $14 on eBay and let GameStop make the profit, GOOD FOR GAMESTOP. Nobody is forcing you to go thru a middle man to sell goods. Some ppl act like Video Games are the only USED items that make the world turn.
