I found the $19.99 PS3 3D glasses thanks! I am enjoying my display so far its been working fine for about 3 months I must have gotten a good unit. Um I hope that you all have the same luck as me and enjoy this monitor... this is my first step into 3d gaming and so far I am enjoying it but its just a little extra and wow to any game so far Halo Anniversary and super stardust are the most notable of the 3d effect.

Ok, I think I've gotten my first hint of a problem with the display. It turned black for a second while playing a movie. If this starts happening more frequently, I suspect I'll have to get Sony to fix it. Is anyone familiar with what I would need to do in that case?

OT: just picked mine up and set it up, i'm trying to watch a movie but its saying that it doesn't detect a 3d BR player. Its a ps3, so I know it is. Any suggestions?


Did you make sure to set up the display settings on your PS3 to work with the 3D display?

Bought one myself today, using a $5 rewards certificate, and paid for it with some of the rewards points from my card. Made sure to get the extended warranty too. Thing is pretty sweet, though the glare is a bit distracting.

They seem to be getting snatched up now, at least in my area. Only one store in two pages of stores with it in stock now. I caved and bought it.

I picked one up, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep it.

I've been trying to get 3d to work on my PC for a good chunk of the day without any luck.

I was following the guide I found here: http://forums.redfla...isplay-1175972/ . So I installed an older version of the Nvidia drivers, installed the display driver so Nvidia thinks the monitor is an officially supported one, and installed the 3DTV software. Once it's installed I get an error "Primary display's adapter does not support 3D Vision."

According to the Nvidia site, my video card (GeForce GT 335M) is in the list of working cards for Nvidia 3DTV Play: http://www.nvidia.co...quirements.html and in the list of supported cards for 3D Vision http://www.nvidia.co...quirements.html. I'm not sure what else I can do.

Any suggestions?

Anybody have any thoughts/comments/experiences regarding these 3D displays? What percentage are actually dying? You only hear about the duds....

Local BB still has a couple of them...tempting/taunting me.

Ive had mine for over 100 days now and it's still going strong. I use it regularly for PS3 games as well as Star Trek marathons on Netflix.

Haven't had any issues whatsoever. The monitor is on a good 10 hours a day while my 3yr old watches netflix and plays his games.

Got mine a couple of months ago just before Kmart started their clearance on these. I use it everyday for heavy gaming and netflix and stuff, so far it's been working like a champ. The 3D is great if the size fits your needs. I turned down the brightness a bit from the default settings and it still looks gorgeous. I also sprung for the BB 2 year warranty since I had the credit so I'm not worried about it much. But, I have not had any problems with flickering or dead pixels or anything like that.

My only real gripe is the built-in speakers kinda suck, so I just use some pc speakers and that works great.

No offense, but you let your 3 year old watch TV and play games for 10 hours a day? Gulp

He doesn't watch or play that much, the monitor and the PS3 are just on the majority of the day. He might actually play/watch something 3-4 hours out of the day.

I haven't had any problems with my display. But I have it hooked up to my Windows PC, and it gets used very lightly at the moment. (no more than an hour a day, and often less) So my use case isn't exactly high-volume. Also, I have never run it in 3D, which I would imagine would increase the risk of overheating or screen burn-in.

I've actually been enjoying the built-in speakers. But then, I've been using it as a computer monitor, and compared to the average computer speakers it is just fine. (compared to the surround sound system in my living room I would imagine it's not nearly as capable)

No problems with the screen or performance to report here.

My gripe is the fact that it doesn't come with a friggin' remote control. Seriously Sony WTF? The thing was $500 when it first came out. You couldn't throw in at least a crappy $2 remote with power and volume? I have never bought a TV without a remote. I remember dial tvs as a kid, but those are ancient, long gone dinosaurs. Even super cheap off-brand $20 dvd players come with a remote. I'd have taken a remote over an hdmi cable (which is included) and Motorstorm Apocalypse (also included) combined.

Otherwise good TV imo. And yeah the speakers aren't that good, but they're all that way on the flat screen tvs. Not really worse than what I've heard on my tvs.

We have 2 of them and both have the flicker problem. Hers we have had a month or 2 longer than mine, and hers did it every so often just for a split second or 2. Then hey few days before the Walking Dead Season was to start, it started doing it repeatedly, like 5 or 6 times in a row and every 10 minutes or so. Of course, that meant I had to swap hers out with mine, because there was NO way she was putting up with that for the Walking Dead :) Mine only did it every so often before we switched them, but has since started doing it more frequently. Granted, she does use it more than I had previously.

Once hers started doing it more frequently, I finally put in a call to Sony, and the lady knew what I was talking about, and sent the RMA box right out. I was expecting it to take about a month to get it, based on io's prior posts, but it actually showed up within a week. That's as far as I can report at the moment though, because even though I got the box quickly, it has been sitting at the foot of the bed since we got it o.0 I guess I should probably get 1 of them sent out, huh?

I'm not worried about it though, because I went into fully aware of the problems, planned on stress testing them until they did flicker, so I could go ahead and send them back to Sony for replacement/repair sooner rather than later. I also have Best Buy's 4 yr warranty on 1 of them, and since they are tracked by sku, and not serial number, I should be able to use the warranty on either 1 of them if there's a problem down the road.

Oh yea, and otherwise, we absolutely love them.

I constantly see this model getting returned because people don't know how to use it, and for odd reason it wasn't compatible with one of the cable company's HD set-top box. I wanted to snag one, but whatever. I'm glad people are enjoying their 3DTV though.

Yeah I think I have a little monster as well. Although most of the time he just wants to play iPad games (constantly switching games). Every once in a while he'll get really excited about playing a game on the TV.

I've had it since it was $160 a few months back and I love it. The display looks great, and the 3D works well. Someone posted a link with a great way to optimize the settings (i.e. not having the brightness on max), and the display looks very crisp. I'd definitely recommend it.

You do understand this is a 'display' and NOT a tv? They even say it can be used as a computer monitor. But, yeah, it would have been cool to include a remote.

sorry but considering it has no TV tuner built into it, it is not a TV

Granted @ $500 it probably should have come with a remote, just wanted to make sure you two realized that just about any universal remote will work. I'm pretty sure it was the first Sony code listed for my Comcast remote. I don't know about a 3d button, because I've only used it for a couple 3d games with the my ps3 and it automatically switched, but I'm pretty sure all the other buttons work, including going through the menus.

I've had it for a few months and so far the only complaint are the terrible built in speakers. The screen is pretty reflective but I got used to that.
