I'm using it with a Radeon HD6950 and it looks gorgeous. I need to get a stand for it so I am looking directly at it (right now I'm looking a bit down and the colors are a little off with a non-optimal viewing angle) but I'm quite happy. I did see references to NVidia dropping this monitor from the drivers after a recent-ish revision which has caused some issues.

Did you adjust the sharpness to 0 or 1 (at most)?


Bro, I owe you a beer. I'm stupid and didn't even THINK about sharpness. It was up at 3 and changing it to zero is basically night and day difference. Now I just need to figure out how to get the 3D to work in Windows 8.

What are you trying to use 3d with? If it's movies you need something like Powerdvd, if it's games the game can only be at 720p. If you want to play games that don't support 3d you can try tridef, it's pretty good but expensive.

my display is set up and I must say that its awsome in 2d alone. I played gta 4 complete on it and I love the color and sharpness. The sound level after 20 is kind of a crackling sound but overall im loving this display. Cant wait to try out assassins creed 3 on this thing !

Yeah, I tried the above method of overriding the driver but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to disable where it NEEDS digitally signed drivers. Also, will the display switch to a native 720p so it won't look so shitty or will I just have a super enlarged desktop forever?

Sound on mine whines and cracks like abitch on 35. To bad, it looks gorgeous otherwise.

I read somewhere the main failure on these can be canceled out by cranking down the backlghting a few notches. Anyone else know anything on this?

I only have it at about 20. Everything just sounds like a loud distorted crackle, you can't make any audio out but crackling basically.


There may be issue with your monitor, I only hear it at around 60+ and even then you can still hear the sound and dialogue just with intermittent crackling (during explosions or any louder parts)

So got a few of the random items and the Sony TV in. Im a bit concerned i may not find any problems with iut before the year of Sony repair service warranty is up. Im not using it as a main, just as one for my backup systems to play when i dont feel like playing on the big screen

What should i look out for? What exactly is the problem with them? I did a quick google search and it seems it has something to do with the screen flickering, or going black or something?

If thats true i should be golden. I game in a pitch black room (blackout shades and everything) So most of my TV's and monitors have the backlight set VERY low

So my husband picked up a 3d display. Got it home, set it up, fooled around with it for a few seconds, decided to update the playstation, and turned it off. Went to turn it back on and the light blinked blue....then green....then red. No display. I warned him it was a piece of crap, but even I'm surprised it failed after only being used for five minutes.


LOL.. jesus really? Thats just.. wow.. Was it maybe giving no display because the PS3 was off after the update? That thing sounds DOA.

BTW is your avatar Pirotess? I havent seen Lodoss War in ages. I should dig up my old DVD's

The backlight solution is YMMV. Didn't work for me. I still get occasional black screens for 2 or 3 seconds here or there.

The monitor will auto-off completely if there is no input detected for several seconds, so maybe that's what happened to that other guy.

For those people that bought the display, if you are interested in increasing your warranty, SquareTrade has a deal for 40% off: http://www.squaretrade.com/holidayrush

However, you do have to "Like" them on Facebook and enter an e-mail address, so it may or may not be worth it for you.

That game is a blast to play through. I'll have to test out the 3D option when I receive my unit.

Took a gamble on ordering the 3D display without enough time to think through (even though I've always wanted it). Non-silver RZ with the first order 11/22 having a UPS M label created and shipped email - item hasn't actually been accepted at UPS though. Don't know when I'll get it.

Second one popped up just as unexpectedly the next day while browsing. Panic ordered since it seemed like a better/cheaper way to get a second pair of the active 3D glasses rather than pay $20. It'll serve as a backup display in light of all the failure horror stories. This one is in "preparing order" stage with ships in 5-7 days along with the sharp shooter.

Not feeling good about the lack of an outer shipping box, or the pointless polybag. As if these didn't die easily enough.

Probably shouldn't have spent $ on it. 200 bucks out and it could have gone towards a bigger and more reliable 3D tv for everyday use. Damn internet frenzy.

Well, I ordered mine when it came back in stock Thursday night. Order was being fulfilled 0-1 days... now at 5-7 days. Waiting for the cancellation now. Oh well, not like I needed it, I'll save the $107 and now it can't break on me. Win/Win?

To anyone searching for 3D compatible games, here's a helpful resource:

3D Compatible Games

Personally, I only have 7 listed, and of those, only tried one with 3d - Sonic Generations. It was pretty neat, actually. Less "pop out" and more of a depth/spatial perception type thing. Only played through the first stage, though, so my opinion means little. From what I've read, Gran Turismo and Motorstorm Apocalypse are the kings of the 3d throne. Stardust HD seems to get high marks, too. Oh, and strangely, most of the Sony HD collections have 3D.

As far as the device itself, I haven't had any issues yet (picked it up on BF). With the exception of Apple, I still think Sony's industrial design is unrivaled. This thing is just smexxy. I got BB's extended warranty, so if it breaks...oh well, but I certainly hope it doesn't. Don't know what they were thinking originally charging $499 for it, but $100 is beyond a steal.

I was surprised the local bestbuy was still selling them. Saw a guy walk out with 3 of the tvs about an hour ago. Went ahead and picked one up for myself. See if it works or not.

Along with my 3d tv I went to Walmart and picked up dead island. It was the goty edition and rang $30. I showed the cashier the add that said $10 for it. We both didn't realize that it was only $10 for the regular one. She changed the price. My friend got one too and they charged him $30 ( the correct price) and they wouldn't change it. He told them that they changed it for me. And they told him well be got lucky lol.
