Yeah I passed up on those in the past waiting for a $30 deal like on BF. Guess I need to jump on the next $35 ebay deal I find.


Can you do PC 3D gaming on the Sony Display?


With an NVIDIA card and the correct drivers, you can. I've been doing it on and off for the last few months. 3D on the PS3 is much nicer than the effect that I've seen with my PC.

I paid $170 for my 3d display, I totally regret it.


I know how you feel.. it was 499, then drop to 299.. and I got mine for 199.
I thought it was a good deal then.

Later, BB reduced another $30 to $169.. now, it's going to be $99.

Maybe, next year BFS if they still have this in stock, it will be $49.

I think Sony not making this anymore, that's why they're dumping it out.

Oh WOW!:hot: Just looked it up! Good deal for both of you!

About the display....1 time I had to turn it on 3 times before it would stay on. The 3D on it is good, but I didn't get around to figuring out how to make it not come on automatically. I'm used to my TV asking me if I want to play/watch in 3D. The 3D on the display was automatic. Not cool holding up an entire team, while I run into my living room for the glasses, when just hoping into an online game of Ratchet & Clank All 4 One!:-#

If you decide on it, be sure to get their warranty! Also, I saw a thread on SD about 40% off SquareTrade warranties.

I want a 40" from Sears or Kmart. Gonna use the $100 in SYWR they gave me from the Sears $97 32" TV cancellation fiasco the other day to get a $100 + tax 40" TV for my bedroom! Well, to TRY and get 1 of those deals.


Can you link me to that Slickdeals link if it hasn't expired already? I want to get warranties on my new 39" Insignia HDTV that should be arriving tomorrow, an Xbox 360 that I'll be ordering from Newegg tomorrow, and my nephew's Nabi that he got for his birthday.

Never mind, found it. Gotta love Google!

Almost 0.

Only way you could, would be to print out the bestbuy.com version of it when it goes on sale (cut off the date of print on the bottom though) and try to PM it a couple days after black friday.

I would have to agree. I know the picture quality is much better than that 32" proscan HDTV...but my wife wants me to get the 32" instead of the Sony.

Question then is... Smaller display but better picture quality or larger TV and lower picture quality.


I used to sell Proscan when I worked at Sears and I have never seen a more poorly built TV. I'd say at least 50% of the ones we sold came back with some issue. Ended up the manager and I made a decision to stop carrying them in our store to avoid issues.

Damn, and I thought I got it for a great deal when I got the PS 3D display for $200 from the Sony Store when they had a limited-use $100 off coupon (it was $300 before coupon).

I saw a ton of these at Best Buy the other day for $179.99. I'm tempted to get another for $99 but we don't even use the one we have ;).


I don't own one, but I read that it has an extremely high failure rate after a very short period of time. If I owned one, I would definitely test it out for at least a few months to make sure it isn't one of those defective units. Apparently if you have a bad one, the only sure way to fix it is to send it in to Sony for repair (I believe you only have a one year manufacturer warranty). Otherwise, you may end up getting completely screwed.

Regarding the $99 Sony PS3 3D monitor..that's a good deal yes, but
there are couple of things, people should know if they indeed to use it either as a TV or PC monitor besides PS3 gaming

a) It DOES NOT have a TV Tuner - Inputs are: 2 HDMI or 1 Component input, 1 stereo and 1 head phone (ok for satellite or cablebox use but no ATSC cable or over-the-air tuner)

b) It is GLOSSY or GLARING, (not Matte finish), so make sure you have a dark room otherwise you can see a lot reflection especially movies with dark scenes.

c) No PC VGA (analog) or DVI input. So, PC must have HDMI or covert using DVI-HDMI or VGA-HDMI adapter or cable. Certain PC display adapter may not be able to display in clear 1920x1080 screen in crisp mode - it depends on your adapter.. the text could be fuzzy.

d) 3D glass - this is active shutter, must be charged up.. pretty expensive to replace - so be careful with them.

e) Yes, it is true 50/50 chance that they're defective (blank out, random shut off, color bleeding, etc after 1-2 weeks of normal use) - have to be replaced by Sony thru RMA. It's NO USE even with protection plan from Best Buy because they'll give another defective one to you out from the box. It won't fix the issue. Only the RMA ones will be fixed when you return it.

f) No remote included, the buttons are difficult to reach (facing the back).
You need to get the new PS3 bluetooth remote ($20-$25).

h) The audio is ok.. but kinda of soft in some movies.

Other than those above issues, I find the following nice things

1. It is a great monitor for PS3 gaming!
2. Beautiful 3D.. good for gaming and watching 3D movies
3. Great Simulview gaming (limited to some games) with a friend
4. Looks like a GIANT PSP box. Looks good in your room. :)

Not true. The universal remote provided by my cable company was able to be programmed to work on it just fine.

Skimmed the last few pages, didn't see this asked: Can you order these online for in store pickup on black friday? Or is that not allowed? Im not sitting in line but that xbox live card and a few games look pretty good. That TV doesn't sound too bad either. May use it to hook my old ps3 or 360 up to play some older games.

Anyone know if the sony tv has netflix or anything like that on it? And BTW.. im assuming the guy mentioning the problems with it is greatly exagerating about the 50% failure rate, right?

That doesn't mean anything. If it has wifi or ethernet hookup it could have a netflix app or something. Sounds like thats not the case though

It's a no frills 3d monitor. No built in apps software or anything.

Yes and so does sleeping dogs.

+1 for sleeping dogs being worth $25 if you want to play it now. I actually rented it and really liked it. I had very low expectations and was very pleasantly surprised. One of those rare games thats a lot better than you think it will be. Since i wound up beating it when i rented it, im personally waiting for a <$20 price to own it

Sony 3d tv seems ok for the $100, but i am concerned about the failure rate. I couldn't care less about 3d, but a gaming monitor sounds good

The playstion 3d display has a 240 hz panel and has motionflow 240 on at all times. A lot of high end SONY tech crammed in this thing is why it was $500 this time last year. The picture quality is EXCELLENT. Don't believe me. Get one for yourself and see. Great deal I'm in for one more.

Customer service is closed on Black Friday. They reopen for the weekend.

I think all online orders are for shipping only. I think the in-store pickup option is disabled during BF weekend.
