I heard a while back that Planar was really good quality, don't know if that still applies though.

Don't you guys think that 3d gaming is a little bit slow in going mainstream ? It has HUGE potential in games yet you see more spam about 3d TV's than 3d games.

I don't like the idea of 3D glasses too. I heard somewhere that nintendo has portable game console with 3D that doesn't require glasses. If only this technology could come to monitors faster...

These monitors should INCLUDE the infrared glasses controller, and a webcam, and a mic, to reduce the USB, cable, desk and dongle clutter.

"3D" needs a proper branding and minimum specs, just like Windows logo stickers etc.

Otherwise they are nothing more than 120Hz TFTs and who knows the persistence/shadowing quality

The Nintendo 3DS screen outputs very clear the 3D image without glasses. But so far it seems that is verry difficult to implement that tech to bigger res screens. That could change in the near future. And I think a 3D logo sticker should be permitted only to those types of screend, not just to any 120hz screens. ;)
