Have cards capable, and even a monitor for it, but I am not paying $150 extra just to get a headache 30 mins into a movie or a gaming session.

I voted Yes I have Nvidia 3D products and use it for gaming.

It can make me go a bit crosseyed, but it's ok when the image is moving and I really like the 3D effect. It's interesting how if you play it for a while, the effect sort of melts away and it just looks natural.

That's a shame. Do you know why it does this? Does it cause instant eye strain or is it the alternating shuttering of the glasses that causes it?

I wear glasses normally, but I also have contacts, I can't wear my glasses with the 3D glasses, with or without contacts I get horrible headaches. I can only guess it's eye strain, all I know is it hurts me eyes and gives me headaches, I once did it for nearly 5 hours straight thinking my eyes would acclimate . . . not so much .. . I ended up with a headache that lasted for several hours.

I have 3d vision kit and a supported monitor.. I use it for 3d gaming sometimes.. but those graphical glitches really are a turn off.. I end up using 120hz non 3d instead.

Voted for the bottom two options, was hoping this poll would be public so people knew I liked to bitch. But it doesn't show who voted for what, so I am going to bitch about that so people know my stance.

Wouldn't mind finding someone with an AMD setup to see how good/borked it is.

Never heard of "3D products" other than gaming graphic cards and games! Quake1 is 3D, Voodoo cards were true 3D processors, right?

Ok! I live in a cave....

Or maybe is this whole fuzz about STEREOSCOPICS ? ;)

I voted no, although I've only experienced 3D movies. Reason being I can sometimes see the split image through my glasses so I am not completely immersed, granted the technology isn't perfect yet I am curious to see how a free glasses 3D monitor would do. On the plus side I do like 120hz and imo 120hz is simply stunning.

I'd definitely invest in a 120hz monitor and prices are going down quite fast, so hopefully I'll be able to get a 27-30 inch sized sometime soon.

No, I don't have any 3D capable system neither monitor, video card, or glasses.

I don't notice any difference between 3D and normal when I tested in shopping centers and movies. I think it's because my binocular vision is bad (strabismus).

I'd like to play Battlefield in 3D but I haven't seen any presentation station that would allow me to test it. I enjoy 3D IMAX movies very much and if this is a similar experience its worth the cash.

I think it's the alternate flickering on each eye that does it. If each eye was getting 100Hz instead of 60Hz, you might find that the problem would go away.

You might also find that it's more comfortable with the room lights turned off, in case there's a clash there (beat frequency).

I own a 240hz tv, so perhpas I will try the 3d gaming on that, but I have tried with lights on and off and it makes no difference.
