Nice to see more 24" 120hz monitors, now for 26"+ 120hz at 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 :laugh:

Not that i really want 3d, i just want 120hz monitors for gaming even if at higher res it would be hard for many cards to push the frame rate that high, i have high hopes for the future... or i'm just delusional.

Why would they bother putting speakers in a monitor like this? Surely most people grabbing these will have their own audio set up too XD

Purty looking screen mind you.

I think i need more coffee, i didn't even notice the bit about the speakers. i have to agree pretty much anyone looking for a monitor like this would have their own speaker set up and if they didn't then they should be looking for one and not wanting tiny little 2w (proberley terrible sounding) built in ones.

And your right, it does look very nice.

I thought it best to point out that in a cost-saving measure the glasses needed for 3D are WIRED into the monitor. This also means that you can only ever have 1 pair connected to the monitor for 3D and you're limited in how far away you can sit (i guess with a 24" monitor you wouldn't want to sit too far back anyway).

That kind of sucks, with the choice between this viewsonic monitor for use with amd and the 22" viewsonic VX2268WM and a pair of nvidia glasses and transmitter (£330) i would happly loose the 2" for the lack of wires.

Except the VX2268WM is 1680x1050, not 1920x1080...

But you can get similar 3D Vision approved displays from Asus and Acer (with the Asus one being pretty damn nice) with the 3D Vision glasses for not much more.

:laugh: that's it, i'm going to get another coffee as im missing everything today.

Really nvidia has much better options as there is many 120hz monitors bundled with the glasses and transmitter pack, really amd needs their own pack like it.

Wired doesn't mean wired to the monitor unless I'm missing something, could be usb or what have you.

Just means no battery changes.

Lack of charging is a good thing and oen of the major reasons why i choose wired over wireless but also to me though it means either a thin cable that with enough use will easly damage the internal wires or a thicker one that takes longer to damage but is more of a pain in the ass to have running to your face.

My last pair of headphones, desk standing mic, 2 mice and keyboard were all replaced due to the wire breaking inside right at the point the wire went into them from being flexed so much a couple of those things i rewired but i suck at soldering so they needed to be fied a couple more times before i replaced them. If the glasses are wiered there would have to a pretty easy way to get a replacement for an ok price.

well AMD supported 3d before now, but it was through 3rd party monitors and glasses and the main one was from iz3d, but i'm sure it was a polarised screen and passive glasses not active like with nvidia.
I would assume that with the 6xxx cards there will be companys releasing active 3d setups that work well with AMD.

:laugh: yea it's an issue only i normally run into, it's because i don't use my mouse or keyboard on my desk and oddly enough neither with my desk standing mic's.
I use my mouse and keyboard on my lap with a very thin sheet of fiber board as a giant (26" by 20") mouse pad and to support for the keyboard and i often place the mic on my numpad while gaming, i know a headset would solve the mic problem but i have always prefered a seperate mic.

IMO, passive polarised 3D FTW. No messing with powered glasses, lighter glasses and you can buy them more cheaply.

Of course no glasses will be the best solution as you will not have the dimming effect.

So far i'm yet to try either passive polarised or active shutter 3d, the last 3d movie i saw used the 2 different coloured lenses :laugh: i assume either beats the old style glasses?
