Very good 2D, but 3D is like looking through a dense window screen.

Summary: First, I bought this from Amazon used, and it came in the original box with a big rip in the side. The box was pretty beat up. That said, the monitor did work perfectly. As a 2D monitor, it compares well with others I've seen. There is no 3D interference pattern in 2D.You would not know it's a 3D monitor until 3D is turned on. Once 3D is on, though, the interlaced pattern is awful, especially for still 3D photos like MPO files.
Summary: This Monitor is the best dang monitor I have ever owned and I have had quite a few over the last 31 years! I purchased a cheap NVIDIA 3D Graphics card ($89) with 4Gigs of video memory. The 3d effect is awesome! The video card is a GEFORCE GT630 inno3D. The 3D is every bit as good as in the theaters (To Me). My wife sees double images, just as if she didn't have glasses on, weird. The monitor has a whopping 80 million to 1 (80,000,000:1) contrast ratio. Whites are bright.
Summary: I just got this monitor had words can not describe how disappointing it is. The colors are good and all that. But there an very noticeable pixel grid over the entire monitor. I thought I might have a problem but some other reviews also say the same thing. I don't care how good the colors are I see millions of little boxes all over the screen. Imagine looking through a very thin window screen placed over the entire length of the monitor and you'll get the idea.
Great 27" Moniter that comes with a cool 3D option

Summary: I decided to buy this monitor because it was at the same price point as many similar models but came with the 3D option, and I'm really happy I ended up getting it. If you're not a fan of 3D this is still a great monitor; great contrast, awesome colors, and it has incredibly sharp text. That being said the 3D is a great feature, its not perfect and it does have some crosstalk in certain situations but for the price its absolutely amazing.
Summary: It's a great 2D IPS 27" panel. Nice picture, good brightness and lots of connectivity options. 2x HDMI, 1 x DVI etc. The 3D works pretty well, but is not something I could do for too long. I don't have eye strain issues at the movie theater with Real-D, but this wears on my eyes a little. (Makes them water). Might be the linear polarization as opposed to the circular Real-D, but not sure. The sound is pretty impressive too as far as built-in speakers go.
Summary: At first, I was worry about buying this monitor because of little and some bad reviews which I read around the web. I decide to go ahead and purchase the monitor and give it a try. Once I receive the monitor, I started to compare it to my Asus 27 Nvidia 3D monitor which is not IPS but is 120mhz. Once I turn it on and started watching movies and doing other things, I knew that those negative reviews were wrong. I am very happy with the monitor and highly recommend it.
great picture but the function buttons didn't work and had to exchange
13 August 2013
Summary: the function buttons were going crazy so it had to be replaced/exchanged and the exchanged monitor was just as great without the problems with the buttons. have to return the second monitor I received. THe screen was not as nice As I thought. My son just told me that the screen is scratched. I've never had a screen scratched before so I am sending it back for a refund and try a different monitor. I really thought Asus would be better....
