An overall okay monitor.

D. Medina "D. Medina", Amazon

  • Summary: This is one of the lower end monitors. I get a lot of errors when trying to run games in 3D, so I haven't really used the 3D capabilities on this monitor. As a standard monitor, it's pretty good. But, as I said before, it's not a great 3D monitor.

Disappointing to say the least.

  • Summary: Where to start? Maybe the shipping. Electronics expo charged $20 in shipping and it was supposed to take 3-5 days. It said shipped for 3 days but did not have a location. The arrival scan for UPS was a full 3 days later, so it took 3 days to get from the warehouse to the UPS office in New Jersey? No updates for a week, then it was finally delivered. The tri-def software was a pain and seems a bit buggy.

does what it is supposed to, however lack of content hurts this one

EATENalive, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this based on the price and that it uses passive glasses, for 3d it does what it is supposed to although it was a bit weird getting the stand to support the screen at a suitable angle (it uses some kind of flexible metal or something that requires some pressure that i was nervous to apply) it is sort of lack luster for standard 2d operations, and has a hard time with up-scaling content that isn't 1080p.

Good if you don't mind ghosting/tinkering

Auryn Toola, Amazon

  • Summary: I spent about 2 weeks trying to get ghosting down and software functioning correctly for this monitor before deciding to return it; I bought a second one simply to make sure it wasn't a defective unit. There is a very specific viewing angle to see 'correct' 3D, but even then there is ghosting (which no amount of changing settings could get rid of).

Works ok and one of the cheapest 3D monitor, bad for photography

  • Summary: Update: After a using this for a longer time. I noticed the color temperature changes from the top to the both and as you turn your head. If you have a white background it looks bluer a the top and a little redder at the bottom. If you change angle of the view it change from neutral white to red. While not a big enough deal that I didn't returned it. Also 2d is not as good as my work lcd or my laptop lcd.

Acceptable 3D experence with disappoingting 2D quality.

Hu Ling, Amazon
12 July 2011
  • Summary: I had a really bad experience with the first one I have got, it has defects displaying 3D images with the included DVI cable. The replacement from Amazon is working properly now. Generally, the 3D quality is OK, the biggest problem is ghosting depending on the actual image and colors. It seems that there is always 5-10% area showing some degree of ghosting effect(even with LG's own 3D samples) no matter how optimal view position and angle you have adjusted.

Not for 3D from software

remskin, Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: Purchased to use with a PC which requires a 3D screen for software packages requiring 3D output, previously purchased Samsung but they are no longer available. This will not do what you require.

Horizontal Grid Visible all the time!

Jonesey "Jonesey", Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I've owned this monitor for about 3 months and I am generally pleased with it - bright, colourful and easy to use. One BIG downside which nobody else has mentioned is that at normally viewing distance (say 18 inches to 2ft away), you can clearly see a horizontal grid of dark lines covering the entire screen. I suspect that it is something to do with the 3D technology.

User Review

  • Summary: Well, for the brief moments that I could see the 3D stereoscopic view in Cinema 4D R13 in the viewport, it was great.. And when I say brief, I mean every intermittent second or so, between equally lengthen periods of static. Apparently this is a huge undressed problem to do with the Thunderbolt port on Macs (in my case, a rather expensive 17" Macbook pro, purchased in early 2012). Happy with the monitor, but very miffed about the incompatibility.
  • Pros: 3D works great
  • Cons: Apple's Thunderbolt port doesn't like it at all

Great for PC owners, not so much for Mac

Michaelvk, Amazon

  • Summary: If you own a thunderbolt display port equipped mac, don't even bother. I bought this to view stereoscopic images in my 3D software, so I wouldn't have to wear migraine inducing anaglyphe red/blue glasses. And for the brief interludes between thunderbolt port incompatibility induced static (which varied in intensity depending on resolution and refresh rate, but never went away), it looked very good.
