Summary: this is Passive 3D. If you are looking for real 3D monitor. this isn't right monitor for you. monitor itself has built in 3D button but quality isn't that great. just want to mention that 3D takes time to get use to your eyes. in the beginning you will get headache. for 2D performance, it looks great. I have no complain here. it does say IPS display but it's kinda half TN and half IPS I would say.
