Hi all i live in Australia and I currently have the nvidia 3d vision with a viewsonic 120hz monitor but I also had a zalmon 22" 3d monitor as well the funny thing is they both died on me.
my viewsonic edid died on it which is a 1 in a million glitch (edid is a chip that sends a signal to your computer telling it what your monitor can do eg name, id, refresh rate, resolution) that may be because of my gts8800 (it hates it) it still worked just no 3d and had to use vga (dvi is needed for 3d).
While I was waiting to get my viewsonic replaced (took 2 months they had to order stock) i bought a zalmon 22" 3d monitor which only lasted 9 days I had 5 dead pixels (got my money back tho), as others have said the monitor screen is many generation behind in tech and I find the screen to be of bad quality eg on a black screen has light in little blobs here and there around the screen.
that aside it did a good job I will say it is works with the most programs including youtube 3d player, nvidia 3d, ddd tridef and iz3d(didn't try iz3d nvidia and tridef were the best).
Its disadvantages were (1.) that SMALL TEXT IS UNREADABLE in 3d (and in the end why i decided to get my money back)
(2.) it is interlaced so half res but get use to it very quickly still small text is crap in 3d
(3.) very small viewing area think of a monitor box but smaller laying flat down (ya head has to always be at the right height you also cant be too far from the monitor a max of about 3 arm lengths ) so if ya want to have people watch it with you ya have to sit in a tight triangle eg first 3 bowling pins. so not very comfortable.
(4.)5ms so for fast game can be quite bad but in most cases ok.
(5.)ready to go and do 3d out of the box and includes it own player and software as well as recommending other software .
advantages (1.) supports many third party software including tridef which is awesome cost $50 tho but convert 2d videos to 3d in realtime and works with a lot of unsupported 3d games (can even make 2d games 3d) was so fun watching everything in 3d (i miss that now coz nvidia 3d vision is not supported (shutter glasses) but might be soon because of new driver features that are coming http://3dvision-blog.com/what-new-features-is-nvidia-preparing-for-the-3d-vision-owners/
(2.)can do 3d in windows dose not require supported full screen apps (eg youtube in browser and tridef windowed and some games)
(3.) less straining on the eye then nvidia shutter glasses (tho ya get use to it also ya should be having a short brake if so which is what ya meant to do)
viewsonic vx2268wm 120hz 22" 3d monitor
advantages (1.) high quality screen with high contrast and brightness
(2.)full resolution and text crystal clear
(3.)2ms and very good overall a lot of reviews have marked this as an very very good 2d monitor
(4.)can control the depth with the wheel on the back of the shutter control box of the nvidia 3d shutter glasses
(5.) VERY VERY LARGE VIEWING ANGLE mostly the same and any other 2d display 160 degrees also near any distance so eg i watch moves from the other side of the my room on my bed (also one of the reason i kept it).
(6.)with a refresh rate of 120 is great when using 2d makes everything smooth (if ya have fast enough hardware)
disadvantages (1.) dose not suppport anything but nvidia 3d vision at the moment more support may come with future diver update
(2.)needs to be full resolution (1680x1050) screen app aka game or supported full screen shutter glasses supported programs but will be fixed with this future update http://3dvision-blog.com/what-new-features-is-nvidia-preparing-for-the-3d-vision-owners/
(3.) monitor position not very adjustable, only the tilt no height adjustment.
(4.) there is some flicker but very rare and overall 1 flick in a split second so not that bad its to do with room lighting can be fixed tho
(5.) this is the only major problem with the viewsonic and nvidia 3d vision that could all be to do with my gts8800 (which i think it is) is the transition from 2d and 3d can be very buggy at times along with the 3d player from nvidia which is poop really poop (no in 3d ui so to do and action apart from pause play and stop ya have to exit 3d to the windowed mode to skip and stuff) but dose the job and interfaces with all codecs and has nearly all view type media formats
(6.) dose not support tridef yet so not awesome 2d to 3d realtime conversion
but there is the 3Dfier Realtime 2D to 3D Conversion Directshow Filter http://3dfier.blogspot.com/
which is ok some say it dose more accurate result but i find it stutters (might be my hardware again) and dose not come out of the screen like tridef so not very noticeable but is there and still improves the viewing experience.
(7.)only 120hz refresh rate at 1680x1080 but that is native resolution and should really only be used at that resolution.
I got the zalmon for $480aud and the viewsonic for $420 plus $270 for the nvidia 3d vision kit (shutter glasses + control box).
overall price aside they were both great with the viewsonic being an overall high quality monitor I just wish the viewsonic and nvidia 3d vision had more support for third party programs which will come in time. and as others have said wait if ya can i rushed and suffered there is no standered yet and i really want a full resolution polarized monitor with a decent viewing angle but they just are not out yet(unless use projectors but $$$$).
let me know if there is anything else any of you would like to know and please tell me of any other programs that work with nvidia 3d vision
ps if real can convert normal lcd to 3d with micro film that goes over the tv check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFIeQNseEsI
i wish i could find more about it
