I bought this monitor this week and am in the process of sending it back to the retailer. The reason? Everything worked fine on it except, yes you've guessed it, the one thing I wanted it for...3D Blu-ray playback. The 3D kicked in and looked beautiful but as soon as the characters started to move the screen displayed a horrible juddering, shimmering, blurriness....whatever you want to call it...it was horrible and unwatchable. Now, I believe that I have a faulty monitor, hence the return.
I tested my Blu-ray player on a similar version to this....the DM2350D (exactly the same specs but has Freeview and Speakers) the 3D Blu-ray movie played perfectly and looked beautiful. I almost bought that 3D monitor on the spot except that I have the small matter of getting a refund first. Also, there are the January sales around the corner so i might wait a few weeks.http://m.lg.com/uk/it-products/monitors ... M2350D.jsp
Now if the 3D image on a properly working D2342P looks as good as the DM235OD, I would totally recommend it. I just haven't seen one of these working yet. The only difference is that the contrast ratio is 5000000:1 instead of 7000000;1. but would our eyes notice that? I don't know. I am though, seriously thinking of buying the DM2350D instead because I know it works with my player and looks stunning.
With regards FPR and half resolution I didn't notice any problems. I must have one of those brains that fuses the 540p into a complete 1080p whole. All I know is that it's a great price to be able to get passive 3d on a monitor that supports 3D Blu-ray movies. After all, we've only been waiting 2 years for these to become affordable.
Oh I forgot. This monitor works with the RealD cinema glasses too. I have tested them and the 3D works fine..not quite as good as the original glasses (maybe there's a little bit more ghosting) but they work and are cheap to buy.
