Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The 3D Display Specifically Designed for Gamers

The PlayStation 3D display is essential equipment for players who are in search of serious 3D gaming experiences. The display is slim with a screen size of 24", and features full 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080). Its built-in Edge LED technology offers brilliant contrast, while a 240 Hz refresh rate ensures ultra-smooth play. It also has built-in speakers and a subwoofer to enhance the audio.

In addition, it can be connected to cable TV boxes, a PC or any other compatible device via the display's two HDMI ports or its single component HD port. Both of these input types are conveniently located at the side of the display.

The pair of PlayStation 3D glasses included with the display offer best-in-class Active shutter 3D quality and built-in USB rechargeable batteries. PlayStation 3D glasses are optimized to sync seamlessly with the PlayStation 3D display, but their universal design makes them compatible with a variety of Active Shutter 3D displays.* Active Shutter 3D technology offers superior image quality over competing Passive 3D technologies by means of the differing processes they execute. Both technologies create the illusion of depth by slightly altering what users' eyes are exposed to. Passive 3D glasses block different kinds of emitted light from reaching each eye. The result is a 3D effect, but one in which certain light data has been omitted. In some cases this can equate to up to half of the available lines of resolution, meaning that this type of 3D effect can not reach the level of true 1080p HD. Active 3D on the other hand does not omit light sources from the spectrum, instead producing its 3D effect through a subtle dimming process of the individual lenses. PlayStation 3D glasses manage this effect seamlessly through their infrared connectivity. The result is a superior 3D effect, at full HD quality. Infrared connections between glasses and other components, as well as other 3D processes are kept constant through the glasses 30-hour rechargeable battery life.

SimulView Technology Improves the 2-player Gaming Experience

Fans of co-op and competitive gaming modes are intimately familiar with local split-screen multiplayer functionality, which literally splits the visible display area of a single TV used in offline play to show the differing actions of individual players participating in the same game, at the same physical location. As advantageous as this is for group play, the quality of even the sharpest of HD television displays is compromised by the halving of the viewable area. SimulView Technology does away with this issue by enabling two players in a supported game to see their actions in-game displayed as full-screen projections** (the full requirement for the effect are: a PlayStation 3D Display, 2 pairs of PlayStation 3D Glasses, a PS3 system, a PS3 game that supports SimulView, and two players). Built on the Active 3D glasses technology and specially enhanced for gaming, SimulView technology brings players deeper in the game than ever before while still sharing the experience with a friend. Games supporting SimulView technology include MotorStorm Apocalypse, Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5, Super Stardust HD, with more titles in development and coming soon.

this item it amazing, fast delivery and in perfect condition, the 3d monitor is out of this world, makes your games feel as if you are in the action. This monitor will play 2d and 3d both are perfect and deal with two pairs of glasses is bargain ad £70 alone for one pair of glasses, in-built battery amazing 30min = 30hrs of constant use. Films in 3d great and 3d is crazy feeling like you are part of film. No issues as yet with product was a bit sceptical buying item with other reviews but glad I made the purchase. Monitor + two pairs of 3d glasses+ 3d hdmi cable + 2 games, expensive but you get what you pay for..overall amazing 3d experience.

I meant to updated this soon after leaving this review. I was able to adjust the clear type of font/pixels by simply lowing sharpness setting to almost nothing, most text is clear except when it appears too smooth when bold text is shown on some websites and PDFs. I still am not happy with the view angle of the screen, it is a downgrade in that regard to my old 19" monitor. Unless you are dead on straight in front of the screen you will see blurring as if moisture or water is on the screen not noticeable while viewing moving imagery, video gaming (PS3 or PC) but awful for when reading text. I am leaving my star rating as is though! Wortht he buy, you decide if you want to have that as a comprmise and if prices do not drop import from USA at lower price to save at least 1/3 price after paying VAT/import duty! YES everything we pay for in the UK is marked up, for whatever excuses companies come up with, when we can import them cheaper even after paying EU taxes.

The Playstation monitor is good but not great. I didn't expect superb quality sound speakers from a flat panel like this so this part was not surprising, what was however surprising is the screen. It doesn't show good quality as my previous monitor, clear type text is awful even after tuning it numerous times I see no improvement on best setting. This means even clearest of text fonts like Helvetica are not crisp and clean, but pixels are rough on text and this is just something I am not used to. The other annoying thing with this is that the screen appears like a mobile device would after several hours of use without cleaning, sweaty, clammy moist hands would cause, since this is not a touch screen you would not expect this brand new out the box after only turning it on.

The display 2 and 3D is simply amazing. Sound quality is like a swarm of bees buzzing in a tin can strapped to the side of the picture; even if you plug in headphones you hear a constant loud hiss of white noise through the 'phones. This means that if you want to enjoy the sound from the game you need to buy the Sony virtual surround sound headphones that connect directly to the PS3 via their own special connection. You simply could not watch movies on this display without the additional Sony headphones. Sony Wireless Stereo Headset (PS3)

Worst thing of all is that less than 2 months after buying it the display simply stopped working (working fine in the morning, no picture in the afternoon or ever again). Looking online is it clear that these displays are fundamentally flawed in some way (many hundreds of people all saying the same thing, no picture, little flashing red light, throw it away) but NOTHING from Sony.

Shame, I really loved it right up to the point it stopped working.

I've got one last week, knowing i would only use it on top of my desk, as an external monitor for my laptop (which now remains closed), sitting next to my ps3. For this used it's perfect, i think it's actually marketed this way, and that becomes quite obvious when you see sony's promotional video.


Picture quality is very very good. Compares well to a macbook pro's screen, although viewing angles are not very good, as it seems to get darker when you move from side to side, or sit a bit closer to it.

Glare is definitely an issue during the daytime. It's just about okay most of the time when the picture is bright (and on a computer, it usually the case) but when playing games, it get's quite annoying on darker scenes, like shady indoors or night time. I mean it's a real issue... i get that the glossy display makes the colors richer and blacks deeper, but i recon that the cons outweigh the pros. That being said, when you put the 3d glasses on this effect is substantially less annoying, because the shade of they're lenses somewhat reduces reflexions on the screen but at the same time the whole image is darker as well...

3D is good, although not as immersive as i have seen on larger screens, for obvious reasons. It does enhance gaming substantially, and you do miss it when you turn it off. You should really try it out to see for yourself on this one. Again, much better at close distances (3-5ft)


Well i was used to my 19" LG Flatron monitor and this just feels humongous in the same spot. But, as it feels big on the desk, it feels tiny on a living room wall, plus, with no remote included, it would be nothing but hassle there.

Sound quality:

Depth is not so good.
