the old dell is showing signs of age after 5 years (my excuse anyway), and I was curious about 3d movies/gaming too. was not prepared to go back to the TN screens after many years of IPS superior panels. this, to my knowledge is amongst the first to combine 3d/IPS.
not only is this panel an IPS, 27" screen size and ultra-slim, but it is sold at an incredibly low price. the first example I received had a dodgy menu button and would have reduced the rating to a max of 4 stars, but for the fact that it was replaced by amazon and the first one picked up within 2 days of my complaint!! for that sort of service, I felt that it would be churlish of me to dock the feedback by one star especially as I am so pleased and amazed by the product. I notice that the price has now gone up by about £25; still a great bargain.
so, using the supplied clip-ons, I have now watched a number of 3d demos and movies and been 'blown away', as they say.
for me, however, the big bonus is the pc game; Skyrim, which I have recently purchased (two years late I know). this screen gives me a whole new perspective on gaming and I am rarely seen during the day 'cos I am 'busy'.....
I use the oem version; supplied, of powerdvd for the blueray disks/3d files that I watch and it works fine. for gamers I should add that the software to use is 'tridef 3d ignition'. this is a free, downloadable application and does the business. as far as I recall, the automatic 2d setting is use for the latter (default). for other stuff, use whichever you need. I have so far watched sbs; t/d and auto 2d/3d.
highly recommended product; buy it!
