Good 3d monitor,
This review is from: LG D2342P-PN 23 inch Widescreen 3D LED Monitor (Accessory)
I've had this monitor about a month now and I am very pleased with it. The 3d is excellent especially when gaming on 3d and as far as I am aware it's the only 3d monitor you can use with a PS3 because it is passive - other monitors require a 3d kit for your pc. I thought the brightness was a bit high and the colours washed out when I first switched it on but have adjusted them to my preference without too much hassle. The lack of speakers was a but dissapointing but there is an audio out jackto plug some speakers into so it wasnt a problem and I'm given to understand that most pc monitors with speakers have pretty poor quality sound anyway. The buttons can be a bit slow to respond and the menu could be a lot better especially for the 3d modes, after you set a 3d mode the menu dissapears and you have to access it again to adjust any other settings or choose another mode.
As I've already said the 3d mode was really good when gaming, in fact I prefer it to my panny 50vt20, as you sit closer it's a lot more immersive and you dont need to draw the curtains and adjust the settings like you do with my active tv which was good. For films the 3d wasnt as good - the sense of depth wasnt as great as my tv but my tv is a 50" and this is a lot smaller, I still would be happy to watch a movie on it. 2d - 3d conversion is avialble but not really worth it.
If you are looking for a cheap 3d monitor for console gaming and the odd movie then it's a really good purchase. The 2d picture needs some tweaking imo.

Sorry only just saw this. It's on one of the menu buttons at the bottom but it only works with the hdmi or dvi inputs not the VGA.
