Not good for Nvidia 3D, not even close!,
I got this Samsung SM2233RZ from another retailer. and the Nvidia 3D glasses from Amazon.
Took a while to set up, but when it was done, the Nvidia demo screen shots launched to prove the 3D vision was working!
Right away I noticed an issue. I could see faint outlines where there was high amounts of contrast between items on the screen.
I did some digging to see how to resolve this, and guess what? There is no way to get rid of it unless you spend a lot more money on a better screen!
Look for for the terms "Crosstalk" and "Ghosting" It's REALLY common!
Samsung claim this will work as all you need is a 120mhz screen. THIS IS NOT ALL YOU SHOULD CONSIDER!!!
A higher refresh rate means more frames are being drawn to the screen per second. As such, you need a monitor that also has a low Response Time (The time it takes a pixel to physically change state). For a 120Hz LCD, anything above 2ms is too slow for this tech. Most 3d monitors still use 5ms, which simply isn't fast enough.
Unless you spend half a ton on an Alienware 3D screen (or whatever is out when you read this) your going to get ghosting.
As I right this, people are waiting for the BenQ XL2410T to come out, and this is about the same price range, but has a 2ms response time. But that's yet to be proven.
It's a shame as this tech is way over due, and we still have a way to go!
Anyway, I am returning this with much regret.
I'm sure in a few years things will move on and we will FINALLY get the 3D we desire.
