Outstanding 3D 23" Widescreen LED MonitorPosted .
Product/Service Details The AOC e2352Phz is a 23 inch diagonal widescreen LED display that provides very rich video images in 16.7 million colors and can be used as a 2D/3D computer, game or TV Monitor. I noticed that when I connected the monitor to my DirecTV HR24, it detected 3D programs and automatically switched from 2D to 3D mode. The same thing occurred when I connected a 3D Blu-Ray device to the monitor. The picture quality was outstanding. The HDMI connection provides a full 1080P resolution. The monitor included two polarized glasses similar to the type used in movie theatres. Even though the monitor uses flicker-free FPR passive 3D technology, I appreciated the impressive depth of field and image details. I found it hard to view some night time scenes because the 20,000,000 to 1 ultra-high dynamic definition contrast ratio made the dark background very dark. To use this monitor on a MAC or PC, I recommend using an HDMI connection with the proprietary TriDef 3D software. This combination works with most graphic cards to produce outstanding 3D images. Product Strengths • 23 inch Widescreen LED • Includes two lightweight polarized glasses that can be used with any monitor or TV that uses FPR passive 3D technology • 16.7 Million colors • 1920 by 1080 resolution • 20,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio • 250 cd/m2 brightness • VESA mountable or tilt able base stand • Energy Star Compliant with timeout feature • Ultra slim design • Includes VGA cable • Built in Speakers • 7 pounds Product Weaknesses • No clip on glasses • No DVI cable • No HDMI 1.4 cable • No Composite connection • No Component connection • No S Video connection • 60 Hz refresh rate • 5 Ms response rate • +/- 5 degree vertical adjustment limitation • Monitor adjustments on the bottom are tricky to adjustI would recommend this to a friend

Good display with some minor drawbacksPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
Pros: Compared to my other 3D display (a DLP with active shutter glasses), viewing 3D content on this display is actually very pleasant. The image through the passive glasses is stable, and comfortable to look at, unlike the 60Hz flicker from my active shutter glasses, which tends to dazzle my eyes, and cause headaches. Also, unlike most active shutter glasses I've worn, which are bulky and pinch my head, causing pain after several hours, these glasses are light, and fit comfortably. Because there are no electronics in the glasses, they are also inexpensive to replace, and in a pinch, you can even use the cheap polarized ones from the movie theater. Cons: 2D: The polarizing mask over every other row of pixels is faintly visible in 2D mode, causing a very subtle effect similar to an interlaced CRT, though not nearly as bad. Still, I would not recommend purchasing this display if you only intended to use it in 2D mode. 3D: The polarizing filters in FPR displays, by design, send every odd row of pixels to your left eye, and every even row to your right eye, effectively blacking out half of your vertical resolution. Some claim that the information is still there, in that 540p plus 540p adds up to 1080p, but the effect is noticeable. I personally feel that the benefits of passive FPR displays outweigh the cons versus active shutter glasses, but it is by no means perfect. Other thoughts: If you intend to use this display for PC gaming in 3D: Use a DVI connection to the monitor, not HDMI, and in the bundled TriDef 3D software, open the TriDef 3D control panel and enable “Line Interlaced (1920x1080)” mode. It is listed under “Manufacturer: (standard display types)”. The reason for this is that frame packed 3D over HDMI 1.4a at 1080p resolution is limited to 24 frames per second. This is meant for movies, and is far too low of a framerate for comfortable gaming. Selecting line interlaced mode will allow you to run at the monitor's native resolution, and still achieve 60 frames per second.

Do some research firstPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
I wasn't really sure what to expect from 3D gaming on the PC. I have seen a few movies at the theaters and it was awesome, thing popping out of the screen, sometimes feeling like you are really there... not the case with this monitor. And before I start the actual review, I want to state some things you NEED to know before you even consider purchasing a 3D monitor. People have a lot of misconceptions about 3D gaming with PC's. First of all, 3D gaming cuts your framerates in half due to your GPU displaying 2 images instead of one. So lets say you play WoW (which looks horrible in 3D compared to other games) and you get 70 FPS, when you play it in 3D, it will drop to about 35 FPS +/-. so know that. This is a 60Hz monitor, which means anything above 60FPS is wasted FPS, which means the maximum FPS you can play at is 30 in 3D mode. I noticed a lot of screen tearing when playing in 3D, so much so I had to turn on V-sync in most of my games, which drop FPS to 24, which in turn makes gameplay very unpleasant. I will blame 50% of the issues on my GPU which isnt the best, read "NOTE" at bottom. When I received this monitor it had a dead pixel in the bottom middle of the screen, which isn't that bothersome in brighter images, but in dark/black images it sticks out like a sore thumb. Also there is horrible ghosting of the second image behind the primary, so you do the the full image, but you also see the second image, kind of faint but very noticable, you can fix some of the ghosting by changing the angle of your monitor, or the way you sit, but move slightly and its back. The overall design of the monitor is sleek but very very flimsy, to adjust the angle (up/down) it is very stiff and I have to hold the base and put some muscle behind it. The problem with it is, the screen is flimsy, feels like its just going to break in half when adjusting. Oh, and the speakers are nice, but make sure your room with your PC in it is extremely silent or you will have to use headphones. The 3D glasses are very cheap and flimsy and the lenses attract finger prints worse than flies to poo (lol). And in turn are VERY difficult to clean without some cleaner. However, despite the negatives, this monitor is a decent bang for the buck. It has a decent depth field, and it does play 3D.. just not great.If you have never experienced 3D gaming before you will be pleased but then you may wonder what you may have missed by not getting the slightly more expensive one. NOTE: Make sure your video card can handle high FPS, I wouldnt recommend a card less than the GTX560 / Radeon 5950. NOTE: I have the Radeon 6870 2GB and it is a decent card for gaming, I can play most games on high-ultra with low AA/AF at a 1920x1080 resolution. However it isnt the best card for 3D, if you have the money I would strongly suggest the GTX 670 FTW.
