If first impressions are something to go through, this newly launched monitor is a top-notch winner.
Display port and HDMI:
The monitor is connected to my Nvidia 470 SOC video graphics card with a DVI-I to HDMI cable. The monitor provides an HDMI jack and a display port with a display port cable in the package. A variety of configurations can be achieved depending on the cable used and offers a variety of audio options and 2D, 3D and HD refresh rates. The HDMI offers good quality 3D at 60Hz, while the Display Port offers a higher level of 3D at 120Hz.
In the frame:
Monitor: 27-inch 120Hz 3D widescreen HD LED monitor
– 3D glasses with battery (not rechargeable)
– Display port cable,
– 14 volt power supply,
– Cable tie and mounting bracket
– Cleaning cloth: use only a cloth dampened with water. Do not use strong detergents or chemical cleaners.
Fast action 2 ms, 120 Hz:
Fast-moving 3D action displays well, even at 60Hz, the best I’ve seen to date with this 2ms, 120Hz capable monitor. Image results are equivalent to what you would expect from a plasma display .
Glossy black screen:
At purchase, I was unaware that the monitor had a glossy black screen and was a bit discouraged when I opened the box, but in my monitor location it works well and has easily earned my praise after only a few days of operation. Would you consider getting a shiny black screen again? Yes, but my first preference would always be the “matte finish”
This is the first time I have experienced this depth of black. I have read about blacks, heard about blacks, and now I have finally experienced them and am impressed. The blackest blacks allow for a much richer viewing experience with every frame.
Active 3D glasses:
The battery for the 3D glasses should last 6-12 months, maybe even longer depending on usage. The supplied battery is not rechargeable, but can be easily purchased and installed for just a few dollars. You can buy additional glasses, but the 27-inch design is better suited for a single-wearer. An additional pair costs around $ 120.00 AUD / USD and varies depending on where you get them.
The stand has a small but practical footprint, with small “Eight” white backlit control buttons embedded in a glossy black faceplate on the stand.
Eight control buttons offer a wide range of automatic and / or custom options. A dedicated 3D button, supports 2D, HD, Active 3D, Sequential, Side-by-Side, Top and Bottom formats, to name a few.
Energy saving, super slim design and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Total cost – Glasses included:
The recommended retail price is $ 599.00 USD / AUD if you can find one. These have only been on the market for a few months and have been almost completely sold out. Many online stores claim they have 2,3,5 or more in stock, however when you contact them to place an order like I did with 5 different stores, I quickly found out that they didn’t have any and wouldn’t get them for a while. .
Elegant, technically advanced, it supports a wide range of the most common 3D modes. With the monitor set to run at 60Hz via the HDMI cable, the PC graphics card runs about 15 degrees cooler than the Samsung RZ2233 counterpart. The glasses supplied with this monitor will work with the Samsung RZ2233 Nvidia configuration. The good news is that the 3D format will work with an ATI Radeon or Nvidia video card.
The glossy screen can leave fingerprint marks, as can the glossy black faceplate control pad. The location of the monitor is critical to avoid reflections on the bright screen. I have not been able to get my older version “Nvidia 3D glasses” to work with this monitor. The stand takes up little space and could present a problem if not positioned carefully.
The best PC monitor I have come across to date. This 2D, HD, or 3D monitor far outperforms anything I’ve come across with blacker blacks and energy efficiency that puts little stress on computer hardware. The monitor provides a clear television via a simple “USB Video Stick” when connected via the computer’s USB port. Fast action shows up well on this 2ms 120Hz monitor. Play Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D at a very high level.
My rating 4.5 out of 5 stars – Excellent first-class product at a great price. LG D2770P 2D 3D HD Monitor Comparison with Samsung S27A750 2D 3D HD Monitor:
I was hoping to find a working model of the LG D2770P 2D 3D HD to compare with this Samsung counterpart. I contacted LG twice with no luck. I’m more than happy to check out the LG monitor if I can find one that works in 3D. Until then I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
