To see the passive 3D that the ViewSonic V3D231 provides, i don't need HDMI 1.4a nor any particular brand of video card (although it must be powerful enough; 3D still takes a penalty on performance as far as i can see, so far)http://www.viewsonic.com/products/v3d231.htm
ViewSonic did not even provide a HDMI cable with it - instead i am using the DVI cable and the TriDef SW and having to make profiles for 3D games. What is included
V3D231, power cable, audio cable, VGA cable, DVI cable, 3D glasses, clip on polarized lenses, Quick Start Guide, ViewSonic Wizard CD-ROM, TriDef 3D software
However, am i missing another kind of 3D? One that uses HDMI 1.4a ?? Or does this display only support TriDef-style passive 3D. There are definite issues with the visuals using the passive polarized glasses.
However, this is a more inexpensive way to do 3D and the monitor itself is very decent.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/ ... yoga089-20
$293 shipped at Amazon with the glasses and TriDef 3D SW.
Compare to 3D Vision - a 23" 120 Hz display is about $300 - the glasses are $100 more. i guess that is just what i am going to do
