LG D2342P-PN Reviews 

I have used this for game on the PC and PS3 games. The display of the 2D is a good screen. This is not to blow your socks off, but it was cool and clear and well. But you do not buy this for your 2D, You are responsible for the 3D-shopping. 3D is great! I was very impressed and very satisfied with the effect. The driver is included TriDef 3D worked with ease and has a very user-friendly interface with a lot of depth (no pun intended) to change the 3D properties.

The 3D passive product does produce some barely noticeable lines. A good viewing distance was not a distraction of any kind. There is also a mode that compensates for "3D Color". This added the changes of color and brightness slightly to compensate for the polarized glasses. It makes a big difference and made the images jump off the screen. I am really impressed by the appearance of PC gaming in 3D.

If you consider for this screen, the screen gives me the same ups-inch Full. But there are other things, not on the screen to be aware before you buy must be used. TriDef 3D drivers (as iZ3D driver) processes are very intensive on your CPU. My framerate suffered greatly when the 3D mode. I use a MacBook Pro with the 9600M GT GPU. On some older games that I can easily shoot 40 frames per second at full resolution and settings, my rate would be 15-20 (or less) drop-in full 3D unplayable.

Even games like Half LIfe where I could easily get 70 FPS, the full 3D still dropped my framerate to an uncomfortable level. The saving grace is that TriDef has "Virutal 3D mode" which becomes a "give and take". The major benefit of Virtual 3D mode is that my Framerate only suffered about 5 FPS instead of 15-20 or worse. Interestingly, it also actually cleared up any ghosting and double images created by super close or super far objects. But it also created a strange blurry halo around my first person weapon or 3rd person character. The halo was noticeable when you looked for it, but during gameplay, I never noticed it and it was inconsequential.

The frame rate is more than the value increases the strange anomaly. Its interesting to note that, with the exception of the strange blur effect the picture was better than the 3D mode. Full 3D mode, I had a hard time images extremely close was not a double image effect. The rest of the screen would be great, but my gun would be doubled. Once again. Many parameters to play and I have not changed enough. Did not my framerate has been disrupted so poor, in full 3D.

On another note I was completely disappointed with the PS3 in 3D. Even through no fault of the screen. With intensive treatment of the GPU and the rate of shock PS3 drastically downgrade the graphics of the game to get a playable frame rate up. Killzone 3D and 3D is Motorstorm seemed that I was a game on an HD screen in standard definition. A set of edges, textures were lower it just looked bad. I would have preferred full-resolution 2D game to waste my time playing in 3D have low resolution. I recommend investing your hard earned money in a system in 3D (at all) if you play the PS3.

Summary: This monitor is excellent value to sale price ~$260 The screen is average (and accepted) in 2D representation, but the 3D is really cool! Conversion from 2D to 3D game was great and "Made for 3D" games were even better! Just be sure to get a system powerful enough to have to push the 3D-intensive process.
