You have heard of the ultimate in home cinema entertainment with the advancing technology that allows you to recreate 3D cinema and sports in your home. Well not to be outdone the computer industry is trying to match it. 3D monitors are becoming more and more available, allowing you to enjoy 3D gaming.
One of the first manufacturers to get involved in 3D monitors was Nvidia, which released their 3D vision computer screen a couple of years ago. It was made up of shutter glasses to produce a picture at 120 frames per second. However, the 3D vision would only realise its best results when used with a powerful Nvidia graphics card. More recently, Acer created their own version of 3D ready monitors but made theirs slightly bigger at 23.6". They were also made fully HD which had not been done before. According to experts, in order to get the most out of the 3D gaming experience it is better to get as large a 3D monitor as possible.
However, in order to achieve a truly enjoyable 3D gaming experience there are certain things that you need to have in addition to a 3D ready monitor. The first of these things is a powerful graphics card because the way that 3D graphics works is by producing the images twice. Therefore a small card will not be able to cope and the graphics of the game will not do the 3D monitor justice. Another must have, are 3D glasses. There are no issues with compatibility here so you should be able to get glasses without too much problem.
With developments occurring all the time and technology rapidly advancing you can expect to see more and more 3D monitors arriving on the market. Sony, for example, have announced a 3D monitor designed for the Playstation that will allow two users to enjoy the 3D experience at once, something that is not currently possible.
However, from the selection of 3D ready monitors that are currently available you would do well to choose between the LG W2363D-PF which is affordable yet high performing or the Acer GD235HZ. The Acer model is another 3D monitor that delivers high performance at low prices and comes with a three year warranty. It is also one of the largest monitors at 23.6".
Other options currently on the market include the BenQ XL2410T which is the first LED based 3D monitor but is more expensive than its competitors; it is also quite large measuring in at 23.6". The LG D2342P is another option and is not the most expensive of all 3D monitors mentioned, however its performance is not in quite the same league as some of your other options.
As this is still a relatively new technology, it would be worth taking some time to read a few online reviews to find out what other users have to say about each product. Once you have set your budget and read up on the different 3D ready monitors available your purchase should be more straightforward.
