ASUS VG236H 120Hz LCD Monitor 3D-Vision Set
We live in a three-dimensional world, and yet we settle for a 2D virtual world while sitting in front of computers. The price of 3D-capable monitors isn't affordable for budget buyers, just like LCD monitors weren't value priced when they began showing up on shelf space beside CRT monitors, and yet they eventually became the industry standard. ASUS knows a thing or two about the computer hardware industry, and the ASUS VG236H 120Hz widescreen LCD monitor with bundled NVIDIA 3D-Vision kit could help take 3D mainstream. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology feature using stereoscopic 3D effects on this 23.6 inch monitor in single-unit and triple-display 3D-Vision Surround configurations.
The ASUS VG236H provides two primary functions: a gateway into the world of stereoscopic 3D, and a 1920x1080p widescreen LCD monitor capable of accepting HDMI input with HDCP support. The 0.265mm pixel pitch displays 16.7-million vivid colors with a 100000:1 maximum contrast ratio and 2ms response time on the TFT TN panel. Priced for $499.99 at NewEgg, this widescreen monitor/3D-Vision kit combines two premium technologies into one convenient package. Paired with a modern NVIDIA GeForce video card, gamers can enjoy extremely fast-paced action scene without ghosting effect, as well as experience their virtual battleground in 3D. Additionally, the ASUS VG236H can display 3D Blu-ray movies or streaming 3D content.
For reference, Benchmark Reviews has separately tested the 3D Vision gaming kit.
