Default A Short 3D Vision Review

As much as I hate it I've packed up my old wired E-D shutterglasses and replaced them with Nvidia's shutterglasses. $179.99 at micro center. I'm using them with the system below on a HP p1230 CRT. The package is pretty nice. Comes with a little bag and cleaning cloth.

Primarily I game at 2048x1536 85hz. I was pretty happy to find how well most games did in 3D at that resolution. A few games I had to lower the res down to 1600x1200 100hz; Prototype, JC2, James Bond QOS. With Metro2033 I had to go down to 1280x960 120hz. Metro2033, BFBC2, Prototype, LFS, GTR2, AC2, GTAIV, JC2, Borderlands all are spectacular in 3D. I've yet to reinstall any Stalkers but I hear they're awesome as well.

At 120hz I started noticing a lot of flicker in the glasses. Like they were losing sync all the time. Seems like the faster the game was running the worse it got. Flashing almost every 10sec or so. Going back to 85hz stopped it completely. As far as ghosting and 3D effect stand I couldn't tell much if any difference between 85hz and 120hz, 42fps and 60fps so with the flashing issue I'm sticking to 85hz.

I'm pretty happy finally having 3D back. Works great with my CRT. I'm not surprised a lot of games still have issues but I'm glad it's in the mainstream.

If you already have 3D Vision Nvidia has a few streaming videos on their site 3D vision Live.

The US Open 2010 Women's Final replay is also up being streamed.

Nascar in 3D. Just click player demo.

Anyone know of any other 3D video sites or anything do share. I need to get a bluray drive.

They do and lower, 60hz also works just fine. Most of that stuff is LCD only. This US Open 3D I'm watching is only playing at 30fps.

I wonder if the the glasses can't open and close fast enough to do 60hz on each side.

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. I think itís more the IR transmitter or wireless transmission that can't keep up.
