Pros:

Bright crisp, colorful image as a regular monitor. Factory color/gamma/contrast were pretty close out of the box. This was my first taste of 3D for games. The images were softer (less sharp), but fairly bright with decent color, as compared to an active 3D set (see below)

Cons:

Cheapest stand I've seen; just a snap-in foot; no adjustment except very slight tilt. Plugs point straight out the back, so no flush wall mount. The OSM indicates which buttons to press as: "1:Exit Select:2", suggesting that button 1 is left, 2 right. Nope, just the opposite. It's an annoying mismatch. If you purchase this as a 3D gamer, I think you will be disappointed. The technology has potential, but the implimentation is just not ripe. The 2d menus, buttons and pointer react strangely with the 3D world presented beyond them. It is visually fatiguing to have to look at both at the same time, and you always do while you play. Part of the issue is that when the 2D object blocks only one eye's portion of a 3D object, your eyes don't know how to resolve the half-image. I suspect that it's a software issue, and one that TriDef (required for 3D) struggles with. Otherwise, the 3D imagery is okay, but not great.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this monitor after viewing two 55" 3d TVs, side-by-side, one passive, one active. I was so impressed with the passive technology for movies, I thought it might also be good for gaming. It isn't, or at least not in this particular software/hardware package. Two days after this one arrived, I passed it off to my daughter and ordered a 120HZ monitor and the Vision 2 active glasses (fm Newegg). Now I have both systems and can compare them directly. The 120HZ mon. is not the latest "lightboost" tech version, and I wish it was. The image is intolerably dark and the colors suffer. Now I have two 3D monitor choices and neither one is really playable or enjoyable. Call me disappointed. Also to NEWEGG: This monitor bounced around for 3 days in the UPS truck in it's retail packaging until they found me at home. It would be okay if you charged me a couple extra bucks and put it in a box.
