NVIDIA NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Wireless Glasses Kit Model 942-11431-0007-001
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quality construction. Worked out of box. 3D movies are better than theater. Easy to use. My non-tech mother uses them without issue.

Cons: Games are dark. To the point they are unplayable in 3D (at least for me). World Of Warcraft(tm) was unbearably dark for me. Although now I am starting to get used to it. Waiting a while before I get a LightBoost(tm) monitor until they shake the bugs out and prices come down. (Maybe a year?) It's why I got these version 2 glasses kit.

Other Thoughts: Although games seem to be too dark for me, I have faith that in a year or two LightBoost monitors will be on the market to try out.

3D movies are PHENOMENAL. I use the 3D SBS (Side by side) and the Stereoscopic Player(tm) configured accordingly.

PLANAR SA2311W Black 23

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: No Dead pixels. Comes with Dual-Link DVI cable. I bought this with nVidia's 3D Vision 2 kit here on Newegg. There was terrible 3D ghosting in my games until I realized I hadn't selected 120hz in game. (Some games overide system settings and thus have to be configured again in game). Once I selected 120hz, no ghosting that I could tell. Beware that due to technology the games are dark. When nVidia LightBoost monitors are on the market for a while I may upgrade to those. 3D movies are PHENOMENAL!!! I use the 3D SBS mkv, avi etc. with the Stereoscopic Player (The actual name of the player, not a description). I mean breathtaking.

Cons: From my subjective, non 'pro' experience, nothing that would dock an egg. When I turn monitor to complete black some light 'bleeding' along the top. I don't notice it during play or work. I don't notice it now since I've gotten used to monitor, but at first colors seemed a bit 'washed' compared to my HP 2159m.

Limited control options to adjust 'washedoutness'. Absolutely no controls in 3D, save for contrast. They're locked out.

Other Thoughts: Standard 2D gaming is excellent. The high FPS games I play I didn't notice any lag as reported. Full disclosure though, I am not a 'leet' player and probably dont' have a trained eye for it. All in all, worth every penny I paid for it. If there were time tested LightBoost(tm) monitors to market I would have invested in one of those. Too many complaints on the ones that were out, so this will more than satisfy for at least a year before I buy one of those.

Apple MB110LL/A White USB Wired Slim Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought this for my hackintosh build. Very satisfied. Looks beautiful.

Cons: The USB cord is WAY WAY to short. Since Apple is so big on user experience, maybe they either extend the usb cable length or at these prices include a usb extension?

Apple how can you put so much thought and engineering in such a beautiful keyboard and mess it up with such a completely unacceptably short cord?

Other Thoughts: Coming from a classic keyboard to this takes a couple days to get used to. But once I got used to it very satisfied w/ the keyboard layout and keyboard feel.

Again, my only gripe is the usb cord is and unacceptable length and now I have to factor in more money for a USB extender cable.
