Pros: •Good 2D Image Quality (for a TN panel)
•Low price for a 3D monitor
•The bundled with the DDD/Tridef software, which depending on the game, works better or worse than 3D Vision
•Can be used with nVidia 3D vision if you use an EDID override driver
•When working well (with the CORRECT GLASSES*), the 3D image quality is superb.
•Supports 3D over DVI and HDMI(Bluray, PS3)
•LG was quick to issue an RMA#
Cons: •The wrong glasses were included with this monitor, and LG ignores the problem
-The glasses I (and many others have received) are the wrong glasses. They are polarized 45 degrees off what they should be. This results in purple ghosting at any level of separation or depth. Turn the lens 45 degrees, and the ghosting disappears. The correct glasses are P/N FPG-2000. These are not what I received.
•The base is somewhat "flimsy", although it was perfectly acceptable for the price point.
Other Thoughts: I contacted LG about this, and was told "all our glasses are the same". This is simply not true. People have received the monitor with correct glasses, and the issue does not exist. I was told to "hard reset" the monitor, etc, but none of that can fix a physical polarizer misalignment. After pointing out several threads on AVS forums and mtbs3d to the support chat person, I was told to RMA the monitor. However, everyone who has RMA'ed the monitor (that I know of) received the same monitor and incorrect glasses combo.
You CAN however purchase Zalman ZM-SG100G, and they work correctly. Buyer beware. I am now out an additional $45 dollars for two pairs of correct glasses. I don't want an RMA LG - I want the right glasses!
I most likely will not RMA the monitor, as I am told LG is ignoring the issue. I have ordered two pairs of Zalman ZM-SG100G glasses.
I encourage everyone to search for "lg purple ghosting", and read user experiences.
