PlayStation 3D Display
It was awesome.......until it broke.
It was a great tv. It has razor sharp picture and a cool, sleek design. I used it for my ps3 and my cable box so that I could watch regular tv. It was all I could ask for(Except I want a remote...), and it was a great deal for a 1080p tv for $180. It has worked since Christmas 2012 until today, August 4, 2013. But today I went up to my room to play Skyrim, and when I turned it on, the blue light came on, faded to green, then started flashing red. I tried unplugging it and turning it back on, but nothing seems to work. I have unplugged it and am waiting a few hours before plugging it back in. I'll see if that works, but if it doesn't, I can't find my warrantee papers, so I might not be able to get it repaired or get my money back. If you have this monitor, KEEP YOUR RECEIPT AND WARRANTEE CLOSE.
Great Home 3D Entertainment Package
This monitor is amazing. It was a good choice for me because I was looking for a Hi Def display in the 20 to 24 inch range and this product was the winner. The picture quality is amazing. Colors are very accurate, and when calibrated correctly the whites are very bright and the blacks are very deep. The 3D picture is good as well. Little to no crosstalk which is very nice. In terms of sound quality it is what you can expect form a small TV or monitor... not very good. I would suggest external PC speakers or hooking the monitor up to a receiver. The design for the monitor is very elegant. Although the gloss on the screen is a bit over done, it causes glare when in a lighted room when a dark scene takes place on screen. Overall I am pleased with this monitor.
The 3D glasses are very nice. They are very comfortable to wear. They have a very sleek design. Also the battery life is very good.
Motorstorm is very entertaining. The story is pretty good and the gameplay is fun. The graphics are a mix of cartoonish backdrops and realistic looking cars. The design is nice, explosions sound like explosions and cars sound like cars. The customization of the vehicles is very extensive. It allows you to change decals and the style of you vehicle. Overall a very fun game to own.
Overall this is a great package. It allows gamers to have HD and 3D for a good price. The monitor has great picture for the price. The 3D s great. The glasses are nice.Motorstorm Apocalypse is a fun game to play. I am very glad that i purchased this product.

Definitely not the greatest
I bought this display when it first came out about a year ago (I think). First off, the initial price was ridiculous! I know it had a price cut, but I just wanted to comment on the original price. If I'm not mistaken, the display was somewhere around $500. Since the glasses are active shutter glasses, each one costs about $50. In total, I must have spent around $700. The first major problem with this display is that it has no remote. It's a real pain when every time you want to raise the volume or change a setting you have to reach behind the display and press the buttons. The display will actually show a diagram of the buttons. But in the end, you just have to memorize where each button is. Another negative thing about this display is that I can never seem to get the settings right. This could honestly be my fault for not being extremely knowledgable when it comes to displays or it could just be the display's fault. One problem is that the audio levels just seem to fluctuate so much. This could actually also be a problem from the input source (I use a Wii U). But at times I find that noises are incredibly quiet but when I raise the volume other noises are incredibly loud. Another problem I seem to be having is I always get this weird "ghosting" issue. I'm not talking about 3D ghosting, I mean when I am using the display I see weird colors delayed behind an object in motion. For example, if I'm playing a 2D side scrolling game, I'll see a weird outline of the object moving following behind the actual object. This has happened to me upon multiple input sources (Computer, Xbox, and Wii U). The last problem I have with this display is that it uses active shutter 3D. I know; upon buying this I should've known about the active shutter 3D. But I'm not very experience in the 3D department. But since active shutter 3D is used, whenever I'm looking at anything besides the display I'll be the glasses "shuttering". This causes me to get a really bad headache. Once again, I'm not too experience in 3D so I don't know if passive 3D is less headache inducing. But I do know that active shutter 3D causes less ghosting than passive 3D. In conclusion, the Playstation 3D Display definitely is not the greatest display. Unless you truly want a 3D display, I'd say pass on this one. Also, I forgot to mention, this is a 24-inch display. It was much smaller than I thought it would be. It's probably best just for small apartments with 2 people. Four player split screen definitely not the greatest on this display, trust me.
This has failed me... TWICE!
I have had this display for quite a while, and I have been favoriting a lot of the products created by the Playstation company. I bought this display to satisfy my gaming needs... It didn't quite work out that way. I first got the display in early August of 2011, then it lasted until late September. The display was not working... it turned on with a black screen, and the red light flashed twice at four second intervals. It never came back on. There is not really some sort of troubleshooting to fix it. I tried doing many things, like unplugging it for a while then trying it again. It still didn't work. My parents simply thought that I got a bad display, and that I didn't do enough research. Well, most of the reviews are rated around 9s and 10s. I called customer support, and had it sent in to be repaired. It took about a month until I got it back. I was enjoying it a lot once i got it back.... until it happened again today. The same thing happened. If you buy this display... I highly recommend keeping your receipt in a place that you won't forget.... You will definetly need it in order to get it fixed. I saved up my money fo a while in order to get this, and I was outraged to find out it kind of stunk. Other than that, it wasn't too bad. But, the performance was so bad, that it dropped down the rating A LOT! As much as I love Playstation and its products... this sucked.
I would not buy this 24" 3D monitor. It will break
I bought this when it was on sale from $400 down to $120!!! How could I pass up a deal like that! I soon realized that after 8 days, the display quit working and the display would not power on. Instead of the wonderful illuminescent blue light that shows the display is working, all I got was BLINKING RED LIGHTS. I have sent my display off to Sony and am now waiting for round 2. I hope it lasts longer than 8 days this time. I will not include a youtube video, search for the monitor and blinking red lights, maybe it wil open your eyes. There are better 3D displays out there, go research before you buy. My mistake was impulse, but that won't happen again.
Great pic quality, 3D rocks, and Simulview is EPIC!!!! I hope that more developers will utilize the Simulview technology.
Works fine, for the first month
The TV is just awesome, quality, sound quality, inputs, outputs, everything is beautiful. The bad part is that all of these 3D Displays are badly made, by this I mean the video cards are scratched and badly done. The TV normally stops working around the first month, this is due to the poor video card inserted to this display. I do not recommend this product, because its better to buy a high price TV which will last for a couple of years. Than a cheap TV, which is really, really good. But will last you for a month.
It's good, but it's not a TV.
All I have to say about this is eh. The reason for this is the features. I mean yeah it's a 3D display but that's all that it is, a display. I can't see myself actually purchasing it because my TV does the same thing (sans the 3D though). I like how Sony is offering 3D at a reasonable price but it doesn't actually justify the price since there is no coaxial video option (aka Cable). However, if there is a work around for TV by any other means like HDMI output on cable boxes then I'm an idiot and I proudly admit that. Overall, this is a 3D display solely for the purpose of 3D gaming on the Playstation 3 and in my eyes it's just not that serious but it is welcomed.
Very Good TV For The Price
This TV Has insane Definition and a very sleek design. The 3D is amazing and so are the speakers on this. More important than the TV itself is the price. At $180 this is probably the best deal you will find for a TV of this calibur and you get a free game and glasses. So it's deff worth the price. My only complaints about this TV are the lack of remote and the fact they put the buttons on the back of the TV. Not entirely sure why they did that but I woulda liked a remote included with this TV. Also for all asking yes you can use this as a monitor for your computer and yes it does play 3D Movies. As for the size of this TV it's actually pretty decent especially for the price. If you are in need of a new TV or your just looking to upgrade your TV to something better this is deff the TV to get.
