Five 3D monitors for your gaming rig
| by Rossi Fernandes
As the industry shifts its focus to 3D gaming, a number of things are going to happen and some have begun, already. 3D games and movies are becoming increasingly common these days and to really enjoy this 3D content, you’ll need a number of things. Firstly, a 3D capable system, since 3D processing does take a little more power than your everyday gaming PC. Once you have that figured, you have the games and, of course, you’ll need a good 3D display. To be honest, there aren’t a ton of models, but we’ve decided to scour the Indian market to find 3D monitors that are available in India.
BenQ XL2420T - Mighty and fancy design
BenQ is one of the newest entrants into the display market, but they’ve been around for a few years now, launching mainstream displays as well as displays for professionals and gamers. Their new XL2420T is a stylish, 24-inch full-HD 3D display. Like almost all 3D displays in the market, this one has a refresh rate of 120Hz. BenQ has branded this display as a gaming monitor and the styling makes it standard, apart from the rest of the everyday use displays that we’re used to. It’s a TN-based panel, like most of the other mainstream displays. In terms of connectivity, there’s everything; a single D-Sub, DVI, two HDMI ports and even a DisplayPort. There’s also a 3.5mm audio output jack that can be used to connect headphones or external speakers. There’s also a USB hub functionality, using which users can connect up to three devices to the display. This one’s a brand new model, but expect prices to be around the Rs.25,000 range. The old model - the XL2410T sold for roughly Rs. 28,000.
LG D2342P - Cinema 3D for your PC
LG has been one of the pioneers in the field of 3D. Earlier last year, they launched their Cinema 3D FPR technology, which used passive 3D glasses, instead of active ones. The advantage was that they were lighter, more compact and most importantly they did not give the user a headache after brief usage. There’s no need to even charge the batteries or sync the glasses with the display. Viewing angles also are better and LG bundles two glasses - one that is conventional and the other one of the clip-on variety, meant for those who use spectacles. The same technology has come to their LED-backlit LCD monitors. The LG D2342P is one such display, which has a 23-inch viewing area. In terms of connectivity, there’s a DVI, D-Sub and HDMI port, but no DisplayPort. For those who want to connect headphones or speakers, there’s also the 3.5mm analog output. LG has priced it at a nominal price of just Rs.14,300 in the market, which makes for a very good purchase, indeed.
