ASUS VG236H 120Hz LCD Monitor 3D-Vision Set

ASUS VG236H 120Hz LCD Monitor

We live in a three-dimensional world, and yet we settle for a 2D virtual world while sitting in front of computers. The price of 3D-capable monitors isn’t affordable for budget buyers, just like LCD monitors weren’t value priced when they began showing up on shelf space beside CRT monitors, and yet they eventually became the industry standard. ASUS knows a thing or two about the computer hardware industry, and the ASUS VG236H 120Hz widescreen LCD monitor with bundled NVIDIA 3D-Vision kit could help take 3D mainstream. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology feature using stereoscopic 3D effects on this 23.6 inch monitor in single-unit and triple-display 3D-Vision Surround configurations.

The ASUS VG236H provides two primary functions: a gateway into the world of stereoscopic 3D, and a 1920x1080p widescreen LCD monitor capable of accepting HDMI input with HDCP support. The 0.265mm pixel pitch displays 16.7-million vivid colors with a 100000:1 maximum contrast ratio and 2ms response time on the TFT TN panel. Priced for $499.99 at NewEgg, this widescreen monitor/3D-Vision kit combines two premium technologies into one convenient package. Paired with a modern NVIDIA GeForce video card, gamers can enjoy extremely fast-paced action scene without ghosting effect, as well as experience their virtual battleground in 3D. Additionally, the ASUS VG236H can display 3D Blu-ray movies or streaming 3D content.

3D Gaming Health Concerns in the Clear?

nvidia, 3d gaming

If you’ve been worried about some of the bad press and negative publicity surround 3D gaming lately, then a Los Angeles-based Ophthalmologist by the name of Mark Borchert may help alleviate your fears. Borchert stresses that there is a percentage of people who become disorientated, and often dizzy with a feeling of imbalance and nausea when exposed to 3D games. But insofar as causing damage to your eyes or degrading vision, there is no evidence for that.

Concerning very young children under the age of 4 however, he does err on the side of caution stating that Ophthalmologists have “no idea” as to how 3D gaming may effect kids below the age of four. Sony has also amended their PlayStation Network’s Terms of Service stressing a Doctor’s consultation before letting your children play 3D games.
