      Still wondering if the guy that thought that every 3D LCD has to be 120Hz will ever come back to BB.

      In case anyone cares what I'm talking about, it was a discussion in regards to the 24" Sony 3D Playstation Display, which has very little in the way of panel specifications anywhere out there on the internet. The closest I ever came was finding out it was probably a variation of a VA panel, although I'm still not very impressed with color accuracy and contrast ratio when comparing side-by-side to my LG IPS221V (which is an IPS [e-IPS?] panel).

      The verdict is this -- the SimulView 240Hz marketspeak that is out there could potentially be for real, even if just 120Hz interpolated to 240Hz. However, even if this were the case (and very doubtful ,at that) there is no way for you to actually receive 120Hz over any connection. Not HDMI, and certainly not over component. It may be interpolated, but it is just that -- interpolated.

      So with all of this being said, my question/comment would be this: This monitor appears to be a pretty good deal for a passive 3D monitor, and comes with two pairs of glasses which is always nice. Being as it is passive, we shouldn't have any active shutters -- should the screen still be driven at 60Hz and appear as 60Hz to the eyes for 3D content? In specific, I'm wondering about gaming, whether Win7 or Win8. Also, if anyone has this specific monitor, is it VA or TN? How does the display look? Is there an obsessive amount of darkening when using the glasses, or does the 3D content still come through reasonably?

      Figured it's a longshot, but if I can get rid of my Playstation 3D display for something a bit better, I'm more than happy to offload it. I really enjoyed the 3D fwiw, but even if just for the novelty of having a capable display, would perhaps like something a bit better.
