Acer introduces 23.6-inch 120Hz 3D-ready LCD monitor

By on February 1, 2010, 3:02 PM
Jumping into the 3D market with both feet, Acer has launched a new 3D-ready computer monitor today. The company's 23.6-inch TN-based GD235HZ display has a 120Hz refresh rate and is designed to work with Nvidia's 3D Vision active-shutter glasses.

Other features include a 1920x1080 resolution, 80,000:1 ACM/1,000:1 native contrast ratios, 300cd/mē brightness, 2ms response time, 0.2715mm pixel pitch, 170/160-degree viewing angles, and covers 72% of the NTSC color gamut.


HDMI, DVI, and VGA inputs are present, and the display consumes 38.2W when on and 1.85W when asleep. It's also compatible with 100mm VESA mounting systems. The GD235HZ will kick off this month with a suggested retail price of $399.99, and Nvidia's 3D Vision Kit will set you back another $199.99.

In other Acer news, the company said it has no plans to compete against Apple's iPad. Instead, Acer's 2010 mobile lineup will be between 50 to 60% full-size laptops, 20 to 30% ultraportable notebooks, and the remaining chunk will stem from netbooks.

I think one of the things holding the old Samsung 3D monitor back was the below-1080p resolution. But the price seems very high considering normal 1080p screens cost about half as much.

120Hz = awesome

72% NTSC gamut = fail

No thanks. As long as there are glasses involved, I ain't interested.

That's a pretty flashy looking monitor....no need for the 3-d though.

I've got the samsung lcd and 3d vision glasses and they are absolutely amazing, i've watched various s3d videos with no probs. and i've tried the new Batman, RE5, COD WAW, NFS Shift and others, all brilliant.

3d vision gets full marks from me :)
