My System Specs

Default

Not recommended.

I tried one out and took advantage of Best Buy's return policy not even a week after I grabbed it and took it home.

First off, Simulview only works with game support, so you can't play other, older favorites.

Second, the pixel response is very slow and even with the supposed 120hz refresh rate, it doesn't seem to take advantage of it because the panel itself is a C-PVA panel without very good pixel response.

Third, it cannot use HDMI 120hz with a PC, and it doesn't support 4:4:4 chroma sub-sampling, so if you have red or blue text on a black background, or vice versa with black text on a red or blue background, the text appears fuzzy.

In addition, the speakers are horrible, the 3D is ho-hum, and the glass on the front causes major reflection.

Honestly I'd probably say the Samsung S23A700D for $399.99 from Future Shop is better. I'm not sure if it can do 120hz/3D with a console, but a little googling should get you that answer. In other countries, like the U.S. I think it is the S23A750D.
