ViewSonic’s V3D245 3D monitor literally leaps out on to the market.

Its all well and good being the proud owner of the latest 3D ready technology, but none of it will be much good without shelling out for the extra hardware you need to view it all.


All that is a thing of the past as far as ViewSonic is concerned, as its new V3D245 24 inch 3D monitor comes ready to impress with a pair of NVIDIA 3D vision glasses thrown in. Smart thinking ViewSonic.

This is a full HD LED monitor displaying 1920×1080 and using its 120 hz refresh rate and the built in NVIDIA wireless emitter, it will potentially throw you into the deep and of a stutter free 3D world if you have enough guts in your PC or player to drive it at full HD. Talking of players, you can hook up a Blu- Ray or Playstation3 using the integrated HDMI 1.4 connector, although if you’re looking for an all in one vision and audio solution, I wouldn’t get too excited about the onboard 2x2W speaker set.

The LED 2ms video output with 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 300 nits high brightness provides what ViewSonic suggests to be “unsurpassed image quality.”

James Coulson, ViewSonic’s. European marketing manager comments “This is the ultimate monitor for any gamer or just anyone playing around with 3D technology. It’s a neat solution with the built in NVidia transmitter, that uses LED technology to bring better contrast ratios and significant power savings, but can then revert back to a high performance 2D monitor when required. Working with NVidia is paramount to making 3D emersion a reality and this product is proof of that.”

The ViewSonic V3D245 will be available in the UK for £350
