Asus VG236HE 120Hz 3D-capable LCD Monitor Review, Specs and Price


It has been a while since I’ve tested a 3D-capable LCD monitor with the LG W2363D being the last one back in July. And now, finally, I had the ASUS VG236HE available for some time to test, so below you will find the review of the monitor and as usual my focus will be on the stereo 3D performance, although I’ll also cover some other aspects when using the monitor in plain 3D mode too. ASUS VG236HE is the version of the VG236 model that does not come with the 3D Vision glasses bundled, the other available version VG236H comes with the glasses bundled Justify Fullwhich makes the total price a bit more attractive than buying the two products alone, but the both monitors are exactly the same. So now let’s start with the ASUS VG236HE

Asus VG236HE is one of the latest 120Hz 3D-capable LCD monitors compatible with Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology, but what sets it apart from all other such products is the fact that this is the first 3D-capable 120Hz LCD monitor with a glossy screen, as all others so far were with matted screens (not counting the 120Hz LCD panels used in 3D-capable laptops that are also glossy). Now this kind of reflective coating over the screen can create some reflections when darker image is being displayed and some people do not like that much, although more and more monitors in general are being made like that, but you can get used to that or just avoid it by choosing another product.
