Viewsonic has launched the V3D241wm-LED, a 24in display with 3D capability. It will cost £330. The company claims that the V3D241wm-LED is fully certified with AMD Radeon graphics cards, and as AMD currently doesn’t offer an equivalent to Nvidia 3D Vision, we’re trying to establish exactly what this means in terms of stereoscopic 3D gaming.
The 1,920 x 1,080 capable 3D241wm uses an LED backlight, which should bode well for picture quality. Indeed, the contrast ratio is given as no less than 20,000,000:1, which is clearly more zeros than you could shake a stick at. Naturally, we don’t hold much stock by manufacturer's claimed contrast ratios but it does at least suggest that Viewsonic is confident of a decent black level. The display offers a brightness of 300 nits and a claimed response time of 2ms.
3D compatibility comes courtesy of its 120Hz refresh capability and the display is supplied with a set of active shutter glasses, though these have to be wired in via USB.
Connectivity is good with HDMI, DVI and D-Sub. Speakers are integrated into the Viewsonic with a full two 2-watts of power each, and there’s an eco-mode too.
The Viewsonic V3D241wm-LED should be available now.
