Acer’s Twenty-four Inch 3D Display is Available Now

There’s a new 3D capable LCD on the market for only $399, but it’s not a TV.

If you’re looking for a nice 3D display and you don’t mind sitting at your desk, Acer’s got a 23.6” monitor that’s fully 3D capable for only $399 on sale today. To watch content from your computer, you’ll still need to pick up Nvidia’s 3D Vision kit, but $600 is still a relatively low price of entry for 3D technology.

Not sold on the whole 3D thing? The Acer GD235HZ is still a great monitor for HD movies. Just like a television, Acer’s new creation sports a 1080p resolution. It’s got a 16:9 aspect ratio, rather than the 16:10 ratio found in many widescreen computer monitors. The GD235HZ also sports has an impressive 80,000:1 contrast ratio.

The big news is in speed though. Acer’s new monitor has a ridiculously fast response time of as little as 2ms. It’s also one of few LCD computer monitors that hits the 120Hz mark, which has been a bit of a struggle for the technology.

This isn’t going to replace your living room television by any means, but it’s a nice cheap way to jump into 3D, and an all around nice monitor.
