The ViewSonic FuHzion VX2268wm
The glasses are only one half of the whole combination that is required to get 3D Vision up and running. The second part is to have a capable monitor like the ViewSonic FuHzion VX2268wm. The thing is that this isn't just a monitor worth looking at if you're interested in 3D Vision, the main feature of a 120Hz refresh rate is a huge plus for gamers, period.
There's not a huge amount to say about the monitor; inside the box we've got a manual and driver CD and along with them we have a few cables which include DVI, VGA and power.
The monitor sits in two parts when in the box. The stand in this case actually screws onto the monitor as opposed to clipping in like most other monitors. The setup is easy, but more importantly, it adds a higher quality feel to the whole unit which makes it really stand out as a quality piece of equipment.
My understanding of the VX2268wm when compared to the more regularly available VX265wm in the U.S. is that the 68 has a better on-screen display, better stand and 0 lag. The most important feature of these would be the last one. In saying that, though, you only have to look on forums around the world and see people in the U.S. are raving about how good the 65 model is and how it's the first time they've been able to use an LCD monitor after using a CRT one with a high refresh rate for so long.
While I personally can't comment on any of the above, in a direct comparison I can say the stand is excellent. The OSD is a pain like every other monitor's OSD and the thing looks sensational when playing fast moving games without 3D Vision.
If you're a regular gamer and you're looking at buying a 22" LCD, this is the one to get. The bottom line is that the 120Hz feature in itself is going to be enough for people to buy it, while the fact that it also includes 3D Vision is a bonus.
The VX2265wm is going to set you back $249.99 at Newegg. This isn't cheap considering that 22" monitors can be had for $154.99 and the cheapest ViewSonic being $179.99. However, in saying that, it's also not the most expensive with the new ViewSonic LED based 22" coming in at a huge $459.99. And while this monitor doesn't offer the same brightness levels as the LED based one, it looks simply fantastic and the bottom line is that the 120Hz refresh rate makes gaming absolutely sensational.
If you're looking at getting a new monitor anytime soon and you don't mind spending a bit more than the cheaper units out there, check out one of these 120Hz ViewSonic monitors. By the end of the review, you might just find that you'll also want to get a 3D Vision kit to really bring the whole unit to life.
