Sony PlayStation 3D display review: Sony PlayStation 3D display

 

Editors' note: The review and score of this product was updated on November 28, 2011, to reflect the fact that the display only ships with one set of 3D glasses instead of two.

The PlayStation 3D Display successfully enables two players to see their own individual screens while using SimulView technology, though the display only comes with one pair of 3D glasses. Also included is an HDMI cable and a copy of MotorStorm:...

The display's glare is terrible, as the surface reflects nearly everything in sight. The screen's small 23.5-inch size makes it tough to play at far distances and forces the players to sit nearly shoulder to shoulder to get the right effect. There's no...

While there's some pretty impressive technology built inside, the PlayStation 3D Display isn't a very practical device. Its $500 price tag is too much money considering its laundry list of shortcomings.

Sony PlayStation 3D Display review

 

When I went to college, not that long ago, I searched high and low for an affordable way to connect my PC and game consoles to the same screen. There weren't many options, because computers' VGA cables and televisions' RCA and S-Video jacks didn't get...

Stylish, slim design ; Dual native HDMI 1.4a inputs ; Quality shutter glasses

Ridiculously glossy screen ; Requires a dark room ; Minor annoyances abound

One screen to rule the dorm

Sony PlayStation 3D Display

 

Every once in a while, Sony comes up with a really great idea, and we think this may wind up being one of them. At first glance, Sony's new PlayStation-branded TV appears to be the product of some clever marketing down at Sony HQ — an effort to...

Solid picture quality ; SimulView is useful and entertaining ; Acceptable 3D brightness

No remote ; Terrible speakers ; Small screen size

Sony has managed to make a $500, 24-inch display appealing by including some useful accessories, integrating 3D and offering the rather innovative SimulView feature.

Sony PlayStation 3D Display review

 

Sony hopes to bring 3D to the masses with a low-cost Sony PlayStation 3D Display-branded television it announced at E3 in Los Angeles.

The PlayStation 3D display bundle comes with the television, an HDMI cord, Resistance 3 and one set of active shutter glasses for around $500 in the US. It will be available in the third quarter of this year.

Sony PlayStation 3D Display

 

The PlayStation 3D Display was originally unveiled at E3 2011 as a television built by Sony targeted at gaming fans. Priced at £449, the Sony PlayStation 3D Display has a 23.5-inch 3D and full HD 1080p display, two HDMI inputs, a pair of 3D shutter...

While Sony is to be commended for building a display to gamers it isn’t quite the entertainment behemoth some will have expected. It offers little in the way of extra features, and since its announcement TVs have gone down in price. Looking elsewhere...

"One heck of a good deal and works great, got it for $99!!!"

 

I got this on boxing day a while back (not this last year) and its great, I've heard of the problems with it but in 3 years, i haven't encountered anything. I got glasses, a cable and a game with the tv which alone is worth the 99 bucks i spent on it....

Great sound, multiple inputs, great clarity, came with glasses and a game and a hdmi cable!

the screen is shiny so if its bright, its a bit hard to see

"Died after 1 month, Blinking Red Light. DO NOT BUY!"

 

I was ecstatic to bring this display home and hook it up to a second 80 GB fat Playstation in the bedroom. It worked fantastically, both with 3D and without. But after 1 month it died. I'd read about the defect, and on some Sony sites it is no longer...

- Great picture

- No remote (primarily for volume and switching inputs)

"Would be worth 5 stars if it actually worked- ISSUES!"

 

DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE BUYING. KEEP EXTRA $300 TO BUY A SPARE, OR JUST BUY TWO NOW. I bought my unit in early Feb during the after-Christmas sale period. Best Buy had this for $399 before the holiday, and only $299 after - in a combo with a 3D movie,...

Compact size, just big enough for office/den. Decent quality video, easay to setup and use. Big fan of 3d tech - this is great entry point.

Issues, that common to ALL units:
