LG W2363D is Yet Anoter 23″ 120 Hz 3D-capable Monitor

January 14th, 2010 · 10 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


A little more than a month ago LG has announced that they are ready with 23-inch 120Hz LCD panels and during CES the company was already showing the first display to use these panels. LG W2363D will be the first 23″ 120 Hz 3D-capable monitor under the company’s brand, but I’m expecting a lot more display using the same panel to come out later this year. The LG W2363D display has to be out in the market in the second quarter this year, just before summer, but unfortunately there is no word about the expected price yet. In the mean time Alienware revealed their OptX AW2310 23″ 3D Full HD display and it seems that the company already started taking orders for it at a price of $499 in USA. It appears that Alienware’s specs are similar to the ones announced from LG, but there is still nothing confirmed about what panel is being used by OptX AW2310, although it will probably become clear pretty soon as the first reviews of the new Alienware display will probably be available pretty soon…

Announced specifications for LG W2363D:

Panel Size: 23″ Widescreen, 16:9
Panel Type: TN – Twisted Nematic
Native Resolution: 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
Contrast ratio: 70000:1 (dynamic)
Response Time: 3ms (typical) (GtG)
Speakers: SRS Tru-Surround HD Speakers
Video Connectivity: DVI x1, HDMI x2
Other features: Thru mode (no input lag?), Noise reduction (3D N/R), Auto-brightness (input source)

    I spoke to the international sales manager at the LG stand at the BETT show and he was saying an April launch for this, along with an led monitor and a nice very portable led projector. :)

    23″ is really too small for 3D gaming…Launch 27″ instead (in fullHD resolution)!

    Asus is preparing a 27″ Full HD model… the PG276H, expected in late May – early June with a price of about $549-$599.

    Should I wait for this or should i buy the Acer now?

    Can’t tell anything about the display until it becomes available and I’m being able to test it personally, but I don’t expect it to be much different than the Acer…

    Do you know if Asus will work with XpanD glasses? This shutter glasses only work with LED monitors. I have talked to some guys in sales and technical support adn they refered the LG and ViswSonic. This is the only reason why I have not bought a 3D monitor. I want one to work with those glasses, it seems like XpanD is going to rule the market since they are already manufacturing for different TV brands so the glasses are supposed to work with any monitor or TV. Any way my expectation is that this glasses with a LED monitor will reduce or eliminate ghosting at once.

    The word LED used to describe a monitor or TV just means that it has a different sort of backlight, so instead of the traditional CCFL backlight now we have LEDs – either at the side of the LCD or at the back of the panel. But the panel itself is still a normal LED, so basically there is no way to remove the ghosting by just replacing the backlight, you need to work on the LCD panel.

    As for the glasses, I don’t think that XpanD will produce universal glasses that will work with 3D-capable PC monitors, but just universal for all kinds of 3D-capable TV sets. For the PC you still need to have the IR transmitter that comes with the 3D Vision and if you have it you’ll also have the Nvidia glasses… and this kind of makes it pointless to additionally purchase universal glasses, right?

    This is one of the email that I received from XpanD. Hope that answer your question, I mean you have the product series and then you can take a look on its features.

    By the way, there are solutions (monitors and drivers) based on ATI. The only reason why I ahve not bought any one of those is becasue of the compatibility with XpanD. Now, about ghosting, the problem has to do more with the monitor and it’s ability to fully close the pixel and the time the glasses are shutting, so I hope on this second generation of 3d monitor some one can improve that.

    Email from XpanD:
    HI, Alex,

    Thanks for your interest in Xpand.

    Rorey already answered you about the release date. I would like to add that you will be able to buy the glasses at best Buy, Fry;s, Brandsmart, Sears others, and Target and Walmart by the end of the year.

    The glasses will work with ATI cards, we have a very good working relationships with AMD, and they will have a wide support of 3D applications. However our glasses will not work with Alienware and Acer 120Hz monitors. Those monitors, as well as early Samsung and Viewsonic do not use strobing LED backlight. However there will be 120Hz models coming to the market pretty soon, that use LED backlit. Companies like HP, CMO, Viewsonic, LG and others are planning to offer such monitors.

    I hope I answered your questions. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    Best Regards,
