Acer Aspire 3D (AS-5738DG-664G50Mn) Laptop for Additional Testing

November 20th, 2009 · 7 Comments · Other S3D Tech


Thanks to Acer I now have one of their Acer Aspire 3D laptops for more extensive testing, so you’ll also be seeing some useful articles regarding this laptop and its stereoscopic 3D capabilities along with the frequent 3D Vison posts. Just to remind you that unlike the 120Hz display and active glasses used by 3D Vision, Acer’s laptop relies on passive polarization of the display and passive circular polarized glasses worn by user. As for the software part, the 3D-capable laptop is relying on DDD’s TriDef Ignition software that offers video card independent stereoscopic 3D support – works both on ATI and Nvidia hardware.

If you want to read my first impressions from the Acer Aspire 3D laptop…

    psst: it’s “relies,” not “relays.”

    All my best,

    I would like to know if this notebook works well with the “Stereoscopic Multiplexer” from 3dtv.at – http://www.3dtv.at/Products/Multiplexer/Index_en.aspx
    It would make it a perfect monitor for 3D on set.

    Thanks for the correction … ;)

    Ivan, I believe that there should be no problems using this laptop with the Stereoscopic Multiplexer for recording the video and then previewing the content in S3D. The only drawback that this model has is that when in S3D mode you just get half of the horizontal resolution, so you should have that in mind.

    I want to know the crosstalk level of this 3D laptop.
    ZALMAN ZM-M220W has “Left eye ghost”.
    I hope that Acer’s 3D laptop has solved this problem.

    Anyway, I cannot understand why this laptop is not released in Japan.

    The Acer does not have a significant ghosting problem, but suffers from lower viewing angles… and since it is not a monitor, but a laptop screen you have to learn to adjust to the best position to view the screen.

    Thank you, Bloody.

    Because I am using ZALMAN ZM-M220W monitor now, it may better that I will choose the 3D laptop as another method like ASUS.
    Wired shutter glasses of Olympus seem to be usable for ASUS.

    Eh, I’ll just go with a nice gaming rig with Acer’s 24-incher. I hate using laptops unless I have a really nice desktop, but, alas, I am still waiting on ($$$) so that I can actually go out and buy my planned rig.

    Right now I am using a Toshiba Satellite a200 series laptop with a 15.6″ screen, and as with all laptops with smaller screens, the lack of an actual monitor makes me hunch over to view everything.

    Suffice it so say, I really need a chiropractor. ;)
