I just read on the ASUS website that this notebook supports 3D..... but mine didn't come with the 3D Glasses in the box even thought the box was sealed when I bought it...

just to make sure... did yours come with3D Vision glasses or must one purchase them separately?

It really depends on your screen/display. The graphics card is capable of supporting 3D output but if the screen that shipped can't display it, then they wouldn't ship with the 3D Glasses. For example the BBK5 from Best Buy didn't ship with 3D glasses, but if I had a 3D TV I could connect via HDMI and enjoy.

You gotta research what version you buy, man. Always research before putting off a grand or two on such an investment. Read the specs, check the warranty, and what-not. Your laptops native screen isn't 3D capable, so glasses wouldn't do it any good.com

I actually had the same problem, but found out my monitor wasn't 3D. The company I purchased it from advertised that it had a 3D monitor, but it didn't when it showed up in the mail. They insisted it was 3D, but it wasn't. They since changed their website and are offering me compensation. I hope you actually do have a 3D monitor, double check the place you bought it from.

All the G series laptops are 3DTV Play ready. This means that the laptop will be able to output 3D to a supported 3D TV/ 3D projector.

Only the ASUS SKU's ending in 3D have the 120Hz 3D monitor built in. This sku also includes the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Glasses.

So you are saying that my specific model IS 3D capable???

Your Laptop's screen is not 3D capable but all G Series laptops can output 3D via HDMI out to a 3DTV.So, you can not watch 3D on your laptop but can watch 3D when you connect it to a 3D TV via HDMI out.If you don't have a 3DTV or 3D capable Projector , then no 3D is possible in your case. ;)

thanks for the info but what makes you all assume this? Is it the model number which I have in my signature?

It's the Nvidia chipset innate capability.

Two of the things to know so there'll be no need to assume:
1. There's an IR emitter on top of the screen (beside the cam).
2. The display is a 120 Hz matte-screen.

It looks the like your SKU is the base G75VW, this unit doesn't have the built in screen.

You can tell for sure by looking for the 3D icon to the left of the webcam

I basically have the same system and it definitely doesn't have a 3D capable screen, only the 3DTV output.... But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. You can tell the systems apart in a few different ways, most importantly by the graphics card. If you have the 670m, it comes with 3gb of RAM and 3D output only.... If you have 660, you only get 2gb of RAM and the 3D capable screen. So really it comes down to what you have your system for... If you have it for gaming then you want the 670m and 3gb of RAM. If you are really into watching 3D Blu-Rays on your system then you will want the 660, simple as that.
Hope this helps, Good Luck-

well there are always exceptions.

I have the 670 and a 3d screen. it all depend on how your system was put together. There appears to many different combinations all around the world.

mine much to my surprise came with 3D Glasses.

Got mine from my local Harvey Norman store (Australian Model)

Look in Signature for details.

Nope. I have a 660m on my G75VW-BBK5 and it does not have a 3D display nor was it advertised as having a 3D display. Both the 670m and 660m are capable of 3D but it depends on whether or not the model you have comes with the 3D display installed. In either case (with or without the 3D display) the G75 can and will output to a 3D TV. Each retailer has different combinations so double-check with your retailer to confirm if the 3D display is part of your particular G75.

Good to know Cecil... I hate providing misinformation. I just got that info from MarshallR@ASUS, so I'm surprised that there are 660's with 3D screens. Sounds like they have all sorts of different specs and models out there-
