Hi,

I am having a very hard time finding the answer to this, so I am hopeful someone on here might know...

This laptop (G750JS-T4008H) was advertised as having 3GB DDR5 NVIDIA Geforce GTX870M, with Nvidia 3D Vision Technology, 3D TV output (HDMi 1.4 support)

So, does that mean I just need to buy the 3D Vision 2 kit to get 3D visuals on my laptop screen?

Thanks in advance,
Peter

If you have a 3d TV or 3d capable external monitor then yes you could do 3D.

The laptop screen itself is not capable and never will be.

The "3D" gaming fad is over, seriously. It just lowers your performance anyway.

Just gimmicky mess made up for the sake of marketing.

Thanks for the info juggar. I have received similar answers from other local NZ Asus suppliers. Seeing as a 'Product Manager' told me it was a 3D capable laptop (and all I needed was some 3D Vision 2 glasses) I am not happy. This whole 3D Vision thing appears to be a mess of bad advertising, mis-information and lots of annoyance! Might seeka refund.

I think the g750 versions that have 3D screens comes with 3D Vision glasses in the box included, and really who plays in 3D anywas, well atleast not me :D

kiwipeter, don't blame the sales guy, blame Asus for not clearly describing the requirements for the non-3D screen models.

You need to purchase the kit with the emitter and glasses in order to take advantage of an external 3D screen without a compatible Nvidia emitter. Or, you need an Nvidia 3D Vision 2 equipped monitor + Glasses.

It has been a point of confusion since the first G750 was released. They all say 3D, but the G750's with the 3D screen actually say they have Glasses / Emitter on the box.

Here is the kit you could use with an external 3D monitor/TV without compatible Nvidia 3D emitter:

3D Vision 2 Wireless Glasses Kit - For use with any 3D Vision Ready Display

Here is what you need if your TV/monitor has an Nvidia compatible emitter:

3D Vision 2 Wireless Glasses - For use with any 3D Vision Ready display with a built-in emitter or use as an extra pair of glasses

If you love 3D, and 3D games, it's worth doing :)

One of the reviews:

"3D Awesome Sauce

Pros: 3D gaming...which is really super groovy. Amazing actually. Adjustable stand, which is also mighty nice.

Cons: Make sure you aren't facing a window with direct sunlight, some ghosting, not awful if you download HeliX mods...speakers are pretty cheesy, but we all knew that coming in, right? Buy some real speakers.

Other Thoughts: I love it I love it it works great and I love it. OK, note, 3D Vision does have shader issues for almost every game, so you WILL have to download the HeliX mods to fix the shadows, because that will ruin your Skyrim business for sure. Trust me though, those shader fixes WORK. Worth the time downloading the fixes, especially for Behthesda titles.

If you play Metro 2033 or Last Light, no shader fixes are necessary. At any rate, if you like your gaming to be fully immersive, and you have the money to go 3D Vision, and your graphics card supports it, GO FOR IT. This monitor is great, and heck, right now it's priced right, so go ahead and pull the trigger like I did a couple of months ago.

I currently playing a Super Modded Skyrim, and... well, to be honest, I WALK everywhere I go now because I really get off on wandering around...it's like a hiking simulator, ha."

Note that this VG278HE monitor needs the glasses/emitter kit for 3D

The Asus VG278H model had a built in emitter and came with Glasses, but is no longer made/available:

Thanks very much for your detailed response and the links to those product pages. I will need to check what's available locally (in NZ) but I'm sure I can get the gear from somewhere...

I bet there have been all sorts of complaints and refunds following the launch of the G750 laptop models. All I wanted, and what I was sold, was a laptop that can play 3D natively. Having said that, Skyrim and Metro in 3D.... Wow!

You can 3D with red/blue glasses (works ok, but not true 3D). Your screen needs to have a refresh rate of 120Hz for being 3D capable. This way each eye gets 60Hz of refresh (the maximum physical refresh an eye can detect - even though most won't even see the 30Hz mark if we are not concentrating on it)
