I didn't see this advertised in their ad but I found it looking through the video game section. It says coming soon, which means it will be online for their BF sale. Free shipping and it seems it is online only, as store pickup is not available.

I know many people have waited for it to drop this low. Now is your chance to get one.

Got to love the "oh my, even though I knew this was garbage from countless reviews stating so, I didn't expect it to actually be garbage" comments. Keep them coming.
Just got mine. First impression, this thing is built very nice. It is thin and has a glass panel front which is terrible for glare but is my absolute favorite coating because it produces the best picture if you can control the light in your room. I noticed that there were some minor hdmi or video issues the first 3 or so minutes but after that everything has worked perfect for me. I gamed on it for a good hour and a half. The back was hardly warm. Slap a 5 year best buy warranty on this and it is one of the best deals of the year. I am wondering if i even need my 60'' black friday vizio now...

It really depends on luck. I've heard certain people actually got an upgrade since thats the only thing they had. So its really YMMV
I had the warranty on a no name TV and it died, they replaced it with a Samsung of equal size as long as I bought another warranty which if I remember correctly was around 25 dolllars.

I think it depended on the stock on hand and the mood of the manager

Exactly. That's why I think the Bestbuy warranty is better. I'd much rather have whichever new technology is available a few years down the line that a $100 refund.

Okay, mixed feelings about this on a computer with a Nvidia GTX 670.

The issue is, Nvidia doesn't support it, and thus it won't work right off the bat with 3D Vision. You need to install Nvidia's 3DTV first, but that doesn't support this display either. You can manually install the driver for the display to override the EDID to get it to work... but only for R200 drivers. Nvidia R300 drivers blocked this work around, and since I need those for my current-gen graphics card, I'm out of luck there. That means Nvidia 3D Vision gaming is out, but 3D movies over HDMI still work.

Even if you get the games to work, HDMI 3D is limited by bandwidth, so you'll be stuck at 24 fps for 1080p. You can only get 60 fps by going down to 720p.

I did eventually get 3D gaming to work using side-by-side 3D from TriDef. However, this cuts either your vertical or horizontal resolution by half.

Anyone having trouble running this on an nvidia optimus computer? To use this with nvidia 3d vision, apparently you need to install custom drivers. the problem is that this driver keeps installing on the integrated card rather than the nvidia card. anyone have the same problem and/or know how to fix it?

I received my display, and found the monitor/display in fact was used/refurbished(the frame wasn't covered with protective film and there were noticeable scratches), everything else(like cables, glasses) looked brand-new in sealed bags.
Should I report this to Bestbuy? I know there is NO more in-stock with bestbuy, so there is little chance I can exchange for a new one. If I report for discount because of "used" item, I am worrying about the $20 4-year protection plan I purchased with the order, and I heard we'd better have plan on this and the plan doesn't cover "used" items. Any suggestion?
Thanks!
How did you figure it was a refurb?

Is there any way I could get 3d video to work with my 2010 Macbook Pro?

Was surprised to discover that these did not sell out last weekend... saw 6 at best buy today and they had some of the most pristine packaging I've seen on these in a long time. $180 again of course. Sad story these things... Hopefully they are cancellations and not young inventory.

That sucks. I have Nvidia 3DTV Play and it works great on my Samsung 3DTV 50" plasma TV. Guess I will just sell my Sony playstation 3D monitor.

Mine was shipped in retail box.

No box, no plastic bag.

Retail box arrived torn and ripped.

Mine too. It also had a hole in the box. I don't know if I even want to open it.

came in retail box, but inside is undamaged and the screen is awesome! 3d gaming is so surreal!

I think this is a good representation of the resellers on slickdeals:

Perusing eBay auctions for this item I noted someone with a make best offer option. Assuming he was from slickdeals I made an offer, putting slickdeals in the 'terms' box as a joke. His reply?

Would Radeon cards fare any better?

I use tridef with amd card and it worked perfectly fine. No need to press the 3d button at the back of the monitor. For some games it's not that great, but most fps games are awesome.
