Review: 3D - are we there yet?


Conclusion

Aspire 5745DG is among the rare laptops, if not devices in general, that boasts 3D capabilities.

Our test model, Acer Aspire 5745DG-5454G50Bnks comes with 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 450M CPU, 4GB of DDR3 memory and Nvidia Geforce GT 425M graphics. Intel’s integrated graphics is turned off by default so Nvidia’s discrete GPU runs all the time. According to Nvidia, Optimus technology is not currently featured on 3D Vision supporting laptops.

If you want 3D, then Aspire 5745DG is a good start. Its price is definitely lower than that of a 3D television (around €1000) and Nvidia 3D Vision and shutter glasses will give you all the 3D you need. The 15.6’’ display will provide nice fun for playing in 2D or 3D, although the pleasure of watching a 3D movie in two will require purchase of another Nvidia’s shutter glasses. 

Today’s technology provides for a pretty nice illusion of 3D space on a flat display, but it is something that you’ll have to see for yourself and make up your own mind. If you cannot afford a 3D laptop or 3D TV, then at least visit a 3D cinema to know what we are talking about.

Our general impression is that 3D really impresses most that see it. Unfortunately, the impression is not strong enough to make all of them splash out to own it. However, if you’re a 3D enthusiast and crave for a 3D laptop, then there’s no reason why AS 5745DG shouldn’t make your list.

Good concept but I would only use the 3D for movies.

would like to see 3D in one of the Alienware high-end laptops.
