I have the Dell xps l702x with the 3d screen, been after one of these for a while just to try it out, never seen below about £80, anybody know if this is the right thing even?
Duke Nukem. What a let down. Hot deal though.

Yes you need the genuine Nvidia glasses, the transmitter is built into the screen, you just just need the glasses.
The reason these are starting to drop in price is the 3D Vision 2's are out which are supposedly better.

Now the glasses on their own are £61 from Play.com

The Vision 2 glasses (which are backwards compatible with existing 3D Vision systems) are £80.

The new ones use a bigger lens and allow the image to be brighter.
Never seen this cheaper!
Edit: It doesn't look like it can. Nvm.

Does anyone know if this will work with M11x R1, if I Connect it to 3d monitor or Television? Will I be able to use the current Dell/Nvidia Hybrid driver from Dell. Thanks in advance.

The graphics card needs to support 3D aswell, you'd need 2 dvi or HDMI outs for the monitor aswell.
Duke's not really a good selling point
Has anyone tried these glasses out and know if the quality is any good? I've also got a dell l702x with 3d screen but not tried the 3d out yet simply because the glasses have always been too expensive.

I'm tempted with the vision2 ones at £80 but only if the 3d is going to be good.
do you need a 3D monitor for these? I remember the old skool ELSA 3D glasses but they only worked on CRT monitors and then LCD took over making them useless!!

Actually, the newer glasses are just bigger lenses with a redesigned frame to allow less surrounding light in so it'll look better in the daytime or with the lights on. They work exactly the same as the first generation glasses which is why all first and second gen glasses, monitors and emitters are cross compatible. I'm guessing it's more of an end of life product thing so they just want to shift old stock. The big deal with 3D vision 2 is lightboost which is all the monitor, nothing to do with the glasses.

Yes
I guess these will come down even more since the revised V2 is out
You'll need to ensure your monitor is 120Hz for these to work. Most LCD / LED panels are not 120Hz
Worth it just for Duke Nukem alone (_;)

No, you only need 1 DVI port or 1 HDMI port.
All Nvidia cards (released in the last 5 years at least) support 3D vision as long as you have a 120Hz monitor. The only issue with an older card is you will not see good performance in modern games as 3D vision effectively halves the frame rate (because it is generating each image twice).

I first got 3D Vision with my old 8800GT and it played all games perfectly at the time with max settings
I then upgraded to a 270 GTX and all games were fine at max settings.
Now I have 2 470 GTX's in SLI and everything is still fine at max settings (1 would be enough for most games though).

So as you can see, you do need to keep upgrading your graphics card as games get better graphics, there is no point sitting on an old graphics card & having 3D vision unless you are only interested in nostalgia. Games such as Soul Reaver for example are awesome in 3D

they've also made them more comforable to wear with headphones. I have a set at the moment along with a 3d monitor, but I cannot wear them with my headphones as they create a gap between the headphone cup and my ear, making it sound poor
I just want the emitter, so if anyone fancies buying them for the glasses only I will pay them £30 for the emitter ?

I have dell XPS with bulit in 3D screen, so don't need emitter, we can discuss it if you wish?

Stand corrected on the graphics card and DVI front, but 1 HDMI doesn't have enough bandwidth for 1080p @120hz.

As the OP is running a laptop, unless they have DVI or Display port they may be stuck.
How does this thing work??
I have ordered one set, if anyone needs just emitter, please get in touch.

You should check the 3D Vision Requirements Page from NVIDIA for a decent clarification.

Basically you need 4 things:
13732486-cDsr5
and the Dabs deal is 1 of those 4.
