LG’s D2542P-PN is more suited to console playing and movie watching when in 3D mode, but as a straight monitor there’s much better value to be had elsewhere.
…. 3D is achieved in two separate ways on LG’s monitor; either via LG’s included “TriDef” software, or for external devices, through the monitor’s OSD. Mac users are sadly left out in the cold, and LG wastefully splits its software across two CDs instead of a single DVD: software on one, manual and monitor driver on the other.
Its TriDef 3D portal is a media centre-style application, allowing playback of movies and viewing of images. Its bare minimum stuff that simply splits an image into an interleaved version, and isn’t the most intuitive interface we’ve used either — but it works.
