So, we’ve moved on from 3D televisions to 3D computer monitors, and while there are a few companies that are offering up some decent options, we decided it’d be prudent to take a gander at the Hanns G HS233. After all, doesn’t 2D suddenly seem lifeless and boring? Whether you have 3D movies (or games) or not, there’s no doubt that the content will continue to come, and those without a 3D monitor will be left wondering what happened to their seemingly incredible computer visuals…
The HS233 is a great unit for the money. The monitor can handle just about any 3D you toss at it, but there’s a downside to the low price you’ll likely see attached: it doesn’t include the 3D package that Asus’ comparable model does. That explains the lowered cost, so if you decide on picking this monitor up, you’ll need to supplement it with a 3D package. That’s a bummer, isn’t it?
When you aren’t viewing 3D content, the picture is incredible. Those that are looking for a quality monitor that they can later upgrade to 3D may find this unit to be their monitor soul-mate. But, bear in mind that it’s a little wobbly at times, and adjusting it may be cumbersome (on the stand). In the end, if you want to get a monitor for 3D, this can do the trick, but don’t be fooled into thinking that the lowered price will give you everything the Asus model will. Instead, you’ll need to shell out a bit more, but in terms of performance, the HS233 is a great monitor that should give you plenty of room to grow into 3D.
