    Useless? Enables AMD HD3D technology support on DisplayPort panels, such as Samsung 750 and 950 series 3D displays

    Or that did nothing at all?

    That's what I am saying. It was already working with the 11.5 hotfix drivers on Displayport but with more ghosting than any other connection method. So I was assuming that 11.8 was an improvement in some way. It isn't!

    I found a way to get things a bit better with DisplayPort but once again this is nothing to do with the new drivers...just following on a previous posters discovery.

    In DP you can set 100 or 120Hz for the desktop. Set it to 100Hz. Then it forces a switch to 120 when in 3D. Doing this makes the 3D auto-detect properly and ghosting is reduced. I still see ghosting in one eye, but its better than the severe ghosting seen otherwise.

    I still think the firmware on the 950 is flakey. I think it has issues syncing the glasses correctly and auto-detecting 3D. I am fairly sure the firmware is not user upgradeable. Perhaps the 750 has been delayed to improve the firmware and may end up being the better monitor!

    The ETA for the 750 is now 31/08/11 by the product page. I don't really mind if it is because they are fixing/tweaking stuff.

    It is most likely supply issues to Samsung, after the tsunami earlier this year, a lot of the tech needed was washed away

    The 950D looks amazing. I am in the market for a 27inch monitor and have been tempted by the Hazro's available but the 120hz is very appealing. Not too fussed about the 3D aspect but would use it now and then.
    To me the 950D seems perfect for my uses and it it must be miles better that my current and rather old 24inch Iiyama.

    how you finding the SG 3700? , as ive read a few reviews about reflections being too bad, and it seems that despite using batteries the SG 3150 (that come with the 950D)or SG 3100 that are used with the samsumg 2011 lcds get the best reviews?

    I originaly wanted the ssg 3300 but maybe a mistake of the seller i received the 3700 for the same price wich look too futurist for me.
    The 3700 are quiet good but some people have to use it in a dark atmosphere because the sides of the eyes are not protected from light.For me there's no problem even with light around but i guess it's a matter of person.
    The experience felt with the two glasses are for me very comparable and the fact that i can plug the 3700 to usb and also that they 're auto powered on is a plus.
    I've just finish Mafia 2 and it was a marvellous experience,really impressive,now i put my hands on battlefield bad company 2 and it's a pleasure too very far of my past experience with acer's screens.
    Watch RIO the 3D movie yesterday and it was quiet perfect and amazed my girlfriend.
    So if you have any questions i'm here
    ciao

    Did OCUK just put the price up from 599 to 620 ??????
    ridiculous price for a TN pannel, and from reports around the web the ghosting/crosstalk is utter disgraceful when in 3d.
    and finaly backlight bleeding is terrible on these over priced pieces of junk.

    Hmm just about managed to convince myself to get this but then price jumped up! So guess I will be waiting until sept to get this:

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-165-SA&groupid=17&catid=1120&subcat=

    £600 was a little steep so that £20 was the straw that broke the camel's back for me.

    is there much difference in the image quality between the 750 and the 950, very tempted with the 750 but just wanted to know why the 950 was more expensive.

    I hope not for image quality, its just the stand and the dvi i think, i wonder how much longer the 750 will be delayed, well i have plenty of other stuff to do whilst i wait.

    I just tried the hack for the Nvidia 3D solution and well, it works.. but it is 100x worse than tridef for this monitor... Epic ghosting for both sides makes it very uncomfortable unless you're standing right next to the object...

    So in other words, its not worth the effort to get that working if it is not already... Tridef is better for this monitor.

    fleabay got a few korean dealers, delivery price bit of a rip off but better than customs charges from U-S!! Ordering from reliable sources. (much below than any other uk based comapanies selling 950's)
    Decided to stick with amd for price/performance factor, however will be waiting for 7xxx series

    The hack doesn't work for me as Windows can't find the correct drivers.

    Can you tell me what drivers your "Simulated USB HID Receiver device" loads?

    Cheers
