This looks promising. Wonder if the 2D to 3D conversion is better than what's currently available from TV sets and Bluray players.

The unit looks great. But I can't find any stores or reviews of it yet.

It looks like they are on presale right now from the mfg website. I think I read somewhere they will be available at the end of July. Pretty sure it was July anyways. They have an interactive demo that shows how it should work. If you get one, let me know how it works. I'm interested in using it for Call of Duty on my XBox.

This review is sorta 'ho-hum' about it. Shame. I was expecting a decent bump in 2D->3D performance based on price and manufacturer (iogear $199) from something like the monoprice unit.

Has anyone purchased this yet? I see it is now available and was wondering how good it works.

Don't waste your money. I sent mine back. Maybe I was expecting to much. But to be honest it did not do much at all. I tried several Blu Rays and DVD's, both animated and live action. Just was not worth the money. I have a Monprice on the way. I will report back the difference.

Recieved my Monoprice today. After watching only 2 of the very same DVD's I can say the difference is night and day! The Monoprice blows this thing away for 1/2 the price. Surprising thing is the IOGEAR is a bigger unit, yet the Monoprice is MUCH heavier in weight.

I bought one from amazon and returned it the next day...very unstable when used with multiple inputs, picture wash out, artefacts like you would not beleive...

But....i have to admit that it works very effeciently with 3d bluray player, ps3.

Wow....after returning the crappy iogear 3d complete, i ordered and received my 3d Creator from Monoprice. I must say that i am very impressed with the unit so far. 2d to 3d is way better than the iogear, but the main feature for me is the ability to pass sbs to my acer 5360h...Now i can buy reasonably priced dlp-link glasses.

Thumbs up to Monoprice

On my way to future shop for that DMP-BDT 220....smile.gif

Ok let me wrap-up my input on the matter...

Here is my set-up;

Acer 5360 hd
Monoprice 3d creator
Panasonic DMP-BDT 220 bluray player
1 tb fujitsu hd, external enclosure (usb)
Benq dlp-link glasses
Sainsonic dlp-link glasses

Picture quality is awesome with bluray discs. I've set-up the bluray output to sbs and the monoprice just sends it converted to the acer (dlp-link).
Also the Panny acts as a media player so all my bd and dvd collection ripped onto the hdd is watchable and the fun of it is that no computer is needed smile.gif

Finally !!!
