Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other medium monitors that came out more than two years ago, the CB280HK is not 3D compatible.

If you want a PC display that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the XL2720[pl_1548412_price], or the BL2710[pl_1729060_price] both from Benq or the Asus VG278[plb_1410103_price].

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC screen and we think the 272P4[pl_1489468_price], or the 271P4QPJ[pl_1445410_price] both from Philips or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price] is also worth considering.
