HP 2311gt review: 3D on the (relative) cheap side

The HP 2311gt offers 3D for a reasonable price, but is it worth it?

The HP 2311gt has surprisingly convincing 3D for its price. Josh Miller/CNET

Not going to beat around the bush here: the HP 2311gt offers passive 3D for only $260 (at the time of this review). From my experience, that's a pretty good price for a 3D monitor.

Sure, the 3D effect requires that you sit at least 2.5 feet away from the screen, but when it works, it's actually surprisingly convincing.

The question is: is it worth it?

The HP 2311x is pretty much the same monitor, except without 3D features; however, it costs a full $90 less. While $260 may be a good deal for a 3D monitor, you're paying a somewhat fat premium for it.

Still, it's one of the cheapest ways to experience 3D content, this side of a $16 movie ticket. Check the full review for more details.
