While there's always plenty of room for skepticism
when delving into the realm of 3D, we tended to think LG knew what it was doing when showing off its oh-so-intriguing 42-inch 2D/3D LCD monitor
. The mysterious display now has a proper moniker (Flatron M4200D) and a bevy of specs to boot, including a "Full HD" 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, 500cd/m2 brightness, 8-millisecond response time, and a 1600:1 contrast ratio. The 3D filter is reportedly one of "lenticular" nature, which provides auto-stereoscopic images (similar to the iFusion 3D
) to onlookers without the need for style-hindering glasses. Of course, attempting to capture 3D imagery on camera is a lesson in futility, so we'll have reserve judgment for its effectiveness until we can eye one ourselves, and hopefully this "unique feature" won't give LG (or M4200D viewers) the same headaches that Philips experienced
when trying something nonpareil.
