Now let’s delve into the CX620 3D’s 3D playback capability. The biggest hindrance to the CX 620′s otherwise enjoyable experience is it’s line polarized LCD display on which I could make out individual lines whenever there was a contrasting image on screen. So basically if it was too bright or too dark, the screen seemed fine, but where the dark and light blended, the lines were clearly visible. Unfortunately this is not something I can show you with a DSLR, but I did manage to get a pronounced effect of these unblending lines while wearing the 3D glasses.
Basically the CX620 3D recreates a 3D image from 2D, using software emulation. And while it was extremely difficult to get my hands on Avatar in 3D, since the laptop doesn’t have a bluray drive, even then, the movie looked really bizarre due to the lines. It’s a very uncomfortable experience, watching anything in 3D on the MSI CX620 3D.
While the MSI CX620 3D is a decent all round laptop, it really disappoints in its 3D playback performance. For this price range, you can easily find better alternatives with marginally higher specifications from MSI’s other range of laptops.
