Looking for a new display for my Wii U. Has to be full 1080p but not too big. 19' - 24'. Just want it desk size as it will also be my computer monitor. Looked at a few TV's now that fit the criteria from Samsung and Vizio but they only output 60hz. I want atleast 120hz. Please help people.

EDIT: My bad. It deleted the page after I linked it. It's discontinued, but you can get one on eBay. I'm sure this TV best describes what kind of display you want.

You'll be set for some high spec display options, it's sleek, 3D, headphone jack and USB to charge the 3D glasses.
You can plug in the TV to a better stereo system, which I recommend, because the speakers are kind of weak. It doesn't come with a remote contoller, but the Wii U will pick it up on the Sony code.

120 Hz? Wii only displays in 60 Hz (I'm sure you know that but I'm guessing you want to watch movies in 24 FPS too?)

I suggest the Sony DN1030(or the 4K model), too, and I would get the new Sony 4K if I could. I also have a Playstation 3 and Sony speakers.
I just don't like the GAMING branch of Sony as much. It's fine if people like PS, but the BS on which console is best has to stop.
I have my reasons for liking Nintendo, and others have their reasons for liking PS. Fine.
I think it's the fact that I like Nintendo and Microsoft gaming machines, but not Sony gaming machines that really irks most when it's brought up.

I mainly use the PS3 as a media center, which is basically never. I have a PC, too, but I mainly play video games over anything else.

Even better, according to that Amazon page the Playstation TV has 240hz instead of the 120hz Scar said. Dunno if I want it though, any other options?

So the Wii U only outputs 60hz anyway? Answer that and it will answer a lot of questions.

Thinking about getting this
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN22F5000-22-Inch-1080p-60Hz/dp...

Or this

It's really up to you, bro. Ya, I forgot it was 240hz...
I was just trying to point out, that it basically exceeds every expectation you wanted for your display. You can use the 3D for your PC, and possibly for Wii U once they incorporate that(Iwata stated 3D would be added once/if 3D TVs have an adoption rate of at least 30%)
I think it would be better to just buy the PS 3D display TV, though.
I had it for a bit, but I decided to get a bigger TV. If your mind is set on a smaller display, it would be worth paying the extra $10 or so(in comparison to the ones in your link) for 3D with the PS display, IMO.
There isn't any refresh lag with Wii U. The screen is small enough to load everything on screen while still maintaining the 240hz.
I personally want a 36-39" 3D TV, but none of the sales that exist now were around back in December.

EDIT: The only downside to buying the PS display in comparison to the TVs you linked, is that you can't connect coaxial and composite. So you can't connect yellow/white/red cables, or use a digital antenna.

Yes the Wii outputs in 60 Hz (well 60 FPS in North America/Japan, 50 FPS in Europe/Australia?)

And Wii U outputting 3D? wat.
AC3 can output in 3D but it's like the 3D on YouTube. You either need to learn how to cross your eyes or own a pair of red/blue 3D glasses, etc. but it's not the same as the current 3D technology we have now. It doesn't output the kind of 3D you need active shutter glasses for like the PS3 or other blu-ray players.

As for the TVs..both look like good options. I didn't look at the specs of each too much but both are well-priced and have good reviews. I personally would get the one with less input delay if you can find out

The 3D on Assassin's Creed 3 is GamePad only, and you need the anaglyph(red/blue) glasses as far as I know. For the size of screen you want, the PS display would be the best one, unless you need coaxial or composite connections, especially with all the other features those other ones don't have.
26" or lower HDTVs will almost never have lag(I've never seen it, but smaller displays generally show stuff faster, because the image fits the screen at a faster rate). I used to play my Wii console on a 26" Element, and there was no lag.

I never tried it but there were quite a few options in the TV itself to display a 3D signal. The "cross eye" method is the one where they display the images side-by-side right? That's one of the most commonly used standards for sending a 3D signal. They sacrifice half of the resolution to fit the second image required for 3D into the same sized signal. The other way is interlaced where you put the left image and right image in alternate lines.

This is what the 3DS does. If you send a 3D signal to a 2D TV or a 3D TV that thinks its a 2D signal for whatever reason that's what you'll see. The alternate frames or whatever tech the display uses bit is done in the display itself not the source. Confusingly the source CAN be alternate frames but that's beside the point. The red/blue 3D option is an option that most games supporting 3D have used for a long time. It's purely there for people who don't have a 3D display

It isn't, you are wrong

Assassin's Creed III does 3D on a stereoscopic 3DTV? I know FOR SURE it does anaglyph 3D on the GamePad, but 3D on a 3D TV is different. Link? This is actually something that can be linked.

Do you have the game? Do some experimenting yourself. I've done some googling and found some random forums where people have claimed to get it working but you're apparently the expert. Go ahead.

I don't have Assassin's Creed 3, or a 3D TV. Will you buy me that stuff? I'll gladly test it since I already have a Wii U.
Like I said, I've only heard of anaglyph 3D on the GamePad. I'm actually Googling around right now, and there is no 3D on stereoscopic as far as I can see, and I was looking pretty hard when I had the PS display, because I wanted the game just for that.
I'll keep looking.

I just found a site that claimed AC3 was indeed stereoscopic 3D for Wii U. So ya.
EDIT: Also, there was a French YouTube video that showed the 3D options. I'm not trying to argue wether it does or not. There just isn't anyway to know unless you have the game. It will do anaglyph regardless(duh, any display can), but since more people have gotten the gane, we can actually see the menus and such.
At launch, it was only apparent that it only did anaglygh, so I didn't really care.

Positive experience

I have the Wii U version. It does support 3D. It is not frame packed though, your choices are inficolor (Which actually works on the gamepad too, that's kind of neat), top-bottom, or side by side. It looks pretty good side by side and I didn't notice a huge loss in resolution (Even though it was halved).

Negative experience

Sadly, the wii u version only offers side to side, top to bottom, and the cruddy inficolor. The difference between the frame packing and side/side and top/bottom is immense, as essentially, with frame packing the game resolution is dropped 50%, while with the side to side and top to bottom, it goes to 25%. The 360 version looks amazing in 3d, but the wii u version looks abysmal in 3d.

(and the latter is technically wrong BTW but still confirms that 3D works on the Wii U)
