If you lack the welding skills of Colleen and don't have one in your circle of friends and family, setting up EyeFinity with three monitors can be a little difficult. Levelling three LCD displays can be a bit of a challenge even with identical monitors and the fact that they can move independently
can cause headaches. There are various small companies that offer triple monitor stands but finding one when you are not familiar with the market is daunting. Tweaktown offer

Zalman's new Zm-M220W
LCD is a 22" stereoscopic display, giving you a 3D view with the help of nVIDIA's standard stereoscopic driver, but not their active shutter glasses. This LCD does all the work, allowing you to use passive glasses to enjoy the 3D effects. OCMODSHOP tried it out at several trade shows and they offer you a look at the display as well as a list of all of the games that are currently compatible. The monitor runs about

Panel technology is something that should get more recognition that it does now. Shopping for a new display tends to be a simple process of picking a size of display and then looking for a good deal, but doing your research before buying a monitor is just as important as researching any other part in your machine.
A Fistfull of Dollars...
Tired of waiting to dump that old CRT based TV and get a shiny, new widescreen LCD panel? Well, the time may finally be here to do that for a large portion of consumers. With LCD panel prices dropping, and old models being phased out for new. I was able to get my hands on the LG 47LH30 widescreen high definition TV for a very attractive price, and thought that I would share my experiences with our readers.

The most important things in display reviews have changed over the years, from SVGA or VGA to LCD or CRT to more recent times when the big differences have been limited to native resolution and screen size. There are other statistics which are important, like response times, brightness and viewing angles, as well as the colour gamut if you are into graphics design. Thanks to nVIDIA and a few other companies, the next big thing has arrived which is depth, or 3D. The ViewSonic VX2268WM and

When I'm on the go covering technology events or press conferences, my 15" laptop rarely has enough real estate compared to when I'm at the office using my dual 24" LCDs. Sometimes, I just need a few more inches of space to monitor e-mail, instant messaging, and even my MP3 playlist. One relatively inexpensive solution to this dilemma is Lilliput's 7" mini USB monitor.

After pinching your pennies and pouring over reviews and specs, you finally bought yourself an LCD panel with a slim body. You get it home and realize that the TV mount you got for it is 2 to 3 times as thick. Nothing quite kills the space and aesthetic of your beautiful display by having it protrude off the wall.

If you though the display connection battle was already complex with the inclusion of DisplayPort connections as well as HDMI, DVI, dual-link DVI and the legacy VGA ports still showing up on motherboards, be prepared for yet another option. With the upgrade to USB 3.0 and bandwidth as high as 4.8 Gbps, it is very possible that USB 3.0 powered displays will start to filter out in early 2010. There are already USB 2.0 displays available (we reviewed one from EVGA here) but they have been limited in frame rates and resolutions because

Is response time actually involved in LCD picture blur? Do those fancy new motion enhancement features actually degrade your image quality? Is it actually important to your eyes that you can spot motion blur in still images? These are the questions that ExtremeTech decided to answer when they investigate the issue of motion blur on LCD screens. Their testing involved eight LCDs, two plasmas, one Sony Professional HD Trinitron Studio Monitor and a CRT
for reference. Read on to
