Zalman ZM-M215W 3D Monitor is, as the name hints at, a 21.5" LCD with a 120MHz refresh rate allowing it to display 3D looking images using circular polarization. techPowerUp tested out the quality of this monitor with the help of nVIDIA's active shutter glasses in their latest review. One of the biggest hurdles they had to overcome was the installation of the iZ3D driver, as a default installation will leave you with a timeout error and no 3D. Once that hurdle was overcome their experience was quite positive even with a very limited vertical viewing angle.
"The ZM-M215W is the part of the newest line-up of 3D monitors by Zalman. Instead of plucking
down hundreds of dollars on NVIDIA shutter glasses and being bound to NVIDIA GPUs, you can
pluck down hundreds over a normal 2D monitor of the similar size, but be free from the
shackles, allowed to use any GPU of your choice. Is that still worth it? We put on the glasses
and take a really close look."
