The Monster Vision Max 3D glasses are a bit of a work around for the problem that 3D displays have with compatibility. Currently you can purchase a variety of 3D glasses but the hitch is that those glasses will only work on a very limited number of displays. You won't be able to mix and match glasses and displays, instead you currently need to buy different glasses for each display you want to use. Monster will sell you their glasses along with a base station that can adjust the timing of the glasses to match a variety of different displays. A nice idea, if only a

When you think of 30" monitors it tends to be Dell and their 3007WFP/3008WFP
that people think of first but HP is hoping to put and end to this with their new ZR30w. It is 29.7" viewable diagonally with a 2560x1600 resolution and a MRSP of $1,299 which makes it fairly inexpensive compared to other 30" monitors. HP has tried for a balance with the lower price, they didn't make sacrifices on the screen quality but the lack of HDMI or components plugs as well as no real onscreen display obviously contribute to the lower price.

AnandTech will be the first to admit that there are some sacrifices you have to accept to use the Sceptre X270W-1080P, but most of those will not have any effect on enjoyment during gaming. Consider that a single high end Dell 30" will run you about $1,300 while you can pick up three of these Sceptre LCDs for under

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

The $250 Samsung B2430is a 24" TN LCD panel with a native 1920 x 1080 resolution. According to InsideHW there are a few flaws, the swivel-less base and the fact that the monitor does not tilt past 90 degrees will make a lot of users turn away in disgust. Samsung tries to overcome this with a feature called MagicAngle which is supposed

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

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.
