Excerpt: Till now, most monitor releases have been carbon copy releases of technology that has been out for over three years. An image quality tweak here, a design tweak there was all the consumer could expect. But this monitor is different in a big way.

Excerpt: Stereoscopic 3D technology for PCs – not to be confused with 3D graphics – has been around for more than half a decade, courtesy of graphics processor manufacturer Nvidia, but due to a dearth of displays that do justice to the technology, consumers have been slow to adopt it.
