# '''3D Vision Pro''' is ''not'' what you want, this seems to be for projectors, and is expensive.
# Quality is much better than Zalman and somewhat better than CRTs

# Quality of Nvidia 3D Vision is better than that of Zalman
 
# Compatible monitors are mentioned at www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-displays.html but this website does not seem to be updated. There are 5 passive monitors (needing a separate emitter) at http://www.heise.de/preisvergleich/?cat=monlcd19wide&xf=3135_passiv#xf_top .

# The Nvidia 3D vision emitter that connects via USB only works on Windows, not Linux. Linux needs the DIN connector which is only on the high end Quadro cards.

# The currently (2013+) best NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 solution on Linux is to buy one of the monitors with built-in emitter from http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-displays.html (we have the BenQ XL2420TX), and a cheap Quadro, e.g. (2013) the FX380 or (2015) K420. The latter has a Dual-Link DVI and a HDMI/Displayport outlet, so can drive the stereo monitor, and an additional monitor. This solution avoids the USB/3-pin hassle altogether. See below for xorg.conf! We found that using a GeForce card instead of Quadro ''does not work'' on Linux.

# www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-displays.html names monitors with built-in emitter. None of these are sold any more in Germany or the EU, it seems - the NVidia page has not changed for at least the last two years. But: As of January 20, 2015 http://www.heise.de/preisvergleich/?cat=monlcd19wide&xf=3135_3D-f%E4hig%7E3135_aktiv#xf_top shows 8 active 3D-capable monitors; ASUS VG248QE and VG287HE and VG278HR, Acer GN246HL and Predator XB240HAbpr and HS244HQbmii, BenQ XL2430T, Philips 273G3DHSB. All of these are 24-27" and cost between 205 and 490€.

# cheap Quadro cards with dual-link DVI-D or DisplayPort work well. Quadro 380, 400, 420 and 600 have been reported to work on CCP4BB. Make sure the card can do dual-link DVI if your monitor has only DVI input. Any card (including the "Windows only" ones!) listed at http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-pro-requirements.html#Quadro should work if a) it can do dual-link DVI if the monitor has only DVI input, and b) if the monitor has built-in emitter. DisplayPort is fine with the BenQ XL2420TX.
