# '''3D Vision Pro''' is ''not'' what you want, this seems to be for projectors, and is expensive.

# '''3D Vision Pro''' is ''not'' what you want, this is for professional CAD/CAM applications, and is expensive.
# Quality of Nvidia 3D Vision is better than that of Zalman, because Zalman stereo means halved vertical resolution.

# The Nvidia 3D vision emitter that requires connection via USB and nvidia quadro 3-pin connector only works on Windows, not Linux!
# The Nvidia 3D vision emitter that connects via USB only works on Windows, not Linux. Linux needs the DIN 3-pin connector which is only on the high end Quadro cards. The cheapest (2014+) Nvidia Quadro with 3-pin DIN Stereo connector is the K4200 (http://www.nvidia.de/object/quadro-desktop-gpu-specs-de.html) which starts at ~ €700.

# The currently (2013+) most affordable NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 solution on Linux is to buy one of the monitors with built-in IR emitter (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 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! GeForce cards (instead of Quadro) ''do not give Stereo'' on Linux.

# [http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-displays.html The Nvidia page that names monitors with built-in emitter] also has not changed for years.  http://geizhals.eu/?cat=monlcd19wide now has a "inkl. 3D-emitter" attribute. This currently only returns the Asus 278HR which can only be bought in Poland, or through EBay.
