# The quality of Nvidia 3D Vision 2 is better than that of Zalman, because Zalman stereo means halved vertical resolution.

# The Nvidia 3D vision emitter requires connection to both USB and Quadro 3-pin DIN Stereo connector. This setup only works on Windows, not Linux! 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.

# Linux traditionally needs the DIN 3-pin connector found on the high end Quadros and [http://www.nuvision3d.com/the60gx.html NuVision] or [http://www.reald-corporate.com/scientific CrystalEyes] stereo glasses and emitter.

# For Linux, a Nvidia 3D vision emitter "workaround" requires the DIN 3-pin connector found on the high end Quadros and [http://www.nuvision3d.com/the60gx.html NuVision] or [http://www.reald-corporate.com/scientific CrystalEyes] stereo glasses and emitter.

# The currently most affordable NVIDIA 3D Vision solution on Linux (2013+ workaround) is to buy a monitor with built-in IR emitter (for example BenQ XL2420TX or ASUS VG278HR), and a cheap Quadro, e.g. the FX380 or K420. The latter has a Dual-Link DVI (DVI-D) 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 openGL Quad Buffered Stereo'' on Linux (on Windows neither).

# [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.
