# 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 must be connected to both USB and Quadro 3-pin DIN Stereo socket. This setup works on Windows and nowadays Linux (consult this [http://cismm.cs.unc.edu/core-projects/visualization-and-analysis/setting-up-a-simple-stereo-system/ link], and [http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/346.35/README/xconfigoptions.html search this link for the word "USB"]. 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; cheaper and older ones can be found e.g. on EBay; they may require one of the [http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html long-term Legacy (Long Lived) Linux drivers].

# 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 3-pin DIN cable is difficult to find if you do not have one, and it is recommended that you splice your own. This author purchased a 3-pin mini-DIN connector here: [http://www.vetco.net/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=6588], spliced it onto a 2.5mm stereo audio cable like from here: [http://www.vetco.net/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=6952], using information adapted from this page explaining how to adapt connections for the older VESA standard for stereo here: [http://www.stereo3d.com/vesa3.htm] (it works quite well). Note that the 5V power line does ''not'' need to be connected as the receiver is powered by USB.

# The most affordable NVIDIA 3D Vision solution on Linux used to be a monitor with built-in IR emitter (for example BenQ XL2420TX or ASUS VG278HR), and a cheap Quadro, e.g. the K420 or FX380. 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). Unfortunately, monitors with built-in IR emitter are seemingly no longer produced (2017).

# [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.
