It might seem like the industry just finally figured out how to standardize stereoscopic 3D, but HDMI 1.4 and universal glasses aren't enough to help you pick the right screen for a PC. Unless you're working with native 3D content, you'll need special drivers from the likes of Nvidia, DDD or iZ3D to add perspective to your videos and games... unless you've got one of the new 27-inch monitors that Acer announced this week. The Acer HR274H is a passive 1080p TN panel with a "chip-based solution" to convert 2D content to 3D in real time with no additional software required — apparently, you just select 3D on the monitor itself and have your multimedia pop to life. However, given the relative quality of 2D to 3D conversion solutions that we've seen before and a wallet-whacking $599 price, we'll have to stay skeptical until we try it for ourselves.
