Zalman Trimon ZM-M240W review
If 3D is to really take off in the home, someone has to get both the technology and the pricing right. Nvidia’s active-shutter 3D Vision glasses cost £120 a pair – you’d best not sit on them – and that’s before you add the cost of a modern 120Hz TFT on top. At the other end of the scale sit Zalman’s Trimon polarised monitors, whose long-term strength is that replacing the glasses will only cost you a tenner.
Better still, the ZM-M240W is the first 24in TFT we’ve seen that’s capable of handling 3D. It’s a fairly plain-looking 1,920 x 1,080 display with DVI and D-SUB inputs, along with an audio connector for the weak integrated speakers. The glasses themselves feel as cheap as you’d expect, and to say you’ll look a bit of a nerd wearing them doesn’t really do them justice – they’re more Woody than Lily Allen.
