27-inch HR274H monitor features what Acer dubs as its own “chip-based solution”


Looks like the 3D crazy seem to be having the last laugh as more and more manufacturers are not only embracing the technology but also seem to be looking for new ways to rub it in the faces of the non-believers.

This latest bit of technology from Acer utilizes what they dub to be their own “chip-based solution” which will convert all 2D content to 3D in real time. The 27-inch HR274H monitor also comes with a set of passive, polarized 3D glasses. The technology, which can be toggled on and off from the TV itself comes at a hefty price of $599 and is, apart from the conversion, a relatively normal monitor with no specs to write home about. According to Engadget the panel will also be of just a standard 1920×1080 resolution.
