Up Close - The Monitors
In the same way that the two GPUs get us excited, what's not to like about three 1080P, 3D capable monitors all piled up. As they are all the same we'll only show one for now.
The box contains all you'd hope to find, DVI lead, VGA lead power etc. As well as a pair of the glasses, which we'll look at on a later page.
The 'Stealth' part of the name becomes clear when you look at the base of the XFX Eyefinity stand. It's so close to the looks of a Lockheed F-117 that we almost expected it to fly. It's supremely easy to set up too. Just inset the pole (middle of the left picture) in the base, slide the monitor arms (top of left picture) down, screw on tight, fit the VESA mounts to the monitors and that's pretty much it. It actually took longer to photograph it and hoover the stray polystyrene off than it did to build it.
As for the monitors tehy are all fairly standard to look at. We all know what a monitor looks like by now and the LG one has a nice thin bezel to minimise the blind spots when gaming in Eyefinity.
As the owner of a monitor free from front mounted OSD buttons it's nice to have them back round the front. One of those decisions that seems minor but usability is everything. Remember these have been chosen knowing that they'll be mounted next to each other, so it's imperative that everything is within easy reach. Finally we have the VESA mount, something that not a lot of people pay attention to when sourcing their display, but if you value your ergonomics it's vital, especially given the hideously poor quality of the stands that come with 99% of monitors.
