Cracking open the iZ3D 22-inch LCD monitor

iZ3D LCD monitor teardown

TechRepublic has been testing and reviewing the iZ3D monitor for about a month now. After creating a First Look gallery and then publishing a review on how well the 3D technology translates to real game play, we felt it was time to crack it open to see what was inside. The folks at iZ3D were very gracious and brave to allow us to do this and we appreciate the gesture.

The iZ3D Web site said we would find two LCD panels inside, but we were not sure how they would be configured. We envisioned elaborate optical trickery was needed to get the 3D effect, but we found the engineering to be rather straightforward. Scroll through the images and see for yourself.
