EVGA's 'InterView' dual-screen monitor evokes giddiness

EVGA's dual screen monitor, the InterView is announced.

I look at a lot of monitors. So many, in fact, that these days I immediately notice the smallest differences between them. Almost instinctively, I notice the bezel width, whether or not the panel slopes, and how easy the connections options are to access. I don't say this to brag; it's just that most monitors look so similar that I'm forced to find the smallest differences just to keep my job exciting.

So please forgive my utter elation and downright giddiness at EVGA's just-announced InterView Dual Monitor System.

The InterView is a dual-screen monitor with two rotatable 17-inch screens, each with a resolution of 1440x900. The monitors are mounted on a desktop stand that includes four USB ports, a mic input, a built-in Webcam, and a DMS video connection. The latter allows the video signal to be pumped to both monitors, thanks to the included DMS-to-dual-DVI cord.

Each monitor can rotate back 180 degrees to face the opposite direction, and according to EVGA, the onscreen image automatically inverts to appear right side up.

Other specs include a 500:1 contrast ratio, 8ms pixel response time, and a 200 candelas per square meter brightness.

We just got the InterView in this week, so look for a slideshow soon and a full review of the $649 display(s) soon after that. I now return to my extremely giddy testing.
