It emits...

There it is. The built-in 3D emitter is adjustable and negates the need for a separate USB-connected emitter.

Swivel is included as a feature, but from the effort it takes to actually rotate the monitor, you may feel a slight desire to reach for a bottle of WD-40.

The power of one...pair of glasses

The VG278H comes with a pair of Nvidia's 3D Vision Kit 2 glasses. The glasses have a more comfortable fit and do a much better job of keeping out ambient light than the first-gen specs.
