EVGA InterView  (Source: EVGA)
InterView sports dual 17-inch LCD screens

EVGA is a company that is closely associated with video cards in the computer world. The company is one of the most well-known firms offering NVIDIA video cards, especially video cards that are overclocked from the factory.

What most enthusiasts won’t associate with EVGA is computer monitors. EVGA has announced a new dual screen LCD called the EVGA InterView. The InterView has dual displays that sport a resolution of 1440 x 900 each and a 1.3-megapixel webcam between the two displays.

One of the coolest features of the InterView is that both of the displays can be rotated 180 degrees and the screen flips the content intelligently so you can rotate a screen to share information with a person on the other side of a desk. The monitors can be mirrored or the desktop can be extended across both screens.

The dual screens are 17-inch units with bezels between the two that puts space between the screens, which could be an issue for users looking to extend the desktop to two screens. Each screen has a pixel pitch of 0.255mm x 0.255mm and a contrast ratio of 500:1 with a brightness of 220CD/m. The average response time is quoted at 8ms. The Interview system weighs 17.46 pounds.

HotHardware has a review of the InterView up and the system carries a retail price of $649.99, a premium over a typical pair of 17-inch LCDs. All of the controls for the LCDs are on the base of the device. The input is DVI only and you have to have a video card that offers dual DVI outputs. That means that notebooks are going to need extra hardware.

If you find a couple of good deals you can get 2 24" 1900x1200 screens for that price...

Agreed. Complete ripoff at that price. I don't use a 17" LCD and I don't know anyone who does. 17" is too small and they can suck it if they think they're going to convince anyone that the plastic swiveling stand that they've attached these montiors to is worth $400 (assuming a generous value of $250 for a couple of 17" screens).

You absolutely can....I just bought an Acer 24" from New Egg for about $220 (btw beautiful monitor I love it! No dead pixels either), so for under $450 (before shipping or any applicable taxes) you could get dual 24" that support true 1080p resolution.......or you can add $200 bucks to your cost to have 14" of LESS viewable screen real-estate at the much less 1440 x 900 resolution, but hey you get this nice dual monitor stand on a swivel base....and a web cam (oooooh!)...

And you could push them closer together than those two displays are.
