This might interest you:
This is an LCD monitor capable of doing 120 Hz natively. Resolution is
1680x1050, which is the most common with computer flat screens (better
forget 1280x1024)... It sells for ?300 in France right now.
2x60 Hz stereoscopic glasses can be bought separately from nVidia
($200, or $600 bundled with the Samsung monitor). They are especially
interesting as the stereo support is done at the drivers level.
For the moment, unfortunately, the stereo drivers are only available
for mainstream GeForce cards under Windows Vista, but it should not
take long before nVidia provides Linux drivers. Support for the Quadro
range was announced for spring 2009, this might be done at the same
The glasses are also compatible with any CRT monitor capable of >= 100
Hz - so the old 21" >30kg CRT monsters from Mitsubishi/Sony/Illyama,
which can be found 2nd hand for about nothing, are interesting. This
is good to know if you want to stick to 1280x1024, as LCD panels
perform very poorly when not set to the native resolution. Bear in
mind that stereo with CRTs is quite painful to the eyes, the new
Samsung LCD might be significantly more confortable to work with...

With regard to the hand-held stereoviewers that were sold by VCH.
VCH was I think the marketting arm of the German Chemical Society,
but was aquired by Wiley some time between 1993 and 2003 (my
vagueness here is because I am looking at the imprints of books
published on these dates).
Whether Wiley are still selling the viewers is another matter. There
were two models (I got both of them when the Royal Society of
Chemistry was selling them).
With regard to monitors, Mitsubishi-Electric advertised their
Diamond 1080p DLP HDTV as being capable of stereo viewing using
shutter glasses. It came in three models 57, 65 and 73 inches. They
have sockets for connection to computers, and resolutions up to
1280 x 1024 and 1920 x 1080. I do not know how much they cost.
They were announced in North America, and I recollect that
MItsubishi in the UK had no record of them
I have always thought that using twin projectors was a better
solution for viewing stereo when more than one person is involved.
But projectors with native resolution of 1280 x 1024 (which I regard
as a standard) are rather rare.
