I use this product to view stereo images published in scientific journals. It enhances the illusion of depth and seems to make stereo graphics look even sharper when viewed through them. The approximate dimensions are 16 cm x 8 cm x 1 cm when they are folded up. There is an alarming "creaking" sound when you fold and unfold the metal legs, but they seem to be durable enough. This product makes observing stereo images comfortable and enjoyable--I dislike "free-viewing" stereo images without them, because I cannot move my eyes around once the image appears in stereo without losing the effect. Highly recommended!

True I wanted a profession Stereo Scope, but these don't seem to be available, so the plastic one is my only choice, works well and is easily adjustable for eye spacing and height, for the price, adjustments & ease of use, am very satisfied!

One cannot go too terribly wrong with these stereoscope glasses. The trick in how to operate these glasses resides with the observer and their ability to "see" through them properly. It is much like the two dimensional paper image that has a three dimensional quality to it when you look at it correctly. Not everyone can do this easily. In other words, the glasses work properly, the question is whether the observer can use them properly.

It is low cost, compact when folded, and simple to use.
I was hoping this would be an entry level device to get people interested in making their own stereo pictures.
When I bought this, I assumed incorrectly that it was for viewing standard antique 3 1/2" x 7" stereo cards. It did not work. I could not see the 3D image. The image I saw was double with the images being about 1/2' apart. By making my own stereo cards (with left and right images) smaller I could view 3D images with this viewer. I usually make my own cards by mounting 3.5" x 3.5" images on 3.5" x 7" cards. These view well in old viewers. To get this viewer to show 3D, I had to cut the images down to about 3" x 3" and slide them closer together. These viewed OK but I don't want two sizes to cope with. My three other viewers are for standard 3.5" x 7" stereo cards. I returned the viewer today.

I took a chance for the cheap price, but was disappointed. Does not work real well. Folding them is a pain also, since you have to pull one of the metal stands almost all the way out of the plastic viewer to fold it back over the top of the viewer for flat storage. I'm afraid I'm going to break the plastic each time.

Although these are not suitable for steady use for long periods, they're fine for their intended purpose: demonstrations where users will be "getting the idea" about stereoscopic viewing by looking at a few sample image pairs. Considering their modest cost, they're just the ticket.

These kind of work. They are thick and heavy, kind of awkward. Not overly useful, wouldn't purchase again.

Works as advertised - as a cheap easy solution - certainly not elegant, but it does the job.
