This is my second MyVu, as I like the clean design of the new model; also, my first MyVu is used to let other people that keep interupting me to ask about the device a chance to try it out. I travel by plane nearly daily and the MyVu allows me to catch up with news and video podcasts comfortably. I really like the improvement to the screen with this model and the clean lines of the design.

As the other review stated, I too worry if I would damage the audio cables, but in nearly daily use for the past year, I have not had a problem with my other unit.

Clean design, comfortable to wear, and easy to operate...as you can tell, I love this product.

Bought the MyVu Crystal Black before a LONG international flight. Works great and screen is clearer that one would expect.

Other companies block out all outside light which is good, but sometimes someone is trying to get your attention and with the MyVu you see something out of the corner of your eye. I was worried about the outside distractions, but I kind of like it. If someone wants to make fun of you for wearing the glasses, you can catch them in the act.

The weight of the glasses can begin to bother you after about 5 or 6 hours. It is bearable, but can cause some discomfort.

I carry a Wall powered USB charging cable (not included) because it charges much quicker than linking to a computer. I find myself switching the charging cable back and forth from the iPod and MyVu to make sure the battery power lasts.

The 2 things I would change are the ability to change the earphones. While they work great now, I fear if they break, there goes the unit. Right now it is fine though. I would also like to see a reasonably priced spare battery packs.

Overall. I love the glasses and am happy with my purchase.

Note, buy the hard case. I would worry that the glasses would break while traveling, but the hard case protects it much better than the soft pouch case (like you get when you buy a pair of sun glasses.)

First, this item said in stock, but the ship date was 50 days away. Anyway, it took 4 purchases to get a working Myvu Crystal. My first attempt on Ebay didn't work because the battery wouldn't charge. My next attempt was Amazon and their mysterious order delay. Then I just went to BestBuy with a coupon and bought one. It had the same battery problem. Further, it had apparently been returned by somebody else because the battery compartment was cracked which I bet indicates somebody trying to swap their dead battery. So I went back to BestBuy and exchanged it for a working (knock on wood) Myvu. So, two dead batteries and I bet Amazon's order problem is also due to battery related inventory trouble. It doesn't appear that replacing the battery is intended as an option, by the way, as evidenced by the cracked case.

Having said all of that I do like it and if the battery doesn't die I'll be happy with the purchase.

Cool Uses:
- Watching TV in bed without irritating your bed-mate with all the light from a laptop.
- Watching risque material on an airplane without having to cover the screen every time there is nudity

Problems:
- Battery
- Also seems like the volume control on the pendant doesn't work quite right, but I'll just use the IPod volume rather than return it again.

My friend let me try his. Flimsy quality - feels like the plastic will break if you open them too fast. Like many other folks, they also arrived with a dead battery that would NOT hold a charge. There are also too many cables/cords hanging down when hooking these things up to a portable DVD player, which make these quite heavy to wear and started hurting the bridge of my nose after only a few minutes.

Something else people should know - For some reason, Myvu has opted to make these with a rechargeable battery that is NON-REPLACEABLE. It took 2 emails and a phone call to Myvu to FINALLY get them to confess to this. The ENTIRE PENDANT/BATTERY PACK must be replaced ($100 + S&H), is ONLY avalable thru Myvu and is currently UNAVAILABLE as of this writing. I was told that, under the best of circumstances, the rechargeable battery will last 3-4 years. Well, according to all the reviews I'm reading on Amazon this is simply NOT the case. Since the previous "Crystal" model and the new "Crystal EV" model both use the same pendant/battery pack, one assumes Myvu rotates their stock, so these viewers are shipping with the oldest stock of pendants FIRST with a rechargeable battery life of "ZERO" to "???". Yours might arrive with a TOTALLY DEAD battery that won't hold a charge, might charge for a few months, a year, 2 years...? Can you say MORE MONEY? Looks like Myvu will be making lots of money in future revenues for replacement parts. Smart marketing!

A personal viewer that will cost $400 (+ tax, + S&H) over the next year or so when just the battery needs replaced?

I'LL PASS.
