If you wear glasses you can use it but it will not be as comfortable and stable.
Kassandra E. Kaplan
The framework that interfaces the VR920 with Mac OS X doesn't support the stereo3D mode.
J. Dolan
Even after calibrating the thing for half an hour, the head tracking was still a joke.

Let's start out by explaining what the VR920 is NOT. This product does NOT offer a all-encompassing, total-immersion experience that some may imagine from such a product.

The technology just isn't there yet... or rather, nobody has as of yet packaged the technology into an affordable consumer product. Hopefully as technology advances in the area of micro-displays, OLEDs, etc., products like this will improve. That being said, this is probably the best VR type head-mounted-displays available in the under $500 price range.

The field of view (FOV) does not totally wrap around you. It is not like you are IN a world as you might imagine or expect in a product like this. It is more like you are in a darkened room with a VGA projector. The image quality reminds me of an old 640x480 VGA projector.

It does, however, do a great job of providing a lightweight, private, wearable display that can be used in games, watching movies, or even doing some work in a word-processor, writing e-mails & IMs, etc.

Vuzix did release a firmware upgrade for this product in January 2008. A handful of the upgrade attempts by customers resulted in inoperable units. For those that the upgrade worked, the result was improved head-tracking and image clarity. As of the writing of this review, Vuzix was allegedly going to fix the units that were damaged by failed firmware updates. As of the writing of this review, Vuzix appears to be committed to the support of this product and their customers, which is comforting to me as a customer.

The design of the goggles is one-size fits all. The "ear" arms independently tilt, which is much touted in the documentation. I wish were able to tilt a little more and that there was a way to lock the tilt in a certain position.

PRO:
-head track
-3d

CONS:
-inconsistent support
-too low resolution
-uneven lit LCD
-bulky particularly with glass

I have always been curious about the VR and 3D. It was this interest which drew me to this product. After much research it seems that this was the best product for the money. It supports 3D vision with two separate LCD screens. At it's best, the effect is interesting, much like going to a modern 3D movie. The addition on head tracking improves the realism a bit, but overall it was not quite there for a few reasons. First of all, the LCD screens was not evenly lit, leaving the corners a little dark. Second the resolution is to low compared to modern standards. Support seems somewhat inconsistent ranging from only on or two items being 3d and the rest being flat(imagine some bushes being lifted of the screen but nothing else) to full support. Lastly, the product is a bit bulky. If you wear glasses you can use it but it will not be as comfortable and stable. Overall, it's not quite a consumer ready product (and it pains me to admit that)

The VR920 is a HMD which features two miniature LCD screens. This allows it to give each eye a separate picture and simulate a 3D world inside the computer. It also has a headtracker, you can look up or to the side and it will move in the game. Includes headphones and a mic, built-in. A very small, somewhat portable device. It looks great.

This model, the VR920, is for PC only. It will not work correctly a Mac or on the consoles. It is designed for PC gamers. It is a very cool little toy, but it only works in the games that support it. So far, there is a list of about 25-30 games that work, including COD4, HL2, CS:S, Crysis, FSX, UT2004, Portal, GTR2 and others. When you play with the VR920 you can see in stereo 3D like you do in real life. So it makes the games more immersive. It works best for racing sims, GTR2 and rFactor as pretty fun with the device. Crysis also looks pretty crazy if you have the PC to run it. If it were supported by more games I would give it a better score. It *DOES* work in Vista (they had a driver/firmware update recently that added support), and it also works for both Nvidia and ATI cards now.

However, this is not the best HMD on the market. The native resolution is only 640x480 (it can down-sample up to 1024x768). Colors are ok, could be better. Headtracking works but can be a bit inaccurate in some games. This is an entry-level device, so don't expect to put this on and jack into the Matrix. The virtual screen could be a lot bigger, its about the size of 22" monitor. The headset is somewhat difficult to wear with glasses, and can become uncomfortable about about an hour or two. This is not something you would wear 24/7, but its a fun little novelty item.

I must say I'm very impressed with these glasses.
When I play FPS games, the VR920 give me such an immersion that my body responds as if I was there in the game. I was playing Crysis and when I did that parachute jump I felt I was flying, my body was shivering! And when that bomb exploded near me, I instinctively put my hand in front of my eyes to protect myself.
I also like the integrated high quality microphone and earplugs which are very useful during LAN parties.
Some reviews complain about the look and comfort. For me they're very comfortable and I don't need fashion looks when I play games, but I do need immersion, which is all there. Also I find in-game text to be easily readable even in role playing games.
The problem I had was that the nose pad broke when I was adjusting them, but Vuzix kindly sent me a new one.
