There were two little issues I had, however. They aren't severe. First, do NOT expect documentation in the box. It includes a little "Quick Start Guide"... but none of the pictures are clear, helpful, or even labeled. If you want an actual manual, you have to download a .PDF from their website. (And it's not even where the Quick-Start Guide says it is on the site, you have to find it in the sidebar.)
The other is that it has an extremely odd way of letting you know that the battery is dying. First, the power light on the pendant will start to alternate between orange and blue, but you're likely to be looking /into/ the glasses, so why would you see that? And after a few minutes of that, it does something that made me think it was broken the first time I encountered it. The screen slowly fades to *white* -- not black, but white -- and starts to glitch up very violently. The device is unharmed by this, but you're likely to be scrambling for your warranty information by the time you figure out that the only problem is that you haven't plugged it in lately. Cosmetic, but it's still a fright!
Anyway, it works perfectly, aside from those little gotcha's. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to feel a little more immersed in games or movies.
P.S: It doesn't support non-interlaced component signals. In English, this means that old game consoles (NES/Genesis/Master System) or even /emulations/ of old game consoles (like the Wii's Virtual Console service) will make the display turn off with a little pop of color. It's not obvious, so don't get these if all you want to do is play Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt with them.
Well I can't be more happy! the video quality its really good, clear and bright and the definition is amazing (I can even read subtitles if I want whitn no problem!) the only bad part is the fact that there is no control for hue and saturation only for contrast and brigthness (adjusting the contrast change too the level of saturation on color) and some movies look a little bit offset on the color.
What I can say about the audio... Its good, good enought to make my sister who try the MyVu say "It sounds cool!", I can control all the sound features from my Archos so I just set the volumen arround the middle section and I'm more than pleased.
How the glasses fit on my face it's ok, the weight is not an issue if you use the magnetic clip so the power/control unit don't pull down, the lengh of the cables is more than enought for most of the aplications.
Battery power... well I have watch 2 or 3 movies and I still not drain out the batteries (I'm charging the MyVu using a external USB charger, the battery get full on one or 2 hours, if I use the USB from the Pc takes forever). I see a couple of reviews from people having trouble charging the glasses, I guess a bad batch MyVu Crystal is responsable of this because my works fine.
This one is a great device for the people who travel a lot, or for the ones who want to watch a movie or play videogames and free a TV for some one else, and the price make the purchase sweet!
My only knocks on the glasses are 1) they cost more than my ipod! and 2) the connection cable from the glasses to the dongle, and the ipod cable where it connects to the ipod, do not lock in place and are easily pulled out with the slightest tug on the cable.
Overall, I am happy with the product but it was very hard to justify the price to my wife.
Sound quality is just normal ear phone type, not high end.
One annoying problem is the wiring can get tangled up a bit, but that is given in design as it's not wireless. All in all its a very functional and good compromise with spouse!
