Top Customer Reviews
+ Compatible with most eyeglasses, including mine. Nearsighted people with glasses will need to wear them with this.
+ Does not even touch your nose if you don't want it to.
+ Wireless worked perfectly for me, but you can alternatively connect the battery pack to the processing box via HDMI and use it wired.
+ Privacy. Other people are unable to see the screens while you are wearing it, even if they try to peek around your head.
+ Included earbuds sound good and feel high quality.
+ Includes lots of extra rubber earpieces for the earbuds (different shapes).
+ Compatible with most other headphones via the 3.5mm jack
+ 3 HDMI inputs. You can switch between them with the on-screen menu or by pressing the INPUT button on the processing unit.
+ Reasonably light weight. The T3 is the lightest Sony HMZ head-mounted-display yet.
+ 100 - 240V power supplies, meaning they can be used in most other countries without converting voltage.
+ Looking down, you can see below the device pretty well, allowing easy usage of keyboard, mouse, gamepad, or remote control.
+ Compatible with nvidia 3D technology for stereoscopic games and 3D movie playback.
+ You can choose over/under and side-by-side 3D formats through the on-screen menu, or leave it on auto mode if the application explicitly supports 3D output.
- Difficult to position the viewer to get a clear, sharp image across the entire screen(s). If the previous models were worse, I feel sorry for the owners of those models.Read more ›
- An extraordinary viewing experience. Image is very crisp in center throughout corners.
- It really feels like a huge screen. You can't reach that view without being in an actual cinema or a huge room with a high end projector.
- Text and subtitles are now easily readable and looks very clear.
- Video settings are completely adjustable (colors, tones, sharpness, etc)
- Many people complain about the resolution not being full 1080P. Believe me, these glasses give better results than any full HD TV from Sony.
- Screen size is adjustable (100%/90%/80%/70%). This is very useful when playing PS3 games specially first person shooter since playing on such a huge screen would make it very difficult to quickly spot targets around corners and also too much movement would make you feel dizzy. I prefer going for 70% when playing such games to have a complete view of the scene without having to scan it every second with my eyes from one corner to another)
- In order to get a perfect picture, glasses should be adjusted perfectly which could be a little bit challenging. any slight movement could cause blurriness.
* 3D Video Experience:-
- Looking at 3D TVs wearing glasses usually gets me dizzy. it feels as if my brain takes time to read the dimensions. Without getting into so much details, these glasses just don't do that. 3D looks as good as 2D but with a third dimension.
- 2 Options for 3D viewing are available (Side to Side) and (Over and Under). In other words, you may play any 3D contents on these glasses, even from PC.
- Just like all 3D screens, some times the pictures/scenes might feel a little blurry.Read more ›
1) looks cool, no one else has these and enhances my geek factor
2) 3D projector + 3D glasses + 3D converter is about $1200+ for a decent setup. This is $1k in comparison.
3) this takes up almost no room at all. No room needed for projecting anything either. It's just a headset.
So having used it for a few days here are my thoughts:
1) It takes a while to adjust the headset so that its comfortable. It is definitely lighter than the Sony HMZ-T1 but it still needs alot of adjustment.
2) Picture quality is pretty amazing. I've used the Myvu Crystal viewer before so I've used these HUDs before, but these OLED screens are fantastic. Picture is bright and clear. Its like having a 75 inch TV in front of you, but you can still see the edges.
3) Light guard is annoying to put on, and you pretty much always need to have it to block light. So why didn't Sony just build this in? When would I ever NOT use the light guard? Its annoying to fit that thing in. This is the same issue the HMZ-T1 also had.
4) 3D quality is good. As good as you will see with any 3D movie in a movie theater anyway.
5) Audio quality is good. The included headphone are pretty decent, but the fact that you can use your OWN headphones is pretty amazing. Use a set of closed headphones with it. I'm using my Audio Technica A900s.
6) Wireless setup is tricky.Read more ›
