5 out of 5 eggsYou got to get this!!!!

Pros: This is the most amazing 3D effects you can have in your PC. I installed this 3D kit together with two GTX260 XFX nVidia cards and the new Alienware OPTX AW2310 monitor. This is a killer combination. You can see the elements pop out of the screen. Even the regular games look really good.

Cons: A little pricey but it is worth the investment. The installation of the IR emitter is kind of trickey but after reading the FAQ section in the nVidia website you are able to figure it out. Don't even bother with the drivers that come in the CD. Download the latest ones that are posted in the website.

Other Thoughts: Their support is great. I open a case just to ask some questions about this tecknolgy and I got an answer to all my questions the next morning.

5 out of 5 eggsBrilliant!

Pros: Works with virtually any pc game and many applications; easy to install; easy to use; the glasses are comfortable and work fine over eyeglasses or contacts;

Cons: They aren't cheap; the 120Hz monitor that you have to buy to go with these isn't cheap and there are a limited number of models that are compatible (check the 3d Vision system requirements page on before you buy!); support from nvidia is spotty at best; there may be other potentially better options available very soon from large TV manufacturers

Other Thoughts: What was the last computer upgrade you got that felt revolutionary? Not just "incremental," but truly revolutionary? This is it. If you are a pc gamer, these will change your life. I've been using them for over a year and would recommend them 100% for any pc gamer.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Product

Pros: * Great product
* Delivers on what it advertises
* Works with no notable performance loss for me
(see system specs in cons)
* New drivers released on a monthly bases from NVIDIA at the
time of this post.
* Awesome in 1920x1080
* For anyone that plays FFXI, 3D Vision works with it. I spent
hours trying to find out if it did or not, but seems no one else
has tried it. Works surprisingly well, too. Only bad thing is that
using it with the windower does not allow you to take off the
Compatibility Overlay in the bottom right corner of the screen.
No problems with Vanilla FFXI.

Cons: While I think 3D Vision is a great product, there are a few minor and one major issue I have experienced with it. For reference, I am running with a GTX 295, 8GB RAM, QX9650 OC'd to 3.6GHZ, using the 3D Vision Full Installation CD Package v1.18A downloaded directly from NVIDIA, with Vista x64 as my OS.

* When playing Aion, the glasses seem to go out of sync after playing for a while. The image slowly begins the split, then there is a flash, followed by the image becoming one again. It loops in faster or slower intervals at random. So far, this has only affected Aion. Most likely it is a driver issue, as this is the only game that does that for me.

* Some games have an "after image" effect in them. It seems kind of random, though. You can sometimes see it when the camera turns in a certain direction, or a facing certain textures. I can't really consider this a major con as most of the time you do not notice. It's usually only apparent when your character is standing idle.

Other Thoughts: Definitely delivers on the 3D. Admittedly, I was very skeptical at first. Then I saw my first 3D film, Avatar. While the movie was good, what really left an impression on me was the use of 3D. As a skeptic, it showed me the technology could work quite well. I bought an Alienware 1920x1080 120hz display and these glasses once the monitor was available and can't say I regret it.

Some games do work better than others. I will list the things that make certain games not work in cons. Most of the time, however, I see no real problems. 3D effect works and can be adjusted to get more out of it. Each game allows for a custom profile system that is auto loaded for that game once the changes are saved through a hot key. Works with DirectX 8 and up games.

5 out of 5 eggsgood 3d glasses

Pros: They look about as cool as they can while still providing sufficient functionality and viewing space. They work awesome with my 60" DLP. Needless to say it adds a whole new dimension to games, old and new.

The battery lasts a long time between charges. I just vegged out almost all weekend and they havent even given the low battery warning. They stop when you look away from the IR emitter and shut themselves off after so long of not being used. They come with a really nice nvidia green microfiber cloth and carrying pouch and differently shaped nose-pieces.

Cons: Not the most comfortable glasses ever, especially behind the ears. I thought it was just my big head but my short friend tried them on and even he thought they were too tight behind the ears. I find myself sitting the arms higher up on my head so they arent pinching behind my ears so bad, but that kinda angles them weird.

I wish they would have included a hardshell case for the glasses instead of the pouch...

Other Thoughts: Those who knock points off because of the ghosting effect seen on 3D LCDs need to realize that the issue is exclusive to those monitors and isn't due to the glasses. If this item was the monitor-glasses bundle i could see knocking off points, but these are just the glasses. And regardless of the quality of your display, these things are top notch.

I'd love to see a more comfortable version come out in the near future though, maybe with adjustable length and some softer material around the ears, since I'll probably want to get more glasses for other people to use anyways,.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice quality!

Pros: Excellent image quality! The effect is amazing and there is no ghosting! I am running it on my Mitsubishi 60 inch DLP TV and the effect is beyond belief! It really immerses you into the game and soon will do the same for 3D Blu Ray when I buy the new 3D Blu Rays that are coming out (plus the Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 Ultra Software and the new Acer GD245HQ monitor)! I cannot wait for that experience!

Cons: There currently is no support for windowed mode 3D, but that is coming in a future driver this year! Therefore, it is no big deal to be honest!

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this product as it appears to have the most games playable in 3D! The other 3D solutions are great, but there are major issues with them!

1 out of 5 eggsok but no good

Pros: Decent attempt at 3d, more clear than the earlier polarized glasses and not it has a free range of motion. Easy set up.

Cons: Not many monitors to choise from. Horrible shaddow effect which makes games unplayable accept if you use a mitsubishi DLP TV, and those are fuzzy out of 3d mode.

Other Thoughts: It was a waiste of money, horrible horrible stuff. If the shaddow was gone it might be worth the money, but this tech is not nearly developed enough to be worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Effect

Pros: The 3D effect is amazing if the games you play support it! From my experience, you won't get a headache from it, and it is hard to go back to 2D on games you have played in 3D. The glasses themselves are sturdy and comfortable, and the IR emitter is small and light. I have not encountered any driver bugs, or bugs on the nVidia 3D video and picture programs.

Cons: Biggest con at the time of this writing is that many games do not support 3D, have graphical errors that make them unplayable, or have crippling performance issues. As game developers begin to code with 3D in mind, these issues will probably go away. Another con is that it is somewhat uncomfortable to use the glasses with a large, heavy headset. I got a headache after using these with my Tritton 5.1 headset for an hour, simply because the ends of the glasses were pressed against my ear. Lastly, the glasses require you to use a nVidia GPU. ATI may decide to support them in the future because a large amount of people will have them, but as of writing this you cannot use an ATI video card to run 3D.

Other Thoughts: The 3D effect itself is amazing, and the glasses themselves are not uncomfortable in any way. However, there are very few games that are playable with 3D (Crysis is not one of the playable ones), and most of them have performance issues (think 30 fps max). Also, no movies are available in stereoscopic 3D yet. Another consideration is the lack of support for ATI video cards. ATI may add support in the future, but until then users are forced to stay with nVidia. Overall, the 3D effect is worth $200, but you may have to wait several months before games and movies are released in perfect 3D.

4 out of 5 eggsExpensive Toy

Pros: This is probably the best pc gaming 3d solution available right now. The shutter glasses work flawlessly when paired with a 120hz+ monitor. Good 3d effect that's comfortable on your eyes.

Cons: Configuring and troubleshooting is difficult and there is little support available. I had a lot of problems with flickering at first as have a lot of people, but there are no official answers from NVIDIA. I spent 2 days troubleshooting before I got them to work with no flicker. Any other shortcoming has more to do with how the games are developed. Some work great, some not so much.

Other Thoughts: It's worth the money if you've always been a fan of 3d. I was very happy that nvidia started making a stereoscopic driver again. Now I just wish they'd let it support other technologies like polarization.

4 out of 5 eggsNice tech, make sure you have a nice GPU though

Pros: Nice 3d Effect. Works in many games, at different levels of quality. depends on the game. Gives me a reason to re download/reinstall a lot of games I finished to play them with 3d.

Cons: Make sure you have a pretty hefty GPU. I'm ok, I have a gtx 295 but if your GPU isn't powerful, be aware game frame rates sometimes are cut in half with 3d vision enabled, because the screen needs to be drawn twice, once for each eye. Also sometimes they shut off when I am in the middle of a 3d vision game, and I have to use a keyboard combination to re enter stereo 3d so I can properly see whats on the screen. I have to call NVIDIAs tech support line to find out why this is happening. Requires a (at least) $250 120hz pc lcd or hdtv to use the glasses. Requires me to buy NVIDIA GPUS going foward, I would have liked it if I had the option to try a ATI gpu and still use the steroscopic 3d.

Other Thoughts: Nice product, in some games the 3d effect is very impressive.

5 out of 5 eggsIf you're into gaming, these glasses are for you

Pros: 3D worked for every game I tried it with. Some better than others. I'm looking forward to games built with this technology specifically in mind.

Cons: I don't regret buying the glasses because they're really fun to play with, but its really hard to justify the price.
