Get your head in the game -- Your WHOLE head! NaturalPoint's TrackIR 4:PRO lets you look around your game world the way you do in real life: by moving your head! Using state-of-the-art infrared imaging, TrackIR 4:PRO lets you add input to your gaming without affecting the mouse, keyboard/pad or joystick you already use. You'll think you're actually looking out through your cockpit or helmet onto a scene in front of you, then move your head slightly in any direction to see what’s "over there".

In TrackIR enhanced games, you can look out over your wingtip in a flight simulation, check your side mirror, or peek around a corner to find an opponent before he sees you! TrackIR 4:PRO works with a great many titles, and more are on the way! A full "6 Degrees of Freedom" let you move around in the 3D virtual space you can now exploit.

Immerse yourself in your game world more easily than ever before, and let TrackIR 4:PRO show you around!

  • newegg Move Your Head to Change Your Game View Employing advanced infrared imaging and motion capture technologies, the TrackIR 4:PRO detects your head movements and changes your game view correspondingly.

  • newegg 6 Degrees of Freedom Full support for 6DOF (6 Degrees of Freedom) sets the TrackIR 4:PRO apart from other input devices. 6DOF refers to six types of movements in 3D space including lean left/right, move up/down, zoom in/out, turn left/right, look up/down and tilt left/right.

4 out of 5 eggscool gadget

Pros: Makes simulations so much more realistic. No more having to keymap buttons to look around. I use it on ARCA, IL-2, GTR2, rFactor. Felt like this was a pretty good value with rFactor, Battle of Britain and the two diff attachements for either mounting on a hat brim or on a headset.

Cons: Sometimes hiccups(screen jumps a few degrees)Can throw off your orientation for a second. Very low number of First person shooters supported like CoD4 isnt

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product Design

Pros: I've bought a lot of different input device "gadetry", hoping for better, more natural response to simulations and game play. Well, I was a little worried this was going to be another one of those niche, sort of nice, but really not worth messing with products. Let me tell you, at least in the couple programs I've used it in (Most NOTEABLY, Microsoft FSX), this product is indespensible.

Cons: Enable software seems very complete, however, a bit more straight forward options would be nice on how to enable in various situations. Also, not sure why, but MS FSX only had 2 axis enabled...had to use the FS2004 profile to get all 6, which works fine in FSX.

Other Thoughts: If you are a flight sim fan, and want some of the GREAT eyepoint response functions, naturally right in your own home, get this. One word of warning, though...make sure you are getting at least 25fps (SHIFT-Z in FSX) in most of your games, or the response will be less than fluid and probably make you sick or not like it.

5 out of 5 eggsI wish I knew how great this worked before!

Pros: Combat flight sims are my preferred games. As such this is great... Anyone remember when "Padlock" view was first released in the Falcon series? This gives you "Padlock" with out all the button pushing, searching for the right threat, trying to figure out where is your head in relation to the cockpit etc. Seems to makes take off and landing easier and eliminates your reliance on the Hat Switch (just reprogrammed my X52 hat to control bombsight). I definatly fly better and more smoothly with it than without it. Not sure why people say the Pro-Clip is flimsy, one should not be beating one's headset anyway.

Cons: Directions need to be written better particularly when trying to figure out the sensitivity curves. How the unit connects to the monitor mount definatly could use a redesign. But as the product doesnt get moved around alot... No big deal. The Pro-Clip also needs to be designed so it can go on either side of a head set instead of just the left side, not a show stopper for me but could be problematic for some folk's head sets.

Other Thoughts: If your a flight sim person, go to the manufactures website and check out some things that are going to be coming out that use this (DCS: Black Shark and their future titles for example a long awaited AH-64 Simulator). Newegg had the best price by FAR on this unit, wish it was in NewEgg stock when I wanted to order mine. I prefer Newegg.com but I didnt want to wait for this.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks well, maybe too well...

Pros: Easy to install, just make sure you install the software before you plug in the USBs. Easy to setup. Intuitive software. Works as advertised.

Cons: For the money, the components really should be a little more heavy duty. It will not take much rough handling to damage the headset or receiver. I would not buy this for kids unless they are very carefull about taking care of electronics.

Other Thoughts: I play two flight sims: FSX and Aces High. I love the Track IR on FSX, hate it on Aces High. That is probably just me, but in a combat flight sim I'm looking around so much that I get disorientated after a while and sick shortly after that. I can hardly stand up after playing Aces High with the Track IR. Went back to the hat switch.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply incredible!

Pros: A lot of people write this off as just an expensive controller. Definitely overlook what those people say because it adds another way to control your game. Definitely worth every penny for ArmA!

Cons: My only gripe is that I have problems if there is a lamp on behind my head and that is to be expected if you understand how the product works.

Other Thoughts: Now I just need a triple head display set up and I'll be ready for anything!

2 out of 5 eggsNazzofastthere :)

Pros: Incredible for games.

Cons: Absolutely the worst engineering possible for the mount. Flimsy would be kind...

Other Thoughts: Wrote the previous review with the main complaint that the stand was very poorly engineered.

It doesn't stop there. Checked with naturalpoint about getting a replacement and find that they will replace them under warranty - long since gone in my case (been broken and in a drawer for quite a while now).

Otherwise it is $50 and you have to send it back to them.

Sorry, but that is just poor, Poor, POOR engineering all the way around.

Fortunately it would have been REAL hard for them to cheap the electronics side of the device that badly.

It doesn't negate the device itself but is just something you need to be aware of.

That and that you can get a better mount than what it comes with using blue tack and a cable hold down.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little device, but...

Pros: Nothing like it for flight simulators and I would assume other games so you don't have to suffer from the hat switch to look around and you can lean forward / back for a better view of the instruments or about anything else. Definitely adds to the immersion / realism factor.

Yes, it is massively overpriced but there is nothing else out there that will give you the same capabilities. Still worth it, sad to say.

Cons: Construction of the mount is really, REALLY *POOR*, delicate little thing to be sure.

Mine disintegrated in fairly short order :-(. Currently stuck on top of the monitor with blue tack which does work, probably better than the original mount, definitely more robust than the original.

Probably wise to secure the cable somehow as the mount will VERY easily break otherwise.

Other Thoughts: If you have problems with "lack of motion sickness" (mind knows body SHOULD be moving correspondingly but isn't and gets confused) this will add to it until you get used to it.

Takes some time to get used to, but SO nice once you do.

I got this elsewhere as when I got it Newegg wasn't carrying it :-(. Would have been much happier to have given Newegg the business :-).

4 out of 5 eggsFun!

Pros: Does what it should...really wanted one forever and finally sprung for it. Adds a whole new level to sim games my main reason for getting it.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I have an LG 22 widescreen and have noticed on some racers it doesnt do too much to improve ones field of view as with the wider screens of today you can see much more.

4 out of 5 eggsPoorly designed niche product.

Pros: Head tracking is essential to be competetive in IL2 once you reach the skill level where gunnery and engine management become instinctive, and this product provides the required head tracking at a (somewhat) reasonable price. That is the only reason it does not get a bad review.

Cons: Far overpriced -- you'll laugh when you see how little you really get for your money. Small, cheap plastic parts break easily. Poorly designed and constructed. Dreadful installation instructions provide highly counterintuitive advice on how to set it up for any game you'll be playing.

Other Thoughts: This is a poor implementation of a great idea. Because it is the only game in town, however, flight/racing sim buffs have no choice but to pony up the money. Despite all the negatives, head tracking is worth the price.

5 out of 5 eggs6DOF = Love

Pros: I love this thing. I was not sure what it would be like so I took a risk. I could never go back to hat switch viewing. This thing is the coolest thing I have ever owned.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: If your thinking about it, just get it. You wont be sad.
