Vuzix iWear AV230XL Video Headset: SlashGear Review

 

Head-mounted displays are one of those great ideas that, in practice, few people actually go for. Yes, having the effect of a full-sized TV with the bulk (and cost) of a set of chunky designer sunglasses is good in theory, but the look can put people...

Icuiti iWear review: Icuiti iWear

 

The Icuiti iWear gives the illusion of viewing a large screen from a distance, which helps with eye fatigue when watching videos on undersized LCDs. Focus knobs on each eye allow those with imperfect vision to use the iWear. You may listen through your...

The Icuiti iWear is expensive and uncomfortable, and its video quality is poor. Most users will have extreme difficulty getting the built-in headphones to fit properly. No-brainer accessories--such as a charging cable--are not included with the iPod...

You're better off watching the screen on your iPod or PVP than investing in the Icuiti iWear. Wait for a next-generation version with improved comfort and video quality.

Vuzix iWear AV920 Video Eyewear

 

I own a third-generation iPod nano, which happens to be the first generation where Apple decided to include video playback capabilities in a nano. That's all well and good, but ...

Innovative product with plenty of device support ; Simple one dial control scheme ; Built-in ear buds are convenient

Quite expensive at $350 MSRP ; Considerable eye strain even with short video sessions ; Uncomfortable to wear for longer periods of time (especially for people with Asian features) ; Video quality needs significant improvement

You’ll also notice that there are a couple of things directly attached to the video visor. You get the earphones that are embedded into the frame, lining up quite well with where you ears would be. There's also the wired adapter that swings out the...

Big Screen Glasses - Vuzix iWear AV920 Video Glasses Reviewed

 

Video glasses are one of those items that are supposed to be relegated to science fiction movies, books or perhaps merely the idle mind. Pity nobody told Vuzix.

VR on the cheap: a review of the Vuzix iWear VR920 video eyewear

 

A low-cost, high-quality video headset has been a dream for a long time, and the VR920 promises the sun and the moon. We look at how well the final product delivers.

Stereoscopic 3D is nearly impossible for newer video cards, ATI cards, or Vista owners, The video and USB cable can't be removed, Low refresh rate can be bothersome at times, Getting games to utilize the head-tracking is an in-depth process

Vuzix iWear VR920

 

The next generation of Virtual Reality gaming headsets has arrived. Does it work as advertised?

My only other issue is that there's an always noticeable gap between your head and the headset when using them, which kills some of the immersion for me. I was always aware that I could easily look up and down outside of the viewing area of the screen,...
