Summary: I'm sure these vuzix wrap 920 video glasses would normally be great except for one teensy, weensy little problem...Both eyepiece lenses are scratched and the protective film was removed and stuck to the body above the lenses. Normally I would chalk this up to some nit-wit who tried them on and found them not to his/her liking and sent them back to Amazon.com for a refund, but I would also have expected them to have a "Used" notice on the ad, Instead, they were marked...
Excerpt: There is an additional blackout component available by Vuzix, however it is an extra purchase, when clearly it should be included with the product; this is clearly an attempt to rip off the consumer. Finally, the nose-bridge on the glasses can get weighty and uncomfortable after prolonged use. Vuzix Wrap 920 is a fun and interesting gadget if you have the money to spend (approximately $300), but this is an idea that is a long way from being perfected.
Summary: For the price, these are about as good and bad as you would expect. Pros: Simulates a 640x480 resolution screen at about 6'-10' away (hard to gauge distance with a lens). Can produce a 3D effect with the right video input (side-by-side mode reduces the resolution to 320x480 stretched per eye). Fully compatible with any composite video input or an iPod. Fairly light and comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time.
Summary: Lets get one thing out of the way right away - Im keeping these - they work well for what I wanted them for "flying RC planes". *and for that purpose you also need either the lightshield or a hood pulled over your head to block out light... but that kind of goes for any video glasses used for FPV in daylight, so I can't blame these. Second - there is nothing "67 inch plasma display" about these, think 12 inch laptop at working distance.. and that is being kind.
Summary: This is the first thing I have ever returned to Amazon because I found it mediocre. I knew I had made a poor decision when I plugged in the built-in earphones to try them out and the right one had a persistent buzz that was so loud it rendered the built-in audio pretty much useless. With shipping and tax, this purchase cost me $277. That's too much for something that buzzes when you try to use its built-in ado.
Summary: This is a personal eyewear, and it should be designed and sold more personally. I have great difficulty fusing the two images in the left and right into a single image (I essentially see a double-vision), and can often only fuse them after staring at a certain pattern for quite a few minutes. Maybe I am an outlier, but this is certainly not "one-size fits all".
Summary: The wrap 920 is definitely not for everyone. These are absolutely not a substitute for a real TV. They are difficult to get adjusted and are not especially comfortable. Vuzix advertises that its the same as a 67" screen at ten feet, but this is not really true because the image does not appear to be ten feet away. Its more like a 20" screen at 3 feet. The device has 2 little LCD screens (480x640), one for each eye. The screens themselves fine.
