Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer

CNET
2 October 2012
  • Summary: While the Sony HMZ-T1 personal headset is capable of some of the best 3D effects I've ever seen, it's uncomfortable to wear for extended periods and images suffer from blurriness.
  • Cons: The headset is heavy and becomes quite uncomfortable with extended use. It's not possible to get the whole screen in focus at once, resulting in blurring at the edges. The effects of its lower resolution are apparent: detail levels aren't up there with an equivalently priced television, and pixel structure is visible.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: With an excellent picture, and surprising comfort, the Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer is the best head-mounted display we've seen yet, but it's still an expensive novelty.
  • Pros: Successfully simulates a big screen viewed from afar. Excellent picture. Comfortable design.
  • Cons: HDMI input only. Requires plug-in power through separate processor device. No Dolby or DTS support.

  • Conclusion: With the headset actually on my head. I was immediately aware of the pressure that it was exerting on my forehead and my nose. While it wasn’t discomforting, I could tell that if I sat in a chair and used this device for longer than half an hour, I’d begin to feel uncomfortable. Donning the rubber light-blockers at the bottom of the device allowed it to rest on my cheeks a bit more and reduce the pressure on my nose, but this was only a minor improvement.

Sony Personal 3D Viewer review

Gameplanet
28 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Matt straps the future to his face, and takes a look at Sony's highly optimised 3D experience, a headset for 3D games and movies. It turns out, the future is not now.
  • Pros: Excellent 3D effect. No cross talk. Immersive experience under right circumstances. Great for movies.
  • Cons: Not at all great for games, the technology just isn't there yet. Minimal margin for error. May not fit all heads.

  • Excerpt: The Sony Personal 3D Viewer (HMZ-T1) is a head-mounted display that uses a 720p OLED screen in front of each eye, creating a crosstalk-free 3D effect. It’s somewhat difficult to set up correctly and can be uncomfortable. If you get it right, though, it can display bright and contrasty images which have excellent 3D.

Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer

CNET
10 February 2012
  • Summary: While the Sony HMZ-T1 personal headset is capable of some of the best 3D effects I've ever seen, it's uncomfortable to wear for extended periods and images suffer from blurriness.
  • Pros: It's fun! Whether it's for gaming or movies, the Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer is one of the best 3D displays on the market, with zero crosstalk. Based on OLED technology, the headset is capable of deep, deep black levels, and whether in 2D or 3D, all images have surprising amounts of depth.
  • Cons: The headset is heavy and becomes quite uncomfortable with extended use. It's not possible to get the whole screen in focus at once, resulting in blurring at the edges. The effects of its lower resolution are apparent: detail levels aren't up there with an equivalently priced television, and pixel structure is visible.
