Ouch $600 US at Nvidia. And the glasses alone at NCIX are $250. That has to be the most overpriced 3D glasses in the history of 3D glasses.

Indeed. Hopefully it works awesome, and if not, hopefully you'll tell us

The article is being written as we speak. Basically iZ3D versus Nvidia and much more.

I got this test this bad boy out a while back.

It is VERY VERY cool! I was thoroughly impressed. I had heard the iZ3D gave people headache issues, but the nVidia/Samsung combo was beautiful.
The iZ3D is more of a 1st Gen product, but the nVidia setup is definitely not. It really feels like they have refined the 3D technology and it is definitely ready for the common person.

It puts a whole new perspective on games. It is really true 3D - The screen becomes almost this long cavern of sorts, the depth is astounding.

If I had the money I would have snapped one up. It will completely revolutionize your gaming experience!

After using the iZ3D and the Nvidia system extensively, I find that initially the Nvidia active system results in much more eye strain.

thats odd, out of the other reviews I have read about the 2 I see more compalints about the IZ3D causing eye strain.

I think this is going to be one of those things where some people get negative medical side affects from these like headaches and such. And others are 100% fine.

then again the reason im waiting for your review so much is you guys are one of the few places I trust reviews from lol.
