What customers say about "Key Specs"
Zeiss Cinemizer OLED (1909-127) Multimedia Video Glasses
  • However, for professionals looking for a field video monitor, or the privacy-minded traveler who wants to avoid prying eyes while working on sensitive files or watching movies in public places, these are fantastic.
  • If you want to watch movies and yes even web surf and have a portable monitor, you want the Cinemizer. When using Chrome, you will want to use set the default zoom to 125-150 percent- if you do this you will have very nice, viewable, non blurry text and enjoy a comfortable web surfing experience.
  • Great picture. Pricey. Tend to not stay on your face. If using for FPV, do search for the Cinemizer goggle mod.
  • Pictures are not that big like screen size claim.
  • I wish the distance between the 2 small OLED screens were adjustable. I could only get one of the screen look sharp because the other screen would be slightly off for my other eye.
Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer
  • It is like seating in the middle of the theater.
  • It is really nice to have a 3D video eyewear, having 150 inches screen attached to your head with 3D capability
  • Works like a dream! The screens look amazing. The view is just like sitting in the middle of a movie theater especially when watching 3d movies.
  • I was worried about the image quality because it is only 720p, but honestly it does look excellent, I don't even notice the difference with 1080p and I don't see any pixels.
  • I feel as though I am sitting in a movie theatre. The sound is unbelievable and the picture is flawless.
  • Sounds great. Until you put it on your head. First it is impossible to properly focus, so some parts of the screen will be just a rainbow ridden unfocused chaos.
  • Even after modifying the focus knobs (see howtos online) I am getting rainbow on one side.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Zeiss Cinemizer OLED (1909-127) Multimedia Video Glasses
  • Light compact goggles that dont look weird on your head (unlike headplay etc),
  • I think Zeiss sacrificed a lot of quality for the size and weight. These are clean looking and ultralight.
  • They are lightweight and the included cases is about the size of a case for sunglasses.
  • I found them very comfortable for watching movies, Videos, Etc.
  • This is light weight and easier to use and carry and adjust if you compare with sony but screen size is really small and surrounding of the screen is blue...for this price i would expect bigger screen size and at least hd quality.
Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer
  • It is so comfortable for me I've actually fallen asleep while using it on a 3+ hour gaming marathon. Also, I wear glasses. So, for it to fit that well with my glasses, I was pleasantly and genuinely surprised!
  • The only minor complaint I have, is that it tends to weigh on my nose and causes slight discomfort after viewing a movie for awhile.
  • Uncomfortable, impractical and bulky.
  • Only thing i don't like it really heavy you kinda have to sleep and wear to watch full movie, if you set down and watch forget it way to heavy you wont be able to finished the movie.

What customers say about "Features"
Zeiss Cinemizer OLED (1909-127) Multimedia Video Glasses
  • Device does NOT overheat causing lagging/frozen pictures (i noticed when flying FPV on iphone screen via USB, iphone gets slower after a while and the picture starts freezing up little bit due to overheating). unlike USB, it's easier for HDMI to process the data.
  • The handles on the both sides can bend, make them hard to break
  • You need a mini HDMI cord to connect to your DJI Drone but what a trip it is like you are flying.
  • These have headphones that can be used for watching movies, etc. The build quality and battery life is great (easily get a couple hours) and being able to recharge via USB is nice.
  • Screen resolution isn't HD (it's 870x500). As Lightbridge on the DJI Phantom 3 is about 720p, I wish the screen resolution was 720p as well to have sharper image. Screen resolution is sharp enough to fly FPV without any problems, but it isn't HD and not 100% sharp,
Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer
  • The built-in sound with Dolby 5.1 surround sound does the trick for games and movies, but for ego shooter MP FPS games, turtle beaches X41 or newer work better.
  • The screen looks huge. If you put it on 3D it looks like 150 inch at 12 feet and in 2D it look like 750 inch at 60 feet, which if you think about it is the same thing, but trust me you really do notice it that way depending if the content is in 3D or 2D.
  • Beautiful OLED display, amazing motion.
  • Picture is huge just like in imax theater. playing regular 2d from netflix is amazing. Some full screen 3d movie is very immersive almost like watch imax 3d. 3d effect come closed just like you seeing in movie theater.
  • At first it was hard for me to figure out how to set it up, everything was in Japanese.
