they are realy cool i have them. Take a bit to get used to but u will ove them. You got to tweak them a little to get them to work right.

Don't give up when you try them for the first time and it looks bad. It takes some tweaking to get them to look good. One of the most important things is to make sure your refresh rate is high. At least 85Hz is good.
When you say tweak, what exactly do you mean? Also, do you have the ones that are advertised on this site?

LAST EDITED ON Nov-23-02 AT 01:33PM (EST)[p]Hello Mith,
I've got a pair of "H3D" brand that I bought from Tiger Direct and the glasses look exactly the same as the ones pictured in the eDeminsional ads.
Really a neat effect but for me they make the scenery way too dark even with brightness turned up.
I don't remember all the settings but one thing you can adjust is "separation." There are two complete frames on the screen and the glasses force you to look at one frame from one eye and the other frame from the other eye and the further you separate the frames the greater the 3-D effect. You have to start with small separation and gradually increase as your eyes and brain become accustomed to the effect.
Be warned that if you have epilepsy or similar problems or headaches you shouldn't attempt to use these glasses. There is a warning to that effect in the instructions.
You have to have the nVidia 3D drivers that are specially written for this purpose for them to work. I think all the different versions have a 3-D set you can get
Thanks for the reply. I might give'm a try. Did you ever figure out how to get around the darkness issue? I can hardly wait to get a pair!

Sorry Mith, I didn't find any way around the darkness problem. Maybe someone here knows what to do about it.
How's you're college, oops, I mean collage doing?

I had a bit of a horror story with this product. I used to have an ATI Radeon 8500 Video card. I was considering purchasing these goggles, and went to their site to check for system compatibility. Their site said that they were compatible with ATI Radeon cards, so I made the purchase. I live in Canada so I really coughed up the dough for these things (exchange and customs). Once I received the goggles I immediately had issues, and couldn't get them working at all. After several days going back and forth with their tech's by email, they determined that my video card was not compatible! I told them that I checked the site initially, and refered to the section, even the page that said that my card was ok. Within a day they changed the wording on that page to say that only certain Radeon models were compatible, and they told me that there had been a typo on that one page, and were sorry for the inconvenience! Sadly, mine wasn't one of the compatible models. They said I could return the product, but I live in Canada, and the shipping and customs fees that I would have to absorb by returning were almost as much as the goggles, so I put them in a drawer for another day.
In the end, I finally purchased a new NVidia GeForce 4 Ti4200. The goggles do work, and the effect is pretty cool. I have to agree that they darken the effect quite a bit though.
I'm still a little scorned by the whole thing I guess. So buyer beware!

In advanced stereo settings you can configure keys to increase or decrease the darkness in 3D mode. Simple really! Set mine to Shift G, (Brighter) & Shift V, (Darker)!
