Installation:

The glasses install easily. You don't even have to reboot (although the manual recommends it) to complete the installation. Just unplug your monitor, stick the plug to the VRJoy's up to your video card, then plug your monitor back into that, run the VRCaddy installation, and your ready to go.

Performance/Features:

Although these glasses have great potential, their performance now is average. Many of the games I tried them with had problems. Of course the games that did work flawlessly, did wonders for your eyes! It's a cool feeling to think you can just reach out and punch that baddy on your screen instead of shooting him. (Glide Underground accepts no responsibility for you breaking your monitor) I mainly wish their performance for Unreal Tournament was better, as they looked great in it.

Price:

The price is about the same as the 3D Revelators. And since the VRJoy's are compatible with a number of OpenGL games, and not just Direct3D, you may be better off purchasing a set of VRJoy's, and hoping the VRCaddy program matures even further.

Overall:

The VRJoy's are a great set of stereoscopic 3D glasses, and with some improvements to the VRCaddy software they may be the best and most versatile 3D glasses out there. But for now, we decided to give the glasses a rating of 3/5 stars, since they definitely need some improvements in both compatibility and performance. If your in the market to invest in this type of hardware, then consider the VRJoy's.

Pluses

  • Compatible with both OpenGL and Direct3D games
  • Long cord
  • Easy to install (no reboot required!)
  • In the games they work good with the 3D images look amazing
  • Only require 100Hz refresh rate instead of 120Hz like 3D Revelators
Minuses
  • Stick out of the back of your video card about 2 1/2 inches
  • Still have compatibility and slight display problems
  • Bulky, flimsy glasses
