Light

Light:
"The main problem is leak of light, but this problem can be solved if you are not wear glasses or use it inside a dark room."
_
"Only thing I hate is the light blockers are made from rubber and sometimes they fall out of their sockets and light shines in from the outside world."
_
"Its like having a 75 inch TV in front of you, but you can still see the edges.3) Light guard is annoying to put on, and you pretty much always need to have it to block light."
_
"Using the device in bright daylight was decent, though some light did filter-in."
_
"The description says it's light and comfortable..NOT!"
_
"The light blocker also does a good job to eliminate light from below, but I found that a light blocker would have also been good for the top."

_
"- - EXPERIENCE - -Using this viewer is literally like watching a film or playing a game in a hugely sized cinema screen, but for your own personal use, it's a weird yet awesome sensation that is one to be personally experienced."
_
"Basically for my head size, there's no way to be comfortable and see the outer edges of the screen clearly at the same time."
_
"There is literally nothing to complain about in that case, since the screens look great."
_
"Overall it just felt kinda cheap and the OLED screens weren't the best in my opinion."
_
"As far as the size is concerned, the virtual screen is truly impressive in size, and resembles that of being in a private IMAX theater."
_
"However, the OLED screens themselves are bright enough to still remain comfortably visible."
_
"Items pop out of the screen, and result in the best 3D television watching experience on the consumer market."
_
"Trust me, after doing this, the appearance of the screen will be be bright and clear in all the glory that Sony intended for it to be."
_
"This new HMZ T-2 has a closer bigger picture ,lighter and seems so easy to get a clear image from every corner of the screen."

Sound

Sound:
"My only problem was I had the surround sound a little high......... hun?"
_
"Being a gamer and never tried 3D games, this was a must buy, and it didn't disappointed me at all, i played Uncharted 3 for something around 5 hours in this device and i have to says that i don't remember the last time the visuals of a game stole me so many Wow, more than the game, that still its really good and fun to play, the 3D looked a m a z i n g, the depth, the layers, they just feel as real as a film, the sound, not being perfect, its pretty good and as good enough as it can be for headphones, the whole experience its really good, and will dare to say that for games visually stunning, this its a perfect tool to get the most of them, just laying in your favourite couch potato."
_
"it has good definition, 2D-3D images, great sound system."
_
"However, main specifications including a virtual OLED 720p display equivalent of '750-inches at 65 feet away', 5.1 channel surround sound, and excellent 3D capabilities remain."
_
"Sound quality is pleasing with the bundled 3.5mm headset, but audiophiles will want to plug in their own pair."
_
"-Sound quality is amazing when you attach your personal headphones, or the included in ear headphones (have a short cord) to the device."
_
"I believe, Sony has set the bar in the visual quality of there product,2d and 3d lived up to the hype, the sound doesn't disappoint."

Video

Video:
"This was very noticeable with text and games, less so with movies but still very annoying."

"This item is very poorly made and super uncomfortable, can not be worn for more then 15-20 minutes straight because the front support starts to become very uncomfortable even starts to feel painful(no exaggeration), I have tried adjusting the back and front support every way possible and I still can't find a way to watch a whole movie without having to stop because of the un-comfort and pain to my forehead, I know my head is not the problem, I have a very normal head and it's not only me that feel's the un-comort everyone in my home has tried it and says the same thing....This is a $100 product at best not even close to $800 in value.....3D is amazing very good but whats the point if you can't enjoy playing a game or watch a movie for more then 15-20 minutes....I have been a faithful Sony fan forever and to be honest this is the first time Sony has let me down big time, I am very upset at Sony for excessively over pricing a product that is poorly designed and did not meet my expectation 1% ...."
_
"This is somewhat of a problem because it's not long enough for one movie, not to mention gaming sessions which can often last for one day without interruption."
_
"On the other hand - if you constantly have friends over, play Wii a lot, watch movies with the gf or what not, this isn't a good option."
_
"Still, Sony's personal 3D head mounted display offers excellent image quality for movie watching, and remains one of the best HMD's on the 'released consumer market'.Detailed Review:Links-Video Review: https: www."
_
"Another added plus is being able to hook up any HDMI device to it such as a video game console or Apple TV or Laptop, and enjoy the content in a large format."
_
"Overall I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a movie theater experience while sitting in your on comfortable recliner at home."
_
"Pros:-3D video is amazing using this product."

Weight

Weight:
"The only major complaint I had besides the humungous weight was peripheral lighting which seemed to seep through the edges of the occular eye-fit."
_
"This simple problem of weight distribution can be rectified by a simple DIY add-on."
_
"As for the rest, it could have been designed better to balance it's weight problem."
_
"Thought it was quite big from the picture and the complaints in reviews about the weight, but when I first opened the box, thought it was just the right size."
_
"I even removed the straps and head rests and mounted it to my bicycle helmet and the weight of the device STILL causes discomfort."
_
"there is a very lenghty adjustment time as far as the straps, headpiece sizes etc, but like my topic says i read and watched MANY reviews, and the only valid (after 10 hrs of use, continous use) complaint there is is the weight and adjustment time."
_
"Watching the movie in a dark room with my head resting on a pillow which took the weight of the headset was the best visual experience I have had with a gadget for ages."
_
"Head strap - this is really easy to do and implement and will definitely take the weight of the frontAll these 3 do NOT cost more than 1$ (all of them!"
_
"Padding under the headset to rest not on the nose, but on the cheeks as well - this will really help with the weight on the fron3."
_
"So once I got it home and put it on, yes, it was hard getting a good fit and by the time I got it to focus perfectly, the weight was crushing my nose and the pad was pressing on my forehead until I got a headache in 10 min."
_
"Pretty heavy on my head despite me lifting weights, i have a big head and adjustment is at its maximum."
