ソニー 3D対応ヘッドマウントディスプレイ “Personal 3D Viewer”SONY HMZ-T2
pour sony HMZ1 rien à dire sublime epoustoufflant cinema à la maison son clair image de tres bonne qualite grand ecran
moi je le conseil à mes amis
dommage qu'on ne peut partager avec les autres c'est individuel et le poids aussi c'est lourd et la deuxieme version HMZ2 est moins lourd et malheuresement je n'ai pas pu tester et c'est dommage et je me demande si je continurais à commander sur amazon.fr
1) looks cool, no one else has these and enhances my geek factor
2) 3D projector + 3D glasses + 3D converter is about $1200+ for a decent setup. This is $800 in comparison.
3) this takes up almost no room at all. No room needed for projecting anything either. It's just a headset.
So having used it for a few days here are my thoughts:
1) It takes a while to adjust the headset so that its comfortable. Mainly, you can't stand up with this for too long. I can use this with my PS Move semi-reclining, but fully standing up is not possible due to being so front heavy. I mainly use this lying down on my bed, and after 3 hours your forehead will begin to get uncomfortable.
2) Picture quality is pretty amazing. I've used the Myvu Crystal viewer before so I've used these HUDs before, but these OLED screens are fantastic. Picture is bright and clear. 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. So why didn't Sony just build this in? When would I ever NOT use the light guard? Its annoying to fit that thing in.
4) 3D quality is good. Some other reviewers say its the BEST, and I would say things don't pop up that much, but its true there's no ghosting or anything. I haven't tried other 3D viewers so maybe this is the best and I'm just expecting too much. I watched Transformers: Dark of the Moon, played Uncharted 3 and some scenes were indeed quite immersive. but overall 3D is underused in most movies and games.
5) Audio quality is good. The surround is pretty amazing. There were times I thought MY phone was ringing or someone was knocking on MY door. But it was just the game.
6) Great integration with SONY PS3. I just plug in the HDMI and I'm good to watch movies and play games. You'd most want to use it with a PS3 anyways, I don't think hooking it up to a PC will be optimal experience.
Overall - is it worth $800? For single guys like me who play alot of single player games and watch movies by themselves and live in a studio - yes this is amazing. You cannot find a 75" 3D TV and 5.1 SS setup for only $800. 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. Just get a TV or use a computer monitor or projector instead. That's my 2 cents. 4 stars. The only problem I have with it is the inability to use it standing up or for longer periods of time.
First, the positive is that the 3D effect itself is amazing. With each eye having its own display isolated from the other eye, there is zero crosstalk.
As for the negatives...
Comfort isn't great. It's possible to make it very comfortable, but this often impacts the image quality. In order to get the best quality, I really had to ratchet it down against my forehead to limit the movement of the device and force my eyes as close to the lenses as possible. The greater the distance between your eyes and the lenses, the harder it is to get good focus on the entire image. If you wear glasses, be careful. I tried it briefly with mine instead of my contacts and couldn't get it to fit correctly at all due to the way the frames of the glasses physically came into contact with the viewer.
Not all of the accessories are well thought out. The light blockers, in particular, are prone to simply falling off. I would state that the cables are very cumbersome, but that's expected since this wasn't really intended as a portable device.
The screens are only 720p. This is very noticeable given the level of magnification used to try and produce a large screen experience. When using the viewer with a PC, the pixel structure was very apparent, particularly on text and small graphics. The effect was also readily apparent when watching movies. The 720p screens may be in part due to the lack of 60Hz 3D support at 1080p over HDMI 1.4 with many devices.
I had a difficult time getting the entire image in focus. There was always one corner that was blurry, though the particular corner would vary with the adjustments. This was very noticeable with text and games, less so with movies but still very annoying. The eye adjustments are not precise enough and the range of adjustment is too limited to completely solve the problem.
I could probably live with the above, if not for the single biggest deal breaker...
The light from the screens illuminates the viewing lenses and the entire path from the lenses to the screens. It's literally like you're looking down a tunnel at the screens because you can see everything in-between. This completely ruins the illusion of having a large screen in front of you. If they could find a way to keep everything between your eye and the screens completely dark, then this could realistically feel like a large screen directly in front of you.
I know this product has been revised since I tried the HMZ-T2 version, but I'm skeptical that they could've possibly fixed all these issues so quickly.
1. The 3d is the best I've ever seen. Because 2 screens are used, one for each eye, there is no flickering, no dimming, and no degradations of the image due to showing only half at one time. This is pure, bright, and brilliant.
2. The picture, even though it's only 720p per eye, is plenty sharp and clear. This is mostly due to the great blacks and vibrant colors produced by the OLED screens.
3. Super easy to setup. Use the included adaptor box to plug your HDMI into and pass through to where it plugged into before. Turn it on, adjust as needed for fit, and off you go.
1. The fit, yeah the fit. Out if the box I believe it's impossible to get a comfortable fit. In fact I had a part of my forehead go numb after 10 minutes of my initial try. And I mean full on compressed nerve numb. After some modification with Velcro straps, not included, I can play video games for about 3 hours or watch a movie for the same amount of time. If this is enough for you then this is probably worth a purchase.
2. This is minor but the power cord for the base unit is short. This means you need a very long HDMI cable AND an extension cord to play at any distance from you game system or movie player.
Overall the experience is immersive and enjoyable. This review answers the questions I still had before getting the unit but please let me know if you have further questions. This headset deserves more purchases, I think it gets passed up use to misunderstandings a lot.
1. Pretty heavy on my head despite me lifting weights, i have a big head and adjustment is at its maximum.The description says it's light and comfortable..NOT!.one of the reviews here mention that too.
2. 720p and blurry.. yeah its blurry on the sides despite me adjusting the headmount physically and system wise. you need a good reclining position to keep it for good viewing. my friend was here when it arrived he has a low nose bridge and the headmount just wont hold..he has to sit on my recliner and tilt his head up. 30mins later his and my nose bridge is red from the weight.the picture is somehow crisp at the middle..3d and 2d rating just good not great.
3. 5.1 surround..i dont think so.. the headset is flimsy and in a few usage i feel it will snap.i suggest to change it with real surround earphone.Ask Astro(gaming headset manufacturer).their earphone is way better that what's integrated.
4. price....it's not worth it. add a few hundreds and you'll have a 55" 3d LG.(which I also have). cmon Sony. $800 bucks for 720p,flimsy headphone and no portability options? if this item was around 300-400. i'll prolly give it 4-5 stars.
here's my recommendation. add an sd slot for portability, for travelling (plane and roadtrip passenger seat), rechargeable headset. otherwise its just like sitting in front of 100" tv yes just 100 not 165. with a weights on your head.add top cover on the forehead part.expand headsizing strap too.
Better luck next time. maybe t5 version..sony might consider the portability part.
So with that, of course, the viewing experience itself is excellent, and it is truly amazing to see 3D movies rendered in full bright color and not dimmed by polarizing or shuttering. I do find it kind of hard to trick my brain into the feeling that I am watching an actual large "150 inch" screen, but that's probably because I have a projection setup at home so I am used to seeing the real thing. But it's still very cool.
However, going back to the glasses/contacts issue, I think this device would be much more usable if they added focusing lenses to the eyepeices similar to what is found on binoculars or optical viewfinders, and allow people to use this without their own corrective lenses. Also, the darkening shades provided - fail. Who designed these things? Very hard to get them in place and yet they fall off with the slightest touch.
So all in all, I wanted to love this thing, but for now I can't say I do because of the issues noted above. However, it is a unique and fun thing. If it were $200 less I would not have a single complaint, but at the current price point the shortcomings are considerable.
Very nice displays, really amazing picture. 720p is the only headset with such resolution. The 3D is the best. The sound...not bad, but this is not the center of it.
The picture...well it is big and the way to imagine it is the same as sitting in a cinema at the center. When you put it on, you see a big screen and the screen seem a little far away, like the displays are not 1 inch from the eye, but 5-6 inches.
This is the big failure of Sony. These glasses are heady and all the weight is on the front, not balanced. I get that this is unavoidable, but here are some stuff (REALLY CHEAP) they could've done, that would have made a huge differance:
1. More padding for the nose - different kinds, different stiffness
2. Padding under the headset to rest not on the nose, but on the cheeks as well - this will really help with the weight on the fron
3. Head strap - this is really easy to do and implement and will definitely take the weight of the front
All these 3 do NOT cost more than 1$ (all of them!), maybe for option number 2 more, but Sony I don't know why neglected to do any of this. It's like the product managers and the tester just put the headset, turned it on and when they saw that it works, they just sold it as is. This is really STUPID and very bad for the company, as this would be my last purchase from Sony. I've worn these over and hour and the pain in my nose was excruciating without the padding. Still one positive is that my eyes were not worn out after every several hours of gaming and this was my first worry when I bought them.
* I seem to be one of the guys on the planet who achieve a perfect fit with only the provided straps, i. e. without any modding. I understand that some people are less lucky here, in which case everything said below will not apply to the same extent.
* I have no problem with my glasses. I own several pairs with different frame designs (among them one JFRey and one Face-A-Face with rather bulky frames), all of which fit. I don't have to use contact lenses. But again, some people might have a different experience here.
* The image quality is brilliant. Contrast couldn't be much better. Even if it is not 1080p, you can watch 1080p material downscaled and it looks pretty good.
* 3D content is where this device shines; it doesn't get much better than this. Naturally there is no blur, no crosstalk, it's not exaggerated, it's just how it should be. I've never had a better visual gaming experience.
* To achieve good immersion, I typically darken the room completely, so that there is no ambient light, and lay down on a couch or bed in half-upright position with a squeezed cushion behind my head, so that the back of the head gets some support. (The unit is somewhat on the heavy side, after all. Although if you're playing a game where your character is supposed to be wearing a heavy helmet, that can probably add to the immersion.)
* After one hour, your forehead typically goes numb and you need to take a break. 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. Well with this device, this is practically not possible and you will need to take breaks.
* Any kind of abrupt or repetitive movement with your hands transfers to the unit and you will lose the ability to focus on the image for a moment. I think that's a real issue for PS Move/Wii controllers.
* While the built-in headphones are OK quality-wise and fine for me, it is a bit unfortunate that they are not detachable, so you cannot use your normal audio equipment which might be of higher quality. (As for the virtual surround feature, for me it doesn't sound considerably different than normal 2.0 headphones.)
Does it do what it supposed to do? YES!
The best way to see 3D! amazing. Now I cannot watch 3D movies on TVs anymore, I own 3 of the best 3D TVs, with SONY headset you are inside the movie no way to describe it. just try it!
Discomfort while you are wearing it? NOT IMPORTANT, you will forget that when you see the 3D effect. And by the way you can adjust it for minimum discomfort.
Do yourself a favor and get one.
-Watched How to Train Your Dragon in 3D
-Played Crysis 2 in 3D
-Did some work in Excel
-Did some web browsing
Background. I make my living working on computers and associated technology. I normally use a 3 screen setup: 1 16:9 23" screen and 2 16:10 22" screens. I'm used to watching TV on a 37" 1080p screen. And I have a very bad astigmatism.
The image quality of this visor is very high. Yes, if you really want to look for them, you can see the pixels but I really didn't notice them no matter what I was doing. Colors are very vibrant.
The 3D, when watching Train a Dragon, was amazing - very impressive, very cool. Surprisingly, it was much less impressive in Crysis 2. At first I wasn't even sure it was active but after a bit I was able to at least notice that it was 3D. I'm sure that's a Crysis 2 issue, though, not the visor.
It's effectively unusable for work - for me anyway. Others noted the blurring at the edges. Maybe it's worse for me because of my astigmatism, but it's so bad that I can't read my taskbar nor the location bar in my web browser. I'm effectively unable to read anything if it's not right in the center of the screen - unless I adjust it, in which case I can read the edges but the center is now blurry. Flunk for office productivity.
Web browsing was mixed. As I said, I was unable to read or even really see the top, bottom, or sides - making it difficult to see what page I was on, or to click a new tab. On the other hand, images were impressive. Yes, guys, those kinds of images too.
Comfort. In a word, not. Actually, the pressure on the forehead, while not comfortable, wasn't as bad as I feared. The eyestrain, however, was horrible - and not just in 3D. If anything, I had the easiest time when watching the movie. But, again, this could be a result of my poor eyesight. If yours is better, you might not have the eyestrain.
Ease of use. Not as bad as I feared. It did take me several minutes to figure out how to adjust everything just right for me. But, once I learned all the tricks, I could put it on and have it right in 10 seconds or less.
Stars. Definitely not a 5-star product. I debated between 3 or 4 stars but, because of the high price and its total uselessness as even a short-term work tool, I settled on 3.
Summary. Do not buy if you have a bad astigmatism. If you're looking for something to watch 3D movies or play 3D games, and you don't mind some forehead discomfort, this might be the toy for you. Personally, until Google Glass comes out, I'd rather have a couple of high-res 27" monitors. And I just might pay less than $800 for the two.
But it was fun to try.
Straight out of the box, the user will feel like they're being subjected to a medieval torture device for any use upwards of half an hour. This simple problem of weight distribution can be rectified by a simple DIY add-on. I used a nylon weave shoulder strap that came as an extra with one of my laptop carry cases; however, you could procure these materials from a crafts store for a couple of bucks. Just overlap a short section on the strap and stitch it to create a loop on one end to run through the rear support band and trim the other end to a narrower width of 3/4 of an inch (the strap used is 1 1/2 inches wide) for about 5 to 6 inches to weave into the gap between the body of the unit and the hinged forehead support. Then either glue or stitch one band of velcro on the end of the trimmed section and another in the middle part of the strap that would rest on top of the head for the trimmed end to stick to. This will allow adjustment to suit your head size. The strap I used also came with a spare shoulder pad which I just threaded through the lower support and it does help to have another pad on that area. By doing this, the entire unit's weight is shifted from being solely on the forehead and distributed over the arc of the cranium; infinitely more comfortable for hours of gameplay.
As for the clarity, when I first started using it, there was a very noticeable blurred margin on the left end, which interfered with gameplay icons displayed on that side of the screen and just looked plain awful in general. To rectify this, peel off the glued on pad on the forehead support and then wrap one of the stretchy fabric pad covers provided over the support and stuff it with a few cotton balls. This will close the distance between your eyes and the dual lenses on the unit, thus completely eliminating the blurry spot. Furthermore, this modification will work just fine if you wear eyeglasses. 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. I'll post a couple of pictures in the customer images section to give you a reference for this add-on and rest assured, it is really easy to make and it'll take your gaming to a new level.
2d and 3d lived up to the hype, the sound doesn't disappoint.
As for the rest, it could have been designed better to balance it's weight problem.
When you first get it lined up it's great, after awhile it begins to slip which causes everything to slip out focus.
To much of the weight is then put on the users nose which after an hr. your like ouch!
A bit pricy to find out if it's going to fit you face, on that note you need to really use it to know which pads and strap setting are going to work best.
it's wired so on the plus side no weight from a battery pack.
