Rated 5 out of 5 by Greaper Why didn't I buy this ages ago?
I was hesitant for some time to go 3D after the poor light quality of stereoscopic 3D gaming. Eventually I decided to upgrade my monitor and buy this. After roughly 10 hours of gaming with the 3D Vision 2 kit, I doubt that I would enjoy any game that isn't in 3D from now on.
The kit itself can be set up by a 2 year old in less than 3 minutes, it's that easy. The only gripe I have is that whenever Nvidia updates are installed, you have to set up the 3D glasses again, but since you'll already have the emitter connected, it is not a major issue and takes less than 10 seconds.
Before the purchase, I noted that some reviewers reported discomfort both physically and visually. The only discomfort I experienced was on the bridge of my nose but a quick swop of the supplied alternative nose pieces solved the problem. Visually I have not had any issues, often playing in full 3D depth for hours on end without any problems. The scroll wheel located on the back of the IR transmitter works flawlessly and allows precise adjustment of the depth, with an on-screen display popping up while adjusting to show you how low or high your setting is.
To date I have not had the battery of the glasses go flat while gaming. Averaging 3hrs a day, 5 days a week on a single charge is more than good enough for me and the only reason I haven't allowed the battery to go flat is because 2D gaming just isn't the same anymore, so I make sure the glasses are charged for the next gaming session.
As far as games go, I'm currently re-playing Thief 4, GTA V, Just Cause 3, Far Cry 4 and SC Blacklist because after testing the 3D waters with Thief 4 and seeing how much better an already good game could be, I had to try the rest and haven't been disappointed. I'll be re-installing L.A. Noire after writing this review as I've seen other reviewers stating it's a must.
Once you've set up the 3D option in each game's graphics options menu, the games will automatically start up in 3D and switch off the 3D once you exit the game, so no hassles there. My Acer Predator GN246HL monitor also switches modes automatically so there's no fiddling about with settings every time you want to play in 3D.
Overall I'm really glad I bought this kit. The quality pouch supplied with the kit is an added bonus too, that helps keep the glasses clean in-between gaming sessions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by trevor5a I bought these on a whim
I find that I really like the 3D effect that these glasses provide. I've only tried them with a few games so far, but the extra feeling of depth that you get with them is very enjoyable. THey take a little getting used to, as you can see the screen flickering for 1-2 minutes after you start using them, but, for me, that stops being noticed and I enjoy the extra immersion
also, I believe that using these glasses reduces my feelings of nausea that I frequently get with 3D games. without them I can manage only bursts of 30 minutes, but with them on I can carry on for ages

Very simple plug and play way more games support Nvidia 3d vision than i was lead to believe. Adds a fantastic new dimension to your gaming.

The apparatus is well made and appears robust and fit for its intended use. Set up is simple using the supplied USB lead. Do these glasses work and produce a third dimensional effect - yes, they do, quite markedly.
I have used them rather infrequently since buying them with my ' all singing, all dancing ' Asus 120 Hz monitor. My reason is I am not sure if the effect produced is worth the discomfort of wearing them. If you were viewing the screen without glasses then I am sure the glasses would be fine on their own. In my case, I am wearing these glasses over ' cheaters' , which is relatively fine but also I am using full cover headphones which is not OK as they force the pads on the stems into the side of my head which doesn't exactly add to the enjoyment of the game. So is this extra 3D effect, over and above the one your brain already creates while viewing events on a 2D screen, worth the effort I am not sure. I am working on a means of padding the legs of the glasses. If it works then maybe I will use them more.
