Caution when buying from eBay

If you are going to buy one of these from someone on eBay make sure you get the proper info from them first or you may end up disappointed! The motors that are used to move the mirrors burn out easily, and since there are more moving parts than the average game console there is a lot of potential for things to break. Also keep in mind that each eye is separate so if one of them is not working properly you will NOT see the 3d effect. You will also want to find an auction that has the eye shield/visor included, otherwise you will get a lousy 3d experience unless you are playing in a pitch dark room.

Also, this thing sucks batteries so try to get the AC adapter!

The VB is a fun toy to play with but truth be told it is still just a toy, and rather gimmicky. You will most likely get tired of playing it quickly. At least it is better than the Tiger R-Zone. Anyone else remember that POS?

I don't have the eye shield, and tracking one down is pretty hard. When I could, I could never justify the price people were asking.

As far as battery life goes, I never had the battery box. If you can't find an AC adapter, at least find the AC Tap. The adapter is the same as was used on the Super NES (original version, anyway, I don't know if they used it on the new one).
