Sony's HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer performs as advertised, creating an immersive 3D experience that simulates a 150-inch display. However, it's heavy and uncomfortable, expensive, and requires that you remain tethered to the TV and power supply through cables. While the HMZ-T1 is a major improvement over previous generations of head-mounted displays, most people will be better off putting the same $800 toward a good 3D-capable HDTV set, and a couple of pairs of 3D glasses. If you factor in what it would cost to share your 3D experience with three or four friends using the HMZ-T1, even a high-end plasma set may start looking like a bargain.
