"Ugh, the Eyestrain..."2.5 starson by Ziljan
Pros: See your favorite games in 3D
Will be amazing, if they ever get up 77 FPS Per Eye
Cons: Limited to 60 FPS
Only usable for a short duration
Summary: The bottom line for this technology is EYESTRAIN. Those of us that still use CRT monitors for work will tell you that running at lower than 77 FPS will cause serious headaches. This is because the human eye refreshes at between 70-80 times per second. A paltry 60 frames per second (since the glasses alternatingly blackout left/right eyes) will still register on the retina as darkness. This pulsing will cause the same kind of headaches you get from trying to read below a back-lit ceiling fan.
In short, for prolonged play, this technology is not ready for prime time.
On a side note, why don't they just bring back high FPS CRT monitors just for 3D use? They are rediculously cheaper and produce much better images. Of course the glasses would have to be adjusted to higher FPS as well.
