Nvidia adds cable to its 3D Vision glasses

Written by Slobodan Simic
nvidia

Drops the price to US $99
In addition to the recent price-drop (sometime in March) for its wireless 3D Vision glasses, Nvidia today added the wired option as well.

Everything remains the same except for the fact that this time around, you will will not have that much freedom when it comes to moving your head around, courtesy of the USB cable. The original bundle should still be selling for around US $149 while the extra wireless glasses should be selling at around US $119, which is still a bit more expensive than the new wired solution.

Since displays with support for 3D Vision aren't that rare these days, it sounds like the right time to introduce such a product. The new wired 3D Vision glasses should be available pretty soon with a suggested price tag of US $99.

"Since displays with support for 3D Vision aren't that rare these days, it sounds like the right time to introduce such a product."

Well no they are not so rare, but the ones supporting native 120hz input are kinda rare indeed.

I mean after all this time, there are hardly 19 monitors that are 3dvision ready.

The larger ones are God awefuly expensive and you still cannot find those 27'' LGs and ACERs in Europe!

Good to have a wired alternative though. Thanks for the news!

Bwaahahaha!! What kinda head do you have? Do you move your head around during gameplay reacting to what is happening on screen?

its annoying enough have to take off a headset every time you want a bite to eat or drink or go to the toilet. a second cable would be annoying as hell.

Currently 3D sucks. For now it will remain a niche technology. The only benefit I see with 3D HDTV's is companies end up making the 2D within the new 3D HDTV's look much better than a none 3D HDTV.

And yet it still costs around $200, in Australia.

3D has still a long way to go, until we see at least 20 or more real 120Hz monitors with normal price, not 20"+ with prices 300-500 euros, that's not what I called normal. Until then its pointless to talk about 3D.

P.S. Also more vendors need to put 3d bundle hardware(glasse s and support for more games/movies etc), I don't like the nvidia way..you want 3d you Must buy nvidia 3d glasses.

Seriously, who on earth wants to wear 3D glasses for hours at a time? They are not only very uncomfortable, but they also give you headaches after 45min to 1hr of wearing the darn things... Companies need to stick to 2D and make that better than ever until they release a REAL glassless 3D HDTV.
