Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The Sony HMZ-T1 can take some time to get used to, it can also take some time to adjust the straps and support to the users head but once you have set up the HMZ to sit comfortably on your head the experience can be very immersive.
One of my main concerns before using the HMZ was the surround sound through just two earpieces, however the overall sound quality and sound direction from the HMZ`s earpieces gives an excellent surround sound feel.
The picture is sharp and the colours vivid but due to the two displays you can find it hard to focus on the extremes on the display. I found this to be a little disappointing but when you are watching a movie or playing a game you tend to be focused on the centre on the screen and you do not notice the soft focus in the far edges. The Image size of comparable to being sat in the centre of a good size cinema and the screen does not feel too close to you.
3D on the HMZ is very impressive with none of the crosstalk of flicker sometime seen with stereoscopic 3D systems, combined with the excellent picture quality makes for an impressive and very immersive experience.

Bad points:
The HMZ is easy to use and easy to setup, the only downside for me is the duration you can comfortably use the HMZ. I have had the feeling of eye strain after a while, and the weight of the unit can press on your noise and forehead after some time.

James, Wolverhampton Sports and games fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
3D Superb, I've always had an issue with 3d and this is flawless, use it with Nvidia 3d vision and PS3 games which made it an unforgettable experience, they've never looked better.
Product with fantastic potential, best immersion level I've ever experienced from my films and games.
Bad points:
Sound Quality is lacking in base from speakers compared to my surround sound, even to my bose headphones, and as far as i know i cant send the audio to my Amp.
Cant adjust individual eye lens, doesnt effect me personally but a mate said the image refused to get into sharp focus.
Oled's aren't bright enough for my tastes colors lack compares to my Samsung SuperAmoled on my note and its 400+ nits compared to the 200 fail to impress, moreover the blacks aren't as absolute and fail to have the same wow factor.
Only 720p, realize there are restraints with technology of HDMI but a 1080p 60frames per second per eye ability would make this THE way to enjoy games and movies, and also add some bragging rites.
Lastly its a bit top heavy it needs some counterbalance on the back
