Doubt that'll happen, the tech is too nice. I got it last time, enjoyed it a bit but ultimately returned it as my main use was as a desktop computer display and the problem with that, is that even if you have it positioned perfectly, it is next to impossible to get all the corners of the screen clearly in your vision. One corner would always be just slightly out of view, which made navigating items in the taskbar a pain. For movies though, and the little bit of gaming I tried out, it was super clear and crisp. Having to plug it into a device also was a pain. If it had a micro sd slot for use without a cable, I would definitely buy and keep 2, one for me and one for the wife.

Reviews say this is a discontinued product so it either works or your out of luck. If it was under $100 I would bite.

Picked this up a couple weeks back. Chief complaint would be that you cannot change the brightness. Other than that, it fits pretty good if not a little weighty, the picture clarity is surprisingly good even though it's 720p, audio is good and battery life hasn't been an issue. For about $100, it's about right. Definitely can't use it as a computer monitor due to edge softness. Great for video though.

Exact same experience. Mine also developed a stuck pixel after roughly an hour of use. Also, last time this popped up few were speaking to the quality of the 3D and honestly I found the effect to be pretty minimal, but to be upfront I didn't do much to try and adjust it.

All that said, it's a nice display with a high refresh rate inside there, and if you could get it all within the margins and had no stuck pixels I could see this being cool for someone who travels a lot. Way more immersive than using your phone and while it's a little bulky you can throw it into your carry on without a problem I'm sure.

Will also echo what was said regarding the resolution -- this doesn't look like 720P at all. I played a little of Battlefield 5's campaign on it and while it wasn't anywhere near as nice as our 4K TV, it definitely looked a damn sight better than 720P.

Wow I didnt know a stuck pixel was possible with this thing. I was a couple movies in 3d with it (the Meg, Avenger Infinity War) and actually enjoyed them alot, I should actually ad that as another plus to be honest because it is allowing you to watch 3d movies without the customary dim/darkness wearing 3d glasses causes. I also would have liked a way to adjust the brightness as they're wonderfully bright, but sometimes too much. They also had fantastic sound.
Now that I'm thinking more about it all, I'd highly recommend them for someone who flies alot and wants to watch movies (or porn) while flying. it worked very well connected to my phone by using a USB c hub that had a hdmi port on it, was how I watched those 3d movies.

How's this as compared to Oculus Go or any other VR headset when it comes to only watching movies?

Product page indicates brightness control can be adjusted on one of the eye pieces. Attached image was snipped from the page.

I don't own one so can't verify.

The website says no, because the max resolution of this device is 720p and the minimum resolution of a 3d bluray is 1080p. This per their FAQ, I wasn't aware a 3d blu stream couldn't be downgraded or was non-playable on, say, a 720p TV.

I have owned and regularly use the go for over a year now so I can give you some good info here. The go is not as bright and vibrant and if you adjust the picture size the same as you'd get with the glyph, using for just watching movies, then the resolution of the go is far worse. This gives 720p on a screen that takes up 40 degrees fov, however I believe it is a bit less than that, like 35. The go gives you 110 fov, but stretches a lot more pixels over that fov. With the picture only taking up 35 degrees fov on the go, you're getting a picture resolution of about 500x300, vs 1280x720 for the glyph. The Go however can customize screen size though, so if you set the picture size to about 85% of the max fov, then you're getting around HD resolution on a what would look like a 150" screen from like 10ft away. You can also do many other vr based things with the go, it's wireless, has onboard storage (not enough however, a micro sd card slot is needed on both of these and every type of similar device), and excels at vr porn. The Go also needs no adjustment other than tightness of the headstrap, it's one size fits all. You do however need either good or corrected vision, there's no adjustment. I have worn it comfortably with glasses for the last year.
Without a doubt the go is the better device.

The Glyph headset has a much smaller field of view (around 30 degrees) than a VR headset so it looks kind of like watching a 50-60" TV from 8 feet away, with 1280x720 pixels for each eye. Whereas a VR headset has a much larger FOV but when you watch a movie on it, it ends up being lower res because you only use a portion of the display.

I've used both for watching movies and I would say it depends on whether you want a better looking image at a 30-degree FOV (Glyph) or a lower res image at 50+ degree FOV.

Cool to know. I didnt own (or borrow I guess) it for long enough for the brightness to bug me, but even still I didnt find it to be a deal breaker
