Alright, a very short review after playing around with it for about 30 minutes. Once I spend more time with it I shall make a much better review, and a video review possibly as well. But for now this will help those that can't wait!
I have the HMZ-T1 so I will be comparing it to this.
Outa the box the T-2 is noticeably smaller and much lighter than the T-1, when I picked it up I was surprised. Since I had my T-1 connected up, I decided to first try the T-2 on my T-1's pass through box. That didn't work at all, so pulled out the pass through and connected it up. One thing I noticed right away is the back straps are much better quality. Instead of using little hooks to connect, they adjust using sliders kinda like a zip tie. So much easier and feel a bit stronger also. Only down side to this is my cushion pads will not work on the T-2 so I have to make some that will. Once on your head the T-2 feels much better than the T-1, so much lighter and less pain. However, still rest on your nose and causes a little pain just not as bad. Maybe after fooling with it some more I can adjust the straps better to fix this. But so far I think I may need to design some pads for this one as well to help myself and others. The forehead pad is much bigger but still seems to push against your forehead, yes even after 30 minutes I had a red spot.
It goes through about the same info on startup as the T-1, select language and blah blah...
I slapped in Resident Evil Afterlife and powered up the T-2, a bit confusing because the buttons are in different areas now. I am so used to the T-1.
I plugged in my Denon AH-D510 headphones and started watching. At first the sound had to much bass and sounded bad. So I went to the menu and amazingly you can actually adjust if you are using inner headphones or outer! I chose outer and that made a world of difference. After fooling with the bass, treble and choosing cinema mode it sounded the way I wanted it. Like a damn IMAX in my ears!
In short, using your own headphones kicks ass and I love it much better than the T-1's built in crappy headphones.
After this I had to adjust the screen for my eyes. This was WAY more eaasier than the old T-1, since you can adjust both eyes independently. After doing this, I can report I got a 100% FULL SCREEN view with no blurry edges at all... A perfect picture, unlike the T-1 which was near impossible to do.
I sit back on my couch, cranked the volume and watched about 20 minutes of Resident evil Afterlife and truly felt I was in an IMAX, only no people there to bother me.... Just me and my super big screen, it felt great.
I haven't messed with picture settings, but looks like you can do more than the T-1, I noticed a noise reduction setting in the menu but it was not selecttable yet.. Not sure why?! It also has a few other modes I'll have to try out later. Have not tried games yet or lag, but I have a feeling it may be better.
More to come when I get time, but in short this is actually a good improvement over the T-1 as far as I can tell so far.
