+For example HMZ-T2 : Sony Canada sell it for 1000$ +12% Tax = 1120$ . Ebay sell it for around 700$ +freeshipping + import taxt 42$ + provincal tax 12% = 840$ . 1120-840 => you save 280

I could possibly sell them on my website a bit cheaper.

+You should sell cheaper , or = cheapest seller on Ebay ^^!

According to the JP marketing materials, they are using a newly developed LSI circuit, and the latency
is down to less than 1 frame (they have an asterisk that it depends on the input signal, I'm assuming
that's to cover their butt for interlaced signals). This seems to be a big improvement from the earlier models.

Hope the lenses are improved, still in the thinking box myself if im getting a t3,
post #71 of 582
In Europe 1.300€... i don't think it'll be comfortable...
post #72 of 582
£1300 in the UK makes me sick and is causing strong allergic reaction to all Sony products and pricing policy. I own HMZ T1 and SMD ST1080 so I will probably skip HMZ T3 or buy it from Hong Kong like I did with HMZ T1 (paid no custom duty or tax for some reason)
post #73 of 582

I really don't understand why are the prices so different. How is it possible that HMZ-T3 costs $1000 in US, 1300€ (1760$) in Europe and 1300£ (2070$) in UK? With prices like that, in Europe and UK sony won't sell much of those, especially if HMDs like Avegant come out with low prices and better image quality.  

post #74 of 582
Here in Japan they will cost about $1,100 for the top end model and $900 for the lower

Sadly no pre-orders yet
post #75 of 582
this is interesting as here in the UK only top W is available for pre-order. no low end model on the horizon..... I am not sure that it will be available here at all. Also - I am not sure I need W model. I would have paid $900 for the non-wireless model right now so
post #76 of 582
Only the w in Norway aswell.
post #77 of 582
Preorder? this isn't the PS4
post #78 of 582
yes - preorder. however I can't imagine people queuing and fighting for this £1300 gadget here in the UK knowing that it's only $1000 across the pond. Stuff you, Sony....
However you can enjoy this in Frisco for a very reasonable price which should make you happy

non-W model : 80 000 Yen = 816.35 USD , or 840.68 CAD

Good japanese pricing.
I will buy T3 if it has a very big sweet spot for the eyes and razor sharp from edge to edge. On the T2, the window for sweet spot is too small...gotta adjust here and there just to get a good viewing spot...yet with blurry image towards the left and right sides.
For comfort issues, again, DIY headband is a must.

Hi Paul,
Any update on shipping status? It looks like the pre-order on the Sony Store has been replaced with a 'notify when available' button.

Interested to get a first hand user report.

post #82 of 582
on sony uk it's available for the next day delivery
post #83 of 582
Here in Spain we have to wait until 26-27 nov ;(
I did my preorder 1 month ago at sony.es

Please someone from uk buy it and tell us if its more confortable than t2 and tunnel effect is solved.

Regards
post #84 of 582
it will be very subjective anyway. some people hate HMZ T-1 and T-2, some enjoy with simple comfort mod. you have to try it yourself. I will go to Sony Center here to try and let you know my personal view on this if you want. I own HMZ-T1 which I can wear for 2 hours with no probs. However there is no individual IPD adjustment for each eye, the IPD span is not big enough for me (I am proper XXL head) - on HMZ T3 is bigger, I can't wear my Sennheiser HD650 headphones with T1, no wireless etc. However the T3 price is atrocious in Europe and especially in the UK. I can only probably buy it locally if I spend my £500 paid for my special occasion BD.
post #85 of 582
I owned the hmzt2 and I returned it.
It would be very nice to read your impression borland
post #86 of 582
I hope the T3 is so good that I can skip my projector purchase. Somebody please buy this and tell me it is true. biggrin.gif
post #87 of 582
I've decided to take a risk and spent some unexpected bonus money on this. I can only compare this with the first gen HMZ T1. My first impression is very good. Ergonomics vastly improved and half an hour straight out of the box without any mods did not cause any problems. However I will probably make some small mods in the future. I am short sighted and wear glasses so it's still not very friendly for poor glasses wearers. Especially the bottom light shield is causing problems. The famous sweet spot also depends what glasses I am using at the pointed time. I will try it with contact lenses when I have a new batch delivered to me this week. The optics are definitely better and with slightly wider IPD span I can have ALMOST zero blur on the edges for my proper XXL head! VERY slight blur may be caused by the glasses lenses. Again - will need to try this with contact lenses. It's weird that the picture looks slightly bigger than on HMZ T1 - definitely wider! I can't explain it. There are no geometric distortions at the edges of the image. On HMZ T1 probably because of the blur I had an impression that the edges were slightly curved. Perfect picture on T3 so.
No lag on wireless - I was worried about this. Many picture modes but I've tried all of them on the BluRay movie including game modes. One game mode gives grainy picture and I don't know for which games this mode should be used.
VAST improvements on sound. The supplied earbuds are not bad but the main nirvana comes when you connect high end headphones (I used Sennheiser HD650) directly to the receiver! It blows you away! Plus full size huge Sennheiser HD650 fits very well on your head with HMZ-T3!
So overall - very first very subjective positive impressions!
post #88 of 582
You tryed the curved screen movie mode?
post #89 of 582
2 theater modes with curved screen. Both look smashing!..... but only work on 2d movies.... gives you an impression of being in the cinema - well done Sony.
