Setting Things Up

Installation was very easy, especially with the well written instructions included in the box. Hookup is done through a VGA adaptor that plugs directly into your video card. Your monitor is connected to the output of the adaptor, and your glasses plug into the rear of it. Initial setup took me about 3 minutes, and was effortless. The glasses come in two flavors, wireless and wired version, Iíve got the latter one.

Next, itís required to install the software included and stereo drivers for your particular card, which can usually be found on the manufactures website or the included installation disk. If you are using a NVIDIA card, Iíd highly recommend using the latest drivers available to make sure you have the latest updates for glasses usage. When using a card other than NVIDIA, you will need to install the ĎWickedí drivers included on the disk. After completing the installation process, a system reboot is required.

The software installs an applet found in your display panel properties, which can be accessed through the advanced button. Here, you can turn on/off 3D and assign hotkeys that will enable you to define different settings to enhance your 3D experience.


Here are the specifications of the system I used the glasses with:

  • Intel 2.4GHz Pentium 4

  • Epox 4BDA2+ Motherboard

  • Visiontek Geforce 4 Ti4200

  • Philips 109s Monitor

  • Windows XP
