Looking for comments. Looks good but has anyone used these or seen them prior?

bright light. My old 920's acted similarly just before they quit working. I'd be willing to spend more for something that would hold up better under
the somewhat harsh conditions my goggles get subjected to.

They are good but have those defects manufacturers are trying to solve before releasing TVs and screens where one would expect very high quality. Notably, there is a sort of static noise on the panels. Imagine grain on a photo taken in low light, the screens show similar noise but always the same pattern, regardless of the displayed image, because all dots don't have the exact same brightness. The second maybe bigger problem is burn-in. The Z800 are made to be used on a PC. But if you leave them on for only 5 minutes showing your desktop background, and open a bhite page, you'll still clearly see the background as if it was set at maybe 30% opacity. It seems to be more or less reversible (They still mention clearly in the manual not to leave a fixed pattern, and the goggles turn off autoimatically after 5 mins without moving them), but can be very annoying at times.
I had posted a pretty detailed report about my impressions when I got them, must be around here.
The screens/electonics used in your goggles must be of poor quality, I have used several goggles and none have shown any degradation over time. The ones I use myself are 10 years old

There are plenty of tales of woe out there.
Burned screens, broken temples, bad connectors,
bad modules etc.
Or maybe I just fly too close to the sun!
