Sony 3D viewer first look


This device lets you watch and play in 3D in relative privacy.

Fabulous purchase!


This was very easy to connect. Set-up was a breeze till I got to Netflix. That was complicated until I called QVC and got the number for Sony customer service. The rep was great and helped me get Netflix and HuluPlus connected and went over my setup...
