Hi Clyde, I have the Merlin itheater cordless and that cost me only $320 - true it has a lower resolution than the vuzix 920 but the Merlin has built in memory and does not need an external video player (it decodes divx etc internally) - and the resolution is 480x320 not 320x240

I think after adding freight of approx $30 and 5% duty you will end up paying over $400 for the vuzix without a local warranty

for me the merlin unit is a bargain

Hi Ahmed, Im with you on the Aramex shop n ship. actually my wife already had an account, and now I've started using it. The reason I wish these so-called electronics chains out here would carry non-"fast food"-like electronics is that we could get a hands on feel of such niche products before we commit to buying them. @ wiley, yes i know about the Marlin wraparound displays and their newly introduced 3D version as well, however the price is more than what higher end displays are (www.vuzix.com) and the marlin has a lower resolution display (320x240) per lcd on the wearable display ;-) Regards

Merlin have been doing wearable media screens for ages in Computer Plaza. Ahmed, with you on Aramex and Amazon, etc., people are always wondering how I get my stuff first! :)

Long live online shopping, I subscribed to ARAMEX SHOP & SHIP and buy every single gadget from Amazon, ebay and NEWEGG. Including US Taxes, Shipping from US, and taxes in UAE if applicable, the final product gets between my hands much cheaper than what they sell in here, even game titles! Forget the stupid so called "GIANT" electronic shops in here, they are worthless, non of them actually specialize in selling computer gadgets. Non of them sell a desent graphics card or even a freaking internal hard drive!!! If you want those "unique" things, you have to hit the small "shawarma like" computer shops in Khalid Bin Waleed street, but even tho if you find what you're looking for there, not everyone will have it, and again, the price will probably be enough to by your self a nuclear powered PC!!! Till those stupid electronic giants in here WAKE UP, i'm doing all my electronic shopping online!

This is a great article and comprehensively researched no doubt. to me, 3D or (stereoscopic 3d) is a passion and I'm probably one of the few that have a DepthQ projector here. What i'm getting at is, that I wish the marketing managers of the so called "electronics giants" here see potential and introduce this products. i searched every major electronics store in Dubai for the Nvidia glasses.. nothing.. nada...zilch! They are too busy selling Wii's and xboxes and competeing with the stores next door.. much like shawarma shops. there's not an once of innovation here in marketing. textbook rules. Go to Carre four or Jumbo and you will see the Samsung TVs and a few other brands with the 3D sockets on them.. but the sales people dont even know how to sell these features as "plus points". Thanks to articles like this, maybe there will be some good marketing. Keep up the work ITP! clyde.
