    Bottom Line: If youíre into cool toys that have functionality, give this a try but donít rely on it outside of simple tasks, such as deathmatches.

    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • Works like advertised
    • Makes life a bit easier
    • Comes with many replacement dots

    Cons

    • Lack of precision
    • Wearing something that has silver dots on it
    • Other shiny objects can throw off the camera

    Conclusion

    Iíll give it to you, itís pretty cool to say that all you have to do to use your computer is look at the screen and move your head around a bit but considering everything up to this point, is it worth it? It would be if you could get 100% used to using the TrackIR but itís harder than it seems but the sensitivity and speed options do help. NaturalPoint has done a good job programming the software so that it makes the user have an easier time getting adjusted to the TrackIR. Once properly modified, the TrackIR can be one cool toy but it probably will not be put out for mainstream use or adopted by any OEMís because overally, it will take longer to do things with the TrackIR then it will with a simple mouse. If youíre into cool toys that have functionality, give this a try but donít rely on it outside of simple tasks, such as deathmatches.
