That's all I meant.

We tested using both Vista 64 and 32 bit throughout.

Ive already got a set of the eDimensional 3D glasses which ive had for a few years now, which work in exactly the same way as these nvidia set, however the glasses refresh rate is linked to that of the VGA signal, so have to install a dongle between the gfx card a monitor.
So again I assume the refresh signal is supplied via USB for the nvidia set.
One of the main issues with the eDimensional set is that it lacked drivers, specially for vista.
Ive a 42" plasma screen which supports 120hz refresh, and can confirm that they do indeed work very well,

I happen to have one, and among other games, played Team Fortress 2 on it and because of the iz3d drivers I had no issues with the user interface that you reported.
