    have it

    not worth it if you have to pay 200 bucks for it IMO

    you are close enough in the LL to just enjoy watching the game live. When they are down the other end, you have the Jumbotrons.

    The two things I enjoyed most about it were the ability to watch two or three other games and keep up to date with them, the ability to watch the TV feed during replays and the red zone channel

    the second reason is gone this year because they will be showing those views on the Jumbotron and the first and third reasons aren't enough to justify spending any sort of significant bucks on it.

    Want to buy mine?

    I love mine. Main reason is the ability to watch instant replays from multiple camera angles. If you are into Fantasy Football, the ability to put your players in and keep track is cool.

    worth every penny, has the nfl redzone channel, also great for replays, and also has some of the other televised games on it. also great if you are big into fantasy football

    Isn't it the last year for STH who got it with a 3yr subscription for their purchase of CLUB seats or those who bought it off them on ebay for $60?

    Is their a renewal contract or something? HOw does it work after this season onward in terms of service?

    Sar, how much? Does it have this season still on it or would I have to subscribe? I could even meet you at your seats, I almost took seats in row 9 in your section (231a?)

    Avoid Fanvision at all costs.

    The thing weighs 200 pounds and hangs around your neck making you look like a misinformed geek. Not to mention that you've likely got a smartphone, and in a few years all these features will be made available in a paid app, sure beats dragging the thing around everywhere.

    Fanvision was developed at a time that all content providers were listening to Wall Street and running around trying to make their own devices. Remember the Nuviphone? Same thing here. Fanvision is destined to be a paid app for a smartphone. Wait for that if you need it at all. No need to wear the weight equivalent of 6 iPhones around your neck.

    I bought mine on eBay for like $50 a couple years back and have used it maybe a handful of times. Watching a replay and checking game stats in between quarters is something you should conceivably be able to do on any smartphone but the coverage during game is terrible.

    I got my pair of Fanvision units two years ago with the purchase of my club seats. It's a neat gimmick, but I'd be PO'd if I paid $200 for each of them. They are not light. They are too big to stuff in your pocket, and the strap they give you seems flimsy, I am always afraid it is going to break.

    Having the replays is nice, and it does have the audio from the radio.....but with a 7 second delay.

    I take mine to about half the game. I use them about half the time I bring them, and the other half I let the people around me use them.

    I'm with SAR, eventually they will have an iPad or Droid app that we can use on our phones.

    Burping, farting, sh-tting pigeon-attracting Jets trash. They must have gotten those lower level seats from a Salvation Army raffle.
