This paper presents an evaluation of a 3D semi-immersive virtual reality (VR) system for online luxury product visualization and customization service. This paper's objective is to present the results of the survey-based analysis using a technology acceptance model with ease of use, usefulness, perceived experience value, and perceived presence as independent variables, in testing the attitudes toward the system. The impact of product customization and personalization features on the perceived experience value and the attitudes toward the system was also tested. The result shows that the perceived presence, usefulness, ease of use, and the perceived experience value have a significant positive effect on the attitudes toward the 3D VR semi-immersive system. The result also revealed that utilizing the advantage of 3D VR systems with regard to real-time manipulation of the product and the flexibility in customizing the 3D models' features in real time has elevated the attitudes toward the aforementioned emerging technology within this specific context.
