"Look..look with your special eyes."
Seriously though, I love the flavor of these new cybernetic implants. What's more awesome than cutting out bits of your weak human flesh to splice in shiny chrome parts? It's a huge element of cyberpunk that we haven't yet seen (well, maybe Spinal Modem a bit).
But about the card itself. The immediate point of comparison is The Personal Touch. They're both 2 influence Shaper cards that give you a +1 strength on an icebreaker. Their basic use is relatively similar; you use them to boost the strength of a fixed-strength breaker like Yog.0, or you use them to make the cost of certain expensive-to-boost breakers like Pipeline or Inti less prohibitive. If nothing else, they saves you a credit on your Corroder per barrier broken, which can add up quickly.
Now, what's different? The cost to install is the first part. TPT costs 2 to install, which is typically not a big deal and well worth it if you can then Yog a Lotus Field. On the other hand, Net-Ready Eyes costs no credits...but hits you with 2 meat damage. Ouch. Make no mistake, this is clearly worse. You are losing two cards (and therefore the clicks you likely used to draw them), and since meat damage in random it's up to fate whether you lose something useless or something useful. On top of that, Net-Ready Eyes is unique, which increases dead draws if you put in more than one.
So why would anyone play this? First, your investment is much less likely to go to waste. With TPT, one unlucky hit on a program-trashing ICE might cost you your breaker and the hardware along with it; with NRE, you just shrug and boost a different breaker instead. Second, you can install NRE and your breakers in either order. Lastly, there is a neat synergy with I've Had Worse from Order and Chaos; most net/meat damage occurs when the corp says it does, but this happens at the runner's leisure, so you can hit the shop when the outcome is the best for you.
Overall, I don't think this is going to redefine the game, but if a deck is already running strength-boosters like TPT or Dinosaurus it's worth testing this card in place or in addition to a few of them.
