I am wondering what peoples experiences have been with 3active 3d glasses. I am more curious how these work with Panasonics 2011 3d tvs. I am awaiting a 65 st30, and these glasses are available and cheaper than Panasonic ones, thanks.

What a coincidence you posted this...my 3Active Glasses arrived today and as I type are charging. However we don't have a 3D movie to actually test not unless we rent one off of AT&T. These were not even on my radar at first. I ended up getting the GT30 55" off Amazon nearly $250 less than the local B.B. Already the wife asked how much was the new set going to set us back and I already penciled in around $1600 -$1700 max. So with the extra money I grabbed a new BR Player (Panasonic BDT210) and looked for glasses...


Like you the Panny glasses are to much and after reading countless reviews I actually settled on the Xpland X103's. Then when the day came I doubled checked around and then settled on the True Depth. Don't ask why but at the last minute of putting the order in I checked one more time and saw these 3Active. However ones for the Panasonic wasn't even out (coming out the next few days). What I did see was really positive reviews from DLP and Samsung owners.

They come in a nice case just like you se on their site...Dimensional Optics. Are re-chargable which I like. Kind of remind me of the old style Wayfarer Glasses. Comes with a nice cloth for cleaning. And of course the price couldn't be better.

I tried the Xpland X103. I didnt like the glasses that much. I would highly recommend checking out the 3rd generation 3d glasses from panasonic. they are rechargable and much lighter (weight).

The panasonics are hard to find and very expensive. The 3actives are 4 for $230, that's why I want to see how they work with Panasonic. They got good reviews with other brands.

I guess I got extremely lucky in finding the deals I did. I ended up getting all 4 of my extra panny glasses(2 1st gen and 2 2nd gen....or maybe all 4 are 2nd gen) for $350. That includes Coraline, Ice Age, and Avatar all in 3d as well.

I found the coralline/ice age/2 3d glasses bundle at sears for $100. As far as I know, I literally got the last bundle in the nation from sears. I got the Avatar bundle at Modia for $250.

I am, however, looking for an extra set, simply because im looking for something light and comfortable.

I have the SainSonic 3D Rechargeable they work pretty good with 3D movies for $52 but 2d-3d is a waste of time.

I did find a 3D rental site http://stores.3d-blurayrental.com/StoreFront.bok there prices are high but the service is great.

I really hope this thread picks up some steam, as I too need to buy some glasses myself. I keep hearing that the PS3 ones work as good as the panasonics for a lot less money. They are heavier and not as comfortable though. I am wondering if there are any that are cheaper than the PS3 ones that still peform well.

I would def recommend the PS3 glasses, they are lighter than the 2nd gen pany glasses and comfortable enough to make it through a movie just fine. Plus they are way cheap compared to the everyone elses. Its odd how Sony can make them this cheap and universally compatible but Panasonic can't...

I know, right. I think that others have a smaller user base though, and Sony figured that into their math. There are probably far more PS3's in use than Panasonic 3D tv's.

I really think the cost of the glasses is a real deterrant for people. I know it is for me. I chose my 55st30 for its overall performance, not the 3D function. Because I am on a budget right now, I cannot afford to buy 4 pairs of glasses due to their cost.

Any comment on the range of these glasses suitable for 2011 Panasonic tvs? I've heard the range is limited and my couch is at least 15 feet from the TV. Thanks.

Anyone have any reviews of Panasonic's 3d glasses for the 2012 50 series TVs? I see they are about $80 at best buy. 30 hour usage time on a 30 min charge, or 3 hours on 2 min charge sounds pretty nice.

I may be late to the convo, but I have and use my 3active glasses on a 2012 samsung plasma, mostly to play xbox in 3d and they are nice, good fit, good viewing good 3d perspective. My only issue with them and it minor is they let a little extra side light in than I would like but you I guess you have to give up something's for comfort. While I know this is true of all 3d glasses the darking bothers me when they are active, I wish there was a way to brighten glasses when active. Other than that nice glasses.

Try the Panasonic 2012 Compatible 3D Glasses thread for all kinds of reviews, photos and comparisons.
