Just wait a week or so as I heard from my BB guy that the new 2013 Panny's glasses should be available by week 2 or 3 of this month. He wasn't able to give me a price yet.

On Saturday I ordered a few pairs of X105BT glasses from Paul's TV through Amazon for $29.00. The order arrived in 2 days - however I immediately noticed the boxes said Infrared and not Bluetooth! I checked the end of the box and it was re-labeled as X105BT - but inside the glasses were X105-IR-M1! mad.gif

Happy to report that after speaking to Amazon and receiving an immediate refund - the service rep suggested to re-order the glasses.
Within 2 days I received the correct X105BT's and am very happy with the quality & performance! smile.gif

Now May 21st, the new 2013 plasma are shipping, still can't find the "Panasonic TY-ER3D5MA", the NEW 2013 3D glasses anywhere. I'm sure I'm not the only one that finds it odd, hard to find the 2012 "rechargeable" ones, and I'm more interested in the new ones, I like the replaceable battery idea, just like the cheap Samsung's I bought, but I wanted to give Panasonic my money to try their own model, even though I know they cost more, two pairs will suffice. Just find it hard to believe they push 3D, and the sets, but make it so hard to buy some extra glasses, bad business indeed!

Doing my online search, I'm finding and reading comments just like mine from early 2012, so it's not a "new" problem, WHAT GIVES PANASONIC? duh........

Ordered them from Paul's via Amazon on Monday, looks like the incorrect item it being put back in inventory after being returned because I received the incorrect IR version today.

So what's the latest news?

I bought a 2012 GT50 early this year and finaly got to the point where I want to test the 3D part of it. I have two kids, so in the end I'll need 4 pairs, will try them two at a time though.

I'm trying to keep the budget in the $50/set area.

Any help here would be appreciated as I do not see the new 2013 glasses out yet and I'm hesitent to try the BT version, since I'm about 12 feet away from the TV and that could be the breaking point for a BT product in my other experiences, unless it's a none issue.

I sit about 11 feet away from my VT50, and the glasses have no problems syncing from the seating location.

Outside of them being flimsy, do the Samsungs (which model#?) perform the same?

My consern is getting a headache from watcing a full movie, does one pair have a better technology vs the other in this department?

Some complain that they are uncomfortable haven't found that to be the case, they dont have the solid sides so light might be an issue again something I haven't found to be an issue.

I believe the model number is SSG5100

I have the X105BT and the Samsung 5100. The Samsung's are more comfortable to wear for me and perform the same imo.

Thanks for the feedback!

So last night I was ready to order the Panny 4 pack for $190 from Amazon, until the wifey saw it and gave me crap about not "needing" them, especially after all the other AV we just bought within the last few months (all in my sig), so I'm back to square one, so for the $19/set with free shipping, I'll start with 2 sets and go from there! biggrin.gif

Actually thats a wise choice imo, small initial investment. If you find you are watching quite a bit of 3d you can always get a more sturdy pair. For my casual infrequent 3d viewing I find the Samsungs more than sufficient. Enjoy smile.gif

Hate it when the wife comes between a mans toys and money.

There is a option you may be overlooking, get one pair of both Panny and the $19 set of 3D glasses. That way you can compare for yourself, if you don't like the $19 pair let the wife use those. cool.gif

Don't forget some of the reply's you are getting are simply a uninformed opinion, folks that don't have both pairs to compare.

This year (2013) I really can't complain, my x-mas toy hunting season started early this year, blew way too much cash already on various toys for different hobbies of mine, at this point I had a ear to ear smile, so when she actually wants to split hairs now, on a $20 vs a $50 item, she can have that one.................for time being! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

But yeah I'm going with the $20 set of two, see if the kids get into it and if they do, then I'll sneak in the $50 Panny set for my self! tongue.gif

No problem. The Samsung 5100's and Xpand 105BT's both work fine with my GT50. The Samsung's sync a little easier and are super fast at syncing, even if you switch back and fourth between 2d and 3d content. If you can, order the "Imax: Under The Sea" 3D blu-ray. It has very nice 3D footage with really good 3D pop out. It's one of the best films out there showcasing what 3D can do imo. Your family will love it ...even the wife.

Just an update, I received 2 sets of the Samsung 5100's ($20/set) and tried them out, the pairing was simple, all 5 seconds and they work great my Panny!

First I was conserned that they use a cr2025 lithium battery in them and was second thinking my choice , since I'm sure the batteries will need to be replaced often, vs a set that can be recharged but then I looked on fleabay and saw that one can pick up a 50 pack of 2025's for like $10 or less, so now I don't feel as conserned!

As for the actual glasses, they are nice and light weight, so there is no discomfort. The on/off on them is quick and simple, the video quality thru them is fine. My ONLY comment is that since they are open on the sides, if I watch something with the lights in the room on, I do get some light from the sides coming in, which is a little annoying but you get used to it and if you are watching something while it's dim to dark in the room, then there is no issue.

Glad they are working out for you, I also find them to be pretty comfortable. Have used mine for occasional viewing and find them to be more than adequate.

Yup, thanks for the recommendation on them!

Funny thing is when I shopped around for the TV, I said to myself, who needs this 3D crap anyways, 3 months later I'm watching a baseball game with the 3D glasses on like a kid in an ice cream store, with a smile ear to ear! biggrin.gif

Cool glad you are enjoying the 3d experience, I find it distracting for sports but for the right movie it is awesome

Smart move, I bought one soon after getting my VT50, since Panasonic for whatever reason is making it really HARD to get their branded glasses. I finally found the Pany brand "rechargeable" 2012 model at a local BB for $80.00, and I can tell you they are NOT 4x better in any regard other then a thicker side of plastic that blocks some side light. You can easily make some thin foam plastic velcro siders to block as much light as you want, and save lots of money to boot. I simply wanted to see what the "official" pany glasses were like, and I could NOT find anything regarding their 2013 glasses when I was looking. They went back to the button battery, which I actually prefer to an internal rechargeable that most likely will not be "replaceable" down the road. I still don't understand how Pany markets all the TV's, and can't understand the need to fuel the 3D experience with easy to find and purchase at a reasonable cost the dam glasses one needs to get into 3D in the first place. They seem to be helping the formats downfall. DUH!.............

So I guess the moral of this story is that we all get sucked into it, in the hands of a good sales person!biggrin.gif

I'm glad you brought this up, as I will most likely need another two pairs and judging these, I might just get another set at $20 each, instead of the Panny's for $50 each.

There is a tint difference in the Samsungs but is probably not really noticeable in content, my calibrator was able to dial things in thru the Samsungs, the Panasonics are more sturdy but I question if there is really any performance difference outside the color difference. And I agree Panny with the poster above at least Panasonic got on board and included glasses for the 2013 models.

I have found this Samsung glasses, and I wonder if they are compatible with my Panasonic 50UT50:
Code:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-SAMSUNG-SSG-5100GB-Active-3D-glasses-Follow-up-model-of-SSG-4100GB-/370855620861?pt=US_3D_TV_Glasses_Accessories&hash=item5658b7b0fd

The original ones were TY-ER3D4MA, which are quite expensive, so I wonder what other types to get.

Also read about some UK made glasses, which seem to be more comfortable, particularly on the nose and if you wear recipe glasses as I do. Has anyone tried any other but Panas or Samys?

Not sure of your "year" or model, but I bought the ones below for my 2012 VT50, they work fine, I'd rather deal with Amazon then Ebay. If you HDTV uses "active" type, then these are the cheapest. Later on I bought the Pany model you referred to, 4X the cost, and not really any better, the Pany's block some light from the sides, but only because of the thicker sides of the glasses, you could make some foam siders that would do the same and save money.

Even if I bought my Pana about two months ago, I guess it's a 2012 model, not '13. The glasses I mentioned that came with it seem to be the latest type, with CR2025 batteries.

About where to buy my stuff, in live in Brazil and Amazon either does not ship here some articles or charges you a lot for shipping. Buying from eBay has proven cheaper and with very little counterfeit risks, if you know what to buy.

About the Samy glasses, the 5100 seem to supersede the 4100, isn't that so? Are they worst?

Now about that X105BT Xpand type glasses mentioned on last page, are they better? Because they are really expensive.
