I have seen other glasses and frankly this is the least 3D effect for me. How is everyone else is enjoying their 5100 with 2012 Panasonics.

I have the 4100 for my VT50 and I like them, but I've only used the ER3D4MU for a few hours and didn't do an A/B. I'm assuming that the 5100 are very similar to the 4100. I hope that the 2013 Panny's are nice. Shouldn't we have info on them by now?

I think it makes sense that details about 3D glasses would have been available with the announcement of the mode line, but maybe that makes too much sense? Maybe they are going to let XpanD make the glasses now?

Alright giomania, I'm convinced. I'm going to order a couple of pairs of the x105-BT's through Amazon. Returns will be easier and I have Prime cool.gif

Thank you for the information.. Ordered these for my Panasonic ST50. I verified at Pauls TV that they would work. MQ

The four Xpand X105BT's arrived today as scheduled. Won't be home yet for a few hours to test compatibility, but I did take some photos so you can see the comparison with the Samsung 4100GB.

1. The X105's are larger than the 4100GB. One can literally wear the X105's over the Samsung. Even so, they are still extremely light. But size wise, I think they may be way too large for kids 10 and under.

2. The X105 frame does a much better job at blocking stray light and reflections. The angle of the lenses seem to be identical between the two. The X105 lenses are slightly larger, and is a better shape than the rectangle that is the 4100.

3. The X105's are more comfortable to wear for me. They fit over the bridge of the nose much better. The 4100 nose piece is very shallow in comparison, resulting in some instability. Also, I can get the X105's closer to my face, which helps some more with stray light rejection.

4. The tint of the two look similar. Neither one seemed darker than the other either.

5. The box displays "Full HD 3D RF" logo--exactly the same as on the Samsung box. I have full confidence now that the X105BT will work with both my 55UT50 and 65VT50.

6. The larger on/off button on the ear/side of the X105 is very easy to use compared with the Samsung. It was difficult to avoid touching/smearing the lenses on the Samsung when you use the on/off button that is situated on the top of the lens. That's not an issue with the X105.

7. The large LED on the X105 is on the right side of the glasses and are much easier to see and provides fantastic feedback. The Samsung LED is the small on/off button which can make it a challenge when you also need to "press" it.

8. The sturdy X105 ears fold just past the bulky part that contains the battery/electronics/micro-USB port. Storage is much easier. The 4100 electronics and battery is on the bridge, which results in the shallow nose piece and also awkward on/off switch. The Samsung ears are flimsy and non-foldable.

The photos on Amazon's site for the X105BT are not 100% accurate. Go with the ones on Xpand's site. I would say these are practically identical to the "universal" X105 RF listed on Xpand's site. And at the current closeout price, probably difficult to beat for value unless the Panasonic's go on sale again for $30. I predict there'll be pretty popular soon, and I'm not sure how stock will hold up.

Thanks for the great (and detailed) review. Can't wait to hear how they perform for viewing, but it looks like we have a good alternative.

Agreed, the public thanks seems appropriate here... I ordered two via Prime. We have Avatar in shrink wrap and might Redbox Life of Pi as the inaugural 3-D test movie...

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

You're all more than welcome! Glad to be able to contribute. Will report back later tonight once I get home, get some dinner, and do some 3D watching.

I put the X105BT on the postage scale--it's 1.4 oz. I think we can just ignore the "specs" on Amazon's site since they are often inaccurate or non-specific. 2.4 oz. may be the shipping weight with the box, usb cable and paper manual? The Samsung 4100 are 0.8 oz. on the same scale.

I was just going to post pics, but I see you beat me to it; I received the exact same thing. As you note, the pictures on Amazon's site are wrong. The glasses we received have the "Special adjustable nose piece" and the rechargeable batteries of the $60 X-105-RF-X1, so this is confirmed to be a fantastic deal from Paul's TV!

I can confirm the XpanD X105BT work on my Panasonic TCPVT50; I synced them with no problem, and watched a little 2D-3D converted content. I don't have a 3D Blu-ray player yet.

I had charged all four X105BT's at the office. Got home, paired all of them to the TV with ease--zero problems. Tried several 3D movies off my network as well as Oppo 93. Also tried them at 48Hz and 60Hz. No magical difference in 3D performance compared to the 4100 except for much reduced stray light and better, more comfortable fit. I also found that the X105's, by virtue of their better balance and sturdier ears make the glasses more stable and less likely to move about than the 4100. They are most definitely a better fit over regular eye-glasses than the Samsung as well.

I ordered another 4 pairs. For about $10 more than the Samsung, and half the price of the Panasonic currently, the Xpand X105BT is very clearly a bargain with it's rechargeable battery and great ergonomics. I can heartily recommend them.

I purchased the xpand youniversals in size medium off amazon for my 6 and 10 year old. They come in a small,medium and large. They work ir and rf (with separate dongle). they were 22.00 on amazon! Then you need to go to xpands site and purchase the rf dongle to make them work rf for 39.00. 62.00 for the set isn't bad since they will then work ir and rf. they run 139.00 for the bundle on xpand site alone. Less than 1/2 price if you get the glasses off amazon!

Actually, in no way do I see the Samsung 4100 working better than the Xpand X105 on a smaller adult face. Because the 4100 is open all around the lenses, you get a lot of stray light coming in from everywhere. And if your head is smaller, there will even be more space between your head and the lenses resulting in more back-reflection, etc. The X105 on the other hand can be worn closer to your head/eyes because of the larger bridge; the larger frame and thicker ears is much better at blocking stray light.

With the 4100's, the lenses extended to the side far enough that any light whatsoever behind me would have a strong reflection. And if you wear glasses, the problem is compounded with multiple reflections. With the X105, this effect is reduced tremendously.

Ideally, 3D glasses that work like goggles would block the most light. Something like this that basically has a foam surrounding the lenses:


The problem is that would require curved lenses. Unfortunately, that isn't going to be possible till flexible LCD becomes more prevalent and affordable. smile.gif

The pair I ordered arrived today. They didn't work with my GT50. frown.gif

Are they defective or do they only work on the VT50?

Edit: Never-mind, just another case of technology hating me. rolleyes.gif

Finally got them to sync with the TV after another several tries.

Thanks for the info guys.

I decided to go with the Samsung 5100. I got a set for $17 on amazon. I have no idea what I will think about 3d, it certainly is not much at the moment, so this should allow me to figure out if I will enjoy this technology. If I do, I am sure I will then start looking for performance etc...


I had a really hard time getting eye glasses, I had to shop unisex/women/kids, but kids were usually too small. I would find a pair of mens glasses that would work, but theye were always $600+... Extremely annoying.

I have the 4100's and the performance seemed identical, the Xpand's have a much nicer fit though. I was disappointed that the Xpand's didn't seem to block light any better on the bottom of the glasses, but the side protection was indeed better.

Ditto here. It took a bit of futzing to get them paired, but they work fine as far as I can tell (only have 2D->3D content to try them with at this point). Once you get the 6-blink LED confirmation of association, they seem to synch up more easily when powered on while 3D content is already being displayed. Plus, in that instance, you'll get a momentary pop-up on the lower right of the screen showing the glasses and a battery level indicator.

Someone asked this question earlier and for what ever the reason, the post was not discussed so I am bringing it up...

http://www.dimensionaloptics.com/Search.aspx?l=00010001000100090000

Anyone using these...?
They seem like a great option...
If so, what TV are you using...?

The overwhelming consensus seems to be the XPAND X105-IR-X1 Rechargeable 3D Infrared Multibrand Glasses.

How long do these glasses last after a full charge?
How long do they take to charge?

Careful, there are two Xpand glasses on Amazon's website. The model you mentioned is nearly $70. I believe that the earlier reviews in this thread and the general focus of the discussion is the less expensive $30 pair, here: http://www.amazon.com/Xpand-X105BT-Mitsubishi-Bluetooth-Televisions/dp/B00A279MD2

I'm thinking of grabbing a few pairs for my 55VT50 this week.

And you don't want the IR-X1. You want the RF-x1. If you get the wrong ones, they won't work since the IR ones won't work with the 2012 sets. They are right next to one another on xpand's site.ake sure you pick the correct ones. Specs state 100 hours on a full charge. I usually figure to cut that by 20 percent.

Just a heads-up: someone just posted the deal (with one of my photos) of the Xpand 105BT on Slickdeals.net. Not sure how many Paul's TV has or whether Amazon will get replacement stock. But if you were thinking of getting these at the bargain price, I would do it sooner rather than later since the price is most likely a result of Mitsubishi getting out of the TV business.

As for pairing the X105BT with my VT50 or UT50, the process is simple with this procedure:
1. Fully charge the battery when you get the glasses. Any USB charger should work. My guess is charge times vary depending on the charger's output.
2. Turn on TV and activate 3D mode.
3. Turn on X105 with a short press of the power button.
4. Make sure you are within 3 feet of the TV.
5. Press and hold the X105 power button for about 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks slowly instead of fading in/out.
6. Release the X105 power button when the LED is blinking.
7. The glasses should sync within a second or two, and the LED will blink quickly 6 times.
8. The battery level indicator on the TV may or may not come on the first time you pair. But if you turn the now paired glasses off, then turn it back on, you will see that the TV should now accurately display the battery level.

According to the manual, a fully charged pair should last over 100 hours of use.

Thank you all for the heads up on the Xpands. I picked up three, and a set of the 3active ones as well. I really appreciate all of your insight.

Ordered a pair of the Xpands...I'm sure I'll be kicking myself on Wednesday when they arrive, I inevitably love them, and then go to buy more only to find out that Paul's is out of stock and the price won't be coming back down...but I don't NEED more than one more set right now, so I guess I'll live? If you need several pairs, I agree with Rocket Rice about getting them fast now that the deal is up on SD.

Paul's TV either ran out of X105BT's or they took them off Amazon. Still showing as in stock on Paul's TV site for $29.99. Last chance to get them I think. My other 4 (total 8) that I ordered on Friday came in today. Charging took about an hour. They are supposed to last over 100 hours of viewing between charges. That's amazing!

Edit: I see that they are still listed at Amazon, but it is now NOT part of Prime. Still free shipping, just not 2-day Prime shipping. Here's the new link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A279MD2/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3ACU7TJEUXKOF
