Will update once I get a good feel for them. Likely after the LSU-Alabama game.....
I thought I would be disappointed by cutting cost and settling for the 3050s, but could be interesting to have choices.
Yes, I think you'll like the 3050's... I think by cutting corners in the skinnier, sleeker glasses, they sacrifice quality... Everyone wants these skinny light active glasses, but I think they cut corners. That being said, the 3050's seem the most comfortable all around...and they weigh the same as the 3700's...1 ounce.
I just got a pair of the 3300's as well and they're going back...too heavy, too big and too tight...no wonder they're hard to find. Picture quality, lens quality was the best, but not worth a huge headache while watching TV.
Just got two sets of 3100's with a starter kit, found on eBay. The 3100's look the worst, but they provide an excellent picture quality and feel comfortable, plus block excess light. I'm not sure they're as comfortable on the eyes, where the 3050's really produce no eye strain, but the overall picture quality of the 3100's is probably a bit greater, so worth it. The 3700's produced so much eye strain, it was terrible, blurry images, flashing light, couldn't watch.
So, the 3300 and 3700's are going back...sticking with the 3100's and 3050's for now. Now, I'm hoping something great comes out for 2012...that's compatible with the 2011 TVs and wireless charger...then we're in business. It's too bad the "3D" isn't "perfect" with so much going into hyping it...but it will do for now I guess...
