Interesting that shipping is twenty dollars. Add another pair and shipping is forty dollars. Sheeeeesh. Like they can't throw another pair into the box.

Screw that, they're selling them $10 more than the manufacturer, with $20 shipping. I don't think so. I'll be ordering directly through Xpand, even if I have to wait longer.

These have got to be the first siting of the OEM Bit Cauldron glasses, because the only other companies selling DLP-Link glasses are Xpand and RealD. And these are half the price of Xpand, and nearly 1/5 the price of the RealD CE5's.

They aren't AFAIK. I sent an Email to the CEO of Bit Cauldron who responded and said their glasses will be available "the second half of 2010." They just completed their funding about 3 weeks ago. Check my BUYERS GUIDE for 3D glassses. The BC's are there.

I would really like to add those Viewsonic PGD-150 DLP-Link ASGs to my BUYERS GUIDE, but I cannot locate anthing on their website about them:

http://www.viewsonic.com/

This photo popped up on a Norweigan website showing their 1280x800 DLP 3D ready PJ.



EDIT:

Sent an Email to get some additional info on these ASGs. Hope they respond.

I think you would of had to go through some sort of more official group buy method here and I don't think they allow them to span multiple website forums. Not sure though.

If you want a good deal on them then call tru3d . I doubt they have any left for sale. They only had a 200 on order.

Wow as Sammy 61A750 owner, and just waiting for PS3 firmware update in June + the fine new Mitz supplied converter, thanks for this link on Amazon. Sure a lot less expensive.

I guess all the shutter glasses have the thick frames all the way around.... it's the nature of the beast? Some have commented (probably from experiences in theaters....not TV sized displays....) that the frame cuts annoyingly into your peripheral vision. Do you guys think it's not an issue with 50-70" displays, or that maybe bottom frameless types might eventually show up in the "shutter" format? I was all set to order 3 in my Amazon cart but just wanted to ask this first.

Thanks

You want the glasses to block your peripheral. The IO glasses I have don't do a good job of this, and reflected light coming in through the sides is sometimes distracting. And this is about 5.5' from a 61" display.

I tried the Xpand glasses at a local theater, and they did a much better job.

I think I got multiple xpand x102 sources in stock and cheaper...

Looks like Sharp had got a lot of these glasses for his 5 dlp 3dlink projectors, as you can find them as "3D SHUTTER GLASSES FOR USE LAMPW/ SHARP 3D READY PROJECTORS - X102", "Mfg Part# X102", or even " Sharp Electronics XpanD 3D shutter glasses X102"
You can find them easily from us102.24 shipped free (buy.com).

I hope it would be of any help.

Thanks for the info I just ordered our sharp Xpand x102s for $102.24 + free shipping a pair off amazon from buy.com they are saying we should see them between April 12th and April 15th. I am keeping my fingers crossed that these dates don't change. Can't wait to try them out with Mitsubishi WD-60737 , Xbox 360 elite , and The Avatar game. This will be my first 3D experience at home.

I just saw that the Sharp Xpand x102 glasses are available also at http://www.provantage.com/scripts/se...P&IIM=Y&SORT=1

Price is $102.16 and it says they have 20 in stock

I got mine from buy.com for $102.24 this morning around 1 am and they have already gone up a few bucks since i bought them.

This is very good news indeed. I guess I should email Rorey @ Xpand to be taken off the waiting list. I suppose I should order some batteries from them as they are proprietary. Good to go, I might order 3 of them since they are almost $50 cheaper. Thanks for the find guys, good work.

Cheers

Any ideas if these use proprietary batteries as well? The only think putting off my decision to get the x102 is the batteries.

No idea. I can't locate any info on them concerning the battery other than a Lithium which means a "coin" style battery. Could be two instead of the normal one. ViewSonic has no info on their site. Found what I believe is the MSRP = $130.00

Does anyone know if there are any differences between the XpanD X102 and the Viewsonic PGD-150 glasses?

Batteries....viewing quality.....bulkiness....ability to wear prescription glasses, etc.

Thanks

Viewsonic PGD-150 glasses has to be released yet...so the answer is nobody knows.

Proprietary batteries is a pain, even more pain when you have to get them imported like me anyway I will see if there is any way to mod the glasses to accept regular coin batteries, and I'm almost sure the Viewsonic will use regular batteries, being that Viewsonic is a real company...

I really doubt XpanD is using a proprietary battery for their glasses. As you can see, there are a ton of Coin Style Lithium Batteries. just need to know the specs on what Xpand is using.

Their prices for acc.'s are ridiculous.
