EDIT: Now under $40.00 (7/2012)
Edit: Now under $50.00! (04/17/11)

These have been available for pre-order for awhile now, but I was waiting to see the reviews on their IR glasses before posting. The IR glasses seem to be getting favorable reviews.

EDIT: preorder period now over

If you get these, please post your thoughts. It would be interesting to see how they compare with other brands, such as Optoma, Viewsonic, and XpanD.

They only work good with checker board 3D TVs.
If you use it with DLP-Link projectors you are going to see lots of pseudo-stereo.

Thanks for the link to these. I think I will try them out. People had nice things to say about their ir glasses. I would like to get Real D CrystalEyes 5 for myself and something like these for guests. Right now I'm using Mits kit ir glasses.

Anyone have any info on:
1.) What kind of batteries this model takes?
2.) How they are activated (button or "tap on" like XpanD)?

Thanks!

Nice to see a company put out a competitive product at a competitive price. I might pick these up down the road as extra sets for company. Just noticed they offer quantity pricing as well, if you buy two the second set is $10 less. I like them already.

Thanks for the post Auger. I'm very happy with their IR glasses and also the speedy shipping of them! Hopefully, these will perform as well.

My first question is, can the left and right fields be reversed (like the Viewsonics) so that they can be used in conjunction with IR glasses?

No.
You can only flip that using projector's or TV's menu.

Not true. The ViewSonic glasses allow you to reverse L/R phases on the glasses themselves.

From the specs on those links it looks like those glasses:
1.) Have auto on/off (I'm assuming the same "tap on" technology as XpanDs)
2.) Replaceable standard battery (seems to ride in a snap-in caddy)

Bummer about not being able to switc mode like the Viewsonics. Still, if they don't have the rainbows/color banding, these would be nice to have. Someone posted a device that switces the L/R for $60 that would allow these to be used alongside the Mits glasses.

OK, I googled pseudo-stereo (outside of AVS search) and the only thing on there is icester's comments on AVSforum. So please explain, thank you.

Pseudo-stereo is when you see the reversed depth of original scene. So if Mike was in front of John in original scene
he will be behind John but still fully visible when in pseudo-stereo.

If you see a ball then in pseudo stereo you will see ball which look as if it was cut on half. Another wards the normally convex shape ball will now look concave open shell.

So, in reversed depth or pseudo stereo both Mike's and John's bodies will be concave, open shell looking like.

Do you understand?

They have the exact same glasses but aren't DLP Link. Would it be better to just get those and a IR emitter?

In your case both type of glasses will work.
At such low price I would try both.

The matching IR emitter is over $100 at Tru3D.com, and currently unavailable at Mits parts. If you're trying to save money, get the DLP-Link glasses.

Thanks to both you and icester. So the L/R switch on the projector, remote, glasses takes care of that? No problem then.

This was posted by someone else in another thread a while back, but you can address this problem by using an in-line inverter in the path from the TV (or 3D adapter) to the emitter. So, you set the TV to reverse which allows the DLP glasses to work, and the inverter allows the IR glasses to also sync properly.

I'll be using this technique so that my kids can continue to use their Samsung kids glasses while I use my CE5s that should be here any day now.
