Will be glad to...I expect the glasses Tuesday...but,I must tell you that the
TY-EW3D2MA that came with my Panny work just great from a 12' distance.

Got the glasses today...a lot lighter..a lot brighter...it shuts out ambient light
coming in from the side....IMO,a lot more comfortable..I checked them out from a distance of about 25' with no problem...on/off switch is on top of glasss(over the nose guard)this provides easier access to 3d/2d
Panny seems to have hit a grand slam with these!

Yea the new Panny glasses are sweet. I need to find a place that has them online so I can get them cheaper. I watched a replay of Auburn vs South Carolina from last year on ESPN 3D last night and it was pretty cool. It can't touch a blu-ray but it was still a cool effect on the close up camera angles.
On the ST30 thread someone said the used a pencil box as a case since the new glasses dont come with one. I found a pencil box at office depot that I liked so I'm using that. Here are some pics.

Picked the 2-pack today along with the new Avatar kit. These glasses are miles ahead of the previous generation ones. They feel incredibly light, I saw Tron last night and there was a point in time when I forgot I was actually wearing glasses.

For reference I was using the Large pair of 2nd Gen Panasonic glasses for a while now and even then they felt semi-tight on my head, while the new 3rd Gen glasses didn't feel tight at all and they were a MEDIUM. Big thumbs up to Panasonic on these.

Do you happen to know if these 3rd gen glasses are compatible with 2010 model plasmas...specifically the VT25 models? I am getting info from Panasonic that they will be available mid to end of Sept but are only compatible with 2011 models. I thought I had read somewhere months ago they were backward compatible...now I'm confused. I have them on backorder with JR.com

Yes, they are compatible. I called Panasonic today just to be sure.

I called also, so I'm glad that it just wasn't one rep who may have given me misinformation.
The info I received over the phone was different from what I read on their website. I ordered a pair through Panasonic and they should be arriving on Mon. 9/19. I should have waited awhile when the price will probably be lower,but I figured I would get a second pair when I find lower prices.

I am looking at these glasses. So far I see the singles for $79.99 and a twin pack for $199. That seems to make no sense to me??

I just got a 65VT30 and OPPO BDP-93 for 3D use. Does anyone know of a solution for charging four pairs of 3D glasses at one time? I have the TY-EW3D10U glasses.

You can use any USB to charge them. I plug two in my pc then one in my iPhone adapter

Love sports, movies, and games. Slowly some day I'll add a projector and screen. Until then, I'll build up my library.

Thanks. I guess I'll buy a four port USB hub and connect it to the TV and charge them all at once.

Are the -MC versions of these the real deal? They can be had for about $20 less than the -MU's.

Thanks.

I have tried many different brands/kinds of 3D glasses and comfort/weight-wise these kill everything out there for active shutter.

The part numbers are TY-EW3D3LU, TY-EW3D3MU, and TY-EW3D3SU. Many HHGreggs have the TY-EW3D3MUs in stock.

Since the TY-EW3D3SU are back ordered everywhere, anyone found these actually in stock without paying $140 from Japan on Ebay?

I just picked up a pair of the TY-EW3D3MU at the local Best Buy in Madison Heights, MI. I don't think there is a listing for them on the website.

I found these same small size glasses in stock @ Visual Apex for a good price.

I tried these at CES on Several Panasonic TVs. They worked very well and are universal glasses that can be upgraded with firmware downloads.

These 3rd gen pannys are a category killer for active shutter. I even changed my projector just to get M-3DI compatibility with these. They have a easily accessible sliding on/off switch, fast rechargable lithium ion battery, sync smoothly, have good image quality, and are the least 'Alien-face-hugger-get-it-off-me-this-is-why-people-hate-3d' glasses I've ever owned/tried (about 10 different brands.)

I've gotta be honest. I don't like them. The construction feels a lot cheaper than the v2 glasses and they don't even come with a storage case. I guess that explains why the v2 eyewear is currently priced higher than the v3.

Can the panasonic glasses be programmed for the JVC projector? Any generic version of the 3rd generation glasses yet?

Thanks.

Anyone have an idea? The packaging is almost identical to the 'real' ones, just a little Chinese on the box. The 'real' ones sell quickly on eBay and these just sit there.

FYI, I've found that the medium panny 3rd gens still weigh abit on the face after an hour or so whereas the small (which fit me fine and are still a little bit too big for my wife) seem to be able to go on and on without discomfort.

Oh, and the smalls are still in stock for less than Fleabay @ VA (not the Veterans Administration - see page top.)

I placed an order with VA earlier today as well since they show them in stock. 3 hours later I had a FedEx tracking # Paying $30/pair more than CDW, but I didnt want to wait foreverer to get them in. My HR24 receiver will be here this weekend which will give me the DirecTV 3D channels, and I also have some 3D blu-rays ready to go, including avatar. Will look great on my new 60" GT30

I finally got 2 pairs of the 3rd gen medium glasses. Stopped by best buy and the had one pair in stock for full MSRP... While I was in the store I hopped onto amazons website and found 2 single pairs from the price pros for a steal! I think I got the last two though, sorry! I left the one at best buy behind.
