I am sorry if this has already been discussed but after several searches I have seen nothing, Monoprice is now offering 3D glasses for only about $30, I order from them a lot & love all their products so far, but these glasses have no reviews yet & I was wondering if anyone here has used them yet & how they like them?

I actually just got mine last night. I've had my 2010 Samsung UN46C7000 for just over a year and these are the first pair of 3D glasses I've tried. I refused to pay $200+ for something I wasn't entirely sold on, so I waited, only to find out that Sammy switched over to Bluetooth for their 2011 models.

Anyway, my experience thus far has been above average. I know there's some ghosting issues with my TV so the fact that I've seen a bit hasn't been surprising/upsetting/unexpected. The only time I found it distracting was the PS3 Killzone 3 demo and most of the time I didn't see any at all. Other stuff I demoed - mostly movie trailers and game demos - looked great. Wipeout HD in particular. I wear glasses and they felt comfortable enough to wear over the top. Build quality is much better than I was expecting.

$30 well spent. After some more testing I'll probably be picking up 3 more pair.

Also, I experienced no sync issues, and the box they come in makes for a nice padded storage case.

My 3D experience is only 2 hours old so please take that into account. I wish I could compare them with some Samsung models, but like I said, I'm not forking over that much money.

I've got a friend bringing over some Samsung SSG-2200AR glasses this weekend so I'll be able to do a proper side by side.

After playing a bit more, now that the wow factor is less, I am noticing more crosstalk than I would like.

Price is nice, but these are IR glasses. It makes no mention of the IR emitters that support these glasses. Is it any emitters that work with original Samsung glasses or only the 2010 or later models???

I think I'll stick with DLP Link glasses - the Ultra Clears aren't that much more.

On my TV (UN46C7000) I'd say the shutter performance between the Samsung SSG-2200AR and the Monoprice glasses is roughly about the same. With Samsung SSG-2200AR winning when it comes to comfort and picture clarity.

i buy my samsung tv Samsung UN46D6400 from amazon with samsung Samsung SSG-2200AR glasses. But the SSG-2200AR 3D glasses work. They have a solid field of view, have a sturdy feel, don't weigh enough to cause discomfort, and don't rely on potentially pricy batteries that have to be replaced each month.

Any chance these will work with a Panny ST30?

Bringing up a thread from near death...

I was just made aware of these glasses on Monoprice, and I have an ST30. The ones they are selling for Panny's are $42. For that price, you could get the Sony glasses for $30 on sale from Best Buy.

If these drop in price around the holidays, I'll try em out.
