Try 3DProStore.com, they always have cheaper prices and great customer service from Dann.

Ultra Clear has had the same* rechargeable glasses in blue for under $50 since April http://www.ultimate3dheaven.com/ul3dgl.html and they have kids sizes as well.

*EDIT: The Ultra Clear rechargeables are not DLP-Link, they are IR. They still have DLP-Link for under $50, but they are not rechargeable. Thanks WACO, for the correction.

Yes, but aren't those IR and not DLP Link? Maybe I'm wrong

Yes, sorry. I don't know how I missed that the topic was DLP-Link.

WACO, thanks for the information in this thread. I ordered 2 pairs (got them at the $59 price on Monday) and tried them out on Polar Express yesterday. The difference between these glasses and the Mits ones on the 73C9 was incredible. The only complain I have is the reflection, but hopefully that'll go away when I'm watching in total darkness. If not I'll have to stick some masking tape or something else inside the glasses. The image looked nice and crisp, not washed out as with the Mits (as I knew it would, thanks to not being able to turn off DLP Link in my tv).

I have a pair of Optoma ZD201's on the way, but I'm still curious about how these compare to the zd201s.

Waco, I think I read somewhere that the True Depth glasses fit better than the zd201's (on your sister?), is that correct?

thanks!

Well I mentioned that the Optoma ZD101's were to wide to even fit behind her ears (she has a small head), but the True Depth 3D's fit her perfectly. They definitely have the most snug fit out of any glasses I've tried, but with the rubber arms, they feel comfortable and don't cause pain. I have a very big head in contrast and they fit me perfect. The ZD201's do not have as snug a fit as the True Depth's, but I find them extremely comfortable. They both have rubber nose pieces and arms, so the only difference in comfort is that the Optoma ZD201's aren't as snug on the sides of your head. Visually they look about equal, but yes the True Depth's have more glare, but it's not to the point where it really bothers me too much. It doesn't interfere with the actual picture for me, it's more of to the sides.

The glare/reflection on the True Depth's made them unusable for me (I had and returned 4-pairs). When watching my Mits 65838, they would give me a headache. Waco has a pair of ZD201s that he says has no glare. I have a pair on order to see. Here is to hoping that they work out for me.

Waco - I thought you perferred the ZD201s now? Decided to switch back now that I have ordered a pair? ;-)

Nice man, glad they worked out for you. Ya, I was so excited to try out my IR XPands when I first got them and then so dissapointed when I saw how washed out the image was (DLP LINK thing). Took me hours of researching to find out the problem and what type of glasses I need. Thankfully there are boards like this, because the manufacturers sure as hell don't make things any simpler for us. As for the glare, they do have more glare than the others, but nothing out of the ordinary in my opinion. I watch 3D movies in the dark anyways. Just try and avoid light coming from the back, that's where the glare comes in, not the front

Is the glare coming in from behind the viewer reflected by the lens or the frame? If the frame, could you correct it by some means such as paint or tape??

Yes, the lens. The inside of the frame is not glossy, it's a flat black texture, not glossy like the outside

so if you have light coming from behind you, I have windows and a sliding door behind me, these won't work for me? obviously I have blinds, but still there is light coming through, I mostly watch at night so wouldn't be the biggest deal. has anyone confirmed if the 3dtv ones are the same?

BTW, every place i look says these are unavailable now.

If you watch at night, I wouldn't worry about it. I can't confirm the 3DTV ones are the same, but I'm almost sure they are. That's what companies do, they buy a good product and stamp their label on it. A lot of companies don't actually manufacture their products

New and cheap to 3D. C9 , ps3 and Mitsu adapter is my base. Red xpands for $30, Blues xpands for $45 both used and dlp-links. Second option is Ultra-clears $50 or TruDepth $70. The Trues are the only rechargeable, but borderline of budget. Xpand need special batteries. I only want dlp-links. Help.

Does anyone have firsthand knowledge of the 3D of Vip Dlp-link glasses. They remind me of the Ultra-Clears. Does Vip offer rechargeable glasses? These will be used mainly for daily gaming.

I have them and they work well. I don't have anything to compare them to, though. I have an Optoma HD3300 projector and with these glasses I see absolutely no ghosting and I can go grab a beer, tilt my head every which way and not lose sync. When I turn the lights on, they do tend to flicker, but I think that's going to happen with any DLP link glasses. At any rate, I ended up buying six of them if that's any indication of how much I liked them. Buy a pair and see how you like them. They're really affordable, and if you do like them you can pride yourself in the fact that you saved a fair chunk of change relative to other glasses.

Personally, I won't go for rechargeable. Just get a handful of batteries from the dollar store in case a pair dies and you're good to go. I'd hate to be in the middle of a movie and have one of my buddies' glasses die and have him not be able to watch because the glasses need to be recharged. Plus, there are a finite number of recharges, whereas I can always buy a new battery. Mind you, by the time current rechargeable glasses die my pj will probably be tossed in favour of passive Dolby 3D, but meh.

I'm leaning towards one pair of Ultra-Clears for myself and Xpands 102 for guest. What are the differences between the red and blue Xpands?

Should Optoma zd-101 be on my list. I've only heard they are big. My hat size is 7 3/4, so big is not bad. 1000:1 contrast which seems normal.

The blue ones are supposed to have an extended range.

I don't like that the X102's don't have foldable arms. They take up a lot of room to store them.

Have you checked out the Optoma ZD201's? Two people in this forum think they are the best DLP-LINK glasses going...

Anyone who is wondering what DLP-Link glasses to get, trust the people on here who have gone through this same ordeal. There are only 2 good options. The Optoma ZD201's (the best), and the Rechargeable True Depth 3D's (very close 2nd). Anything else is a waste of time and money. If these glasses are not available right right now, I suggest you wait a week or two for them to show up again.

How does the xpand x103 or x104 compare to dlp-link glasses. I'm pulling the trigger this weekend on some glasses. I tried to order the Ultra-clear dlps and could not get the order to go through.
