Just a quick note to let anyone that is interested in a Universal brand active shutter 3D glasses, that the Blick 3D glasses work for me.
I own a Panny 50ST30 and just got my Blick 3Ds yesterday and tried them for a few hours last night. I am not going to try to give a comprehensive, jargon filled review, just going to keep it simple...They work.
I charged them for about 30 mins before the red charge light went off indicating a complete charge. removed the clear plastic protective coverings, switched on power button on left side and saw the lens darken as they powered on. I tuned to the 3D channels offered by Comcast (790&791) and sat there watching Kings of Leon in Concert and some dinosaur shows after. The depth effect of the crowd shots really leads your eyes to the stage, very immersive. The guitars seemed to want to poke my eyes out! Watched ESPN 3D and again, 3D effect was very good to my eyes. I also watched a few mins of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on 3D Blu-Ray, and loved what I saw.
Distance: I watched from distances ranging from 10 to 20 feet away and no noticeable effect/ degradation of the 3D quality of the image.
When I got near to an overhead light bulb, the glasses seemed to switch off, as expected,then quickly reverted to operational mode once away from the light source.
Comfort: Very comfortable with large viewing lens area. Worn over regular glasses without distortion by both myself and wife. No humming, buzzing or other noise from the glasses, that I could hear, I'll check again when worn again.
Since I've only just got them and not in use for any considerable length of time, I can't speak to battery life etc. That is left to be determined. I've touched on a few aspects that I think people would be interested in knowing, but if I've neglected to mention something anybody would like for me to check for I will, if I can. I am no expert on this stuff so go easy! They work for me so far...
All I want for Christmas is my two front seats
