I'm a newbie and just moving on from a tube to a 3d tv and am comparing two different tvs, the 55" samsung es8000 and the lg lm8600. I know the samsung es8000 uses active 3d glasses. The salesman said it only supports up to 4 pairs of glasses. Is this true? Also, if it is true, is this the case for all tvs that use active 3d glasses? I couldn't find this info anywhere. I have more than 4 in my family and if this is true, I'd be leaning toward the lm8600 since it's passive.

Any help would be appreciated.

No- there is no limit to the amount of 3D glasses supported by the TV set. I think he meant to say that 4 pairs are INCLUDED, you can buy as many more as you need. Think about it this way - the TV emits a signal, either RF or IR. The glasses pick up this signal and sync to the picture. It's like asking how many radios in your house will pick up a station. As many as you can fit in a room! So, don't worry, you can get as many glasses for your active set as needed.

So did you buy the Samsung ES8000 or the LG LM8600?
