I would definitely stick with the Panasonic TY-EW3d3m 3rd generation glasses as they work great and are nice and light (27 grams) and comfortable. Plus they hold a charge for a very long time... many movie viewings on a single charge.
I haven't personally used the Vue glasses...but with the non rechargeable battery and the flat wide open at the side style, they appear very similar to the Panasonic 1st gen glasses which had problems with reflected light getting in from the side due to that same open design...
On a side note, if the price of the PS3 glasses is too tempting to pass up, but you do find that the temples are indeed too tight... you can do the boiling water adjustment trick! Fill a tall mug or glass with boiling water and hold one of the temples in the water for about 30 seconds. Then take it out and carefully bend the end of the temple outward a bit and hold it there. You can then "set" it by putting it in some ice water. I did this trick on a couple pairs and it worked well to take the extra pressure off of my head....although they still are about twice as heavy as the Panny glasses which makes them just bit uncomfortable in that respect yet...
I was wondering if these glasses are compatible, they are on sale at bestbuy. Maybe the 4 means next generation to what you recommended above?
