I have an Epson 6010 which has a spectacular 3D picture. Avatar is amazing. Only have the two pairs of 3D glasses which came with the projector. I'd love to get another couple of pairs of glasses but it's pretty pricey considering the few times we will use them. The Epson web site says that some (all?) Panasonic 3D glasses are compatible. A friend has LG 3D glasses which aren't compatible. Any insights about how to purchase some cheap 3D glasses that will work with my system? Thanks.

I use the Sony PS 3D glasses with my 6010 (IR glasses) and they cost around $50 or less a pair, if you can find them. I use the Samsung glasses (RF) with my 6020 and they cost between $20 and 30 a pair.

Deja Vu, thanks. So the 5010/6010 uses IR, and the 5020/6020 uses RF? Hard to find that information in the manual.

Incidentally, do you see any improvement in the 6020 over the 6010? In my dedicated theater it's hard to imagine a better image than my 6010, short of 4K.

The 6020 has an active DI in 3D and is a little brighter than the 6010, but I haven't seen the difference some talk about. Both do a very good job with 2D and 3D. The problem for me will be justifying an upgrade in November or December.

I have both, the Original glasses that come with the Epson and the Sony pairs that I bought because they are a better fit for smaller faces and kids.

The Epson glasses produces a richer picture with more depth, you will get 3D out of the Sony glasses but it will not impress you as much in the long run.

Do not steal, The powers that be do not like the competition.
