Look closer in the styrofoam. Should be two pair of glasses. They are not packaged together. I have received many calls from customers thinking only one pair in the box, but closer inspection, usually found the second pair.

As Mike noted -- the second pair of glasses is buried near the bottom of the box. I missed them the first time as well.

BTW -- the included IR glasses are ok, but not great if you plan to watch a decent amount of 3D. If you do -- you will need to source the Sony RF emitter dongle and an Xpand RF emitter. Then you can use RF glasses (like the Samsung RF glasses). They are a much better solution.

I have not received it yet, just want to be proactive. So two pair of glasses that work out of the box are included? Where can I get two more for a good price to have a total of four?

The PS3 glasses work fine and are cheaper than the official glasses.

Looky here!

PS3 glasses are a good option if you elect to stick with IR. But if you want a lot better experience (and more comfortable glasses) make the move to an IR glasses setup.

Looks like I have a buyer for my 55ES -- and he doesn't care about 3D. So I have the Sony 3D emitter dongle and the Xpand RF emitter available for anyone interested. I will post in the classifieds -- but feel free to PM me.

I just spent a few hundred dollars for this emitter and cable.

Still have not set up my Sony projector. Will be doing it this week.

I would highly recommend anyone interested in 3D to grab Skrill's deal. You will be able to use the more comfortable RF glasses.

Hey, sorry, I bought his adapter. I got it for my brother who also has a 55es. The model number is XPAND AD025-RF-X1-NP. I bought mine off ebay here.

You still need the Sony adapter cable shown here.

Or you can forego the adapter cable entirely and solder a RJ45 terminated ethernet cable directly to the circuit board of the XPAND emitter as described here. This is what I would have done if my 55es didn't already have the adapter cable included.

WAIT! I just did some more research and found this post stating you can order the emitter and adapter cable directly from XPAND:

Contact David Chechelashvili at david.chechelashvili@xpandcinema.com.
You can buy it direct from Xpand by using paypal and they will ship UPS ground or UPS two-day.

I have been enjoying my new HW55ES for a couple of weeks. The PQ is amazing. I am coming from a Panasonic PT-AE7000U followed by a PT-AE8000U for a short time. I owned many projectors before that. My experience with the Panasonic was pretty much a disaster overall but I won't get into all of that. I haven't spent too much time messing with 3D but I did watch a bit of Sharks 3D and I played Halo Anniversary Edition with 3D enabled. I found it to be pretty good. With the Panasonic I had their 3rd gen RF glasses which were very light-weight and comfortable. I experienced quite a bit of ghosting though. With the Sony I am seeing very little ghosting. I saw none in Sharks. In Halo I always had a problem with the Panasonic with terrible ghosting on foreground objects like the gun. The main rifle in the game has a digital readout with your current ammo info displayed and it was always clearly duplicated. With the Sony that is just barely visible and only if you look for it. I was very pleased and 3D is considerably better for me on the Sony. The thing that I did notice was that if I turned my head ghosting would appear. Is this due to the IR glasses? It's not a problem if you are looking straight on but I'm wondering how well it will work when people are spread out a bit to watch a movie. I have 4 pairs of the IR glasses. I wonder if I get an IR extender and pace it to the side of the viewing area if that would help. The RF solution is just too expensive for how much I will actually use the 3D. I had the Panasonic for 3 years and I probably used the 3D once a year.
