Hi all its been awhile. Last summer I got my daughter and husband a 60738 as a gift. I am planning on getting a 73740 for my wife and I early next year. I want to get the kids 3d glasses and a emitter for Christmas. Whatever I get them I want to make sure it is compatable with the 740 series tv that I plan on getting next year. I know the 740 has a built in emitter. I have read some things on 3d glasses with the search function. I don't want to ask what is the best glasses and emitter I can get. I know the DLP link function can be turned off on the 738 and I hope a external emitter can be used on the 740 so we can use our glasses at thier house and vice versa. Just looking for your thoughts on what would work for us and what is working for you ?

There are many options out there, and here are a few.

These http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/accessories/3DG-X103 are sold for your TV, and these http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/accessories/3DG-EX103 are the same, but come with an emitter that you can give to your daughter and husband.

Available here http://www.amazon.com/Mitsubishi-3DG.../dp/B005HFJFJU and here http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B005HFJFKO

The XpanD Universal glasses http://www.amazon.com/Xpand-X103-Uni.../dp/B00462RMS6 appear to be the same and are switchable to match many other TV brands, so you might/could watch 3D on the neighbors TV as well!

I would recommend getting a pair of the Mitsubishi EX-103 with the emitter first, and get the XpanD X-103 for additional pairs if the Mitsubishi glasses aren't switchable.

You could also go DLP-Link all around and get these
http://www.amazon.com/Xpand-X102-XP-.../dp/B004N9ABQM or these http://www.ultimate3dheaven.com/uldlpliwi3dg.html.

Thanks Augerhandle, the Xpand 3DG-EX103 and 3DG-X103 would be a good choice I think. They do make mits glasses it looks like. After looking at thier site, it looks like the glasses would work with the 740's built in emitter. I was on ebay and youtube and found these from Dimensional Optics. They are rechargeable, I don't know if there are drawbacks to rechargeable glasses vs non rechargeable. Here are a couple links. Have you heard of these before ?

Besides DLP-Link, Ultraclear also has rechargeable IR glasses. The one you linked to look like the same Chinese made glasses as the Ultraclear rechargeables http://www.ultimate3dheaven.com/ul3dgl.html and Ultraclear has child sized glasses as well. A lot of distributors are selling them, just in different colors.

The problem with rechargeables is they have to sit plugged in to a USB cord until charged, and you can't really use them while you wait. It's easier to swap out a battery and get right back to watching TV.

I assume someone has separate chargers availble for the button batteries. If that's the case, you'd get the best of both worlds, as you could then swap in new batteries and put the dead ones on the charger.
