Hello,

I own the EPSON EH-TW9000W projector (european equivalent to 5010e) and I would like to know whether anyone of you has found 3D glasses for kids that work with the projector - apart from the Panasonic ones.

The glasses that come with the projector are quite big for my daughter

Do SONY kids glasses work with the projector ?

Thanks a lot.

Yes, and the Sony PS3 3D glasses run smaller in size, so they fit kids pretty well.

I bought a pair of Xpand 104's in Small size for my 5 year old and they fit him a treat. Xpands are also as near as dammit the same as the Epsons in terms of performance

I bought my 5 years old son the Panasonic TY-EW3D3SU and they are perfect. I bought two pairs so he can have a friend watching with him

The smile on his face worth everything...

Thanks arieldr,
for the reply.
The Panasonic 3rd gen glasses in small size are getting harder and harder to be found and also expensive....
Just wanted to figure out if there are other alternatives for kids from other brands

At what age is it safe to allow kids to watch 3D via Active Shutter? Are there any age recommendations for passive/polarized glasses?

Lex Luthor, Ruler of Australia, activate the machine!

I just had the Epson PowerLite 6010 installed and I'm having a really hard time finding 3D active glasses for my kids. Before I spend $200+ for 2 pairs, is someone able to confirm 100% that the Panasonic TY-EW3D3SU will work with my projector.

I just picked up 2 of the Panasonic TY-EW3D3SU for my kids, and the small frames were perfect for my 6yr old and even my 4yr old. Now if I could only get them to stop manhandling the lens and smearing them with their greasy paws smile.gif

The pic btw is great, I like the clear on/off switch over the epsons which is hard to figure out if they are on or off. I wish I could buy these for $50/each and i'd get more!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/360498669962?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

They come in blue and pink color plus they work wit both IR and Bluetooth and claim to be compatible with IR panasonic and Bluetooth panasonic TVs.

Has any of you any experience with these glasses and whether they will work with our projectors ??

Since nobody seemed to have any info for the glasses above I took the risk and bought a pair of red kids glasses.

I can confirm that the glasses work very good with the EPSON projector (EH/TW9000W european model of 5010e) and te size and style is great for kids smile.gif
I watch Arthur Christmas and Madagascar 3 in 3D and I was changing glasses between the EPSON ones, Panasonic ones and this glasses. I found this glasses a bit more relaxing than the other two but I could sometimes see a bit more ghosting on subtitles. Anyway I think they are great alternative since kids glasses are rare.

Another strange thing that I have notices is that when wearing the EPSON or Panasonic glasses I could see the information on the display of my receiver flickering, but when wearing this glasses I could not. Very strange....

Anyway here is the picture of the glasses.



I have ordered the glasses straight from the factory in China and cost me around 60USD with shipping and taxes included for delivering in Europe.

I bought a pair in blue for my grandson and can confirm that they work great with my 3010 which means they also work with the 5010/6010.
