I am looking for 3D glasses options for the 5020. The Epson version is model V12h548006 but they cost like $100 per pair. Does anyone know anywhere that may sell them cheaper or if there are any other options to use for the 5020?

The Samsung $20 glasses work perfect with my 5020... Did I mention they are $20? Samsung part number: SSG4100GB

Thanks!

I have been referred to the 4100 and 5100's. Which is a better choice or whats the difference?

How is the experience with them compared to the Epson ones that come with it?

I have 4 pairs of the 4100's from Samsung. They work just fine. I like the Epson glasses better just because they are more like real glasses and they are closed at the sides but for the price difference it's not worth buying the epson at 100 bucks a crack.

I tried the 3Active 3D glasses for 2012 Panasonic with my Epson 3020 and, while they did sync up, there was way too much ghosting/crosstalk to be usable.

I also have a pair of the Samsung 4100's and they do work, but I only use them as spares for when company is over as the experience is definitely better with the stock Epson glasses since there is nothing blocking light from the side on the Samsungs. They sync perfectly and do work well though.

I just ordered a pair of the Panasonic TY-ER3D4MU glasses as they are supposed to be pretty good, I'll report back after I receive them. They're a few bucks less than the Epson glasses so I'm hoping they work well.

Supposedly, any glasses with the "Full HD 3D RF" logo should work with the Epson 3020/5020.

The vote is in...

The Panasonic TY-ER3D4MU glasses paired with the Epson 3020 is a fantastic combo. The Panasonic glasses are a bit brighter than the stock Epson glasses and sync perfectly with the 3020. Not only are they brighter, but also have less crosstalk than the stock glasses and present a lot more image detail as the lenses appear to be higher quality (both in lens clarity and in active LCD performance). That's saying a lot since I was very happy with the stock Epson glasses 3D performance.

They aren't cheap, but were about $20 less than the Epson glasses. I'll be purchasing another pair soon.

The 3active glasses look really nice but it doesn't list Epson on there website as a brand that is compatable with there glasses. I wonder if they would work. Has anyone tried those Quantum G5 glasses? I read mixed things.

I have read several times about people setting the 3d glasses to "high". I've looked all over my Epson glasses and I don't see that adjustment. Is the adjustment for this on the menu screen?

I have a Panasonic Vierra 3D plama TV too with 4 glasses. I just purchased the Epson 3020 3D projector. Could you provide me with direction on how to pair these Panasonic glasses with my Epson?

How do you pair it? The Epson glass pairs when you click the pair button. My Panasonic glasses doesn't have a pairing button. Any idea on how to program a Panasonic glass with epson 3d 3020 projector?

I remember pairing the Panasonic glasses with the projector was easy, but can't remember the details. I thought I just followed the included instructions. If I can find/remember how I did it, I'll post back.
