Can anyone tell me which 3D glasses will work with this projector? I need to purchase some from Amazon, but I want to be sure I order the correct ones.

The tech employed by the W1070 is 144hz DLP-Link - so glasses supporting this standard should be fine.

I'd love to hear which brand is the best bang for buck 144hz DLP-Link glasses. Sainsonic seem to be popular and cheap, but I recall reading somewhere that they are quite dim in use. What would you lot recommend - Which glasses are bright, clear with great 3D?

With DLP-Link glasses, you're looking for two things:
  1. Blocking the 'red flash' (the apparent red 'tint' caused by 3D mode); and
  2. Minimizing crosstalk; so that each eye sees the correct image without ghosting from the image intended for the other eye

The EStar-America glasses (see here) are very well received in this regard.

I use Dimensional Optics 3DActive glasses (I bought a 4-pack, here), which are also very good - and well-priced - and hence get my personal recommendation here.

However in my experience, the original BenQ glasses do the slightly better job (available here) - but at a higher cost that makes them not entirely worth it.

So you would suggest one of the brands linked by people above over the sainsonic ones?

If you want to go very cheap, the G15-DLP glasses are pretty much the cheapest you can get, and the quality of the 3D is actually very, very good, at least on par with the Estars I have. The downside is that the construction is about as simple as can be so they're not as comfortable... unless you're like me and both wear glasses and have a big head, in which case the arms of the G15s don't use as much pressure as the Estars do. They've also got smaller lenses than most, which might be an issue depending on how close to like to sit. I'm perfectly happy with the G15-DLP, and at around $12 per pair they're pretty much impossible to beat for value. Comfort is a big question mark (some people like them, some hate them) but for the price it's hard to deny that at the very least they're perfect backup pairs or extras to have lying around for company.
