I had a 2009 Mits DLP and used Optoma and Xpand DLP-Link glasses as well as the Mitsubishi kit glasses with this TV. I sold it and now have a 2010 Mits TV and currently have the Mitsubishi kit glasses and the Xpand X103 glasses. For what it's worth here are my thoughts for a 2010 model:
The DLP-Link glasses are best for the 2009 and earlier Mitsubishi 3D-ready TV's. IMHO they are not the best choice for a 2010 model. They are much less comfortable. CFL lighting (especially overhead) causes serious interference with the sync, more so than emitter glasses. They have occasional sync issues not due to CFL's, bright high contrast scenes can wash out the DLP-Link flash and cause brief but distracting flickering. One big problem in my opinion is that the polarization of the lenses on the currently available DLP-Link glasses is rotated 45 degrees as compared to emitter glasses. This causes static polarization rainbows due to the plastic screen. See my older post for an example:
I currently have 2 Mitsubishi glasses and 2 X103 glasses that I use with my 2010 73738. Both use the Mitsubishi emitter from the 3D kit. The X103 glasses have a bit less ghosting. Ghosting doesn't happen too often on these DLP's but when it does I definitely see more ghosting with the Mitsubishi glasses. Also the X103 glasses produce a warmer tone to colors. My personal preference is the X103 glasses in this regard.
I always use the X103's for my personal viewing and keep the Mitsubishi glasses for guests. The Mitsubishi glasses aren't bad by any means but I definitely prefer the X103's. If you're not too picky then extra glasses can be bought on ebay for cheap. The Samsung 3D starter kit glasses are the exact same thing as the Mitsubishi glasses, just rebranded. They will work with the Mitsubishi emitter, a Samsung kit (2 glasses plus 3D movie) can be had for about $150.
Hope this helps.
so the x103 will work with the emitter then? i thought the red ones were 102 and the black ones were 103... 3 denoting black and 2 denoting red.
also as far as the samsung 3d glasses go.. whats is the difference between ssg-2100x or 2100t or 2100x/za... My mitsubishi 3d glasses are ssg-2100mg/za .... does one model number performce better than the other?
where can the samsung glassed be had for 150?
The X102 glasses are DLP-Link only and are different than the X103 glasses. The X103's are universal 3d glasses and work with the Mitsubishi emitter. They will also work with pretty much every 3D TV that is currently out, such as Samsung, LG, Sony and Panasonic. The software in the glasses can recognize the different IR codes that the different manufacturer's use.
The Mitsubishi glasses are the exact same as the Samsung SSG-2100AB glasses.
"ssg-2100x or 2100t or 2100x/za" are the different names of the Samsung 3D kits. The difference is the 3D movie or movies included in each. They all contain the same SSG-2100AB glasses. There are also rechargable and kids glasses that Samsung sells. These will work as well with the Mitsubishi emitter but are not sold in a kit. As far as I know there is no performance difference.
There are Samsung 3D kits on ebay (usually open box, sometimes brand new) that sell for about 150 and include Monsters vs Aliens in 3D. The newest kit that contains IMAX movies and How to Train Your Dragon sells for more. These kits are $300 plus at retail stores.
