Samsung DLP LED - Best Glasses for LED Display

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an HLT5687S and was wondering if anyone else with a Samsung DLP LED had any thoughts on the whole shutter glasses/DLP Link debaucle.

I'm well aware that for the Mits sets you should definitely buy DLP Link shutter glasses for pre-2010 TVs and the IR based glasses for the 2010 models. Since these are all lamp based TVs though (as far as I know anyways), I'm wondering if things are a bit different for the DLP LED crowd.

I bought the Optoma ZD-101's (based on the whole "What's wrong with DLP on my Mits" thread) and couldn't get the glasses to stay sync'd. I went through all the standard troubleshooting for them and eventually sent them back - I'm not looking for replies discussion CFL lighting, brightness settings... or anything else related to troubleshooting DLP Link glasses. I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with the IR emitter glasses included in the Mits Starter Kit on a DLP LED TV. And if so, what are your thoughts? Is the DLP Link flash as big of an issue as it is with the lamp based sets, how is the PQ, would you recommend DLP Link over the IR glasses, etc.

Again, just looking for thoughts from those with DLP LED TVs. I've read all the threads and don't need the standard "this is how DLP Link works" or "you need to reverse sync with the Optomas" replies.

Thanks.

I have a HL61A750, IO Display IR-based shutters, and Xpand X102s.

I don't have a problem with either set of glasses, though I prefer the X102s.

Thanks. I was actually wondering how the cheap IO glasses worked. Depending on how the Mits kit IR glasses work (ie - if they're awful with my display), I might buy the x103s when they come out and then buy a few cheap IO glasses for when I have people over (not looking to drop $150 a pair for glasses that get rarely used). That's assuming the x103s recognize the IO emitter that is...

I have a Samsung HL61A750 LED DLP and purchased the Optoma DLP link glasses and so far they have worked perfect. Once they are turned on they immediately link up and hold the signal with no ghosting.

I'm assuming my Optoma DLP Link issue was either a problem with my TV or a bad pair of glasses. Either way, I'm not going the DLP Link route again.

From what I've read though, almost everybody who has the Optoma glasses love them.

Havent seen any samsung led dlp (3d ready) on ebay in awhile. A nice 61" popped up recently (not my listing) with stickers still on the front like it was brand new. Currently around $500 but only 20 hours left.

I use the Samsung SSG1000 Glasses with my Samsung HL61A750 3D ready DLP LED HDTV. I really like the glasses. These are the glasses that were specifically made for our HDTVs. You can get them on eBay for under $60 with the IR transmitter.

Which is pretty funny considering that a year ago it was difficult to find them at all.

On a side note, if I wanted to evaluate both DLP-link and IR glasses on my own, are any usable at the same time, or will I end up having to go all one way. I thought there was one type of DLP-link with an on-glasses switch for modes. This would be for a 67A750. I'm thinking of just getting the Ultra Clear and seeing if they work for me. Some people are perfectly happy with them, but then again, some people say they can't see a difference between DVD and Blu-ray... I have 20/15 vision though, so while I don't go looking for defects to ruin my experience, I would be capable of noticing differences in quality. If a movie I really want to see is available on Blu-ray, I'll avoid watching it on DVD so I don't ruin the experience for myself, just to give a reference level for my degree of analness, on the other hand, I'm perfectly happy living with the lower black levels of my DLP relative to a Kuro, as the bigger size trumps any differences in image quality compared to the size of TV I would have been able to get for the same price in any other format.

Someone must have uncovered a stockpile of the Samsung SSG-1000 3D Glasses in China. That is where I bought my last pairs from and I did not have a problem with the transaction. I also remember when the SSG-1000 3D Glasses were hard to find and if you did find a pair for sale you would be paying more than under $50 a pair.

I believe some of the DLP glasses and IR Glasses can be used at the same time.
