The 3rd generation ones that are M-3DI compatible are said to work. Not any of the previous 2 generations though. Panasonic, Xpand, and Epson are members of the consortium for this technology. Samsung and Sony are not, so it's far from a universal one but better than the complete chaos seen in previous years.

I hear about Sony Playstation glasses will work with epson too
post #6 of 367
I can confirm that the following glasses do not work with the 3010...

Nvidia 3D Vision
Samsung 1st gen IR
Xpand 103

Not that anyone was expecting them to work but we tried them out just the same.

They should because they use the same technology. I don't believe Panasonic is shipping the 3rd gen glasses yet.

Yes, I've got a pair, and they do work.

How are they in comparison to the stock epson glasses?
post #12 of 367
I'm new here and I did a quick search so I apologize in advance if this is a duplicate thread.

I picked up a 3010 last week, still waiting for my actual screen but have been using a sheet of white seemless paper and I love it so far.

Anyways, I've heard and have been reading that the 3010 supports non-Epson brand 3D active shutter glasses. From what I understand, any glasses using the new M-3Di format (www.m-3di.com) should work.

What I haven't been able to find is a definitive list of what glasses work and what ones don't. I thought it'd be a good idea to start a thread and people could post what glasses work and what glasses don't work.

So, anyone have success with non-Epson glasses and the 3010?

UPDATE 15/12/2011: Epson has a small list here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...61&foid=199263

Glasses that work:
Blick (verify that 3D3 is the Panny model #- NOT the ones with '2') NOTE: Blick glasses are one size and do not come in S/M/L
Panasonic TY-EW3D3SU/TY-EW3D3MU/TY-EW3D3LU
Panasonic TY-EW3D2SW/TY-EW3d2MW/TY-EW3D2LW
Panasonic TY-EW3D10U

Mixed results:

The only glasses that we know work are the Epson glasses and the 3rd generation Panasonic glasses which meet the m-3di standard. I believe that is it. Nobody else, as far as I know has confirmed any other glasses working.

Thanks ack_bk - is there an easy way to tell if the glasses are 3rd generation? Or do they say M-3Di on the box somewhere?
post #15 of 367
The 3rd generation model # is TY-EW3D3MU .

Ed

I don't think it shows M-3Di anywhere on the box.
post #16 of 367
So TY-EW3D3M wouldn't work?

Hard to say. I do know the 3rd gen glasses are superior based on user reports, so I would recommend getting the 3rd gen glasses.

Glasses make a big difference in terms of ghosting/cross-talk.

I hear you, very hard to find them in the US as well. They are backordered everywhere unless you want to pay double....

But I would rather wait than buy glasses that I may not be happy with.

Yeah for sure. The Epson glasses work just fine but unfortunately they're HUGE on my kids (5 & 7). Not to mention, can't seem to find anymore of the Epson glasses to order up here yet either.

The size is my problem too with my kids. I am hoping to get two pairs of the small 3rd gen Panny glasses. Hopefully more M-3DI glasses will be hitting the market soon.
post #22 of 367
I saw 'em on Amazon as well as ebay. Also another aftermarket brand that they state are compatible with the Panny 3rd generation ones with a $ back guarantee.....These are on ebay. I strongly suggest that somone from here be the guiena pig and buy 'em & report back! LOL

So tell me this, why don't any if the glasses from these companies advertise that they are M-3DI compatible? Or is it just so new that only Panasonic have glasses out on the open market?
And yes by open market I do mean EBay because that seems to be the only place you can get them right now...

I believe they just announced the standard in August. This time next year there will be many more options.

Use caution, I ordered the Samsung megamind starter kit "for 2011 TVs " and the glasses were RF based. Did not work.

Amazon listed the Panasonic TY-EW3D3MU glasses for only $55 each over the weekend even though they were out of stock (expected in-stock date of Dec. 3rd).

I ordered a couple a pair at that price and now see they are back to $99. My order still says $55, so I hope they get some in the next couple weeks.
