Deciding on 3D glasses for panny plasma and possible future PJ.

post #1 of 10

3D glasses Panasonic 60ST30 and future, most likely, JVC PJ

1) Are there two different Panasonic 3D glasses? What is the difference between them?

2) Has anybody bought and used the Xpand X103 glasses with their Panasonic ST30? How did you like them?

If any of this was discussed before, by all means, hit me with a link here or via PM.

Trying to decide which glasses to get because there is a good possibility that I will buy a PJ like a JVC X30/RS45 within the next 2 years. A Panny 7000 would be fine with the panny glasses, but the panny glasses won't work with the JVC PJ's. Wondering if there are any drawbacks to the Xpand X103 glasses other than the need to get a screen to match the projector(due to polarization issues). While it is possible I could get a Panasonic 7000 PJ, it is more likely I will get a JVC X30/RS45.

It may be worthwhile to wait on the 4th gen panny glasses. Supposedly they will conform to the new "open" standard that claims interoperability between vendors. Not sure JVC has bought into the same but that's what is holding me back from buying glasses is this proprietary crap.

4th generation glasses? Panasonic isn't even even stocking the 3rd generation glasses...I thought that is what we are waiting on?!

Didn't Xpand quite recently release new 3D glasses? Are those the one you're talking about or an older version?

Are Panny 3 generation glasses better then 2 generation? I believe the two glasses that came with my VT30 are second gen. I need a couple of more glasses anyway.

I have a Panny ST30 and am looking to buy a few for the family. I'm not really clear on what glasses are compatible with my set.

I bought 2 pair of Panny 3G glasses and like them better than the 2nd gen: they fit much better over my prescription glasses, and feel a little more secure (the 2nd gen temples didn't fit the sides of my head as well). They also have a 3D==> 2D switch on the glasses which are handy as well (in case a viewer wants to watch the movie in 2D).

I have the Universal Panasonic equivalent for the 3rd gen Panny 3G glasses from Blick and have had not issues with them so far. One other poster in the 3D Tech forum mentioned returning them after loss of quality after 2 weeks though.

Thanks. I ordered two of the new 3. generation glasses from Panasonic.

Hopefully they can also be used with other active 3D screens/projectors. If not, more money need to spended for my future projector/screen. Oh heck, money is suppose to be spent anyway.
