These are in fact the same as the Monoprice ones they also support the 144hz frequency. I just received these from Amazon a few days ago and two pairs sell for $58 shipped. I have tested them and they work great.
I do know that 3d-Tv did previously sell the older version but it seems that the new DLP-2 Pros are the ones shipping now and are the 2013 design. The same is true with the True Depth and 3DActive rechargeable glasses being made by the same manufacturer.
The True Depth and 3DActive even have the same model number on them.

This is the link I used for the 3D0TV DLP 2 Pro 144k glasses on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004G2VJM6/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I also let Monoprice know that there glasses are now more expensive.

So the 3DTV Corp glasses look like the Monoprice ones now? Same frame as in this pic?:

If they are distributing the updated versions, they should update all their stock photos to show it. Not sure how Monoprice is supposed to compete with someone that appear to be selling an old design compared to their updated version. And I'm not sure I would have much ground to stand on if they sent me the old version as pictured and not the updated set I hoped to get.

They have more than one model, which one did you buy?

i watched IMAX under the sea with all the lights out and i did not have this same issue. the glasses worked great. i actually just ordered two more pairs. i was watching The Hobbit when i had the issue, but the lights were on. ill give them more use before i pass any more judgement but overall i like them a lot. they seem to work perfect and are very light.

Do they look like those in the pic on Amazon, or like the ones that SirQ linked? The ones that say 2013 model in red?

Yes they should update the site but the fact is that they are shipping the new versions. I have 4 pairs ordered two different times and I got the ones that support 144kz. If by some chance you got the old version Amazon would even pay to send them back since the Amazon site states that they work with all DLP projectors.
They are a great buy at 2 pairs for $58 shipped. I also just checked the Monoprice site and they say nothing about supporting 144kz. The description seems very similar to the one on the Amazon site. The 3DtV and Monoprice glasses come from the same manufacturer. The difference is that one get two pairs for $58 shipped from Amazon and it would cost $84 plus shipping for two pairs from Monoprice. In fact the box on the Monoprice site even looks the same as the ones the 3dTv's came in from Amazon.

Thank you for the reply. As you said I am planning to bite the bullet.

Do you have any recommendations for kids glasses? I need to buy a pair for 5-6 years old kids...

That is a tough one. I am using the Okba since they are cheap and light. The red ones from 3D TV might be fine for this use. You can even use the same ones that you are planning to get for children.
Try them out when you get them to see how they fit and if they are too heavy.

Anyone know of kid size glasses that dont look like kid size glasses? I have a friend and she is just very petite and tiny but all these kid glasses look so well cheesy and cheap, is there a smaller version of say the style similar to the normal 3dTVCorp?

Hi 'Shaft65', I've got 4 pairs of the Sainsonics and use my w1070 for 3D using blu-rays, PS3 gaming and Sky. I can say for sure that the 3D blu-rays give a sharper and smoother picture than Sky 3D. I still enjoy the 3D content on Sky, but it's better from blu-ray in my opinion. Hope you agree given you've splashed out now on a 3D blu-ray player! Apparently Sky 3d loses half of the horizontal resolution due to the 'side by side' nature of its 3D format. Hope this helps .

Thanks macster2.

Yes I do agree that 3D blu-ray is better than Sky. In fact at times it is stunning. But, I am still getting 'blurring' with any motion shots, even slowish left to right/right to left camera pans. It has to be the glasses doesn't it?

3dtv corp has some that will work. Model #DLPRKG or like rwestley said any of the smaller glasses will probably be ok.

That is what I did. If you need more pairs the 3DActive is the same as true depth glasses and come with cases and cost less. Love to hear what you think of both the Benq and True Depth.

Bought the SianSonic 144Hz from Canton. Delivery within 7 days. Cheap at ~$25 including postage.
The box still says 120Hz but it works with the W1070.

Yes, there's an occasional red screen, seen it once with Tangled.
Without the glasses, the screen does actually look reddish.

I must say the glasses feel flimsy, especially the arms.
The sync drops out if I turn too much to either side but one press of the button re-sync.

Oh, initially I thought there was a problem with my eye sight but a further push on the power bottom made the image sharper.
Maybe that could be something to do with the L-R thingy that others have wrote about!

Oh, the PS3 plays 3D well. IIRC I didn't have to do much to enable 3D playback.
The only thing now is to figure out how to enable 3D gaming from the PC. Games like Crysis 3.

For $25, The SianSonic is very cheap, compared to the likes of the original Benq glasses. Am getting some more from the same eBay seller.

Regarding 3D on the W1070., it is indeed darker. Will have to see whether a white screen with a gain of 1.2 will improve the brightness over my beige coloured wall!

I think PC games use Nividia 3D technology. Don't you have to buy the separate Nividia 3D glasses?

Okay so I watched IMAX Under the Sea 3D with both glasses, the D3 did have better color but only very slightly, I think to the point that if your not anal about color you would probably not even notice, they both perform amazing in terms of blocking out the Red flash.

I do think that I actually find the 3dTVCorp to be more comfortable then the Benq D3, so yeah between the two I would say save your money and get the True Depths or 3dCorpTV instead of the D3.

As I watch more and more 3d I will expand on my thoughts.

If you have a graphics card from Nvidia, you have to install the Nvidia 3dtv Play.

Totally agree. 3DTV's are a great buy at two for $58.00 3DActive from Dimensional Optics are the same as the True Depths and cost $99 for two pairs that are rechargeable and come with nice cases. The 3DActive are the new models and must be ordered direct from Dimensional Optics to be sure one gets the new version.

Yes, but these are not the ones to get. They are the same as the OKBA ones in black and they not fully block the red flash,.

I suggest these.

They block the red flash and the construction is much better than the light red ones.

On the Sains there is red flash BUT when you look at a pure black screen in 3D it will look RED.eek.gif I found a tip in this thread ....try a dry erase marker that is red. Paint the little receiver on the glasses and guess what ? No more red flash !tongue.gif Blacks are black and much better contrast. Give it a try. Had to do this because sadly the 3DTV glasses don't fit over my prescription frames. The Sains do. Or another option would be to get just new prescription lenses and set them in the opening in the frame of the 3DTV lenses.wink.gif

I got the ebay set in yesterday. They perform much the same as Saisonics but they fit great on my 4 year old with Rx glasses well.

Great experiment. Now to try and find dry erase marker that is red...what are they? LOL.

I thought that covering the sensor with a red felt tip marker like a Sharpie (not a dry erase marker) would fix a sync issue with the cheap Chinese glasses . . . I didn't know that this trick also got rid of the red flash! I wonder if covering the sensor with a bit of transparent red plastic (from an old pair of red / green 3D glasses) would work? Worth a try I guess. Have others had luck fixing the red flash problem with these cheap glasses?

So, another $40 outlay for the software. And then use the siansonic glasses. Is that correct?
