These look like some of the cheaper brands from China. I don't even think they are DLP glasses.

It would be difficult for anyone to have tried them as they are listed as 'Coming Soon'

After my BenQ W1070 projector purchase in January, I finally splurged on a set of Dimensional Optics 3D DLP Link glasses. I have 30 days to try them, before they are keepers. For those who have compared the Dimensional Optics glasses to others, can you pls let me know of your thoughts regarding pros/cons, apart from price?

Also, I watched a couple of 3D movies -- Hugo and Wreck It Ralph -- which were pretty immersive, but were slightly uncomfortable to watch in 3D. I wonder if you all can advise if I need to change any settings on the projector to reduce this discomfort? My seating position is roughly 8-10 ft from the screen.

Thanks!

If they are in any way similar to Sainsonic glasses I for one would stay well clear .... but there is no proof that they are similar, just a word of warning.

EStar America ESG601 are down to $34.99. I wonder whether they're better than the 3DTV for $29.

There are two, the DLPRL (rechargeable) and DLP2 (battery). Here are the links from the manufacturer. Amazon also sells them.

I got the ones in the first link right after Christmas. Seemed pretty good. Some of the 3D we tried out from Netflix was just bad, but others it is really good. nitro circus looked the best. black looked pretty black to me and they only went out of sync when i looked away from the screen for a bit, otherwise no issues with losing sync.

I was apprehensive ordering direct from them because their website has a horrible domain name and doesn't look very good, but the glasses showed up and so far so good. We'll see if they continue to hold a charge over time or develop any other issues.

Thank you to rwestley for the recommendation.

Unboxed them last night (ordered four pairs for the family for Christmas), charged them up and tried them last night on 3 different movies. I have no experience with any other glasses with the W1070, but I will say that these are comfortable, show no red flash that I can see, and just work. I was trying to make them lose sync by walking out of the room staring at lights, etc.. but as soon as I stepped back in front of the screen within 1/2 a second they were synced back up.

Very pleased. Tried it out with IMAX Under the Sea, and everything looked stunning. I spent $169 on 4 pairs after coupon, which is a little bit more than the other glasses on amazon / ebay, but given that they are rechargeable, fit perfectly, come with a nice case, and I ordered direct from the company makes it feel worth it to me. Before I made my order I called and talked with someone at the company and they were extremely helpful, explained how the glasses fit on his 7 year old granddaughter etc.... If you are on the fence, you will be happy with these. But, I can't speak for the other options.

Hi Farleyville, I just ordered some of these glasses for my W1070 and was wondering if they had an option to only sync one eye's view at a time. My family should be fine, but we have a couple of family friends who cannot see 3D because of vision issues. However, they could potentially watch with us if the glasses can only show one eye's view (if you know what I mean). Do you know if that is possible with those? Or should I just not invite them to 3D movies at my house wink.gif?

As far as I know they do not, only have 1 button to turn them on and it syncs both eyes. But I doubt they give this option as 3D only works with both eyes synced. If you close one eye, the stereoscopic effect is lost.

Yeah, they can't see stereoscopic images in real life (one is missing an eye, the other can't focus out of both at the same time), so I was hoping that there might be a way for them to watch with us. But if not that'll just mean they get invited over for 2D movies and we won't mention 3D.

I don't see any problem with your friends using the glasses - they will have to use them to see one clear image with the good eye. If it helps, you can block one lens somehow - use a rubber band to cover it with cotton or plastic cutout.

This is what I'd already concluded would have to be done. Oh well. Thanks for your help on this: I do appreciate it!

Hi, from memory one brand, I believe it is TrueDepth, have an option, via a push button, to select one 'eye view' or the other. It was principally for use with multiplayer games where one player had his/her glasses set to one 'eye' and the other set to the opposite 'eye'. I think that they were version 3.5 and the option had to be requested (no additional cost). Do some research on this, it was discussed earlier in this thread from memory.

There are also a number of videos on YouTube that show you how to 'modify' 3D glasses to be 'single view'. Search for 'Make Active 3D Dual Play Glasses' or similar. You could buy very cheap Sainsonic glasses and modify them using the instructions, this would be the cheapest option. It depends on how 'handy you are.

Here is an example of the DIY videos.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to make a note about Dimensional Optics customer service: phenomenal! I've been waiting for them to get glasses back in stock and ship them to me. Amazon said they'd be back in stock on 1/6: obviously it's later than that, so I sent an email to ask. Steve (Dimensional Optics' president) replied within an hour or so and said he'd upgrade me to expedited shipping at no charge and that he'd let me know as soon as they came in (they were on route from their factory). He then sent another email an hour or so after that to update me that they'd be getting their shipment tomorrow and he'd give me tracking via Amazon as soon as they were shipped. All in all, a few hours passed and I got several email updates from the President of the company. I'm very impressed. Hopefully I'll have more good things to say once they arrive and I try them out.

3ACTIVE glasses are $50 (Amazon)
3DTV CORP glasses are $30 (eBay)

For those who have both, why should I pay $20 more for the 3ACTIVE glasses?
post #711 of 799
My two cents:
I just bought on Amazon a couple of Cinemax glasses and they seem to the job perfectly.
I watched a bit of The Hobbit and they didn't lose sync, and they block the red tint as well. I'm living in Europe (Spain) and the 3DTVcorp and other ones were too expensive for me because of the shipping costs, I tried these, and I'm very happy with the result. I'm doing it via the PC, with a bluray drive and arcsoft total media theater. For some reason Corel WinDVD doesn't recognize the projector as 3D (even if for other 3D media like SBS files it works).

I've got a question but I don't know if this is the right place to do it, anyway, here it goes:
I have an AMD graphics card, can I do 3D gaming with the W1070 without an nVidia set? I read that there's something called "tridef" but I think that's software that converts 2D to 3D, so no real, native 3D.

Thank you all!!

Just took the plunge on some of the cheapest 144hz glasses available anywhere. Here's the Ebay link - they cost me $11.85 shipped which I believe is a new low for 144hz glasses period.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/144Hz-3D-DLP-Link-Active-Glasses-for-BenQ-Optoma-Acer-Viewsonic-LG-Projector-/360815797983?pt=US_Video_Glasses&hash=item54024c26df

Contrast is only listed at 750:1 compared to my beloved bulky 2x 3DTV Corps from Amazon which are 1200:1 contrast. But these cheap ones will be for an occasional guest (unless they completely suck). Some have said that certain glasses block red flash better than others - while I've also heard that they either block red flash or they don't and that there's no middle ground. Could be that these will not appear to do such a great job at it anyway since there are no sides to block the red light in your peripheral vision

I'll report back and let you guys know if they are halfway decent or not. From the design it looks like they just bought a bunch of discontinued Samsung glasses and repurposed them

Interesting. Please let us know how good or bad they are ;-)

I looked at the feedback for the seller and searched for "dlp-link" and all were positive. Look forward to your review as well!

Thanks, I have ordered a couple to try or perhaps convert to two player gaming devices. Great price!!

Actually, two are different in at least one aspect. The first one (in the picture) uses a CR2025 Button Cell Battery which is disposable (as do the ones direct from Sainsonic). The Amazon ones say they are rechargeable (but they are not!!) and two to three times the price.

So, we must assume that they are all the same, except for the name/logo printed on the top on the bridge (the first has 'DLP' and the other two have 'Gonbes') and they are on opposite sides, and of course the prices.

Edit: After a small amount of research, they are manufactured by Gonbes Technology CO.,Ltd. Shenzhen, Guangdong, China and are model number G15-DLP
