The set does say its 3D in the info box when it pops up in the upper right hand corner. The glasses are from Ultimate3DHeaven and are the DLP Link Ultra clear wireless. They also show a IR emitter for the Samsung that plugs into the 3D port on the back of the set. I guess I'll try that and return the DLP Link for IR versions. Before I return the glasses any other ideas?

I got 3D working on my 5689s using a PS3, the Mitsubishi adapter + the pre-programmed geffen
* apparently you can get adapters that work with Samsungs now but not when i got mine.
here is my setup:
PS3 connects to the Mits adapter (HDMI 1.3 cable)
Mits adpater connects to the geffen (HDMI 1.3 cable)
the geffen connects to HDMI 3 on the my Samsung HL-T5689s (HDMI 1.3 cable)
I have HDMI 3 labeled as "PC" in the menu (apparently this was required for some sets as 3D was expected to come only from a PC connected to the TV)
When I start a 3D game or Video i have to go to the TV menu and turn on 3D in the "3D/Dual View" menu.
* i can select between standard or inverted but my Viewsonic DLP-Link PGD-150 glasses will also let you switch by toggling the power button so it doesn't matter which i choose.
Once 3D mode is on, my TV picture takes on a reddish hue (this is the DLP-Link "flash" between frames) once i put the glasses on the red disappears and all is good.
* I have heard that overhead fluorescent lights can confuse DLP-Link glasses as the lights also flicker at 60Hz.
* If your glasses loose sync, be sure it's not just a dead battery.
* I find the results are best in a dark room. I find there are reflections of stuff behind you in the glasses if i try using them in bright daytime.
i don't use the 3D all that much, but it's fun when i do.
