Also I read that the The AE8000's glasses have a 3D-to-2D function, which allows a user to watch in 3D but someone else in your household prefers 2D.
Are there glasses like this?
You will want the Panasonic TY-EW3D3 glasses (3rd gen IR), they come in small, medium and large (TY-EW3D3S, TY-EW3D3M, TY-EW3D3L), and then there are three regions for them which adds a C (China), U (US) and E (Europe) to the end of them (e.g. TY-EW3D3ME are the european medium glasses). Doing a seach for EW3D3 on ebay is good enough.
You can use any region with any projector, so its all done for sales reasons as far as I can see. I believe the small and large sizes have been discontinued (but can be found on sites like ebay still), although even though I have a slightly larger head ( :) well one size fits all baseball caps are not a good fit for me ), the medium fits me fine so I guess they decided these were all that was needed, they also fit over glasses okay.
There is also a 2nd Gen set floating around, the TY-EW3D2 which should also be compatible, they are heavier though and let slightly less light through according to Panasonic.
I've been gathering glasses up for my new projector myself and it seems that the consensus is that the Panasonic glasses are the most comfortable out there, and seem to perform as well as or better than the alternatives (tempted to try the Sony BR250's to see if they work though, also interested in trying the PS3 glasses too - but only if I can get a cheap pair from ebay).
Will see this weekend if the Samsung SSG-2100's will work with the PT-AT6000E, I have heard really old Samsung IR glasses were incompatible, but did work if you turned them upside down :)
Enjoy the 3D!
Edit : (a running summary of everything I find)
Can confirm that the SSG-PT2001XT/XC do not work with this projector.
TY-EW3D10 (battery non-rechargeable type) work with this projector
Thank you for the question and the answer!

Your welcome, and just a bit more updated information, I've tested the Samsung SSG-PT2001XT/XC and they do not work, I'll update the first answer with all the info I can get (I've looked everywhere and no one seems to have a definitive list of glasses vs projectors...).
I can also add the following to the list of glasses that work with the PT-AT6000/PT-AE8000
TY-EW3D10 (battery non-rechargeable type)
As detailed in Panasonics documentation
I have stopped collecting at 5 sets for the moment, definitely plenty and all sourced cheaply from ebay, if you enjoy the hunt that's the best place to go. There are a lot of generic ones you can go for, but I've not heard any reviewers praising them over the Panasonics (I'd like to try out the Sony ones some point, but only if they are very cheap).
ahh, so which ones did u go with? all of yours ew3d3s? i was gonna give these a shot:
and report back on them. it's funny because projectors aren't listed on there so I did some cross referencing and my old KDL-46HX800 is listed as a compatible TV... if that's the case, will my Sony 3D glasses from it work with my panny??
By the way, someone is selling "refurbished" PS3 3D glasses for less than $10. I almost pulled the trigger on them, but decided against it. (just checked again, looks like he sold out. Had them for $9.95 Prime).
Confirmed that they work great! Can't believe they're $13 and I was spending anywhere from $40 to $120 on Nvidia 3D Vision and DLP glasses a few years back!
Do you have any expreience with TY-ER3D5MA ? I tried to sync then by holding power button for 2 sec and looks like they just blink mulitple times and shut down...regardless trasnmitter strength..
