I was wondering if anyone has moved to aftermarket RF controlled glasses. After a year of stubborn 3D avoidance, I got my system 3D capable, spent a little time watching a 3D movie and was shocked at just how immersive it was. My HE lens however, is in the way of the internal IR emitter that bounces the IR off my screen and I constantly loose sync. It's irritating at best. I figured I'd try some of the aftermarket RF glasses. There are many to choose from, and they are kinda spendy...

I've been using these Michael, the family seems to like them and for the price I can't complain.

I'd try these, if only they folded up for storage. I need to buy a few more, currently only have 2. But I like the storage cases that I can get for the Panasonic glasses.

I am going to try a pair from Oakley, pricey but you get what you pay for.

Hey those Oakley's look pretty sweet... Not horribly expensive either. I don't see where they are IR or RF though. I have no idea what "Real D" is..

Thanks for the tip Michael, I'll give those a closer look.

The glasses I have been looking at are the Monster Visions, and only because they get a fair amount of praise. But MV stopped making them, and apparently, they have a large batch of out there with serious battery problems.

I think the glasses that 3D VIP sells are the same as the MV. I may give them a try. http://www.3d-vip.com

You get to pay for the brand name and something that looks cool...

First off, you need to verify compatibility, there are some glasses that don't work with all systems. I guess you could always return if they don't...

Also, in my avoidance of 3D, I still checked into it and people were saying that the most popular glasses for being able to work and work well with a multitude of systems, were frequently on sale with 1 pair of glasses AND an emitter for $50-$70. I believe that they were the MonsterMax one.

FAR from stylish like the Oakleys, and maybe something else is better for just as good of a price now since I haven't looked into this in about 9 months, but shoot... I can buy JVC glasses to go with my JVC projector (what you would THINK would be a perfect match) for $150 each, and they historically won't perform as well as the MonsterMax 3rd party ones.

The Oakley's are not a shutter glasses. I don't even know if they'd work AT ALL for displays like mine where shutter glasses are supplied.

We watched John Carter 3D last night. Pretty damn cool. No stupid stick in the eye gimmicks, just great depth of field.

AH. I assumed that they were shutter since the OP was looking for 3D RF glasses. So they are really expensive polarized glasses then. The $3 ones you get at movie theaters, whilst ugly, do the same as the $150 Oakleys. The Oakley's look better, and might even be more comfortable though.

Just sayin'.

Its your money. smile

I'm pretty sure they are better than that Nick,

Just got man e-mail back from Oakley and they said the Gascans are fully compatible with my 2012 Panasonic 3D tv. Whoohoo
