Samsung SSG-5100GB/XC Active Shutter 3D Glasses (New for 2013) £12.50 for one set @ Amazon

Cheapest I have seen so far. I have been hunting around for 3D glasses for my new Samsung UE46F6320 TV. Two SSG-5100GB came with my TV but I need two more. I think they can be used on other Panna and LG TV as well.

I heard they work better in rooms which are not well lit, but I think they are really good for the price and the batteries also last quite long.

If anyone has any better deal please let me know.

I am adding the list of TVs which will work with these glasses here. Please feel free to edit/add.
1) Samsung UE46F6320
2) Panasonic TX-P55ST50B
3) Panasonic ST50
4) F8000
5) Epson EH-TW5200 3d projector
6) UE6740
7) Panasonic TX-P50GT60

I guess a return to Amazon is always possible if it's not a pair.

but can't a "pair of glasses" mean one.

Where does it say a "pair of glasses"? This can't mean one...

BTW these worked with my panny 50gt50 and should work with all newer models if that helps anyone

In the product description, but I am sure its just one. Still an ok price.

I dont think this is the twin pack, as it usually states it.

Good price for even 1 pair and I do believe it is for just 1 pair as in 1 set, not two. Can't see where it says 2 pairs. If it really was 2 pairs (2 sets) then that would be a fantastic deal.

I guess the pair comes under the same rule as glasses.

Follow link for explanation.

I still think this is a good price for 1 pair. Used to be around £14 a pair.

Thanks, that does actually help me! Been putting off buying 3d Glasses for a while now.

Are these rechargeable? Or does it need a fresh pair of batteries each time the juice runs out? Also what type of batteries do they take?

I think so. I have read somewhere that they work on LG plasma TVs with active 3D, check out the Q&A on the Amazon web link for the glasses. Also check out the review

I found this video. Does it offer the same value?

They will need battery but I have been told they last long. They take coin batteries and are quite cheap to buy.

The rechargeable ones are heavier/less comfy and more expensive.

will this work for sony w9 series active 3d tv?

One pair is only one pair of glasses suitable for one person

I have read in one of the comments that it might do as they all use 100Hz technology. (Projectors work at 144Hz which is different and hence won't work)

I think you can also check on Sony forum or post a question on Amazon. Some people are quite helpful there. Or you can also order and check if it works. If it doesn't you can always return them I think, may be don't remove the film on the glass to keep it in unused condition.

Can you post link from a UK seller?

these sunglasses are in fashion today, great protection from the sun also

Anyone know if these would work with a 3D monitor? BenQ XL2411T with Nvidia 3D Vision 2.

awesome glasses i already have 2 pair but the battery doesn't last long at all, unless you do what i do and leave the battery hatch open when not using them

think i paid £2-£3 for 50 batteries on ebay
Edited by: "shikztheurbanlegend" 29th May 2014

I've had 2 3D Tvs (both Samsung - ES8000 at the moment) over the last 3-4 years and think ive only ever used the 3d function once or twice.

Great price, but hardly worth buying them

HEAT added anyway.

What is the diffrence between 'Active' & 'Passive' glasses?

This is not the place for this kind of question... especially when you can copy and paste that into google!

BTW Heat added as these tend to be much pricier... need to check if they work on the new Sony W8 50".

Maybe you have different ones? The battery hatch on these has no electrical contacts, so opening it doesn't make a difference; they continue to operate with it open, unless you also pop the battery out. They do have an on/off switch too; mine last ages on a single battery (specification is something like 20 hours). Just a thought, but perhaps it's your bargain batteries that don't have as much as longevity as some other brands.

I have a Sony KDL-46HX823, going to take a chance and order these, the Sony ones I have are so uncomfortable, thanks op.

It says the battery last 40 hours in the description. But I read comments that they last upto 100hours. Even 20hours is like 20-25 movies which is not bad. I don't think there are that many 3D movies around but there will be more in the future.

The sheer stupidity of certain people on here is staggering... you have somehow worked out how to access the internet and post a comment but you don't understand what "a pair of glasses" or "a pair of jeans" is ???

Anyway, does anyone (who doesn't fit into the above category) know if these will work with an Optoma HD131XE ?

This is a projector. I think the projectors work at 144Hz. These glasses are for TV which work on 100Hz shutter rate. Please double check this on the internet, don't take my word for it.

I think I have seen the 144Hz on eBay which work with projectors.

This is a Chinese supplier but you should able to find UK ones.

You can still order the ones I have posted and return it if it doesn't work.

Thanks for the reply! I've just done a quick bit of research and my HD131XE projector seems to run on "120Hz DLP®- Link" so these glasses won't work for me. Shame - I would much rather glasses from Samsung than dodgy chinese ones (at this price).
