this rating is not the manufacturers fault

I'm not a huge fan of 3D technology. It's cool, a nice little toy to play with, but not something I'd recommend. I bought a Panasonic 3D TV simply because of the bells and whistles that it had, not because it was 3D. I received some money for X-Mas and thought I'd splurge on these goggles.
They synch really easily with the TV. They recommend charging the glasses via USB to the TV which I don't understand. I'm sure you could plug them into your PC and charge them just fine, but if you use the TV to charge them, make sure the TV is on! Note: 1 charge takes about 30 min and will last up to 30 hours.
The other thing is that the goggles make the picture 2x darker than normal viewing. I normally watch regular TV with a lamp on, but with these goggles it's too dark. Make sure the room is DARK!
Lastly, if you wear glasses for regular vision, these will rest on the tip of your nose!
Pros: they are lightweight, synch very easy and are simple to operate.
Cons: Dark picture, charge via TV, overly expensive for casual use and bulky.
