5.0 out of 5 stars Great replacement for Panasonic OEMs, January 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xpand 3D IR 3d Glasses single 1 pack (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought these with a pair of the Panasonic 3rd Gens for comparison, and I sent the Panasonic glasses back. These fit much more comfortably over my glasses, and as other have noted, the temples keep out much more light and reduce reflections within the glasses. The brightness between the two is similar, and there's not much of an advantage in the OEMs for picture quality. The biggest difference I've noticed is that the Panny glasses are a bit less "amber" in tint, while these have a stronger tint to them. My TCP55ST30 was set to the Warm2 color setting, and with the Pannys it worked well. After switching to Warm1 to dumb the red colors down a bit, the Xpand's looked just as good. I've run through 2 batteries with these glasses, and I haven't noticed a cost issue since you can snag a 6 pack of batteries for about 3 bucks. With each battery helping me go about 90 hours in practice, I don't replace them too often (that's 3 hours of 3D a day for a month straight, and I don't know many people who are that hardcore). Also, I rather like the battery option because I rarely have to take a break from afternoon gaming or movie watching sessions to charge. Rechargeablility is a personal preference, though, and I think the Xpand's excel in comfort enough to come out ahead in any case. If you're looking for glasses with your TV, grab a pair of these and your respective OEMs and compare them for yourself. I think you'll be satisfied (although I do know of some issues with the newer Samsung TVs because they're so bright - but Xpand has noted this on their website, so do your research before getting these). For Panasonic owners, this is a great option.

Hi B. Reeser,

I have the same tv, just got it jan 2012. I did the whole slides thing for 100 hrs and now using the DNice settings. The picture is awesome but I read on the HD forums that panasonic isn't gonna make the 2011 model compatible glasses anymore. I am thinking about returning the tv and wait for the 2012 models to come down in price. After reading you review I may not return it. Did the panasonic glasses had any advantages over these glasses at all? Now that you have used them for a while do you anything else to say about these glasses? Your answer will help me a lot in deciding wheather to return the tv or not.

Thanks,
