I picked these as the fourth place out of 5 different glasses I bought for my new LG 4k OLED 3D TV. Ok to buy if you just need to save money and want something better then movie theater glasses. (details below)

Background: I have enjoyed 3D for years and always used a 1080p projector with active glasses(heavy and battery powered) Passive was not as good at home until 4k TV's came out. Now you get better resolution using lighter glasses with better color rendering, clarity, and contrast. Problem is... most everyone has used those cheap flimsy glasses and I wanted to find the best available. I am some what of a perfectionist and also had a recent brain injury that makes me hyper sensitive to many things. I can't stand glasses that have lens glare, ghosting, and any discomfort in fit. I decided after all my pickiness at deciding I might as well share all my data :-)

Below I compared the top 5 glasses that I bought after researching what is currently available. I compared the following elements which I then gave individual ratings (1-5).

*Lens Glare - the amount of noticeable glare on the back side of the lens. I tested in medium room lighting and then in total darkness with only the light from the screen (2 scores, room lighting / no lighting). I tested using the films 'Gravity' and 'Flight of the Butterflies' in 3D. The black starry space scenes of Gravity were excellent to test for lens glare and also ghosting.

*Ghosting or Cross talk - this happens when the polarized lenses do not completely block the opposite eye. You see a ghost image of the other eye and it can be distracting!

*Contrast and Color - I saw some differences in the depth of contrast and slight hue changes between the glasses.

*Comfort - needs no explanation :-)

*Durability/Build Quality - these were better glasses then movie theater for sure but still the best only compared to $30 sunglasses.

The price is right, and the glasses do the job. I've now had them for over a year, and they show no sign of damage. They are very light, and fit like a regular pair of sun glasses. You can definitely wear them for lengthy movies like The Hobbit, and not be in discomfort. They work perfectly with my Vizio 3D TV. You would not be able to tell the difference between these glasses, and the ones that come with the TV. Definitely buy these if you're looking to add more 3D glasses to your home entertainment system.

I think I like these better than the ones that came with my LG TV. Very comfortable even over regular eyeglasses. The frames are quite sturdy for kid use. Just keep a microfiber towel around for easy lens cleaning. With this four pack, and the two that came with the TV, there is plenty for everyone to have a pair and enjoy some 3D TV.

These glasses were used in conjunction with a 2015 LG 3D television. The quality of the glasses was equal to that of LG's own product. The frames are a bit thicker than the LG version but felt to be the right size and weight. They are heavier than the LG offerings and feel more substantial than LG's. The lenses are smaller than LG and a better fit than the LG version for young children. My elementary aged son felt more comfortable with these glasses then he did with the official LG model.

As for the image quality, through careful comparison of these against the LG models - there was no discernible difference in image quality between the LG and this product. If anything, the LG glasses seemed less uniform in their surface appearance. That is, the LG glasses had a visible 'wave' when looked at them from the side while these glasses appeared more consistent and uniform. If I were to speculate, I would guess that the lenses themselves are slightly thicker than the LG model.

All-in-all these are excellent glasses and well worth the low cost when compared to the official LG model.

These are actually the best, sturdiest 3D glasses I've come across. I'm not sure if the lenses are actually thicker but they're curved. This makes the lens more rigid for cleaning and everyday use. These have lasted longer than any others I've purchased. Recommended.

These eDimensional passive 3D Glasses work perfectly with our LG 55EF9500 OLED TV; comfortable and lightweight. Each pair came sealed in OEM/branded plastic (packaged in a sturdy cardboard box) = No transit damage. Would definitely recommend!

Good, inexpensive glasses. I have to wear these over my regular eyeglasses. They are not quite as roomy as those that came with the TV set but work just fine.

I'm so glad I purchased an LG OLED TV which uses passive glasses. I bought these at Best Buy for less than the cost of a BATTERY for Active glasses. There's absolutely no reason to pay any more for name brand glasses. They are all the same.

I found these didn't fit well over my glasses, but they seem good apart from that. My wife (who wears contacts) said they work better than the glasses we received with our LG tv. They seems pretty robust in build quality, I just wish they were a bit larger.

These were great, but then I found out that I could use all those free 3D glasses we get from the movie theaters. Now I feel stupid for buying these.
