Let me break this down: There are two types of anaglyph glasses you can buy: The cardboard ones with the flimsy gel lense, and acrylic (plastic) lensed glasses. Both of these types you can buy in whatever colors you want or that suit you, but primarily, they are gel lenses or acrylic lenses.
Gel lenses work *the best* in terms of eliminating the most ghosting and crosstalk, but at the expense of seeing significantly more red/cyan and duller true-color. That's because they're just so powerful at filtering. Too powerful, really.
Of the acrylic lensed products that I have tried, I pitted the three best reviewed acrylic lensed glasses against each other personally for 3D anaglyph gaming (Nvidia's 3D Discover if you're wondering) on an LCD monitor. The glasses tried, myself, were the Proview (original and from 3D Glasses Direct), ProX (newer type of Proview glasses; sleeker style and also from 3D Glasses Direct), and the Pro-Ana from 3DStereo (same style as the ProX as is pictured on this product page up above).
For an LCD monitor, the worst was easily the Proview glasses. They had a ton of ghosting and the injection molding process for color just hadn't been up to par when they were first introduced and still aren't. The gel lensed, cardboard glasses just blow these out of the water. Only buy the Proview glasses from 3D Glasses Direct if you plan on watching movies or playing on older CRT monitors (if you don't know what a CRT monitor is, then pick up your monitor. Are you struggling? Is it 30 pounds? Is it an old, giant cube? It's a CRT monitor -- get an LCD monitor immediately! They're practical now.).Read more ›
Here are the problems:
1. The "wrap-around" style defeats the purpose of the glasses. Ideally, the lenses should be on a flat plane, parallel to the video screen. With these you are looking through the colored lenses at about a 35 degree angle. This introduces optical distortions as well as color density anomalies. In addition, since most prescription eyeglasses are on a flat plane, it's hard to fit the Pro-X glasses over your prescription specs (try putting your prescription glasses over the Pro-X; it works better).
2. The frames of these glasses are made of a brittle plastic that breaks easily. This is a problem because the frames flex in the center every time you put them on or take them off. This repeated flexing will eventually cause the frames to snap in half. Also, the frame hinges are molded into the plastic, held together with a tiny screw (this is not really a problem, because the frames will break long before the hinges fail).
My first pair of Pro-X 3D glasses broke after wearing them for about an hour. 3D Glasses Direct replaced them instantly with profuse apologies. The replacement pair lasted two days until they also broke in half. This time I asked 3D Glasses Direct to replace them with the "Clip-on" style 3D glasses. They agreed, and for this I give them five stars and high praise.
The clip-on lenses are the "flip-up" type that baseball outfielders wear. The lenses are in a flat plane and they work well with my wire rims as well as with my thicker plastic frames. This is clearly the superior solution.
If you don't wear prescription glasses, get a pair of cheap sunglasses, remove the lenses and use the clip-on. You will be happier in the long run.
