5.0 out of 5 stars Works like a charm for less than half the price, 13 Jan. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Universal 3D Active Glasses Works With Toshiba, Samsung, Sony Sharp, Mitsubishi, Panasonic TV (Electronics)
I bought these to go with my Toshiba 40TL868 - they work like a charm and cost less than half the price of the Toshiba specs. They sometimes lose sync with the TV if I sit too far away (more than ~3 meters), but I expect the same would happen with all 3D specs. Battery life seems good so far, and they aren't too heavy or uncomfortable to wear.

I'd recommend you try to find out if your TV uses infra-red to sync with 3D glasses rather than bluetooth to avoid disappointment - it wasn't easy to find out for my TV, but I noticed a hint in the 'Troubleshooting 3D' section of the manual that mentioned making sure nothing was blocking the IR receiver.

hi Scott
I followed your advice and ordered four pairs of the 3D glasses but can't seem to make them charge up. Any ideas as our computer doesn't seem to recognise them.

hi just follow the instructions but we found that you had to be very close to the TV to pick up a signal and if you move too far away, the signal drops out. Good luck. You also need to be directly in front of the TV and not to the side.

I was a little puzzled the first time I tried to connect these to my TV too - I had to be quite close, and I absolutely had to point them at the TV as if I was watching it (I think the sensor on the glasses is on the bridge between the lenses, and the TV's sensor is next to the power LED).

After the first time I connected them, I have to say I've had no problems getting them to connect again. You do have to be looking at the TV (the same would be true of Toshiba's own glasses, I'm sure).

I sit around 2.5 meters away directly in front of my TV and they work well. I have used them my sofa at around a 45 degree angle and they worked fine there too (although I don't sit there often). When I leave the room, I'd say they stop working at 3-4 meters from the TV.

Sorry J. Blackham, I just saw your post. Did you ever get them to work properly? One thing I'd say is that they aren't great in daylight (the same is probably true for all active shutter glasses - I can see a constant flicker on the wall behind my TV and it's very annoying!).
