Sorta universal active-3D TV glasses compared

CNET compares three pairs of active-3D glasses that work with more than one brand of TV.

Panasonic TY-ER3D4MU ($55 each)
The Panasonic TY-ER3D4MUs are universal glasses compatible with the Full HD 3D standard and offer decent build quality and appreciably better picture quality than cheap glasses. Read the full review.


Xpand X104 YOUniversal ($90 each for large blue/black version with RF dongle)
For the narrow niche of viewers who need active 3D glasses that work with most 3D TVs regardless of brand, the Xpand YOUniversals are great. For everyone else, they're overkill. Read the full review.


Samsung SSG-4100GB ($19 each)
The Samsung SSG-4100GB universal glasses are cheap and fine for casual use, but an uncomfortable fit and too-open design mean 3D enthusiasts will want other primary glasses. Read the full review.
