I don't know much about it but I have friends that are buying the Samsung 3D tv but not buying the Samsung Bluray player because they plan to use their Xbox because it plays 3D. And they know a LOT about this stuff.
I have heard you have to use the Samsung glasses to view the Samsung 3D tv. However, I just googled it and read that if you wear the Panasonic glasses upside down you can view the Samsung TV in 3D, and vice versa. They swear it's not just a myth... they said it's because they each used the reverse technology. Not sure I'd want to wear the glasses upside down though. Also, they say they both will most likely eventually come up with glasses that can be used with any 3D tv.
I was looking to purchase the Samsung UN55C8000 3D TV. I was wondering if there were any compatability issues if I bought a different brand of 3D Blu Ray player. For example, use a PS3 (once it receives its upgrade). Or do I need to have an exclusive Samsung 3d blu ray player to watch 3D movies on the Samsung C8000?
If I can use any 3D blu ray player, Do I need to buy the samsung shutter glasses or (ie) Sony shutter glasses. Are all active shutter glasses the same?
