Say it ain't so! (No more 3D glasses for C series)

I finally got around to getting some glasses for my C7000 and I can't find them? Is it true Samsung changed the glasses for the D series TVs?

Yes it's True (But don't Panic)

Yes it is true the glasses have been changed to the faster response time of the Bluetooth System. But the older active glasses, are still widely available on the INTERNET and television Dealers. and will be for quite sometime to come...

I decided to panic

The glasses should be $70, but all I could find online were used for $90 or $130 new.

I decided not to shell out $500 for four pair, and just went and bought the LG tv that uses the 3d theater glasses.

I'll be honest in that I think the Samsung C7000 had slightly better picture, but I love the 3d on the LG, and I really like not having to worry about batteries or breaking the glasses. After using the theater glasses at home, I wonder if there will even be any active shutter TVs in 5 years.
