Choosing the Best 3D Glasses for your 3D HDTV

In order to view active 3D on your HDTV you need a special pair of 3D glasses.  These active 3D glasses communicate with your 3D HDTV using radio, IR or other means to synchronize with the imagery on your TV.  The glasses alternately block the left and then the right lens. This occurs faster than the blink of an eye, so your eye will not notice it.

But when images are shown to each eye separately the effect achieves far more lifelike 3D.

There are many choices in active 3D glasses.  Below I will help you choose the best pair for you.
