Product Details

Samsung 3D Active Shutter Glasses - SSG2100AB

Communicating wirelessly with your 3D-capable Samsung HDTV, SSG-2100AB Active Shutter glasses lighten and darken their liquid-crystal lenses hundreds of times per second in perfect coordination with the 3D content showing on the HDTV screen, allowing you to experience an incredibly vivid, lifelike, and of course, three-dimensional movie night at home. Compatible with all 3D-capable Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and HTIBs, the battery-powered SSG-2100AB glasses are sized to fit most adults.

Let 3D Go To Your Head

Okay, so you've got the new 3D HDTV, and the 3D Blu-ray Disc player, and a new 3D Blu-ray movie. So, you're ready to plop down on the couch and enjoy some three-dimensional viewing right in the comfort of your own living room, right? Well, almost. While 3D-capable HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and Blu-ray movies are all necessary for bringing the 3D experience home, there's still one more piece to the puzzle — 3D glasses. You see, in order to create a three-dimensional visual effect, 3D HDTVs must work in concert with a pair of active shutter glasses (details on how all this works below). Because the SSG-2100AB 3D Active Shutter glasses communicate wirelessly with the 3D emitter built into all 3D-capable Samsung HDTVs, all you have to do is don a pair of these groovy shades, nestle into a comfy spot, press PLAY, and brace yourself for a truly immersive home theater experience. (Note: the SSG-2100AB glasses are sized for use by adults and require separate batteries for use.)

Three Cheers For 3D

Samsung's 3D technology uses the same principles upon which human sight is based to achieve a 3D effect in the home theater. By themselves, each human eye sees only two dimensions. However, because our eyes are set slightly apart, each sees an object or scene from a slightly different angle. And when the brain processes the images seen by each eye into a single image, we are able to perceive depth in what we are seeing. Add depth to the height and width (2D) seen by each single eye, and ta-da: 3D! For its part, a Samsung 3D HDTV actually shows two different versions of a movie on the screen at the same time (alternating frames from each at extremely high speeds). What makes the two versions different is that they were filmed from slightly different angles. Now, 3D Active Glasses communicate wirelessly with the 3D HDTV. Using special liquid-crystal lenses, the 3D glasses alternately block out the left or right lens in coordination with the frames flashing on-screen. Accordingly, the right eye sees only the "version" of the movie intended for the right eye, and the left eye only sees its version. Just as with normal human sight, the brain combines the two versions into one, and voilà, you see 3D. Three cheers!

These 3D glasses are great, particularly comfortable. I am normally uncomfortable wearing glasses but these are light weight and work great at night for 3D viewing, and turning them on is easy & you know when they are off as the light flashes 3 times then powers off. Samsung has a great product line & i am happy with my products.

3D quality is great when it worked. but the problem is, it is very fragile and expensive, two of my glass broke as it darkened on one of the lens in each glass. we took great care but still it happened. the build design is not good. or worth Samsung has to answer for this for old customers. Not sure how to purchase samsung products in future.

Didn't really care for these

By bbizarre

from Las Vegas

Comments about Samsung 3D Active Shutter Glasses:

I don't really care for there bulk and the difficulty I found in charging them and syncing them. The lenses aren't big enough and I find myself having to look only a certain way to keep the entire picture in the lens.

            Comments about Samsung 3D Active Shutter Glasses:

            I purchased this product in a bundle pack with movies and it was worth every dollar. The glasses run on CR2025 batteries. They're inexpensive and I swap out old batteries every 6 months to ensure there's no issues. The lenses are easy to clean and I haven't had any issues with them. I've compaired them to the re-chargable glasses that came with my TV and there's no difference. Beautiful 3D picture! I've had them over 2 years and they're still going strong. I'd definitely recommend these glasses for extra sets when you're having large 3D viewings. They've meet all expectations and I couldn't be happier that they've lasted after hearing other brands going out after 6 months to a year of use. Great Job Samsung!

              These glasses were more expensive than other Samsung 3D glasses out there, but I feel they have a better fit. Sturdy, great 3D effects, and easy to operate.

                      The tv is phenominal but the glasses are just an embarrasment with the technology provided by Samsung. They are big and chunky and break with ease.

                          3D!!! Whether its actual blu-ray 3D content, DVD converted to 3D, or your regular tv show, you won't be dissapointed. PROS - lightweight, long batttery, and come with a softcase. 3D is the frosting on your cake if you have a 3D tv and blu-ray player. CONS - 3D will not work with Smart TV apps. Glasses hurt after several hours, which earns it 3 stars in design. Batteries are not rechargeable. Initial cost of the glasses was high, which is what led me to give the value 3 stars.

                            Once you figure out how to turn them on, you're good to go. They work well, and fit over glasses, if necessary.
