    So glad that Panasonic and Samsung decided to join the Universal 3D geslsas consortium as it’s now possible to buy one pair of 3D geslsas that work with multiple brands of 3D TVs. We’ve tested these particular geslsas with a Panasonic 2012 ST50 model (TC-P55ST50) as well as a 2012 Samsung plasma and they synced immediately and worked well. They also work with 2011 Samsung TVs but they will *NOT* work with 2011 Panasonic TVs, nor the Panasonic 3D projector (PT-AE7000U) as these use the older Panasonic IR 3D geslsas.If you use these on a Panasonic TV, you may notice very subtle differences between these and the Panasonic 3D geslsas in terms of brightness and color saturation but I think most people would find these ones perfectly fine for 3D viewing. Considering the price difference (currently under $18 for these and a little over $50 for the least expensive Panasonic geslsas), I’d say load up on these and put them in a bowl on the coffee table for guests, but maybe stash a couple of the Panasonic geslsas in a drawer for more serious viewers.In terms of the form factor, these geslsas are super-light. They come in 3 pieces: the main unit that sits on your nose with lenses plus two detachable temples. Plug the temple pieces into the main lens piece, insert the battery, hit the power button on the bridge and you’re good to go. They should sync to the TV quickly as long as the TV is on and displaying 3D content.Batteries (CR-25 button cells) are available on Amazon for under $2 for 5 so I’d recommend buying 1 or 2 of these 5-packs and just stick em in a drawer. According to Samsung, the geslsas will last up to 70 hours (of active use) per battery, so you won’t need to replace the batteries often.All in all, a great product for an excellent price.
