    just got off the phone with chris and had a very productive little chat, the lads at TPS are busy putting all those lovely calibrated sets back in there usual positions. gutted i missed it. but since i went to the manchester one. all was not lost.

    I think id go with a VT65" calibrated, after considering all the variables, with lumagins ST combo's.

    i shall wait and see. but watch this space.:D

    You know and I know that there will be no firmware update for this problem I said months a go that we would be still be talking about this even when the new models are released.I could be wrong but I doubt it

    spoke to Craig earlier and have ordered a 55" St50,comes with 4 pairs of 3d3 glasses as part of the on the day deal,plus can redeem 2 pairs of panny glasses as well.so happy days.

    did arrive at the meet with my mind made up on the 50" St50,but then the Gt50 50" was only 200 more,so was thinking about that,then for just a bit more i could get a 55" St50 so opted for that.although i do miss out on the extra calibration options,but guess i can live with that.

    the Vt50 does come into its own against the St50 when more light is let into the room,and the Vt50 clearly showed more detail while the St50 looked a bit washed out.i usually keep the curtains closed so Thats alright for me.

    Panny glasses are adequate but the 3D3 glasses are better. Image brighter, better colour representation, more black detail.

    At this meet we watched some of Avatar, Toy Story 3 and Titanic in 3D and they looked as good as they do in 2D.

    Plus i think they look better and are more comfortable.

    A111 infra red & Bluetooth = £49.99
    A112 Bluetoth = £39.99

    Panasonic = £40+
    OEM = £25+
    Samsung = 2x £35

    Panasonic ones can be had for about £40 a pair and are alright but No best imo.

    Some Samsung glasses can be used and are suppose to be alright and are cheap enough you can get 2 pairs for £35 but dunno if right ones but gives a price comparison.

    Other manufacturer ones can be had for about £25 and might be alright but i wont promise anything. Physically may be similar but wont have as good firmware running them.

    I would happily pay the £10 over the Panasonics for the improvement I see.

    When using the supplied Panasonic 3D glasses to watch 3D flims, I have always been on the receiving end of a blinding headache after 30mins.

    Well I tried the 3D3 glasses from TPS, yesterday. I was able to sit through Avengers Assembled and in the evening Avatar without a hint of distress to my eyes and brainbox.

    I also increased the contrast and brightness settings by one increment to compensate for the slight darkening of the image by the lenses in the glasses.

    So a big :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: for the glasses and I will be ordering some more.

    can not wait to try mine out delboy, i wondered how does the firmware in the glasses stay in the memory if the battery runs out? Will the firmware in the 3d3 glasses need updating again if the battery fails inside?

    The 3D3 glasses are rechargeable. The firmware is stored in flash memory so no need to worry there!

    The scene in the jungle where the big black cat things are after him and hes legging it with the torch looks amazing! More depth as there is more detail seen with the 3d3 vs the.pannys.
