DLP-Link 3D Glasses
Get the 3D theater experience at home with a 3D DLP® projector and these 3D glasses from Monoprice!
So far, Active Shutter 3D technology produces the best quality 3D images. However, it usually comes with a steep price when you factor in the cost of glasses for the whole family. Now you can enjoy the best quality 3D for the entire family with Monoprice DLP-Link 3D Glasses for 3D DLP projectors!
These glasses are intended for use with 3D ready DLP projectors. They use a single CR2032 battery cell (included), which will power the glasses for up to 70 hours of use!
Each pair comes with a storage pouch and cleaning cloth, to help keep the glasses in optimum condition at all times. They weigh only 1.7 ounces and feature a 1000:1 contrast ratio.

With my 1st projector Acer H5360 (720P) all you have to do is enable 3D on the computer and then select DLP-link option on the projector. This actually enables DLP glasses but at the same time the Nvidia glasses work as well so you can use both at the same time. Now this projector doesnt have native 3D but is 3D-ready which means your PC creates 3D and sends it to projector as frame-sequential option. So first your PC sends full left image then full right image at 120Hz which translates to 60hz per eye. So as long as you have a 120Hz DLP output display device you can use DLP-Link 3D glasses using Nvidia 3D emitter.
Now my 2nd projector Optoma HD33 has full 1080P 3D capability so this projector doesnt require the use of Nvidia or a PC for 3D but having Nvidia 3D emitter connected enables your computer to use 3DTV-play option so that you can send 3D stuff to the projector from either games or play full 1080P 3D from Blu-rays or videos. So all you do is play the 3D video file (Side by Side or Top-Botom split) and then select 3D on the projector instead of enabling it on the computer. However, you can still use your computer to convert 2D to 3D with software like PowerDVD and then send the output as frame-sequential which is what you do with 3D-ready projectors which have 120Hz refresh rate.
So don't be discouraged by that negative review because I promise you that as long as your projector is either 3D-ready (120hz) or full 3D capable and has DLP-link option the setup will work with Nvidia 3D.
Only negative is that full 3D projectors which convert (Side by Side or Up-Down) on their own you cant use the Nvidia 3D glasses at the same time as your DLP-link glasses.
So to summarize BUY these glasses without fear with your Nvidia 3D and know that you will be saving yourself tons of money plus you'll be able to use these glasses on any DLP setup even without a PC whereas Nvidia glasses work only with a PC and their emitter!!! So its a no brain-er.
Cheers my bothers and sisters!
PROS: Works with any 3D DLP-Link capable projector with or without PC.
DLP-Link is better choice than IR emitter option because you dont need line of site to the emitter. Your screen is the emitter! Also, if using Nvidia 3D emitter and IR glasses then non of your other remote controls will work because IR emitter blocks all the other IR remotes (since its constantly sending a signal) and its so annoying because I cant even raise or lower the volume without turning the emitter and therefore 3D off. lol So DLP-link doesn't have this problem.
CONS: The only downside to these glasses is that you can't recharge them using usb like you would Nvidia glasses. They have batteries which you have to replace and I am not sure what the cost is in the long run but, over 40 hours is at least 20 movies watched before changing batteries which is not bad at all.
Like many Monoprice item I would recommend this product to everyone!
PROS: Simple operation.
Nice carrying case.

PROS: Very good product
CONS: sometimes looses sync but better than most other models i have tried
Power button location is a little dodgy, Glasses keep switching off becasue power botton gets pressed with my glasses (i wear vision correction glasses)
CONS: Lack of rechargeable battery
Lack of status light, you dont know if they are On/Off unless you wear them
