    Sony TDG-BT500A/US reviews

    Active 3D Glasses is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised How can you argue against something that works as advertised? The glasses would be better coming with instructions, but I found some on the web for my TV. Once paired, they work like a charm. I've used them for all six 3D movies so far (that I own a 3D disc) and haven't lost signal or sync. They did take a bit of getting used to for someone who does not wear glasses, but my wife finds them just fine taking the nose piece out for a fit over her glasses. They're not heavy though, so happy with that. I can't find much to complain about here at all. Well, they're not what I would call attractive, but who's judging in the dark- just watch the movie! :-) So if that's the worst I can come up with, that's pretty good for the product. Service was slick and fair from BH so mucho Kudo's and no complaints there either. All around I would say I have had a great customer experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glasses Work! I have a Sony XBR65X850C and these were the glasses recommended (User Manual) for this TV. The glasses work nicely, first time syncing was a little tricky. Once the glasses were synced they stayed synced and worked great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have the new Sony Bravia 50'' 3D and if you have the same one I will recommend to buy the Originals 3D glasses as the manual says, like this one. Great quality and it works perfect, once you turn on the glasses the TV automatic detect the 3D glasses. This is my second one and I have to tell B&H have a great price for this item. Thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony Active 3D Glasses I received my Sony 3D Glasses within a reasonable time frame and I didn't waste time making the connection with my Sony TV, although it took me a few tries before I totally understood the correct steps for making the connection. Afterwards, WOW!!! Sony 3D tv, Sony 3D Blu-ray dvd player and now Sony 3D Glasses. WOW the 3D viewing is totally amazing!!! I would definitely recommend these Sony 3D Glasses to everyone and thank you Sony and thank you B&H for being so very reliable with all of my prior orders from you and please keep up the good work.
