I highly recommend that you use the glasses that came with the TV [In reply to] Can't Post

They're active shutter glasses (the batteries are included with the glasses) and are made to sync with your TV. We also have a Samsung 3D TV and we've successfully used the Samsung glasses that came with the TV for months (you really *must* use those 3D glasses - it's amazing)! Laugh We also (after extensive research) purchased extras for when we have company, and the Samsung glasses are consistently the cheapest out there (currently $19.99 per pair, plus free shipping, on Amazon). They seem to be the standard as they also work on other brand TVs.

You'll have to sync the glasses with the TV, but it only takes a minute or two. You then put in your 3D DVD (as you said, you'll also need a 3D BlueRay player which, for general information, are very reasonable now - we bought a Sony for $90 on Amazon and it will play 2D, and pretty much anything else), turn the TV to 3D mode, turn on the 3D glasses using the small button at the top, and away you go! You can also watch a 2D movie or TV show in 'fake 3D' which isn't as good as shows meant for 3D, but can still be entertaining.

Good luck and enjoy! Smile
