I was wondering about a few things.I've looked at the Samsung and Panasonic 3D TV's at the store and watched 3D movies.I noticed the glasses are like wearing sun glasses..a dark Lens. For example can the Panasonic glasses be adjusted to make the picture brighter when viewing through them? If not,why do they make these glasses so dark?:eyecrazy

It is the design. They are Liquid Crystal Active Shutter Glasses. They actually block less light then do the $1 3D glasses they hand out at a 3D theaters.

LC ASGs have been around for 25 years.

A Panasonic rep just told me that the brighter the room your watching the tv in ,then the brighter the picture on the screen.How bright? I don't know.
The other thing is the battery that goes into the 3D Glasses.You can't buy it through Panasonic,it can be bought at a store that sells the battery.Ofcourse the glasses come with the battery already in them.The battery is the size of a very small circle,just like what you'd put in a wrist watch.I don't know what type of battery it is and that information will probably come with the instructions for the glasses.

I don't know the longevity of the battery and I'm surprised that they don't sell a charger for it.
The glasses can also be used as sun glasses outside he said.

Also the rep told me this Panasonic TV model TC-P54VT25 is 600hz..its only 600hz when its in Cinema Mode.He did'nt know how many Hz when in other tv modes.

600hz is the speed of the subfield drive of the plasma panel. I believe, like resolution, it is intrinsic to the display and does not change.

There is nothing he told you that is truthful. 3D like 2D is best watched in a darken room with strict lighting control.

You can buy the battery anywheres. It is a CR Coin style Lithum battery. They cost about 40 cents each and last for about 70 hours of usage.

You CAN NOT use 3D glasses as sunglasses :rolleyes: It specifically says that in the manual.

600Hz is the subfield drive. the actaul refresh rate of their 3DTVs is 120Hz.

You sure you talked to a Panasonic rep? It sure doesn't sound like it.
