^ Hey, that's awesome that you got the 120Hz problem sorted out.

Yeah, I have the same ghosting issue in 3D. I also believe it's the cheap glasses since it seems when can see through one lens the other lens should be opaque. It seems to me that the lenses are not getting dark enough to block the other eye from seeing.

I have not tried any other glasses so I cannot confirm my suspicion. I did try the newer Samsung rechargeable wireless glasses SSG-3550, but it seemed they would not charge from a regular USB port. It looked like they would only charge from the USB port on a Samsung TV, so I never got the chance to test them. I just returned them when I couldn't get them to charge.

I did read another review from a guy who said he got those glasses to work, and that they were way better than the ones t hat came with the monitor, but he didn't say how he got them to charge. Who knows, maybe the ones I bought were defective.

If you find a pair that work better, be sure to let us know.

I just stopped by best buy today and grabbed a set of SSG-5100GB glasses. They have the 4100/5100 on sale for $19 USD on their site. Brought it home and at first, it didn't seem to get any better. Didn't seem 3D but the crosstalk was a little better. Then I realized, the images were swapped. Changed that setting and bingo, 3D and less crosstalk. I'd say these new glasses are 75% better than the 3050s. Not perfect, but better and for a few bucks, worth it. Still might get the Xpand 104s from BB to compare. Its nice to be able to have a store to return the goods too if they don't work any better than what you've got.

^ That's good to hear. Unfortunately, that model of glasses is not available at BB or FS in Canada. However, I hit Amazon and ordered a pair of Xpand Universals for $18.99 cdn. That's dirt cheap.

TV manufacturers should be pretty embarrassed if they work better than the OEM glasses. I'll post here when I test them.

I hope they work well for you. I like the looks of those a lot better and the fact they block out the sides. Which model did you get? At that price, I'm guessing the x103s. Looks like the lenses are bigger too. When you test them, can you also note if you are able to look under the frames to see the keyboard still?

^ Yep, the 3DGX103.

Man, I have been checking out the Oculus Rift over the last few days, and it looks really impressive. If they get these things working nicely at a good price, I might just stop using a monitor for gaming.

Sony is also coming out with a VR headset for the PS4, so it looks like VR could finally be something to consider seriously for gaming on both consoles and the PC.

They have just released the second version of the developer's kit for the Oculus after having sold out of the 50K units they made for the first version. I hope they start mass producing them and selling to consumers soon. I'm really chomping at the bit to try one.

I've had the S27A950D for a while now. Everything works pretty well except for the DisplayPort crapping out once in a while, and the glasses that came with it, SSG-M3750CR, seemed liked they cause a lot of ghosting/crosstalk and only worked well when I tilted my head, so I know something is off.

Are these the glasses that came with yours? Do they cause some crosstalk?

On another forum, [ http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1037630283&postcount=421 ], another user stated that Samsung may have packed in the wrong model of 3d glasses with the unit. What he mentions sounds a lot like what I was experiencing, so it sounds like I need to get a different pair.

On amazon I noticed these, [ http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006YWCQLO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A29JDB041N6Y93 ]

I was wondering if any one had tried them successfully with their displays? They mention that they work with the TV models, but I am afraid of them not working with S27A950D. They seem to be the only "universal" Samsung/Bluetooth active glasses I can find.

If not, I might just go for the original SSG-M3150GB like the other person mentioned. They can be found on AliExpress, [ http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-Genuine-Samsung-3D-Glasses-SSG-M3150GB-for-PC-monitor-battery-powered/1274106675.html ], but they are non-rechargeable battery operated.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Dethw1sh, welcome to OC.net

Thanks for the insight on the polarization and testing with the head tilt. I didn't realize just how much darker the newer ones I bought made things when they are level vs tilted. So gave the ones that came with my used monitor (so not sure they are the ones that came with the original purchase) another try. I think I can deal with the crosstalk in exchange for a brighter screen. Another interesting observation, I only see the crosstalk in my right eye. I think it will just get mentally blocked out since I'm left eye dominant anyway. So plans are take back the SSG-5100GB and save some money or get a recommendation of some glasses that truly work on all fronts.

Here are the glasses that came with my monitor. A touch more crosstalk, but much brighter.

The model number of the glasses I got with my monitor is SSG-M3050GB. They seem to suck as well.

Thanks skora and Mergatroid. I've browsed overclock a few times in the past and figured I should finally make an account here.

I just switched to PC gaming completely last year. The announcement of the Xbox One and PS4 did not really excite me as a gamer, so I figured I would build a badass gaming rig.

Ok I went ahead and ordered the SSG-M3150GB. They will probably take a month or so to get here. I will report back on how well they work when I get them in. If they suck, last hope is to get the ones from amazon.

I just can't believe Samsung could screw up something that bad on such a great looking monitor.

I had a 61" samsung DLP that I used to game on in 3D... and I can tell you that when 3D is set up properly, it's hard to go back to normal gaming.
post #1620 of 1741
^ Great. I can't wait for the ones I ordered to show up. I have not gotten my expectations too high because honestly I'm not expecting a big improvement from a $19 set of glasses, but for that price I was willing to give them a try.
