3d samsung tv and glasses, need help
 
So im going to go out and buy a samsung 3d tv on boxing day. Its a VERY cheap one, normally $1199 but its on for $699 for boxing day. Its a 50" plasma, only 720p but nothing i watch is really 1080p anyways, and it plays video from usb which i can make use of, the 3d is really just an added bonus.

My issue is the fact that it doesnt come with glasses, and the glasses at best buy are 149.99, but there is a kit which is on sale for 199.99 that includes 2 pairs of glasses and a 3d bluray. Im just wondering if anyone here has any information on if these glasses support this tv since the manual doesnt list it, but the pack may have come out after the tv manual.

Tv: Samsung 50" 720p 600Hz 3D Plasma HDTV (PN50C490) : 3D TVs - Best Buy Canada

Glasses kit: Samsung 3D Kit-3D Glasses And Movie (SSG-P2100T/ZA) : 3D TV Accessories - Best Buy Canada

Also if anyone has a better suggestion for a tv under $900 that will be a much better choice that would be great too, but the 3d seems like something i might use.

Edit: Looks like FS and BB have been selling it in a bundle for a deal for a awhile now according to this http://forums.redflagdeals.com/samsu...249-bb-944414/
Yet on samsungs own site it says the kit and the tv are not compatible with each other. Its probably a long shot but id love to know if anyone here happens to own the two to confirm its working before spending $1000.

a while ago best buy sold that same tv and glasses bundle together. unless they are majorly evil then yes those glasses are compatible.

Samsung has some of the worst ghosting I've ever seen on their 3D TVs. I regularly play PC games with 3D Vision so I thought I was used to the sensation but after watching 10 minutes of the Leafs versus Habs game, I was ready to hurl all over the floor. Panasonic and Sony the same issues.

In my opinion, 3DTVs are simply NOT ready for prime time and the current generation will likely turn people off big time. Novelty items and nothing more.

Was that a true 3d broadcast though or was it the 2d-3d conversion? From what ive heard the conversion isnt nearly as good and i can see it causing some ghosting since it has to convert everything on the fly.
Anyways i ended up getting to best buy at 2am, got in store at 6am to find out my location had none of them in stock because it was too small so i picked it up in store on wednesday.

I waited to get the glasses which i had to order off of futureshops website for $50 more, but does anyone know how futureshops tracking system works? Its telling me the estimated arrival date is Jan 1st-Jan 4th, but there is no actually tracking info available so i dont know if thats when it will arrive for them to ship.
