Epson 3010/3010e compatible 3D glasses (M-3DI standard) – the big list

I decided to write this small article because it was very hard for me to find compatible glasses after I bought my new Epson 3010e 3D projector. Some of the glasses are hard to find in stock, so I’ll also try to keep an eye on where to find them and for the best prices.

A little bit of introduction might be necessary: Epson wisely designed their 2011 projector line to be compatible with the M-3Di standard for Active Shutter Glasses. The current companies actively producing or working toward compatible products are: Panasonic Corporation, XpanD 3D, Hitachi Consumer Electronics Co., Ltd., Changhong Electric Co., Ltd., FUNAI Electric Co., Ltd., Hisense Electric Co., Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Seiko Epson Corporation, SIM2 Multimedia S.p.A., ViewSonic Corporation.

Currently these are the glasses that have been reported to work with the 3010/3010e, 5010, etc Epson projectors, as well as with most of the new projectors and TV sets compatible with M-3Di standard (including all 2011+ Panasonic TVs)

Panasonic TY-EW3D2SW/TY-EW3d2MW/TY-EW3D2LW (small/medium/large) Panasonic 2nd generation

Panasonic TY-EW3D10U – reported as rather low quality, Panasonic 1st generation

Panasonic TY-EW3D3MPK2 3D Glasses Twin Pack – also Panasonic 3rd generation, might be cheaper as a pack – bought them myself and work really well

Blick 3D glasses containing 3D3 as Panasonic compatibility list  (Blick 3D small, Blick 3D large)

XPAND X104LX1 Active IR Full HD 3D Glasses – the newest XPAND generation, compatible with pretty much everything under the sun (or so they say) – X104 YOUniversal 3D glasses – capable of working with Infrared (IR), Bluetooth (BT) and Radio Frequency (RF) standards and apparently able to work with Apple iPhone™ and Google Android™ platforms.

Playstation 3 3D Glasses – work really well with Epson 3010/3010e. Amazon currently has them for $50-$60, way cheaper than other options.

I’ll try to keep the list updated with any new models that might be released in 2012.
