    For the low end ones...... Higher quality one's with rechargeable batteries start around $100.
    They have bluetooth built in, they have to communicate to the tv so the tv can synch with the glasses about which shutter is open/closed on the glasses.

    Also my brand new 43" Samsung 3d Plasma tv... didn't even come with glasses :(
  5. Panasonic Plasma still provides the best picture quality / deepest blacks on the market (outside of Pioneer Kuro). 3D is a gimmick until you won't have to wear glasses. I can't even imagine how poor people with glasses have to put on another set of glasses. Currently there is also a large price premium for 3D features alone. I'd much rather purchase a 60-65 inch 2D television rather than get a 50 inch 3D TV. My current Panasonic 42 inch is still going strong since 2006 and I'll probably keep it for another 4-5 years before TVs move to AMOLED or other superior technologies than backlit LED.
