These active shutter glasses work with 2011 LG active 3D-ready TVs. They communicate wirelessly with the TV via RF signals, a different approach than the infrared-based system found on 2010 models.

These glasses are compatible with LG's LZ9700-, LW9500-, and LW7700-series LED-LCD TVs, as well as PZ550-, PZ750-, and PZ950-series plasma TVs. They offer a one-size-fits-all design, and feature a built-in rechargeable battery. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Overview: The LG AG-S250 3D active glasses enable you to view 3D video and images on a 2011 3D-ready LG flat-panel TV. To experience LG's 3D technology, you need a 2011 LG 3D-ready flat-panel TV and these LG's 3D Active Shutter Glasses (AG-S250); along with an HDMI connected 3D source; such as a Blu-ray player or Satellite receiver (with 3D content). The result is a beautiful, full HD 1080p 3D experience that brings you closer to the action from the comfort of your home.

Note: In addition to the 3D active shutter glasses and compatible 2011 LG 3D-ready HDTV, you will also need an HDMI connected 3D source (such as a Blu-ray player or Satellite receiver), and 3D software content.

Compatible 3D-Ready LG TVs: The LG 3D active shutter glasses (AG-S250) are compatible with the following 2011 LG 3D-ready flat-panel televisions (as of April 2011).

  • Plasma TVs: PW350, PZ550, PZ750, PZ950 series
  • LED-LCD TVs: LW9500 series

Note: Not compatible with previous (2010-earlier) LG 3D-ready flat-panel televisions which transmitted 3D signals via IR.

RF (Radio Frequency)-Based: The LG wireless 3D glasses use RF (2.4GHz) wireless communication to view 3D images from your 2011 LG 3D-ready flat-panel television.

Shutter Glass Technology: Shutter glass technology uses liquid crystal to deliver great 3D images with virtually no "ghosting", or image trailing, and synchronizes with your LG 3D-ready television to let you enjoy 3D technology to the fullest. The glasses themselves contain special liquid-crystal lenses, which actively lighten and darken with the 3D content. The full 3D effect is created when each eye sees a slightly different image.

Comfortable Fit: The LG AG-S250 3D active glasses feature a lightweight design, flexible nose-piece, and folding earpieces for a comfortable fit. The AG-S250 is even designed to fit over prescription glasses. The LG AG-S250 will fit most adult faces.

Rechargeable Battery: The LG 3D active shutter glasses feature a built-in rechargeable battery (5V/100mAh). The included USB cable connects between the glasses micro-USB port and the USB port on your compatible 2011 LG 3D-ready TV to charge the internal battery. The battery takes approximately 2-hours to fully charge.

Auto Off Function: The Auto Off function automatically turns the 3D glasses off if it senses no RF signal from the LG TV. A change in the distance or angle from the TV when the user moves can cause the Auto Off feature to activate.

Cautions:

  • Please note that if you watch 3D TV for too long while wearing 3D glasses, you may experience headaches or fatigue. If you experience headaches, fatigue, or dizziness, stop watching immediately and rest.
  • Pregnant women, people with heart issues, people who get easily nauseous, as well as person with epilepsy should not watch 3D videos.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very annoying, glasses shut off every 10 minutes. 3D picture great if and when they stay on. I wear prescription glasses and are comfortable wearing them.

Cons: Glasses keep shutting off. LG customer service not helpful at all!!! Stay away from these glasses!

LG 3D Glasses AG-S250

Written By Mikey, Crawfordville, FL on Friday, April 08, 2011

LG 3D (AG-S250) glasses are Nice, comfortable, easy to see thru. Other than
being a bit pricey, they shut off several times when watching a movie. Press the
button and their back on again. A bit of an aggrevation at times. But the 3D
veiwing is great!
