"A 3D experience"

A few years ago I treated my 2 boys to a new Bravia 3D TV from Sony. I did ,my research before buying and finally decided to buy direct from Sony as they not only matched the best price I could find but also * threw in* some great extras for free. Part of the deal included 2 pairs of 3D glasses to enable us to watch 3D movies.

The glasses.

The model number of the glasses I have is TDG- BR250. These have now been superseded by a later model. The glasses are made from plastic and are a wrap around design. They are available in both adult and child sizes and I opted for adult sized glasses so they would last.

The glasses need to be fully charged before use and this is done via the supplied USB cable. The cable simply attaches to the TV . The glasses have a small LED light at the side which flashes green when the glasses are in use and charged. When the charge is getting low the flashes increase in frequency until the light turns red and the glasses cease to function. According to Sony each charge should last for around 100 viewing hours. I have not timed how long a charge lasts but it is a long time! On the other hand the glasses charge very quickly.

The glasses have what Sony refers to as specialist active shutter technology and they are designed to work with all Bravia 3D TVs giving excellent 3D picture quality with no flicker.

My opinion.

The glasses feel very robust and despite several years of use are still in good condition. They are supplied with a draw string cloth bag for storage and although I would have preferred a hard case the bag does help to keep them from getting scratched.

I am not normally a fan of 3D glasses in the cinema as I find them uncomfortable and light to wear. However I have been pleasantly surprised at how comfortable these Sony glasses are. I like the wrap around style as it helps block out surrounding light.

The picture quality is excellent, although I still prefer to watch most of my movies in 2D!

Sony say that these glasses can be worn over prescription glasses although as I don’t wear glasses I can’t comment on how well they work.

I seem to remember that when I first bought these glasses they were retailing for around £70. I see that Amazon has this model on sale for just £17.95! At that price I think they are an excellent buy.
