    Best Active 3D Glasses to use??

    Hello I'm a proud user of Philips 40PFL9705H LED 3D TV!

    I want to know which active 3D glasses are the best one to buy?

    So far I've found these two:
    Philips PTA02 - and - Philips PTA516

    Any ideas or testing of which are the best to buy even if it's not mentioned here?

    Thanks in advance!

    I also have the buzzing sound on 3 PTA516.
    Will this be part of some callback action when the new glasses have been released?

    Hi,

    the productions of the new glasses should start this week (this is what I heard). One can differentiate them by reading the serial on the glasses - they should have a "V3" at the end. This is what the support told someone in a german forum...

    Hi

    The PTA516 are better to veer than the PTA02. But bought my PTA516 have the buzzing. Let us know when the V3 are available. Would be great to get rid of the buzzing

    Hi,

    as far as I know the new glasses are already produced. Call you local Philips service and ask for a replacement.

    Just spoke with my local philips service (i live in greece) and they told me that they don't know anything about pta 516 mulfunctioning..They didnt even know if there is a new model..
    think is that i cannon find pta 516 in greece not even on ebay..
    is it sure that a new version produced?
    if i find the "old" pta516 you suggest me to buy them or wait more?
    is anyone sure regarding new version production?
    thanks for the fast reply.

    Hi

    maybe something not to mix up.
    There is no NEW Model as a replacement for PTA516.
    What you will get is still a PTA516 but one that has been build in the last Weeks.

    Maybe thats somehow confusing to speak about new Models with the Call Centers.

    Regards
    Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    Please help me on this one. I got a new Philips Cinema Platinum (58PFL9956H/12) TV. The enclosed active 3D glasses PTA516 produce an annoying buzzing noise. I checked the serial and there is no V3 at the end of the serial number. What is the best way to get those glasses replaced by the improved PTA516 glasses? Whom can I contact best? Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Hi,

    I have spoken to many CS reps in Philips and they have advised me that a new batch is coming outbut they don't know exactly the ETA. They advised to either buy the product from amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_...pta516&x=0&y=0
    or to wait and call back in two weeks to get an update regarding delivery. I would rather wait for the new batch to come out, were the buzzing issue will be hopefully fixed.... To be continued...=D

    I've tried to search for 3D glasses PTA517 on the net/google/ebay but found no one sells these...
    Do you have any idea from where I can buy accessories for Philips TVs...

    Are you talking about the Philips Active 3D glasses PTA517?

    I am also considering to buy 3D glasses for my new TV as I'll get next week...
    I have ordered Philips 55PFL5527T/12...
