cheap glasses, good for 3D – Re-useable Plastic Frame Resin Lens Anaglyphic Magenta + Green 3D Glasses Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
"Magenta-green" instead of "red-blue" glasses!
More stylish than your average cardboard glasses!
Fits the standard sized head!
Cons:
- IS NOT MEANT TO SEE RED-BLUE 3D PICTURES OR MOVIES!
- Made from cheap material that breaks fast!
Other:
Unlike sku.41565, these glasses are a bit wider, and fit (my) regular sized head!
Many Youtube 3D movies are optimized for Magenta-Green glasses (as well as Red and blue).
Magenta-Green glasses are optimized for 3D movies and pictures unlike red and blue glasses, they do not use colors that are very common in pictures.
For instance, when looking at a red flower through R&B glasses, the red filter on the left eye, will show the color very similar to what your brain perceives as 'white' (or red), while the blue side will show it as 'black' (essentially the blue side will filter out all the red).
With magenta-green glasses they use a different color palette, and thus both eyes are able to perceive something of the color spectrum.
Since magenta and green are less common colors in movies (save for a nature or grassy scene) most parts of a movie will be easier to see with these glasses, as long as the 3D Media player has the option to optimize the image for magenta green instead of red blue!
Bottomline:
Great for 3D movies optimized for this color palette (like youtube has)
Does not work for Red-Blue optimized 3D pictures or movies (too much ghosting)
Made out of cheap materials. If you're looking for better quality, buy these and swap out the glasses with your metal or higher quality sunglass frames.
