Cheapest Active 3D glasses in the world

Do you know that the Samsung SSG-4100GB universal Radio-Frequency (RF) controlled stereoscopic active glasses are as cheap as 19.99$ or 18.99$ at our new StereoscopyShop? They are also extremely light at 23 gr. including the small battery.

Pairing them with your TV is easy as they don't require strict line-of-sight with the TV set, and the battery lasts a long time ( 150 hours according to Samsung) . However, this small coin battery is not rechargeable. With the price are coming a few cost-related problems: the glasses are fairly flimsy, the arms are quite short and the fit is not trivial if you wear prescription glasses.
