I would like to hear opinion of these, who (or their coworkers) use 3D glasses at work. I need them for GIS (work will be done with Photomod, maybe SocetSet).

From what i have already found, choices are not great:

* Stereographics CrystalEyes 3 / CrystalEyes Workstation. "the best money can buy", most expensive also
* NuVision 60GX. Claims to be alternative to CrystalEyes 2, almost half price, not so comfortable to wear
* AnotherWorld Another Eye 2000 (http://www.stereo3d.com/aeye2000.htm). Are they suitable for professional work?

Most of the information is dated 1995. Are 3D glassed dead?

3D Glasses are "sort of" dead.     Somewhere near the late 90's and into 2000, 3D glasses stormed the marketplace.    For the most part, they're all based on a simple LCD shutter mechanism.    What really sets them apart are two things:

* Comfort/ergonomics (for example-  some 3d setups work well over prescriptions glasses, and some do not,.....   )
* Accompanying software

I used Stereo-3D glasses from eDimensional (  http://www.edimensional.com/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=29 ) for my PC gaming for quite some time.    Basically, the thrill wore off after a while, and I sold 'em on eBay.  (They DID however work VERY well)  I think that's representative of the marketplace:  Sure, they're available, but they're not the hot product they once were.

While the CrystalEyes product looks good and comfortable-   that's a *huge* price tag for LCD glasses.   My recommendation??  Try one of the inexpensive products (edimensional under $100, for example), and see "how it works" for you.

One problem that many people experience is vision discomfort and/or headaches after using them for extended periods of time.  You may discover that for yourself; that's why I recommend you go with an inexpensive solution to test-drive it.........
