For those of you who are not familiar with 3D there are two basic types, "passive" and "active". The LG 25-inch 3D monitor uses the passive type, which in my opinion is much better for home use.
The active glasses are heavy, they require batteries to make them work and, as you can imagine, after a while they become quite heavy. The passive glasses on the other hand, don't require any batteries and are as light as can be.
The glasses provided with the LG Monitor are great. They are so light you don't even realise you are wearing them. When you go to the cinema these are the glasses you are supplied with. They are really cheap to buy at around $15 - $20, compared to the active glasses, which are around $70 - $100.
